Re: you can generally get a better education from Youtube.

If you are willing to spend three times the time necessary and can listen to the stupid music, incessant "um, ah, um" instead of lucid recitation, and ad-hoc backtracking to cover forgotten precursor information or alternative approaches without hitting first CTRL-C and then the bottle.

And that's before we get into the camera technique that has hands, heads and bodies blocking whatever it is the blithering drooler on screen is exhorting us to watch closely.

I never saw an "educational" YouTube video that couldn't be improved by deleting it. GIMP and Blender bring out the cream of the crop of dithering blither, but don't take my word for it. Grab some strong drink and go on a voyage of discovery.

The best YouTube footage comes from Russian dashcams. At least there the inevitable wreckage flying all over the place belongs to someone else.
