A simple question with a rich trove of answers: what insightful and thought-provoking websites have you found over the years? This list compiled by one Reddit user hits a variety of great sites, from the educational to the musical.

Here's a sampling from the list:

  • Khan Academy - a library of over 2,400 videos covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history. A mission to help you learn what you want, when you want.
  • Brain Pickings - "a discovery engine for interestingness, culling and curating cross-disciplinary curiosity-quenchers, and separating the signal from the noise to bring you things you didn't know you were interested in until you are." One of my favorites.
  • RSAnimate - Dozens of insightful talks by leading scientists and scholars in their fields drawn real-time on a white board. Awesome for visual learners.
  • High Existence - Challenging the way you live!
  • Heavy Petal - How to make seedballs, or flowerbombs. Get guerrilla gardening today!
  • SolarBeat - If planetary orbital velocities were put to music.
  • Rainy Mood - 30 minute high quality rain loop. Try playing it along with your favorite music.
