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.

The Best Science-Based Diet for Fat Loss


We should try to make these video threads thematical, but it's good so far.


Basically a transhumanism video but it goes into a good degree of detail about different kinds of stem cells and how they could possibly be used in the future to improve or extend life.


TIMELAPSE OF THE FUTURE: A Journey to the End of Time (4K)


What do PUAhaters get from posting on wizchan?


Who knows, but lets try to stay on topic of the thread. Just ignore em.


Short video on Thomas Edison


Quite a bit of interesting information about the biology of Sherpa


I thought this video was very interesting. It is about wood block printing, a process in which they carve blocks of wood that work sort of like stamps to make very detailed designs on papers that can be mass produced. The guy's enthusiasm is kind of infectious.


I remember watching that a few months (or was it years) ago.
Good video on the subject, and the presenter has a calm yet interesting way of presenting the information.





wtf i dont want to see some naked person


probably a witch from tries to troll or something, not watching that
isn't that a rule breaking?





good apes = democracy
bad apes = communism



Both are bad if you ask me. Especially for wizards.



So….Deadly Premonition is the best Cthulhu game?


A video on tribalism.



How hypnotism works.


Purifying gold through chemistry.


This is How Easy It Is to Lie With Statistics


A complement.
Extremely eye-opening video.


Not really sure this fits the thread well. I think I would fit better in the philosophy thread.

Well, lad


It isn't a educational video, is the point.
It is just a hour and 40 minute philosophic rant from a guy who has been doing pseudo-intilectual rants on YouTube for almost a decade.


You didn't even watch the video. Funny because he even explains why you didn't and why you're acting that way.


I used to keep up with over a dozen of quality channels but I stopped a while ago and barely remember their names. Instead, sets of more longform lectures on a single topic became more appealing to me. You don't have to watch the whole lecture at once and there is a sense of progression as you go through a course. And it doesn't smell like mass-media made with norms in mind as much. Example: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA20B690583E9931C


I watched enough to see that it wasn't a educational video and was exactly like all his other videos.
It simply doesn't really fit the thread.


This is all pop sci garbage that teaches nothing but theost surface level details . You'll never meant anything this way. Utter waste of time.


>You'll never meant anything this way


Here is a talk by Sabine Hossenfelder, a German theoretical physicist. I really enjoyed her book "Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray." It was interesting and genuinely funny. Her YouTube channel is also great.

Her blog:


Very interesting discussion.
>Mathematical Challenges to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution with Berlinski, Meyer, and Gelernter
Based on new evidence and knowledge that functioning proteins are extremely rare, should Darwin’s theory of evolution be dismissed, dissected, developed or replaced with a theory of intelligent design?

Has Darwinism really failed? Peter Robinson discusses it with David Berlinski, David Gelernter, and Stephen Meyer, who have raised doubts about Darwin’s theory in their two books and essay, respectively The Deniable Darwin, Darwin’s Doubt, and “Giving Up Darwin” (published in the Claremont Review of Books).


whats some good topics to stupid eductional wise? Looking for inspiration.


Pop science videos aren't supposed to teach anything to any one, not even at a surface level. They're religious videos preaching how great and powerful science is to the followers while never exposing them to anything of real depth or value. These videos are like learning the alphabet and claiming it's the same as writing a grand novel.


must be cold up on that high horse.


They are closer to just entertainment videos.


"Just" entertainment doesn't exist, it's like saying a comedian is just a comedian.


Is economics videos welcome?
This one helped me understand what hedge funds actually are.


Love these scientific tidbits of information, however, I hate the constant bombardment of politics in modern videos. It really ruins the experience. Also hate reading the comment section of YouTube videos. Need to cut that habit, trying to by only watching YouTube on my tablet with Newpipe. Newpipe disables comments.


YouTube comments have been generally garbage forever. You aren't missing anything by not bothering to read them the vast majority of the time.
I personally don't.

Polite sage for being slightly off topic.


Lecture on climate science.


Don't see where you guys are coming from


Would you feel for ENDLINGS?
