Anyone familiar with the Youtube vlogsters Hank and John Green?

They have an awesome new series of educational videos on Youtube called "Crash Course" that's worth checking out.

Their mission statement:

Yeah, about the test. The test will measure whether you are an informed, engaged, and productive citizen of the world. And it will take place in schools, and bars, and hospitals, and dorm rooms, and in places of worship. You will be tested on first dates, in job interviews, while watching football, and while scrolling through your twitter feed. The test will judge your ability to think about things other than celebrity marriages, whether youll be easily persuaded by empty political rhetoric, and whether youll be able to place your life and your community in a broader context. The test will last your entire life, and it will be comprised of the millions of decisions that, when taken together, make your life yours. And everything everything will be on it. I know, right? So pay attention.

I'd highly recommend this so far, no matter what age you are. It seems like a lot of this material would be particularly useful for high school students, though.
