BehindTheMedspeak: Palliative care nurse reveals top 5 regrets of people on their deathbed

Profound and strangely exhilarating: we have a chance to get things right before we arrive at ours.

The List:

1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

2 I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.

3. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

4. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

5. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.

Fair warning.

Best anti-insomnia movie EVER: Watching Gray Cat sleep will put you down for the count (through Google Glass)

YouTube caption: "This morning I sat down and Gray Cat got up off her toasty cable box and walked over and lay down in my lap. Though I'd had a good night's sleep and didn't feel at all drowsy, once she snuggled in between my legs and closed her eyes, I found mine hard to keep open as well. Nevertheless, I tried to keep my head still and create a 5-minute-long video using Google Glass that, once enhanced and stabilized with YouTube's proprietary algorithms, ought to make a dandy visual sleeping pill equivalent. I mean, just watching the first couple minutes of the video, I started to fall asleep. Try it, you'll like it. If it doesn't help you fall asleep, let me know and I'll cheerfully refund twice what you paid for it. Wait a sec...."
