  • This is now my favorite talk.

  • Z M 

    “ Are you a vertical asymptote, because your beauty has no limits !”

  • He made me blow air slightly more furiously out of my nose more than once in this video, he is a funny guy

  • "Way Above Average, dont be Mean" killed it !

  • Wow That's Fun

  • I didnt know chandler did TedTalks

  • “When something goes wrong with computers, we get error message but when something goes wrong with people , we get 'feelings' . ”

  • This guy is hilarious.

  • It was not surprising to learn he used to be a nerd. He's actually still one, or at least has a typically nerdy sense of humour, cleverness over emotions. It's an intellectual sense of humour rather than an emotional one.

  • Proctor and Gamble IT Project Manager. Oh dear lord, that's gonna be an AWFUL job. I say this as a pharmacy-tech turned software engineer, so I know what I'm talking about. If he wasn't getting 6-figures right out of college, then he was being straight up abused.

  • I love laughter.. do you know where I can buy a sense of humor?

  • Aaaaaaaaamin0001f64b‍♀️

  • At the end of it, I was thinking: What is wrong with this talk?... The audience :) At one point only one guy is laughing 0001f602 The rest is lost in thoughts about their grandmother!

  • I'm also an INTJ. My problem is, that every time when I'm trying to be humorous, I'm offend someone.

  • The irony of when he said "it improves understanding aids" and I misunderstood what he meant until I looked at the screen.

  • It is true that you can learn humour, but certain people just naturally have it more than others

  • this guy is not funny and not many people are, but he has a sense of humor, which is important

  • "if humans came with error messages", haha

  • I started dating my boyfriend because he would tell me nerdy pick up lines. It's the right kind of humor. Wrong kind of female.

  • This talk was so enjoyable! Humor in all the right places in great doses. ^^
