TED fave: Is 4 a.m. the new midnight?

I love ted and while I try to watch almost all the videos they have posted, I always find one that I missed and ends up being a favorite.  This one is quite entertaining.  While I am up at 1:01am on Thanksgiving eve reading about GTD mac apps I stumbled upon this gem.

series of coincidences surrounding that most surreal of hours, 4
