Comments:
- The Freudian slip video was a great find and addition to the project.
- Could have been a bit more interactive, but overall you met this requirement.
- The layout could use some improvement. Even by adding heading and subtitles, a viewer would know exactly what the sections were about.
- Some of the graphics were redundant. Choose the best graphic to make the point.
- Be sure to properly integrate, connect, and introduce the more distant topics (serial killers etc.) so that it doesn't detract from the overall purpose of the page
