    I'm 19 years old and have absolutely no scientific knowledge. That needs to change. Unfortunately I can't afford, or have time for a College course or something like that; so what I need is some online resources or books that will teach me the basics and allow me to move on to more complex topics. Video lectures/tutorials or books on Amazon.co.uk would be best, but I'll take whatever you recommend. Just remember that I need to start with the most basic science.

    Another recommendable source is this one:
    Understanding Science: An overview

    If you have further questions, do not hesitate to ask them.
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.
