  • What do I do?
TL;DR I make videos often on anthropological topics covering info most people don't think about.

I create videos on topics, ideas, and questions I don't see a lot of people talk about in order to add interesting insight.  I often focus on anthropological topics, sometimes with an emphasis on definitions of terminology: Could Mars colonies one day want independence?  Are humans going extinct?   How many people did it take for you to exist?  Are words real?  What will happen to your photos when you are gone?

My goal on YouTube is to get people interested in the things that they never even knew they didn't know.

Beyond that, I also make fun side videos such as: IFTANK (10 Interesting Facts That Almost Nobody Knows), use language to look at things differently (What is a berry? Places you did not know are actually islands), and so forth.

  • Why Patreon?
I've been making Think Fact videos for over five years, and in that time I treated making content as exclusively a hobby.  I didn't feel comfortable asking people for money.  Now that I've graduated university, being laid off from my job, and my car is broken down… I decided that I might as well give this my all!  Financially speaking, I'm not all that far away from being able to make YouTube a full-time career.  Once I get past my first goal ($600), I can sleep easy at night.  I realized that if I want this to work I need to get out of my own comfort zone and ask for help, it won't work otherwise.  That being said, the community around my channel means the world to me.  I see Patreon also as a means to connect with people who care for my work and this community so much that they're willing to pay.  That kind of generosity is just above and beyond, and I would like to know people who care that much.  Please consider supporting, thank you.

  • Who am I?
My name is Dale Winslow.  I'm a happy-go-lucky guy who likes to be positive!  I recently graduated university with my BA in anthropology.  At the peak of my channels success (2015), I realized I had to set an example.  I left YouTube in order to finish my degree with the highest grades I could. I realized that came with the consequence of an enormous amount of potential momentum and growth, but I didn't feel comfortable representing the EDU community if I couldn't even put my own education first.  I had 100K subscribers at the time, earning about 100 to 500 new people a day.  It was hard at first to walk away, but it was the right thing to do.  Again, the community part of my YouTube channel means the world to me, and I knew I needed to do this not only for the EDU community, not only for myself, but to be able to stand in front of them with my head held up high knowing that I have walked the walk.  Hopefully, that can motivate other people.  I'm not perfect and I’ll always make mistakes, but I hope to show that I can be an example of a person who is able to overcome the odds while doing the right thing.

Are you a special flower who is also a bit strapped for cash?  Here is the 3 dollar rank just for you.  There are no extra perks, you just get to know you're a special flower because you gave a little more.

Includes Discord rewards
Extra Credit Rank.

This rank will have you placed in the credits of my videos!  Forever leaving a mark on the content I make, like a cool tattoo that one won’t regret later. 


This includes lower tier benefits, special flower and all.

Early bird rank lets you watch videos before they’re made public.  


Also, just like a bird, I hope you have sharp eyes.  If you catch an error, I’ll thank you in the video's description for the help! 


Plus, all you early birds will get a tweet shout out to show my appreciation for your support!


This includes lower tier benefits, special flower and all.

Includes Discord rewards
Gold Member Rank
$20 or more per month

Want to be a "Gold member"?  Well, this rank will make your name gold in the credits section.  


Not only that but you can tell me how much you like gold because you'll be able to join VC on discord.  


Also, you can watch update videos on what I am doing and working on.  This may also include test footage .  It’s a golden opportunity to connect with each other.


This includes lower tier benefits, special flower and all.

Includes Discord rewards
Chatterbox Of Fame Rank (COFR)

You will be added to a “Hall of Fame” list forever.  You will always be known for your contribution.


While pledging you will be able to have early opportunities before everyone to get access to limited supply offers that may arise.


But wait, there’s more! You can offer up questions that I am willing to cover in a livestream, or maybe even a video all together.

(Family friendly please)


Lastly, you will be able to have access to a special discord chat with only people who offer $50 or more.  As things get more crowded, it’s a great place that’s a bit less, well, chatty.


This includes lower tier benefits, special flower and all.

Includes Discord rewards
Platinum Member Rank
$100 or more per month

Becoming a Platinum supporter will make it so your name in the video is bigger and, well, Platinum.  


Not only that but I will personally thank you at the end of a video as well.


I would love to be able to have a personal conversation with you if you would like.  Please inform me of a means that works best for you and we can plan something out!


If I'm ever in your area, hit me up!  If I have time, it would be awesome to talk with someone who has chosen to give so much.  We can talk about just about anything.  One thing though, don’t ask me about my thoughts on Idaho potatoes.  Everyone has a line.


If you ever need help with anything YouTube related, let me know!  I'd be glad to give you all the advice and help I possibly can give.


This includes lower tier benefits, special flower and all.

Potato Rank
$125 or more per month

Well, you did it.  This is the top tier.  You get everything from the lower tiers, BUT! You’ll have the option of having me mail you a superior MAINE potato if you live in a ‘participating’ country. Sorry Think Fact fans in the remote places of the Amazon.


You will also have my thanks in a personalized letter for going above and beyond.  Not because you had to, but because we all can agree that potatoes are simply the best.


You can boil’em, mash’em, stick’em in a stew.


I would love to be able to voice chat/video chat with you prior, and just talk to you.


In all seriousness, thank you for the little extra.
