This video promises "60 epic facts that show why the world is awesome" – and while it's presented by a veritable who's-who of geeky YouTube channel hosts, we'd be lying if we told you we weren't pretty skeptical at the outset. Seven minutes and thirty seconds later, we have to admit: that was pretty epic.


The video features Veritasium, Ze Frank, Vsauce2, Wheezy Waiter, SixtySymbols, Periodic videos, Sorted Food and Head Squeeze in collaboration with the folks at Earth Unplugged, and we were damn impressed by how many of these facts we hadn't heard before. Some stuff we were familiar with: Cooking's affects on early human evolution; the remarkable scale of the microbiome; and the borderline superpowers of the naked mole rat.
