Special Websites/Posts/Videos/Etc. that I’ve found

As I stumble across things that I find interesting while on the internet, I’ll add them here. These are things that I find cool enough that I check (or at least want to check) them often. I’ve categorized them for you convenience

  1. Websites:
    1. http://what-if.xkcd.com/ – What If is simply awesome. This blog, to quote his book, contains “Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions”. From how much power Yoda could output, to a billion story building, to what the worst thing could happen in a pressure cooker (man, now I want to re-read all those…)
    2. https://forekast.com/ – A pretty cool website that I’m partial to, even though it doesn’t have very many people using it. It’s a site in which users add dates of when interesting event will happen, such as movies or meteor showers. The events can then be upvoted, and you can add an alarm so that the website tells you when it’s about to happen
  2. Youtube Channels:
    1. https://www.youtube.com/user/Vsauce?feature=watch – Vsauce is a educational channel, filled with fascinating videos explaining a variety of topics, from how much the earth is worth to what the shortest poem is.
    2. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8aG3LDTDwNR1UQhSn9uVrw – If you enjoy Minecraft, then you’ll probably enjoy this channel. Sethbling was one of the original Redstone Wizards, and now is a Command Block pro.
  3. Stores/things to buy:
    1. https://www.kickstarter.com/ – One of the first crowd funding sites, it has a large number of projects which only will get the money they need for their project from funders like you.
  4. Articles that are must reads:
    1. http://jonnegroni.com/2013/07/11/the-pixar-theory/ – The Pixar Theory is an idea that all the Pixar movies (Cars, Monster’s Inc, Finding Nemo, etc.) are all in the same universe. Truly an awesome read, I haven’t been able to watch the movies the same since. Also, he’s written a number of follow up articles which you can find on his website
