Misery, Interrupted by the Occasional War: The Last 100 Years in 10 Minutes

As we prepare to close the book on another year, YouTube user derDon1234 threw together a quick look back at the last 100 years of history — conveniently compacted into 10 minutes. While interesting it’s, uh, not exactly uplifting. In fact, it’s nearly all wars and explosions, with a few sporting events thrown in for good measure. Also, only one woman was apparently noteworthy enough to make the cut — and it’s Lewinksy. So, while deeply flawed, its a sobering reminder of how far we’ve come. See the video after the break, but be forewarned that it does contain some graphic images, so watch at your own discretion.
