Video you so funny. You prove your point by doing the opposite of what you say people should do. Instead of finding out if people really think that way you rig a test to get a specific result.

He was purposely misleading people into believing x*2 by starting with 2, 4, 8. Basing his conclusions on that falsified data to back up a theory that he observed before the start of the test. Start with 1, 17, 94 if you want to see people's real reactions, amass a significant sample size and then make a summary if you don`t want me to call this a grade school project for the science fair.

How many of you guys actually listened to whole thing? The numbers have to be in increasing value: 5, 11, 17 fit; 12, 7, 20 do not. (And yeah, I got it fairly quickly. Maybe because he was in North Vancouver, where I live!)

....only got a few secs in, so I'm going to take a guess: It`s the amount of LETTERS in the numbers...two (3) four (4) eight (5)
Ah, I was wrong!

@bordo: you missed the point of the video. The point is not to 'get it` the point is to question your understanding.
