The most inspiring yet depressing yet hilarious yet horrifying yet heartwarming grad speech

My favorite commencement address is still the one Steve Jobs gave to Stanford in 2005.  However, a recent speech by Tim Minchin echoes many of the same thoughts in a hilarious and insightful way.  He gives dark but brilliant and slightly crass speeches to college graduates in Australia. At 7:22, he says my favorite thing ever about science. At 9:50, he expresses my entire life philosophy. And at 10:50, you'll think he's saying something utterly depressing until he turns it all around on you in a pretty profound and hilarious way.
