I've been watching/listening to a lot of Isaac Arthur lately. For instance,


Uh, why did that not work?

Edit: replaced the video with one much more representative. That was by far the most technical video I'd seen him show.

I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I enjoyed that video. I found it to be informative and objective. Even though he claims it's his favorite game, he didn't go out of his way to glorify Star Control 2 as though it's completely perfect and has zero faults. Great overview that really hit the high points of the game. Thanks for sharing it Alvarin!

I thought it might inspire some of the regulars here to give this game a try. Someone might enjoy it.

It is Passover, so the song "Exodus" might be appropriate. The animation depicts a very simplified version of power dynamics at this tiny spot.

Device orchestra has many covers, most are pure gold, some are OK.
Today he posted "Believer" by Imagine Dragons, but this is meme'y enough as channel introduction.

Hey cool, you rickrolled me with a bid I did not know yet.
(I still like Newfangled Four's version best, also because the Barbershop Society rickrolled not just me with that video, but watch the original "Bananaphone" first)

Wow, now I'm never gonna be able to hear that song without hearing the iron steaming to the beat! I gotta fever, and the only cure... is more iron steamer! :lol:
