FYI being self employed can be seriously hazardous tbh
Jordan Peterson and Bret Weinstein are incredibly intellectual people. Listening to them 2 speak is mind blowing at times.
Only happened across this guy recently. Interesting speaker.
Hits the nail on the head with regards to the psychology of Left Vs Right when it comes to immigration, identity, and nationalism.
Very fascinating episode, gives you a different perception of the sexes.
Just over an hour of very interesting discussion.
Where Did The Towers Go: Dr Judy Wood.
A 9/11 truth video.
A couple of nicely done videos on astronomical scale. It's something we're easily misinformed about because extreme compression of scale is necessary to create an image. We've all seen diagrams of the solar system with the planets next to each other on a single screen or page of a book, for example. A book or webpage showing correct scale would be impractically large. But video can do the job.
Solar system plus nearest stars:
The scale is given on the second one - approximately 1/200,000,000,000. At that scale the sun is a small pea and Earth is too small to visible to the naked eye, but it's about the largest scale that's at all practical to use for a model including the nearest stars. Even at 1/200,000,000,000 scale, you need a car and plenty of time.

Donald Trump Is Awestruck By The Size Of Large Men
This guy is great, I posted a couple of his vids in the youtube thread, some of them are him having a bit of a laugh, banter with locals etc.. others are a bit more serious, super interesting though - he speaks fluent Russian and Hindi and goes to the sort of places most tourists don't go to - here are a few of the less jokey ones that perhaps fit in more with this thread:
Visiting Moldova - interestingly this actually went viral in the country afterwards and caused the government to fix the broken steps he criticises in the video!
Visiting a smuggling town in India close to the border with Burma - definitely a different vibe, also different people to most of the rest of India:
Visiting a very deprived area of Belarus:
And a rather serious & sad one - visiting the site of the Beslan Massacre:
The one that got me hooked on Bald was the Lost in Chechnya and the next one Almost Kahbib Time in Dagestan.
Sort of restores you're faith in humanity. Also rather bonkers, one man, one camera, well out in the badlands here just freewheeling.
