  • You're right! Several months ago it dawned on me why even though the Civil War was 160 years ago, people with an average life span of around 70 years, technically the Civil War was less than 3 lifespans ago, and the Revolutionary War was less than 4 lifespans ago. It sounds like a long, long time ago, but 3 lifespans make it sound much closer in time. There are people alive today whose grandparents or great-grandparents were around during the Civil War. 3 lifespans can influence the thinking of at least 6-9 generations with 2-3 generations per average lifespan. More if they live longer. No wonder prejudices are so hard to eradicate.

  • Hey, Coment section. PringleGun here, and I have a question. Why does Micheal say hey to Vsauce at the begining of the video and not to the viewer. I am not from an english speaking country and that is the reason I dont know if this is some form of adresing your presence or something, like I did when I started the question. I don't know if someone understood that question.

  • 17:32 I think I've experienced something similar. I always felt like the people back when painting was the only thing available (So no photography) must have looked different, because painters gave them all a certain look for some reason. When films get made about baroque times for example I catch myself feeling the temporary actors we have today must look very different from the people back then. But of course, except from different fashions and nutritional factors, people have always looked more or less the same.
