hey guys for speech class im doing an informative speech on black holes. I cant seem to think of a good attention getter to start off the speech, anyone have any good ideas?
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.
"You're born, you take shit. Get out in the world, you take more shit. Climb a little higher, you take less shit. Until one day you're up in the rarified atmosphere and you've forgotten what shit even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake, son."
