Top Underdog Payouts in US Sports Betting History

Putting the entire script for history of the entire world I guess into one post

The camera opens on text that says, "Hi." As the NARRATOR continues to speak, we're shown a globe from Google Earth.
NARRATOR: Hi, you're on a rock floating in space. Pretty cool, huh? Some of its water. Fuck it, actually, most of it's water. I can't even get from here to there without buying a boat.
A plane is shown flying from South America to Africa. The plane fades off the screen, and a lone, sad stick figure is shown standing on Africa.
NARRATOR: It's sad. I'm sad. I miss you.
The camera pans left across the globe to show more sad stick figures also standing on South America, North America, and Europe.
CHORUS: How did this happen?
NARRATOR: A long time ago- Actually, never, and also now, nothing is nowhere. When? Never. Makes sense, right? Like I said, it didn't happen. Nothing was never anywhere. That's why it's been everywhere. It's been so everywhere, you don't need a where. You don't even need a when. That's how "every" it gets.
A long pause happens.
NARRATOR: Forget this. I wanna be something. Go somewhere. Do something. I want things to change. I want to invent time and space, and I know it's possible because everything is here, and it probably already happened. I just don't know when to start, and that's exactly where it started.
The sound of VCR fast forwarding plays.
NARRATOR: Ooh, I paused it. I think there's a universe now. What's it made of?
CHORUS: Quarks and stuff!
NARRATOR: Ah, that's a thing, in a place. Don't like it? Try a new place, at a different time. Try to stick together because the world is gonna get bigger and emptier, but it's not empty yet. It's still very full and about a kjghpillion degrees. About no seconds pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The quarks are now happily married and in groups of three, called a proton or a neutron, and there's something else floating around too that wants to join in but can't because it's still too-
An explosion goes off while the screen says, "HOT." 10 minutes pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The protons and neutrons are now happily married to each other. Some of them even doubled up.
About 380,000 years pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The electrons have now joined in. Congratulations! The world is now a bunch of gas in space, but it's getting closer together...
10 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...and it's getting closer together...
500 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...and it's getting closer toget-
An explosion occurs.
CHORUS: It's a star!
NARRATOR: New shit just got made. Some stars burn out and die. Bigger stars burn out and die with passion, and make some brand new, way crazier shit... CHORUS: Space dust!
NARRATOR: ...which allows newer, more interesting stars to be made, and then die, and explode into-
CHORUS: Even crazier space dust!
NARRATOR: ...so now stars have cool stuff around them, like rocks, ice, and funny clouds, which can make some very interesting things, like this ball of flaming rocks for example.
NARRATOR: Holy shit! We just got hit with another ball of flaming rocks, and it kind of made a mess, which is-
CHORUS: Now the Moon!
The year is now -4,000,000,000.
NARRATOR: Weather update, it's raining rocks from outer space.
NARRATOR: Weather update, those rocks might have had water inside them, and now, there's hot steam in the sky.
NARRATOR: Weather update, cooler temperatures today, and the floor is no longer lava.
NARRATOR: Weather update, it's raining.
NARRATOR: Severe flooding alert! The entire world is now an ocean.
NARRATOR: Volcano alert! CHORUS: That's land!
OCEAN: (Mumbles) There's life in the ocean.
NARRATOR: What?
CHORUS: Something's alive in the ocean.
IMMATERIAL OBSERVER (IO): Oh, cool. Like, a plant or an animal?
The camera zooms in on a single-cell organism.
NARRATOR: No, a microscopic speck. It lives at the bottom of the ocean and eats chemical soup which is being served hot and fresh, made from gnarly space ingredients leftover from when it was raining rocks or whatever.
The cell divides.
NARRATOR: Oh, yeah, and it can do that.
Those cells divide many more times.
NARRATOR: It has secret instructions written inside itself telling it how to build another one of itself. So that's pretty nifty, I would say.
NARRATOR: Tired of living at the bottom of the ocean?
CHORUS: Now you can eat sunlight!
The year is now -3,000,000,000.
NARRATOR: Using a revolutionary technique, you can convert sunlight into food.
CHORUS: Taste the sun!
The year is now -2,300,000,000.
NARRATOR: Side effect, now there's oxygen everywhere and the sky is blue. Then the Earth might have been a snowball for a while. Maybe even a couple of times.
The year is now -500,000,000.
NARRATOR: It's a sponge. It's a plant. It's a worm, and some other types of weird, strange water bugs and strange fish.
CHORUS: It's the Cambrian explosion!
IO: Wow, that's animals and stuff.
SEA LIFE: But we're still in the ocean. Hey, can we go on land?
CHORUS, as LAND: No!
SEA LIFE: Why?
CHORUS, as LAND: The sun is a deadly lazer!
SEA LIFE: Oh, okay.
CHORUS: Not anymore, there's a blanket.
NARRATOR: Now the animals can go on land. Come on animals, let's go on land.
FISH: Nope, can't walk yet. And there's no food yet, so I don't care.
100 million years pass.
LAND: Okay, will you learn to walk if there's plants up here?
SOME BUGS AND FISH: Maybe
NARRATOR: ...said some bugs... and fish.
The year is now -380,000,000. FISH grunts because it is struggling to get on land, for it has no legs. 5 million years pass. The year is now -375,000,000. FISH now has legs, for it has evolved into an AMPHIBIAN.
AMPHIBIAN: Okay, so I can go on land, but I have to go back in the water to-
CHORUS: Have babies!
The word "idea" flashes on to the screen.
NARRATOR: Learn to use an egg.
AMPHIBIAN: I was already doing that.
NARRATOR: Use a stronger egg. Put water in it. Have a baby, on land, in an egg. Water is in the egg. Baby, in the egg, in the water, in the egg.
The year is -312,000,000.
AMPHIBIAN OFFSPRING: Works for me.
CHORUS: Bye bye, ocean!
50 million years pass.
NARRATOR: And now everything's huge. Including bugs. Wanna see a map of the land?
IO: Sure.
The year is now -252,000,000. A globe is presented. The camera starts to pan around it when a large explosion happens, destroying a land mass on the globe the size of a continent. Text pops onto the screen reading "PERMIAN EXTINCTION." The Permian Extinction has occurred.
NARRATOR: Oh fuck, now everything's dead. Just kidding, here are the survivors.
The thrinaxodon, lystrosaurus, and proterosuchus are shown.
NARRATOR: Keep your eye on this one...
The proterosuchus is circled. 75 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...'cause it's about to become the dinosaurs. Here's another map of the land.
The globe is shown again. It does not yet look like the Earth we know today; many of the continents are in pieces or out of place.
NARRATOR: Yeah, it broke apart. Don't worry about that. It does that all the time.
The year is now -66,000,000.
NARRATOR: Here comes a meteor.
A meteor comes into frame and hits the globe near what is today called Central America.
CHORUS: And the dinosaurs are gone!
NARRATOR: It's mammal time! Here come the mammals; look at those breasts.
The year is now -15,000,000.
NARRATOR: Now, they're gonna dominate the world, and one of them just learned how to grab stuff, and walk.
The year is now -4,000,000. A transition from one of human's older ancestors to one of human's younger ancestors is shown.
NARRATOR: No, like, walk like that, and grab stuff at the same time.
The year is now -3,000,000.
NARRATOR: And bang rocks together to make pointed rocks.
IO: Ouch.
The year is now -1,500,000.
NARRATOR: And set things on fire.
IO: Yeouch.
The year is now -200,000.
NARRATOR: And make crazy sounds with their voice.
CAVEMAN: Gneurshk.
NARRATOR: Which can mean different things.
Via the CAVEMAN's thought bubble, "Gnerushk," is shown to mean, "Hi," "Bye," and, "Can you hand me that rock over there?"
CHORUS: That's a human person!
NARRATOR: And now they're everywhere, almost.
Text pops on to the screen, above the landmass that is today called North America. It reads "not here yet." Humans have not migrated there yet. The year is now -20,000. Text pops on to the screen, between what is today the American state of Alaska and the Russian autonomous okrug (district) of Chukotka. The text reads "ice age." The ice age is occurring, creating a land bridge between the two landmasses.
CHORUS: Ice age!
HUMANS: What? You can walk over here? Cool!
The year is now -10,000.
CHORUS: Not anymore.
HUMANS: Well, I guess we're stuck here now.
NARRATOR: Let's review. There's people on the planet, and they're chasing their food.
HUMAN: Fuck it, time to plant some grass. Look at this. I control the food now. Now, everyone will want to be my friend and live near me. Let's all build houses, except mine is bigger because I own the food. This is great. I wonder if anyone else is doing this.
The year is now -5000.
NARRATOR: Tired of using rocks for everything? Use metal! It's underground.
NARRATOR: Better farming was just invented in a sweet dank valley right in between these two rivers, and the animals are helping.
A sheep baas in the background.
CHORUS: Guess what happens next!
NARRATOR: More food, and more people who came to buy the food, and you need people to help make the food and keep track of the sales, and now, you need houses for people to live in and people to make the houses, and now, there's more people, and they invent things which makes things better, and more people come, and there's more farming and more people to make more things for more people, and now, there's business, money, writing, laws, power.
CHORUS: Society!
NARRATOR: Coming soon to a dank river valley near you. Meanwhile, out in the middle of nowhere, the horse is probably being tamed.
DISTRAUGHT HUMAN: Why is all my metal so lame and lumpy?
NARRATOR: Tired of using lame, sad metal?
The year is now -3300.
NARRATOR: Introducing-
CHORUS: Bronze!
NARRATOR: Made from special ingredient tin from the far lands of Tin Land... I don't know, my dealer won't tell me where he gets it. Also, guess what?
CHORUS: Egypt!
The year is now -2000.
NARRATOR: Meanwhile, out in the middle of nowhere, they figured out how to put wheels on a horse. Now, we're getting somewhere. Also-
CHORUS: China!
NARRATOR: And did I mention-
CHORUS: Indus River Valley Civilization!
A "society count" comes on screen. It lists the four civilizations just named (including Mesopotamia, the "sweet dank valley right in between... two rivers"), as the counter counts up from one to four. It pauses for a moment before ticking up to five. A fifth civilization appears on the list. The camera pans right across the globe to what is modern day Peru.
CHORUS: Norte Chico!
NARRATOR: The Middle East is getting more complicated. Maybe because it's in the middle of the East.
The year is now -1600.
PEOPLE WITH HORSES: Knock, knock. Er... clop clop.
NARRATOR: It's the people with the horses, and they made an empire, and then everyone else copied their horses.
CHORUS: Greeks!
NARRATOR: Ah, look, it must be the Greeks. Or, a beta version of the Greeks.
Text pops up on screen, reading "mycenaean greeks." These "beta version... Greeks" are the Mycenaean Greeks.
NARRATOR: Let's check in with the Indus River Valley Civilization - they're gone. Guess who's not gone?
CHORUS: China!
The year is now -1200.
CHORUS: New arrivals in India! Maybe it's those horse people I was talking about, or their cousins, or something... And they wrote some hymns and mantras and stuff!
NARRATOR: You could make a religion out of this.
The year is now -1150.
NARRATOR: There's the Bronze Age collapse.
CHORUS: Now, the Phoenicians can get down to business!
HUMANS: (Offscreen) Also, can we switch to a metal that's a little easier to find?
Bronze switches to iron.
HUMANS: (Offscreen) Thanks.
NARRATOR: Look who came back to Israel - it's the twelve tribes of Israel!
CHORUS: And they believe in God!
NARRATOR: Just one though; he's got like a ten step program.
NARRATOR: Here's some huge heads. Must be the Olmecs.
The year is now -800.
NARRATOR: The Phoenicians make some colonies. The Greeks copy their idea and make some colonies. The Phoenicians made a colony so big it makes colonies.
The year is now -671.
NARRATOR: Here comes the Assyrian Empire.
The year is now -600.
NARRATOR: Nevermind, it's the Babylo-
The year is now -580.

The year is now -500.
CHORUS: It's the Persian Empire!
IO: Wow, that's big.
NARRATOR: Ah, the Buddha was just enlightened!
IO: Who's the Buddha?
NARRATOR: This guy, who sat under a tree for so long that he figured out how to ignore the fact that we're all dying. You could make a religion out of this.
The year is now -475.
NARRATOR: Oops, China just broke, but while it was breaking, Confucius was figuring out how to have good morals.
The year is now -400.
NARRATOR: Ah, the Greeks just had the idea of thinking about stuff...
The year is now -330.
NARRATOR: ...and right over here, Alexander just had the idea of conquering the entire Persian empire. It's a great idea. He was... Great, and now he's dead. Hopefully, the rest of the gang will be able to share the empire evenly between them.
The year is now -305.
CHANDRAGUPTA: Knock knock.
NARRATOR: It's Chandragupta. He says-
CHANDRAGUPTA: Get the hell out of here. Will you get the hell out of here if I give you five hundred elephants? Okay, thanks. Bye.
CHORUS: Time to conquer all of India!
NARRATOR: Er-
CHORUS: Most of India!
IO: But what about this part?
NARRATOR: That's the Tamil kings. No one conquers the Tamil kings.
IO: Who are the Tamil kings?
CHORUS: Merchants, probably... And they've got spices!
TAMIL KINGS: Who would like to buy the spices?
ARABIANS: Me!
NARRATOR: ...said the Arabians, swiftly buying it and selling it to the rest of the world.
The year is now -221.
NARRATOR: Hey, China put itself back together again, with good morals as their main philosophy! Actually, they have three main philosophies.
Confucianism, Taoism, and legalism appear with the corresponding messages under: having good morals, go with the flow, and "fuck you obey the law". The land northwest of Qin China, which is roughly modern-day Mongolia, is circled.
NARRATOR: Out here, the horse nomads run wild and free, and they would like to ransack your city.
The horse nomads repeatedly bump into China with the coin sound effect from Super Mario playing each time they do so. The camera pans left on the globe back to the Ancient Greek Empire.
NARRATOR: Let's check the Greekification levels of the Greekified kingdoms. Greekification overload!
PARTHIANS: Bye.
NARRATOR: ...said the Parthians.
JEWS: Bye.
NARRATOR: ...said the Jews.
PARTHIANS: Hi!

The year is now 1 CE.
ROMANS: Heyyyyyyyy...

NARRATOR: ...said the Jews, who were starting to get tired of people invading their homeland.
The year is now 30 CE.
JESUS CHRIST: Hi, everything's great.
NARRATOR: ...said some guy, who seems to be getting very popular, and is then arrested and killed for being too popular, which only makes him more popular. You could make a religion out of this.
NARRATOR: Want silk? Now, you can buy it from China. They just made a-
CHORUS: Brand new road to the world!
China conquers Vietnam.
CHORUS: Or you can get there on water!
INDIA: Sick! New trade routes.
NARRATOR: ...said India, accidentally spreading their religion to the entire southeast.
Funan is highlighted.
NARRATOR: Hm, that's a good place for an epic trading kingdom.
The sound of a zooming car plays.
NARRATOR: There goes Buddhism, traveling up the silk road.
The year is now 220.
NARRATOR: I wonder if it'll reach China before it collapses again.
The year is now 225.
NARRATOR: Remember the Persian Empire?
PERSIANS: Yep.

The year is now 280.
CHORUS: China is whole again!
The year is now 320.

ROME: No.
The year is now 330.
CONSTANTINE: Actually, okay, sure.

The year is now 400.
CHORUS: It's the golden age of India!

CHORUS: Barbarians!
NARRATOR: What's a barbarian?
ROMANS: Non-Romans.
NARRATOR: ...said the Romans, being invaded by non-Romans.
The year is now 476.
NARRATOR: R.I.P. Roman Empire. Er, actually just half of it; the other half is just fine, but it's not in Rome anymore, so let's give it a new name.
CHORUS: The Mayans have figured out the stars!
NARRATOR: Oh, and here's a huge city, population: everyone.
The year is now 576.
NARRATOR: The Göktürks have taken over the entire Eurasian steppe. Great job, Göktürks. How's India? Broken. How's China?
CHORUS: Back together.
NARRATOR: How's those trading kingdoms?
CHORUS: Bigger, and there's more of them.
NARRATOR: Korea has three kingdoms. Japan has a kingdom; it's the sunrise kingdom.
An intermission occurs. The year is now 610.
NARRATOR: Deep in the Arabian desert, on the top of a mountain, the real god whispers in Muhammad's ear, so he goes down to the cube where everyone worships gods, and he tells them their gods are all fake...
The year is now 622.
NARRATOR: ...and everyone got so mad at him that he had to leave town and go to a different town. You can make a religion out of this...
The year is now 650.
NARRATOR: ...and maybe conquer the world as well. The Roman Empire is long gone, but somehow, the Pope is still the Pope! Plus, there's-
CHORUS: New kingdoms all over Europe!
NARRATOR: I wonder if there's room for Moors.
The year is now 786.
NARRATOR: Here's all the wisdom, in a house: it's the Baghdad House of Wisdom, just in time for the-
CHORUS: Islamic Golden Age!
SWAHILI: Let's bring stuff to the coast, and sell it, and become the Swahili on the Swahili Coast.
NARRATOR: ...said the Swahili on the Swahili Coast.
NARRATOR: Remember this tiny space you have to go through to get from here to there? Someone owns that now.
NARRATOR: Wanna get enlightened in the middle of nowhere?
NARRATOR: The Franks have the biggest kingdom in Europe, and the Pope is so proud that he invites the king over for Christmas.
The year is now 800.
POPE: Surprise! You're the new Roman Emperor!
NARRATOR: ...said the Pope, pretending to still be part of the Roman Empire. Then, the Franks broke their kingdom into what will later be called France and Not France. The Northerners (or just Norse, if you don't have much time) are exploring. They go north, from the north, to the northern north, and they find some land, two types of land, and they name them accordingly.
Large text comes on screen reading, "prankd."
NARRATOR: They also invade some other places and get called many names, such as Vikings.
The year is now 882.
NARRATOR: There's the Rus, the Kievan Rus.
IO: Are they Vikings?
KIEVAN RUS: I don't think so.
NARRATOR: ...said the Kievan Rus.
IO: Okay, fair enough.
NARRATOR: The Pope is ready to make some more emperors of the Roman Empire, the Holy Roman Empire. It's actually Germany, but don't worry about it! New kingdoms!

BYZANTINE EMPIRE: Aah!
NARRATOR: ...said the Byzantine Empire, who's getting so small it almost doesn't exist anymore.
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: We need help!
NARRATOR: They need help, so they call the Pope.
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: Hey, Pope, can you help us get rid of the Seljuks? Maybe take back the Holy Land on the way? Come on, I know you want to take back the Holy Land.
POPE: Yes, I do actually want to do that. Let's do a Crusade.
The year is now 1099.
CHORUS: Crusade!
NARRATOR: They did many crusades, some of which almost didn't fail, but at the least the Italians got some sweet trade deals.
The year is now 1100.
NARRATOR: Goodbye, Mayans.
CHORUS: Hello, Toltecs!
NARRATOR: Goodbye, Toltecs.

NARRATOR: Guess who's here? Khmer!
IO: Where?
NARRATOR: Here, and Pegan is there! Vietnam unconquered itself, Korea just became itself...
The year is now 1192.
NARRATOR: ...and Japan is so addicted to art that the military might have to take over the government. China just invented bombs and typing...
The year is now 1230. It rapidly starts to count upward as the Mongols spin and fly all over north Asia. The year ends on 1259.
NARRATOR: ...and the Mongols just invaded most of the universe. (sarcastically) Nice going, Genghis! I bet that will last a long time.
The Mongol Empire that was just formed shatters.
NARRATOR: Some of the Islamic Turks were unaffected by the Mongol invasions because they were busy invading India.
Bright, happy text comes on the screen reading, "tonga time."
NARRATOR: Is it Tonga time?
TONGAN: I think it's Tonga time!
Text comes on screen reading, "colonizing the pacific ocean..." The Tu'i Tonga Empire forms.
NARRATOR: I just found out where the Swahili gets all their gold!
It is shown that the gold comes from the Great Zimbabwe, as the Great Zimbabwe is highlighted.
NARRATOR: Look at this "chad" (it means lake). There's an empire there, right in the middle of-
CHORUS: Africa!
The year is now 1324.
NARRATOR: The King of Mali is so rich, he's going on tour to let everyone know.
NORTH AFRICA and THE MIDDLE EAST: Wow, that guy's rich.
NARRATOR: ...everyone said. The Christians are doing a great job reconquering Iberia, which will soon be called Spain and Not-Spain.
IBERIAN PENINSULA: Please remain Christian. We will check in later to see if you're still Christian when you least expect.
The year is now 1350.
NARRATOR: Whoops! Half of Europe just died!
CHORUS: Ming!
NARRATOR: China's back, yay!
The year is now 1400.
Hey Khmer, time to share! New kingdoms here and there. Oh, look who controls all the islands. It's the Mahajapit-
The buzz of an "incorrect" buzzer buzzes.
NARRATOR: Majahapit-
Buzzes.
NARRATOR: Mapajahit-
Buzzes.
NARRATOR: Mahapajit-
Buzzes.
NARRATOR: Mapajahit-
Buzzes.
NARRATOR: Ma-ja-pa-hit?
The ring of a "correct" bell rings. The year is now 1450.
NARRATOR: Oh, Italy's really rich. Time for them to care a lot about art and the ancient classics. It's kinda like a re-birth.
The text on the screen reads "renaissance".
NARRATOR: Here's a printer, let's make books!
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: So you think you can conquer the Byzantine Empire?
OTTOMAN TURKS: Yep.
NARRATOR: ...said the Ottoman Turks. Nice job, Ottoman Turks!
The year is now 1453.
NARRATOR: Oops, you missed a spot. Don't forget to ban Europe from the Indian spice trade.
PORTUGAL: What? That's bullshit!
NARRATOR: ...said Portugal, spiceless.
CHORUS, as PORTUGAL: Well, I guess we'll have to find another way to India!
CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS: Wait!
NARRATOR: ...said Christopher Columbus, probably smoking crack.
COLUMBUS: If the world is round, let's go this way to India!
PORTUGAL: Nah, don't worry, we already got this
NARRATOR: ...said Portugal. So Chris goes to Spain.
COLUMBUS: Hey, Spain, wanna hire me to find India by going around the back of the world?
SPAIN: No.
COLUMBUS: Please?
SPAIN: No.
QUEEN OF SPAIN: Wtf

COLUMBUS: Please?
SPAIN: No.
COLUMBUS: Please?
SPAIN: Okay.
The year is now 1492.

The year is now 1494.
SPAIN and PORTUGAL: Let's draw a line to decide who gets which half of the world.
NARRATOR: The Aztec and Inca Empires are off to a great start. I wonder if they know that Europe just discovered their continent?

NARRATOR: Move over, Lithuania! Here comes Moscow. Ivan wants to make Russia great again. Move over, Timurids; maybe go invade India or something.
The year is now 1501.
NARRATOR: Persia just made Persia Persian again. Let's make it the other kind of Islam, the one where we thought the first guy should have been the other guy.
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH: Hey, Christians! Do you sin? Now you can buy your way out of Hell.
MARTIN LUTHER: That's bullshit, this whole thing is bullshit, that's a scam, fuck the church. Here's 95 reasons why.
NARRATOR: ...said Martin Luther, in his new book which might have accidentally started the Protestant Reformation.
SULEIMAN THE MAGNIFICENT: You know what would be magnificent?
NARRATOR: ...said Suleiman, wearing an onion hat.
The year is now 1530.
SULEIMAN: What if the Ottoman Empire was really big, which it is now?
The year is now 1556.
IVAN THE TERRIBLE: What if Russia was big?
NARRATOR: ...said Ivan, trying not to be terrible.
NARRATOR: Portugal had a dream that they controlled the entire Indian Ocean, including the Spice Trade... and then that dream was real. And Spain realized that this is not India, but they pillaged it anyway!
ENGLAND and FRANCE: Damn.
NARRATOR: ...said England and France.
ENGLAND and FRANCE: We gotta start pillaging some stuff.
NARRATOR: Then, the Dutch revolt, and all the hipsters move to Amsterdam.
The year is now 1600.
AMSTERDAM: Damn.
NARRATOR: ...said Amsterdam.
AMSTERDAM: We gotta start pillaging some stuff.
ENGLAND, FRANCE, and THE DUTCH: Question 1: Can you get to India through North America? No, but at least there's beaver. Question 2: Steal the Spice Trade.
NARRATOR: That's not a question, but the Dutch did it anyway.
CHORUS: Sugar!
The year is now 1640.
NARRATOR: Guess where all the sugar is made. In Brazil-
THE DUTCH: Stolen!
NARRATOR: -In the Caribbean, and it's so goddamn profitable that you might forget to not do slavery. The next thing on Russia's to-do-list is to get bigger.
The year is now 1754.
NARRATOR: Britain and France are having a friendly discussion about who should control the entire world, more specifically Ohio. Then it escalates into a seven year discussion, giving Prussia a chance to show Austria who's boss.
IO: But what about Britain and France? Did they figure out who's boss?
NARRATOR: Yes, they did! It's Britain. Guess who's broke. Also Britain, so they start taxing the Hell out of America.
The year is now 1776.
AMERICA: Fuck you.
NARRATOR: ...says America, declaring their independence and fighting for it, and France helps them win. Now, France is broke...
The year is now 1788.
NARRATOR: ...and Britain will have to send their prisoners to a different continent.
IO: Wait, if France is broke, why do the king and queen still wear such fancy dresses?
The year is now 1794.
ROBESPIERRE: Let's overthrow the palace and cut all their heads off!
NARRATOR: ...says Robespierre, cutting everybody's head off until someone eventually got mad and cut his head off.
IO: You could make a religi-
NARRATOR: No, don't. Haiti is starting to like the idea of a revolution...
The year is now 1791.
NARRATOR: ...especially the slaves, who free themselves by killing their masters.
TOUSSAINT L'OUVERTURE: Why didn't we think of this before?
IO: Wait, who's in charge of France now?
The year is now 1804.
CHORUS, as NAPOLEON: Me!
NARRATOR: ...said Napoleon, trying to take over Europe. Luckily, they banished him to an island-
CHORUS: But he came back!
NARRATOR: Luckily, they banished him to another island.
A burst of horns play.
NARRATOR: There goes Latin America, becoming independent in the Latin American Wars of Independence.
They last from the year 1812 to about 1830.
NARRATOR: Britain just figured out how to turn steam into power, so now, they can make-
CHORUS: Many different types of machines, and factories with machines in them, so they can make a lot of products real fast.
NARRATOR: Then, they invent some trains and conquer India and maybe put some trains there.
BRITAIN: Hey, China!
NARRATOR: ...said Britain.
BRITAIN: Buy stuff from us!
CHINA: Nah, dude, we already got everything.
NARRATOR: ...says China, so Britain tried to get them addicted to opium, which worked, actually, but then, China made it illegal...
The year is now 1839.
NARRATOR: ...and dumped it all into the sea, so Britain threw a hissy fit and made them open up five cities and give them an island. Britain and Russia are playing a game where they try and stop each other from conquering Afghanistan. Also, the-
CHORUS: Sultan of Oman lives in Zanzibar now.
NARRATOR: That's just where he lives.
The year is now 1857.
NARRATOR: India just had a revolution, and they would like to govern themselves now.
BRITAIN: Nope.
NARRATOR: ...said Britain, governing them even harder than before.
The screen reads, "HI I JUST SENT YOU A MESSAGE THRU A WIRE," while the Morse Code for "SEXLOL" plays in the background.
CHORUS: Technology is about to go crazy!
The year is now 1863.
NARRATOR: The United States finally figured out whether slavery is good or bad.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: It's bad.
NARRATOR: ...they decided, and then, they continued manifesting their destiny, which is to kill the rest of the natives and take their land and maybe kick out the Mexicans too.
The year is now 1884.
EUROPE: I know! Let's rape Africa.
NARRATOR: ...said Europe, scrambling to see who could rape it the fastest. (They never got Ethiopia.) Britain and France are still hungry! (They never got Thailand.) The United States ran out of destiny to manifest, so they're looking for more.
CHORUS: Hawaii and Cuba!
IO: Wait! Spain controls Cuba!
UNITED STATES: Well, blame something on them, and go to war.
AMERICANS: What should we blame on Spain?
The U.S.S. Maine explodes in the Gulf of Mexico.
UNITED STATES: Let's blame the Maine on Spain
NARRATOR: ...so they blame the Maine on Spain.
The year is now 1898.
AMERICANS: Now, we're in business!
NARRATOR: To celebrate, they kick Panama out of Panama and make a canal, connecting the two oceans.
The year is now 1908.
NARRATOR: Britain just found oil in the Middle East. (It makes cars go.)
The year is now 1911.
NARRATOR: China is so tired of being bossed around that they delete their old government and make a new, stronger government, which is accidentally weaker and controlled by a guy from the previous government. Europe hasn't had a war since the last war...
The year is now 1914.
NARRATOR: ...so they start World War I. Look at those guns! It's gonna be a "Great War" - so great we won't need a second one. After it's over, they blame Germany.
The year is now 1917.
NARRATOR: Russia went on strike, and the workers overthrew the government. Now, everyone's paycheck is the same.
The year is now 1922.
CHORUS: Communism, in the Soviet Union!
NARRATOR: The Arabs revolt...
The year is now 1917.
NARRATOR: ...and Britain helps.
BRITAIN: (Offscreen) Now, the Ottoman Empire is gone,
The year is now 1922.
BRITAIN: (Offscreen) So we can give the-
CHORUS: Jewish people a place to live!
NARRATOR: Hopefully, the Arabs won't mind.
SYKES and PICOT: Let's cut the cake!
NARRATOR: ...said Sykes and Picot, cutting up the remains of the Not-So-Ottoman-Anymore Empire.
The year is now 1923.
CHORUS: Except Turkey! Turkey makes a brand new Turkey!
NARRATOR: ...and then, the Saudis conquer Arabia. It just seemed like the right thing to do.
A phone rings.
IO: Hello?
THE 1920s: Yes, it's the 1920s calling. Let's get in a car and drive to a party and listen to jazz on the radio and go to the movies. The economy is great, and it will probably be great forever- just kidding!
A slide whistle with decreasing pitch briefly plays. The year is now 1933.
NARRATOR: Germany is back, featuring Hitler, the angry mustache model, and he's mad at the Jews for existing. Japan is finally conquering the East, and they're so excited...
The year is now 1937.
NARRATOR: ...they rape Nanking way too hard. They should probably just deny it.
The year is now 1945.
NARRATOR: Hitler's out of control, so the international community tackles him and tries to explain why killing all the Jews is a bad idea. But he kills himself before they could explain it to him.
CHORUS: That's World War II!
NARRATOR: Bonus Round!
Air horns momentarily play in the background.
NARRATOR: (Like Announcer from Mortal Kombat) Pacific Showdown: United States versus Japan! Fight!
A drop-down menu that reads "weapon select" pops up, and the U.S. cursor moves down from "boat" to "plane" to "extinction ball." It is picked, dropped on Japan, and an explosion results. The year is now 1945.
NARRATOR: (Like Announcer from Mortal Kombat) Finish him!
Another one is dropped, and another explosion follows.
NARRATOR: Let's unite all the nations and have some-
CHORUS: World peace!
NARRATOR: Seems legit.
GANDHI: Hi, I'm Gandhi, and if Britain doesn't get the Hell out of India, I'm gonna starve myself in public.
The year is now 1947. Britain leaves.
GANDHI: Wow, that worked?
NARRATOR: Bonus! Now, there's Pakistan. Actually, two Pakistans; one of them can be Bangladesh later. The Jews and the Arabs finally figured out which one of them should live in the Holy Land.
JEWS and ARABS: Me!
NARRATOR: ...they both said at the same time.
The year is now 1947.
UNITED NATIONS: Let's divide up the land so everyone's happy.
CHORUS: Sike! They both get angrier.
NARRATOR: Look out, China!
The year is now 1949.
NARRATOR: There's a new China in China! What's on the menu?
PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC of CHINA: Communism!
REPUBLIC of CHINA: No, thanks.
NARRATOR: ...said the other China, escaping to an island. I wonder which one is the real China?
The year is now 1950.
NARRATOR: There's the Korean War: Korea versus Korea. Nobody wins and then it's on pause forever. Let's meet the sponsors! Oh, it's the two global superpowers. They're having a friendly debate over which economic system is good and which one is an evil virus of Satan. And they both have atom bombs.
NARRATOR: (With an echo) FIGHT!
NARRATOR: Wait, no, that would be the end of the world. Let's just keep it cool and spy on each other instead, and make sure we have enough atom bombs.
The year is now 1957.
SOVIET UNION: I'll race you to space.
The year is now 1969. An American rocket ship is shown to land on the moon.
SOVIET UNION and UNITED STATES: Now, let's make some more countries fight themselves.
NARRATOR: Europe is tired of pillaging other continents, and the continents they were pillaging are tired of being pillaged. So here's a new map, with new countries! Now, you can't tell who they're being pillaged by.
The year is now 1963.
NARRATOR: The United States finally decided whether racism is good or bad. They decided it's bad, and the world agrees. South Africa might need another minute to think about it. Let's check the world population.
A graph is shown, displaying a spike upward in population that jumped from "a billion" at the beginning of the 1800s to "way more" around the beginning of the 2000s.
IO: Whoa... Okay.
NARRATOR: Technology is better too; that might keep happening. The Soviet Union decides to relax a little...
The year is now 1991.
NARRATOR: ...and accidentally falls apart. Europe makes a union...
The year is now 1999.
NARRATOR: ...so now, they can all use the same money, except Britain 'cause they don't feel like it. Let's check the mail! Surprise! It's on the computer.
The year is now 2001.
NARRATOR: Whoops, someone just attacked America. I bet they'll remember that. Phone call! Surprise! It's in your pocket. Wanna learn everything? Surprise! It's on the computer. Now, your phone's a computer, which is in your pocket.
A chart of the 2008 economic recession is shown.
NARRATOR: Whoops, the economy just crashed. Don't worry, the big banks won't fail because they're not supposed to. Surprise! Flying robots, with bombs. Wanna print a brain? Some people have no friends, some people have no food, the globe is warming-
CHORUS: And the ocean is full of plastic!
EVERYBODY: Let's save the planet!
NARRATOR: ...said everybody, not knowing how.
The year is now 2028.
THING INVENTOR INVENTOR: Let's invent a thing inventor.
NARRATOR: ...said the thing inventor inventor, after being invented by a thing inventor. That's pretty cool. By the way, where the Hell are we?
Text comes on screen that reads, "Thanks for watching history. I hope I mentioned everything."

World of history

The camera opens on text that says, "Hi." As the NARRATOR continues to speak, we're shown a globe from Google Earth.
NARRATOR: Hi, you're on a rock floating in space. Pretty cool, huh? Some of it's water. Fuck it, actually, most of it's water. I can't even get from here to there without buying a boat.
A plane is shown flying from South America to Africa. The plane fades off the screen, and a lone, sad stick figure is shown standing on Africa.
NARRATOR: It's sad. I'm sad. I miss you.
The camera pans left across the globe to show more sad stick figures also standing on South America, North America, and Europe.
CHORUS: How did this happen?
NARRATOR: A long time ago- Actually, never, and also now, nothing is nowhere. When? Never. Makes sense, right? Like I said, it didn't happen. Nothing was never anywhere. That's why it's been everywhere. It's been so everywhere, you don't need a where. You don't even need a when. That's how "every" it gets.
A long pause happens.
NARRATOR: Forget this. I wanna be something. Go somewhere. Do something. I want things to change. I want to invent time and space, and I know it's possible because everything is here, and it probably already happened. I just don't know when to start, and that's exactly where it started.
The sound of VCR fast forwarding plays.
NARRATOR: Ooh, I paused it. I think there's a universe now. What's it made of?
CHORUS: Quarks and stuff!
NARRATOR: Ah, that's a thing, in a place. Don't like it? Try a new place, at a different time. Try to stick together because the world is gonna get bigger and emptier, but it's not empty yet. It's still very full and about a kjghpillion degrees.
About no seconds pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The quarks are now happily married and in groups of three, called a proton or a neutron, and there's something else floating around too that wants to join in but can't because it's still too-
An explosion goes off while the screen says, "HOT." 10 minutes pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The protons and neutrons are now happily married to each other. Some of them even doubled up.
About 380,000 years pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The electrons have now joined in. Congratulations! The world is now a bunch of gas in space, but it's getting closer together...
10 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...and it's getting closer together...
500 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...and it's getting closer toget-
An explosion occurs.
CHORUS: It's a star!
NARRATOR: New shit just got made. Some stars burn out and die. Bigger stars burn out and die with passion, and make some brand new, way crazier shit...
CHORUS: Space dust!
NARRATOR: ...which allows newer, more interesting stars to be made, and then die, and explode into-
CHORUS: Even crazier space dust!
NARRATOR: ...so now stars have cool stuff around them, like rocks, ice, and funny clouds, which can make some very interesting things, like this ball of flaming rocks for example.
NARRATOR: Holy shit! We just got hit with another ball of flaming rocks, and it kind of made a mess, which is-
CHORUS: Now the Moon!
The year is now -4,000,000,000.
NARRATOR: Weather update, it's raining rocks from outer space.
NARRATOR: Weather update, those rocks might have had water inside them, and now, there's hot steam in the sky.
NARRATOR: Weather update, cooler temperatures today, and the floor is no longer lava.
NARRATOR: Weather update, it's raining.
NARRATOR: Severe flooding alert! The entire world is now an ocean.
NARRATOR: Volcano alert!
CHORUS: That's land!
OCEAN: (Mumbles) There's life in the ocean.
NARRATOR: What?
CHORUS: Something's alive in the ocean.
IMMATERIAL OBSERVER (IO): Oh, cool. Like, a plant or an animal?
The camera zooms in on a single-cell organism.
NARRATOR: No, a microscopic speck. It lives at the bottom of the ocean and eats chemical soup which is being served hot and fresh, made from gnarly space ingredients leftover from when it was raining rocks or whatever.
The cell divides.
NARRATOR: Oh, yeah, and it can do that.
Those cells divide many more times.
NARRATOR: It has secret instructions written inside itself telling it how to build another one of itself. So that's pretty nifty, I would say.
NARRATOR: Tired of living at the bottom of the ocean?
CHORUS: Now you can eat sunlight!
The year is now -3,000,000,000.
NARRATOR: Using a revolutionary technique, you can convert sunlight into food.
CHORUS: Taste the sun!
The year is now -2,300,000,000.
NARRATOR: Side effect, now there's oxygen everywhere and the sky is blue. Then the Earth might have been a snowball for a while. Maybe even a couple of times.
The year is now -500,000,000.
NARRATOR: It's a sponge. It's a plant. It's a worm, and some other types of weird, strange water bugs and strange fish.
CHORUS: It's the Cambrian explosion!
IO: Wow, that's animals and stuff.
SEA LIFE: But we're still in the ocean. Hey, can we go on land?
CHORUS, as LAND: No!
SEA LIFE: Why?
CHORUS, as LAND: The sun is a deadly lazer!
SEA LIFE: Oh, okay.
CHORUS: Not anymore, there's a blanket.
NARRATOR: Now the animals can go on land. Come on animals, let's go on land.
FISH: Nope, can't walk yet. And there's no food yet, so I don't care.
100 million years pass.
LAND: Okay, will you learn to walk if there's plants up here?
SOME BUGS AND FISH: Maybe
NARRATOR: ...said some bugs... and fish.
The year is now -380,000,000. FISH grunts because it is struggling to get on land, for it has no legs. 5 million years pass. The year is now -375,000,000. FISH now has legs, for it has evolved into an AMPHIBIAN.
AMPHIBIAN: Okay, so I can go on land, but I have to go back in the water to-
CHORUS: Have babies!
The word "idea" flashes on to the screen.
NARRATOR: Learn to use an egg.
AMPHIBIAN: I was already doing that.
NARRATOR: Use a stronger egg. Put water in it. Have a baby, on land, in an egg. Water is in the egg. Baby, in the egg, in the water, in the egg.
The year is -312,000,000.
AMPHIBIAN OFFSPRING: Works for me.
CHORUS: Bye bye, ocean!
50 million years pass.
NARRATOR: And now everything's huge. Including bugs. Wanna see a map of the land?
IO: Sure.
The year is now -252,000,000. A globe is presented. The camera starts to pan around it when a large explosion happens, destroying a land mass on the globe the size of a continent. Text pops onto the screen reading "PERMIAN EXTINCTION." The Permian Extinction has occurred.
NARRATOR: Oh fuck, now everything's dead. Just kidding, here are the survivors.
The thrinaxodon, lystrosaurus, and proterosuchus are shown.
NARRATOR: Keep your eye on this one...
The proterosuchus is circled. 75 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...'cause it's about to become the dinosaurs. Here's another map of the land.
The globe is shown again. It does not yet look like the Earth we know today; many of the continents are in pieces or out of place.
NARRATOR: Yeah, it broke apart. Don't worry about that. It does that all the time.
The year is now -66,000,000.
NARRATOR: Here comes a meteor.
A meteor comes into frame and hits the globe near what is today called Central America.
CHORUS: And the dinosaurs are gone!
NARRATOR: It's mammal time! Here come the mammals; look at those breasts.
The year is now -15,000,000.
NARRATOR: Now, they're gonna dominate the world, and one of them just learned how to grab stuff, and walk.
The year is now -4,000,000. A transition from one of human's older ancestors to one of human's younger ancestors is shown.
NARRATOR: No, like, walk like that, and grab stuff at the same time.
The year is now -3,000,000.
NARRATOR: And bang rocks together to make pointed rocks.
IO: Ouch.
The year is now -1,500,000.
NARRATOR: And set things on fire.
IO: Yeouch.
The year is now -200,000.
NARRATOR: And make crazy sounds with their voice.
CAVEMAN: Gneurshk.
NARRATOR: Which can mean different things.
Via the CAVEMAN's thought bubble, "Gnerushk," is shown to mean, "Hi," "Bye," and, "Can you hand me that rock over there?"
CHORUS: That's a human person!
NARRATOR: And now they're everywhere, almost.
Text pops on to the screen, above the landmass that is today called North America. It reads "not here yet." Humans have not migrated there yet. The year is now -20,000. Text pops on to the screen, between what is today the American state of Alaska and the Russian autonomous okrug (district) of Chukotka. The text reads "ice age." The ice age is occurring, creating a land bridge between the two landmasses.
CHORUS: Ice age!
HUMANS: What? You can walk over here? Cool!
The year is now -10,000.
CHORUS: Not anymore.
HUMANS: Well, I guess we're stuck here now.
NARRATOR: Let's review. There's people on the planet, and they're chasing their food.
HUMAN: Fuck it, time to plant some grass. Look at this. I control the food now. Now, everyone will want to be my friend and live near me. Let's all build houses, except mine is bigger because I own the food. This is great. I wonder if anyone else is doing this.
The year is now -5000.
NARRATOR: Tired of using rocks for everything? Use metal! It's underground.
NARRATOR: Better farming was just invented in a sweet dank valley right in between these two rivers, and the animals are helping.
A sheep baas in the background.
CHORUS: Guess what happens next!
NARRATOR: More food, and more people who came to buy the food, and you need people to help make the food and keep track of the sales, and now, you need houses for people to live in and people to make the houses, and now, there's more people, and they invent things which makes things better, and more people come, and there's more farming and more people to make more things for more people, and now, there's business, money, writing, laws, power.
CHORUS: Society!
NARRATOR: Coming soon to a dank river valley near you. Meanwhile, out in the middle of nowhere, the horse is probably being tamed.
DISTRAUGHT HUMAN: Why is all my metal so lame and lumpy?
NARRATOR: Tired of using lame, sad metal?
The year is now -3300.
NARRATOR: Introducing-
CHORUS: Bronze!
NARRATOR: Made from special ingredient tin from the far lands of Tin Land... I don't know, my dealer won't tell me where he gets it. Also, guess what?
CHORUS: Egypt!
The year is now -2000.
NARRATOR: Meanwhile, out in the middle of nowhere, they figured out how to put wheels on a horse. Now, we're getting somewhere. Also-
CHORUS: China!
NARRATOR: And did I mention-
CHORUS: Indus River Valley Civilization!
A "society count" comes on screen. It lists the four civilizations just named (including Mesopotamia, the "sweet dank valley right in between... two rivers"), as the counter counts up from one to four. It pauses for a moment before ticking up to five. A fifth civilization appears on the list. The camera pans right across the globe to what is modern day Peru.
CHORUS: Norte Chico!
NARRATOR: The Middle East is getting more complicated. Maybe because it's in the middle of the East.
The year is now -1600.
PEOPLE WITH HORSES: Knock, knock. Er... clop clop.
NARRATOR: It's the people with the horses, and they made an empire, and then everyone else copied their horses.
CHORUS: Greeks!
NARRATOR: Ah, look, it must be the Greeks. Or, a beta version of the Greeks.
Text pops up on screen, reading "mycenaean greeks." These "beta version... Greeks" are the Mycenaean Greeks.
NARRATOR: Let's check in with the Indus River Valley Civilization - they're gone. Guess who's not gone?
CHORUS: China!
The year is now -1200.
CHORUS: New arrivals in India! Maybe it's those horse people I was talking about, or their cousins, or something... And they wrote some hymns and mantras and stuff!
NARRATOR: You could make a religion out of this.
The year is now -1150.
NARRATOR: There's the Bronze Age collapse.
CHORUS: Now, the Phoenicians can get down to business!
HUMANS: (Offscreen) Also, can we switch to a metal that's a little easier to find?
Bronze switches to iron.
HUMANS: (Offscreen) Thanks.
NARRATOR: Look who came back to Israel - it's the twelve tribes of Israel!
CHORUS: And they believe in God!
NARRATOR: Just one though; he's got like a ten step program.
NARRATOR: Here's some huge heads. Must be the Olmecs.
The year is now -800.
NARRATOR: The Phoenicians make some colonies. The Greeks copy their idea and make some colonies. The Phoenicians made a colony so big it makes colonies.
The year is now -671.
NARRATOR: Here comes the Assyrian Empire.
The year is now -600.
NARRATOR: Nevermind, it's the Babylo-
The year is now -580.
NARRATOR: Media-
The year is now -500.
CHORUS: It's the Persian Empire!
IO: Wow, that's big.
NARRATOR: Ah, the Buddha was just enlightened!
IO: Who's the Buddha?
NARRATOR: This guy, who sat under a tree for so long that he figured out how to ignore the fact that we're all dying. You could make a religion out of this.
The year is now -475.
NARRATOR: Oops, China just broke, but while it was breaking, Confucius was figuring out how to have good morals.
The year is now -400.
NARRATOR: Ah, the Greeks just had the idea of thinking about stuff...
The year is now -330.
NARRATOR: ...and right over here, Alexander just had the idea of conquering the entire Persian empire. It's a great idea. He was... Great, and now he's dead. Hopefully, the rest of the gang will be able to share the empire evenly between them.
The year is now -305.
CHANDRAGUPTA: Knock knock.
NARRATOR: It's Chandragupta. He says-
CHANDRAGUPTA: Get the hell out of here. Will you get the hell out of here if I give you five hundred elephants? Okay, thanks. Bye.
CHORUS: Time to conquer all of India!
NARRATOR: Er-
CHORUS: Most of India!
IO: But what about this part?
NARRATOR: That's the Tamil kings. No one conquers the Tamil kings.
IO: Who are the Tamil kings?
CHORUS: Merchants, probably... And they've got spices!
TAMIL KINGS: Who would like to buy the spices?
ARABIANS: Me!
NARRATOR: ...said the Arabians, swiftly buying it and selling it to the rest of the world.
The year is now -221.
NARRATOR: Hey, China put itself back together again, with good morals as their main philosophy! Actually, they have three main philosophies.
Confucianism, Taoism, and legalism appear with the corresponding messages under: having good morals, go with the flow, and "fuck you obey the law". The land northwest of Qin China, which is roughly modern-day Mongolia, is circled.
NARRATOR: Out here, the horse nomads run wild and free, and they would like to ransack your city.
The horse nomads repeatedly bump into China with the coin sound effect from Super Mario playing each time they do so. The camera pans left on the globe back to the Ancient Greek Empire.
NARRATOR: Let's check the Greekification levels of the Greekified kingdoms. Greekification overload!
PARTHIANS: Bye.
NARRATOR: ...said the Parthians.
JEWS: Bye.
NARRATOR: ...said the Jews.
PARTHIANS: Hi!
NARRATOR: ...said the Parthians, taking over the entire place.
The year is now 1 CE.
ROMANS: Heyyyyyyyy...
NARRATOR: ...said the Romans, eating the entire Mediterranean for breakfast.
JEWS: Thanks for invading our homeland.
NARRATOR: ...said the Jews, who were starting to get tired of people invading their homeland.
The year is now 30 CE.
JESUS CHRIST: Hi, everything's great.
NARRATOR: ...said some guy, who seems to be getting very popular, and is then arrested and killed for being too popular, which only makes him more popular. You could make a religion out of this.
NARRATOR: Want silk? Now, you can buy it from China. They just made a-
CHORUS: Brand new road to the world!
China conquers Vietnam.
CHORUS: Or you can get there on water!
INDIA: Sick! New trade routes.
NARRATOR: ...said India, accidentally spreading their religion to the entire southeast.
Funan is highlighted.
NARRATOR: Hm, that's a good place for an epic trading kingdom.
The sound of a zooming car plays.
NARRATOR: There goes Buddhism, traveling up the silk road.
The year is now 220.
NARRATOR: I wonder if it'll reach China before it collapses again.
The year is now 225.
NARRATOR: Remember the Persian Empire?
PERSIANS: Yep.
NARRATOR: ...said the Persians, making a new one. Axum is getting so powerful they would like to build a long stick. Has anyone populated Madagascar yet?
BANTU and MALAY: Let's do it together!
The year is now 280.
CHORUS: China is whole again!
The year is now 320.
CHORUS: Then it broke again.
NARRATOR: Still can't cross the Sahara Desert? Try camels!
CHORUS, as GHANA EMPIRE: Hell yeah! Now we've got business!
NARRATOR: ...said the Ghana Empire, selling lots of gold and slaves.
ROMAN CHRISTIAN: Hi, I live in the Roman Empire, and I was wondering-
CHORUS, as ROMAN CHRISTIAN: Is loving Jesus legal yet?
ROME: No.
The year is now 330.
CONSTANTINE: Actually, okay, sure.
NARRATOR: ...said Constantine, moving the capital way over here to be closer to his-
CHORUS: Main rival!
CONSTANTINE: Don't worry about Rome; it won't fall.
The year is now 400.
CHORUS: It's the golden age of India!
NARRATOR: There's the Gupta Empire, not Chandragupta, just Gupta... First name Chandra... The First. Guess who's in Rome.
CHORUS: Barbarians!
NARRATOR: What's a barbarian?
ROMANS: Non-Romans.
NARRATOR: ...said the Romans, being invaded by non-Romans.
The year is now 476.
NARRATOR: R.I.P. Roman Empire. Er, actually just half of it; the other half is just fine, but it's not in Rome anymore, so let's give it a new name.
CHORUS: The Mayans have figured out the stars!
NARRATOR: Oh, and here's a huge city, population: everyone.
The year is now 576.
NARRATOR: The Göktürks have taken over the entire Eurasian steppe. Great job, Göktürks. How's India? Broken. How's China?
CHORUS: Back together.
NARRATOR: How's those trading kingdoms?
CHORUS: Bigger, and there's more of them.
NARRATOR: Korea has three kingdoms. Japan has a kingdom; it's the sunrise kingdom.
An intermission occurs. The year is now 610.
NARRATOR: Deep in the Arabian desert, on the top of a mountain, the real god whispers in Muhammad's ear, so he goes down to the cube where everyone worships gods, and he tells them their gods are all fake...
The year is now 622.
NARRATOR: ...and everyone got so mad at him that he had to leave town and go to a different town. You can make a religion out of this...
The year is now 650.
NARRATOR: ...and maybe conquer the world as well. The Roman Empire is long gone, but somehow, the Pope is still the Pope! Plus, there's-
CHORUS: New kingdoms all over Europe!
NARRATOR: I wonder if there's room for Moors.

CHORUS: Islamic Golden Age!
SWAHILI: Let's bring stuff to the coast, and sell it, and become the Swahili on the Swahili Coast.
NARRATOR: ...said the Swahili on the Swahili Coast.
NARRATOR: Remember this tiny space you have to go through to get from here to there? Someone owns that now.
NARRATOR: Wanna get enlightened in the middle of nowhere?
NARRATOR: The Franks have the biggest kingdom in Europe, and the Pope is so proud that he invites the king over for Christmas.
The year is now 800.
POPE: Surprise! You're the new Roman Emperor!
NARRATOR: ...said the Pope, pretending to still be part of the Roman Empire. Then, the Franks broke their kingdom into what will later be called France and Not France. The Northerners (or just Norse, if you don't have much time) are exploring. They go north, from the north, to the northern north, and they find some land, two types of land, and they name them accordingly.
Large text comes on screen reading, "prankd."
NARRATOR: They also invade some other places and get called many names, such as Vikings.
The year is now 882.
NARRATOR: There's the Rus, the Kievan Rus.
IO: Are they Vikings?
KIEVAN RUS: I don't think so.
NARRATOR: ...said the Kievan Rus.
IO: Okay, fair enough.
NARRATOR: The Pope is ready to make some more emperors of the Roman Empire, the Holy Roman Empire. It's actually Germany, but don't worry about it! New kingdoms!
DISTORTED VOICE: CHRISTIANIZE ALL THE KINGDOMS!
NARRATOR: Which brand would you like?
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH: Mine's better.
EASTERN ORTHODOX CHURCH: Mine's better.
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH: Mine's better.
The year is now 1066.
WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR: Time to conquer England.
NARRATOR: ...said William.
The year is now 1071.
NARRATOR: It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the Seljuk Turks!
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: Aah!
NARRATOR: ...said the Byzantine Empire, who's getting so small it almost doesn't exist anymore.
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: We need help!
NARRATOR: They need help, so they call the Pope.
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: Hey, Pope, can you help us get rid of the Seljuks? Maybe take back the Holy Land on the way? Come on, I know you want to take back the Holy Land.
POPE: Yes, I do actually want to do that. Let's do a Crusade.
The year is now 1099.
CHORUS: Crusade!
NARRATOR: They did many crusades, some of which almost didn't fail, but at the least the Italians got some sweet trade deals.
The year is now 1100.
NARRATOR: Goodbye, Mayans.
CHORUS: Hello, Toltecs!
NARRATOR: Goodbye, Toltecs.

The year is now 1150.
NARRATOR: Guess who's here? Khmer!
IO: Where?
NARRATOR: Here, and Pegan is there! Vietnam unconquered itself, Korea just became itself...
The year is now 1192.
NARRATOR: ...and Japan is so addicted to art that the military might have to take over the government. China just invented bombs and typing...
The year is now 1230. It rapidly starts to count upward as the Mongols spin and fly all over north Asia. The year ends on 1259.
NARRATOR: ...and the Mongols just invaded most of the universe. (sarcastically) Nice going, Genghis! I bet that will last a long time.
The Mongol Empire that was just formed shatters.
NARRATOR: Some of the Islamic Turks were unaffected by the Mongol invasions because they were busy invading India.
Bright, happy text comes on the screen reading, "tonga time."
NARRATOR: Is it Tonga time?
TONGAN: I think it's Tonga time!
Text comes on screen reading, "colonizing the pacific ocean..." The Tu'i Tonga Empire forms.
NARRATOR: I just found out where the Swahili gets all their gold!
It is shown that the gold comes from the Great Zimbabwe, as the Great Zimbabwe is highlighted.
NARRATOR: Look at this "chad" (it means lake). There's an empire there, right in the middle of-
CHORUS: Africa!
The year is now 1324.
NARRATOR: The King of Mali is so rich, he's going on tour to let everyone know.
NORTH AFRICA and THE MIDDLE EAST: Wow, that guy's rich.
NARRATOR: ...everyone said. The Christians are doing a great job reconquering Iberia, which will soon be called Spain and Not-Spain.
IBERIAN PENINSULA: Please remain Christian. We will check in later to see if you're still Christian when you least expect.
The year is now 1350.
NARRATOR: Whoops! Half of Europe just died!
CHORUS: Ming!
NARRATOR: China's back, yay!
The year is now 1400.
Hey Khmer, time to share! New kingdoms here and there. Oh, look who controls all the islands. It's the Mahajapit-
The buzz of an "incorrect" buzzer buzzes.
NARRATOR: Majahapit-
Buzzes.
NARRATOR: Mapajahit-
Buzzes.
NARRATOR: Mahapajit-
Buzzes.
NARRATOR: Mapajahit-
Buzzes.
NARRATOR: Ma-ja-pa-hit?
The ring of a "correct" bell rings. The year is now 1450.
NARRATOR: Oh, Italy's really rich. Time for them to care a lot about art and the ancient classics. It's kinda like a re-birth.
The text on the screen reads "renaissance".
NARRATOR: Here's a printer, let's make books!
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: So you think you can conquer the Byzantine Empire?
OTTOMAN TURKS: Yep.
NARRATOR: ...said the Ottoman Turks. Nice job, Ottoman Turks!
The year is now 1453.
NARRATOR: Oops, you missed a spot. Don't forget to ban Europe from the Indian spice trade.
PORTUGAL: What? That's bullshit!
NARRATOR: ...said Portugal, spiceless.
CHORUS, as PORTUGAL: Well, I guess we'll have to find another way to India!
CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS: Wait!
NARRATOR: ...said Christopher Columbus, probably smoking crack.
COLUMBUS: If the world is round, let's go this way to India!
PORTUGAL: Nah, don't worry, we already got this
NARRATOR: ...said Portugal. So Chris goes to Spain.
COLUMBUS: Hey, Spain, wanna hire me to find India by going around the back of the world?
SPAIN: No.
COLUMBUS: Please?
SPAIN: No.
COLUMBUS: Please?
SPAIN: No.
COLUMBUS: Please?
SPAIN: Okay.
The year is now 1492.
NARRATOR: So he sails into the ocean and discovers... More ocean... And then discovers the Indies and Japan.
The year is now 1494.
SPAIN and PORTUGAL: Let's draw a line to decide who gets which half of the world.
NARRATOR: The Aztec and Inca Empires are off to a great start. I wonder if they know that Europe just discovered their continent?
NARRATOR: The Hapsburgs are marrying into so many royal families that they might have to start marrying each other.
The year is now 1500.
NARRATOR: Move over, Lithuania! Here comes Moscow. Ivan wants to make Russia great again. Move over, Timurids; maybe go invade India or something.
The year is now 1501.
NARRATOR: Persia just made Persia Persian again. Let's make it the other kind of Islam, the one where we thought the first guy should have been the other guy.
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH: Hey, Christians! Do you sin? Now you can buy your way out of Hell.
MARTIN LUTHER: That's bullshit, this whole thing is bullshit, that's a scam, fuck the church. Here's 95 reasons why.
NARRATOR: ...said Martin Luther, in his new book which might have accidentally started the Protestant Reformation.
SULEIMAN THE MAGNIFICENT: You know what would be magnificent?
NARRATOR: ...said Suleiman, wearing an onion hat.
The year is now 1530.
SULEIMAN: What if the Ottoman Empire was really big, which it is now?
The year is now 1556.
IVAN THE TERRIBLE: What if Russia was big?
NARRATOR: ...said Ivan, trying not to be terrible.
NARRATOR: Portugal had a dream that they controlled the entire Indian Ocean, including the Spice Trade... and then that dream was real. And Spain realized that this is not India, but they pillaged it anyway!
ENGLAND and FRANCE: Damn.
NARRATOR: ...said England and France.
ENGLAND and FRANCE: We gotta start pillaging some stuff.
NARRATOR: Then, the Dutch revolt, and all the hipsters move to Amsterdam.
The year is now 1600.
AMSTERDAM: Damn.
NARRATOR: ...said Amsterdam.
AMSTERDAM: We gotta start pillaging some stuff.
ENGLAND, FRANCE, and THE DUTCH: Question 1: Can you get to India through North America? No, but at least there's beaver. Question 2: Steal the Spice Trade.
NARRATOR: That's not a question, but the Dutch did it anyway.
CHORUS: Sugar!
The year is now 1640.
NARRATOR: Guess where all the sugar is made. In Brazil-
THE DUTCH: Stolen!
NARRATOR: -In the Caribbean, and it's so goddamn profitable that you might forget to not do slavery. The next thing on Russia's to-do-list is to get bigger.
The year is now 1754.
NARRATOR: Britain and France are having a friendly discussion about who should control the entire world, more specifically Ohio. Then it escalates into a seven year discussion, giving Prussia a chance to show Austria who's boss.
IO: But what about Britain and France? Did they figure out who's boss?
NARRATOR: Yes, they did! It's Britain. Guess who's broke. Also Britain, so they start taxing the Hell out of America.
The year is now 1776.
AMERICA: Fuck you.
NARRATOR: ...says America, declaring their independence and fighting for it, and France helps them win. Now, France is broke...
The year is now 1788.
NARRATOR: ...and Britain will have to send their prisoners to a different continent.
IO: Wait, if France is broke, why do the king and queen still wear such fancy dresses?
The year is now 1794.
ROBESPIERRE: Let's overthrow the palace and cut all their heads off!
NARRATOR: ...says Robespierre, cutting everybody's head off until someone eventually got mad and cut his head off.
IO: You could make a religi-
NARRATOR: No, don't. Haiti is starting to like the idea of a revolution...
The year is now 1791.
NARRATOR: ...especially the slaves, who free themselves by killing their masters.
TOUSSAINT L'OUVERTURE: Why didn't we think of this before?
IO: Wait, who's in charge of France now?
The year is now 1804.
CHORUS, as NAPOLEON: Me!
NARRATOR: ...said Napoleon, trying to take over Europe. Luckily, they banished him to an island-
CHORUS: But he came back!
NARRATOR: Luckily, they banished him to another island.
A burst of horns play.
NARRATOR: There goes Latin America, becoming independent in the Latin American Wars of Independence.
They last from the year 1812 to about 1830.
NARRATOR: Britain just figured out how to turn steam into power, so now, they can make-
CHORUS: Many different types of machines, and factories with machines in them, so they can make a lot of products real fast.
NARRATOR: Then, they invent some trains and conquer India and maybe put some trains there.
BRITAIN: Hey, China!
NARRATOR: ...said Britain.
BRITAIN: Buy stuff from us!
CHINA: Nah, dude, we already got everything.
NARRATOR: ...says China, so Britain tried to get them addicted to opium, which worked, actually, but then, China made it illegal...
The year is now 1839.
NARRATOR: ...and dumped it all into the sea, so Britain threw a hissy fit and made them open up five cities and give them an island. Britain and Russia are playing a game where they try and stop each other from conquering Afghanistan. Also, the-
CHORUS: Sultan of Oman lives in Zanzibar now.
NARRATOR: That's just where he lives.
The year is now 1857.
NARRATOR: India just had a revolution, and they would like to govern themselves now.
BRITAIN: Nope.

CHORUS: Technology is about to go crazy!
The year is now 1863.
NARRATOR: The United States finally figured out whether slavery is good or bad.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: It's bad.
NARRATOR: ...they decided, and then, they continued manifesting their destiny, which is to kill the rest of the natives and take their land and maybe kick out the Mexicans too.
The year is now 1884.
EUROPE: I know! Let's rape Africa.
NARRATOR: ...said Europe, scrambling to see who could rape it the fastest. (They never got Ethiopia.) Britain and France are still hungry! (They never got Thailand.) The United States ran out of destiny to manifest, so they're looking for more.
CHORUS: Hawaii and Cuba!
IO: Wait! Spain controls Cuba!
UNITED STATES: Well, blame something on them, and go to war.
AMERICANS: What should we blame on Spain?
The U.S.S. Maine explodes in the Gulf of Mexico.
UNITED STATES: Let's blame the Maine on Spain
NARRATOR: ...so they blame the Maine on Spain.
The year is now 1898.
AMERICANS: Now, we're in business!
NARRATOR: To celebrate, they kick Panama out of Panama and make a canal, connecting the two oceans.
The year is now 1908.
NARRATOR: Britain just found oil in the Middle East. (It makes cars go.)
The year is now 1911.
NARRATOR: China is so tired of being bossed around that they delete their old government and make a new, stronger government, which is accidentally weaker and controlled by a guy from the previous government. Europe hasn't had a war since the last war...
The year is now 1914.
NARRATOR: ...so they start World War I. Look at those guns! It's gonna be a "Great War" - so great we won't need a second one. After it's over, they blame Germany.
The year is now 1917.
NARRATOR: Russia went on strike, and the workers overthrew the government. Now, everyone's paycheck is the same.
The year is now 1922.
CHORUS: Communism, in the Soviet Union!

The year is now 1917.
NARRATOR: ...and Britain helps.
BRITAIN: (Offscreen) Now, the Ottoman Empire is gone,
The year is now 1922.
BRITAIN: (Offscreen) So we can give the-
CHORUS: Jewish people a place to live!
NARRATOR: Hopefully, the Arabs won't mind.
SYKES and PICOT: Let's cut the cake!
NARRATOR: ...said Sykes and Picot, cutting up the remains of the Not-So-Ottoman-Anymore Empire.
The year is now 1923.
CHORUS: Except Turkey! Turkey makes a brand new Turkey!
NARRATOR: ...and then, the Saudis conquer Arabia. It just seemed like the right thing to do.
A phone rings.
IO: Hello?
THE 1920s: Yes, it's the 1920s calling. Let's get in a car and drive to a party and listen to jazz on the radio and go to the movies. The economy is great, and it will probably be great forever- just kidding!
A slide whistle with decreasing pitch briefly plays. The year is now 1933.
NARRATOR: Germany is back, featuring Hitler, the angry mustache model, and he's mad at the Jews for existing. Japan is finally conquering the East, and they're so excited...
The year is now 1937.
NARRATOR: ...they rape Nanking way too hard. They should probably just deny it.
The year is now 1945.
NARRATOR: Hitler's out of control, so the international community tackles him and tries to explain why killing all the Jews is a bad idea. But he kills himself before they could explain it to him.
CHORUS: That's World War II!
NARRATOR: Bonus Round!
Air horns momentarily play in the background.
NARRATOR: (Like Announcer from Mortal Kombat) Pacific Showdown: United States versus Japan! Fight!
A drop-down menu that reads "weapon select" pops up, and the U.S. cursor moves down from "boat" to "plane" to "extinction ball." It is picked, dropped on Japan, and an explosion results. The year is now 1945.
NARRATOR: (Like Announcer from Mortal Kombat) Finish him!
Another one is dropped, and another explosion follows.
NARRATOR: Let's unite all the nations and have some-
CHORUS: World peace!
NARRATOR: Seems legit.
GANDHI: Hi, I'm Gandhi, and if Britain doesn't get the Hell out of India, I'm gonna starve myself in public.
The year is now 1947. Britain leaves.
GANDHI: Wow, that worked?
NARRATOR: Bonus! Now, there's Pakistan. Actually, two Pakistans; one of them can be Bangladesh later. The Jews and the Arabs finally figured out which one of them should live in the Holy Land.
JEWS and ARABS: Me!
NARRATOR: ...they both said at the same time.
The year is now 1947.
UNITED NATIONS: Let's divide up the land so everyone's happy.
CHORUS: Sike! They both get angrier.
NARRATOR: Look out, China!
The year is now 1949.
NARRATOR: There's a new China in China! What's on the menu?
PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC of CHINA: Communism!
REPUBLIC of CHINA: No, thanks.
NARRATOR: ...said the other China, escaping to an island. I wonder which one is the real China?
The year is now 1950.
NARRATOR: There's the Korean War: Korea versus Korea. Nobody wins and then it's on pause forever. Let's meet the sponsors! Oh, it's the two global superpowers. They're having a friendly debate over which economic system is good and which one is an evil virus of Satan. And they both have atom bombs.
NARRATOR: (With an echo) FIGHT!
NARRATOR: Wait, no, that would be the end of the world. Let's just keep it cool and spy on each other instead, and make sure we have enough atom bombs.
The year is now 1957.
SOVIET UNION: I'll race you to space.
The year is now 1969. An American rocket ship is shown to land on the moon.
SOVIET UNION and UNITED STATES: Now, let's make some more countries fight themselves.
NARRATOR: Europe is tired of pillaging other continents, and the continents they were pillaging are tired of being pillaged. So here's a new map, with new countries! Now, you can't tell who they're being pillaged by.
The year is now 1963.
NARRATOR: The United States finally decided whether racism is good or bad. They decided it's bad, and the world agrees. South Africa might need another minute to think about it. Let's check the world population.
A graph is shown, displaying a spike upward in population that jumped from "a billion" at the beginning of the 1800s to "way more" around the beginning of the 2000s.
IO: Whoa... Okay.
NARRATOR: Technology is better too; that might keep happening. The Soviet Union decides to relax a little...
The year is now 1991.
NARRATOR: ...and accidentally falls apart. Europe makes a union...
The year is now 1999.
NARRATOR: ...so now, they can all use the same money, except Britain 'cause they don't feel like it. Let's check the mail! Surprise! It's on the computer.
The year is now 2001.
NARRATOR: Whoops, someone just attacked America. I bet they'll remember that. Phone call! Surprise! It's in your pocket. Wanna learn everything? Surprise! It's on the computer. Now, your phone's a computer, which is in your pocket.
A chart of the 2008 economic recession is shown.
NARRATOR: Whoops, the economy just crashed. Don't worry, the big banks won't fail because they're not supposed to. Surprise! Flying robots, with bombs. Wanna print a brain? Some people have no friends, some people have no food, the globe is warming-
CHORUS: And the ocean is full of plastic!
EVERYBODY: Let's save the planet!
NARRATOR: ...said everybody, not knowing how.
The year is now 2028.
THING INVENTOR INVENTOR: Let's invent a thing inventor.
NARRATOR: ...said the thing inventor inventor, after being invented by a thing inventor. That's pretty cool. By the way, where the Hell are we?
Text comes on screen that reads, "Thanks for watching history. I hope I mentioned everything."
submitted by Civplayer92 to DecreasinglyVerbose [link] [comments]

I was told avoid Bill Wurtz. So here's history of the entire world, I guess

The camera opens on text that says, "Hi." As the NARRATOR continues to speak, we're shown a globe from Google Earth.
NARRATOR: Hi, you're on a rock floating in space. Pretty cool, huh? Some of it's water. Fuck it, actually, most of it's water. I can't even get from here to there without buying a boat.
A plane is shown flying from South America to Africa. The plane fades off the screen, and a lone, sad stick figure is shown standing on Africa.
NARRATOR: It's sad. I'm sad. I miss you.
The camera pans left across the globe to show more sad stick figures also standing on South America, North America, and Europe.
CHORUS: How did this happen?
NARRATOR: A long time ago- Actually, never, and also now, nothing is nowhere. When? Never. Makes sense, right? Like I said, it didn't happen. Nothing was never anywhere. That's why it's been everywhere. It's been so everywhere, you don't need a where. You don't even need a when. That's how "every" it gets.
A long pause happens.
NARRATOR: Forget this. I wanna be something. Go somewhere. Do something. I want things to change. I want to invent time and space, and I know it's possible because everything is here, and it probably already happened. I just don't know when to start, and that's exactly where it started.
The sound of VCR fast forwarding plays.
NARRATOR: Ooh, I paused it. I think there's a universe now. What's it made of?
CHORUS: Quarks and stuff!
NARRATOR: Ah, that's a thing, in a place. Don't like it? Try a new place, at a different time. Try to stick together because the world is gonna get bigger and emptier, but it's not empty yet. It's still very full and about a kjghpillion degrees.
About no seconds pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The quarks are now happily married and in groups of three, called a proton or a neutron, and there's something else floating around too that wants to join in but can't because it's still too-
An explosion goes off while the screen says, "HOT." 10 minutes pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The protons and neutrons are now happily married to each other. Some of them even doubled up.
About 380,000 years pass.
NARRATOR: Great news! The electrons have now joined in. Congratulations! The world is now a bunch of gas in space, but it's getting closer together...
10 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...and it's getting closer together...
500 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...and it's getting closer toget-
An explosion occurs.
CHORUS: It's a star!
NARRATOR: New shit just got made. Some stars burn out and die. Bigger stars burn out and die with passion, and make some brand new, way crazier shit...
CHORUS: Space dust!
NARRATOR: ...which allows newer, more interesting stars to be made, and then die, and explode into-
CHORUS: Even crazier space dust!
NARRATOR: ...so now stars have cool stuff around them, like rocks, ice, and funny clouds, which can make some very interesting things, like this ball of flaming rocks for example.
NARRATOR: Holy shit! We just got hit with another ball of flaming rocks, and it kind of made a mess, which is-
CHORUS: Now the Moon!
The year is now -4,000,000,000.
NARRATOR: Weather update, it's raining rocks from outer space.
NARRATOR: Weather update, those rocks might have had water inside them, and now, there's hot steam in the sky.
NARRATOR: Weather update, cooler temperatures today, and the floor is no longer lava.
NARRATOR: Weather update, it's raining.
NARRATOR: Severe flooding alert! The entire world is now an ocean.
NARRATOR: Volcano alert!
CHORUS: That's land!
OCEAN: (Mumbles) There's life in the ocean.
NARRATOR: What?
CHORUS: Something's alive in the ocean.
IMMATERIAL OBSERVER (IO): Oh, cool. Like, a plant or an animal?
The camera zooms in on a single-cell organism.
NARRATOR: No, a microscopic speck. It lives at the bottom of the ocean and eats chemical soup which is being served hot and fresh, made from gnarly space ingredients leftover from when it was raining rocks or whatever.
The cell divides.
NARRATOR: Oh, yeah, and it can do that.
Those cells divide many more times.
NARRATOR: It has secret instructions written inside itself telling it how to build another one of itself. So that's pretty nifty, I would say.
NARRATOR: Tired of living at the bottom of the ocean?
CHORUS: Now you can eat sunlight!
The year is now -3,000,000,000.
NARRATOR: Using a revolutionary technique, you can convert sunlight into food.
CHORUS: Taste the sun!
The year is now -2,300,000,000.
NARRATOR: Side effect, now there's oxygen everywhere and the sky is blue. Then the Earth might have been a snowball for a while. Maybe even a couple of times.
The year is now -500,000,000.
NARRATOR: It's a sponge. It's a plant. It's a worm, and some other types of weird, strange water bugs and strange fish.
CHORUS: It's the Cambrian explosion!
IO: Wow, that's animals and stuff.
SEA LIFE: But we're still in the ocean. Hey, can we go on land?
CHORUS, as LAND: No!
SEA LIFE: Why?
CHORUS, as LAND: The sun is a deadly lazer!
SEA LIFE: Oh, okay.
CHORUS: Not anymore, there's a blanket.
NARRATOR: Now the animals can go on land. Come on animals, let's go on land.
FISH: Nope, can't walk yet. And there's no food yet, so I don't care.
100 million years pass.
LAND: Okay, will you learn to walk if there's plants up here?
SOME BUGS AND FISH: Maybe
NARRATOR: ...said some bugs... and fish.
The year is now -380,000,000. FISH grunts because it is struggling to get on land, for it has no legs. 5 million years pass. The year is now -375,000,000. FISH now has legs, for it has evolved into an AMPHIBIAN.
AMPHIBIAN: Okay, so I can go on land, but I have to go back in the water to-
CHORUS: Have babies!
The word "idea" flashes on to the screen.
NARRATOR: Learn to use an egg.
AMPHIBIAN: I was already doing that.
NARRATOR: Use a stronger egg. Put water in it. Have a baby, on land, in an egg. Water is in the egg. Baby, in the egg, in the water, in the egg.
The year is -312,000,000.
AMPHIBIAN OFFSPRING: Works for me.
CHORUS: Bye bye, ocean!
50 million years pass.
NARRATOR: And now everything's huge. Including bugs. Wanna see a map of the land?
IO: Sure.
The year is now -252,000,000. A globe is presented. The camera starts to pan around it when a large explosion happens, destroying a land mass on the globe the size of a continent. Text pops onto the screen reading "PERMIAN EXTINCTION." The Permian Extinction has occurred.
NARRATOR: Oh fuck, now everything's dead. Just kidding, here are the survivors.
The thrinaxodon, lystrosaurus, and proterosuchus are shown.
NARRATOR: Keep your eye on this one...
The proterosuchus is circled. 75 million years pass.
NARRATOR: ...'cause it's about to become the dinosaurs. Here's another map of the land.
The globe is shown again. It does not yet look like the Earth we know today; many of the continents are in pieces or out of place.
NARRATOR: Yeah, it broke apart. Don't worry about that. It does that all the time.
The year is now -66,000,000.
NARRATOR: Here comes a meteor.
A meteor comes into frame and hits the globe near what is today called Central America.
CHORUS: And the dinosaurs are gone!
NARRATOR: It's mammal time! Here come the mammals; look at those breasts.
The year is now -15,000,000.
NARRATOR: Now, they're gonna dominate the world, and one of them just learned how to grab stuff, and walk.
The year is now -4,000,000. A transition from one of human's older ancestors to one of human's younger ancestors is shown.
NARRATOR: No, like, walk like that, and grab stuff at the same time.
The year is now -3,000,000.
NARRATOR: And bang rocks together to make pointed rocks.
IO: Ouch.
The year is now -1,500,000.
NARRATOR: And set things on fire.
IO: Yeouch.
The year is now -200,000.
NARRATOR: And make crazy sounds with their voice.
CAVEMAN: Gneurshk.
NARRATOR: Which can mean different things.
Via the CAVEMAN's thought bubble, "Gnerushk," is shown to mean, "Hi," "Bye," and, "Can you hand me that rock over there?"
CHORUS: That's a human person!
NARRATOR: And now they're everywhere, almost.
Text pops on to the screen, above the landmass that is today called North America. It reads "not here yet." Humans have not migrated there yet. The year is now -20,000. Text pops on to the screen, between what is today the American state of Alaska and the Russian autonomous okrug (district) of Chukotka. The text reads "ice age." The ice age is occurring, creating a land bridge between the two landmasses.
CHORUS: Ice age!
HUMANS: What? You can walk over here? Cool!
The year is now -10,000.
CHORUS: Not anymore.
HUMANS: Well, I guess we're stuck here now.
NARRATOR: Let's review. There's people on the planet, and they're chasing their food.
HUMAN: Fuck it, time to plant some grass. Look at this. I control the food now. Now, everyone will want to be my friend and live near me. Let's all build houses, except mine is bigger because I own the food. This is great. I wonder if anyone else is doing this.
The year is now -5000.
NARRATOR: Tired of using rocks for everything? Use metal! It's underground.
NARRATOR: Better farming was just invented in a sweet dank valley right in between these two rivers, and the animals are helping.
A sheep baas in the background.
CHORUS: Guess what happens next!
NARRATOR: More food, and more people who came to buy the food, and you need people to help make the food and keep track of the sales, and now, you need houses for people to live in and people to make the houses, and now, there's more people, and they invent things which makes things better, and more people come, and there's more farming and more people to make more things for more people, and now, there's business, money, writing, laws, power.
CHORUS: Society!
NARRATOR: Coming soon to a dank river valley near you. Meanwhile, out in the middle of nowhere, the horse is probably being tamed.

The year is now -2000.
NARRATOR: Meanwhile, out in the middle of nowhere, they figured out how to put wheels on a horse. Now, we're getting somewhere. Also-
CHORUS: China!
NARRATOR: And did I mention-
CHORUS: Indus River Valley Civilization!
A "society count" comes on screen. It lists the four civilizations just named (including Mesopotamia, the "sweet dank valley right in between... two rivers"), as the counter counts up from one to four. It pauses for a moment before ticking up to five. A fifth civilization appears on the list. The camera pans right across the globe to what is modern day Peru.
CHORUS: Norte Chico!
NARRATOR: The Middle East is getting more complicated. Maybe because it's in the middle of the East.
The year is now -1600.
PEOPLE WITH HORSES: Knock, knock. Er... clop clop.
NARRATOR: It's the people with the horses, and they made an empire, and then everyone else copied their horses.
CHORUS: Greeks!
NARRATOR: Ah, look, it must be the Greeks. Or, a beta version of the Greeks.
Text pops up on screen, reading "mycenaean greeks." These "beta version... Greeks" are the Mycenaean Greeks.
NARRATOR: Let's check in with the Indus River Valley Civilization - they're gone. Guess who's not gone?
CHORUS: China!
The year is now -1200.
CHORUS: New arrivals in India! Maybe it's those horse people I was talking about, or their cousins, or something... And they wrote some hymns and mantras and stuff!
NARRATOR: You could make a religion out of this.
The year is now -1150.
NARRATOR: There's the Bronze Age collapse.
CHORUS: Now, the Phoenicians can get down to business!
HUMANS: (Offscreen) Also, can we switch to a metal that's a little easier to find?
Bronze switches to iron.
HUMANS: (Offscreen) Thanks.
NARRATOR: Look who came back to Israel - it's the twelve tribes of Israel!
CHORUS: And they believe in God!
NARRATOR: Just one though; he's got like a ten step program.
NARRATOR: Here's some huge heads. Must be the Olmecs.
The year is now -800.
NARRATOR: The Phoenicians make some colonies. The Greeks copy their idea and make some colonies. The Phoenicians made a colony so big it makes colonies.
The year is now -671.
NARRATOR: Here comes the Assyrian Empire.
The year is now -600.
NARRATOR: Nevermind, it's the Babylo-
The year is now -580.

CHORUS: It's the Persian Empire!
IO: Wow, that's big.
NARRATOR: Ah, the Buddha was just enlightened!
IO: Who's the Buddha?
NARRATOR: This guy, who sat under a tree for so long that he figured out how to ignore the fact that we're all dying. You could make a religion out of this.
The year is now -475.
NARRATOR: Oops, China just broke, but while it was breaking, Confucius was figuring out how to have good morals.
The year is now -400.
NARRATOR: Ah, the Greeks just had the idea of thinking about stuff...
The year is now -330.
NARRATOR: ...and right over here, Alexander just had the idea of conquering the entire Persian empire. It's a great idea. He was... Great, and now he's dead. Hopefully, the rest of the gang will be able to share the empire evenly between them.
The year is now -305.
CHANDRAGUPTA: Knock knock.
NARRATOR: It's Chandragupta. He says-

CHORUS: Time to conquer all of India!
NARRATOR: Er-
CHORUS: Most of India!
IO: But what about this part?
NARRATOR: That's the Tamil kings. No one conquers the Tamil kings.
IO: Who are the Tamil kings?
CHORUS: Merchants, probably... And they've got spices!
TAMIL KINGS: Who would like to buy the spices?
ARABIANS: Me!
NARRATOR: ...said the Arabians, swiftly buying it and selling it to the rest of the world.
The year is now -221.
NARRATOR: Hey, China put itself back together again, with good morals as their main philosophy! Actually, they have three main philosophies.
Confucianism, Taoism, and legalism appear with the corresponding messages under: having good morals, go with the flow, and "fuck you obey the law". The land northwest of Qin China, which is roughly modern-day Mongolia, is circled.
NARRATOR: Out here, the horse nomads run wild and free, and they would like to ransack your city.
The horse nomads repeatedly bump into China with the coin sound effect from Super Mario playing each time they do so. The camera pans left on the globe back to the Ancient Greek Empire.
NARRATOR: Let's check the Greekification levels of the Greekified kingdoms. Greekification overload!
PARTHIANS: Bye.

The year is now 30 CE.
JESUS CHRIST: Hi, everything's great.
NARRATOR: ...said some guy, who seems to be getting very popular, and is then arrested and killed for being too popular, which only makes him more popular. You could make a religion out of this.

CHORUS: Brand new road to the world!
China conquers Vietnam.
CHORUS: Or you can get there on water!
INDIA: Sick! New trade routes.
NARRATOR: ...said India, accidentally spreading their religion to the entire southeast.

NARRATOR: Hm, that's a good place for an epic trading kingdom.
The sound of a zooming car plays.
NARRATOR: There goes Buddhism, traveling up the silk road.
The year is now 220.
NARRATOR: I wonder if it'll reach China before it collapses again.
The year is now 225.
NARRATOR: Remember the Persian Empire?
PERSIANS: Yep.
NARRATOR: ...said the Persians, making a new one. Axum is getting so powerful they would like to build a long stick. Has anyone populated Madagascar yet?

The year is now 280.
CHORUS: China is whole again!
The year is now 320.

NARRATOR: What's a barbarian?
ROMANS: Non-Romans.
NARRATOR: ...said the Romans, being invaded by non-Romans.
The year is now 476.
NARRATOR: R.I.P. Roman Empire. Er, actually just half of it; the other half is just fine, but it's not in Rome anymore, so let's give it a new name.
CHORUS: The Mayans have figured out the stars!
NARRATOR: Oh, and here's a huge city, population: everyone.
The year is now 576.
NARRATOR: The Göktürks have taken over the entire Eurasian steppe. Great job, Göktürks. How's India? Broken. How's China?
CHORUS: Back together.
NARRATOR: How's those trading kingdoms?
CHORUS: Bigger, and there's more of them.
NARRATOR: Korea has three kingdoms. Japan has a kingdom; it's the sunrise kingdom.
An intermission occurs. The year is now 610.
NARRATOR: Deep in the Arabian desert, on the top of a mountain, the real god whispers in Muhammad's ear, so he goes down to the cube where everyone worships gods, and he tells them their gods are all fake...
The year is now 622.
NARRATOR: ...and everyone got so mad at him that he had to leave town and go to a different town. You can make a religion out of this...
The year is now 650.
NARRATOR: ...and maybe conquer the world as well. The Roman Empire is long gone, but somehow, the Pope is still the Pope! Plus, there's-
CHORUS: New kingdoms all over Europe!

The year is now 786.
NARRATOR: Here's all the wisdom, in a house: it's the Baghdad House of Wisdom, just in time for the-

NARRATOR: Wanna get enlightened in the middle of nowhere?
NARRATOR: The Franks have the biggest kingdom in Europe, and the Pope is so proud that he invites the king over for Christmas.
The year is now 800.
POPE: Surprise! You're the new Roman Emperor!
NARRATOR: ...said the Pope, pretending to still be part of the Roman Empire. Then, the Franks broke their kingdom into what will later be called France and Not France. The Northerners (or just Norse, if you don't have much time) are exploring. They go north, from the north, to the northern north, and they find some land, two types of land, and they name them accordingly.
Large text comes on screen reading, "prankd."
NARRATOR: They also invade some other places and get called many names, such as Vikings.
The year is now 882.
NARRATOR: There's the Rus, the Kievan Rus.

KIEVAN RUS: I don't think so.
NARRATOR: ...said the Kievan Rus.
IO: Okay, fair enough.

BYZANTINE EMPIRE: Aah!
NARRATOR: ...said the Byzantine Empire, who's getting so small it almost doesn't exist anymore.
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: We need help!
NARRATOR: They need help, so they call the Pope.
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: Hey, Pope, can you help us get rid of the Seljuks? Maybe take back the Holy Land on the way? Come on, I know you want to take back the Holy Land.
POPE: Yes, I do actually want to do that. Let's do a Crusade.
The year is now 1099.
CHORUS: Crusade!
NARRATOR: They did many crusades, some of which almost didn't fail, but at the least the Italians got some sweet trade deals.
The year is now 1100.

The year is now 1230. It rapidly starts to count upward as the Mongols spin and fly all over north Asia. The year ends on 1259.
NARRATOR: ...and the Mongols just invaded most of the universe. (sarcastically) Nice going, Genghis! I bet that will last a long time.
The Mongol Empire that was just formed shatters.
NARRATOR: Some of the Islamic Turks were unaffected by the Mongol invasions because they were busy invading India.
Bright, happy text comes on the screen reading, "tonga time."
NARRATOR: Is it Tonga time?
TONGAN: I think it's Tonga time!
Text comes on screen reading, "colonizing the pacific ocean..." The Tu'i Tonga Empire forms.

IBERIAN PENINSULA: Please remain Christian. We will check in later to see if you're still Christian when you least expect.

NARRATOR: Ma-ja-pa-hit?
The ring of a "correct" bell rings. The year is now 1450.
NARRATOR: Oh, Italy's really rich. Time for them to care a lot about art and the ancient classics. It's kinda like a re-birth.
The text on the screen reads "renaissance".
NARRATOR: Here's a printer, let's make books!
BYZANTINE EMPIRE: So you think you can conquer the Byzantine Empire?
OTTOMAN TURKS: Yep.

NARRATOR: ...said Portugal, spiceless.
CHORUS, as PORTUGAL: Well, I guess we'll have to find another way to India!
CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS: Wait!
NARRATOR: ...said Christopher Columbus, probably smoking crack.
COLUMBUS: If the world is round, let's go this way to India!
PORTUGAL: Nah, don't worry, we already got this
NARRATOR: ...said Portugal. So Chris goes to Spain.
COLUMBUS: Hey, Spain, wanna hire me to find India by going around the back of the world?
SPAIN: No.
COLUMBUS: Please?
SPAIN: No.
COLUMBUS: Please?
SPAIN: No.

The year is now 1494.
SPAIN and PORTUGAL: Let's draw a line to decide who gets which half of the world.

NARRATOR: The Hapsburgs are marrying into so many royal families that they might have to start marrying each other.
The year is now 1500.
NARRATOR: Move over, Lithuania! Here comes Moscow. Ivan wants to make Russia great again. Move over, Timurids; maybe go invade India or something.
The year is now 1501.
NARRATOR: Persia just made Persia Persian again. Let's make it the other kind of Islam, the one where we thought the first guy should have been the other guy.
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH: Hey, Christians! Do you sin? Now you can buy your way out of Hell.
MARTIN LUTHER: That's bullshit, this whole thing is bullshit, that's a scam, fuck the church. Here's 95 reasons why.

SULEIMAN THE MAGNIFICENT: You know what would be magnificent?

SULEIMAN: What if the Ottoman Empire was really big, which it is now?
The year is now 1556.
IVAN THE TERRIBLE: What if Russia was big?
NARRATOR: ...said Ivan, trying not to be terrible.
NARRATOR: Portugal had a dream that they controlled the entire Indian Ocean, including the Spice Trade... and then that dream was real. And Spain realized that this is not India, but they pillaged it anyway!
ENGLAND and FRANCE: Damn.
NARRATOR: ...said England and France.
ENGLAND and FRANCE: We gotta start pillaging some stuff.

The year is now 1640.
NARRATOR: Guess where all the sugar is made. In Brazil-
THE DUTCH: Stolen!

The year is now 1754.
NARRATOR: Britain and France are having a friendly discussion about who should control the entire world, more specifically Ohio. Then it escalates into a seven year discussion, giving Prussia a chance to show Austria who's boss.

The year is now 1776.
AMERICA: Fuck you.
NARRATOR: ...says America, declaring their independence and fighting for it, and France helps them win. Now, France is broke...

IO: Wait, who's in charge of France now?

CHORUS: Many different types of machines, and factories with machines in them, so they can make a lot of products real fast.
NARRATOR: Then, they invent some trains and conquer India and maybe put some trains there.
BRITAIN: Hey, China!
NARRATOR: ...said Britain.
BRITAIN: Buy stuff from us!
CHINA: Nah, dude, we already got everything.
NARRATOR: ...says China, so Britain tried to get them addicted to opium, which worked, actually, but then, China made it illegal...
The year is now 1839.
NARRATOR: ...and dumped it all into the sea, so Britain threw a hissy fit and made them open up five cities and give them an island. Britain and Russia are playing a game where they try and stop each other from conquering Afghanistan. Also, the-

The year is now 1884.
EUROPE: I know! Let's rape Africa.
NARRATOR: ...said Europe, scrambling to see who could rape it the fastest. (They never got Ethiopia.) Britain and France are still hungry! (They never got Thailand.) The United States ran out of destiny to manifest, so they're looking for more.

UNITED STATES: Well, blame something on them, and go to war.

The year is now 1914.
NARRATOR: ...so they start World War I. Look at those guns! It's gonna be a "Great War" - so great we won't need a second one. After it's over, they blame Germany.

A phone rings.
IO: Hello?
THE 1920s: Yes, it's the 1920s calling. Let's get in a car and drive to a party and listen to jazz on the radio and go to the movies. The economy is great, and it will probably be great forever- just kidding!
A slide whistle with decreasing pitch briefly plays. The year is now 1933.
NARRATOR: Germany is back, featuring Hitler, the angry mustache model, and he's mad at the Jews for existing. Japan is finally conquering the East, and they're so excited...

NARRATOR: (Like Announcer from Mortal Kombat) Pacific Showdown: United States versus Japan! Fight!
A drop-down menu that reads "weapon select" pops up, and the U.S. cursor moves down from "boat" to "plane" to "extinction ball." It is picked, dropped on Japan, and an explosion results. The year is now 1945.

Another one is dropped, and another explosion follows.

The year is now 1947.
UNITED NATIONS: Let's divide up the land so everyone's happy.

REPUBLIC of CHINA: No, thanks.
NARRATOR: ...said the other China, escaping to an island. I wonder which one is the real China?
The year is now 1950.
NARRATOR: There's the Korean War: Korea versus Korea. Nobody wins and then it's on pause forever. Let's meet the sponsors! Oh, it's the two global superpowers. They're having a friendly debate over which economic system is good and which one is an evil virus of Satan. And they both have atom bombs.
NARRATOR: (With an echo) FIGHT!
NARRATOR: Wait, no, that would be the end of the world. Let's just keep it cool and spy on each other instead, and make sure we have enough atom bombs.
The year is now 1957.

The year is now 1963.
NARRATOR: The United States finally decided whether racism is good or bad. They decided it's bad, and the world agrees. South Africa might need another minute to think about it. Let's check the world population.

IO: Whoa... Okay.
NARRATOR: Technology is better too; that might keep happening. The Soviet Union decides to relax a little...
The year is now 1991.
NARRATOR: ...and accidentally falls apart. Europe makes a union...
The year is now 1999.
NARRATOR: ...so now, they can all use the same money, except Britain 'cause they don't feel like it. Let's check the mail! Surprise! It's on the computer.
The year is now 2001.

2019 MINI-GUIDE FOR THE GUYS THERE WERE KICKED OUT OF R/FORMULA1 FOR ASKING STUFF ABOUT F1 YOU'RE WELCOME

(First and only edit: people, this is not f1. Nothing here is serious, don't waste time. This isnt formuladank as well, so if you want to post/see memes, do it there. This is for the satire and copy-pasta.
Also, TALK IN CAPS PLEASE)
So, recently we have face various newborns (AKA GP3 fam) here at F1CircleJerk that tried to encounter shelter with us, since the people at formula1 don't really help them, with multiple complaints about deleted posts and downvoted comments whenever our little gp3 fans ask for help. Since those little seeds need to have the wisdom of a God to understand this sub, and the other one, i shall help all the gaijins finding their ways the best way - with conscience. And although this isn't the best place for it, at least nobody will get triggered for the things I'm about to say - this sadly isn't going to be a lit post, just the truth with truth and nothing else but the truth. And i'm already sorry for not shouting - first rule in this sub - but I don't want to scare the poor kids. I need to talk about various things, so lets start with the only thing the other guys know, this year's drivers:

DAE DRIVERS

(Per driver's number)

#3 - DANIEL RICCIARDO
Always with a smile on his face, one of the fastest man on the grid, saying he sucks will make you downvoted by everyone but Max's fans. He's regular, he's fast and unlike most drivers, he knows when to attack and overtake others, as well how to defend... legally. You may see various reasons of why did we switched from Red Bull to Renault, but the truth is that it was a combination of factors: Red Bull supported more Max than him - one example was Baku's GP, where they both crashed after max pulled out a "Crashtappen" (see max for more); Red Bull hasn't made a winning car since the last era, even though in the end they always fight for wins - but to be champions, they need to have a good car since the first race. This two, added to the fact Renault is the best team from the "2nd grid" (basically, all the teams that don't fight for podiums in all races), and it's on constant evolution, gave Ricciardo the perfect "escuses" to leave the Red Bull atmosphere for the first time in F1.
Special Power: DAE SHOEY

#4 - NANDO NORRIS
Not much to say about him. He's a rookie, sponsored by McLaren, that won what he had to win. Last year in Daytona 500, he crushed Alonso himself (they drove the same car), and so expectations are high, even though he's driving a McLaren.
Special Power: Cat fishing guys in bars

#5 - SEBASTIAN VETTEL
After dominating the championships from 2010 to 2013 with Red Bull, both started a down loop that are yet to get out of. He's still the youngest F1's champion in history, after crushing all "young" records - starting with a pole+victory in a Toro Rosso. After this dominance, Vettel got crushed by Ricciardo in 2014, moving to Ferrari where he did.. worse. If in the first seasons with the Italians he could complaint about La grande Strategia, last year the fault was clearly of it's own. Mistakes after mistakes, both from team and driver, led to even more mistakes and rushed decisions. You may see a reduced fan base from him, since most of his supporters were either Ferrari's fans or Hamilton's haters. With Leclerc arriving in red, if Vettel doesn't get straight, he may run out of fans.
Special Power: SPINTELL BOTTLE and GRAZZIE REGAZZI

#7 - KIMI RÄIKKÖNEN
One of the most beloved drivers in the grid, Kimi is synonym of reliable. Won the drivers' title back in 2007, after being blessed by Hamilton and Alonso misunderstandings (and most of all, a bad end of season from this two). Since then, he had highs and lows, retiring from F1 in 2010 to race in WRC, returning in 2012 with Lotus to end in a stunning 3rd place in the championship. We would return to Ferrari, having seasons that really didn't explain why he was still there. Last year, he did his best season since 2012 - winning in last year's USA GP after 7 years away from the 1st place - and... he was replaced with Leclerc.
Special Power: KNOWING WHAT HE'S DOING (With ice-creams and vodka mixed)

#8 - ROMAIN GROSJEAN
After coming too soon in F1 back in 2009 (blink blink), he comeback 3 years later to... outrun Maldonado as the Torpedo Man. With this French, you either have the top result, or a car in the junkyard. Yes, this old face doesn't know a middle term and I only hope he cooks better than he drives. Yes, he loves to cook - he even has a book - but if he keeps making the same recipe, he may get fired (and I'm not talking about his Chef hobby).
Special Power: DAE FAST-FOOD

#10 - PIERRE GASLY
After reaching his peak at Bahrain's GP (2018's 2nd race), where he finished 4th, Gasly only made a good race in Hungary. Although seeming extremely fast, he showed a lot of inconsistency - he was second to last after Bahrain -, and it's not obvious what he can (or can't) do this season. One thing is for sure: if he won a GP2 championship, he can win at F1 as well, even if he'll probably work for Max.

#11 - SERGIO PEREZ
Checo started in Sauber back in 2011, quickly proving that he was there to stay - scoring one of Sauber's last podiums - and being promoted to McLaren in 2013, when they still had a reasonable car. Well, if Perez was known to be way too much impulsive/aggressive in the overtakes (like max is nowadays), this season was by far his peak in crashes and mistakes. After that, he moved to Force India, where he's currently staying. Very consistent and fast, he doesn't make it easy for anyone - not even teammates. He already said it wouldn't change for Stroll this season, so let's see what may or may not happen.
Special Power: ay ay ay

#16 - CHARLES LECLERC
OMG THIS B I A T X IS SO OVERRATED - noobs. The rookie of the year, Charles started 2018 discretely after winning the GP3 and GP2 championships in 2016 and 2017. After 3 blank races, he scored an amazing 6th place in Baku. After that, he either had problems (for instance, Germany, where the team kept sending him to the track with wrong tires) or finished on points (expect for Monza), what's pretty impressive for a rookie that clearly started the season in the worst car. Arriving to Ferrari this year, everyone is excited to know what he can do, but this is just his 2nd F1 season, and the first in a top team. There's a big chance Leclerc won't fight for the Crown, but who knows?
Special Power: BEING SEXY AF

#18 - LANCE STROLL
"LMAO HE SUCCS SO BAD HE ONLY HAS BLING-BLING OR ELSE HE WOULDN'T BE ON F1 FML" - everyone. But the fact is that the amount of drivers that are able to finish in the podium, in their first season, with one of the worst cars on the grid, is low, so has to got some kind of talent. Yes, he entered due to his daddy and yes, he is Force India because of him as well, but he did just scored less 3 points than Massa in his debut season. Furthermore, he owned Sirotkin, that finished 3rd twice in GP2 - and dominated 2016's F3 season, what means he is not terrible. He will now have a team mate at his peak of performance, so let's see if I'm right or not.

#20 - KEVIN MAGNUSSEN
In his 3rd year with Haas - after switching teams every season -, k-mag is finally more calm. He hasn't crashed that much last year and for some races was his team front face. This season, he only needs to do the good work again, and eventually he will be able to fight for podiums - and more importantly, remain with the americans.
Special Power: SUCC MY BALLS

#23 - ALEXANDER ALBON
Who the hell is this Thai? It's hard to say. In 2015 he lost the F3 champioship to Felix Rosenqvist, Giovinazzi, Jake Dennis, Leclerc, Stroll and Russel; next year he went to GP3 to loose, again, to Charles; 2017 he climbed to GP2 and, you guess it, he lost to Leclerc (and 8 other drivers). And last year, again in GP2, he finished 3rd, behind Russel and Norris. He was going to race in Formula-E, but Toro Rosso was in need of a driver so, he was the "lucky" one to get the seat. And I say "lucky" because if he doesn't beat, at least, his old enemies, Red Bull won't be afraid to kick him - what could mean the end for F1 to this Buddhist and maybe even his career.

#26 - DANIIL KVYAT
DAE TORPEDO IS BACK! He arrived to the top of F1 as quick as he left. After going to Toro Rosso in 2014 (instead of António Félix da Costa), he was lucky to see Vettel leave the main team. He replaced him, beat Ricciardo - one of the few drivers to done that - and in 2016 he... imploded. Although he had nice performances, he also crashed a lot and he switched places with Max mid-season. This should clear pressure off him, and calm him down.. but it he was way too demotivated to go back to Red Bull. He was fired, last year he helped Ferrari as the 3rd Driver and now, due to a big lack of drivers of his first team, he's back for the 3rd time to Toro Rosso. The only doubt is if this gap year was enough to bring back 2015's Kvyat.
Special Power: DAE TORPEDO

#27 - NICO HULKENBERG
Dae HULK is clearly a super regular driver - proven by being the best of the "others" very often - but it still hasn't scored a podium. Renault intentions are to fight for the top 3, so let's hope Nico stops breaking the record as the pilot with more races without having a podium.

#33 - MAX VERSTAPPEN
Crashtappen is growing, and after a long time causing headaches to drivers, bosses and F1 itself, he's slowly thinking with the head and not the heart when it comes to wheel-to-wheel fights - although he still crashes way too much. With this, he's gaining trust and respect from other drivers, even with the episodes of Baku and Interlagos (you can share fault with the drivers involved, but the truth is Max didn't need to defend positions in both cases). More than that, according to Christian Horner, Max finally took tests seriously so we may have to count, for the first time, Max in the championship fight. It would be good to have a 3-way than a Vettel-Hamilton telenovela all over again...
Special Power: CRASHTAPPEN

#44 - LEWIS HAMILTON
Opinions fall apart when talking about him. Yes, he is extremely fast, no one can't take that away from him. But to all old F1 fans, they'll remember that in his first F1 season he fought for the champ and end up losing it to Kimi, after kneeling to the pressure and driving Alonso mad. He eventually won next year - stealing it from Massa -, but after that he didn't quite drove to win Champs, but he did won at least one race per season. So, in this forum everyone wants him to loose - because of that Brazilian GP, 'cause he arrived as rookie and tried to be the first driver or 'caz he left McLaren, that helped him grow up and achieving F1, for Mercedes - while in formula1 they don't quite know this facts, and so they all are fan-boys that support him even when he mess things up - the guilty one is always Vettel for them. Anyhoo, he is the main favorite to win a championship - he's breaking most of the records, what is normal when the seasons are the biggest in history and you have one of the best cars in the grid (fans don't get this either, they claim him as a god that wears Prada, i mean, Tommy), but everytime he has problems with his ex Nicole (the one from the Pussycat Dolls) he goes down. Lately he has been busy with his hobbies, but so far it didn't quite distract him. Let's see.
Special Power: HAMMERTIME

#55 - CARLOS SAINZ JR.
Although he wasn't the fastest of the Red Bull Juniors back when he entered F1 - Once again, Félix da Costa was "overtaken" in this race even though he clearly owned Sainz in Formula Renault 3.5 - Sainz joined Toro Rosso with a star status (his dad was one of the best rally drivers in history and he's still capable of winning the Dakar). But then, he aimed higher than he could reach. When the spot for Red Bull opened, Max was the chosen one and so Carlos Sainz (Sr.) put pressure to have his son in the main team. That didn't happened, and so Sainz was "borrowed" to Renault in the middle of 2017's season. He later broke the contract that connected him with the Red Bull world and... got fired from Renault, in a season that Red Bull had a spot in the main team. Bad choices so far, adding to the fact he only found a seat in McLaren, makes me wonder with there's still future for this Spanish driver.

#63 - GEORGE RUSSEL
Mercedes' protected, Russel may be aiming for Bottas' car in the end of the season. To do that, he just needs to crush Kubica or, if Bottas' season goes from bad to worse, just keep up with the Polish and drive away from last place. He still needs to surprise us, since Ocon wants that seat as well. So far, he has 2 titles in his pocket (one from GP3, another from F2), and a 3rd championship place under Stroll's dominance. Let's see what this lesbian, i mean, kid can do.

#77 - VALTTERI BOTTAS
Such a good dogg. Sadly he can't rap, but he obeys Mercedes orders as a good teammate would do but the only thing he got from it was a place in the "hated" section from our hearts. He started in Williams, took advantage of their last good cars to sum podiums and finally in 2017 he was the chosen one to replace Rosberg at Mercedes. Finishing his debut season in the big teams 13 times in the podium (out of 20 races), things were looking good for him until Ferrari appeared. Last year, he only showed up in the podium 8 out of 21 opportunities, not winning a single race (he had to give Russia's for Hamilton, wasn't allowed to fight in Germany, but still). If he doesn't bother Hamilton more this season - at least making his team to tell him to stop -, he may loose his seat for Ocon or Russel...
Special Power: Valtteri, it's James.

#88 - ROBERT KUBICA
GOD🅱ICA IS BACK! After trying to grab Williams' seat last season - he lost it to Sergay Sirotkin - he finally won the right to be back to F1. This, after a rally crash (the car looked like this), almost taking his life away. Before that, we was fighting for WDC with a BMW that never met developments after summer breaks (he was into crashes too). He was pointed as a future champion but he spent his golden years recovering from that crash. What can he do, it's unknown, but last years he trained and his rhythm was impressive both for Renault's and Williams' Bosses. Let's hope he still got it - even if he doesn't, DON'T YOU DARE TO SAY HE SUCKS YOU LITTLE CUNT.
Special Power: Just another proof he's a GOD

#99 - ANTONIO GIOVINAZZI
The return of a Italian driver to F1 - since Trulli and Liuzzi in 2011 - is marked by a return of an old Italian team as well. Giovinazzi doesn't have much to offer. He was 2nd in F3 and GP2, seemed to had a pretty decent future in the Le Mans' world and in the two races he was on, replacing the injure Pascal Wehrlein 2 years ago, he didn't shine at all. He was overtaken by Leclerc in the race to Ferrari, but this doesn't mean he won't be able to grab a sit there as well, if he does his homework - but starting with 25 years, the clock is ticking.

DAE TEAMS

ALFA ROMEO RACING
PASSION, DEDICATION AND EFFORT, for Ferrari. Ah, the joy of hearing little children dreaming with the biggest ever made in history and knowing Alfa Romeo is not one of them! Seriously, when they started, Alfa Romeo was dae goat, winning alongside Mercedes and Maserati the early years - including the first season, where it had no competition at all. But times change, finance problems almost closed them, they return in the 80's and let's no talk about it. The fact is Ferrari needed a B-team, and even though they had HAAS, it wasn't that obvious, so they now have Alfa Romeo. And if you think they are going to fight for victories, you can stop dreaming because it will no happen. Alfa Romeo is a brand of the FIAT-Chrysler group, the "bosses" of Ferrari. Plus, if you liked Sauber and cried when they "vanish", do not worry child, the only thing that disappeared was the name and logo - the people and factory are the same.

Scuderia FERRARI
MISSION WINNOW, WINNOW! Just kidding. Ferrari is like that 60 old guy that dates 20's: He's able to stay at the top after all this years, sometimes even with performance peaks higher than everyone else (cof blue pills cof) but in the end he is going to ruin it, choking when he gets close to his goal (a heart attack when he's almost there). The strategy was a joke in the last years, and even Kimi's title, the last one of the team, was a bit of luck (thank you Hamilton, blessed). And when Sergio Marchionne was about to turn back to the golden days, he died (probably a Mercedes hitman, idk). The fact is even if he's dead, Ferrari honored his wishes and kicked out Kimi - that had it's best season since his return to Ferrari - and grab Leclerc. This should have been done way sooner, for instance, with Bianchi, but they just let it be and Mercedes kept winning easily. That's not the case so far, and apart the small errors in the end of the last season, Ferrari's biggest problem was, in fact, Vettel's chokes. With Leclerc, this should be over soon, and we may even see Ferrari back to the World Title. Also, saying Ferrari's red is unoriginal? Since 1950 they have that color, except for 1964 when they raced in blue as a revenge of Enzo Ferrari himself... c'mon, unoriginal?

RICH ENERGY HAAS F1 TEAM
USA, USA, USA! The 'muricans got it strong but screw thing up somehow. They have the car for more, they have the team, the money, the installations, the drivers but there's always a bit that don't work out with the rest. A good example of what they can do it's the Austria's GP (or even Australia's, until the gave up with loosen wheels). Mr. Haas said he was here to win, boosted his way to a nice mid-grid place with Ferrari's assistance but no podiums so far. He needs to pop up the game this season. So far, he has the better looking car in the grid, but it's not enough.

McLAREN F1 TEAM
ShitLaren is more loved for being Alonslow's home than actually being a good team. But Fernando is out, and nevertheless his presence is still nearby - he will be testing and his clothes brand, Kimoa, is still on track - McLaren now misses a big driver in the team. They brought Sainz, that had experience, and Lando, their protected, but he needs time. The good thing is their car seems to be a long and clear step in front, so we may stop seeing the orange cars in points more often. Although everyone says this year's livery is a copy past from 2018, the orange brings back the original McLaren's color, since the white and red is mainly associated with Honda and the black and silver to Mercedes, and they probably don't want to remember their old motor suppliers: essentially, McLaren was on top, left Mercedes because the Germans were going back as constructor and you can not fight for championships with a engine that isn't "yours", arrange a deal with Honda and in my point of view they screw things up and didn't design the car for the engine, but obligated Honda to construct the engine for the car (what is wayyy harder). Anyhoo, the McLaren-Honda didn't worked, and they now have a Renault engine since was the only choice for them.

MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS MOTORSPORT
Mercedes is a that brand that every noob loves. And why, you ask? Because they've won the last championships. Personally, I don't want to wish warm to them - in fact, i kinda like the Germans (for what they did back in the 50's) - but having Louise Shamilton as a driver? I hope they burn in a fireball. You may hear that the silver arrows - the reason why they didn't changed that much their paint YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE - are the most successful F1 team, but it's a lie. Brown GP is still dae GOAT. Even though, they have one of the most powerful teams on the grid, and when they have issues, they will solve them quickly enough to not loosing that much to other teams. You can't point weak spots, but you can always improve, and that's why if Buttas doesn't stop to be a good doggy, he may be replaced by Ocon or Russel in the end of the season. If God exists, Ocon will replace Hamilton instead.

RACING POINT F1 TEAM
Another life for Force India. Stroll's Daddy bought the Indian team that is known for having the best price/performance ratio - With lower budgets than most teams, they are usually just behind Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull. They're back in pink - because of BTW, the main sponsor - and they kicked Ocon for Stroll (since the Canadian's dad bought the team). The problem, in my point of view, is why would they kick Ocon instead of Perez? While they have similiar performances, the french is a few years younger than the Mexican and both had more or less the same money with the sponsors. Well, the fact is Racing Point may be aiming even higher, since Stroll has more money than the previous owners - and if the team it's the same, more money means more results.

Aston Martin RED BULL Racing
The drinking team is still crying for not going back to 2013. Ah, how times have changed and they haven't learned nothing yet. After 4 titles, giving 0 credit for Renault, that supplied their engines, the moment they stopped winning they pointed fingers to the Frenches. This ones decided to go back to F1 as manufacturer, and after months of discussion - including having a Renault's engine named Tag Heuer in the Austrian's car - it was a matter of time until Red Bull grabbed Honda's wiener engine. In a 4 part deal - Honda, McLaren, Renault and Red Bull -, the Japoneses started to supply Toro Rosso, warming up to give the new RB15's heart. At least thing seems to go well, and we may have to count them for the title.

RENAULT F1 TEAM
Years have gone by without a single title for the yellow team. Things changed in 2005/06, but soon went back to the same old shitty place. The left, and now their back once again, stronger than ever and bringing the classic yellow. Their original plan includes fighting for podiums this season, and with a completely new power unit, they actually may do it - and least that's what Ricciardo and Hulkenberg want to. Without Red Bull's stress, the team morale should be high af, so... Vive la Revolution!

RED BULL TORO ROSSO HONDA
If so far I talked about teams having a chance to grab a podium now and then, Toro Rosso's chances for it are tending towards 0. They are Reb Bull mini team, and with the same engine, they have 0 advantage whatsoever - all the good upgrades will be installed in the main team, the bad ones are going to be tested here, and the main drivers are (theoretically) better. And before you say to fuck myself because they have won one race back in 2008, remember they had a better engine than the main team and it was raining - and rain brings the best of the pilot, not exactly the car.

WILLIAMS RACING
And while Toro Rosso should have quite some trouble getting to the podium, Williams will have troubles getting points. If you notice Williams were something like Red Bull in the 80/90's, Williams had only one lucky victory since 2004 - thank you Lord Maldonado, that, btw, is a good driver you haters. They were in the top of their game in 2014-2016, with buttas and Massa, but since then they have been the best of the worst. And if loosing Martini's money wasn't enough, they lost days of track test for not having the car ready. Oh, dear Williams... just loose the Williams, she sucks and Frank is getting too old for this. I'm praying for this car doens't kill God🅱ika and Russell's career.

WHAT'S NEW FOR 2019?

Cars have simpler wings to improve the air flow for the car behind, increasing the downforce while pursuing in corners but the genius that came up with this also allowed bigger wings. Therefore, the car needs more air to generate the grip. I'm trying to simplify the situation but basically they fucked things up and overtakes may be harder, at least in tracks that require a lot of grip (Monaco should be fun). There's also new globes, that's quite interesting.

WHAT TO EXPECT FOR THIS SEASON?

As you see, there are plenty of question marks, but this is my bet:
> 0 Overtakes in Australia
> Ferrari starts strong
> Toto Looses hair
> Red Bull complaints on Honda
> There's like an orgy between the rest of the grid, but Williams stays on the back
> Eventually Mercedes returns to a good shape.
> Ferrari starts to crumble
> Hammertime 24/7, buttas has to stay back for shamilton
> Leclerc doesn't knee down to pressure, taking the lead of the team
> Vettel gets even more pressure, therefore spins more, having more pressure and so on
> Meanwhile, Red Bull starts winning races, complaining about Honda
> People start saying Russel is dae goat for beating Kubica.
> Even thought he scored 0 points.
> Ricciardo gets his first podium for Renault
> Hulkenberg finishes 4th, again
> Kimi driking vodka and scoring points like a boss
> crazy stuff and Race point 4th in the constructors championship
> Vettel keeps spinning around baby right round like a record baby
> ItsHondaFault.jpeg
> Leclerc making Hamilton jobs hard while Vettel spun, again
> Mercedes announces Williams as their B-team
> Ocon confirmed in Mercedes
> Max wins random race
> Vettel announces his retirement or a new contract after being crushed by Leclerc
> Kimi back to Ferrari (jk, they bring back Alonslow)
> Honda it's the reason why we didn't won the WDC
> Williams scores 1 point
> Mission Winnow failed, we get them next time

TL;DR - LECLERC GUD, WILLIAMS BAD

and Vettel spins out 'caz Honda.
