Last day of living on campus

TED talk about the physical universe by Murray Gell-Mann. Particularly interesting mention of life, mind and chemical bonds as emergent properties at the end: "you don't need something more to get something more".

Another TED talk, this time by Larry Brilliant about optimism and global warming. Includes a computer simulation of what rising sea-levels will do to Bangladesh even in a best-case scenario.
