Douglas Adams Lecture

Boing Boing posted this wonderful lecture by the late Douglas Adams.  I just had to share it because one, he wrote Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, two because I love smart people, and three because he was a procrastinator much like myself.  For example, he said this regarding deadlines:
