10 LEGENDARY Discoveries and Scientists

From the enigma that is Nikola Tesla,to the 2 friends that cracked the DNA code, These are 10 of the Most LEGENDARY Discoveries and Scientists

HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don’t miss a beat !

5.Louis Pasteur –
December 27, 1822 – September 28, 1895 | France

You ever drink pasteurized milk? You ever wonder why it’s called pasteurized? It is because of Louis Pasteur. He discovered that heating up certain foods and drinks destroyed most of the bad bacteria that caused spoilage.

He also discovered the cause of fermentation, which opened the door for all those different tasty wines and micro brews, because people realized that different microorganisms cause different end products during the fermentation process. So, CHEERS TO YOU GUY !

4.Alexander Fleming – Penicillin
6 August 1881 – 11 March 1955 | England
Alexander Fleming as a Scottish biologist who kind of stumbled across the first instance of an antibiotic… ever.

To quote him, “When I woke up just after dawn on September 28, 1928, I certainly didn’t plan to revolutionise all medicine by discovering the world’s first antibiotic, or bacteria killer,” Fleming would later say, “But I suppose that was exactly what I did.”

It is impossible to say with certainty how many lives have been saved because of penicillin, but a general estimate is between 82 million to 200 million !

Even though he was the first person to cultivate penicillin, it took a big team from Oxford a few more years to figure out how to produce the product for the masses.

3.James Watson and Francis Crick – DNA
born April 6, 1928 | USA , 8 June 1916 – 28 July 2004 | England

Since 1869, physicists believed that a “giant hereditary molecule” existed, it wasn’t until 1953 that
James Watson and Francis Crick gave us the first correct model of DNA Structure.

This opened the gates, and minds to such things as genetic engineering in terms of evolution, profiling, bioinformatics and nanotechnology.

Also we might actually get a real life Jurassic Park someday. Which is pretty cool.

2.Albert Einstein – Theory of Relativity
14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955 | German Empire

There might never be enough said about the extraordinary mind of Albert Einstein.

He created a whole new way of looking at our world, and his most famous equation is
E=mc2 , which means that the energy equals mass multiplied by the square of the speed of light. In simple words, tiny amounts of mass can hold INSANE amounts of energy.

It would be a disservice to the man to try and explain his genius in a short video, so I will leave this segment with one of his own quotes

“When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute — and it’s longer than any hour. That’s relativity.”

1.Nikola Tesla – AC Current
10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943 | Serbia

Did you know that Tesla worked for Thomas Edison at one point? He even redesigned the direct current electric generators that were supposed to be the best in the world. He completed the work and after a dispute over payment, Tesla left Edison’s company on bad terms, heck you could say that he even held a grudge.

Things didn’t work out so well for him for the next few years, until two investors from New York decided to give him money capital.

At that point, the real “War of Currents” started. It was Edison’s Direct Current vs Tesla’s Alternating Current. Needless to say, Tesla won.

Tesla was much more than an inventor, he had a mind for a different future. He wanted wireless electricity, he wanted radio controlled machinery and he believed in the existence of a “death ray”.

Tesla’s life can be summarized in short as the “mad scientist.”

Being quoted on pigeons, Tesla had this to say

“I have been feeding pigeons, thousands of them for years. But there was one, a beautiful bird, pure white with light grey tips on its wings; that one was different. It was a female. I had only to wish and call her and she would come flying to me. I loved that pigeon as a man loves a woman, and she loved me. As long as I had her, there was a purpose to my life.”

from the Enigma that is Nikola Tesla to the two friends that cracked the DNA code these are ten of the most legendary discoveries and scientists number ten how entering computer science Alan Turing was instrumental in deciphering the German Enigma code but he did a lot more than that in the field of computer science Turing created the first working design for a stored-program computer system he went out to work on the Manchester mark 1 which is one of the world's earliest true computers it's funny because his achievements in the computer science field actually defined what theoretical computer science is even though he contributed so much to the United Kingdom in the world in general Turing was prosecuted for homosexual acts in 1952 he was chemically castrated and two years later he was found dead from cyanide poisoning his death was ruled a suicide but his scientific contributions looked number nine Marie Curie radioactivity Marie Curie was a Polish born physicist and chemist the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the only person to ever receive a Nobel Prize in two different sciences imagine putting that on your resume her studies began in the top-secret flying university in Warsaw and if you think I'm making this up I am NOT the flying University was an underground educational enterprise whose main purpose was to resist Germanisation and Russification of the polish school system in 1903 murray received the Nobel Prize in Physics alongside Pierre Curie and Henry Becker l for their research into radiation and in 1911 Murray received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery and isolation of the radium and polonium elements Curie died from a plastic anemia contracted from her long-term exposure to radiation number eight Sir Isaac Newton gravity everyone remembers the story of Newton and the Apple falling from the tree many have claimed there was just the myth in a feel-good story but there is evidence of it in Britain's Royal Society archives the concept of gravity has existed since the universe began but our understanding of it was solidified into a physical law in 1687 when Sir Isaac Newton published the mathematical principles of natural philosophy he laid out his laws of motion universal gravitation and planetary motion the scientific community finally had a grasp of universal gravity and how it really works with provable equations this opened the door for an astounding amount of future discoveries and inventions newton is one of the most revered minds the world has ever seen and it is impossible to say just how greatly his achievements affected science in other words the gravity of his discoveries is immeasurable number seven Michael Faraday electric current and generator as Jesse Pinkman once said yep magnets so did Michael Faraday except in Faraday's case his statement was monumental he is considered to be one of the most influential scientists in history due to his research into electromagnetic fields he pretty much laid out the groundwork for electricity the most intriguing part of Faraday's life is the fact that he received little formal education and his mathematical abilities were limited to the simplest form of algebra what he did have was the uncanny ability to experiment and convey his ideas in an easy-to-understand way he also realized the concept of refrigeration discovered benzene and most notably he found out that all matter has a diamagnetism property which opened the doors for awesome things like levitation not in the sense that we're all gonna be flying around soon but more like this number six Manhattan Project the atomic bomb formed in 1939 by the US government the Manhattan Project was a group of the brightest physicists in the world who had one mission create the ultimate weapon through splitting atoms as we all know they succeeded I have covered parts of the Manhattan Project in extensive detail in previous videos like the history of the aptly named demon core to learn how this object got its name check out these seven strange military science projects over here number five Louis Pasteur pasteurization you ever drink pasteurized milk you ever wonder why it's called pasteurized it is because of Louis Pasteur he discovered that heating up certain foods and drinks destroyed most of the bad bacteria that caused spoilage he also discovered the cause of fermentation which opened the door for all those different tasty wines and microbrews because people realize that different microorganisms cause different end products during the fermentation process so cheers to you guy number four Alexander Fleming penicillin Alexander Fleming is a Scottish biologist who kind of stumbled across the first instance of an antibiotic ever to quote him when I woke up just after dawn on September 28th 1928 I certainly didn't plan to revolutionize all medicine by discovering the world's first antibiotic but I suppose that's exactly what I did humble guy it is impossible to say with certainty how many lives have been saved because of penicillin but a general estimate is between 82 million to 200 million even though he was the first person to cultivate penicillin it took a big team from Oxford a few more years to mass-produce the product number three James Watson and Francis Crick DNA since 1869 physicists believed that a giant hereditary molecule existed it wasn't until 1953 that James Watson and Francis Crick gave us the first correct model of DNA structure this opened the gates and minds to such things as genetic engineering in terms of evolution profiling bioinformatics and nanotechnology also we might get a real-life Jurassic Park someday which is kind of scary but cool number two albert einstein theory of relativity there might never be enough said about the extraordinary mind of albert einstein he created a whole new way of looking at our world and his most famous equation is e equals MC squared which means that the energy equals mass multiplied by the square of the speed of light in simple words tiny amounts of mass can hold insane amounts of energy it would be a disservice to the man to try and explain his genius in a short video so I will leave this segment with one of his own quotes when a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour it seems like a minute but let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour that's relativity huh I finally get it number one Nikola Tesla and the AC current did you know that Tesla worked for Thomas Edison at one point he even redesigned the direct current electric generators that were supposed to be the best in the world he completed all his work and after a dispute over payment Tesla left Edison's company on bad terms heck you could say the heave and held a grudge things didn't work out so well for him for the next few years until two investors from New York decided to give him money capital at that point the real War of the currents started it was Edison's direct current versus Tesla's alternating current needless to say Tesla one Tesla was much more than an inventor he had a mind for a different future he wanted wireless electricity he wanted radio-controlled machinery and he believed in the existence of what he called a death ray Tesla's life can be summarized in short as the mad scientist being quoted on pigeons Tesla had this to say I have been feeding pigeons thousands of them for years but there was one a beautiful bird pure white with light great tips on its wings that one was different it was a female I had only to wish and call her and she would come flying to me I loved that pigeon as a man loves a woman and she loved me as long as I had her there was a purpose to my life I don't know how deep you want to get into this thing but I think he really really really really liked that pigeon check out the featured comment below subscribe for more world on earth and I'll see you in the next

for every intelligent logical theory about the world's history there's one that is just strange he also believed that the Sun was only 32 miles across not 860,000 welcome to watchmojo.com and today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 bizarre alternate theories of history the human race will become one found in the world the abode of reasonable men for this list we're looking at those theories that people once or somehow still do believe about the past however we're not including prophecies such as the prediction of the end of the world in 2012 now the victims and we've seen many are said to have adhere to the Mayan quiche calendar which predicts the end of time to occur on the 21st of December of this year nor are we including creation myths like the idea that we all live on the back of a turtle number 10 the garbage theory many bizarre theories of history involve aliens in one way or another secret of electricity was given to the Egyptians by the extraterrestrials but none is as gross as the garbage theory suggested by Thomas Gould of Cornell University this theory states that humans essentially evolved from garbage that was left on earth by visiting aliens thousands of years ago we guess this could explain why humans produce an enormous amount of trash perhaps it's just in our DNA and launched the garbage into outer space some experts claim the ball might return to Earth someday but the concerns were dismissed as depressing number 9 the zoo hypothesis yeah the system zoo can enlighten you from one alien theory to another the zoo theory suggests that aliens not only exist but are also completely aware of the human species on earth it even goes so far as to say that aliens won't make contact with us until we reach a specific technological political or ethical standard essentially we're like animals in a zoo if the animals had no idea they were being watched by thousands of people it's fake number eight the matrix theory or simulation hypothesis is just fantasy is there a chance one of us could be neo according to this theory yes you are a slave neo like everyone else you were born into bondage born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch some scientists have hypothesized that we actually live in a computer program and human life is essentially one large simulation basically life's just one big game of the Sims always broken the toilet as well that has to be replaced of course we have no way of knowing whether this is true or not because these computers stimulate our minds and create our reality making us think that what we are experiencing is real obviously this feels real but but it mean I mean it seems unlikely to be real number seven expanding or growing earth hypothesis that huge Canyon it wasn't there this morning and 400 miles for the North went Reyes same thing believe it or not this theory was first suggested by Charles Darwin hey even geniuses have an off day however if you ignore plate tectonics this theory could make some sense it states that the earth is always expanding the continents were originally part of a large supercontinent but instead of drifting apart they separated because the earth expanded surprisingly there are still present date advocates of this theory proving that some people will believe absolutely anything this means that the earth is accelerating in its growth in the last 65 million years earth nearly doubled in size at least this theory is slightly more plausible than the geophysical global cooling hypothesis which claims that the earth is contracting now that is just ridiculous dude number 6 the sky is a ceiling essentially the idea here is that earth is one giant box or container that we live in and that the sky is the top or uppermost limit of that box in other words the sky is a ceiling this is a notion that goes back to ancient Egypt of course the invention of the telescope and eventually space travel disproved this theory everybody good plenty of slaves for my robot colony get away humor setting so he'd fit in better with his unit makes it relax is this number five the Hollow Earth hypothesis okay so we know that the earth is not a ceiling but what if what we saw in the sky was actually located in the center of the earth that's the basis for this theory which was hypothesized as far back as the late 17th century perhaps even earlier depending on your sources but became popular in the early 19th century thanks to John Cleves Symmes jr. the US Army officer and lecturer stated that the earth was a shell over 800 miles thick with openings at both poles u.s. President John Quincy Adams even supported a potential expedition to the North Pole hole but thankfully Andrew Jackson stopped it before it could even begin it's a see it's an ocean waves and currents the ocean of the underworld number 4 the Anunnaki aliens giant beings with muscular bodies wearing things that look like wristwatches thanks in large part to the History Channel many people believe that aliens were somehow involved with ancient civilizations could it have been an alien race known as the Anunnaki they were in a sense extraterrestrials they walked the earth they ruled people the Anunnaki were the gods in Mesopotamian cultures in particular the Sumerian Pantheon but this theory suggests that they were actually a race of aliens that settled on planet earth to mine gold the real question is why did aliens need gold perhaps the answer can be found not here on earth but on another planet number three the Illuminati through history the Illuminati they disappeared hundreds of years ago did they look at that again it's an amber driven it's the same image forward and backward you may be surprised to learn that there once was an actual group considered to be the real Illuminati while today the term applies to several groups it usually refers specifically to the Bavarian Illuminati a secret society that was founded in 1776 but be Illuminati were infiltrators there wasn't a powerful organization on earth they didn't penetrate including the Vatican by hiding in plain sight while most people believe that the society essentially ended in 1790 some theory suggests that the group survived and was responsible for several important historical events including the French Revolution and the assassination of JFK several modern organizations also claimed to be related to the original group some of us are against the Illuminati we are against Illuminati at our own detriment when people are against the Illuminati then they get punched in the face all the time number 2 Lemuria and Atlantis now some of you may ask why Atlantis it's just a myth isn't it pure fantasy well that is where you'd be wrong most people know the story of Atlantis an island that allegedly submerged into the Atlantic Ocean Lemuria has a similar story supposedly it was a landmass that was located in the Indian and Pacific Oceans the theory of Lemuria was suggested by Philip Slater in an attempt to explain the presence of similar fossils in India and Madagascar granite which normally forms only on dry land is a strong evidence that continent used to exist in the area although there is proof that several sunken continents do exist the theories of Lemuria and Atlantis have largely been dismissed although their myths are still relatively popular gotta hand it to you really came through but I take that back no honorable mentions this time around what happened to Helga well after when a flaming Zeppelin come down on it missing number one the flat earth model ok brother Flintstone need a strike to win and you do it hey is your flat of course we have to end with one of the most famous theories about the earth this notion claims that the earth isn't round but rather flat and that it's possible to sail off the end of the world of course it's almost universally known that this theory is false and that the earth is indeed round but some proponents of this idea still exist such as the group known as the modern flat earthers but they're all fake images there is no actual image of a ball earth if you google it you'll see that they're all composites CGI or literally taken through a round window and low Earth orbit so they faked the first one yes these people have never looked at a picture of the Earth from space 500 years ago everybody knew the earth was flat in 15 minutes ago you knew that people were alone on this planet imagine what you know tomorrow do you agree with our list nobody knows what's your favourite bizarre theory of history for more great top 10s published every day be sure to subscribe to watchmojo.com it's been around for centuries it's just been forgotten you

11 Unreal Ancient Sites and Artifacts



Views:255228|Rating:4.70|View Time:11:9Minutes|Likes:2235|Dislikes:144
From the hollowed out rocks of Mada’in Saleh to the BIGGEST Pre-Columbian city in South America; These are 11 Unreal Ancient Sites and Artifacts

HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don’t miss a beat !

11.Mada’in Saleh
LOCATION – Saudi Arabia

10.The New World Egg

9.Kaunos
LOCATION – Turkey, Anatolia

8. The Maya Calendars

7.Ajanta Caves
LOCATION – INDIA, Maharashtra

6.The Mask of Agamemnon

5.Skellig Michael
LOCATION – Ireland

Quick, what does Star Wars The Force Awakens, and The Witcher game series have in common?

Skellig Michael, thats what. Skellig Michael is the larger of two islands off the coast of Ireland, sometime during the 6th to 8th Century AD a monastery was built, and the island became a hermitage. It is believed that no more than 12 people lived on the island at any one point.

The island was suffered a Viking attack in 823 , and due to harsh harsh climate change, the island was abandoned in the 12 Century AD.

Due to its recent rise in popularity, which will increase even more when scenes from the upcoming Last Jedi movie appear, conservationists believe the influx of visitors will negatively impact local Puffin and Storm Petrel colonies.

4.Panagyurishte Treasure

Panagyurishte is a small town that has many ancient ties, located Bulgaria, the the town became famous for the immense Thracian treasure found there. You might have heard of one of the most famous Thracians – I’m SPARTACUS (such a great scene )

Back to the treasure, it is believed to have been used as a ceremonial set by Thracian kings, the total weight of all the objects is 13.5 lb (6.164kg) of 24 Karat Gold. If you had to put a price on the gold alone, it is worth $237,125 today.

Many scholars consider this the best Thracian treasure ever found and people have commissioned a few exact replicas of it, some speculate that the original treasure which sits in a Museum in Sofia, is actually a replica itself.

3.Chan Chan
LOCATION – Peru, Andes Mnts.
You may have never heard of this place before, but it is the largest pre-Columbian era city in South America ! It served as the capital of the Chimor Empire, who were later taken over by the Inca Empire.

Chan Chan translates to “Sun Sun”, it got its name from the incredible sunny climate in the area. The city was founded sometime around 850 A.D. and grew to an estimated 60,000 people in 1300 A.D.

After the Inca take over Chan Chan fell into an economic decline, but that did not stop the Spaniards from looting an estimated 80,000 pesos (or $5 million in today’s money) worth of gold from it.

The city fell into complete obscurity and was abandoned, well only until 1969 when archaeologists began excavations at the site. Nowadays, the city is World Heritage Site and the grandiosity of it still inspires many explorers and adventurers.

2.Celtic Tomb
In March of 2015, a team from the National Archaeological Research Institute started excavating a site in France, what they found was astonishing !

A burial chamber for a Celtic Prince was unearthed, filled with Greek Iron Age artifacts, Denis Gliksman managed to capture photos of the most prominent ones. We are looking at a wine cauldron with a sculpture of the Greek God Acheloos on it. The original god of all water ! Sadly, he got demoted to just a normal river god during the hellenistic period.

These artifacts shed a new light on Iron Age trade

1.Terracotta Army
LOCATION – China

In 1974, some farmers in China stumbled across one of the most unreal archaeological discoveries ever, the terracotta army. Can you imagine what it was like to find hundreds of statues of soldiers all perfectly lined up? At this point, I would imagine there was an evil ancient curse, that would befall me too if I didn’t get out of there fast enough !

The figures date back to around 210-209 BC, and they are believed to be the protectors of the Emperor in his afterlife, they are made of terracotta, and sport some amazing details. Terracotta stands for “baked earth”, commonly referring to clay-based ceramics. The army is only a small part of the 38 square mile (98 sq.km) necropolis, the tomb of the emperor has actually never been opened due to concerns over preservations of its artifacts.

from the hollowed-out rocks of Madyan saleh to the biggest pre-columbian city in south america these are 11 unreal ancient sites and artifacts number 11 modern stelae location Saudi Arabia marine saleh's commonly referred to as algae tear and it is the first site in Saudi Arabia to be considered a world heritage site it was part of the ancient nabatean civilization which boasted petra is its capital you can see the similarities between the two in 106 ad the Roman Empire conquered the Nabataean people and made the area a part of the Roman province of Arabia and after the collapse of the Roman Empire the region became part of the Ottoman Empire and eventually the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia due to the harsh climate in long periods of abandonment the site has been preserved immensely the official nickname of the site is the capital of monument because of his grandiosity compared to all other ancient sites in Saudi Arabia number 10 the new world egg there's a lot of mystery surrounding this intricate ostrich egg it is actually considered the oldest new world globe in existence made in the early 1500s the object is very spherical because it's made of the lower parts of two ostrich eggs and it is about the size of a grapefruit no one knows who made this artifact but some scholars believe it might have been constructed in Leonardo da Vinci's workshop and according to the Daily Mail more than 100 experts were contacted during the research into the ostrich egg and it was confirmed that the object is authentic the best part of this whole thing has to be one of the Latin inscriptions on the egg cheeks vent Draconis or in english here be dragons number nine Cal knows location turkey Kaunas was a nation city that his history dating back to the 10th century BC in legend the city was founded by Conners a grandson of the Greek god Apollo in reality it's believed the original name of it was kid and it was founded by the local carrion people even the father of history Herodotus wrote about carros and its importance as a pork city in the area according to him the qanun fiercely defended their city from the oncoming Persian Empire but sadly history is not like the movie 300 they were defeated well maybe I spoke too soon after the Persian Empire was pushed back because of the feet suffered by Xerxes the first Kaunas joined the belly and league which was a group of city-states under the leadership of athens it is believed that this is the main reason the city changed his name to colonists and adopted its legendary origin today the site is one of the most interesting in the area and the highlight is without a doubt the tombs that are carved into the side of the mountains number 8 the Maya calendar it is not easy to make everyone freaked out collectively over the end of the world as we know it but the Maya calendar and prophecies accomplish that the predictions even got some big stream time in the epic 2012 movie and of course who can forget the countless hours of videos ranging from the History Channel to your local youtuber the origins of the Maya calendar date back to around the fifth century BC and explain in the simplest terms the calendar consists of three wheels the Hobbs civil calendar the Tolkien divine calendar and of course the Long Count the last long count finished on 1111 December 21st 2012 prompting mass hysteria and doomsday preparations well the world didn't end which is pretty cool number 7 da Jon Secada location India these incredible Buddhist Games monuments were created in two phases during the 2nd century BC and between 480 and 650 ad inside you will find the best preserved ancient Indian paintings and sculptures that inspired artists for centuries to come the whole site is protected by the Archaeological Survey of India and it has become a unesco world heritage site before its eventual discovery by the Western world in 1819 the site had fallen in disrepair and was covered in thick jungle growth it took a long while for the site to be completely cleaned up and preserved to this day there are issues with vandalism and overcrowding during the holiday season number 6 the mask of Agamemnon this funeral mass was uncovered in 1876 by Heinrich Schliemann at the ancient site of Mycenae it was believed that the maps belonged to the legendary Agra men month the commander-in-chief of the Greek army during the famous Trojan War modern dating of the mats contradicts this theory and the problems don't stop there apparently Heinrich had a somewhat sketchy record of adding extra artifacts which they don't belong so he was assisted by supervisors during his archaeological digs in the area there has been many attempts to discredit the find by comparing it to similar mask found in the area there are some glaring differences in style but nothing is conclusive number 5 Skellig Michael location Ireland quick what the Star Wars The Force awakens in The Witcher game series have in common Gaelic Michael that's what killing Michael is the larger of two islands off the coast of Ireland sometime during the sixth to eighth century AD a monastery was built and the island became a hermitage it is believed that no more than twelve people lived on the island at any one point the island did suffer a Viking attack in 8:23 and due to harsh climate change the island was abandoned in the 12th century AD due to its recent rise in popularity which will increase even more when scenes from the upcoming last Jedi movie appear conservationists believe the influx of visitors will negatively impact local puffins and storm petrel colonies number for the fauna curators to treasure tonnage Irish States a small town that has many ancient sites located in Bulgaria the town became famous for the immense TRACON treasure found there it is believed to have been used as the ceremonial said by tracking kings the total weight of all the objects is 13.5 pounds of 24 karat gold if you had to put a price on the gold alone it is worth two hundred and thirty seven thousand dollars today many scholars considered as the best tracking treasure ever found some speculate that the original treasure which sits in the museum in sofia is actually a replica itself number three chan chan location Peru you may have never heard of this place before but it is the largest pre-columbian era city in South America it served as the capital of the Camorra empire poor later taken over by the Inca Empire chan chan translates to Sun Sun it got its name from the incredible sunny climate in the area the city was founded sometime around 850 ad and grew to an estimated 60,000 people in 1300 ad after the Inca takeover chan chan fell into an economic decline but that did not stop the Spaniards from losing an estimated 80,000 pesos worth of gold from it in today's money that's five million dollars the city fell into complete obscurity it was abandoned well only until 1969 when archaeologists began excavations at the site nowadays the city is a world heritage site and the grandiosity of it still inspires many explorers and adventurers number two celtic tomb in march of 2015 a team from the national archaeological research institute started excavating a site and france what they found was astonishing a burial chamber for LT france was unearthed filled with greek iron age artifacts then his Gilks minh managed to capture photos of the most prominent ones we're looking at a wine culled Rijn with a sculpture of degree got a kilos on it the original god of all water but sadly a kilos got demoted to just a normal River God during the Hellenistic period these artifacts actually shed a new light on iron age trade between Celts and Greeks Before we jump into number one here are some honorable mentions just wanted to say thanks for all the wonderful comments on the recent videos you are all awesome first we have the stone head of Guatemala this one is pretty controversial the sculpture was brought into the limelight with this photo appearing in a ancient astronaut Society magazine back in 1987 what you thought ancient aliens was a new generation thing it was described as a mystical sculpture that had no known builder in an undisclosed location in the jungle as always someone has to come and ruin all the fun an American archaeologist wrote a paper on the mysterious sculpture all the way back in 1941 it turns out a grieving widower carved it out of soft volcanic rock to commemorate his deceased wife we also have the Catalan atlas which is considered the most important Dark Age European map ever it is incredibly detailed and has helped settle quite a few territorial arguments and finally we have the Antikythera mechanism one of the most complicated Greek discoveries ever this by itself warrants a whole new video the most mysterious mechanisms of the ancient world number one the Terracotta Army location China in 1974 some farmers in China stumbled

greatest farm hole in ancient France two major feudal houses ohoo and Brewer were disputing the Loire country between them and the origins of course of the feudal castles lay in the need to defend

matter of record turn by turn the French King destroyed the power of the counts of dois of the dukes of brittany and of the counts of Anjou who had become the kings of England Shino was a major

War the Chateau now lay open to the air sudden River and gardens we say may well be the Chateau that most accurately reflects the spirit of all these changes since it lacks one entire structure namely a fourth wall making it easier to proceed between terraces grounds and main house thus advocators the initial quadrilateral was destined to undergo the metamorphosis wrought by the Renaissance luxury

Haizi is so clever that he can communicate with Rob using a new language system devised specially for orangutans let's start with an example from the vocabulary this is the symbol for Apple and you'll notice that it starts with a rectangle on the outside or the exterior and all food symbols start with a rectangle you notice there's a diagonal line going from corner to corner and a dot right in the center that is the only symbol that will ever look that way and that's the only name we'll ever have for Apple right on cue in swings the star of the show we start with these okay we'll sit up so you're ready to go there you go perfect Rob uses an intercom system to talk to a Z through the glass so what we're going to do is name this food which is an apple is ready okay and he tells me when he's ready to go here just give a little tap on the glass he's ready for the next question you're doing great I know it okay let's go now watch carefully okay I'm going to ask him to find the name for Apple on his screen perfect good job good good is that was exactly right and for AZ that's a very simple screen at this point he can work with screens that are actually much more complex and I'll go ahead and ask him to use one of the more complicated screens now same food again is okay good now I'm going to show him a very complicated screen good very good very good apart from food symbols like banana perfect is grapes crackers now watch and carrots there you go a Z nose over 72 different words including objects F like cups excellent well then rub back he even knows numbers and adjectives but perhaps the most surprising language skill is that AZ can use verbs and come up easy can ask me or tell me to open something when he uses that diamond shape symbol with the two lines inside you tell me what you want me to do with this first container okay open alright good that was actually a very good choice because there's a little something in there for him mistakes are actually quite rare he's into the high 90 ready okay high 90% accuracy with all the symbols that he works with now hey Z's astonishing accuracy demonstrates not just a strong grasp of syntax and vocabulary but a razor-sharp long-term memory I respect active

since that dr. kay like don't lift out live help done by the people in India as a religious faith Ferriday around Bose fade and artery known all over the world is one of the most complete sideshow marbles in history you know you people you're all here wondering what's next and I'm here asking that same question when we first began working on this show the world's weirdest performers we thought we were going to be spending six weeks on the road with well honestly a bunch of psychopathic freaks through dedicated research we had a chance to preview the subjects of our show in action [Applause] then we were certain we were going to be spending six weeks on the road with a bunch of psychopathic freaks Austin Texas home of an unusual love story two performers who are undeniably meant for each other the enigma and cats and maybe the weirdest married couple in the world certainly they're the only ones whose registry was at Koko's hornet whisker shop their show is called The Nine Lives of cats in it the enigma threatens the feline mortality of Katzen in nine different ways with stunts that range from the dangerous to the well frankly not so dangerous it's been in this sitting in a car for a couple of days a little bit rubbery the Enigma and Katzen are artists of the unconventional their canvas is the human body and frankly they're starting to run out of room here you will find the enigma not a or an enigma or I don't come in six-packs I'm no perfume but the enigma I am 31 years of age and I'm tattooed topped to toe with a blue jigsaw puzzle why the puzzle pieces well I'll tell you it's a way to become blue piece by piece it's the backside of the puzzle the arts on the inside I'm cats into the tiger lady I'm 25 years old when I was about 18 years old I began to get tiger stripes from head to toe it's my design so it's not exactly like a tiger stripes but it's my own motif and now I've been working on it for just about seven years as I helped develop the Enigma I put all the puzzle pieces on his whole body in a month and a half you can only eat worms for so many years before you begin to wonder if life is passing you by so in the late 90s the Enigma left his cushy sideshow gig and began touring with his wife Katzen in a world where tattoos and piercings have become commonplace enigma and Katzen have raised the bar in the body modification sweepstakes Katzen tattooed top to tail the tiger indeed has whiskers interface well I have horns you know she has tattoos as well but she needed that extra little something that established her as a tiger not electro girl or you know you know I know zebra chick or whatever but she needed to establish these Tigers she actually gets more attention from those whispers than I do from my horn little kitty yeah so I met Katzen in 92 Lollapalooza in Atlanta Georgia a little coffee shop and I was you know kinda scoping and I noticed her sitting at a table and I popped a quarter into my eyeball and and popped it out there was a little applause at the table over there so I walked over very smoothly and asked to sit down and she came out and saw the show and kiss me my mom says about the enigma that he is the best guy ever dated they get along so well got is scared me they always say your mom gets along with him look out but I got lucky in this case captain here will be holding a neon light and a fluorescent bulb and she will hit herself against two hundred and fifty thousand volts of electricity warning what you are about to see may be too intense for sensitive viewers what you are watching is real these are trained professionals who have practiced this stunt thousands of times watch it again in slow motion do not try this at home picture these two in sixty years sitting on the rocking chairs on their front porch watching the Sun go down on the one hand it's just really sweet and on the other hand it just gives me the heebie-jeebies there are other people out there who've had you know tattoos it's just like solid bunch of other little things but for one team my husband and I are pretty much like you see one third of the population of people who have ever done that I was the first woman in history to ever do it ever do a total body total themed tattoo and then came the enigma he's actually the only one in history to have a non animal theme for total themed tattoo so special guy wasn't it Shakespeare who said it's merely a child who fears a painted devil poof I'm a vampire thank you just down the road from enigma and Katzen another performer has stepped out of the limelight after years of sideshow touring mr. lifts Oh aka Joe Herrmann has turned in his membership card and taken the last exit to suburbia well I was born Joseph Hermann aka mr. lifts Oh duh b33 coming up but uh being in a circus ages yes I'm actually about 70 or 80 in circus years one would think that Joe Herman had been raised in the wild by rabid tree monkeys or toothless carnies but it turns out the real culprit was a beloved periodical first like really weird person I saw was in a National Geographic that my grandparents had a subscription to years back and that just kind of got me into like oh okay maybe you know there are alternative means of employment stuff you can't actually blame it all on National Geographic they had a hit a sideshow piece that they didn't like the 60s I think in one of the old magazines and there was a guy that had like he was looking anvils with his nipples and tongue and all sorts of piercings and stuff and I said you know I might want to try that so got a few piercings and tried weights and just kind of gradually built up from there yeah left ah well my axe is generally lift weights with my ears weights from the tongue ring nipples and I sort of hold an unofficial Guinness record for most weight lifted from a Prince Albert ring which is through the tip of your penis 55 pounds for weights lifted harder that Chinese are reflecting a cat could stretch it strike a match on it yeah there let's go let's take up do the head of his I lift up these two irons never one for understatement the Jim Rose sideshow where many of our performers began created a platform for those like live dough to show off their off beep talents 55 pounds left give it up pretty amazing mr. left Oh nobody on the camera crew had a Prince Albert ring but we all agreed if we did and we came home with 55 pounds attached to it our lives would kill us then again a double wedding in Vegas with the Midland Katzen probably builds a lot of Tolerance I'm April Herman I'm related to Joe by being married to him you know what I never actually dated we just got married and I wouldn't suggest that for the children at home but it works for us Joe's performance was not something that either attracted me or 55 pounds distracted me from him it's just part and parcel who he is Joe and I got married in Las Vegas five years ago and we had a double wedding with Katzen an enigma they didn't even the clerks at the courthouse didn't even give us a second look it was just another wedding day in Vegas I guess my parents did not meet Joe before we got married we eloped fairly quickly after knowing each other and they liked him 55 pounds they don't have any problem with him they liked him when they met him my parents are very non-judgmental they feel like you should know what a person is inside and not judge them by their cover although they do they were grounded in the reality of people will judge you by how you look but they don't believe that for their own personal selves they should do that so they're they love them I hope unfortunately it takes more than a supportive wife to support two dumbbells from your earlobes how the lift Oh act started I got piercings and then I started stretching them out to put bigger and bigger ones in with the intent to lift the piercings you start with a with small rings usually I know people that like I've got big piercings right away but the skin doesn't have a chance to get used to it and they tend to rip out a lot so if you start smaller the skin gets used to it getting bigger bigger and having the weight on there my ears and our penis was fine the nipples were a little sensitive but it generally it feels pretty much about the same I have a high pain tolerance anyway so it's all the same to me some I asked I didn't really do any studying I saw pictures of it and it was pretty much trial and error okay that feels a little painful I see a little bit of blood I better not try that that way again so it was mostly trying on there all nipples must get older and all are faded too long for the salad days of their youth Oh cucumber break cucumber break one of the many uses the amazing mr. lifts Oh has filed for a cucumber you're probably waiting for us to tell you how weird mr. lifts o is but the fact is nowadays he's just a regular guy cuts his grass on Sundays and used to tour with the sideshow well touring takes a lot out of you so I sort of went into semi-retirement I just I just can't travel anymore I've traveled around seeing the world you know we've been to Australia six times in South Africa everywhere in Europe Germany Scotland and after 10 years it just got to be you know I just want to retire it was fun when I was 23 now that I'm 33 it's like I've got a house and a wife I just want to relax a little bit in the heart of the world's weirdest city we found the boy next door that is if you live next door to a boy who eats glass and shoves things up his nose my name is Chris Mackenzie I'm 29 years old what I do are called sideshow arts or circus arts they were around several several years ago they sort of faded out a bit a few people kept doing them and now they're having a real resurgence historically blockheads hammer things up their nose but Chris McKenzie is a 21st century kind of guy why hammer when you can use power tools I had seen a couple flock headaches I hadn't seen anyone do a drill I heard about someone doing a drill an electric drill and was instantly intrigued and like okay I gotta try to move up to this this sounds like where things are going as far as Blockheads today working today there aren't millions of them so you don't want to hear something – oh that's not a bad idea let me see if I can do my take on it I I don't remember the real the steps I took to do it it was sort of one of those things like it worked on it and and sort of the next thing I knew it was in my show not many people had tried it but everyone had an opinion on it so I talked to everyone I possibly could about it then it came down to prob about two hours and he's staring at a drill on my table and just looking at it getting up walking away coming back in looking at it getting up walking away you know getting some dinner coming back and then you know finally using the knowledge I have just put it together figure it all out shoving a drill up your nose takes more than just guts it takes brains and if you want to avoid hitting them on the way in you better know where you're going your sinus passages are actually pretty large in the back of your head your sinuses sort of serve as a filter for your lungs you know both in and out so they're designed you know to catch quite a bit of whatever you happen to breathe in in this case it's you know a screwdriver so it's not quite right but the first thing you have to do is block it is get over your sneeze reflex because to get up there you're going right past that little bucket button in the back ear nose that makes you sneeze pushing a piece of cold steel up your nose may seem bad but at least a screwdriver doesn't have to come out the other end as far as immediate injury goes eating glass is one of the more dangerous thing there is a process to it to ensure that you don't really hurt yourself but the truth is it's glass you're chewing it so there's a lot of sharp edges that can do damage it's very much the same simple logic as eating you know an apple exact same thing goes in goes out we were waiting for Chris to regale us with lurid tales of life on the road with drunken knife fights between bearded ladies and the lizard boy sadly it was not to be another great misconception about being in circuses is that it's much different from the real world and the truth is it isn't I mean you're performing you're living six inches away from elephants and you know Tigers and trapeze artists but the truth is anything you have in the real world you have in the circus you have families you have there's a church service every week you get mail service you have TV you have electricity there's always gonna be that sort of carny image and everyone's head you know and the living in the trailer and you know all that stuff I don't know if it if it adds your enjoyment of my act then please feel free to believe it but truth is I live in an apartment with no wheels his home is the road traveling the country in a beat-up Winnebago tonight some more of the torture King is gonna get the audience of The Vic Theatre in Chicago a little more than they bargained for [Applause] he's gonna bicycle spokes 104 on his right forearm now he's is left bicep Oh God Oh God it's going through his ball cheese it's going through [Applause] [Applause] my name is Tim Cridland but I'm better known as Zamora the torture came Tim Cridland is no different than the boy who sat next to you in homeroom well okay no different than the really creepy boy who sat next to you in homeroom half is a guy named Tim becomes a more of the torture King what the hell happened man I was always been fascinated by things kind of strange and unusual and actually one of the things I had was a book which had descriptions of people in India and other countries like that doing things like snake-charming and walking on hot coals and that was something I found quite fascinating English I pursued an interest in throughout my life I'm called the torture King which was kind of a traditional title for somebody in a sideshow who does the type of things that I do and I'll be doing things like the most thing I think I'm most known for is taking sharpened pieces of wire like sharpened bicycle spokes and putting them through my body and I started out I was doing through the skin and the cheeks because you see I'm now doing through the muscle tissue itself I'll go right through the bicep I'll put one in my mouth and push down till it pops out under my chin by next to my throat so what's going right through the deep tissue [Applause] what she threw [Applause] what she turn little blood little bit proving that he actually did to preserve keep it away from all my open wounds stay back as Morris yes just a drop applause to prove to you it's real where does he come up with this stuff it's not like there's a course and self-torture at the local community college but we can tell you that everything's amaura does is real we saw it with our own eyes [Applause] I've used everything from you know medical books to old circus books wherever I can find the information and it's something that's very amenities of starting out very slow and and building up after I've accumulated all the knowledge so that I I can't do things as Extreme as I do today they don't understand torture case you are born to do the human opinion crochet I will never exploit you torture King now project oh yeah I have rabbit @yj do rabbit Samoas torture is not limited to bicycle spokes alone another of his infamous feats involves a six foot long piece of string a pair of forceps and a scalpel cuts to his abdomen a feat whose origins lie in ancient India I'll tell you taking a piece of string and I'll swallow it down you take a scalpel I'll cut myself right here right under the chest there to the breastplate take a force medical forceps reach in I'll pull the string out through the front of my body [Applause] he's pulling the string [Applause] some things are just more real than we'd like them to be Samoas ultimate achievement in mastery over pain involved a torture session that lasted several weeks a session not designed for the stage but to satisfy his own twisted curiosity and to make the rest of us go I have split my tongue not really for anything in the showbiz for purely personal reasons for my own amusement I actually did it myself for a head like a tongue piercing and then took fish fish line and tied it down tight so it slowly cut through it was kind of something that took a lot of bit of work dedication and perseverance to achieve I'll keep doing this until so I guess some horrible injury onstage will stop me but a people have done this type of act is way until they're there they're elderly agents in their 70s [Applause] okay you can't really describe the effect that Zamora has on audiences they just like him despite the skewers who the scalpels and all the rest of it he's still just Tim Cridland a guy with a lot of guts who does things that just shouldn't be possible [Applause] and he doesn't take all this too seriously I'm still working I'm trying to get people to get me for Christmas party so I was thinking I can do some things where I I pinned these Christmas ornaments on me and swallow a big candy cane but I haven't had a lot of people really bite that yeah strangely December is a very slow month for me Harley Neumann file gone bad undoubtedly the most amazing man in new Tripoli Pennsylvania you may think to find some of these performers you have to track through some fancy big city she told but disturbingly these performers are beginning to migrate to the very heartland of America ladies and gentlemen Harley Newman I'm Harley Newman I'm 49 years old at least at the moment what I do with my act it's kind of hard to describe if you've been to an old-fashioned circus sideshow you would probably have seen some of the things that I do and most of what I do comes from that tradition this is not person this is gruesome when I went to college I wanted to be a doctor and I discovered very quickly that I would never make it through pre-med because I couldn't figure out the chemistry I still don't understand chemistry and not long after that I thought hmm I can be a clown first you take a board like this and oh oh come on it's a stupid trick I'm gonna staple my tongue to afford to please you and and then when I got done with college finally I went I joined a baseball team I got hired as a mascot and then I was a circus clown for a couple years Harley set up a special performance for our cameras and invited all of nutri poli to johnson's barn to finally answer the question that the entire town has been asking namely what the hell is that you do Arlie okay I like escapes they're really interesting to me and I love all this sideshow stuff and I know how to train for it so why don't I build a new kind of show I usually open up with fire-eating and because a lot of the things that I do deal with very very well trained and well developed fear patterns it behooves me to begin a show with something that people can accept like fire-eating as the show progresses we'll go through progressively serious stunts so something that like a simple risk ty as a way to start you know and something with chains is nice because chains have a psychological sense of hardness you know and and operating a lock with my tongue and my teeth is something that's really interesting I mean no one has ever done a puzzle of that sort that I know of but then the last escape that I'll do is with saran wrap and that's where I'll put the fear of death and to be a noticeable chill fell over the room is the clear plastic octopus of death wrapped its cellophane tentacles around plucky Harley Newman because I'll get wrapped up in a quarter mile of saran wrap that's just to store chol to breathe through and people will pork the snorkel and I'll get everybody thinking that I'll be out in two and a half minutes but I won't come out until at least five so they'll see this thing struggle real hard and will slow down and slow down and slow down and tip over and since all of them will have held their breath for a while they'll know how long they can hold their breath most audiences it's about a minute and a quart or a minute and a half for most of them and when I get close to five-minute people will probably go into a panic and it's very common for someone to rush the stage to try to save me for an instant we did contemplate rushing the stage to save Harley then we remembered this note he gave us just before the performance began beds of nails are a big part of my act and the idea in a culture that believes that more of something means better or worse in this case more nails means it's going to hurt more well actually it the more nails there are the easier it is and so I went into this show having thought about doing ten nails for a month or so and I did ten nails right there and from there I worked my way down to four nails I've been doing four nails consistently for about fifteen years which is pretty intense the pressure per square inch on each nail is about 7800 psi which if you think about it is about the same as an elephant standing on one foot on a peanut if you've ever had an elephant stand on one of your peanuts you know how painful that can be in the end we started to admire Harley Newman and the life he had chosen in the beautiful countryside of new Tripoli Pennsylvania maybe it's because his wife made us pie or maybe it's because anybody willing to go mano-a-mano with Siegfried and Roy is okay with us I could go to Las Vegas now and do a headline show without fancy sound without fancy lights without a chorus or a bunch of glitter covered assistants and I can guarantee that I would get as good an audience response as almost anybody who used all of those things every boy has a dream and if it's your dream to lean your neck against a really big wooden stick on a Friday night at Caesar's Palace we say Rock on Harley Neumann rock on if you search the small clubs and back alleys of the Bay City you may find yourself in the company of Daniel browning Smith a young man whose commitment to his art goes beyond the hours he spends on stage [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] getting the boxes it is a combination like the mental focus only physical abilities I have to though the box isn't is it it is shorter than my legs are and like fish like my shin bone in my leg so I have to kind of criss cross my legs like that and twist my torso 180 degrees dislocate my my left arm and shove it under my body and this one's coming up my body wraps around my right arm and I have to have to breathe differently because there's no oxygen in the box and you really can't think about what's going on or you'll freak out you kind of have to put yourself in a different state but I'm in a different state like throughout my entire act like I focus differently then I'm focusing into everyday things put myself in a different frame of mind actually instead of thinking about doing things I watch didn't happen I see see I see my act from the audience's perspective and I watch myself like instead of thinking okay well now I'm gonna dislocate my left arm I watched myself dislocate my left arm and it happens it's hard to believe just how nice Daniel browning Smith was you'd think he'd have grown up in a nice polite white-bread neighborhood with white bread parents but it turns out his life was a lot more Charles Dickens than that I grew up in Mississippi so I was kind of basically a freak and I was more or less a street hustler like I didn't perform like a little act I would make bets with people but that I could do something and after they saw that I'd say oh I could show you some more tricks if you have five dollars whatnot I after after a street performing for a while I've joined the binstock Family Circus and then well that was right when I left home I left home with him I ran away and joined a circus basically I saw them perform and twelve hours later I gave everything he owned away and was in the back of a van and then at Burning Man I was went to Burning Man with a bindles to Family Circus and some more the torture King we met at Burning Man and he was kind of intrigued by me I was intrigued by him a couple of months later we were working together the circle in which these performers travel is very small so if you run into a torture King chances are it's probably Zamora it'd be easy to see how a kid with this ability could use it as nothing more than a bar trick for beer money but what was surprising about Daniel was just how serious he was about his art right now I'm basing my main focuses school here in San Francisco at the San Francisco School of circus art training under master Louie tiller in a different type of body control which I don't have yet and I'm gaining life in the circus can be extremely dangerous for example Daniel's onstage partner was nearly eaten alive by like well the biggest pink steak you've ever seen after after when I was working at the carnival they had a 18-foot albino python and they were gonna feed it a little bunny rabbit and I was kind of walking by the cage and the bunny rabbit kind of looked at me and asked for help so I reached in the cage and took the bunny rabbit out so I kind of made this act up around this rabbit that I never that doesn't do anything [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] I hold the Guinness world record for the fastest time getting into a lot straitjacket which i think is kind of on since I'm the only one in the world that does it [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] I want to be the that the best contortionist in the world that's kind of my main focus in life right now and eventually I want to basically there won't be a contortion trick that I can't do and there'll be tons of tricks that I've either no one else is over this was Daniel's first solo performance and it was great watching him backstage that night I mean he was nervous I mean really nervous sure he's performed a million times all over the world but he didn't know if anyone would come to see just him Daniels Odyssey to conform his body to the limitless possibilities of the mind has only begun what rules of science and nature he may still defy remain to be seen one might be an astrophysicist either but I'm probably gonna wait to do that until I'm around 30 or so the circus used to be the number one form of entertainment in North America so not too long ago it was considered very mainstream entertainment and I think it's coming back that way it's just part of fantasy and reality merging together imagination and what is the finite the world's worst performers are actually quite a tight-knit group most of the sideshow freak performers I've met I attended I do tend to get along with you know there's there's some competition okay I've got this done I can do this act but it's it's generally we're generally pleasant to each other we try to be we're talking and we can talk for hours you know about other performers acts are seeing tricks we're working on so there's a real comfort to meeting other people who do the same stuff reality is malleable and form it into your own hearts desires because I know dreams do come true because mine did they think we're nuts we think they're nuts you know but we all have a good time and we appreciate what each other do sure the world's weirdest performers were weird people but they weren't bad people in fact they were have fun they made us dinner they invited us into their home's they bought a streets at their local bars so it looks like mom was right you can't judge a book by it's cover even if that book is tattoo a spike sticking out of it and comes in a really small box oh don't rip them out lift oh don't rip them out [Applause]

#Weird #Exotic #Historical

I originally planned to make this just a regular video but I figured it would be much more interesting to do it live so that you can actually try man and make suggestions and comment on stuff you know at the same time so the first one that you see on the screen there right now I've made a video but that is one of my subscribers as I blacksmith made one of these and eager OTT headhunting axe and these are pretty weird I mean if you look at the shape of the blade it's rather unusual for an axe the handle seems to be made of a tree branch and you can still see that branch here they left part of that I don't know if that's supposed to function as a guard or if it's aesthetic or whatever but it's pretty interesting you see that quite a lot sawfish sort of maximilian ii which is one of the most ridiculous things that you can see it looks like a fantasy great sword doesn't it looks like something that the Barbarian and Diablo two would wield possibly dual wield because reasons so this is what it's made of it's a soft fish or saw tooth shark ludicrously large and completely unusable this was ceremonial only was at a time when firearms have become very dominant and this is not something that he ran around with that's some Dark Souls shit yeah I have to agree with that and it does look fishy doesn't it Tull hoofers dueling shield I'm not aware of too many other sources that show this I think that was I've seen one other I have never seen any surviving finds I'm not sure there are any but yeah you see the in the sources so pretty strange stuff is essentially it's a it's a long elongated spike shield that would be used either just by itself with two hands as you can see here both of these seem to be judicial dual settings as you can see by the the ring that's set off there and just this one seems to be to the death obviously and this one is not because you know they're they it's it's like a rounded staff end essentially and then there is also it's also shown with swords together yeah I do have to agree with you kind of reminiscent of African shields and I've actually seen African fighting styles where they use smaller shield sometimes that covers the hand and then they would use the staff to parry with and then they use a club in the other hand we've got Fury with his weird shenanigans it looks like a pull hammer because of a pole axe either way so what this thing is it's hollow inside and perforated you can just about see a hint of the holes here there you see this there are five holds visible here so the idea is if you fill this with you know whatever kind of corrosive powder shove it in the dudes face and blind them and then you finish them off so very very devious there is a rope a weighted rope attached to that pull hammer and he's just whipping it around the dudes legs and wants to pull him off and they'll probably stab him with a spike at the end that is pretty weird and I have I've only seen that in Fiori nowhere else so that might have just been a weird idea that he came up with I doubt that he ever did that it might have just been one of those concepts that you know what would be really cool if we put a weighted rope on on our weapon and then try to lasso the dude trying to use the the the poor arm with the rope attached would be a bit of an issue and I think you might as well just have the the rope on your belt or something and just holder of the pull arm and one hand just try to lasso the guy with the other hand and then pull them off and then step in with it with the pole we're gonna move to India the quite or chakram it's really just a ring that is sharpened on the outside you can see here in the center it's thicker here so it's got kind of a spine and then it tapers to the outside rim and turns into an edge and as you can see with this one here some of them were pretty elaborately decorated the really strange thing about this is how they supposedly used it spin it on the finger and then release it that way and throw it like that and even stranger is that turban so they would wear a bunch of these on a turban it wouldn't penetrate as far as a throne spike or a knife I'd say but it should still do pretty well I mean it's like a it's essentially the ring version of a shuriken and I could see that it will probably do the job what I'm wondering is how well would it penetrate thick clothing hey I can kind of see if there's several layers of clothing bunched up that might just bounce off because it it you know distributes the force over a greater area as opposed to the point of a thrown knife for example so that might make it might reduce its effectiveness against yeah if you had a mechanical thrower for those discs York is probably gonna come up with something it slingshot channel have you ever seen this I don't even know what it is if you can't decide if you want to use a sword or a dagger or even dual wield daggers then why not just slap the daggers onto your guard so you can stab them while you stab this is pretty much it and these are articulated can you believe it let me animate it for you how do you think about that nom-nom-nom-nom-nom it's the pac-man sword I have a hard time a very hard time believing that anybody ever used as in real combat very hard time I kind of don't think so but who knows this is a module or Maru and it's yeah it's essentially two animal horns connected and with a buckler attached they also exist with just the horns without the buckler they're also known as fakir horns apparently and yeah that is that is pretty odd sometimes they have these metal spikes attached to the horns sometimes it's just the horns kind of issue with this would be this seems like it would be pretty easy for an opponent to grab and leave her out of your hand and even in some of the European historical manuals you do see that sort of thing where somebody grabs a buckler and wrenches it out of the other guys hand this would make it even easier because then you're not holding onto the outside of the the buckler you're holding on to a lever essentially and you can rotate that crank it pretty hard and wrench it out of the guy's hand you know if not injure the wrist there is the flamberge or Flambeau sometimes also called flama so French name and yeah so it's a very strongly flamed curved blade or a rapier pretty bizarre it seems like the strong wave and the blade would really interfere with how a rapier is used because there's a lot of blade contact in rapier fencing so it's it's a lot of you know fuel the pressure of the opponent and then respond accordingly constrain the blade you turn your edge into there the flat of their blade you push it off-center holding the strong of your blade on the week of their blade and then you thrust in like that that doesn't seem like that would work very well because it's not going to be it's not going to slide smoothly it's just gonna be like that's that's a very professional impression right there but it's gonna be very bumpy and there's gonna be a lot more resistance I can't really imagine that you could use this effectively in rapier fencing except maybe I could kind of see Spanish / Dutch style with this you know Tebow yeah perhaps maybe different style could maybe work but it's it seems very dubious in terms of effectiveness also considering that it doesn't even have a proper point I mean look at how how rounded this is that does not seem like it would make for an effective thrust you think the tip probably broke I'm not sure it looks too rounded for that it should be more you know more of a jagged or square break it wouldn't it wouldn't just be round and unless they filed it down afterwards but deerhorn knives so these are Chinese pretty effective design you could parry pretty well with that I don't see that the wounding potential as high and some other kinds of blades because these are not going to enter quite as far as a longer blade with a top edge here you could slice yes this edge is less accessible because it's relatively shortened it's close to the other one so I mean you could probably cut if you if you hook somebody's arm with it and then hold it forcefully or we get a slicing cut with that but you also of course you don't have the same kind of force that you have when swinging a longer blade like a sword if you look at it more as a fighting knife of sorts then it makes sense I don't know how you pronounce it I it might be something like lungs young or something like that I don't know for sure but yeah this is a really bizarre spear with all these metal branches and leaves and not as soon as the the spearpoint enters the the four branch things catch and stop it from penetrating more than about this far how they poisoned the branches I could see that if you fight a naked dude because if even if they sharpened those little triangles they're not gonna cut anybody who's wearing just clothing so I have a hard time I gotta guess if you jab it in someone's face and even if you missed them and one of the leaves is gonna scrape their face maybe and administer the poison that way I don't know primarily a defensive weapon yeah I mean sure if you don't want to actually kill them then I can kinda see that like entangle them and but so so it's probably more like a a man catcher kind of thing Solomon Islands war clubs some of them are highly decorated they got faces their pain didn't carve and all that these paddle clubs I've seen before a pretty interesting they also come in a variety of different shapes these are made of very strong hardwoods so I would imagine they're pretty effective someday they sometimes come with points at the end there are all paring clubs or paring shields there are sometimes called so these are mainly used for defense apparently to deflect incoming club strikes that totally does not look phallic at all does it mm-hmm and here he's kind of a war pick almost the most highly decorated and delicately carved ones were probably ceremonial and the more utilitarian ones you can imagine where for combat next one is from Indonesia and Malaysia kiniwun or Klingon this you know is not that unusual from or not that different from other blades in that area it's just more extreme basically it's got a very strong curve here and they they split it here and then bended it's much more pronounced on this one you can see it looks like they they split it all the way from where the point is or almost that lacing them curved it inward like this so this makes it look really unusual to our eyes as far as African weapons are concerned you can point out a lot of things that look really weird to us so the cap Inga's is probably not the correct pronunciation is fairly well known of people have probably seen it before so apparently they they use this for throwing but also as a melee weapon there are others that look more like a melee weapon like this here is longer and looks more like something that he would strike with and they come in a wide variety of different shapes so it's essentially just a number of different blades some curves some straight that stick out in various directions and that of course makes sense make it easier to stick although they are oddly round and if they were probably still penetrate but some of them are pretty rounded there also tends to be phallic imagery I mean on this one that's that's very obvious you can either call this a spike or rather tooth club or you know shark tooth sword if you will really nicely made and you know how regular it is and they actually used with the taper of the the wooden core as a tapers in in a profile they actually used smaller teeth vicious the durability of that weapon would be interesting to try out for sure it's something that I would expect requires a lot of maintenance the teeth probably break off or no string rips or anything like that with use I would think it's much better against somebody who is not wearing clothing probably or not much because clothing could really interfere with this especially if it's relatively thick in that climate of course I would they didn't wear thick clothing but if you have like several layers of it that will probably bunch up and catch the teeth and stop it that way this one even has a row of teeth in the center that does look like a pretty secure attachment here so this may actually be reasonably durable yeah i've seen several versions of this sort of wooden rail that you use to shoot much shorter arrows on the same bow and the idea is it would prevent the the enemies from shooting they're picking up the arrows and shooting them back because they are too small too short for their bows and they don't have this device pretty fascinating concept and arguably very useful you know in a siege for example if you shoot a bunch of arrows against the defenders they can't just return Oh return fire return arrow I guess so yeah I hope you enjoyed it I'll look at all these weird things also let me know what you think about that like should I do this sort of thing more often yeah well I just instead of doing a regular video I do it has a live video so you can chime in and all that or is it too long and rambly and all of that let me know about that otherwise yeah I'll see you folks around thanks for watching thanks for all the super shot and everything and have a good one you

Amazing animal footage of the female aphid as it produces hundreds of clone daughters. Fascinating short video from BBC wildlife show ‘Battle of the Sexes in the Animal World’.

however sex provides the opportunity for change and one very formidable insect plays this double card with a plot this green aphid is populating the world with herself she's a virgin and cloning herself she produces a genetically identical daughter every 20 minutes the babies even have babies inside them so the mother aphid nurtures her granddaughter's even before they're born such prolific clones bent solely on breeding are easy pickings for others this solitary wasp is laying her eggs in the aphids body and they are a feast for voracious ladybirds half the clones are born with wings to accelerate their expanding Empire they disperse in the summer air to colonize neighbouring plants during the good times when plants are growing each aphid races to copy herself males have no place and don't exist until later when autumn draws near now the females suddenly switch to producing orange colored babies some will be males she engineers sexes into her offspring because the coming seasons are unpredictable the next summer might be very different from the one in which she was born to copulate the aphids fly off to fruit trees and when they mature the females lose their wings and the males turn as rampant as any Red Deer stag because they have dispersed it's very likely that the mating partners come from different clones having sex with your own clone is the most useless sex imaginable by opting for sex the female aphid is cannily exploiting males from other clones to inject a bit of variety into her line when the future is uncertain her eggs will overwinter and as the conditions next spring are unpredictable she has produced a brood of dormant embryos which all differ from each other some are bound to survive genetic variability is a weapon to battle with environmental changes in a perfect and stable world it's likely all females of all species would prefer to clone but getting rid of males is difficult once they're there

5. The List of Kings
Another mysterious ancient text that’s written in the mesopotamia region is certainly the list of kings. This cuneiform tablet was known as the Sumerian King list dates back to around 2100 BC and is a list of 140 different kings, some which seem to live abnormally long lives. Although the sumerians were advanced for age in which they lived, living to 40 years was a long time back them. However the kings, were direct descendants of the gods and the lists states that some have lived 10’s of thousands of years. One record of one of the first kings named Alalngar states that his reign lasted 36,000 years. What is going on here? Then as you look at the lists of more recent dynasties, the kings’ reigns are a little more normal. Although it’s possible some of these are exaggerated but other historical records seem to have people living this long. What do you believe?

4. Ancient Handbag
For whatever reason, the depiction of gods like the annunaki are holding onto handbags that almost appear to look like a modern day purse of some type, like you see in this photo. But hold on it gets even more mysterious, this image from the olmec kingdom, all the way across the world in modern day mexico, seem to carrying on to a very similar looking object, next to a reptile-serpent looking creature. And then hold on minute, this photo was captured at the first known religious complex, Gobekli Tepe in Turkey displaying 3 handbags at the top, making you wonder if all three of these people from all over the world were seeing the same thing. Some ancients texts describe that the gods, would bring “knowledge” with them in bags. What exactly could be in these bags and what did they mean by knowledge exactly. Let us know what you think is in the bag in the comment section and maybe we’ll feature your answer in an upcoming video.

3. Hanging Gardens of Babylon
One of the most enduring mysteries of Mesopotamia and wonders ofthe ancient world in general is, the hanging gardens of babylon.It would have been located in the city state of Babylon and was most likely constructed by the assyrian king King Nebuchadnezzar, who built it for his wife who was homesick. This illustration portrays King Nebuchadnezzar as powerful ruler with the Hanging Gardens, in a fairly accruate depiction This was one of the Greatest Kings of all time who ruled a confirmed 37 years during a prosperous period of the city state. The hanging gardens would have most likely been a ziggurat type structure, like we saw in Ur, only covered in lavish gardens from all over the known world. There’s no solid archaeological evidence that the gardens ever existed, but it is described in quite detailed accounts and many large aqueducts leading to Babylon seem to point to some evidence there something big going on here.

2. Lost in History
Archaeologists haven’t had a ton of time to analyse historical records of mesopotamia because much of their culture had gone forgotten about until the 19th century, when new discoveries were made. Many kingdom s and empires took over this land of the fertile crescent and there’s possibly still many secrets to uncover about the first civilizations. French and British archaeologists stumbled upon ancient cities and the cuneiform tablets while they were hunting artifacts of the assyrians. No one had any idea until the discovery of Nineveh how advanced the Sumerians truly were with literature and mathematics. What else we don’t know about them still remains a mystery.

1.The Great Flood
One of the most enduring mysteries of ancient Sumeria is indeed the epic of Gilgamesh, but something happened in this story is well known in many different cultures and is even depicted in the Bibl. The story of Noah’s Ark and the Epic of Gilgamesh have striking similarities. The Annuna ki gods council were apparently upset with man’s sins and sent a flood to wipe humans off the planet. While some people find this legend of the great flood to mythological, the epic of gilgamesh is much older and this myth is found all over the world. Could the anunnaki have regretted their decision to help mankind advance and sent an asteroid or some type of super weapon that would flood the entire known world? Whatever you believe to true, one thing is certain; a lot of the great achievements by the ancient mesopotamians have helped changed planet earth and they tend to credit other worldly beings for these accomplishments.

10 Historical Ancient Alien Artifacts

From the ancient tiny space ships, to the bizarre metal books discovered in Israel, these are 10 HISTORICAL Ancient Alien Artifacts !

6. Bizarre Mayan Artifacts
Mexican authorities were quite hesitant to release images of these bizarre artifacts to public after they were discovered 80 years ago. We all know the Mayans seemed to have a close relationship with astronomy and were quite advanced when it came to predicting astronomical events, until they mysterious vanished off the planet. These extremely bizarre images seem to suggest some extraterrestrial contact. Some of the figures have long oval shaped eyes, depict a form of spacecraft and just seem downright chilling. It’s believed that some of these were worn as masks. This photo here seems to display some type of being inside an aircraft. This by no means is the only mysterious

5. Peruvian Alien Skull
In our, signs that aliens could exist video, we showed you guys a mysterious hand that was recently discovered in Peru but there was also a skull that was discovered in the cave. Could this possibly be physical evidence of an extraterrestrial being? It appears to have an elongated skull with a tiny mouth and eyes like something we’ve never seen before. Biologists have determined without a doubt that there is nothing human about this. Many will be reluctant to accept this as any type of proof but when you take a look at the base of the head and it looks like you can see the skin peeling off.

4. Hieroglyphics Helicopter
Located on the ceiling of a 3000 year old temple in the city of Abydos Egypt dedicated to the god Seth, you’ll come across an extremely mysterious hieroglyphic. It appears to depict modern day technology such as a helicopter that you see here and what looks like fighter jets to the right. This has led many to believe that Egypt was possibly visited by time travelers or made contact with race of beings capable of such technology. It’s true that Egyptians used thousands of symbols in hieroglyphics. and this could merely be a coincidence. But you can’t deny the fact that it looks like modern day machinery. You can clearly make out the rotors and the tail fin on the back of the helicopter.

3.20,000 Year Old Nano Spiral
Prospectors were searching for gold in the Ural Mountains of Russia, when they came across an unbelievable discovery. While digging through the soil, they found these nano spirals. Not only was it an extremely bizarre place to find something like this, the nano spirals were made of a rare metal known as Tungsten. Scientists determined it had been there about 20,000 years, due to the amount of soil that was on top of it. You talk to anyone at Nasa, and they’ll tell you Tungsten is important due to its extremely high melting point, higher than any other metal at 6,141 degrees fahrenheit. This metal is tough enough, to where it withstand high temperatures, often associated with space travel. What was this spiral shaped object doing here?

2. The Berlin Gold Hat
This is the best preserved conical, golden hat from the Bronze age. It dates back to 1000 BC. A few were found in Germany and one in France. It seems to be from some type of astronomical cult. Researchers closely studied that hat and realized that they possessed highly complex, mathematical predictions that calculate the cycles of the sun and the moon and seems to act as some type of calendar. This suggests a high level of intelligence, greater than we imagined for people of this time. Some believe that the thin sheet of gold it’s made of, and the conical shape would be able to pick up some type of communication signal. It’s bizarre shape and precise calculations seems to point at making contact with some type of people from out of this world. Or maybe they wore these to keep aliens from reading their minds, who knows.

1.
Metal Books
This is one of the Dead Sea scrolls that were discovered in Israel but with only one slight difference. It’s actually made of copper, where as the others are written on papyrus. The document is 99 percent copper and 1 percent tin. It’s not just in Hebrew but it’s also in Greek and Aramaic. It discussed over 64 locations where treasure is located. No one knows for sure exactly who wrote it. The fact that it’s written in metal like copper metal would almost seem to suggest that it was some type of extraterrestrial book of some sort, according to the guys from ancient aliens. Most of the vocabulary was completely different from what other people saw in other literature at that time. Other strange books like we see here were found in Jordan which talk about powers that seem to be from out of this world. You have to wonder why ancient cultures would begin to write on metal at this time in history around the first century BC.

well folks the world is full of ugliness but people just never tire of staring at it it's the trainwreck effect you just have to look so why not take a glance at some of the ugliest weapons in history now buy ugly I don't mean ineffective or not badass looking you know some of the most imposing and coolest looking things aren't necessarily pretty and obviously this is just my personal opinion I'm not here to trash anyone else's personal sense of aesthetics or cultural heritage or whatever other sentiment and if you are that easily and irrationally offended feel free to share your sweet tears of butthurt in the comments down below I'm sure it'll be entertaining and in order to not make the video twenty hours long I had to limit a little bit so I'm going to be focusing just on European weapons before World War one and no firearms I feel you can make an entire separate video just about ugly firearms in history and I'm also excluding one-of-a-kind pieces like the bizarre sort of maximilian ii with a sawfish blade that is quite hideous but very one-of-a-kind alright let's get started there are a few swords that I find downright ugly there are plenty that I find mildly unappealing or uninteresting boring just not my cup of tea for whatever reason but this one does cross the line just about that's number 10 the speed rune this only just about made the list hence number 10 it's you know not absolutely appalling but it's it's not pretty so this is an 18th century design essentially the battlefield version of a small sword which was the upper class dueling weapon all the time this one people love to hate on because it is impractical for a variety of reasons it's not very good at cutting due to the light narrow blade it's not very good at thrusting you do the flexible blade and all of that but as far as I'm concerned here it's just both looks and I'm generally not a fan of many swords of the era you know being back sword sabers and the thing with this is that it takes the small sword and it is clearly a small sword hilt and then it ruins what elegance the small sword has by putting a beefier blade on it and it doesn't really work for me now as far as a small sword is concerned I'm not a fan of either it's a bit too specialized for me but I can't at least appreciate it there are some pretty fancy elegant looking ones so that's okay but the spurred room just takes that and kind of messes it up here's an example of a later version of this patron this one here is early 19th century and that this one doesn't have a small sword hilt going on anymore but it's a very bland type of blade you're just simple straight very little paper a very simple kind of roundish point and the hilt is also just not really my thing it's it's just too minimalist too simplistic it does have a knuckle guard okay so I've the wave shaped it's just you know already my thing this is highly subjective the next one might be slightly less subjective you'd be the judge of that that's number 9 a certain copper and bronze daggers I say certain ones because his very specific forms that I'm talking about here so the Bronze Age started around five thousand two hundred years ago in the Aegean and roughly a thousand years later in Central Europe and here we've got an example of a calcific copper dagger caliph council ethic let's go to work or Copper Age is a transitional period between the Neolithic and the Bronze Age the antis so early bronze daggers as you may suspect they just weren't very sophisticated to say the least some have this really wide fat leaf blade like this one here and a lot of them are very very crude looking both both the blade and the handle and yeah they're just not really great pieces of art there are some bronze daggers that aren't available like this one here some people may like that I personally cannot stand the combination of that disc pommel and then with the very strongly flared round a guard if you want to call it a guard and then they have the triangular ones which are even worse in my opinion that's a clear nope not my thing at all there's another good or rather bad example the one the center such a spatula of a dagger blade it's it's really unappealing okay it was proved then of all Bronze Age er daggers were ugly far from it this is a replica of the Mycenaean lion hunt dagger which is around 3100 to 3,500 years old and that one is gorgeous no doubt about it alright let's move on to number 8 the sword breaker which is a particular type all paring dagger paring daggers appeared in the late 15 century and then in the 17th century that will often refer to as ma gawsh which is French for left hand and sometimes also called left hand dagger which is not really a good term because a left handed person would use it in the right hand it would be better to call it offhand dagger but parrying diver is a better term my opinion now the sword breaker is a misnomer you just I don't buy for a second that you could actually break a rapier blade with one of those it's you know just with a movement of the wrist you don't have enough strength there and rapier blades are quite sturdy so there's no right way that that would happen so better turn it won't be sword catcher so these have teeth and sometimes with hooks designed to trap an opponent's rapier blade so the thing is I like pairing daggers always have and the teeth are very useful but they just ruin the look I just cannot stand how that looks this one here is also slightly curved but still also mostly great it's such a abomination in my opinion as far as looks now concerned so yeah paring dagger is good but this nope number seven a particular form of the bill which is a type of pole arm now I don't mean this type of bill hook of that one wouldn't win a beauty contest either but it's not not bad I can appreciate it but rather this is an example of what I mean 16th century English bill this one is just kind of crude looking and I don't mean the corrosion that's that's a given but just the shape it's just this kind of rectangle that a spike has been just popped on to and then it was split and drawn up into the spikes and yeah it's not great this one here has a more pronounced hook but still it looks too random kind of and this one again is in fact this is even worse in my opinion it just looks like they've Davers randomly split it and then shaped it haphazardly and let me tell you they don't get any prettier with age they really don't next up number six the volge this is often referred to as an early halberd just like the bill this pole arm comes in different varieties I'm referring to someone 14th and 15th century examples here and yeah same issue as with the bill it's a rectangle with a spike it's just it doesn't really have much going for it it's a very very simple shape one of these simplest shaped weapons you can find and particularly if you look at an overview this here the vuj all the way on the left if you compare that to most of the other pole arms it just loses out aesthetically the others look far better late Albert's can be very elaborate very pretty even the simpler ones can look far better than this number five the bollock dagger also called kidney dagger by prudish historians of Victorian times no that's that's not what it's supposed to be so these were used from the early 14th to about the 17th century I mean maybe if you are a big fan of the male anatomy you might find them more visually appealing I don't to be fair there are some more stylized ones that can be very well made and look fairly good like these here you know that's that's okay but then there are also more anatomical ones which I'm not a fan of and if this makes you angry because it just so happens to be your favorite type of dagger you know you can stick it number four the sheep do sack emphasis on sheep there are fancy do sacks with elaborate complex hills but this is the budget version as cheap and simple as it gets one piece construction just can be hammered out pretty quickly and yeah these were found in parts of what is now Germany the Czech Republic and Hungary yeah not much to say here it's just kind of crude looking and that's the idea supposed to be cheap she even usable that's it this is probably the worst example yeah this is the worst example that I've been able to find it's not pretty for number three I'm breaking my rule here but I wanted to include it anyway that's a strange chopper depicted in the much y'all ski bible I think that's more or less how he pronounced it and it's sometimes also called a go-to knock technically I'm cheating here because you know this is only found in the pictures as far as I know there are no physical finds Hobbit and so questions was it really common or used at all or was it just artistic license who knows there's a single-handed and a 200 version and this essentially looks like a medieval work sword that's that's if if orcs existed in the real live middle ages they would have used this straight up so I actually find it pretty interesting I would love to get one reproduction of one of those to test it out but I cannot argue with the fact that it is ugly there are some reproductions of these available at color Vezina by the way I'll leave a link down below in case you're interested okay then number two the D sound now this like with many other polearms there are plenty of variations and some confusion about the terminology which to be fair is largely artificial because people in historical times weren't that specific really so we have to come up with terms to distinguish one type from the other which they really didn't at the time so these were used from the 11th to the 15th century now personally I wouldn't mind a battle size which is the basis for this you can clearly see the size influence in that but then they put this hook spike thing on and even two of them and that just makes it look goofy just ridiculous in my opinion it just completely ruins the look alright so number one what could be uglier than all of these what about a spiked mace or Club if you have to bludgeon somebody but you just had an argument with your mother-in-law this is what you come up with it's not enough to bludgeon them you have to pierce them at the same time one of the simplest cruelest and most brutal weapons you can find them in one form or another all over the world you know across most time periods quintessential ugly weapon you just pick up a tree branch shape and roughly put some nails through it you're done and even the most well-made versions are essentially still just a spiky stick I mean that's really what it is you take a piece of wood and put some spikes on it doesn't get much more basic and generally I find the more spikes and the longer the spikes the more vaulting it is um here's an example this is technically not Europeans from India but it illustrates the point all right that's it but before you go wash out your eyes with bleach I'll leave my patreon page and a few other links down below in case you want to support the channel and help fund future videos that's about it so thanks for watching and have a good one folks you
