3. Video of the Day III (above) features Jordan Peterson on the gender earnings gap.

================================================

4. Video of the Day IV (above) Jordan Peterson calmly dismantles feminism in front of two feminists, with this money quote about 9:30:

The social constructionists claim that the differences between men and women are socially constructed, that it’s a consequence of environment that men and women differ. But what the scientific literature indicates is that as cultures become more egalitarian, like they have in Scandinavia, the differences between men and women actually increase rather than decrease, which is a direct riposte to the constructionist view, so they just deny it. The biggest gender differences in the world in interest and temperament are between Scandinavian men and women; it’s exactly the opposite of what everybody predicted.

===============================================

5. Video of the Day V (above) is from the 1943 musical film Stormy Weather, and features a dance performance by the Nicholas Brothers that Fred Astaire called “the greatest dance number ever filmed.” It was an amazing dance routine to the song “Jumpin’ Jive” performed live by Cab Calloway and his orchestra. The part starting at about 2:30 when they start doing multiple jumping splits down the stairs is some of the most amazing dancing/gymnastics I’ve ever seen.
