But let's not think about such things.
The 21st century has a bright future ahead of it. Soon it'll be off to college, and before you know it, it'll be married and having little millennia of its own.
But before any of that happens, the 21st century is going to get some Good Stuff videos – the first of which will debut tomorrow.
One of our generous patrons suggested we make a video about Bitcoin (because it's so hot right now). So I took that advice and made a video ostensibly about Bitcoin but really about tulips (because I am bad at taking advice). Why tulips? Well, everybody likes pretty flowers, and 400 years ago, the Dutch really liked tulips. In fact, they liked tulips so much they were willing to pay exorbitant prices for them – causing the very first economic bubble.
Or not. There's some debate about that.
After that, I'm pretty sure I'm going to make a video about how we saved the ozone layer. If you read the last newsletter, you'll know that I sometimes (always) change my mind about what videos I'm going to make. But I've been wanting to make a video about the ozone layer for a long time now and I think I'm finally ready to do it.
Sam's gonna see why we experiment on rats – and not, say, squirrels or labradoodles. Then he's going to look into the glorious magic of diet soda and how it might (or might not) being fooling our bodies (with magic presumably).
Strap in, folks! 2018 is just beginning and you have a lot of videos to look forward to.
If you have any ideas you'd like us to explore, feel free to let us know. We might just take your advice for once.
Thanks for your support,
Matt, The Good Stuff team
P.S. The 21st century could apply for a credit card.
