    If you want to know why "fun" is part of the mission of this forum and the value of the "like" button, here is a video for you:



    The ending is quite thought provoking so please stay with it. It is only 12 minutes.

    He speaks too fast, he sounds like a programmed robot.
    And he could have said it better in just two minutes, and slowly.
    But yeah, people who are too serious are dangerous; example ...
    Work hard, get busy, party hard, have fun, be happy. Love and respect.

    Ted talks must be 10 minutes so sometimes presenters get forced into talking fast. I agree he should have said a bit less and slower.

    Did you know that 87.39% of all statistics are just made up?

    I despise statistics; a weird manipulation of data to suit your agenda.
    In college a heavy-duty math teacher [NOT a statistics teacher] demonstrated to the class with statistics that 2 +2 = 5.
    I think the Federal Reserve has extremely advanced statistic formulas; that is why everything is fine with $$$TRILLIONS of debt.
