Videos explaining things. Mostly over topics like history, geography, economics and science.
We believe that the world is a wonderfully fascinating place, and you can find wonder anywhere you look. That is what our videos attempt to convey.
Currently, I try my best to release one video every week. Bear with me :)


  • PSA guys. Being best or worst at something doesn’t mean it’s good or bad. That’s all

  • Wow the best thing my state has is teeth And my teeth are yellow asf

  • 3:25 "Maine has the lowest crime rate." ... "Maine is the least diverse state with a 94% White population." (That's not a "Worst", btw.) The former is the result of the latter.

  • We got meth labs.................... BUT WE’RE GOOD AT BASKETBALL!!!

  • 4:19 almost watched with my grandma

  • Me in Kansas. Guy: grows th most wheat. Me:That's right you need us! Guy:But has a birth rate of -1% Me: Okay, I was expecting something bad and that's true Guy: And it has the ugliest scenery Me: Oh c'mon you didn't have to insult us. You already said are bad thing a now you're just making fun of us.😒😒😒

  • Explain to me how there’s more people in Rhode Island than Wyoming wtf

  • Why did they only say positive things about Maine?


  • I live in Idaho. I think the people who like it here are sick. There's no attractions, no rain, so much hate, and the police suck. Well, at least the stupid people in Calofornia haven't all moved in yet, forcing us to destroy more of our land to build fucking houses and crashing us into more of an economic pit :(

  • The reason half of Louisiana’s residents are in jail is because no one pays child support, no one actually has a fishing license, and everyone drinks and drives (boats and lawnmowers mostly) this is all based on my point of view in the south

  • Least crime rate and and has the most whites. Anyone else catching a trend here?

  • They said @ 4:20 the State of Mississippi watches the most Porn? So you Bastards are watching us that is an Invasion of Privacy and may require a visit to my Attorney thanks for the info

  • I didn't hear a positive for Florida...

  • What the fuck I live in Kansas and I can vouch for it that it has some of the most beautiful landscape in America.

  • The worst thing about Minnesota the weather. We get use to the negative blow snow storms.

  • 4 out of the top ten cities in the US for worst Air Pollution are located in Oregon. So there's that.

  • I have the best bicycles and the worst snails. But I have lived here in Washington my whole life and I have only seen like 2 snails.

  • Who lives in maine?

  • Minnesota does not have below sixty winters it’s only about 15 below on the coldest days

  • Georgia has the worst traffic? oh yes. I live in the state and every morning i always see a wreck going to school/work

  • PFFFT.. Nvm is not the worst state to raise a family in. Most of the kids here are the most respectful people ever. You have to live here to know what it’s like not just visit. Same goes for a lot of other states and country’s.

  • Wisconsin is such a boring ass state.

  • You forgot Alabama

  • Florida’s best thing is that it’s the flattest? Sad

  • How is having a state that is 94% white bad?


  • You forgot that Oregon has this weird uncle that has a tourist attraction and this little triangle dude ;) If you get the reference then type “GF4L”

  • I will not lie. I live in Delaware and the things to do are better to in spring and summer and even fall but it’s still cold

  • WV resident commentator: obesity and drugs are repetitive critical facts. It’s also a fact we have developed programs to give more opportunity for healthy living styles. Research shows it’s typically harder to seek positives when negatives are obvious but I believe each state to its own has something positive to provide. In WV many of us enjoy exploring nature as approximately 75% of our state is covered in forestry(% will change based on building development and other factors). Many of us enjoy activities such as white water rafting/kayaking/canoeing, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, snowboarding/skiing/sled riding, touring historic caves, riding steam engines through the hills via scheduled tours, crafts such as handmade furniture from trees in our state, learning to play a variety of instruments with bluegrass types being most popular, attending festivals/fairs/events such as Bridge Day and a Hot Air Balloon Festival. Cheers to you and your state:)
