History is in how you tell it.

So I ran into an interesting example of how history can have vastly different meaning depending on how you tell it.  Last month on his SciShow Channel, Hank Green talked about human experimentation and used the story of Edward Jenner and the early attempts at a smallpox vaccine as one of his examples.  You can watch it here (it should be queued up to the correct moment, if not, skip to 2:49)

 

 

Well, recently Ted-Ed released a video on the same topic.  It came so quickly after the SciShow one, I almost wonder if it was in response.  Anyway, watch below and see if you notice as dramatic a difference as I did.
