    'Fuck.


    Now that I have your attention, I'd like to discuss black holes.'

    Please don't post multiple threads. It's irritating.

    Anyway, I responded in your other thread in the Creative Writing Forum.

    Get a girl to come up to the front of the room and lift her skirt, then say "This is a real Black Hole..." then start your speech.

    thanks!
    As I understand the term "blackhole" is actually a misnomer, and perhaps you can use that fact as an opener for your speech. Also, you can start out with a joke along the lines of, "Blackholes are like a bad relationship: they start out with a bang only to implode on itself." You can also start out by saying, "Though blackholes are perceived to be objects of fear and emptyness they are actual a natural part of a star's life." Finally, you can open up with the fact that "blackhole" actually takes many forms and that it is not a term that implies a void.

    Good luck with your speech.

    Get everyone to stand up, shake off and sit back down.

    "Hi everyone, before I start, I know it is pretty warm in here and you've been sitting for a while...so if you'd like to stand up, shake off/quick stretch and sit back down".


    Suddenly you have snapped them out of the...relaxed...bored state most people are in during talks.

    You've hooked their attention. Its a winner.
