  • You measure a distance to Miami from northern most point of Brazil, but there are actually points more west which are much closer to Miami... making the theory wrong

  • Wow... I never knew I needed this kind of information. . .

  • osea, Geografía básica ahora es "weird".... vaya, si que hay crisis anglo 🤣🤣🤣

  • mind blown. Especially when they said africa is closer than miami

  • According to this video, south america is weird because of europe and north america. ok, this is bullshit

  • As a Brazilian I love the fact that you promised to talk about South America and made a video about Brazil and a place outside of South America

  • The weirdest thing is how many mistakes there are in the video.

  • Joining the Eastern Atlantic and western Pacific?

  • Why is south America on the northern hemisphere at 4:51? I understand it's supposed to show the opposite side of the world, so shouldn't it be reversed/ mirrored. Not flipped upside down?

  • this is a name that i not hear in a long time

  • The Detroit’s a lil off

  • What am I supposed to do with this information?

  • So interesting that south america is directly the opposite of south east asia. Both have the richest and oldest tropical rainforests on earth.

  • Brazil is like a spoilt kid. Pushes all the other countries away and won't give them room. I mean Chile is about to fall off look at it. Nudge up a bit Brazil

  • It's weird to watch this as a south American

  • Sad fact: if u spell br in a video u'll get flooded by brazillians commenting that video

  • Now that you said Brazil is just underneath the Phillipines I can't stop thinking about: "Oh Juan, tapos ko nang hukayin yung butas papunta sa kabilang ibayo ng mundo" "Oh sige Ambo, ngayon. Ikaw batumbakal, pupunta ka sa Brazil!" "Hah? Teka teka teka, ano?!" **Fwooosh**

  • That's why the diversity in the rainforests of Asia is almost similar to the Amazon.

  • Can you do a video talking about what would happen if the earths surface shifted down or around? So like europe is closer to the equator or the americas were layed horizontally

  • Noob facts, I alredy knew all of them

  • Fun fact: The largest river island in the world "Ilhas do bananal," located in Tocantins - Brazil is almost as big as Israel

  • The map you showed at 4:46 is correct ? I doubt that.

  • I’m happy if you learnt that America is not a country :)

  • Brazil is the 5th largest country in the world

  • You should make a vídeo about wierd Brazilian population

  • Even weirder is that the U.S calls itself "America", neglecting the fact that Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean countries, Central and South America are all part of AMERICA.

  • 04:54 - I had to google an interactive globe online because I couldn't believe this. It is so weird once you see it.

  • I learned this during the world cup cause the games were all at like 11am

  • Your Detroit pin on the map is closer to Chicago than Detroit

  • Why is there a video from Barcelona?

  • Mercator Projection, I can see that this projection is the problem if I'm not 100% mistaken...

  • There is no weird geography...only those who think it so

  • why are auto generated subtitles russian?

  • If someone doesn't ask me before then, I will literally be waiting on my death bed for someone to ask me, "Which country shares the longest border with France".

  • South America is honestly really cool and I feel like I don’t learn enough about it and you don’t hear about it enough in media and the world. I really wanna go to Bolivia and Chile

  • you put a red dot on the map and labelled it as Detroit but that dot is where Chicago is. Oops!

  • 😀 what

  • CADÊ OS BRASILEIROS NESSA BAGAÇA? RSRSRSRSRS

  • Fun Fact: People who disliked this video are flatearthers

  • So North America is technically the furthest continent from any major city with a massive economic influence? Sounds cool

  • Wow so interesting. I actually live as East as parts of South America but most of the country doesn't.

  • 3:50 “...South America...” * shows Guatemala *

  • You need two western Europes to make one Southamerica; Chile is long but narrow, you can make a trip from the Andes to the sea in just two hours.

  • Brb bout to take a road trip from France to Brazil

  • 1:48 wtf is he on about? how is Agentina closer to the north than it is the south, the image in the video clearly shows that is not the case

  • You put the dot for Detroit where Chicago is.

  • Chilean Patagonia is climatically similar to Scotland a fact most people don’t know.

  • So, when I (a chilean) was a child, went to the beach, dug a deep hole and said "If I keep going, I'm going to end up in China", I was right.

  • Why is there footage of Guatemala on a Brazil-centered video? wtf?

  • So it would just be called America?

  • Fun fact: in Spanish we only have América and it is the entire continent, that is why we call people for United States “estadounidenses” and not Americans cause all the people from the continent are Americans hahahah.

    • @Deinis de Sousa yo por eso siempre prefiero decir estadounidenses, ya que para mi siempre será el mismo continente.

    • Only the English speaking countries consider 2 continents. US stole everyting from us, even our (not) Heroes

  • Fun fact: Guyana is primarily the only english speaking country in South America also.

  • South America's Geography is weirder than you Think: There's no South American Continent, it's just One Big continent called America, but there was a coutry that stole the name of the continent. So, in order to get away with stealing the continent's name, they inventend that there is 2 separate continents (and doutrinated their children in classes), even tough Americo Vespucci was working by the portuguese and landed in Brazil. That's why the name AMERICA is in the southern part of the continent in the first maps, and the northern part has another name

    • @Laurence Fraser You are pretty wrong. why people comment things before googling it????

    • Pretty sure English maps have labled them North and South America, or "The Americas" since before the USA was a thing.

  • "The Northernmost Point of Brazil is closer to all American countries." What the-

  • Can someone explain the antipode globe to me? I’m so confused

  • there is a place called PooPosee in Bolivia

  • Potogues

  • Research DITRH

  • Wasn't South America located straight south from North America? Instead of being moved eastwards, nearly connecting Africa.

  • cool

  • You put the dot for Detroit where Chicago is

  • I saw TierZoo’s Outside thumbnail during the Nebula portion of the vid. I am pleased.

  • 03:00 is BARCELONA, Idk if I can trust this channel anymore lol

  • If you dug a hole through the Argentine province of Formosa, you'd pop out in Taiwan (otherwise known as Formosa).

  • Uhhhh I think they mixed up Detroit and Chicago.....

  • So New Buffalo Michigan has been renamed to Detroit?

  • Time zones in South America are different too... the time zone that Americans call "Eastern Time" is exclusively observed by South America's far west coast.

  • Brazil's economy is also much larger than Russia's, but we instinctively seem to think that the reverse is true

  • 4:52, that map is wrong in soooooo many ways If its south america its not closer to the north pole just cuz its on the other side of the earth

  • Yeah, that wasnt the eastern most point in Brazil... in continental Brazil yes, but Brazil has islands further east.

  • 3:53 that's Antigua Guatemala, not South America

  • Forgot to mention the Formosa antipode, another neat factoid.

  • This video is worth watching! More of this, please!

  • Canadas most southern point is closer to Jamaica than it's most northern point.

  • This video gave me a headache

  • Fun fact about Acre ( a brazilian state)....you can still find living dinossaurs there... T-rex steak is really good

  • At 3:55 that’s literally Antigua, Guatemala not Brazil

  • Why are you talking about the EU, the Panama canal in central america and showing images of the city of Antigua in Guatemala? I thought the video was about South America.

    • RealLifeLore is know for having a lot of mistakes on his videos

  • RLL: says Miami Me: he pointed at Naples -_-

  • From Salvador, Brazil, it is 3015 miles to Cartegena, Colombia but its only 2922 miles to Accra, the capital city of Ghana

  • The closer to Canada thing blew my mind

  • 4:46 WTF.

  • How many days would it take to drive across Brazil on a Toyota Corolla? 😁

  • Fun fact: 3.50min into the video the place shown is actually Antigua, Guatemala. Not located in South America

  • You did not choose the closest point to Miami, you chose the northenmost point.

  • Fun fact: Florida has Summer and Hot Summer

  • I'm not sure that the northernmost point of Brazil is actually the closest one to Miami (nor the easternmost point being the closest one to Africa).

  • AMEERICA is one whole CONTINENT :NORTH,CENTRAL AND SOUTH,period.

  • 3:49 not actually SOUTH America dude, thats GUATEMALA located in CENTRAL America.

  • Min 3:05 That´s not South America, it´s Barcelona (Spain)

  • "If you're in the United States.. and you draw a straight line down... it's unlikely that that line will ever actually hit South America." Westernmost point of continental South America: 81.32 degrees West. States entirely to the east of that line: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania (and D.C.). Combined population: 63.7 million. Percent of contiguous United States (population 325.4 million): 19.6% This is a generous lower bound, because it doesn't count other major East Coast cities like Charlotte, Richmond, or the Chesapeake Bay Area. Is 1 in 5 unlikely? I suppose "technically", but I don't think it's much in the spirit of the factoid. Most of us living on the East Coast are CORRECT when we think about South America as straight south.

  • The "closer to Africa" part is misleading. Moving the endpoint from Miami to the actual southernmost point of Florida more than makes up that 10 mile difference. The way you phrased it is "technically" true, but it's a reach.

  • You keep saying "Eastern Atlantic Ocean" and "Western Pacific Ocean," but South America is on the western side of the Atlantic and eastern side of the Pacific. The western side of the pacific touches Asia and the eastern Atlantic touches Africa.

  • 4:56 did you just invert the Americas??? What is that??? someone explain it to me please if I am wrong

  • The Earth is flat, thats why maps don't make sense in the southern hemisphere

  • Some more weirdness: South America lacks large unambiguously South American nearby islands like Madagascar, the British Isles, Tasmania or Japan are to Africa, The European peninsula, Eastern Asia, and Australia. Cuba is closer to North America and Hispaniola is only barely closer to South America. It also lacks large unambiguous peninsulas. Patagonia kinda looks like a peninsula but where would it start? This however is not unique to South America, but is still wierd compared to much of the world. Especially Europe, which is not a continent but a peninsula of peninsulas.

  • Not Detroit my guy

  • इतना भी अजीब नहीं था।

  • Peru, Guyana and Venezuela are also in South America, although they were not mentioned.

  • hue br krl
