Learn with me, video a day

Discussion in 'Science and Nature' started by bahookahjoe18, Nov 17, 2011.

  1. Since I'm not in high school or college anymore, I feel the need to educate myself, but now it can be about what ever I want :D

    So, I'm going to watch one Khan Academy video a day (mostly) to increase my knowledge. :smoking:

    I'll post the video I'm watching here so we can discuss it together.
  2. I like this thread keep it up :D
  3. Good for you. You are doing something amazing that our civilization lacks so greatly. You are seeking knowledge when nobody is asking you to do so. I applaud you my friend. I applaud you.
  4. It makes you think what really was the first "life" on Earth. A really interesting topic in my opinion. Really gets the mind working.
  5. I love khan academy, I was teaching myself math just because I never really learned it in school and I can say I've learned more from his website than I have in one of my HS math classes. That's actually kinda sad

    Animals lived on land before plants. That's interesting. Had any one else assumed that plants were first?

    However, plants were the first to live their entire lifespan on land, whereas the first land animals only lived outside of the sea for a part of their lives.

    Those creepy house centipedes are descended from the first animal to live on land for the duration of it's life. I wonder if you can eat those....


  7. I really either want to be a botanist or something that has to do with nature. You just keep learning new things because nature is such a vast field of study. Amazing stuff.

    That myriapod reminds me of something I've seen being eaten on fear factor haha. You probably could eat them though.. Protein! :D
  8. Well shoot Blades, I missed a day already.

    I still watched a video myself, I just didn't get around to posting it, and as it turns out, I can't post it.

    That's the end of the video I watched. Pretty cool show, but I can't find it except for on Netflix.
