101 Facts About Africa

greetings mother factors my name is Sam
and today I’m going to be talking to you all about an entire continent
yes it’s everyone’s ancestral motherland Africa it’s big it’s hot it inspired
from the greatest songs of all time that I may be referencing several times in
this video what’s not to like but which African nation is known for
its whimsical coffins what’s so special about the Potomac tribe of northern
Zimbabwe let us know what you think in the poll up above and this is the movie
Madagascar like you know is it is it based on a true story just just asking
for a friend two out of three of those questions are
going to be answered so put on your safari pants to grab your boo-boo sailor
and stop an old man along the way as we count through 101 facts about Africa
number one Africa is the second largest and second most populous continent in
the world it’s beat into first place in both categories by Asia because Asia is
a psycho bitch who lives with drama number two continental Africa is
surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north the Red Sea in the Indian
Ocean to the east and the Atlantic Ocean to the west if you can’t find it with
those directions I mean I just simply pity you number three as I mentioned a
little while earlier Africa is big the Continental mainland and adjacent
Islands measure in at roughly thirty point three million square kilometers
that works out at around six percent of Earth’s total surface area and whopping
twenty percent of Earth’s total land area yep that’s right one in five places
is Africa number four despite being the second
largest continent Africa actually has the shortest coastline due to its
distinct lack of peninsulas and rough edges around its continent or mainland
it’s completely smooth baby number five Africa also includes a Madagascar and a
number of other smaller island groups known to highfalutin science people as
archipelagos number six Africa is also the most centrally located continent in
the world as it has land both along the equator at zero degrees latitude and the
prime meridian at eight degrees longitude
sadly the Prime Meridian I just mentioned is an entirely arbitrary
contrivance that could have been placed anywhere so theoretically South America
could have been the world with centered continent you got lucky Africa number
seven there are numerous theories regarding the origin of the word Africa
but be the most widely accepted
interpretation is that Africa derived from a free a Latin term referring to a
native Libyan tribe that was generally applied to all people living in land
south of the Mediterranean number eight in the early Mesozoic era roughly 250
million years ago Africa was fused together with other continents as part
of a huge supercontinent called Pangea over millions of years this Pangaea
broke apart into smaller chunks much like a doomed horror movie search party
would number 9 Africa is widely accepted to be the point of origin for Homo
sapiens if you don’t know what they are by the way you’re looking at one well if
you’re looking at a human that is evidence suggests that the first Homo
sapiens emerge in central Eastern Africa somewhere between 200,000 to 300,000
years ago and there was much rejoicing I can imagine I mean humans were gone to
everything up but at the time I’m sure everyone was delighted number 10 in 1974
scientists discovered roughly 40% of the skeleton of a female hominid in Ethiopia
who would have lived roughly 3.2 million years ago the individual of the species
oh dear okay let’s give this a go Australopithecus afarensis was nicknamed
Lucy Lucy came from Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles which was played
repeatedly an expedition camp on the night of the discovery these first
modern humans began to leave Africa somewhere between 70,000 and 100,000
years ago moving into Europe and Asia early humans slightly x2 the African
continent either across the Sinai Peninsula straight to Gibraltar the
Strait of Sicily or across a 30 kilometer wide stretch of water at the
opening of the Red Sea could bab-el-mandeb number 12 the pharaonic

and constituted one of the world’s earliest and longest lasting

centuries slavery was officially abolished rather British Empire in 1833
and the Thirteenth Amendment which formally ended slavery in the United
States was ratified in December of 1865 number 16
however Europe wasn’t done harassing the entire continent of Africa yet during
the late 19th century the mated European imperial power was thought it would be a
great idea to colonize and occupy basically all of Africa thereby creating
numerous colonial territories from which Europe harvested resources and
systematically subjugated the native African population this was known
somewhat euphemistically as the Scramble for Africa and it was very very very
very very bad number 17 this process was formalized through the Berlin Conference
in 1884 285 which established various rules and regulations for European
colonization and trade in the African continent which predictably had zero
African inputs this convergence of dust the old euro knob heads was convened
because of fears that unregulated annexation various chunks of Africa
could lead to disagreement and possibly wars between the European powers how
civilized of them number 18 the only two areas of Africa that were not violently
oppressed by the aristocratic European douche bags were Liberia and Ethiopia
then known to Europeans as Abyssinia number 19 since the era of colonialism
many African states have struggled with instability corruption authoritarianism
violence and war the vast majority of African countries are at least nominally
presidential republics but very few have actually managed to sustain stable
democracies for very long funny what centuries of oppression by evil foreign
powers will do to an entire continent number 22
today Africa contains 54 fully recognized sovereign states more than
any other continent including hits like Nigeria Egypt Somalia and everyone’s

Africa measuring it at around two million three hundred eighty one
thousand seven hundred forty-one square kilometres over 90% of out here is 40
million citizens live along the country’s Mediterranean coast mostly
because the rest of Algeria is literally just a big chunk of Sahara Desert number
24 the largest country in Africa used to be Sudan until the country’s lower
sub-saharan population split from the rest of the country to form South Sudan
via referendum in 2011 taking around a third of Sudan’s land with it now Sudan

is also the fourth largest island in the world it mostly hangs out off the east
coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean and it’s home to over 26 million people not
only that Monegasque is a biodiversity hotspot as over 90% of its wildlife is
found nowhere else on earth number 29 beer – will is an area of land
covering roughly two thousand square kilometres between Egypt and Sudan that
is unclaimed by either nation constituting the only place of unclaimed
land in the world outside of Antarctica as such several people around the world
have it jokingly attempted acclaimed beer Tawil but due to it being little
more than a super remote area of hostile desert no one has taken such claims
seriously that’s it I’m climbing beer to whale and renaming
it Lorentz yeah you’ll be my queen Jennifer hurry girl it’s Wayne in there
for you number 30 Africa is also the world’s hottest continent a locality in
Ethiopia called Dalal holds the record for the world’s highest average
temperature for an inhabited location when an average annual temperature of 34
point 6 degrees Celsius or 94.3 degrees Fahrenheit – American folk was recorded
between 1960 and 1966 that’ll make you bless the rains down in Africa number 31
Africa also contains the world’s largest hot desert known as the Sahara a word
derived from the Arabic word for desert so the phrase the Sahara Desert actually
means the desert desert said desert desert covers an area of roughly 9
million 200,000 square kilometers which is roughly the same size as huge
countries like the United States or China
number 32 though many believe that the longest river is a certain River in
South America that shall remain nameless traditionally the Nile River is
considered to be the longest river in the world the Nile is thought to be
approximately 6,800 53 kilometers and runs through 11 African countries before

individually the highest or the widest waterfall in the world Victoria Falls on
the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe is indeed the largest waterfall in the

America number thirty-five lake retba is a lake in senegal located roughly 30
kilometers northeast of the capital dakar on the tip of the Cape Verde
Peninsula it’s also known as Lac rose meaning pink lake going to the fact it

releases of red pigment to assist in absorbing light number 36 the highest
mountain in Africa is Mount Kilimanjaro a dormant volcano in the eastern African
nation of Tanzania that rises like Olympus above the Serengeti its
elevation of five thousand eight hundred ninety five meters tall makes it the
fourth highest mountain on earth allowing it to be capped with snow man
glaciers despite its relative closeness to the equator number 37 the nations of
Africa cooperate with each other through the African Union which is headquartered
in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa in case you’re wondering by the way the
African Union was established in 2001 Morocco withdrew from the African
Union’s predecessor the organization of African Unity in 1984 following the
acceptance of the Sarabi Arab Democratic Republic at a member state however
Morocco was readmitted in 2017 number 38 several countries in the east

populous country in Africa is Nigeria with over 193 million inhabitants
that’s enough for roughly seventeen and a half million football teams were
leaning over life with an estimated population of 12 million people Cairo

had a fascinating life so far from it in ancient Egypt for its time in the
ottoman empire – a crazy little thing called the arab spring you may have
heard of that number 43 Africa has the youngest average

language in Africa spoken by between 140 and 170 million people primarily in the
siharan countries of North Africa other common languages include Swahili French
English Howser Berber Portuguese and Spanish number 48 there are more French
speakers in Africa than in France which is a fun little fact if you want to wear
up how that happened which is through hunches of gears of a European
oppression oh dear number 49 similarly the southern African nation of
Angola has more Portuguese speakers than Portugal number 50 according to the
Guinness Book of World Records the country with the most official languages

Rwanda is the only governing body on the planet in which women outnumber men with
almost two female MPs for every male 1 I would punctuate this fact when an
enthusiastic appeal for girl power but sadly the female majority in Rwandan
Parliament is due in part to the effect of the Rwandan genocide which the
majority of the victims were men number 55 nigeria is home to a huge film
industry that often ranked as the second largest in the world by sheer volume of
films made with bollywood in first place while hollywood cries in third the
Nigerian film industry is called Nollywood because because of course it

his efforts to bring peace to his country number 63 Africa is home to the
world’s largest land animal the African elephant which is known to inhabit 37

of Moammar Qaddafi in 2011 the flank of Libya was just green I cannot give a
more detailed description than that it was literally just Green number 81 the
flank of the Ivory Coast is often confused with the flag of the Republic
of Ireland owing to the fact that it’s essentially exactly the same but with
the green and gold columns reversed number 82 the Liberian flag is well
known for its striking resemblance to another perhaps more slightly famous
flag the Liberian flag differs from that of its American counterpart in that it
only has 11 stripes and one star whereas the American flag has 13 stripes and 50
stars the reason their flies look so alike is because the nation of Liberia
was primarily made up of former African American slaves and their free black

specifically chosen to reflect this as it comes from the Latin libor

called the Callen gene is known for producing most of the world’s fastest
long-distance runners a number of theories it’s been raised as to why a
single ethnic group that constitutes less than 1/10 of a single percent of
the human population dominates most of its long distance races such as living

also apply to the other groups in that region number 86
banane a tiny country in West Africa record more birth of twins than any

minority of their population only have two toes known as ectrodactyly in those

two outer toes are turned in the prevalence of ectrodactyly in the tribe
is thought to be a defect caused by the small gene pool as tribal law prevents
them from marrying outside the tribe number 93 the 7th of October 2014 was a
very important day for the nation of Somalia as it was the date upon which
the east african nation first welcomed its very first ATM number 94 george

Africa was the only country in history to dismantle its nuclear weapons program
in the name of world peace three other nations Belarus Kazakhstan and Ukraine
