    I disagree. I think YouTube is way smarter than TV. I regularly look up how-tos... everything from murdersickle wrenching vids to fixing the ice maker. I went on a jag last week watching bagpipes. I love flash mobs. I have seen everything from Jimmy Carr and Nina Conti and Penn & Teller. I adore The History Guy. I've even contributed myself. My best received vid is "How to Roll Your First Cigar." Get a lotta good reviews on that, all the time. I wish to hell Tulsi Gabbard had a snowflake's chance in hell of the Dimocrat ticket... all on the basis of mutual respect between her and Tucker in his YouTube interviews of her. Watched a fascinating vid yesterday explaining the Golden Ratio. Have been catching up on MMA ever since we switched to ComCast, where it's so much rarer than FIOS. There for a while, I was deep into Mongolian throat singing.

    Jeez, there's no end to it. You can dial up more smart stuff on YouTube than anywhere else.

    I use yuktube to look up products I am thinking about buying. 
    There are usually tons of reviews and how to use videos on most products.
    Then I can see it, see it used and get a better idea.

    No question that there is a ton of stupidity on yuktube, but there is also a lot of good content.

    Some good cigar reviews too.
    Except for that tiki torch dude, Cigar Obnoxious?, who is just light running your fingernails down a chalkboard.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Now-a-days kids run 39mm down the whiteboard. It's not quite the same sound, but it will still put a chill in your cockles.

    At any given time the urge to sing "In The Jungle" is just a whim away... A whim away... A whim away...

    I googled it. The internet does not know what "running a 39mm down the whiteboard" is, and neither do I.

    I absolutely agree. I watch a lot of animal rescue videos, there are a bunch. Wish there were more.
    Watched some product rating/comparison vids, about half of them are legit. A lot are just trying for freebees, they eventually stop posting
    geoffers47, EPIC Compilation, Donut Operator, Stolen Valour are some favorites. But only one of those is not about really stupid people.
    YouTube would be so small it probably would have been bought out by some other social media.
