    As a teacher, you may find Sir Ken Robinson’s TED video quite interesting.

    You’re right about all of them being awesome. There may be one or two that don’t really get it done, but for the most part, they’re quite amazing.

    When you mentioned Shermer’s talk at TED, I did recommend you watch them all 😉

    If you have the time, run through the TED videos, there’s lots of gems in them, from a vast range of subjects.

    That still stands for everyone, watch them!

    And don’t forget the great quote from Daniel Dennett:

    “The secret to happiness is to find something more important than yourself and dedicate your life to it.”
