Every year, Mormons hold something called "Campus Education Week," it basically is a week on BYU-Provo Campus where any Mormon who has an expertise in something, or especially genial insights to share, can give a 4-day, 50-minute class about it. I attend classes nonstop from 8:30am until the last class ends at 9:25pm. Each year I walk away with at least a few life-changing insights. Here is a condensed (by about half) version of my notes.

Here is what I have so far. What are your favorites? (Most taken from my favorite website, Quora.com)
