With sites like YouTube and Google Video it’s easy to forget there was a time when it was harder to find video of footage of just about anything you could think of. There was a time when you would save all these random videos and then show them to your friends when either they came over or visited your dorm room. But now with a good internet connection all you have to do is save links with something like a Delicious account.

YouTube and to a slightly lesser extent Wikipedia are really good time wasters (too good in fact). First time I was on Wikipedia I just kept on tabbing links and would read about one topic for hours and hours. On YouTube you just think of a theme (recently I was looking at the introductions to 80s animated and live-action TV shows) and you could be occupied for even longer because almost anything you can think of is on there. Best thing I saw recently was sent to me by my friend Mark.
