Aw Man I Hate Youtube.

Recommended Posts

What the heck?  :huh:  Just because I'm watching a few Wallaby and aquarium videos doesn't mean I need a date!!!  Although if there are millions of Russian beauties seeking romance, who am I to resist them?  6b567c5d48.jpg

Remember when Youtube was ad free?  And then they started making you watch a 10-15 second ad, but you could alway skip the ad in 4 seconds?  And lately some of them you can't skip at all, you have to sit through sometimes a 30 second commercial.  And now those pop-ups at the bottom of the screen that you scramble to hit the little x before they block important parts of the video you're watching.

Is there any way to avoid the ads?  :(

On those long, unskippable ones I usually quit the video and look for something similar:angry:

Well I think that's how the Youtubers and Youtube make their money so if I like a video I'll put up with them.  It's an interesting evolution of TV where you have a choice (sometimes) to skip over ads.  For individual people producing content, I think it's not the end of the world to watch or click skip as needed.  Annoying?  You bet!  But I have seen some funny commercials which were worth watching.  Like this one for instance:

There are some extensions like Adblock for Chrome and Adblocker for Firefox that seem to work.

Yeah, that's a good one, I sometimes hear people mention that product on the radio now after being given free samples.  You're right, it's a pretty minor thing, and if I like the video or person who made it, I feel a little obligated to let them make money from it.

And besides, it can be used for a break before the video:popcorn:

Damn you Hunka... you used my wife again! Not sure where she found that foreign accent though. Actually she does use that product but unfortunately there have been some bombs that require a 'Danger Off Limits' sign posted for days!

Now I just need a Pen Pineapple Apple Pen.  Where can I buy?  Actually someone just kill me now.  I can't get this tune out of my head.

Neither can I, thanks so much:w00t2:

Those twins kind of creeped me out just a little, looking back and forth at them, the old brain hasn't seen many twins doing something in unison.

I keep coming back to watch this video, it kind of reminds me of the Gangnam Style video, wonder if it's gone viral yet.

LOL I know right?  :roflmao:That was exactly what I thought about those twins.  Ever watch "The Ring?"   The video has 46 million views already so it's been around for a bit.

I've played around with the idea of building one of these, but this thing is on a danger-level of its own:

Very interesting! He never states what the arc welder needs to be dialed in at but the whole concept is awesome! I never realized that silicone brick was so fragile. Jewelry thieves would love one of these.
