This Simple 3-Minute Animation Will Change Your Perception of Time Forever

We all know that Earth is old, but it's hard to put into perspective just how old it is.
After all, what does 4.5 billion years really mean? How do you even comprehend that amount of time with our short-lived human brains?
Well, Business Insider has done a pretty incredible job of it in this 3-minute animation, by displaying the timeline of Earth if time was the distance from Los Angeles to New York. And, oh boy, our world-view will never be the same.




We start our journey in Los Angeles, back when Earth first formed 4.54 billion years ago. But we don't get very far on our road trip through time and space before the Moon shows up after Earth is hit by a planetary body.
About halfway across the top of Arizona, the world's largest rock forms 3.95 billion years ago, and then a few miles down the road – 3.8 billion years ago – the first evidence of life shows up, in the form of replicating molecules. 
But it's not until Kansas, 2.7 billion years ago, when oxygen-producing cyanobacteria first emerge, and then 200 million years later that significant amounts of oxygen build up in Earth's atmosphere.
And then, believe it or not, it's not until Pennsylvania – halfway across the country – that multicellular organisms evolve, just 600 million years ago.
A lot happens in Pennsylvania, like plants colonising the land and amphibians evolving. And by the time dinosaurs become extinct we're already in New York State.
So where do humans fit in?
We'll let you watch the video below to find that out, and let's just say that it will blow your freaking mind. Especially when you see how much we've done in just 5.6 feet (1.7 metres) of time.

  1. Herpes Cure with Traditional Herbs
    I was once a victim of Herpes Virus,I have severe outbreaks and it was really irritating. I was referred to a Herbal doctor whose name was Ahmed through a health blogger page with lot of his patient testimony who were cured from different disease.I contacted him with his official email and he sent the herbal medicine to me. At first I taught it was a scam not until I received the Herbal medicine through courier service later and with his prescription I was cured within 21 days with my Herpes result negative with no trace of the virus on my blood, please don't get discouraged there is a cure for HSV 1 or 2 with Herbal medicine and it is very affordable. You can contact him through his official email address; drahmedusman5104@gmail.com. Most of his patient are been cured with his herbal medicine for Cancer and diabetes.
