Steve Jobs gives Inspirational Graduation Speech...

.. and speaks in favor of dropping out. (I know the feeling.)

Steve Jobs told Stanford University graduates Sunday that dropping out of college was one of the best decisions he ever made because it forced him to be innovative — even when it came to finding enough money for dinner.

In an unusually candid commencement speech, Apple Computer’s CEO also told the almost 5,000 graduates that his bout with a rare form of pancreatic cancer reemphasized the need to live each day to the fullest.

UPDATE: Drew Curtis’ Fark.com adds the following caption:

"Steve Jobs tells Stanford grads that dropping out of college spurred his creativity. Adds that heroin, promiscuous sex helped make him well-rounded."

"*Ali-G* Respec’!" :P
