There's a lot of cool stuff (and a lot of junk) on YouTube. One of my favorite channels is Geek & Sundry, which I definitely think you should check out. One of the wonderful shows they do is called Written by a Kid, and it's exactly what it sounds like; a little kid tells a story and a fabulous crew of actors, animators, etc bring it to life. Here's one of my favorites:
I also very much love ThinkGeek and would happily waste thousands of dollars there if I could. Here's a few choice bits:

I'm also very excited about 3D printers right now. In fact, I'm in the middle of building one with and for my students. This is pretty much the one we're building:

3D printers are really cool. Here's a great article that talks about both the silliness and wonderful potential wrapped up in these printers. I'm having so much fun building it! And I can't wait to print! The hard part is going to be deciding where to start.
And let's wrap up with a funny. This isn't really a video, it's actually part of the radio program Car Talk. But it's completely hilarious. Trust me, just give it a listen. Maybe somewhere that people won't mind you laughing so loud you cry.
Ok, that will do for today. What wonderful stuff are you enjoying?
