Tough competition out there. Do you watch Numberphile at all? It is my go to math channel.



Yes! That is a great channel. I could never top him, but hopefully somebody would learn something from me.

You have to have a hook, or don't bother.
You have to be unique somehow, give
people a reason to watch. Too many
boring math channels out there already,
you have to be not boring talking about
a boring subject.

I've thought about getting a well-endowed model to ask me questions, but it would seem ridiculous if she didn't actually understand what I'm talking about. I will probably start out just being myself and see where it leads. It isn't like there is a shortage of material when it comes to math.

Youtube is the worst thing since carbo loading on plain sliced bread.

Get someone skilled in nude body painting and have them draw/paint the math concept on the model's body while you explain. You can time lapse it some to move the pace along for some of the drawing parts.. 100s of thousands of subscribers in no time.

Nude body painting is allowed on youtube.

You could explain gambling scenes in movies, and break down the math on what's going on, like in Rounders or something like that

Actually, that's a killer idea. Vegas is
great place for such girls, too. I'd
watch.

Thanks, that's not a bad idea.

I've been thinking about it for
the last hour. You'd need a few
girls and rotate using them.

It's perfect because math guys
are notoriously shy with women,
especially nude ones. They would
never do something like this, but
they sure as heck would watch it.

It's so unique I bet it would take
off like a rocket.

Yup, it's on Youtube

I think it was Casino Royale, one of those 007 movies where they were playing NLHE and the hands were: 4oak, SF, and royal flush, something ridiculous like that. Anyway what're the odds lol
