WHAT IS THE WORLD'S SAFEST COUNTRY?... SOUTH KOREA!

I've been to many countries in the world, and I find none of them to be safer than South Korea.

Do you agree or disagree with my thoughts on Korea safety? What do you think is the safest country?

The Most Depressing City On Earth

Just gonna do a little damage control here and add that the video is purely opinion. I did very little intense research, and depression is a mental illness not a characteristic of a city. I based my argument on some facts, but I'm sure you can argue that war torn cities like Damascus could be more 'depressing'. Sorry if the video came off as if I was spouting the gospel.

If you think you have found a more depressing city, comment. Just do not comment Detroit. Please.



Full Script:
It was my goal when making this video to decide which city is the most depressing (which in this situation is a synonym for depressing). This is obviously just an opinion, but I did put some research into this and I think that my answer is very reasonable.

Before we get into this, let’s take a look at the rules. I decided that a city cannot have fewer than 50,000 people I know that that isnt the official definition, but This takes a lot of remote settlements in places like Greenland out of the mix.

I decided to look at what factors cause unhappiness. I found this list, and while some factors have no relation to geography, two do: Inability to sleep or excessive sleeping, and Social isolation.

In order for a city to make it hard to sleep, it has to be very far north, or very far south. Cities inside the arctic circle experience the polar night, where the sun simply does not come up for days at a time. This has been known to cause insomnia.

In order for a city to cause social isolation, it needs to have a hostile environment. Luckily, most cities in the Arctic Circle check that box. It also has to be isolated from other cities, and inaccessible.

There are many scandinavian cities that have hostile environments, but these cities, such as Tromso (traum-suh) are tourist destinations and generally good places to live. They have high standards of living.

Next, we have to turn to Russia. Two cities caught my eye immediately: the coal mining town of Vorkuta and remote port Murmansk. However, coal mining has become unprofitable in vorcuteuh, so people are moving out at alarming rates. Plus, just look at this picture and tell me that does not look jolly. And being a port city, Murmansk naturally has contact with new ideas and people.

However, there is one city that I have left out.

(Papers please theme)

Norilsk. The Nickel mining city of 170 something thousand people is so hostile it seems like something out of 1984. No roads lead to Norilsk, and it is one of three large cities in the continuous permafrost zone that means that the land is unfarmable. There is one freight railway that leads to the city, but the only way out is an airport or a port 40 miles away that freezes over in the winter.
Norilsk enters continuous darkness for 45 days each year, and when people leave the city, they say that they are going to “the mainland”. the polar night syndrome is common in residents, you can probably figure out why.

It is also one of the most polluted cities on earth. Here’s a quick list of facts about norilsk’s pollution:
1 percent of global emissions of sulfur dioxide comes from Norilsk nickel mines
. It is so polluted that some people mine the soil for soot because it contains precious minerals.
In September 2016, the nearby river turned red.
The life expectancy of a worker in Norilsk is 10 years lower.

A study done by Boris Revich showed that blood illnesses were 44% higher, nervous system illnesses 38% higher, and bone and muscle system illnesses 28% higher among children in Norilsk WHEN COMPARED TO OTHER CHILDREN IN SIBERA.

In any other city, people might protest these terrible, polluted conditions. But in Norilsk, the income for nearly everybody comes from one company: Norilsk Nickel. Any protestors would be fired, because even if you do not work in the mines, Norilsk Nickel also owns nearly all businesses in town. And the Russian Government has no plans to step in, because this company is a cash cow. Norilsk Nickel is 2% of the Russian GDP. In comparison, the entire city of San Francisco is 2% of the US GDP.

The city has a depressing past as well: it was built by 500,000 gulag prisoners working under starving conditions throughout the month long days and nights. Of which eighteen thousand died. The most obvious relic of this era can be found all over the city: the stalinist, utilitarian architecture of nearly every building in the city.

But hey, they painted the city bright colors so it can’t be that bad right?

This Video Will Change Your Perception of North Korea

Text me and say hi! +1 310 349 3854

I went on a 3 day guided tour in Pyongyang, North Korea in April 2017, and I put together this short video/documentary from trip.

Please keep in mind that this video is about my own personal experiences in North Korea, so please take what I say with a grain of salt. I am well aware that all tours to North Korea are organized and preplanned, and what I saw was a skewed perspective (a small fraction) of the realities that may exist behind closed doors.

My goal in making this video (and all videos) has always been the same – to focus on spreading happiness & positivity in our world by connecting with people across the globe. While it’s a bit more challenging to do this in North Korea, I tried my best to show you a different side of North Korea and connect with the people – apart from all the negativity the media has brought about to this nation.

Many of you know my deep love, appreciation and connection with Korea, as I lived and taught English in Seoul 18 months. I can speak Korean conversationally, so I used my ability to meet eye to eye with as many North Koreans as I could to have conversations with them. Most people I came across were friendly and kind-hearted, even after telling them I was American.

I welcome your thoughts, feedback and questions about my trip to North Korea. If you enjoy this video, please share it to help spread the message of peace and positivity within North Korea.

Top 10 most depressing cities in the United States. Some are in really bad shape.

Top 10 most depressing cities in the United States.

What is going on everyone welcome back to the World according to Briggs my name is Briggs, I travel, I make videos and I have never played with lawn darts responsibly. Really, that’s how my younger brother lost a nipple. Living without a nipple is depressing as you can imagine. Speaking of depression, did you know there are thousands of reasons a person can be considered depressed? One of those reasons is where you live. The environment, the people, the economy, the crime, and the weather are just some of the reasons a place can be considered depressing.

So how do you decide which city is the most depressing? Well you analyze everything you can from the U.S. Census data including divorce, average income, and unemployment rates. Then you look at the weather, homeless rate and how often people swipe right on my cousin's ex-wife tinder profile.
After that, you make an educated guess. And you come up with the most depressing cities.
And that is today's videos all about. So sit back, and relax, take a deep breath and watch my top 10 most depressing cities in America.


Thanks for stopping by. This has been a frequently requested video subject. The most depressing city seems to be very popular.

She Escaped North Korea to Live in South Korea

WONDER WHAT IT's LIKE TO ESCAPE NORTH KOREA?

We've all heard stories about people escaping North Korea for a better life... and today in Seoul, I was able to sit down with one ambitious North Korean girl named Nara, to hear what she went through.

Long story short, Nara escaped North Korea in 2015 by swimming over a river into China. Then she illegally entered Thailand without a passport, where she was thrown in jail for 1 month. After getting in touch with the South Korean embassy, they granted her citizenship and allowed her to move to Seoul.

While it was difficult for her to adjust to South Korean culture at first, she now lives a great life as an actress on TV and making videos for her YouTube and Instagram accounts (@kang_naraa)

This has been a special story for me to create because I spent 4 days in North Korea in 2017 and I got a glance at what society she grew up in... We chatted about everything from her thoughts on Kim Jong-un to the struggles that she faces adjusting to life in South Korea today.

If you find Nara's story inspiring - share this video with your friends!

Top 10 places people disappear in the United States.

Top 10 places people disappear in the United States. Alaska is bad.

Everyone wants to know how not to become a missing person. There is a lot of unsolved mystery in this country. We have more missing people than most people can fathom. Unsolved missing person cases are filed away in police dept all over this country. This list is about some places that have an odd number of people that have vanished.
There are cold cases from coast to coast. These are just a few. Some people think it is paranormal, some people think it is UFO's.

Thanks for checking out the channel. I hope you enjoyed today's video. If there is a state, city or town you'd like us to do a video about let us know in the comment section.

If you enjoy these videos I would love to hear about it. We look at the best and worst cities, states, towns, and neighborhoods in the United States. Occasionally we do other countries. Most of the time focus on the negative side of locations. That is just what people want to see.
If you only want some happy positive information about a city, town, or state, I would suggest looking up local mortgage and real estate companies or maybe the locations website. They are trying to sell you something so it will be nothing but sunshine, rainbows, and a bunch of smoke up your skirt.

Singapore is a small country in Southeast Asia and the worlds only island city-state. It’s one of the wealthiest countries in the world and is often seen as very western and boring.
