Stuck in an office, wishing you were on vacation? I know I am! Fortunately the people at BBC Earth have provided this wonderful distraction, a ten hour video of various underwater scenes. No weird music, just underwater greatness. 🙂
Yes. Yes it is.
British Airways is offering its passengers an unusual in-flight entertainment option: SlowTV. Specifically, a seven hour long video of a train ride from Bergen to Oslo (Norway). Boring, yet relaxing and actually a pretty good idea for a long plane flight! I hadn’t heard of Slow TV before, but if you search YouTube you’ll find quite a bit of this. My favorite has to be an hour long video of a tropical beach…I’ll embed it below for your viewing enjoyment while I let it play on my second monitor. 🙂
Speaking of going slow, the Kona Brewing Company made a nice commercial about ‘single tasking’, doing just one thing for a change. I like it!
Standing desks may be the latest trend (with some solid health benefits!), but now there’s a new trend emerging – fetal position desks! Check out the very informative 😉 video below. Just some Friday humor for you from The Onion…
If you want to know why I feel the way I do about climate change, watch this video from a TEDx conference two years ago:
John Oliver takes on climate change, with a bit of help from Bill Nye.
“I think I know why people think this issue is open to debate. Because on TV, it is.”
Funny video – but not for young kids (a bit of blood…there’s that part about ‘if you don’t, I’ll break your knees’…). There are few things that bother me more than videos shot in portrait mode…
Check out this cool video about the science of running a marathon…what’s going on in your body, etc. I’m currently training to run my first marathon this spring, and found this video entertaining but also educational.
