10 TedTalks Worth Watching.

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”- George Bernard Shaw
1. Love Statistics ? Interested in Global Health ? No ? Neither am I but this TedTalk is worth watching. The talk is by Hans Rosling who is a Swedish medical doctor, academic, statistician and public speaker.
Tags: Medicine, Awareness, Statistics, Global Health. 

2. "Why People Believe Weird things?" My favourite Tedtalk, if you enjoy it (you probably will) then try reading Michael Shermer's books.Tags: Skepticism, Science, Debunking Bad Science.
3. Khan Academy, if you never heard of it before then you really have learned anything on the internet, one of the best free education sources out there and the only reason I passed linear algebra. It's very interesting story on how he Salman Khan started with the academy and spoiler alert: Bill Gates comes on at the end of the talk.
Tags: Reinventing Education.

4.Very entertaining TedTalk, regarding Education and Creativity, watch the first few minutes and if you don't laugh close it. Btw does anyone think the speaker, Ken Roberson has a very weird laugh ?
Tags: Education, creativity.

5. You know what, i'll stop giving a small intro for every talk.. all the following talks are awesome. This one is Daniel Pink on Motivation.
Tags: Motivation.
6. One of my favourite authors, a great neuroscientist and speaker/writer.
Tags: Morals, Science.
7.I am not into biology but this is kinda mind=blown.
Tags: Bacteria
8. On Choices, very thought provoking.
9. TedxTalk, not as famous as the other but too motivational to be missed out, especially since it's given by an amazing 26-year old.
10. Michael Specter: The Danger of Science Denial.

Camel Meat Sandwich
1.Camel Burgers
People have a lot of presuppositions relating camels and the Middle East. I am afraid this is going to be a  big let down because Camels are not as common as people think; most of the people living here never even rode one or tried the awesome Camel meat Burgers.. mainly because there is only a handful of restaurants that specialize in Camel meat.

Red Bull Gives You Wings ?

Not really, according to the advertisement wording, it gives you wiings... not wings.
Probably done for legal reasons, getting sued by people that didnt get wings is stupid, but with the way the legal system is set up in North America...
I am not sure if advertising authorities have rules about using meaningless words, even if they did, I am sure that in some language out there WIINGS means something.

If you have any info about the advertising or reason behind using wiings, please let me know.
