All that wisdom... and then suddenly I notice the little Apple logo on his shirt. Oh well.

@deathxtra i agree
his words come with experience and different perspective he has witnessed, i also am in highschool. my last exam on wednesday and it's higher education for me (i love lecturers /lectures)

His comments around 9:00 about how Amazon/Netflix should recommend books/movies that are the exact opposite of what you normally buy remind me of a Zach Galifianakis bit from Live at the Purple Onion

@zekumi

Lets hope you're being purposely ironic, because if not you are exactly the kind of egocentric person he spent the first 12 minutes talking about.

(if you are being ironic, that was actually very funny...)

Young highschooler, and I love listening to Stephen Fry. Am I weird?

I hope not, otherwise I'm weird too. When I go to sleep at night and dream happy dreams, Stephen Fry is my uncle, David Attenborough is my grandad, and Carl Sagan is my da. The world is a better place with thoughtful people like these.

Well, the first 12 minutes or so of that didn't resonate with me at all. :/
I usually really enjoy what he has to say.

I'll come back and watch the rest later when I have time. Hope it picks up.

@Entre

I'm pretty sure you're the type of commenter Fry was talking about here.

IRONYYYYY!!!!

@ Entre who said "everyone who these things are new to is an idiot... I'm sorry. all these things are things people should have been thinking about already unless they're only 12 years old. this really isn't rocket science. it's common sense and human decency"

The fact that you even made that statement means you have no idea what this guy is talking about, and you should probably look a little deeper into what he's saying. Nobody want's to be around the guy who declares everyone inferior because he believes his interpretation should be fundamental knowledge, such that lack of it makes you an idiot.

EntrE, that's the point he's making. Everyone should be good, and most try to be good. But for self-centered reason, most of us fail to be who we are, and come off as jerks.

He puts heartfelt feelings into words, which is MUCH different than putting thoughts into speech.

I love you, Stephen Fry <3

He's such a brilliant mind! I'm glad to have lived in the same time as him and to have been able to hear his beautifully crafted words!

I'm sorry Stephen, apparently im not supposed to write a comment (or maybe he was only talking about negative ones) but once again you astound me with your insight and kindness by sharing your knowledge and thoughts on a subject for no other reason than to try and give people a lovely bit of mental gristle to chew on.
