I fucking. Love. This man.
Ok, first off, I adore the sense of humor, it’s just so goddamn golden, it’s over simplified and it knows it.
It’s almost like he’s mocking academics and scholars agonizingly going every tiny detail of history and arguing over the molecules.
He glosses over it, but there are these brief seconds where you can absolutely tell he’s studied it carefully and trivialized it in a meaningful way, like, he brushes over a lot of shit, but he knows he HAS to, and how does he do it?
By making really clever one-second story gloss-overs.
I just adore it.
I remember more of AP World history than I care to and boy, was this fun.
Thank you so much, I really enjoyed 20 minutes of my life there, I just think these videos are great.
Maybe they’re not as detailed as people who’re cramming for AP World need, but…it’s great on timelines and letting you know the chronology of shit.
Plus it’s funny enough to get you a little more interested in parts of history you’re not conventionally taught, right?
I mean seriously, he covers so much ground in such a great way that you’re compelled to figure out what he was referring to…
because as I mentioned, HE knows.
and it’s funnier when YOU know.
So it’s compelling you to find out.
I just love it, man, I love these.
