The most famous line from the Watchmen is ‘Who watches the watchers?’ In this video, I talk about that idea and a few others. Are Superheros super, or are they just like us? Was the Watchmen the start of a movement or a sign of the times? If anything, it seems like the world has started to wonder, can we trust those people who have power?
Learning a new language is one of the most amazing things you can do, this is because it is one of the most serious challenges you can put yourself through. I’ve been working on Japanese on and off for a few years, it is a lot of work, but being able to speak in another language feels amazing!
For most of my life, I’ve kept a journal. I can say, by far it is one of the best ways to keep me sane in times of turmoil. A journal is a great way to get your thoughts out, that helps you deal with the things that are bothering you and gets them out of your head.
The Gods Themselves is one of Isaac Asimov’s greatest books, he won the Hugo and Nebula awards for this book. What’s important about this book is that it questions some of the things we take for granted. For example, when we create new technology, can we turn back, even when it is necessary?
Here is a list of 9 different ways to read more books. I thought to make this video because one of my coworkers was telling me he couldn’t finish reading any of the books he had on the go. Reading books will make your life better, so read more!
Ishmael by Daniel Quinn is one of those books that will make you look at the world in a different light. It will change the way you think about the way you live life and inspire you to live another way. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it, no only is it inspirational, but it is also highly entertaining.
Everyone knows the saying, “Knowledge is power.” The more you know, the more you can do, and the better you will be at solving problems. Knowledge also helps us come up with better solutions when we need them. The more you know, the safer you are — which is to say, you know the risks and can avoid them.
Knowledge also has many benefits, so why wouldn’t you want to learn every day? When you are learning and getting better, you know you are still alive.
Have you ever considered how much knowledge it takes to know enough about a topic? What about how much information it takes to have a conversation? For perspective, consider the knowledge you get from reading. If you read a Wikipedia article, you know more than most people. If you read a book, you may know more than 90% of people. These numbers are obviously made up, but a little bit of data goes a long way.
I recently read Handmaid’s Tale by Margret Atwood, it is all about dystopia, propaganda, context and control. It was a great read and these are my thoughts about the important ideas.
Growing up with a learning disability, or maybe some form of dyslexia, I had a lot of trouble with school. This video is about all the things I went through and explains why I love reading so much.
This situation was a struggle, but my parents helped me a lot along the way. Learning disabilities are a challenge for anyone who goes through them, but they are also invisible to most people. Learning disabilities aren’t as noticed as other types of disabilities and ways of standing out. But they do have a significant effect on peoples lives.
I recently read ‘The Reason You’re Alive’ by Matthew Quick, it was a great quick read, and this video is about what I found interesting about the book. One thing that stands out, is that it is really good at giving you the perspective of someone you’ve likely never taken seriously.
