I found this summary video on the front-page of Youtube today. Pretty neat.

"From him they learnt many things it were not good for any but the great Valar to know, for being half-comprehended such deep hidden things slay happiness; and besides many of the sayings of Melko were cunning lies or were but partly true, and the Noldoli ceased to sing, and their viols fell silent upon the hill of Kôr, for their hearts grew somewhat older as their lore grew deeper and their desires more swollen, and the books of their wisdom were multiplied as the leaves of the forest."

I like CGP Grey, and while sometimes I (very) occasionally he has errors, this video was solid through and through. Thumbs Up

Yup, was a fun watch. Nod Only thing that struck me was that he left out how Durins line claimed they got the Ring of Thrór directly from Celebrimbor. Though you can only get that much in in that short a video, I get that.

True, but considering that their claim was suspect anyway, I think it's the kind of omission that makes sense if you're trying not to overwhelm people who are just being introduced to this stuff.

You don't necessarily want to get too nitpicky with stuff like "well by the time of LOTR, most Hobbits had stopped living underground" either, until you're sure that people are interested in getting into the nitty-gritty. Razz

Yeah, it's a run through where you give a basis, and then people look into the deapth if intersted. I get that. I always found the deapth far more interesting though.  Razz

And I always felt more inclined to believe the dwarves, as who other than Sauron could acsertain that he got all seven from Celebrimbor by torture. Mad

Ah yes, I saw this video on some other site as well. It was pretty funny.
