Mike Rowe is awesome in every possible way. Holy damn would I fuck his stuffing right out.
I would only bite them out in a loving and consensual way (or if I planned to eat him later)
also word up to simon666 he also knows that cats like crinkling sounds and that is the kind of practical knowledge that can make a guy really useful around the house.
Interesting dog-and-pony from a documentarian I respect. Where was he talking?
According to fora.tv, it's at something called "The Entertainment Gathering," which took place in Monterey, CA.
awesome choice as a commencement speaker
this was fantastic.

Mike Rowe is probably one of my favorite human beings ever.
People need to hear this.
I'll never scoff at the people presenting on Home Shopping Network again... At least until the next time someone gets a sword tip lodged in his retina.
This man is seriously up there on my list of personal heroes, alongside the likes of Frank Zappa and Brendon Small.

Just because I'm a dick about language, I have to point out that he reversed the definitions of anagnorisis and peripeteia.
anagnorisis [an‐ag‐nor‐ĭs‐is] (plural ‐ises), the Greek word for ‘recognition’ or ‘discovery’, used by Aristotle in his Poetics to denote the turning point in a drama at which a character (usually the protagonist) recognizes the true state of affairs, having previously been in error or ignorance.
peripeteia [pe‐ri‐pĕ‐tee‐ă] or peripety [pe‐rip‐ĕti], a sudden reversal of a character's circumstances and fortunes, usually involving the downfall of the protagonist in a tragedy, and often coinciding with the ‘recognition’ or anagnorisis. In a comedy, however, the peripeteia abruptly restores the prosperity of the main character (s).
Isn't that what he said?
The war on work is being won by poetv.com. Where no one does any work except for chet!
Despite being Mike Rowe, who gets 5 stars regardless - this is also a great talk.
Jesus. This really hit kind of close to home for me.
I love this man.

HSN probably made sure to never hire anyone like him again, either.
Totally awesome. Finally someone speaks about the people who really matter in this world.
that's it - I'm getting a job at the mill.

The sense of complacency line was worth five stars alone.
This guy is totally going to be a senator.
I've been linking to this one for a while. Beautiful!
If Mike Rowe walked up to me and asked me to marry him, I'd say yes without hesitation.
I like him, he's cool, he even makes some good points, but he's left me mostly unconvinced in this video.
Mike Rowe for president? I'm just sayin
