The quote that more solar energy hits the earth in 2 minutes than we use in a year is incorrect. The fact is that the total energy hitting the earth is about 0.02% of the energy we use in a year, and that is about 1.7 hours, maybe that is how the 2 minute mistake started. See "This theoretical potential represents more energy striking the earth’s surface in one and a half hours (480 EJ) than worldwide energy consumption in the year 2001 from all sources combined (430 EJ)"

How long did it take you to not say 'umm' or 'uhhh' when pausing/thinking and such? Very hard habit to break, I don't think I heard you use any of those in the entire video. Great stuff!
Messi is the wrong example here. Better use Ronaldo next time. It is confirmed by colleagues of Messi that Messi is more of a natural Talent while Ronaldo is the working bee.
the 10.000 hour concept is a nice idea for the masses to work their asses of. even the original scientists of the 10.000 study say it is wrongly interpreted by Malcolm.

I am Muslim I think what you said is right because kids or person who put in 8 hour a day is more likely to learn l listened to speech that was given by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Australia how he used put more time than his friends and he became champion of his sport

Not even close> There are currently seven and half billion people alive today and the Population Reference Bureau estimates that about 107 billion people have ever lived. This means that we are nowhere near close to having more alive than dead. In fact, there are 15 dead people for every person living. We surpassed seven billion dead way back between 8000BC and AD1.
