I’ve watched a few random clips of this over the last couple of weeks, but I finally tracked down the full show on TruTV and I’ve got to say that I kind of love it. Adam Conover delivers a seemingly perfect blend of comedy and cynicism to correct common misconceptions that we encounter every day. Things like thinking our credit cards are secure because we sign the back of the card or that donating things for charity drives is actually productive.

The first season is actually almost over, which on the plus side means that there are TONS of clips currently available on YouTube if you’re too cheap to actually pay for a cable subscription the normal way. I’ve still got a few episodes myself to go, but here are a few more of the ones I’ve liked the best so far…

I stumbled across this one today and I think I kind of like it … I’ve always been a fan of narrated white board illustrations! 🙂

Good stuff, although the first one doesn’t really surprise me – I haven’t had what anyone would consider a “normal” sleep schedule in the better part of a decade…

Second video now from MentalFloss – this channel is definitely shaping up into one that you want to be subscribing to … makes me real curious to see what John talks about in the weeks to come!

Also, was Mr. Rogers not pretty much the nicest guy who ever lived?! If you need more proof, check out the videos below – the speech in front of Congress was mentioned in the video and the acceptance of his Lifetime Achievement Award, well, I was just about ready to tear up watching the people in the audience just about ready to tear up! Just so friendly and kind – it does make me chuckle just a bit to think that he got into broadcasting because “he hated that all TV showed was people throwing pies at each other,” so I guess that means Mr. Rogers wasn’t a fan of The Three Stooges?!  😕

I suppose we can give everybody’s favorite neighbor a pass, though… 😉

Internet Learnin’!

Along the lines of Vsauce and SciShow, here’s a new video series by John Green of the VlogBrothers that looks like it’s going to be worth keeping an eye on!

P.S. Lots of things you’ve heard are wrong – just watch the video…  😉
