Smart and or fun youtube content

since this isn't a tv show, i'm wondering if we can get this kind of thread going, if it's already somewhere, delete this thread, anyway, i've got a massive respect-boner for hank green and his team.

Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

Religion is regarded by the common man as true, by the wise man as false, and by the powerful man as useful
Yeah, if the pagans are so smart, why did Jesus invade Pagan-land on the back of a dragon and kill them all!

When I first read the title I was quite tired and thought this was about smart youtube comments and I thought there wouldn't be much content available for the thread.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

depending on which videos you read the comments you might be in for a surprise. for instance, scishow's and skallagrim's commenters regularly have above average discussions, except for the occasionnal trolls, but that's to be expected, seeing as one regularly defies bigoted points of view and the other knocks katana-weeaboos. same deal with scholagladiatoria, where history buffs meet mall ninjas.

What non-euclidian world have you come from? I refuse to believe such inane claims as "polite youtube" could exist anywhere in this plane of existence.

if only i had the answer to that, i'd buy you a friggin' planar teleportation ticket. but it gives me hope for humanity when youtube commenters are civil to one another.

If you're a gamer and a gun nut, the videos of Ahoy can be quite good.

You've all probably seen this already, but it's a neat series:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyRJZbNmC7U" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyRJZbNmC7U</a>

It presents a lot of good information and a decent amount of maths all neatly filtered through the lens of geocentrism being BOLLOCKS.

A thoroughly enjoyable watch.

This is a documentary series about the first world war and every episode concentrates on a single week in the war:

This channel concentrates on rare guns:
