    I can see the general idea behind this talk, but the truth is there is a big line, not a fine line, between executives using humor at work and lower class workers, who are struggling to meet their deadlines and all other requirements from their management...really, I think in most fields, where work is really demanding there is no time for humor. And don't even get me started on the colective idea: even if there is one person who uses humor, the other department colleagues might not be that approving of thei humourus colleague. So this is highly debatable. Maybe when you reach an executive position you can control things better, and so you can inflict the values you think are best of each situation.

    This was a great Tedx Talk, I totally agree with Andrew's take. To bad in 2020 the SJW's, identity politics, and virtue signalers have made humor in the workplace virtually impossible.

    @Steven Wright Now that is much more interesting as you have been specific and I actually get now what you didn't like. Your point that you feel that the banking system has limited social value is much more relatable (and of course debatable - as in something we could debate - I have sympathies with your viewpoint). My response was of course just mimicking your sentence structure back to you - which has actually provoked a great reflection back from you - which I must admit to having been touched by. Here's to a kinder world (and here's a song suggestion - Be More Kind by Frank Turner) Very best, Nic

    Nic I believe that I deserved your rebuke but we are both wrong. We are neither of us sorry or right in our assertions. As a bipolar man my subjective anger takes control of me at times and Andrews arrogance and, in my opinion, unskilled comedic timing demonstrated what harm can also be done with comedy. A networking ex banker using comedy to justify an immoral status quo is a far darker humor than I think many of us, including him, are aware of. So this is an apology with conditions; I am genuinely sorry for causing the offence that I had intended to however Andrews insincerity and clumsy comedy need constructive criticism, We don't all see arrogant self promotion as a positive set of tools for the benefit of our species. Your statement that I am not kind should be restated; that was not a kind thing to to write and there I would agree. I hope that we can all get on better and I can be nicer ❤

    I don't chase happiness any more just balance ,I can't Imagine being HAPPY all the time , that would be boring and meaningless. If we were Happy all of the time then what about all of those other wonderful emotions ? It is unrealistic and senseless to chase happiness ,it is exhausting!

    It is more than 33% of time at work from our lives at 40 hours per work due to hour lunch and the commutes and the time preparing for work. Then of course overtime. US labor laws should lower time at work. It is sad.

    Back in1974 I did a stint as a high school teacher. Nearly everyday I used humor to motivate my students. It was by far the most powerful motivator ever deployed. I faced scathing criticism from my fellow teachers and the school principal. Needless to add all my ardent critics were absolutely gobsmacked when the results of the external exams came out and out of 117 students across 3 different classes only 1 failed and 86 passed with distinction. This was the best results the school had attained.

    starCO2oil, are you f’n serious? Einstein was a noble human being is most all respects. He helped Dubois found the NAACP from his home in Germany, and shared his little house at Princeton with artists who were blacklisted in the McCarthy witch hunts. He paid them while they lived with him so they could house and support their families. He protested loudly the use of his genius to build the atom bomb. and gave support to the oppressed and marginalized. But it’s true he had a bad divorce in early life and so he offered to give his wife the entire Nobel Prize money he won in 1905, so yeah, she had to wait 9 years for her settlement. He gave her the total prize. Yes he later married his cousin and they remained together the rest of their lives, but at that time it was not illegal or considered immoral to marry inside extended family. And yes he was an agnostic who did not believe in the Judaic-Christian concept of God, and said so openly when interviewed about his religion. This made him a hated man in Christian America. Which part of his life leads you to say “Einstein was not a good man”?
