I just thought I'd share this website. It's only been mentioned in one post on all of BF before. I don't think it got enough recognition at the time. (Dec 07')
It's a site that hosts a collection of lectures by very intelligent people about all sorts of topics. Here are some of the topic categories:
* Global issues
They're more special presentation lectures than your typical college lecture. They're very interesting and well done. There are some big name intellectuals and some more eclectic unknowns. Their speeches are all worth listening to.
Spend some time and browse a little. Make yourself think instead of reading another 'which bike should I get' thread.
