      @MovieBuff when the went to a hospital for some historical pandemic (tuberculosis I think) the we talking about the big grave and how many died and Shane was like I sense it will happen again soon. He is a demon so he probably knew cause of that.

      Watch puppet history. Shane isn't on it, but the Professor has a very similar teaching vibe. I think Shane learned his from him, actually!

    it’s hard to imagine an asteroid traveling at 33,500 mph, but thank god Shane told us to imagine a jar of peanut butter traveling at 33,500 mph. really puts things into perspective

      what's heavier a kilogram of peanut butter or a kilogram of feathers?

    • Bog Bastard
      Bog Bastard 4 months ago +39

      his humor is really advanced sometimes, honest. it's a great way to say "human beings can't comprehend something this fast." and he followed it up with "human beings can't comprehend something this LARGE moving this fast." right after, but he was able to make a throughline for the two statements to flow better. while also making it pretty humorous, and giving pause to people who didn't quite get it. "wait, what?" humor is a favorite of mine.

  • Ria C
    Ria C Month ago +34

    My roommate once said that it's absolutely wild to them that Shane and Ryan only met for the first time as adults because they have the vibe of two friends who grew up together into one of those shared braincell friendships.

  • Panzer Man
    Panzer Man 3 months ago +414

    Love that Ryan and Shane casually forgot that after World War I, the was an entire *revolution* and upheaval of the Russian government, meaning that a government funded expedition into a remote and sparsely inhabited area was MAYBE not a top priority for a while.

    • CaptainRasmot
      CaptainRasmot 2 months ago +24

      Technically the revolution happened *after* World War 1, but Russia was also kinda mired in a number of smaller wars at the time, especially when it came to Poland and Ukraine (ironically enough). That and Russia was ruled by a Czar so scientific ventures were not *exactly* top priority back then. Though also love how they forget that Siberia is an absolute hellish Tundra to get through. So it more than makes sense that their pace was slowed to a crawl.

  • Nicole Kharlamova

  • Leah Smith

    As a science student, I think I got too focused on the science to properly enjoy the mystery and whimsy of this episode, but I'm really happy to see the boys changing it up and exploring mysteries beyond true crime! I'm really excited for the rest of this season (and hopefully more to come)!

    Shane's repeated reuse of the peanut butter analogy in spite of it reliably and clearly not working is a mood.

  • ReiTheCS
    ReiTheCS 3 months ago +202

    This was a really fun video!
    I was curious so I asked my mom who used to live in Krasnoyarsk and would go with her grandpa to the tundra when she was a little kid if she remembered anything about this. She told me apparently she remembers that a lot of people who would specificly go to those areas say that "the trees would move from one place to another" she herself never went there because they would usually go towards the opposit direction, but it was known as an area that was classified.
    She says that there were a lot of legends and weird anomalies in Russia like the natural human/animal rock formations and the cave where aparently only woman could enter, while men would disappear.
    But her knowledge is limited since she lived there only till the age of 13 before moving to the baltic states.

    If you're wondering how 80 million trees could be flattened like that, imagine 80 million jars of peanut butter being slammed into the ground.

    • Beelzemobabbity
      Beelzemobabbity 3 months ago +33

      @TopNotchAdvicei think it’s definitely a different experience. The unsolved series in general had a more, intimate feeling? This is more casual i think, in part because they said they were going ti do more non murder mysteries.

  • Noa Binnendijk
    Noa Binnendijk 4 months ago +4

    I think Ryan at some point halfway through the story forgot that the hypothetical asteroid didn't actually hit the earth's surface, but instead exploded in the air. The blast wave caused trees to be knocked over, sure, but I think it wouldn't cause a crater- at least, not a crater significant enough that it was still there nineteen years later. Minor holes smooth over all the time, and if it was really a bog, that could've contributed to the filling of a minor crater.

      @Amrita it’s essentially a plastic bucket with a piece of plastic and a rubber band where the bottom should be. When you pull back on it and then release, it sends a puff of air in the direction you’re pointing it. Totally harmless and slightly annoying at worst. 😂

      As a kid, I got blasted with one of those things by an employee at the exploratorium. I never got over it cos I felt like it was an overreaction. Until I went again after college and an employee did this to me again. that shit was just as wild as when I was a kid 😂. When you KNOW it’s coming it’s totally fine but when someone surprises you, it’s so ASDSGSJSKKLA

      I adore how intrigued and mouthy Ryan is too. He’s that one kid that asks questions and becomes a playful smartass when the teacher doesn’t know or the answer he was given doesn’t make any sense.

    I wonder if Shane just had a wind cannon on hand, went to the creative team, and asked, "What episode topic can we use as an excuse to shoot Ryan with this?"

    My favorite theory I've ever heard for the Tunguska event is that it was caused by a passing alien spaceship detecting an asteroid or meteorite and the crew choosing to sacrifice themselves by crashing into it before it hit the ground

    There’s a class about conspiracy theories at my university. I didn’t take it but a few of my friends took it and it was apparently pretty interesting. However, I think these two goobers would be the best professors for that class. One is more of a nut case for theories and the other tries to stay down to earth. Both assess the arguments presented by students and everyone discusses them. Idk it probably wouldn’t work that well but I’d probably take it

    My eight grade history teacher once pulled one of those blast wave things out of his supply closet and proceeded to use it around the room. I need everyone to know Ryan is screaming over something that feels like a light breeze

    Shane's such a great presenter. It's crazy that we haven't seen him present anything since Ruining History.
    He should collab with the Professor some day.

    While an asteroid air-blast is the most likely culprit, I really appreciate the comet theory. The idea that we can only find the scantest trace elements because much of what hit the planet was absorbed into the surrounding nature due to being water and ice is an amusing "magic bullet" scenario to me.

      He deffo dropped a lot of acid back in the day 😂 but he was eccentric and we loved him. Absolutely 😂

    Just came here after watching this amazing French TV show called OVNI(s) aka UFOs, which has Tunguska play a pivotal roll in the show. They use the black hole theory to explain the event, which is for narrative purposes, but they do explain that a black hole the size of a marble could have the equivalent force of 40 nuclear bombs (that figure is off memory). If you can find the show, I highly recommend it to people, its like Stranger Things meets The X-Files with a light comedic tough to it - one of the best shows I've watched in years. And thought it was cool that they used this real event to tie into the show.

    I'm so glad that Shane will be presenting as well because we get gems like the Referentially Useless Peanut Butter Jar, "One Big Bitch," the RUPBJ again, "and probably some squirrels and shit," and Ryan begging for his life vs. Shane with an air blaster.

    That intro is really a banger. Also didn't they say the area was a bog or a marshy area? Maybe due to the soft soil a lot of it filled in if the crater wasn't very deep.

    How about the air burst event that happened in Russia ten years ago? It was a much smaller object, but we heard and saw a similar pattern of destruction to the Tunguska event.
