200 Years Of US History (Must See Gif)

A QUICK LOOK AT PARTS OF US HISTORY AND THE GEOGRAPHIC GROWTH OF THE NATION


While tooling around the web last night, I come across and interesting gif. Alvin Melathe posted (curated) a gif that shows how the young US grew territoriality and subsequently developed into states. There are references to US History, but they are slight with major omissions from the developer of the gif. Bit, we have to realize the developer's mission was the gif itself, not to accomplish the impossible via an archive of US History.

I like finding knowledge bombs on the Internet that detonate in your mind, creating massive explosions of insight and laughter. Other things I like besides torturing bad metaphors: warm laundry, social movements, and making your bar chatter more interesting. Like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter to make creative chipmunk insults at my expense.


If this whole show is moving a little too quickly for you, here it is broken down frame-by-frame.

If you want a perspective from Melathe, I have linked the page here.



H/T to UPworthy, Melathe and the original developer.
