Mario 64, alien spaceship sounds, and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk all have something in common: creating tension through sound via a technique called Shepard's tone. Shepard's tone gives the illusion of rising or falling, without ever getting louder, quieter, or changing pitch — and it's one of Nolan's favorite ways to create tension.
Kurzgesagt takes a break from the scientific to get a little philosophical. With most of their subject matter touching on the rise of the machines or Earth-destroying Gamma-Ray bursts, their videos tend to cause existential dread. In an attempt to create something a little less depressing, Kurzgesagt touch on their own philosophy on life — Optimistic Nihilism.

When summer comes to the Isle of Man, so do the motorcycles. With riders screaming through corners just inches from centuries-old stone walls and topping 200 MPH down winding public roads, the Snaefell Mountain Course is a 37-mile long behemoth that eats men and motorcycles alike — over 255 deaths have come at the track since its start in 1907. In 1993, New Zealander John Britten brought his V1000 to the TT. Completely built by hand and extensively using exotic materials and innovative designs not seen in anything at the time, Britten challenged the biggest motorcycle manufacturers with something designed and built by a handful of friends. Now, the Britten has returned.
