"G'day my name's Kevin, I'm from Australia, I'm here to help."

1. Former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd started his TED talk with his unbelievably terrible catchphrase AND PEOPLE ACTUALLY CHUCKLED. GODDAMN.
"I have 15 minutes to walk through war or peace which is a little less time then they gave this guy to write a book called War and Peace."

7. And what would a Kevin Rudd speech be without dropping some Chinese on the audience?
"I have a little experience of the question back home of how you try to bring together two peoples who frankly haven't had a whole lot in common in the past. That's when I apologized to Australia's Indigenous peoples"

The full 20 minutes of TED talk is available here. Put it on, brew some tea and drift off into a deep sleep.
