I recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.

I especially find the science, technology, futurology, AI videos very uplifting from the usual pessimism I dwell on.

Sounds contradictory but let's see the argument. *click*


Too oversimplify the main fuel source before industrialization was wood and plant matter being burnt on mass.
Also synthetic fertilizers are a factor
and plants love CO2.

Probably some other stuff I am forgetting but that is the gist of it.


A vid about why Moms are so into alternative medicine.


That's all very interesting, but what about non-buffet all you can eat restaurants where you normally order things from a menu?





I am not clicking unlabeled links.






if you are that lazy it won't make a diference regardless



It ain't about being lazy. It is about not trusting your troll ass.


…Why is he barechested?


No clue as it has nothing to do with what he is talking about, but it isn't actually a violation of rule 7 since it isn't sexualized. Just weird.


is it even possible?

That's why there's no electric passenger planes yet. Send in the drones!


Bit of pop science news on some promising cancer research.


I'm looking for something that's longer and created by someone less popular


We ain't your personal search butlers, if you were asking for request.

I would also argue that the video you posted doesn't fit within this thread (it isn't a educational video, it is a conspiracy documentary) and would probably fit better in the documentary thread.


Was looking up how to read machinist blue prints and this was somehow the best video I have seen on the topic because it actually just gets straight to the point and directly to the information I wanted.

Armed with this knowledge I just might be able to pull of the project I have in mind.


Speaking of future car stuff having pretty major current problems that aren't talked about.
Self driving cars are kind of a scam in their current incarnation.

The heat death of the universe might be survivable.


>surviving something a trillion years from now
oh yeah, that's real relevant


aging isn't mandatory.

explain lifespans??


people choose to be humans, they choose to reproduce and nail themselves to the wheel. They choose to believe that it's the best choice and the only choice.


what the hell are you talking about?



About what is causing plants to become less nutritional.

Got any on geology?


I remember watching a in depth documentary on titanium that I could try to find if that is of interest but otherwise not off the top of my head no.


how the heck does that work, it looks like a real life pixelation filter


Topical ~ Coronavirus Explained & What You Should Do


wow just like literally every MSM talking head is pushing 24/7


At least the video *explains* why it is dangerous and what to do instead of reporting numbers infected/dead.
Before this, I didn't know why ventilators were needed.


Super cool seeing in detail how color laser printers actually work.


It's not dangerous. It's no worse than the flu. Most people never even develop symptoms.


5 things I didn't know I wanted to know about power outages and what linemen do.

A lot of things I took for granted are actually pretty interesting and it seems this is one of them.



>It's no worse than the flu.
It's worse and about as contagious. Bad combination for us humans.


Bubonic plague had a mortality rate of over 50%. The Chinese Flu has a mortality rate of less than 1%. It's really not that bad.


With modern medicine the bubonic plague would have a very low mortality rate. If corona was around 100 years ago it would be really scary, probably much worse than the spanish flu and depending on how well an imunization works or how well immunity builds up it still could be if this thing sticks around for a couple of decades.


>If corona was around 100 years ago it would be really scary
If corona was around 10 years ago it would be treated the same way swine flu was. Without widespread internet literacy the whole "shut down society" thing is kind of impossible. Unless you want people to actually start starving to death.

We have modern medicine now. It's kind of stupid to pretend that this disease is any real threat at all to society when the mortality rate is so low and like 40% of people don't even get any symptoms. In the past, reality would keep media panic loops like this in check, but now that the internet is a thing I suppose we have to look forward to a recession and bureaucrats rushing to erode civil liberties as quickly as possible every time a mildly scary new disease pops up.


Anyone got good videos on quantum immortality?


Do we look like a search engine to you?


A bit about blood types with a focus on the rarest blood type in the world.


Regular flu ~ contagious but mild <1% death rate among the infected
Ebola ~ certain death but not contagious
Covid-19 is somewhere in between. Sure, you may survive it but not before passing it on to 3 or 4 others. Exponential growth ~ do you comprehend it?

The Thought Emporium
When we think of science and scientists, we tend to think of people in perfect white lab coats, working in a shiny and expensive lab. Well I'm here to break that image. From biohacking and biology, to nuclear physics and nanotech, any topic is fair game. I don't just talk about concept and theory, I do the real science. Under controlled conditions, I'll use high voltage, corrosive solutions, extreme temperatures and more to create some very exciting machines and materials. Best of all, I'll show all of it can be done at home using as many off the shelf and DIY parts as possible.
