If you're like me you can easily get lost watching one Ted video after another. They can be very captivating. But now there's even better. I say "now" but in fact it's been around since 2012. I'd never heard of it before but yesterday I saw a story about a video they had showing what life would have been like for an average teen in ancient Rome. And I thought, whoa, Ted does kid-friendly educational videos too? Cooooooool.

It's called Ted-Ed, and yes I've bookmarked it. This morning I picked a few videos more or less at random and watched them with the kids and they enjoyed that. Which is fine. But better than that is the fact that the two eldest kids were still, 12 hours later, discussing something they'd learned about the night-vision abilities of toads to make jokes at my expense (toads apparently have evolved in a way that rewards slowness and the girls thought I could be walking faster in the direction of our car after a long night at the dojo).

I guess we'll be watching more of those...
