Worst TED talk ever?

Does the graph of 5 people, with 5 choose 2 = 10 connections bug you when he says 120? What about when he shows 10 people, with 10 choose 2 = 45 connections, and then says 10 factorial is approximately 3.6 million? Does it irk you that he never actually describes what an "interaction" is? Skip to 6 minutes and 30 seconds if you are lazy or bored.
