This site is a time chopper and very easy to lose yourself in for hours because of how one video takes to another and another. It's definitely a emergency option when there is nothing to watch on TV and I like the site just as much as facebook. And the fact that you can watch anything from sports to comedy to reality shows, etc makes it feel like it's not enough hours in the day sometimes


Any other youtube addicts?

It is one of the few places where we can see classical music concerts. Not sure that I would call them time wasters.

I guess so - at times I get lost in the youtube rabbit hole. It usually starts with something innocuous like a tune / jingle from a commercial rattling in my synapses, say the DeBeers Diamonds classical sounding riff from years ago

DeBeers commercial - YouTube
and then spirals into something obscure like a three stooges episode, a promo spot from local tv years ago which I wonder if someone has posted, to something like a song by Death Cab By Cutie to have playing in the background while I'm doing something else, to a classical piece to sooth me without having to find the Cd from my collection to something funny like the 1994 Texas high school football game announcers of Plano East HS comeback game fail,

Plano East-John Tyler 1994 Football - YouTube
to a TED talk or MIT course online to Dave Brubeck's, Take Five ... sheesh my brains all over the place and an hour has passed by!
