Section 230 is a law that helps protect social networks like YouTube and Facebook from getting in legal trouble for the content their users post.

There are debates on whether to change this law or keep it as it is. If websites are held responsible for what users post, it could lead to more censorship and less freedom of speech. Watch this video to learn about the Supreme Court case that could change the internet forever.

Watch this video to learn about the harms of natural gas.

Why Traffic Scientists Want You to Cut People Off

A 6-minute YouTube video by Half as Interesting

As counterintuitive as it may sound, traffic scientists urge drivers to cut people off on the road to reduce traffic congestion and improve overall traffic flow. According to a recent study by the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, cutting off other drivers can help alleviate traffic jams. The study found that drivers who merge aggressively and take advantage of gaps in traffic can help to create a more even distribution of cars on the road, ultimately leading to less congestion. Watch this video to learn why, in some cases, you should cut people off while driving.
