One of these is not like the others...

but they are all really quite interesting.

Secrets of the Mayan Calendar Unveiled (1 of 3) - Google Video
this lecture by (now deceased) ian xel lungold is based on the work of carl johan calleman. i still have a hard time understanding how the Mayan civilization could conceptualize 16 billion years and ian's shirt is totally wacky but his drawing skills more than make up for his tight white pants. his presentation is fantastic and can really get you thinking.

what the bleep do we know - Google Video
note: this video, while being highly informative with splendid visuals and a good ole fashioned wedding dance sequence, confuses a couple of things. i still think that it's worth a watching though.

YouTube - The Elegant Universe Part 1: Einstein's Dream (1/5)
who doesn't want to watch movies about string theory, parallel universes, and (at least) 11 dimensions? go here for more information.

and in case you want to read some real stuff (none of this calendar bull or scientific mumbo jumbo) check out my main man from the year 2036 John Titor. let's hope that cool dude Dr. Michio Kaku can save us before that Z machine makes a black hole or whatever the hell Titor said happens.
