Prophets of Doom on the History Channel

I hope other people saw the program "Prophets of Doom" on the History Channel.  They were dead on on most things taking place.  It really looked like they had taken it from the Crash Course.  See if you can catch it when it is on again.  There seems to be more awareness building.

Some tips for improving the Crash Course

Note that the version I have of the Crash Course is a bit old (PAL torrent from ~2008/9), so some of the following things may have been improved already.

- The beginning is a bit too long, people with short attention spans (i.e. most of us, thanks to TV) are turned off within the first few minutes. Try to explain what the CC is about a bit better and why it is so important to watch (I realize this may be hard without fearmongering) in the first 3-5 minutes.

Crash Course?

Hey staff,

I haven't watched the Crash Course in about 3-4 months.  Have there been any changes to the content recently?  I didn't want to go through the whole course to find out, as it's quite long.  I try to check it out every 6 months as a refresher so......

Thanks in advance!

Advice for a Career Quitter...

After three years of research on the economy and peak oil, I am certain that I will leave a perfectly fine job of 25 yrs at the end of this year.  I'm in an energy related field.  I enjoy the actual work but I am tired of being on the road 4 months/yr, stressed out bosses, overzealous bureuacracy and feeding the flippin' banks.  The main reason for leaving is that 2/3rds my life's savings are locked up in a private stock that comes with the job.  It makes excellent, steady returns.  I could convert that stock into cash money within a month.  But, if hyperinflat
