Soviet Cartoons Are Weird – The Strangest Soviet Film

What I’ve been doing lately, and I really don’t want to be judged for this, is watching old Soviet cartoons. The Soviets were never known for their art.

3 Mysterious Animals Science Can’t Explain

Some people are animal lovers – well I’m an animal hater. Not all animals deserve respect. I dislike kangaroos. First of all they’re arrogant, and no creature with feet that big should have such terrible arms. I also dislike geese and hippos are dumb too. But not all animals should be killed. Some of them […]

Inside Russia’s Secret Radio Station – UVB-76

Russia is the world’s most interesting country… and the reason for that is vodka. It is also because Russia is inherently mysterious. Many westerners have spent their lived attempting to understand Russia, usually only to ultimately fail. Winston Churchill himself once called Russia “A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma”.

10 Maps To Change How You See America

I’ve made a lot of content centered on the United States. It’s not because I think it’s an interesting country – or that there are important stories from it that need to be told. No, neither of those are true. In truth it’s because most of my audience are American. That’s the only reason. In […]
