Grow Your Brain (Interesting Version)

This is the same presentation as "Grow Your Brain (dull version)" but how much more interesting is this to look at? You'll notice that this slide deck has a lot more visual imagery, much less text, more slides, and actually requires me (the presenter). The dull version was sort of a document - you could read it and didn't need a presenter to discuss the content at all, really. This presentation doesn't really work without the presenter, and that's the point! Who wants to give a presentation in which they themselves are irrelevant? It may not be the world's best presentation slide deck ever, but it's a step in the right direction.
