      his humor is really advanced sometimes, honest. it's a great way to say "human beings can't comprehend something this fast." and he followed it up with "human beings can't comprehend something this LARGE moving this fast." right after, but he was able to make a throughline for the two statements to flow better. while also making it pretty humorous, and giving pause to people who didn't quite get it. "wait, what?" humor is a favorite of mine.

    Love that Ryan and Shane casually forgot that after World War I, the was an entire *revolution* and upheaval of the Russian government, meaning that a government funded expedition into a remote and sparsely inhabited area was MAYBE not a top priority for a while.

    • CaptainRasmot
      CaptainRasmot 2 місяці тому +24

      Technically the revolution happened *after* World War 1, but Russia was also kinda mired in a number of smaller wars at the time, especially when it came to Poland and Ukraine (ironically enough). That and Russia was ruled by a Czar so scientific ventures were not *exactly* top priority back then. Though also love how they forget that Siberia is an absolute hellish Tundra to get through. So it more than makes sense that their pace was slowed to a crawl.

    As a science student, I think I got too focused on the science to properly enjoy the mystery and whimsy of this episode, but I'm really happy to see the boys changing it up and exploring mysteries beyond true crime! I'm really excited for the rest of this season (and hopefully more to come)!

    This was a really fun video!
    I was curious so I asked my mom who used to live in Krasnoyarsk and would go with her grandpa to the tundra when she was a little kid if she remembered anything about this. She told me apparently she remembers that a lot of people who would specificly go to those areas say that "the trees would move from one place to another" she herself never went there because they would usually go towards the opposit direction, but it was known as an area that was classified.
    She says that there were a lot of legends and weird anomalies in Russia like the natural human/animal rock formations and the cave where aparently only woman could enter, while men would disappear.
    But her knowledge is limited since she lived there only till the age of 13 before moving to the baltic states.

  • Noa Binnendijk
    Noa Binnendijk 3 місяці тому +4

    I think Ryan at some point halfway through the story forgot that the hypothetical asteroid didn't actually hit the earth's surface, but instead exploded in the air. The blast wave caused trees to be knocked over, sure, but I think it wouldn't cause a crater- at least, not a crater significant enough that it was still there nineteen years later. Minor holes smooth over all the time, and if it was really a bog, that could've contributed to the filling of a minor crater.

      @Amrita it’s essentially a plastic bucket with a piece of plastic and a rubber band where the bottom should be. When you pull back on it and then release, it sends a puff of air in the direction you’re pointing it. Totally harmless and slightly annoying at worst. 😂

    My eight grade history teacher once pulled one of those blast wave things out of his supply closet and proceeded to use it around the room. I need everyone to know Ryan is screaming over something that feels like a light breeze

    My favorite theory I've ever heard for the Tunguska event is that it was caused by a passing alien spaceship detecting an asteroid or meteorite and the crew choosing to sacrifice themselves by crashing into it before it hit the ground

    That's Tremendous, I have always felt compelled to pursue knowledge and power in order to contribute to the betterment of humanity. Been seeking a means to be influential and find out more knowledge about the human race and about the things not everyone is destined to know. I wish to fulfill the goal of enlightenment passed down by our forebears~

      I can totally relate to your passion, if all that is what you desire then i think it's achievable. Joining the Illuminatus Brotherhood can lead to the enlightenment you seek and more. I am well aware that the idea of this group may sound mythical but it is possible to join.

      Bartholet Bay 3 місяці тому +2

      @Margart Bochner Yeah I acknowledge that misunderstanding can occur when people encounter what they don't fully grasp, especially in this internet era. The Illuminatus advocates for the acceptance of all religions. You can look up "Anthony Szymon". Will give you clarity and answers to any questions you might have.

    There’s a class about conspiracy theories at my university. I didn’t take it but a few of my friends took it and it was apparently pretty interesting. However, I think these two goobers would be the best professors for that class. One is more of a nut case for theories and the other tries to stay down to earth. Both assess the arguments presented by students and everyone discusses them. Idk it probably wouldn’t work that well but I’d probably take it

    Just came here after watching this amazing French TV show called OVNI(s) aka UFOs, which has Tunguska play a pivotal roll in the show. They use the black hole theory to explain the event, which is for narrative purposes, but they do explain that a black hole the size of a marble could have the equivalent force of 40 nuclear bombs (that figure is off memory). If you can find the show, I highly recommend it to people, its like Stranger Things meets The X-Files with a light comedic tough to it - one of the best shows I've watched in years. And thought it was cool that they used this real event to tie into the show.
