    Im from Belgium and fun fact: while corona was like the first wave when stores in Belgium had to be closed, stores in the Netherlands could stay open, so you had some stores that couldn’t use the whole store😂 they literally like closed half of the store

    You don't need a passport or border checks to go from Spain to Portugal.
    Also interesting: that zip line goes through a time zone border too so you can zip line into the past.

    Jack: you read “intentional neglect” as “international neglect”. The Czech Republic solved the Tree infestation by letting it spread and run rampant until it died out, whereas Germany managed to stop the spread when it first happened

    On the Sweden Norway Bridge border:
    During the start of the pandemic Norway closed its borders to Sweden and even when the restrictions were eased you would still have to quarantine. However in April of 2020 a photo went viral in Norway of a pair of 71 year old twin brothers sitting on either side of the border on that exact bridge drinking coffee and having a chat. The twins, Ola and Pontus, are originally from Sweden but Ola has been living in Norway since 1983. They are best friends and couldn't stand not seeing each other so they agreed to meet at this bridge; gamle Svinesundsbroa. Neither twin lived far from the bridge so they would meet on it every Saturday at 11, maintaining 2 meters of distance and with strict orders from the soldiers patrolling the border of not hugging each other.
    They brought food and chairs and would sit there and talk for a few hours no matter the weather, on their birthdays they brought presents but were not allowed to exchange them so it was purely symbolic. They kept this up for 18 months until finally Ola could walk across the border to hug his brother Pontus without having to quarantine or get tested. They then drove and got pancakes.
    I just think it is a very wholesome story about this bridge and the border and hope whomever took the time to read it thinks so too

    The Berlin difference in lights is because West Berlin, being isolated, had to sustain its own electicity, so the lightbulbs are made to waste less.

    Since you're wondering why the sands on the Israel-Egypt border are so different, here's something from NASA that explains it:
    "The different colors of the land surface are the result of trampling by humans and their livestock. Trampling disturbs the dark-colored soil crusts on the Egyptian side of the border, allowing lighter-colored dune sand beneath the crusts to be exposed by winds"
    Another thing about that border is you can also see exactly where the borders of Gaza are

    "For some reason" if you're wondering why Baarle is so divided:
    Basically it is the result of a number of medieval treaties, agreements, land-swaps and sales between the Lords of Breda and the Dukes of Brabant. The story goes that in 1198, Henry I the Duke of Brabant gave over some marshland (Baarle was all marshland in the 12th century) to Godfried of Schoten, the Lord of Breda. Henry kept the lands that were paying him a rent. The area that Henry kept is now Belgian. The area that he gave to Godfried...is now Dutch. And the rest is history

    That first one with the volleyball match was taken in 2007 during the last time they did it. Volleyball was a tradition of the two Nacos from 1979 to 2007. It all ceased in 2007 when the fence between them got taller (understandably so). After that match the two communities held hands to show while they may be divided by a fence, they will forever be ONE Naco

    Jack, because you seem so fascinated with borders, you should react to a histomap video like Cottereau's "History of Europe" so you could see how the borders change over time, I think you would enjoy it.

    • Brandon Eldridge
      Brandon Eldridge 4 months ago

      It was Finland that built the lighthouse years before Sweden claimed half the island, but the Finnish lighthouse was on Sweden's side so the border was zigzagged so Finland got to keep the lighthouse and both got to keep a equal amount of land

    What's wrong with our country being dark? It's called saving electricity, and more people should be doing it as their part to make a difference
    In regards to Haiti, Haiti's environmental problems also has to do with France. When France colonized Saint-Domingue (now Haiti), they destroyed the soil by aggressively harvesting the same crops over and over again. Over the course of fifty years, a quarter of the colony was all coffee with the original forests cleared. They were also forced to export timber as part of paying off 90 million francs as compensation to France. This left a lasting impact

    Canada's borders with the united states is actually pretty interesting. You can stand on the border and see a line for as far as the eye can see. And the border is as clear as day too as it's just a strip of trees that have been cut down. I remember standing ontop of an mountain once and looking in the horizon and just seeing the border for fucking kilometers.

    The East German used to have one of those sodium vapour laps where as the West German had fluorescent lamps.
    The East German during the Berlin Wall eara was a tad bit poor and sodium vapour were a cheeper option for them. And on the other hand the west Germany realised that fluorescent lamps will cast brighter lights so they used that instead.
    And the reason as to why the bulbs (lamps) hasn't been changed is the population per sq km and mostly the preferences.
    Hope I cleared your query. I binge watch your content Amazing video . Keep it up! 😇

    With my family, we drove from France into Spain over the Pyrenees. At the border, the sign saying France & Espania was spray painted over: Catalunya, both ways.

    jack proceeds to read intentional as international.
    also jack : "although I will say, international neglect sounds a bit harsh to the Czech republic when we don't know all the context here

    You should have also included the Indo-Bhutan border since in many places even a small garden can become a border

    When I went snowboarding in Italy, it was right on the border of the French resort Mont Genevre so you could literally ski into a different country. It was sick

    Hi Jack, I think you should learn am the country’s shapes/outlines! You use a good technique remembering the flags and I reckon you can do the same with outlines, like Italy looks like a boot for example!

    Got me thinking. What if two countries where they drive on opposite sides of the road border. How do they switch sides?

    I once was at another pretty impressing border, it was between Germany and Switzerland, and it was right on the Rhein (a river) but the cool thing about it was that there was the worlds largest oldest still standing wooden bridge, which had an impressive architecture! And when you go over the bridge there's at the middle a white line on the ground that marks the border, so the half the bridge is in Switzerland and the over half in Germany, I also have a picture of me, standing with one feet in Germany and with the other one in Switzerland
