Top YouTube Picks – September 2018

I’m long overdue for a blog post, so I thought I’d share some of my YouTube favorites from last month (in no particular order):

1) Rich Rebuilds – Rich has made a name for himself by completing the herculean task of cobbling together parts from two different salvaged Teslas (one flooded and one in a serious crash) to produce a fully-working Tesla Model S. The catch is that Tesla does not endorse such homegrown repairs and will not sell parts to Rich or others. Rich has become the de-facto leader of a community of Tesla owners who want to repair their own vehices. Motherboard did an excellent profile of Rich, linked here.

2) An Aerial Viewpoint – I’m not exactly sure how I stumbled across this channel but a YouTuber based in Fremont, Ohio has chronicled the removal of the Ballville Dam. He’s captured daily and weekly updates of the demolition process via drone footage.

3) Handeeman – This couple has built an off-grid compound in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. Most interesting to me was their techniques to harvest large amounts of rainwater for bathing and cooking.

4) Last but not least, NBA Fans Making Half Court Shots For Money/Cars Compilation
