I stumbled upon some seriously awesome stop-motion animations today from a Youtuber called Counter 656 and OMFG are his videos amazing. You don’t see much stop-motion nowadays but there are still people out there that keep it alive. I highly recommend checking out this channel and subscribing. Hit this link to visit his channel now.
ABC news reported that the Government Accountability Office released a study of a study that the Pentagon commissioned to look into the effectiveness of studies. You can’t make this stuff up. In the video Lee Doren, from the HowTheWorldWorks Youtube channel, gives his opinion on the craziness.
