* ''Blog/RaceForTheIronThrone'' by Steven Attewell is one of the most visited and popular fansites devoted to ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. It is especially noted for its Chapter-By-Chapter commentary that provides a detailed and knowledgable insight into the many AllohistoricalAllusion, FantasyCounterpartCulture and other meta-historical commentary used in the books, since the author is a policy historian who studied history in college.

* While you shouldn't take the NationalStereotypingTropes as fact, and a lot of details had to be trimmed around (not just the Nazi details either), ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' can teach you a lot about WWI if you look behind the lighthearted comedy.

** The Polandball wiki has a surprisingly thorough list of countries relations with each other. You can get a pretty good sense of who hates who and why in a much more streamlined package than browsing through hundreds of Wikipedia articles.

* The ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead'' typing tutor spinoffs, the "''Typing Of The Dead''" games, are fast-paced ways to brute force your way to learning how to type efficiently.

** World War II strategy games are also likely to get players interested in the facets of tactics and strategy within the war's history...especially if it's the kind of game to avert EasyLogistics.

* Some historically based strategy board games can really help in history class. A couple examples are ''Here I Stand'' (wars of the Reformation), ''TabletopGame/TwilightStruggle'' (the Cold War) and ''World in Flames'' (WorldWarTwo).

* ''{{VideoGame/Minecraft}}'' is basically a treatise on the location and allocation of natural resources disguised as a video game. Learning how to use redstone is a good way to learn boolean algebra.

If you have enough time and patience, you can create a calculator or even a ''computer'' (if a basic one) out of blocks and redstone.

* Casual listeners of music don't really think about the fact that a song is not in the usual 4/4 meter until they have to do something that involves committing to keeping a rhythm, like playing an instrument...or playing {{Rhythm Game}}s. Long-time players of ''VideoGame/{{DanceDanceRevolution}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{beatmania}}'', for example, may remember "Holic" being their first real touch with time signatures that aren't in 4/4, 3/4, or triple time (the song runs in 7/8, then 7/4, before finally switching to 4/4), making the song a WakeUpCallBoss for a number of players of both games.
