49. Personally, I can't go into large crowds without
fainting. Something happens when I am in a crush of bodies, standing up for a long gets too suffocating and I get faint. I always have to stand on the periphery of a crowd. So, it really has nothing to do with the speaker, just how packed in the audience is.
