Definitely go to Chernobyl!!!
31:34 "unnamed country road number 4" - um acksually it's country road number 26, east of the intersection with country road number 21. Just south of I-80. Fun easter egg hunt
The question is...would you consider this a reaction video if it was anyone other than grey reacting?
It is public now, without membership?
59:42 oh so like north korea
Scotland has three arms
Is that a UK accent? Sounds like American accent to me,
"Bunkers"? You mean trailers.
Wow you're saying that you can't bring drugs onto an active nuclear test site. What a surprise.
"Tekoi" means "words" or "language" in my language (Palauan) in case anyone cared
1:06:25 In the chat, right? We've got a town called Wendover where the most prominent thing is an airfield? I think we've found where Wendover Productions is based
43:00 bottom chat comment, an important note is made
anyone else just feel like exploring an old forgotten military base
1:02 Thanks, Glucose.
Chernobyl is safe and has been safe for years. they have organized tours there. As long as you dont go into the reactor building yourself (you cant anymore since the new domes construction) you are fine. There are people living there.
The unlocking gate message was clear, some people are just unattentive and missed parts of video.
Tekoi project - just another excuse to complain about tumbleweed.
Grey: in a good mood Grey's phone: how bout no
Where is your video about why you never own land? Why did you take it down?
0:10 notices tumbleweed
Hi poor innocent grey who didnt know what was coming
You could probably buy one left untouched in an abandoned Russian base and then ship it over here.
Current minutemen missiles only have 1 warhead per missile
I just got back from Tekoi. I took my family and my daughter's friend. They loved it.
CGP Grey sounds like he could be my science teacher.
Waitwaitwaitwaitwait he has a discord?!
Aren't you going to pin a note that D5 rocket engines are actually Trident engines, not Minuteman engines?
i think it’s wrong
here after grey said 'my video about the supreme court' RBG is dead thooo so that's a whole new thing
Well bye kristoff left the chat
Y its have no animation
OK ok ok
Did is old chat
To get a brief history of Hercules listen to "Hercules" by Watsky
It took me a while to watch this. Much enjoyed.
Animators man, that's some next level visual. Super impressive
I refuse to play catan. I don't have a youtube video to teach me.
So, now I want a video about how countries communicate that they are actually disarming, that sound interesting. But really enjoyed this video (and the other Tekoi video) as well.
I have no idea how I ended up watching this. :D But that was intriguing.
Hercules exploded Haha I caught that cause they exploded in more was then one
It’s so awesome to get such a direct insight into your creative process, thanks for making these
Chernobyl is absolutely safe to visit. Well, unless you're moving there or planning to look at what had left of nuclear reactor No 4 directly. A one day visit wouldn't do more harm them flight from London to Kyiv. Just bring water and food with you and wash your clothes after the visit (of throw it away if you feel especially suspicious)
At one point in the 50s, the U.S. filmed a group of bombers flying in a staggered formation. The groups would fly back and pass the camera again to make it look like the U.S. bomber fleet was huge. The ussr believed it and built a huge fleet of their own that ended up being much bigger than the American fleet.
Ultimately this is a very boring test site and video.
Dude the Video made it seem like you found the key there in that little checkpoint building
wait, people thought he took the badge? like Grey, the guy who hates mementos of all kinds, hates souvenirs, etc... that guy... took a badge?
whats the discorrd
Others may have already mentioned it, but in reference to Chernobyl and safety: Unless you are licking things, or go to some very specific hot spots, its mostly safe now if you stay on the roads or other hard surfaces that have been repeatedly washed down by the weather. Deep in the forests its a few % "hotter" because the cleanup crew couldn't get everything, and there are a few waste dumps where equipment is piled up that are places you dont want to hang around, but in general its basically equivalent to a couple of international flights at most. Obviously inside the sarcophagus or the hospital basement (where all the clothing of the firefighters was dumped) is not a wise place to go, but the rest, is just a deserted city. There are plenty of videos of tours showing the rad levels of various places, and its all just fractionally above regular background level.
Is this cgp Grey bread because it is stale
I don't know why no one is saying this, but there is an extremely distracting high pitched noise throughout the whole video
Now one Wants to see this poop 💩 video
That was a great video Grey, amazing to see all of the behind the scenes work that went into making a video for your channel. The amount of value placed on the 'look' of a graph or feeling evoked by an image is extraordinary to hear from the creators perspective. So much content is taken in relatively passively and it is very meaningful to hear about the parts you kept and unfortunately made the hard decision to cut.
bunkers already look in perfect condition we just live like that and to these days
Who is here from the new vid
33:22 "The Glory of America" Video
People are weird. Feeling guilty for watching a video the author decided to make public because other videos like this isn't public... What is the reasoning behind these comments? It is like saying you feel guilty for trying a membership when the company offers it to make you test the product.
31:00 It's interesting but certainly not unusual, that a lot of these silos as seen from Google Earth, look exactly the same, down to the slight angle of the buildings and precise placement of utility poles, fences and other features.
Great clip ♥♥! As a fellow ISsoftsr, I am always looking for creative ideas! Nice Job!
Wow, you're really staying *inside* because of the virus? Well, I hope you feel "safe". Stay safe. 🙄
I remember Noah Caldwell-Gervais made a vlog on the nuclear history tour and he did visit Wendover airfield which he mentioned was where the pilots that dropped the bombs in WW2 were trained. If you want to know more about this specific part of American History I highly recommend his channel.
What is the carbon footprint of the military industrial complex?
Maybe a US/UK English thing... I'd call them portacabins rather than bunkers. The latter suggests an underground shelter or above-ground reinforced concrete shelter.
I mean showing the key is also an eccelent way for everyone curious to go there to make their own right? But with master-lock its very hit or miss, it could have been a skeleton/bump key that just unlocks it anyway.
If I had to guess the "Sporting Goods" section of Alliant Techsystems is probably just Civilian Market firearms because many of those count as sporting goods under US law. P.S. yeah Alliant Techsystems Made (Breaths) Center Fire Rifles, Rim Fire Rifles, Shotguns, Ammunition, Optics, Hunting and Sports shooting Accessories, and Gunpowder for Re-loading ammo. All of which were considered under "Sporting Goods"
Grey is clearly very happy about the minuteman animation, but the corrected trident animation is even more impressive.
I'm not the only one hearing that high pitched noise am I?
damn Closed Captions... they translate DECOY instead of Tekoi and it messes my brain when watching this video.
can anyone post the Catan video? I don't know what is he talking about. I did search but couldn't find anything...
640 dollars for the death of a mere worker? What an outrage, how will our glorious job creators who are lootign billions possibly keep creatign jobs under such draconian rules and fines? /s
Thank you for making this video public!
I like how the first thing that came out of this huge trip for multiple projects was the thing on tumbleweeds
The discord chat is the real highlight of this video.
Those Soviets...they look so normal.
Are people not getting the joke for taking the badge? These people are why we need kill squads.
light grey... didnt notice... will you add 49 other shades of Grey?
(35:45) Is that not Peter Graves from the CBS television series Mission Impossible voicing that American propaganda footage?
You will get more radiation flying to Kiev than you will walking around Pripyat and Chernobyl itself. It’s honestly one of the coolest places I’ve been to both from a science and historical perspective.
Alliant Techsystems split off the sporting goods into Vista Outdoor before merging with Orbital Sciences Corporation into Orbital ATK, which in turn then got subsumed into Northrop Grumman. Vista Outdoor has several brands related to gun related sporting equipment, including: Bushnell, specialised in optics CCI Ammunition/Cascade Cartridge and Federal Premium, both ammunition producers Alliant Powder, making smokeless powder As well as Jimmy Styks, making standup paddleboards and accessories, and several other brands both related to gun sports, and other sporting equipment. All of my information comes from about 5 minutes of Wikipedia, so I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this info
Thank-you for the awesome in-depth perspective, Grey. I really have so much respect for you and your team. Keep up the great work!
Thank you and your team!
regarding 31:00 When Google Earth was new, I could input "ICBM" into the search and ALL these sites would pop up, both in the USA and Russia! It was weird to see a big circular clear cutting of the trees with a tiny little shed in a little forest outside of Boston. Years later I tried to look it up again and not "ICBM" only yields museums. I even tried looking for the patch... but have a feeling it was painted over with tree texture...
These little nuggets like the bunkers, the photos, and Tekoi are what make the world a more beautiful and interesting place. It's just really cool to think about the fact that you guys uncovered some information that otherwise would have been lost, and that you'll be leaving a little nugget of your project in this town in Utah for other people to enjoy this obscure Soviet-era story.
50 minutes in, talking about disarming publicly by destroying planes somewhere spy satellites could see them. "Even if you have bombers hidden elsewhere, you're still incurring such a huge cost for each plane." Flash forward a few decades and America spends more on the military than the next 13 countries combined, pouring trillions of dollars into planes that would never be able to fly, having factories continue to churn out tanks and other weapons of war that the army is begging you to stop, because they neither want nor need them, and they are just going to be sent to rust, unused in a desert. But the politicians will continue telling the factories to produce, because they get votes from the people employed by the factories in their district and they get bribed by the weapons manufacturers who get a lot of tax money for building useless weapons. Sure politicians could use that tax money to help their community, but by directing the flow to the pockets of billionaires, they get a lovely little kickback to help support their coke habits
Short... looks at video length, 1h and 13 mins
Back then, you could get a college education for $640 though, so...
38:10 "Russia, in the meantime, not hampered by having to police the world..." Wow what a quote. Does anyone have the full video from the clip Grey plays here?
Fun fact: in the Soviet Union they did the exact same thing regarding war propaganda, saying they were the good guys fighting imperialism. Not sure about the hues, but actually red is the color which represent Russia nowadays and the SSSR back in the day, so I suppose they portrayed USA in shades of gray (most Soviet TV sets were black and white, by the way.)
Congrats CGP Grey, I can't believe I watched this entire thing, you are an engagement wizard!
I love that by watching this now I want to support the patreon to watch all of the commentaries, it's like a sample for us to know how patreon is like
Odd use of the word 'bunker'. You seemed to mean the Soviet trailers. British term would be caravan. I've never heard 'bunker' used as a synonym for trailer or caravan.
“This Tekoi project turned out to be a whole thing”; that was Past Greys problem... Looks easy now (sarcasm).
FYI this is public, something else is coming
This is long... I love it
I've rewatched the tekoi video more than a few times because there's something mysterious about the tone Idk why.
As interesting as Tekoi is, seeing the pictures of the Russians humanizes the place or topic very much. I remember growing up during the last years of the Cold War. Yes, there was genuine fear about nuclear war and invasions from the Soviets, but at the same time there was this exciting awe to meet Russians and Soviets in person. In my hometown, which is also a college town, a ballet company from the USSR performed, and both the host and the guests had a blast meeting one another. Before they left, they gave the hosts Ushanka hats, and the hosts gave cowboy hats to them in return. The humanizing experience kept the town abuzz after the ballet company left to continue the tour. So, seeing these pictures in the videos makes me wonder, "Who are these men? What are their names? What did they think coming to Tekoi? What were they feeling once the inspections were done? Did they have parties or picnics with the Americans?" The story can go on forever.
