I didn't make the videos, but they are good -- aren't they?

For what it's worth, there are some other folks out there doing a good job -- some with videos, some with audio programs (podcasts ...), and some discussion areas;

The videos are great! (so is the forum  ;) )
Yeah, check out the links that Hermes has mentioned. As far as youtube videos, I personally recommend thunderf00t, CDK007 and Potholer54. If you haven't checked them out, you should. You'll find them fascinating. Two of whom are scientists (thunderf00t and CDK) and Potholer54 is a journalist who has written for science magazines.

I edit a lot of my posts. The reason being it to add content or to correct grammar/wording. All edits to remove wording get a strike through through the wording.

I didn't make the videos either, but thank you, please come join the forum, there are some wonderful people here and I have learned so much from them.
