On the serious side: don't set up barriers for yourself why you can't / 
shouldn't do a presentation, why some aspect of it isn't ideal.  If 
someone babbles about language feature X, say "I don't know" and see if 
someone in the audience does.  Perhaps be prepared to make comparisons 
with 1 other language, but geez, don't raise the bar oh-so-high.
