I  geek out on creative ways to analyze data, I LOVE it.  So when my buddy Jeff forwarded me the below l actually watched it twice in a row.  It is a little long but absolutely worth it.

    Was checking out your blog per your FB request — love what you’ve done with the place! And so glad I poked around a bit. Have been a big fan of TED talks for a while now, but hadn’t gotten around to this one yet. Really fascinating, thought-provoking and even a little mind-bending. (Thought the recent comment left was interesting re: how the stats don’t take into account happiness. Commenter and his wife had six kids which sorely affected his wife’s health — cutting longevity — but greatly increased their happiness. Anyway, food for thought.)
    Keep up the good work.
