How Crash Bandicoot Hacked The Original Playstation | War Stories | Ars Technica

I find this interesting as a former videogame programmer.  When the game came out, some programmers thought of it is as not true 3D, although actually, it is.

Test of GoPro 360 VR camera on a bike in NYC while Louis Rossmann rants & raves into the abyss.

I like listening to Louis Rossman.  He spends 6 minutes talking about why the city wants to fine him unfairly.  He is using a 360-degree camera which lets the viewer look literally in all directions as he rides his bike.  

The rest of the video is repetitious, but I do find him interesting.  His comments reaffirm my belief that New York City is a rathole.  

I seriously fear for his safety.

Irish Stew From 1900 & The Irish Potato Famine

This video provides some interesting facts about the Irish Potato famine, but also the Irish Stew recipe looks like something that I would want to try.

Nutria - Catching Delicious Swamp Rats. Mousetrap Monday

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zm9Idn9sVsE

Can you imagine eating a giant rat you caught?  

At the end, someone asks him what animal would he get rid of if he could?   Mosquitoes kill more humans than any other animal.

The #1 Factor For Achieving Success (Online)

I really like this video.  Although the speaker is talking about online success, I think that his advice applies to any type of success.

If I Ran the Zoo Dr. Seuss Read Aloud with Music (Banned book.)

I'm sure that I would have loved this as a kid.  I like the energy of the video, but the story seems a little dull.   Around 3:18 the reader changes the wording that might be controversial.  This is from two years ago.

I have a fondness for the more famous Dr. Seuss stories.

And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street - Dr Seuss Kids Book Read Aloud - Stories for Kids

Dr. Seuss's first book, and withdrawn from publication for supposed racism.  How long before the video is removed?

It is not his best book, but it is mildly amusing.  I read this a month or two ago on a different site.

Carl Benjamin - Making Sense Of 2021's Madness | Modern Wisdom Podcast #280

This is a pretty interesting discussion on an intellectual level.  If you want the short version, the meat of it starts at 42 minutes.

An Evening With Kevin Smith - Star Wars Celebration VI

Here the director/writer Kevin Smith tells a couple of really sweet stories, one from 5 to 7:30 and the other from 11 to 18 minutes.  Much strong language. 


A couple of years later he tells this wonderful story.   I can't believe how crude he is.
