YouTube Review of Videos

Because we constantly clearing our mind with one thing we wish to attain and that is “Nothingness”. There comes a time we need to know answers to some of our questions.  The clearing causes us to ask other people the answers either here or when we go out and about.  On this list (below) we just wonder “what the heck are these people thinking?”

Now that Comcast added “YouTube” to the “apps” option we have slowed down on binge watching Netflix and moved over to “YouTube” and it is mostly laughing at videos.

Then there are the people who own pets, especially cats.  Why do owners dress cats and dogs up or tease them to no end?  It’s actually sad to see these animals being teased and tortured in some cases.

Then there are those older folks who let their children talk them into riding on one of those “hover boards”, which actually have wheels at each end and are about as stable as dynamite in the back of a pick up truck going down a bumpy road.  Rarely do the “adults” make it more than 3 feet and every time they fall its on the small of their back or a solid fall on a hip.  They must be injuring their back or breaking a hip.  Some of the falls are tough to watch.  Then the children are a bit smarter.  They sit on the board, but this eliminates control and eventually the run in to furniture or a wall where the usually punch a hole in it.  All these usually in a home, but then there are the adventurers who move out to the street, probably to show off to their neighbors how agile they are.  This allows the “adults” to really puck up some speed so that when they fall someone is standing by with a cell phone to call 911.  We wonder who invented this device.  A local hospital that was in need to some patients with broken bones, or broken backs, or one of the worse we have seen is the slam the back of the head on the floor and get a skull fracture.  No matter what, parents, grand-parents, and great grand-parents should stay off hover boards.

Then we have the trampoline people who automatically think they are safe because they have netting circling along the edge. They seem to think now they can do a triple summersault in the air and they will come down where they started.  Usually they come down snarled in the netting or they jump so hard they go over the netting on to the “soft” ground. When they hit the ground usually not on their feet, you can tell the ground is not “soft” as one would think.  You know what they are thinking too, “What the hell was I thinking? Someone please call 911”.

Then we have the people who think that jumping into a swimming pool off the roof of a garage, elevated deck, or house would really be neat.  These people usually have a can of some sort of beverage and are wobbling as they make their way to the jump spot.   Then as they start to jump they have second thoughts but it’s too late, they have run out of roof.  These folks usually miss the pool and land on the pool deck with an ugly sounding thud. We have seen some land on their feet and go right to the ground in agony.  Of course we have seen some make it to the pool, but they jumped in to the shallow end of the pool.  After the splash, the video ends quickly so as not to show the results. (Screams are always heard in the background).

Let’s move on to the skate-board folks. When it comes to adults the same coordination as the “hover board” applies.  (See above)  The younger folks are usually trying flips, spins, hand stands, and ramp jumps.  Then of course there are the collisions between two or three kids all trying to occupy the same space at the same time.  In the “skate parks” it’s usually minor falling down or skidding across the pavement.  But then we have the kids attempting to slide down the hand-rails of stairs. Some of them make it but the other 99.9999% are slamming the ground or “busting their balls” on the rail.  Not a pretty sight and they usually don’t get right up.

Of course there are some video’s of people doing amazing things and we enjoy these as much as the “laugh” videos and they always challenge you to not laugh as an enticement to watch that companies video.  The companies that make the videos that repeat an event as many as three time, we refuse to watch.  Then the companies that show an advertisement in the middle of a video is on the same list.  Our favorite subject is “Like a Boss” because these are usually people doing cool stuff.  Then the other one we like is “Oddly Satisfying Compilation unlike any other” these are always creative and rarely a repeat.  Of course there are the “What could possible go wrong”  “High speed chases” (some), “best Cube” (These are “ify” because they are usually not in English), and of course “Instant Karma Fails | Instant Justice”.

There are videos for just about everything, and we do venture off to other stuff sometimes.  Like looking for music videos, or how to fix a computer, or how to fix a flying saucer, great landings and takeoffs of airplanes’, how to plant dandelions, how to cook a rat, how to make a dress pattern,  how to drink a beer upside-down, the correct beer pong set-up, how to beat radar detection (Mythbusters proved this as fake), how to look like your levitating, how to change your left side tires when your car is balanced on your right side tires, how to run on top of water (Fake), and the list goes on and on.

We wish to thank all of those “YouTube” participates who make us laugh, teach us how to fix stuff, enlighten us to things we never knew about, and all the folks who create videos for others to watch.  The whole point is to get the creativity flowing.

Thanks to all our subscribers and here is an update on our “Gluten and Sugar Free” journey.  Sugar free just has completely amazed us. It’s been a week and we are sleeping way better, we have energy to burn, we are more alert, and our mind is even clearer.  The Gluten Free part is starting to move along and we have eliminated bread with gluten, which is a biggie because we eat a lot of bread, and we are actually reading labels on food products.  We used to be “grab and go”, but not anymore.  We are also receiving tons of support from people who we talk too.  So far, so awesome, J

We have nothing else to report except to wish everyone a great week and we are always sending blessings.  We are also praying for all those people who are not getting paid because of the government shutdown, and we see some large companies are pitching in to make these folks lives easier.
