Yeah, I watch a lot of Youtube, TV sucks in the Netherlands. This is by no means everything, I have a lot more in my subscription list, these are some of the channels I watch a lot. If interested I'll post more.
Thanks, now I have more stuff to subscribe.

I also like retro-stuff such as LGR, Adrian's Digital Basement, The 8-Bit Guy and Techmoan.

I still just have to begrudgingly move on from because my brain is finite
I wonder if that is a case. While age plays a part, I often see someone and feel like my mind is going through a rolodex of names to recall who they are. So I do wonder if the brain can fill up and not be able to carry any more information.

I suppose we still don't quite know how it works. Some researchers think that the way the brain works it can store more and more information but I find that hard to believe.

Either way, I possibly don't need to worry, I easily forget at a faster rate than I learn so space is fairly endless for me in a similar way that a sieve is endless. ;)
 
Anything about space or the ocean. Not shark week though, I hate shark week. Not interested in seeing ocean creatures or land creatures tear other ones apart. Tech documentaries are interesting too, but the only 3 I have actually liked were "Lo and Behold" by Werner Herzog, "Revolution OS" about Linux, and one on Compaq whose name escapes me at the moment. I think the "Halt and Catch Fire" series was based on it but not sure.

I don't know - I am pushing 60 and still have a ton of info up there, much of which is useless 🙂 but I still retain info well and am still learning.
I do the same with names though - if I don't use the name relatively frequently, I almost instantly dump it right after hearing it. If I "assign" importance to something, then I will almost always remember it. The exception is for things the wife tells me that I know she won't remember. I also almost instantly dump those, but that has bitten me as well...
 
Old British serries which I still watching: The fool and horses, Black Adder, Alo Alo - evergreens and old mysteries Frost, Inspector Morse, David Suchet and Poirot, Wallander...Sherlock Holmes...

Wow, so much good documentary stuff in this topic.

I have a particular fondness for:

Kurzgesagt

– for the channel's swift and outstanding approach to explaining a complex set of issues in March 2020. From a linked discussion: "commendable effort that they worked so hard, especially when misinformation is running rampant.".



I'm not sure what to add, right now, to the list of documentaries because I don't bookmark the best. The best are nearly always seen by me at No. 10, in the company of an exceptionally well-educated friend who knows how to choose the best for us. His playlist is like, accidentally, the best.

(Hint: it's easy to find misinformation about what's pictured; don't believe everything that you read, and never judge a book by its cover.)
 
The title means "Fork lift driver Klaus." And in case you didn't get it: although the topic is serious and the advices are for real, it's chosen style is a parody of normal industrial safety instruction videos. And the bad FX are on purpose.

This is now 21 years old, and really used in fork lift driver courses in Germany. It has there a cult following. While it looks quite cheap, actually filming it did cost back then around 200K DM.
