Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Jobs (2013)

Steve Jobs: [narrating] When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way that it is, and your life is just to live your life inside the world and try not to bash into the walls too much. But that's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact. And that is that everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use. To shake off this erroneous notion that life is just there, and you're just gonna live in it, versus embrace it. Change it, improve it. Make your mark upon it. And once you learn that, you'll never be the same again. 

I'm seeing Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs with Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet tomorrow at the New York Film Festival, so it seems an apt time to light a candle for Ashton Kutcher's strangled attempt at not playing a buffoon. You were just a candle in the wind, Kutch.

No contest. Fassbinder's the better actor.
