Life After Death by Powerpoint

I remember the days when I thought Powerpoint was the most fantastic learning and presentation tool! Now there are various options such as Prezi, Glogster, Animoto, and other presentation tools! One of the most memorable phrases was Death by Powerpoint. This video provides a humorous look at mistakes presenters continue to make with Powerpoint. This video came from a blog post, 78 Videos That Will Make You Go Huh, Whoa, Wow, Ahhh, and Ha-Ha, which was tweeted by @hrmason.

Did you feel you accomplished what you wanted to in a decade? If not, Steve Murray shares his life lessons in a humorous way. One of my favorite tips is, “If a fellow classmate pulls your pigtails or punches you that probably means they like you. Do not take this leap of logic into adulthood.” @Annapires shared this infographic. You may want to check the homepage to see the embedded frame.
