Dear YOYOs,

I am going to be the host in 01/23(Tue.)
Again I am going to use a TED talk as my topic. I hope you will be inspired by this TED talk.
Enjoy it!

Questions for discussion:
Session One:

1. Why do origins matter so much? Why do we respond so much to our knowledge of where something comes from? What do you think?

2. If you like somebody, they look better to you. Beauty is in the eyes of beholder. Do you agree with it? Do you think if you like somebody, you also like their behavior? Does it imply if somebody look worse to you, you don't like them or their behavior?

3. It hurts more if you believe somebody is doing to you on purpose. What do you think? If you are hurt by someone, do you think the hurt will be enlarged because you don't like him? (You wouldn't want to believe he isn't doing to you on purpose because you don't like him.)

Session Two:
4. Joshua Bell's experiment is interesting. Why 1,097 people who passed by, only seven stopped to listen to him, and only one recognized him? People don't like classical music? People couldn't tell the amazing sound of Stradivari violin? Or people just look down on street artists? Do you have the confidence to say that "if I were there, I would have recognized the beautiful sound of the violin or the excellent performance"?

5. MRI scanner experiment shows that if you believe you are drinking expensive stuff, you will feel happier. Barry Schwartz said "The secret to happiness is low expectations!" (The Paradox of Choice) Is there any connection with tonight's topic? You expect it's an original but in fact it's a forgery. That's why you are so unhappy? You are not expecting you are drinking very expensive wine, then when you know it's very expensive, you feel so happy? What do you think?

6. John Milton wrote, "The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven." What's your opinion?
