#1 I disagree Thunders, I find this guy really irritating, he loves the sound of his own voice, probably a church going Christian. Why the feck did he need to go to China or wherever he is to take this selfie video?

The only thing interesting about this video is the first ten seconds, where you get to see the inspiration for the Dalek. :D

#3. Judge-Jake He is in Korea.

And he is really talking about what is known as selection bias or what happens when one doesnt take a proper randomized sample.

And yes, the selfie stick shtick. That seems to be his thing. Pacing about and reflecting on a topic. I dont get a Christian vibe, he is talking about statistics which is really science about analysis, interpretation, replication, falsifiablity etc and that is kind kind of an anathema to most who are content with accepting things on beliefs and not facts and probability.

And that woman, not a Dalek, you insensitive lout >:) , is wearing the traditional dress called a hanbok. The 'belt' is up on the chest below the breasts. They are beautiful to look at but apparently miserable to get into and hard to maneuver in due to the multiple layers.

#4 Austin It's a fecking Dalek, look again. If you rearrange the letters in hanbok you get boknah which is Klingon for Dalek.

I heard what he was talking about, why do you need to explain it again, it was self explanatory. I just find him irritating and I'll bet you 2$ that he is a church attending Christian. :squirrel:

#5 I agree with Austin, I don't think he is a church going Christian at all, but my opinion is not based on evidence, but perception. I have always liked him. <3
