Shift happens.

Something that we were shown in college today. It’s a bit lengthy, but if you actually consider some of the points… it’s quite an eye-opener to the amazing and evolving world we live in.  Stick your speakers on for full effect.

My personal favorite: “It’s estimated that a week’s work of New York Times contains more information than a person was likely to come across in a lifetime in the 18th Century”.

There’s a US version updated for 2007 with more up-to-date facts available, but this older, UK version has cooler music.

Ad hominem

I’m going to take this blog in a slightly different direction. Alongside the usual stuff, I’ll be adding snippets of things that I have learnt about the world that many seem to have overlooked.

Sometimes I will attempt to challenge your perception of things. Sometimes I will ask you to forget about your morals and deeply ingrained opinions and to look at something objectively. And sometimes I will be linking to media that some people may find outlandish.

In preparation for this, here are two introductory snippets from someone who I consider to be fairly stimulating. Whilst I don’t agree with what he says in all of his videos, and whilst the way he voices his opinions can be a little questionable, he’s someone that I will be linking to on here in my quest to get you to think.

With that in mind:

OK, so hopefully you’re thinking now. I’ll be posting similar videos on a fairly regular basis.
