  1. Awkward barely begins to describe it...

    Did he say the type was all off? Did his autocue bugger up or something?

    Glad to see you guys aren't ripping into him like most other sites seem to be doing. A lot of people would choke like that if placed in front of thousands of people to speak and then lost their script. I was trying to think of what alternatives he would have if he didn't know the material by heart and it would probably have been much worse to wing it than to just walk off like he did. Regardless of how famous he is he's still just a person.

    Yeah. Maybe he was sick or something. It was awkward, but yeah standing up there and throwing up everywhere or giving a painful presentation would have been worse..

    Oh dear. I can't stand public speaking myself, so I definitely feel bad for him :(

    I've been in that situation before -- not fun at all.

    "Public Speaking" I couldn't do it at all. Sometimes I think it requires a small level of public arrogance, that I don't have within my character. Reading from a screen would take away from the tension of making a mistake. I still couldn't do it even with a screen. I'm happy in my little corner, never striving to be the center of attention.
