I'm Readin' a Book, Man, I'm Readin' a Book!

This is a video that's been a pretty big hit with some of my friends and me lately (most of us are working on theses at the moment):

That was just hysterical. Man, how many times have i wanted to express that sentiment, and pretty much just like that, may God forgive me! LOL!
I'm not going to get that out of my head for a very long time. Thanks for posting that.

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
