Improv Everywhere: Gotta share!
Not necessarily. I am 19 and I don't feel the need for that fictitous, fleeting validation. I'm not snobby nor affluent. I hate that my generation shares the most trivial things. How will we ever advance as a society? There's too much time wasted in the trenches on social media sites, and as someone already commented it's a platform for advertisers to "better serve our [the consumer's] needs". In reality, over usage of these sites or their "help" only leads to more powerful big businesses. Which aren't necessarily bad on their own, but face it, their influence reaches further than anyone can really pinpoint. Myself not excluded from their influence. I imagine it can't be much different for you. Just my thoughts and opinions. Good bye, Tedders.

WHAT IF your top 5 personal ideas met collaborative action, write here. A TED BUCKET LIST of ideas worth spreading w/ angels in the wings.
1. Inhibit my self; always seek to cultivate a deeper sense of self. I would to hope to establish really deep roots, ideally shaped and grounded in my pursuit of good character. Having good character gives me a sense of peace that little else does. 2. Receive revelation and constant affirmation from God that I'm coinciding with His will. That is very important to me. Although, I don't believe this is something that *I* can really do or influence. If it is, please someone let me know how. I want to live a spirit led and spirit filled life with the Holy Spirit guiding me every inch of the way. 3. I would LOVE to found a children's education center and sports complex. A place where children can get together and learn innovative ways of living; a place where they can ignite the creativity that is already inside of them, and a place where they can develop a sense of self. 4. Be a storm chaser. 5. Keep in shape and explore the adventures of life. I would love to have a home in Colorado, or a place where I can invest time in adventure sports. (Kayaking, Hiking, Mountain Climbing, White water-rafting, etc.) Find home where I can finally befriend a golden retriever, off road in my jeep, and just enjoy nature - my lifelong desire and dream. All of this love for myself is a renewed feat which I'm proud of, but my list for helping others and life experiences I hope to have goes on and on and on. Thank you for sparking this fire in me and reminding me of the things closest to my heart since childhood. You've reignited the fire in me by simply asking this question; it really helps to put things in perspective and comparing the desires of my heart with the desires of others' hearts on TED causes me to remember where I stand and what makes me me. Thank you :) Later TED community! ^ - ^

Around 11:30 when the girl is supposed to be lowering and raising the other "volunteer's" arm... the magic guy is moving his leg to tell the "volunteer" when to lower and raise his arm. FAKE
