The quarks are now happily married in groups of three called a proton, or a neutron, and there's something else flying around too that wants to join in but can't because it's still too

Who is the Buddha? This guy, who sat under a tree for so long that he figured out how to ignore the fact that we're all dying You could make a religion out of this – I aspire to be like that, to sit under a tree so long I just forget that we're all dying (glass shattering) – (Wurtz) Whoops, China just broke, but while it was breaking, Confucius was figuring out how to have good morals Hey, China put itself back together again with good morals as their main philosophy

Actually, they have three main philosophies – "Go with the flow!" – "[Bleep] you, obey the law" – (Wurtz) "Hey," said the Romans – I feel like I need to write this down – (Wurtz) "Thanks for invading our homeland," said the Jews, who are starting to get tired of people invading their homeland

"Hi, everything's great," said some guy who seems to be getting very popular, and is then arrested and killed for being too popular, which only makes him more popular You could make a religion out of this – (laughing) Jesus! Jesus Christ! – I was wondering when Jesus was gonna show up – (Wurtz) "Hi, I live in the Roman Empire and I was wondering ♪ Is loving Jesus legal? ♪ – (giggling) – (Wurtz) No Actually, okay, sure, said Constantine, moving the capital way over here to be closer to his ♪ Main rival ♪ Don't worry about Rome It won't fall ♪ It's the Golden Age of India ♪ ♪ (muzak) ♪ – That intermission was very needed ♪ (muzak) ♪ – That intermission was not long enough – (Wurtz) On the top of a mountain, the real God whispers in Mohammed's ear, so he goes down to the cube where everyone worships gods and he tells them their gods are all fake

– How long would it take to make these videos? – (Wurtz) You could make a religion out of this, and maybe conquer the world as well – I couldn't watch this for 20 minutes – (Wurtz) Somehow, the Pope is still the Pope, plus there's ♪ New kingdoms all over Europe ♪ I wonder if there's room for moors – (cracking up) – (Wurtz) Here's all the wisdom – Oh, it was a pun – (Wurtz) The Pope is ready to make some more emperors of the Roman Empire, the Holy Roman Empire It's actually Germany, but don't worry about it

New kingdoms! (robotic voice) Christianize all the kingdoms! – Whoa! Where did that come from? – (robotic voice) Christianize all the kingdoms! – (Wurtz) The Christians are doing a great job of re-conquering Iberia, which will soon be called Spain – Oh, the Christians are back – (Wurtz) "Please remain Christian We will check in later to see if you're still Christian when you at least expect" – (laughing) – (Wurtz) Whoops, half of Europe just died

♪ Bing ♪ China's back – (chuckling) "Bing!" – (Wurtz) Oh, Italy's really rich Time for them to care a lot about art– – Oh, art! – (Wurtz) It's kind of like a rebirth Here's a printer! Let's make books "Wait," said Christopher Columbus, probably smoking crack

– (spluttering) – "If the world is round, let's go this way to India" So he sails– – Oh, we're about to head over to America! – (Wurtz) and Japan

Let's draw a line to decide who gets which half of the world The Aztecs and Inca empires are off to a great start I wonder if they know that Europe just discovered their continent Guess where all the sugar's made? In Brazil! Stolen– – Well, thank you, Brazil, for making sugar – (Wurtz) Britian and France are having a friendly discussion about who should control the entire world, more specifically, Ohio

And that escalates into a seven year discussion – Why couldn't my school be like this? – All the classes I've skipped in history class, it's really hitting me right now – (Wurtz) Guess who's broke? Also Britian

So they start taxing the hell out of America "[Bleep] you," says America, declaring their independence– – (cracking up) Oh my god – (Wurtz) And France helps them win Now France is broke Britain will have to send their prisoners to a different continent

Wait, if France is broke, why do the king and queen still wear such fancy dresses? – That's a good point – (Wurtz) "Let's overthrow the palace and cut all their heads off" – That's the Revolution

– The French Revolution! – (Wurtz) cutting everybody's head off until someone eventually got mad and cut his head off You could make a reli– no, don't

Let's just keep it cool and spy on each other instead – (chuckling) "Let's spy on each other instead" – (Wurtz) Let's check the mail Surprise! It's on the computer Wanna learn everything? Surprise! It's on the computer

– Okay, we're catching up – (Wurtz) which is in your pocket

– Oh my god – (Wurtz) By the way, where the hell are we? ♪ (electronic music) ♪ – "I hope I mentioned everything" – Wow, that was a good video – This is all you need before every history final – I'm curious to see what the 20 minute version is like because that was so much information, so I could only imagine

– It's kind of emotional When you watch it all together like that, you're like, wow, a lot of stuff has happened on Earth – I've been waiting so long to have another video from this guy Thank you for sharing this with me – (FBE) So that video was called History of the Entire World, I Guess, by creator Bill Wurtz

– Dude, Bill did a good job It's a cool video – (FBE) This video got millions of views in its first day of being released and was number one on the trending page the day it uploaded Why do you think this video went so viral? – Why? I mean, it went viral because it's absolutely nuts You got to think about how long this guy took to make that video

– It's so ridiculous It's so internet humor, and it's educational – It just cuts out all of the stuff you don't, I guess, necessarily need to know This is like super to-the-point highlights – His humor style is pretty unique, but it also is very internet to me

Good use of memes, I would say Good meme-ing – It hits the education and it hits the humor and it literally makes the rounds really fast, every few seconds – It was interesting to see how history kind of just repeats itself over and over again, and right now, the world is extremely politically charged Now, with social media, not only are things happening as they always have, but we're all extremely aware

– There's a comedic aspect to it, but he broke down the history of the world, which– it's long and complicated, let's be honest, but he simplified it It's really good I feel like I got to go watch the rest of his videos Does he have more videos, or is that the only one? He does have more videos? Okay, time to start binge watching – As a kid, you learn social studies and history, and it's such a dreaded course

Looking back at it, it's so simplified and you understand cause and effect way more, and it's fun and it feels like you're on drugs, and you don't even have to take drugs – The way that he's telling it too, with comedy and all this stuff put together, it just keeps everything interesting This is what they should teach at schools, and they should give this information to babies – (FBE) A lot of people are saying that this would actually be helpful to show to students as a more interesting way to learn then, say, a traditional lecture Do you think you could really learn from this? – I think kids can learn from it

Honestly, teachers are showing kids YouTube videos now – If it was slowed down and, you know, targeted more specific things, like more in-depth, then that could work – Just replace all of our educational systems with these videos I learned more in two twenty minutes videos on his channel than I did in the entirety of my high school history – It's a really good review, actually, because I remember in school, they would show you those videos that were supposed to be a nicer view and they were so boring that you'd just fall asleep and any time you can make anything fun, it's going to be much more– well, it's going to sink in because people actually pay attention

– It almost creates an interest and excitement to where it was almost like a touch points, to where there were certain points where he mentioned something like this I'm like, oh, I'm more interested about that There's always ways to integrate what's happening on YouTube and online and on the internet into what's going on in the classroom – (FBE) So finally, educational content has exploded on YouTube over the last seven years, and here's an example of someone doing it in a very unique way, and it's starting to gain a huge following What do you think about the edutainment side of YouTube? – Oh, I'm a big fan of edutainment

– Social media is a huge thing right now and I feel like everybody should be leaning towards social media Instead of just reading a big ass textbook, you kind of watch a video and people will remember it more – If you ask anybody how they learned to video edit, how they learned to do this, how they learned to change a tire on a car, 99% of the time, what do they say? It's not school It's YouTube – I follow a lot of channels that summarize a lot of history, science, all that stuff

This person is giving their own twist, in their own words, versus sounding like a textbook, so I think it has a lot of charm with information – When you can kind of tie the learning into the entertainment that's happening, I think then it's really a win-win situation because you're learning something, plus you're being entertained by it, and it's a really great platform where you can really do that in a very comprehensive way – Thank you so much for watching this episode of YouTubers React – If you want to be further edutained, check out the YouTubers in the description and give them a subscribe – Au revior! – Hey, guys, what's up? I'm Kyle, a producer here at FBE

– And I'm Alyssa, an editor here at FBE, and thank you guys so much for watching this video – And we hope that this was the best goodbye in the history– – The history– – The history of the entire world – The whole world!
