Quote from George Michael

George Michael: Hey, guys. Yo. Hey. All right, question: How many of you wake up with a knot in your stomach? Right. Me, too. But I like to think of that knot in my stomach as a little ball of energy. You know, it keeps me frightened when I should be calm. It pumps adrenaline through my veins when ordinary blood is what I need. But, you know, all of these things can create a winning spirit. One that I would like for all of you to share in. So that we can turn those knots in our stomach into why-nots. You know? People say there there's no such thing as privacy on the Internet. Well, why not?
Man: Why not?
