What you want is irrelevant, what you have chosen is at hand.

R.I.P. Randy Pausch.

You got me with the head fake in your last lecture. What a legacy to leave your kids!

One of Pausch's dreams was to be Captain Kirk. As the next best JJ Abrams gave him a small part in the Star Trek movie coming out next year. I'll be the strange guy in the theater cheering by myself when he comes on screen.

Thanks guys.

After reading your comments I guess I won't be the only one cheering Randy's cameo.

What an amazing guy.

Everybody always comes back to life in the sequel.

Alas, I don't think Randy will share that fate. :-(
