Consider this as a revenge for videos where "scholars" ruminate about important topics like "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin" hour after hour... ;)

To watch the series through will take hours indeed, but it is interesting stuff, though nothing particularly new in the first two lessons.

The Lesson 01 - part 1:



Here is the link to to the whole list. Embedding a inside youtube-tag does not work. :(

Enjoy. ;)

Thank you.

Will give it a look.

But what am I to look for? Anything startling different ?

Watched this short summery of his views, interesting ... but ... the dollar is the coconut.

Will look at his whole series. Doubt I'll agree with most his views.

Natural law vs fiction ... hmmm.

Listening now Lesson 03 - part 1. With wireless headphones I can cook food and listen in the same time. :mrgreen:

There are things that I don't completely agree, But this is mostly because Yuval presents several views on the same topic. Like was there nuclear families 50000 years ago or promiscuous communes?

I assume that we can discuss on many topics. ;)

Why do you use headphones?

I just blast away with my massive speakers set so loud that I can hear it loud all the way to sauna which is at the opposite end of my proletariat style mini mansion.

Wireless headphones, bleh.

I live in Helsinki in an apartment house with neighbors on the other side of the wall. It is not practical and polite to have the speakers in my living room to be so loud that I can hear them in the kitchen. OK, I could have another set of speakers in the kitchen though. But it is much more practical to wear wireless headphones, I can go to the bathroom to shit and listening what I am listening.

And I listen legendary radio dramas also, like:

and

Enjoy. ;)
