This is water.

David Foster Wallace, author of many great works — including but not limited to Infinite Jest, which I have unfortunately not been able to finish despite multiple attempts — gave a commencement address to graduating seniors at Kenyon College back in 2005. But that was before the Internet gave birth to stuff that went viral (actually, believe it or not, YouTube was founded in 2005). Luckily for us, The Glossary made an awesome video inspired by Wallace’s speech that has now been seen by more than 3 million people. Which is great, because then maybe everyone will be a little more aware, a little more patient. You can listen to the full speech here.
