A fun talk that demands audience participation, even if we are too vanilla... :-)

I know that the voting was performed by a third party site but it would have been good to see the number of votes cast for each option.

Thoroughly entertaining, thought-provoking and informative. It's a brilliant way to explore challenges we face every day, various ways to deal with them, and possible consequences.
