Fire an Arrow? I Think NOT Sir!

We love to see the battles in movies where they use fire arrows. It seems like such a good idea on a movie screen.

But would it really work? This charming video explores the matter. It’s longer than we normally post, but we couldn’t stop watching because the narrator is just so darned engaging.

Be sure and subscribe so that we can keep bringing you interesting highlights from the various online video sources we watch.

New Connections All Over

Have you ever seen the BBC program “Connections” with James Burke? Chances are, if you have a television (still) you’ve come across it at least once.

For those of you who admired the show, or James Burke greatly and wish there were more, here’s someone who may one day fill his shoes. Tom Scott is doing great work with his YouTube series, and it has a hint of the rocket sled ride through human knowledge and nature. Take a look for yourself.

We expect to see a lot more good come from this “great explainer.”
