Eugene Mirman offered these 5 tips for life during a speech at his former high school’s (Lexington High School) graduation in 2009.
- Don’t forget to follow your dreams — unless your dreams are stupid — like eating all the cake in Arlington.
- Be kind to people.
- Don’t get too excited when you read the Fountainhead.
- In this time of recession, it is the time for invention. Did you know both the telephone and the automobile were invented during recessions? So was “talking dirty.”
- Things can kill you. So just keep that in mind, you fearless-know-it-alls.
