This week I found a modern version of these educational shorts. And they’re not made for kids, but for adults and about adult topics that many people seem to not know about, weren’t taught in school or have forgotten.
Important things like how does your Constitutional Government work? Who controls the budget purse strings and how do elections really work? What’s the Electoral College for and why do we even still need it? Which we don’t, but why do we have it in the first place?
The CGP Grey Channel on Youtube is a great place to have all those questions answered. And not through some boring monotone talk over your head lecture. Nope his videos turn some confusing topics into wonderfully simple videos that explain and educate at the same time. Continue reading →
Once upon a time, a long long time ago, a young woman was lost and walked along a barren path in the middle of a misty forest. She wasn’t lost from her home or village, but from her heart and mind.

Once a upon a time, the Faeries of Bellaruesk planned a summer faery art festival in the deep hollow of the woods. To protect their celebration from Mother Nature, they asked the forest spiders to build a canopy over their meadow. The spiders worked through the night and weaved a beautiful fine web over the entire village. As the sun rose between the trees, the warm rays sparkled and danced upon the Morning Dew. The tiny droplets transformed the early light of dawn into brilliant colorful beams beneath the woven web, turning the Faery land into lovely rainbows sent from above.
