Here are two very sad videos about wars.

The first is a representation of the battles in the last 1000 years as explosions in a world map. The size of the explosion is proportional to the number of deaths.

I guess it's missing a lot of small battles because you can't see any explosions in very big regions (like Africa, Latin America and India) until some empire tries to conquer them. I'm sorry if I depressed you too much.

The second video at least is cute if you forget what is it really about. Is an animation of food to represent several armed conflicts. Each country is represented by a regional food (you can see the cheat sheet if you get lost).

Found at No Puedo Creer. Lots of interesting stuff there (in Spanish though).
