  • This video is too beautiful for words. Many people have midlife crises due to fear of chasing their dreams. This video inspires us to take one step at a time, forget ourselves and dedicate to the craft that we wish to pursue. Love you man!

  • 6 years ago I began using 3D software for fun. and I no longer have as much fun using it. Thinking about it now, I enjoyed being able to constantly learn new things. I still suck at the program, but I know enough that using it I'm not learning all the time anymore.

  • I think it would be really cool if you tried to learn stair sliding! I don't know how it's actually called but it's when you slide down stairs with your shoes without lifting them basically like you were skating down the stairs

  • Try to do already learnt skills, or writing with your weak hand or learning a new language, that would be really interesting!

  • Hi Mike my name is Fares it means knight in Arabic, since I was young I said I have to earn my name by raiding a horse last weekend I signed for an event of all day with horses and I nailed it by raiding a horse for more than 1h and managed to jump with it also standing on it. I challenge you to do the same . Best regards.

  • I happen to think that the true purpose of life In it's core, is to learn, and have a good time doing it. Everything lines up perfectly for that idea. Simple psychology indicates that a distracted mind, is a happy mind. And what do humans do better than any other species, what is our special "thing"? Learning. Learning distracted you, it makes you grow mentally, it helps man kind, If you're lucky. Think about it, every major achievement ever to be had by man kind was born from learning. From learning to take our first breath, to learning to go to the moon. If you want a good life, you want a happy life. And if you want a happy life, I would argue that you want knowledge. I would argue, that the purpose of life, is knowledge.

  • You're such an inspiring dude Mike. Your exploits are obviously aided greatly by your intelligence and psychological health. I wonder can a person learn to be neurotypical?

  • Since you are a guitar player you could try learning to make one. Honestly luthiery is probably one of the most enjoyable hobby. Starting from a wooden plank and see the result. The process is nice, but the result makes you really proud too. But it takes even more time than muscle ups ;)

    • Oh yeah, and please don't cheat buying a kit, that's not "building", rather assembling like some Ikea furniture ;)

  • Request! Can you still perform the skills you learned during making of these video's nowadays? Not necessarily with the records you made for yourself but just, can you still do them? Break a glass with your voice, spin a baseball on your fingers, split an apple with your hands, the little simple things. Please make a video showing us what you still can do!

  • So, in your interest in learning... You might consider doing your own spin on Mike Row's "Dirty Jobs". I am sitting here watching a re-run on TV, and thinking about how much it reminded me of your channel... Its the incessant desire to learn. I think setting some kind of metric for learning a career skill, and how difficult it is, would be an excellent way to try to invest the youth into trade skills (look up the trade-skills gap). And also, as a welder (started in highschool and placed 2nd in my state in the Skills USA competition when 17), turned Welding Engineer... ...I'd like to see how long it takes you to pass a standard stick welding test. (Welding really isn't that hard, with practice) A (7018) 3G, with 3/8" (or metric equiv.) Plate test should be a good challenge.

  • This is a strange one, but have you ever thought of arranging a Learn Quick master class? You could teach dice stacking or something like that that would only take an hour or 2? And it could serve as a meet and greet too :) also, it is always lovely seeing my name at the end of these videos :) I hope you have a lovely day!

  • For me it's that one special moment when something 'clicks'. The hours and days and weeks of practice, small improvements here and there, picking up that nuance, this trick, the other knack and then all of a sudden BAM! Something clicks and you nail a task for the first time, that feeling is incredible and thankfully I keep that feeling every day at work thanks to my career.
