How do you Find the Greatest You Tube Videos?

The Greatest You Tube Videos
While I have done some good video posts on this blog, I have to say my favorite place to find the greatest You Tube videos, (and lots of them), is Video Mobster.

They are a site specifically designed to find amazing and interesting videos in all sorts of different genres, such as funny videos, creepy, strange, talented people, extreme, animated, and technology videos.

The great thing about this blog is that it is constantly updated with great stuff, that is aimed at being so entertaining that you will share it with friends, bookmark the page, or follow via Google Friend Connect. 

Some of my favorite videos are the extreme skateboarding and BMX tricks. I also like the weird animation stuff.

This is definitely a site that has the greatest You Tube videos in my opinion, but everyone has different tastes. I hope you will check it out, and see for yourself. 

Here's a great one from the site to show you what I mean. This one is called Funny Voice, and the original You Tube video was called: The funniest video in the world!

Double Your Reading Speed in Minutes

Today, I aim to show you how to double your reading speed in minutes, with fairly good comprehension, by using a few simple speed reading techniques.

This You Tube video isn't really a video, but an audio track of a kick drum doing a metronome beat of 50 beats per minute.

The average reading speed is around 250 words per minute, and if you think there are about ten words in each line of this article, then that means if you read one line every beat of this metronome, and can understand what I'm saying fairly well, you will have a reading speed of double the average person.

The first step is using something to help your eyes follow the words across the page in a smooth movement, whether your finger, the other end of a pen, or the mouse pointer.

Speed reading works better on a physical book, or an electronic reading device, but you can use the same techniques on your computer screen.

The main thing you are trying to do is stop the sub-vocalization in your brain, which means you speak the words as you read them in your head.

By forcing yourself to speed up, you stop your brain's ability to sub-vocalize, as most people cannot speak that fast, and so you start to gather the meanings of words faster.

My father is Bob Casey, a world-class speed reading teacher with forty years experience. He has just made a website that teaches you how to double your reading speed in an hour.

Some of his past clients were The Australian Bureau of Statistics, and The Australian Tax Office. Take a look at his site, and double your reading speed.

Baby Born With a Frog Head

This is really disturbing, but I felt I had to share it. It's not really a baby born with a frog head, but a birth defect called anencephaly.

According to Wikipedia, anencephaly is a disorder that results from a neural tube defect that happens when the cephalic or head end of the neural tube fails to close, resulting in an absence of a large part of the brain, skull and scalp.

Children born with this disorder rarely survive birth, and are missing a forebrain, the largest part of the brain, which among other things is used for conscious thought. So it's not really a baby with a frog head, but it kind of looks like it, don't you think?

How do fat People Stand up?

How Do Fat People Stand Up?

Ever wonder how fat people manage to stand up? It's not easy to get on your feet when you're carrying around the weight of an extra person.

This video shows the step by step process involved in getting up from a lying down position on the couch, for an average fat man.

This video is both an instructional lesson on how to stand up when you are a fat person, and a public service announcement to those who may not yet have trouble standing up from a sitting or lying down position. Enjoy.

Learn how to Meditate Correctly

Meditation is the art of shutting off the conscious mind, and relaxing into a state of unconsciousness. It is stopping the mad chatter of the head and focusing on just breathing or being.

The goal is inner peace, enlightenment, and relief from stress. This video shows very clearly how to meditate correctly, and should guide you towards finding your inner peace and enlightenment through traditional meditation methods.

For more tips on the best way to meditate correctly, and some words of enlightenment gained from Zen masters, take a look at my article on Factoidz, which is entitled: Enlightenment Gained From Meditation.

Before and After Photos From the Biggest Loser

These are some before and after photos of contestants from the Biggest Loser season five. It's quite amazing how much weight people can lose in a few weeks if they try hard enough, eat the right food, and get a little motivation.

I'm trying to lose weight myself at the moment, and I am really impressed at what these people were able to do. It is possible to get similar results at home, but you have to eat really healthy food, and work out every day.

If you want to keep the weight off, you have to continue to exercise and eat well on a permanent basis. Nobody wants to have trouble walking, and nobody wants to die young, so you don't need a million dollars as your incentive, it's your life.
