Amazing time lapse of European History.
Places that need to calm the fuck down: Germany
Holy fuck, Germany. Get your shit together.
Meanwhile UK just fucked with France on occasion and kept trying to get Ireland like no one business.
I love how Prussia was there then suddenly merged into Germany and he expanded like nothing happened.
Is no one going to mention Russia or…
No one called Muslim Spain “Muslim Spain” at least call it “al-Andalus”. Otherwise awesome.
What Your Body Does In 30 Seconds.
In case you ever questioned the artistry that goes into the title credits of movies, a video that pays homage to the classic sequences designed by Saul Bass.
Just kind of wow.
Now that you’ve watched that, go to Google and appreciate its Doodle.
Cameron Russell admits she won “a genetic lottery”: she’s tall, pretty and an underwear model. In this talk, she takes a wry look at the industry that had her looking highly seductive at barely 16-years-old and acknowledges the racial privileges that helped paved the way for her career.
A Boy and His Atom is less than 90 seconds long and with its rudimentary animation could be deemed unremarkable, if not for the fact that it’s only visible if you use a microscope that enlarges the action by 100 million times.
Scientists from IBM today unveiled the world’s smallest movie, which was made with one of the tiniest elements in the universe - atoms.
The cartoon was produced at IBM Research’s Almaden Research Center in Northern California, and the Guinness World Records has verified the movie was made using thousands of precisely placed atoms to create nearly 250 frames of stop-motion action.
The atoms were moved with an IBM-invented scanning tunnelling microscope.
White King, Red Rubber, Black Death
Congo: White King, Red Rubber, Black Death describes how King Leopold II of Belgium turned Congo into its private colony between 1885 and 1908.
Under his control, Congo became a gulag labor camp of shocking brutality. Leopold posed as the protector of Africans fleeing Arab slave-traders but, in reality, he carved out an empire based on terror to harvest rubber.
Families were held as hostages, starving to death if the men failed to produce enough wild rubber. Children’s hands were chopped off as punishment for late deliveries.
The Belgian government has denounced this documentary as a “tendentious diatribe” for depicting King Leopold II as the moral forebear of Adolf Hitler, responsible for the death of 10 million people in his rapacious exploitation of the Congo.
Yet, it is agreed today that the first Human Rights movement was spurred by what happened in the Congo.
What the Belgians did in the Congo was forgotten for over 50 years. It’s a shocking, astonishing story. In a way, it’s a horrifying prelude in European history to the Holocaust.
Between 1870 and 1900 the Congo was pillaged – it was valuable as a source of rubber. King Leopold created his own colony in the Congo over which he ruled unchecked.
Peter Bate’s film is a marvelously made reconstruction of those days – it features footage of Congolese villages and explains with actors exactly what happened. It’s really a memorable film – the painfulness of what is described is counterbalanced by the great skill in the storytelling. via
