I’ve followed Siobhan on YouTube for a while because she’s known for very upbeat and informative videos about her life as a doctor. I watched this video late last night and even though it’s a week old at this point, I thought it did a great job of how we got to where we are today as well as dispelling many of the rumors that have circulated about the virus.

Inspiration From Liberia

So this is a really cool story…

Guy gets contacted online by someone in Liberia who he assumes is just another scammer, but decides to give him a chance and offers him a job taking photos of his homeland. He ends up sending the guy a cheap camera and spends a couple of months coaching him on photography, then self publishes a small book of the photos so that he can pay him as promised. And they sold enough that the budding photographer was not only able to turn his life around, pay off his debts, and put a new roof on his home, but they also bought school supplies and book bags for kids in five local schools.

And if that’s not enough, check out this special video where these two new business partners plan to give the children of Liberia a Christmas to remember … which ends up being much different than the Christmas we’ve come to expect here in America…

I picked up a couple of copies of their books to give away as Christmas presents. It’s just a really fun, engaging, and also heartwarming story to watch from the very beginning if you’ve got some time to kill watching YouTube videos tonight. 😉

All Aboard!

I thought this was pretty cool! I remember my great grandpa having a neighbor who had a small train like this setup in his backyard that we got to walk over and check out one afternoon, but it was nowhere near this elaborate! Loved the bridge, and the cave … the track just seems to go on and on! (apparently the property is nearly 20 acres)

And to think that for a mere $3.5 million, this miniature railway could all be yours… 😉

retirement on tortoise island

Last link for the night!!!  

86 year-old guy lives on his own private island that he bought in the Indian Ocean 50 years ago for £8,000 – not too shabby of a way to retire, if you ask me!

Just a man and his giant tortoises, in a veritable paradise…

We need more puppets on the Internet…

I stumbled onto this show earlier today and thought it was kinda unique and cute. Curious to see where they end up taking it…

I got a real kick out of this video – it kind of reminded me of the big road trip that Sara and I took a couple of years ago, minus the worldwide travel aspect, of course! Seriously, how cool would it be to just take like ten grand, a week, and a map, and just wander around seeing all of the wonders of the world?!

Just to name a few off the top of my head, my list would probably include Egypt, London, Paris, Germany, China, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand. Where would you go?

Web video is here to stay!

I find myself continuing to regularly be amazed by the quality of new web shows that I stumble onto on a regular basis. Considering that the “production crew” for these shows is typically a fraction of any regular television broadcast, if not simply the host and one guy behind the camera, if I worked on one of those regular, old school TV shows, I myself would be getting a little nervous!

Correction: *I* myself would probably say to hell with the big, overhead production and get a few of my friends together to do a show all by ourselves, but that’s just me… 😉

Nevertheless, I thought I’d take this otherwise drab Thursday evening to share a few of the newer online shows that I’ve been enjoying lately.

The Point – A political round table hosted by Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks – kind of like Real Time with Bill Maher, but slightly less cynical.

SciShowA really fun and informative show about … SCIENCE!!! This guy reminds me a lot of Bill Nye, and the show is beautifully produced – I’m honestly not sure why it’s not on the Discovery channel already.

My Drunk Kitchen So Hannah drinks, but at least she’s a funny drunk, and also sometimes food even happens along the way…

CheckPointWeekly commentary and gentle prodding on video game news – I like it because despite barely having time to play, I still get about 85% of their jokes!

And one more, just because I’m supposed to be packing and this video is pretty awesome…

I can only hope that I’m that fun of a Dad when I have kids! 😀

This is pretty incredible!

Be sure to watch it full screen in 1080p – the working airport looks really cool…
