Now that the Olympics are over we can really reflect back on what we accomplished athletically this summer, and I’m talking as humans. Turns out the fastest human is still Usain Bolt. Take a look at this video and see how he fares against all the Olympic sprinters of the past.

Making toys cooler through electronics.

Now I don’t know a whole lot about electronics but this guy seems to be talking in terms that someone who had a basic knowledge of electronics and circuits could actually understand and be able to make something with this video. Well that’s not me and it’s likely not you either, but I rather wanted […]

Now I don’t know a whole lot about electronics but this guy seems to be talking in terms that someone who had a basic knowledge of electronics and circuits could actually understand and be able to make something with this video.

Well that’s not me and it’s likely not you either, but I rather wanted to show this video as an example of how much fun you can have by just pursuing a topic and learning about it. I’ve always looked at my neat little toys as no more than they were but if I was just a little bit of a tinkerer I could make what ever I wanted out of them.

Valuable “Life Hacks”

This video could make your life a whole lot easier, or at least very specific aspects of your life. I can safely say I knew about none of these except maybe one and they are all incredibly mind-blowing and satisfying to me. There’s a link within the video to a previous installment which I’m sure […]

Bee Removal

Here’s a pretty interesting video someone created of the process of removing a large bee-hive from inside a wall of their house. You get a pretty good idea of the process and some interesting facts about bees along the way. Apparently the whole thing only took about five hours, which is quicker than I would […]

The Credit Crisis Visualized

I’m not an economist by any means so when someone starts talking about really any aspect of our complex economy, I’m pretty much lost. I think I need about 100 videos like this before I would truly understand it but this one helps a lot. Apparently there are a lot of layers to what’s going […]

I’m not an economist by any means so when someone starts talking about really any aspect of our complex economy, I’m pretty much lost. I think I need about 100 videos like this before I would truly understand it but this one helps a lot. Apparently there are a lot of layers to what’s going on here and if something different starts happening on any one layer, it’s going to send the whole thing to a screeching halt. Pretty scary.
