Umm Macedonians are not Greek and we speak Macedonian which is different from Greek. In fact we even use different alphabets.
camiblack1 (4 months ago)
They mean the ancient Hellenic Macedonians, not the South Slavs that came into the area in the 5th century and took the name Macedonian. Hence North MAcedonia/Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. History not shoved into idiotic nationalistic revisionism says no the Macedonians of Alexanders time were Greek (or Hellenic more accurately) and the SLavs who call themselves Macedonians are johnny come latelies, relatively speaking.

Okay, Simon. I do enjoy almost all of your videos. I even enjoy these “...sounds like b.s. but are totally true” ones. I say I *even* enjoy these because so far I have known every single fact before seeing the videos. Since early childhood my favorite section of book stores and libraries has been the reference section. Still is. So, while I haven’t been surprised by any of the strange facts, I love your presentation of them. I like all of your videos, actually. You make them all fun to watch.

I love you videos and I'm subbed but Simon you often mispronounce words and I don't believe it's the accent since other Brits pronounce the same names and words you have properly. I've largely ignored these faux pas but Regina is pronounced Reh-gee-nuh not Reh-jyna , rhyming it with vagina and I've never heard anyone mess it up like that lol You do this for a living and while I'm sure I'll get flamed for nitpicking which I don't think this is, you are doing this professionally and it wouldn't take much to look into looking into pronouncing words you aren't sure about. If it bothers me and I'm still a fan then imagine the people you might lose out of the sheer petty reason you don't pronounced some words correctly, which often times are words of which people know the correct pronunciation.

#3 isn't even the most crazy thing about organ transplants. The people who get them often report gaining memorys that can only be explained as the memories of their doners they even begin liking the same food as them and as we found feel similar emotions. It's because your brain is the center of your nervous system but it goes throughout yiur entire body and you even have what can only be explained as "mini brains" in certain organs (usually ones that work involuntary) the second biggest (behind your actual brain) is on your heart and you can learn more about it by researching "neuro cardiology"

Umm Macedonia and Greece are two different places with very different cultures to refer to them as if they are the same place is ignorant. Greeks and Macedonians have different lineages also Macedonians are Slavic and Greeks are hellenic. The slavics and hellenics are completely different. To give you some perspective Russians is also Slavic. Now would you say Russians and Greeks are the same? Of course not. It is actually funny Macedonians have more in common with Russians then Greeks. Even the Macedonians main church is in Russia. Macedonians the majority are Russian orthodox Greeks on the other hand are Greek orthodox. Now the Greeks did try to subjugate the Macedonians and try to make them say they are Greek and tried to destroy Macedonian culture. Macedonians are different greatly so in fact and when people say they are Greeks it is mainly because of subjugation and ignorance about that subjugation and ignorance of what Macedonians culture and history is.
loser name user name (1 year ago)
Slavs weren't even in that region until much later. You are so off on your history of the region. The Greek Macedonia and the Republic of Macedonia are unrelated peoples. Only a miniscule section of the present day country's territory contains any of ancient Macedonia's territory. Pella, the capital of Alexander's Macedonia is closer to Thessaloniki and is within Greek territory. Slavs, which modern Macedonia's are, are closer to Bulgarians and their language is very closely related. The modern Macedonians are probably closer to Thracians or Getae than Greeks.
Nerdy punk (1 year ago)
Moribax85 also if something is the capital of a country how can it belong to another country that makes no sense. That is like saying Ottawa is Canada's capital then calling ottawa an American city.
Nerdy punk (1 year ago)
Moribax85 one more thing back 2000th years ago there was a Macedonia and they were not Greeks they might have been near Greek territories but Sparta and other Greek states which Macedonia was not hate Macedonians and considered them barbarians and below Greek states in stature. Alexander the great asked the Greeks to join him and the Greeks basically laugh and said no so Alexander's war machine made them join lol
Nerdy punk (1 year ago)
Moribax85 the reason why borders have changed is due to Macedonia being attacked numerous times. The Macedonian empire extended into Greece, Yugoslavia and other area making the now republic of Macedonia small however because Macedonia controlled all those areas at one point lots of Macedonians were left behind that doesn't mean they are not Macedonian just that over the years someone else took the land. When someone takes land it doesn't magically make all the people in that area no longer what they are and considered the same as the invading force. When Vikings attacked England and controlled certain areas those people were still English even though they were captured or lost to Vikings does not make those areas full of Vikings.

Cleopatra WAS Egyptian - born and bred. However her dynasty was from Macedonia after Alexander The Great's general Ptolemy, took over as top honcho of Egypt about 300 years before his great....x....great grand daughter sat on the throne. She was apparently the first one of her family to speak the 'common' Egyptian language - amongst a number of other languages. Unfortunately she was the last Pharaoh as the Romans made the country a Roman province after her suicide.
Merry Machiavelli (1 month ago)
Something that's also worth noting is that her family was absurdly inbred (seriously, unlike the Habsburgs, they married brother to sister as well as uncle to niece). It is so extreme that, counted one way, she has 1 pair of 4x great grandparents, where a normal person would have 32. So while normally, I would agree that very distant ancestry is pretty irrelevant, this case is something of an exception (although, there is a unchance some of her ancestors could be illegitimate.)
Moribax85 (1 year ago)
Cleopatra would be egyptian if she were born now, but at the time culture and family meant way more than location: she was born in a greek family, educated to greek culture and spoke greek on a daily basis, only using egyption to communicate with "lower classes". something similar still happens today with arab people: a person is born in the united states, he's born in an arab family, he learn arab culture, he's educated in that culture, all his friends are arab and goes to school in an arabic school, only using english when he has to communicate with the minority of non-arabs he frequents for work. would you call him american or arab? and would he call himself american or arab?
John La Duke (1 year ago)
About the point in #8 where you mention Canada importing beavers; we never exactly imported them, but fun fact... the whole reason they were fashioned as a "national animal" and a big Canadian symbol is that they were so endangered by the fur trade and almost wiped out. This whole love-the-beavers approach is one of the great examples of ecological disaster avoided, as there are now more beavers in North America than there were before Europeans got here.
cleveque (1 year ago)
The bit about Hitler is misleading. Sending a letter to the Nobel committee isn't much of a nomination, since anyone can do that and it doesn't mean that it was ever seriously considered. The naming of Hitler as Time's man of the year is true, but it was never meant as any kind of honour - it's a recognition that a person was in, or affected, the news more than anyone else, so it's really "newsmaker of the year". A lot of very unpleasant people have been given that title, including Khrushchev, Putin, and Khomeini. Hitler is constantly brought up to try to shame Time or show that Hitler had everyone fooled, which wasn't the case at all.

zephiro l (2 years ago)
Many people claim this for almost every transplantable body part, and there are many urban legends based around such circumstances. However none has been validated in any way, and in this case it is more likely the guy was suicidal on his own accord, and potentially decided to go out the same way as the other guy possibly to give a person the same chance he was given, or in remembrance to the life he was given by the first suicide person. But the much much more logical conclusion would be that nearly all suicides are done with a firearm to the head or from jumping from a high place, which it's likely as simple as that.
