Watch This Video To Learn 56 Acronyms And Initialisms

There are a lot of great science channels on YouTube, but none of them are better at lists than Mental Floss. The service has previously put together wonderful entries on a range of topics including groan worthy jokes and facts about US Presidents. This week, the channel offered up its newest entry entitled “56 Acronyms and Initialisms”, and not surprisingly, it’s really fascinating.

Conveniently organized by subject matters like Presidents, authors and companies, the footage hurtles forward with a pretty frantic momentum and offers an incredible amount of information in a really short period of time. Some of it I knew. Some of it I had no idea about, but with a pretty consistent stream of jokes and a snarky attitude throughout, all of it is worth watching.

If nothing else, channels like Mental Floss and V Sauce prove math and science can be taught in fun and fascinating ways. There are ways to be engaging and informative and to appeal to a wide range of viewers without compromising quality or depth. Here’s to hoping more people discover how much fun videos like this can be.
