View Full Version : Youtube: The bane of productivity

07-11-2009, 01:36 AM
Well, as I sit here at 1:30 in the morning messing around on the internet instead of doing my final project that's due in the morning I came across a youtube video. This video called DEADLINE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpWM0FNPZSs), managed to elegantly sum up my entire academic career with post-it notes. This got me thinking, I haven't seen a best of youtube thread around in a while. So here is the place for it, from the classics like End of the world (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCpjgl2baLs) to How to do nothing at work and still get paid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYgtUvgYi8U), all are welcome here.

*seems to vaguely remember posting a facebook update on her final project word count every 100 words*

There are also the failblog archives, TL forums and guildwars.. in fact, everything seems more inviting when you really have to finish an essay or a project. :rolleyes:

Best of YouTube, eh? Here's a couple of my favorites. You probably shouldn't play them at work due to explicit language though.

I'm on a boat. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_YlkEUOonI&feature=PlayList&p=0516A45938BF35B7&index=0&playnext=1)

The Anit-Boredom Campaign :D (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-Igd-85PDg)Not quite as good as advertised. I was wondering what "Anit" was going to be, but that turned out to be a typo.

I am a simple woman with simple tastes, I guess. One of my YouTube favorites:

some of my favs:

Office Linebacker (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q4jb-kXebQ&NR=1)

BMW (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9adiZk9gGk) A little long, but really funny.

Lightsaber Duel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWvu8XYgNoc) One of my favorite home movie type duels. Very well done, imo.

High Jump (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANii1hbj1Mc)

OK Strongman- you are a cruel, cruel person.

I watched Old Greg last night, and I can't get him out of my head. I friggin' dreamt about him.

Curses upon you!

I watched Old Greg last night, and I can't get him out of my head. I friggin' dreamt about him.

I've seen that and thought that not only was it creepy and not-funny... it was anti-funny. There were some funny thoughts I had kicking around in my head, and now they're gone forever, because of that video. It was so unfunny it ruined other funny things.

I like "50 Ghetto Names" or some such. They're blatantly false, but some of the ones they come up with are so funny.

Old Greg is beyond creepy- he is uber-creepy.

You might need to turn up the volume to hear it all.

It's not YouTube, but this made me laugh:

I was cleaning up my facebook inbox, and I came accross this youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42E2fAWM6rA&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fhome.php%3F&feature=player_embedded#t=13). It's not funny, just very cool.
