How to History: Video Tutorials in the Historic Arts



Throughout history, skills and techniques of the craftsman and guild were guarded trade secrets. Everyday life skills were passed on by word of mouth, seldom committed to the written page. In time, that knowledge can be lost. The same is equally true today. Even with all the modern ways we have of preserving and storing information, things get lost and forgotten. There’s no telling how many skills have been erased from memory over the past thousand years or so. How to History seeks to rediscover and preserve those skills and to spread them far and wide to any who wish to understand them.

How To History currently has 85 videos on various "old school" arts and sciences.  Take a step back in time while learning a new craft.

Both history buffs and preppers would love this site.

World of Goo: Physics Game Download {demo}



World of Goo is a physics based puzzle / construction game. The millions of Goo Balls who live in the beautiful World of Goo don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.

There is a free demo download available. The full game can be purchased for $20.00.

I have finished a few levels in the demo. It is so fun. I'm not sure how many more levels are in the demo but it's certainly worth checking out.
