There are thousands of restoration videos.
I get hooked on old rusty knives and
cleavers. I often watch the first 2 min
and skip to the last 2 min for the reveal.
Awesome.

Some of these have millions of views.

I'm watching Russian music videos because I can't be bothered to be told anything and I can only follow the video part.

I'm fascinated by the number of people who
make a living having a cooking channel.
Laura in the Kitchen has 3.3 million subscribers
and her videos get 10's of thousands of hits.
She probably earns between $300K and $750K
a year by making cooking videos in her
kitchen. She also makes product placement
money. There are channels that make
millions a year.

Laura is one of the good ones..

Bender was in the Trump Trapezoid Hotel in Atlantic City before he got knocked out by a pitchfork and wound up in Robot Hell. - Futurama 1999, and the program guide on Spectrum went out of order at the same time.

I find it refreshing that even EB can acknowledge and cherish the achievements a globalized, diverse economy has given us.

I'm thinking of making a new YouTube channel called "Fun with Math" or something like that. I plan to buy a big white board and just solve math problems and talk about how great math is. I probably will get tens of views, but who knows. Too bad I don't look like Hannah Minx or I would be getting millions of them, as she did.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

It's like confidence in a can. I just finished gutting the first half of my house. Prolly never would've pulled the trigger, but I know I got a hundred guys to show me what to do if I get stuck, and a thousand guys to show me how to repurpose all the s@#$ I'm stripping

Between YT and overstock auctions, I'll re-floor my entire house for less than just the labor for just the kitchen. It's like a 500% return on investment in 2wks. Add in plumbing, electric and automotive and the site damn near prints money. Just add effort.
