Life Lessons I've Learned at the Movies

Gump200In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips that lasts about an hour, Larry discusses life lessons he's discovered while sitting in darkened movie theaters.

Some are silly, like learning the hard way not to plop down in a movie seat too soon after coming into a dark theater from the bright sunshine outside.

Others are more serious and motivational, such as life really is like a box of chocolates (full of surprises) and the importance of holding onto dreams.

There are scarier things you can do than take the stage of a comedy club for the first time and try to make paying customers laugh.  I just can't think of any right now.
