All these platforms gave people a way to tell a story, teach something or just show something interesting. But as these platforms became bigger, niches were developed within them. This is especially true with Youtube. You can now find different sections of the site dedicated to cooking, DIY, music, gaming, and so many others. However the amount of time that each genre has on average in video content varies greatly. But also the amount of time a person replays or revisits that content also varies from genre to genre.

Pay-to-Win Cringe: Not Just in Games

Pay-to-win has become synonymous with the gaming industry. In order for companies to profit from people playing mobile games or video games they have driven the need to include specific features of the game which can either only be bought like custom skins, weapons, etc or can be achieved only by investing an incredible amount of time into the game.

Does Equality Also Deny Your Individuality?

It’s nothing new that “feminists” whether they are men or women campaign for equal rights. They campaign to say that men can be equal to women and then women can be equal to men. But is that all that means?

From Tree to Table

Most cups are made from ceramics. A huge industry where clay is spun on a pottery wheel and is formed into a cup or almost any shape using a delicate yet firm hand and many years of experience. A fairly old technique dating back to the 3000 BC when the pottery wheel first came onto the scene. It is the standard today for tableware because it is reusable and long lasting. A quick wash and the dishes can be used again and again. Table can also be made from glass, which along with clay can hold the heat or cold of the food/beverage for a fairly long time. However due to it’s lifespan and waste created from old tableware or single-use plates and cups in the food industry, people are looking for ways to reduce the environmental footprint created from tableware. However, you would think something was used before glass and clay formed cups and plates… right?

The Origin of Burials

Burials are part of a long and ancient custom humans take part in. When someone tastes death, the people who are left living will end up burying the person in a casket or coffin (difference is explained in this youtube video) or even just wrapping in white cloth. But how did the idea of placing a person in the ground come about? The answer is all around you.

The Reason for Music Nostalgia

Most people want to say that music was the best in their generation. The 60s! The 70s! Hey people even miss the early 2000s. Of course people will miss the music that they first listened to or related to, it’s special because the first time you have nothing to compare to and can only use your taste to decide what you think sounds good or bad.

The Original Self-Driving Vehicle

AI has grown to the point now where people won’t need to drive themselves anywhere. The technology has been slowly implemented in cars that have auto-pilot to allow the steering and acceleration be controlled by the car’s system rather than the person behind the wheel. Human innovation has lead people to want automation on small things that end up saving time and what better time saver than not having to drive yourself somewhere?

Babies NOT Using Diapers

Babies need diapers.

People say that all the time and they spend so much money on diapers for their kids. There are diapers for babies and toddlers with different cartoons and styles. It makes you wonder how babies could survive without diapers…or is that the right question? Is it babies that need diapers or is it parents?
