In this video:

Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s there was a legend that was passed around speaking of a special credit card only issued by American Express to people with more zeroes in their bank balance than a half eaten bowl of Cheerios. This was, of course, not true, or at least it wasn’t until 1999 when American Express decided to make the card a reality. To quote a director for the company, Doug Smith, “There had been rumors going around that we had this ultra-exclusive black card for elite customers. It wasn’t true, but we decided to capitalize on the idea anyway.”

In this video:

What happens to clothes after being dropped off at the dry cleaners is a mystery to most. We know that our clothes come back a whole lot cleaner than when we dropped them off, but how? And who first got the bright idea to clean clothing without water?

When Will You Die?

Patreon Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOCTt-O9TR8
DHJ Animation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPxXZu_N0g4
VidCon: http://www.vidcon.com

So, to be clear, I’ve done a thing here that you shouldn’t do, which is apply population statistics to individuals. But i did it for a good reason…uh…fun?

Of course there are many things that are likely to affect your age of death as much as or more than your current age (income, location, race, medical history, etc.) But also you gotta understand (and statisticians will hate this video for this reason and probably others) that the an average of life expectancy doesn’t tell you much at all about when an individual will die. For example, an change in child mortality changes life expectancy far more than a change in elderly mortality because the addition or removal of small numbers to an average will affect it dramatically.

This is why you’ll often hear that the life expectancy in some period of time was 35 years old. That makes it sound like people were all dying around 35, but in fact ages were distributed all over, but there were far more deaths of children and babies, which pulled the average way down. 80 year olds in the middle ages weren’t, like, some kind of mythical creature. “Life expectancy” just isn’t a super useful statistic for telling you what length of life to expect.

Also, it’s not even /that/ good at telling you things about public health. People are supposed to die, so a better measure (which Australia actually uses) is “Years of Potential Life Lost” or YPLL

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Years_of_potential_life_lost

The US has a surprisingly bad YPLL because of suicides, drug overdoses, homicide, and car accidents.

That allows you to study whether diseases kill lots of people who are at the end of their lives or people who might otherwise live a quite a long time. Like, dementia kills mostly very old people while suicide and accidents kill lots of young people. We shouldn’t give those deaths the same weight.

And then lastly, if you want to go all the way down this rabbit hole, you should google “Global Burden of Disease” which endeavors to measure beyond years of life lost and into the quality of those years. Like, disease can cause life-long chronic pain or disability, and those things should be considered as well as death.

OK, I am surprised by how much I just typed about this!

Mind-Blowing Illusions That Trick Multiple Senses

Try two months of Curiosity Stream at http://curiositystream.com/braincraft
SUBSCRIBE to BrainCraft! 👉 http://ow.ly/rt5IE

Your brain does its best to piece together the world – but our senses are susceptible to being tricked. For centuries we thought that optical illusions only tricked our visual perception – now we know that the same illusions can trick the touch perception of those who are blind. There’s more to the humble optical illusion than first meets the eye 👀
