Default Khan Academy

I don't know if anyone else here uses this site but I really enjoy it. I try to spend at least a few hours each week taking a lesson on something. I have done a lot of the math and history. Its free and a good way to spend a few hours when you have time. I do it on the computer and have it on my tablet so I can use it anywhere I have a internet connection. The app I have on my android tablet is called "S Educate" and can be found at google play.

"The website 700 micro lectures via video tutorials stored on YouTube teaching mathematics, history, healthcare, medicine, finance, physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, economics, cosmology, organic chemistry, American civics, art history, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and computer science."

I know that said 700 videos but I read some where else that now there or over 3000.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

I've not seen a commercial for it yet but did see a BOA commercial that used Khan Academy as someone they had helped get started. It is very interesting and worth a look see. I first saw it when I got a firmware update to my Samsung tablet and they added the app.

String, thanks. I downloaded it. It looks like they'll be adding class over time. I'd like to see some geology.
