If you’ve ever wondered how North Korea got to be the secretive, repressed, communist nation it is today this video does a great job of explaining its complex history, detailing the events that lead to the tragic state that exists at the very fringes of world politics.
Feeling sprightly today? Like the world’s your oyster and nothing can get you down? Well it’s time for a reality check as this video looks at the devastating medical, environmental, and humanitarian consequences of an all out nuclear war. It’s pretty grim stuff as you’d expect, so all the more reason for the world’s leaders to come together and rid the globe of their existence. Yeah, like that’s gonna happen.

“Beth” is a song by KISS and is about the wife of a band member who calls him up during practice and asks when he’s coming home. But he’s not coming home, because he’s going to be jamming all night long. Here the song gets turned into a funny short film that every guy who’s ever been out late can relate to. And it’s full of great 1976 period detail too.
If you’ve seen the Hunger Games and Divergent, chances are you had to double take when watching the latter, so similar is its premise.

‘Computers have more sense than atheists’ goes the comments in this hilarious video that sees actor Alan Cummings read out someone’s thoughts from a Christian forum — someone who thinks that their computer is intentionally calling out their actions when they try to delete the ten commandments and the machine questions the legality of such an act. But then, if it says so in the bible, it must be true, right?

Jackie Chan starred in the Bruce Lee classic Enter the Dragon and here he recounts coming into contact with the kung-fu master, whilst filming a fight scene, who slaps him round the face with a stick and was meant to miss, but instead it hit him, sending him into a dizzy spin. But the good news, he got to hang out with the martial arts legend for a little longer as Bruce was nothing but apologetic.
Dom Mazzetti schools us all in how to take your shirt off—sure you may think you know how to do such a thing, but trust me, you don’t. Which is where Dom comes in, enlightening us all in how to remove your top in the most bro way possible.
OK, enough cat videos and people falling over in kids’ playgrounds, it’s time to contemplate math and whether or not it exists or whether humanity dreamt it up and has been wrapped up in our own creation ever since. It’s like a math class but if the cast of Inception were your teachers. We need to go deeper and reach your inner-geek.

Harry Main takes to his bike and starts giving it the Charlie big potatoes as he performs stunts that would take most of us 50 billion years to master. But not Harry, Harry was born riding a BMX, he rode out of his mother’s womb and off he went out the hospital to pull tricks down the local park.
Filmmaker Dan Toth takes a tour of his local neighborhood, Sunnyside in Queens, New York City—and he does the cardinal sin of filming in portrait, but he’s forgiven because he uses it to create a triptych of images that reference one another.
A tracking camera that never stops, down a hospital corridor, then through a photograph, into a man’s t-shirt — it just doesn’t care where it goes, so long as it keeps on until it ends up back in the place where it started. It is just like some strange dream you might have and then wake up all excited to bore everyone with.
