It Took Way Longer IRL: History Of Earth In 90 Seconds

November 2, 2012


This is a video showing the history of earth from big bang to current day, all in a minute and a half video. In real life it took almost 10,000 times that long though -- maybe even 100,000. "You're an idiot." I have never passed a math class. The video was created using footage from a bunch of different movies and documentaries, and actually is worth a watch. I'm just not convinced it's an accurate portrayal of earth. Like, is this the REAL history of the earth, or is this the history of the earth the government wants us to believe? QUESTION EVERYTHING. The CIA bugged my shampoo bottle so they can listen to me sing in the shower. ♫ I'm scrubbing my butt and it feels funny, and I know you're listening Mr. Presideeent! ♫

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Elizabeth, who agrees the government will never release the REAL history of the earth because there were aliens involved. I knew it -- I KNEW IT!

  • Did I just miss it, or did they forget to note the shifting of the continents?

    Pretty sure they weren't trying to make this in an accurate time scale you nerds...

  • I didn't see the part with Adam and Eve. Haaaaaa.... just kidding... >.>

    History of the earth in 90 seconds and the Pammy/Tommy Lee video didn't feature. Major omission.

    To scale, assuming the video to be 97 seconds long, the earth 4 billion years old, and humans to have existed in their current form for 200,000 years... human history would cover the last 4.85 milliseconds.

    If you were to extend this video to play for a full 30 days, human history would cover the final two minutes.

    Man you like to crunch numbers lol, but it's interesting to see it instead of just hypothesising and guesstimating.

    I cried when the dinos were smashed by the asteroid

    How least write under the Spoiler Alert tag.Don't you care about breaking GW's little heart?
    I spend much of my spare time trying to delete that chapter from wikipedia or,at least, adding a big [citation needed],giving young people possibility to still hope...and for what?

  • Marcus Como

    Big Bang Theory does it better and has catchier music.

  • Steven Sanchez

    Big bang theory is a terrible show.

  • ZomBBombeR

    Your a terrible show!

  • Turbosloth

    Insert laugh track

  • One can learn so many things in one minute. This was an interesting video.

  • Kenlin Bros

    What a very humanocentric version of our history.

    If this were a flat scale, dinosaurs wouldn't even appear before the last second.

  • Matthew Little

    Humans are humanocentric. The video would've been more boring (in my opinion) if it didn't show us shooting crap into space in the end. Since it's literally the most important thing we've ever done as a species.

  • T_Eye

    I was thinking the exact same thing. There should be one photo of a human pretty much.

    But we're humans, so you have go by wat you know.
