Shall we just leave out “Free”, so far everything is free…
I came up with a new idea for what to do.
Quarantined in the Years of the Internet.
It’s very entertaining all over the whole sight too.
I’ve recently been trying to learn how to draw people, so I’ve added a video series that excellently explains how to do it.
It’s very tricky, but a lot of fun, and as with everything: if you put effort in it (like a month of daily practice), you’ll see yourself improve rapidly.
I could add links to sites that feature drawing models, but because of (nongraphical) nudity, I’m not sure if it fits within the OGS guidelines.
I have found a couple of things that these days have 90% off promotions and stuff, so not everything is free (haven’t posted them since I’m not sure I recommend yet). For example a streaming service, or online lessons. It’d be great if people find and share them.

Another thread asked a more general question:
But my reply focused solely on linking to various amusing forum threads, so I guess that qualifies as Internet related things:
About Frantastique and the other apps from Gymglish.
I have tried Frantastique, it has flaws and I don’t think I’d recommend it at full price, but the idea is pretty good, the lessons are very different and interesting compared to the usual same-old, and 1 month of lessons for free could keep good company to anyone looking to freshen up their skills in those languages.

The ESA online event #SpaceConnectsUs is about how to cope with isolation and features astronauts and a few celebrity guests.
I thought these two videos were really fascinating. I’ll add the channel (which covers lots of things besides just ants) to the first post.
On cardgames.io, I was recently showed a new game by a friend. It is called “Quarantine”. How fitting of our times right now.
Great videos, I watched both at once. (Also, they work great as metaphors).
I don’t remember which book it was, but if I’m not mistaken J. Verne novel has a character being eaten by African ants. I was too young when I read it, I found it terrifying.
Already seen them ^^
Good taste, my man – I think you’ll like AntsCanada.
Another great ant documentary
Oh wow huge difference when it’s not a cute animation…
I think the time has come to introduce everyone to my girl crush:
100% good for the soul, no side effects.
EDIT: Two of my favorite videos of hers:
Which has my favorite comment of all time:
“THIS is why it takes women so long to get ready.”
This confuses me: how are there Chinese influencers, living properly in China, with millions of followers, while the entire website is banned by their government?
I can understand where the followers come from, and how they are technically able circumvent an internet blockade. I’m mostly wondering why the government allows it…
I think she has another channel or Weibo or something?
There’s lots of Chinese influencers that I know with YT channels, I brushed it off as “VPN+all-governments-like-money”.
The same thing as in N. Korea, or other similar regimes, where “western goods” circulate regularly and properly, just not officially.
Should we designate this as the right thread for posting wholesome / educational youtube channels?
