Surprising acceptance speech

Animator Brad Bird accepts the Winsor McCay Award at this year's Annie Awards (animation's version of the Oscars). I assume you missed the ceremony like I did, but this clip is totally worth watching. It features an impressive retrospective of his work, followed by a surprising acceptance speech (skip to 4:30 if you just want to see his speech).

Man politely robs a store

Kind of funny, but also kind of sad at the same time. Dude resorts to robbing a store to pay his mortgage, but keeps his manners.

Robot in a coffee shop
