I saw both of these videos last August and meant to post them. Both were produced by C.G.P. Grey (Grey’s Blog) and they are OUTSTANDING!
Even if you’re not a coffee drinker, I think you’ll enjoy the Coffee video (coffee drinkers will love it!). Caffeine is one of the most studied drugs ever and there are essentially no health problems for normal people ingesting normal amounts of the stuff. In less than 4 minutes you’ll know more about coffee & caffeine than you thought possible.
The Copyright video analyzes the copyright laws in the U.S. from the 1700’s up until the modern day (and in less than 6 minutes!). Viewers will quickly realize from this short video the idiocy of such long copyright terms.
