Ted Talks is a program that invites guest speakers to speak on an array of topics. The conversations are limited to 20 minutes, but I have seen many go over the mark and many more in 2 and 3 minute spots. They can be very inspiring and entertaining. All the talks are free access on the net

This one is a bit unusual. I don't know what peeps will think...but it's a kind of thing I like, and seek out particularly when I'm tense and feel mentally cornered/bogged/cycle-trapped. It's more performance than "talk," and it popped in my head cuz of u.'s narrative thread---

Well, if Sheldon says he has doubts, who am I to argue.

There was this one with these really unusual dancers or something, can't remember the name for the life of me and am about to head off to work so no time for a search, but one of the dancers looks animatronic and they all do a routine together for the climax. I saw it first in 2010 IIRC so it's at least that old.
