And there is the usual annoying explosion of sound from Ted at the very start of the video, putting off many listeners before the talk even begins.

Stop putting high school tedx's on your official channels. I'm sure this would be fun as a student but as a viewer its not the most exciting and the camerawork is absolutely awful!

Unfortunately not very educational at all. Neither of the chemical reactions were explained…
