The Intellectually-Stimulating YouTube Find Thread

A forum for the respectful exchange of views on thought-provoking topics, whether sexuality-related or otherwise; please read the guidelines prior to posting.

Forum rules

Welcome to the Intellectual Discussion subforum.

This forum is the place for intellectual discussions, such as philosophical or scientific debates. There are some guidelines that apply specifically to posts in this forum, of which you will be expected to have made yourself aware before participating. They are as follows:

  • Intellectually stimulating topics only. If you can't have a deep discussion about something, it does not belong here.
  • If you're going to post, have something to say. When you make a new thread, write the initial post in a way that provides an introduction to the topic and invites further discussion. You could tell us how you feel and why, but always aim for constructive responses that further a discussion about the ideas involved, rather than a simple list of people's views. (Instead of asking "Are you a vegetarian?", discuss some of the arguments involved.) This guideline likewise applies for responses to topics.
  • Write using good English. That means full sentences with proper capitalisation, punctuation, spelling and grammar. No one is perfect, though; this is not an invitation to criticise others for minor mistakes.
  • Be nice. This is a forum for rational discourse, not flame wars. No one is always right. Be respectful of other people's views and accept that we are all entitled to our own.

These guidelines will be enforced by the moderators based on their best judgement, and anyone who does not take them seriously will lose the privilege of posting here. Spammers will be banned from the entire forum.

On the topic of CGP Grey, his podcasts with Brady Haran are definitely worth listening to. This one, mainly focussed on copyright law, is probably my favorite so far.

I would look through all 22 pages to see whether this has already been posted, but alas the forum is acting slowly for me today :C

If it has been done already, I apologise! If not, I hope you enjoy ^_^



If you want something a bit more palatable, this is my favourite CGP Grey video :)

I thought this video was really well thought out and rather logically sound. The rest of the channel is pretty good too.

I was reading this article saying that the 19th century and today are very similar. Gay people had to hide in the past about their sexuality but now many choose not to show faces on social media apps to avoid being recognized. Thoughts?
the article is [spam link]

As a general rule I find most short films from Singapore, Malaysia and The Philippines to be very intellectually stimulating in that they challenge the concepts and views we hold as a society.
I finally found something to put here!

Like this one, for example:

Just for a bit of context. In some Asian countries, those who bathe, make-up and dress corpses are looked down upon and usually shunned, because they are seen to be unlucky, therefore very few people want to be associated with them.
