A Little Learning Is A Dangerous Thing

“A little learning is a dangerous thing” – Alexander Pope

Remember when I said I wouldn’t limit my blog posts to any particular area HERE.

Well, i’m here with one of those seemingly pointless posts, but don’t worry, there will be a deep lesson at the end of the post.

“Develop a passion for learning.  If you do, you will never cease to grow.” –  Anthony J. D’Angelo

I recently stumbled upon the TED-Ed YouTube channel, and since then I literally watch at least 10 videos each day.

I am someone who loves to learn, and coming across somewhere where I could learn efficiently, and still have fun while doing it was a breath of fresh air.

“Once you stop learning, you start dying.” -Albert Einstein

The most amazing part of the channel is that the videos are animated!!!. Just imagine learning Calculus and actually understanding it. Can you? Well, today is your lucky day, because that’s what TED-Ed does.

I picked a couple of videos I recently watched and decided to share them with my wonderful readers.

I really do hope you learn as well.

“When one teaches, two learn” – Robert Heinlein

a. How Blood Pressure Works – Wilfred Manzano

b.  How To Write Descriptively – Nalo Hopkinson

f. How Does Your Body Process Medicine? – Celine Valery

g. The Immortal Cells Of Henrietta Lacks – Robin Bulleri

h. Meet The Tardigrade, The Toughest Animal On Earth – Thomas Boothby

J. How To Unboil An Egg – Eleanor Nelsen

K. Why Do Airlines Sell Too Many Tickets – Nina Klietsch

L. How To Squeeze Electricity Out Of Crystals – Ashwini Bharathula

M. What Makes Muscles Grow? – Jeffrey Siegel

Deep Lesson (lol)

Isn’t it just wonderful how God has given us the ability to learn?, and what is even more amazing is that he also gave us the wisdom to impart what we have learnt to others.

I remember being taught about HeLa cells in Immunology classes in uni, but everything that was said literally went into one ear, and came out through the other, but watching the video about HeLa cells has made the subject so much easier to understand (and remember).

In a nutshell, let us appreciate the gift of learning given to us freely by God. We should also always seek out ways to share with others what we have been privileged to learn, and i’m sure we will be blessed doing that.


With loads, and loads of love,

Ihuoma ♥
