Dying Advice - The Last Lecture

Imagine you were told you had only a few months to live.

What would you do?
How would you handle it?

What would you want to say to your family???

Moreso, how would your attitude towards life and death change?

Its a question we sometimes ponder when we see it in a movie or are sitting around BS'ing about things with friends, etc., but one professor from Carnegie Mellon University is actually living this scenario.

CMU has this lecture series called "The Last Lecture" which is for professors or other speakers to give a talk as if its the last time they'd get to, and in this case, its for real.

Professor Randy Pausch is dying of pancreatic cancer and gave a lecture that is incredibly inspirational to say the least.

You can't help but admire him for his strength and positive outlook on his situation.

I strongly encourage all to watch it:
