Georgia Tech Speech Promises Students They Can Invent An IRON MAN Suit!

I need to go to Georgia Tech because I want to make a freakin’ teleporter!  At a freshmen welcoming event, new students at the Georgia Institute of Technology received the greatest speech of all time.  The speech promised them that they would be able to achieve the impossible and invent whatever amazing crap they want.

The dude giving the speech, Nicholas Selby, was so hyped-up he sounded like a coked up pro-wrestler (essentially, any pro-wrestler).  To make it even better, the mechanical engineering major gave the speech while Strauss’s “Also Sprach Zarathustra” blasted in the background.  That is “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair’s theme music.  Selby is officially my hero!

Selby enthusiastically stated (more like screamed) “If you want to change the world, you’re at Georgia Tech! You can do that! If you want to build the Iron Man suit, you’re at Georgia Tech! You can do that! If you want to play theme music during your convocation speech like a bad ass, we’re at Georgia Tech, we can do that! I am doing that!”

I want to end this article by stating how lazy much of America is.  We are wasting all our time curing silly diseases when we could be using our potential to invent time machines, arc reactors and other cool $^%$.  I am still baffled why cars are still using wheels.  Have you people ever seen the damn Jetsons?  Thank heavens for Nicholas Selby and the geniuses at Georgia Tech!
