This [video](http://www.fallen.io/ww2/) is a great visual display of quantitative information. It describes the deaths in World War II. Eliezer [posted](https://www.facebook.com/yudkowsky/posts/10153385579719228) it on Facebook.

The point where they showed the amount of Soviet deaths was one of the moments where I felt the least scope insensitive as I've ever felt. I sense that watching the video would really help people a) internalize what scope insensitivity is, and b) be less insensitive to scope. And so I think it deserves to be on the wiki page.
