So with the first YTMA just around the corner, I figured one of these needed to be started again. There is sure to be something to discuss and I’m also pretty sure that I shouldn’t be creating threads every time I find some cool video. Anyways, since it’s Halloween I’ll start this thread off with a little comedy.

Oh, why not. One of my favorite YTP’s:

Just when I thought they couldn’t make youtube more needlessly complicated, more unnecessarily stupid, more downright broken…they “updated” the comment section layout…

You know what is the worst part, you have check out your google + profile to see the notification comments.
God dammit Google!
Why you have to force all users to use that shit.

You know what’s worse? They probably will do it just because they can to show how powerful they are. Even worse is that they can do even worse changes because they know you can’t just abandon Youtube due to your favorite videos being there.

I have a suspicion that they want to get to compete with Facebook. Imagine the dangers of majority of social media being in hands of one company and what it could bring.

I love random Youtube videos. They’re always so interesting.

@xTSGx: Oh gawd. The tampons got me. This would be hilarious as a meme. Put the Titanic in there and shit. Or even better: A nokia!

@Youtube’s New Comment System: They just want to see how far they can go before they screw youtube over so bad that no one uses it. lol. I don’t think they get that no one wants to manage another social networking site when they already run a facebook and/or a twitter feed. Google+ offers no special advantages and is too complicated for the average internet user.

Anyone else enjoy Cyanide & Happiness’ new skits?

Also, I just found this guy. He’s mildly interesting. I think I could be friends with him if I actually met him. lol.

I bring with me grave news: Google is now applying a Hashtag system to YouTube. Someone higher up thought it was a good idea to give the community that started the “X People Missed The ‘Like’ Button” fad the ability to spam #YOLO and #SWAG across the website.

The horror… The horror…

Now you can create Ascii, and limitless spam, and have an endless characters.

Hm.

Predictions on how long the no character limit will last? Even facebook knows better than that.

The removal of the character limit is possibly the only good part of this update.

Just because it can be hilarious.

I actually saw someone post the first 10 sections of Bible’s Genesis for giggles.

Hey guys, uh, idk if you realized but Google is what’s called a COMPANY. What do companies do? Well I know what they don’t do. Care about you. They don’t care if you don’t like the new layout. Though, I don’t how it makes them more money, but whatever :/. But seriously, stop complaining.

Jesus F***ing! My sides! At first I was like “wut?” but then I couldn’t breath.

Edit: I was going to post some cheap music, but instead have this technolust. Beware of flash drives with ducks on them.

Quick throw a bolt at it!


MFW people can’t even find enough Youtube videos to bump this thread. Also this should be in JFF.

Dat electrical fireball. As a EE major I had to google what was happening here and thank god for reddit. Quite the event. I don’t think I’ve seen a Jacobs Ladder other than in this form:

Also here’s another example at a higher voltage.

And moving this to @JFF: I wasn’t sure if it should be JFF or General. I mean on the one hand it’s just fun videos, on the other they are “interesting, hot finds” and it was also meant to be for news like what happened to the comments, but then this thread and this thread happened. Guess Youtube is the exception to the “Avoid duplicate topics” rule.

True, I am too stringent; bad case of the OCDs.

This is relevant:

Although it appears as though some videos have escaped the whole transition such as this one which has the top comments section. It looks like youtube may be reverting back to some old stuff at last. Notice the likes are blue instead of red now.

You see that new Bob thing popping up so suddenly and worthlessly? The one with the tank? I can’t find any comments in the video it is spammed in.

No, I can’t see MY comment from like a day ago because of it. This new Bob trend is making me want to shoot myself. I hate something so worthless and annoying that I want to die. I hate it more than the new comment system. Heck, I can even say that it is worse than the whole Google+ change because of how people just spam because they want to change the comment system back, using that atrocious character.

When was the last time I saw Bob? 2010 the latest. I loved seeing it before because it was rare, but I can’t say that because I am so disgruntled to the fact that I can’t find good ascii or funny things with the endless comments.

I would want to end the new comment system just to stop that bullshit trend. I really dislike it because it is irrelevant to videos, the endless comments and overall everything not having to do with Google+.

AH! YouTube is down!

Edit: And about 50% of embedded are down as well. The rest work.

Edit Edit: Well that took about half an hour…something feels different though.

This, they keep doing very unnecessary things to YouTube, and I wish that they’d stop, but I don’t think they will.

Sorry Google, even though I commented loads upon loads, I will not get a Google+ account just to post a comment on YouTube.

Without animal videos, Youtube would only have a fifth as many videos.

Just ran across this video from Halloween ‘11 of this girl (probably stripper) twerking to Beethoven. They called it "BUTTHOVEN’S 5TH SYMPHONY." Quite clASSy if I do say so myself.

Hate to double bump, but I kinda am related to the conductor of this band. He helped me pick my trombone when I started band years ago. So awesome to see him do big things like this.
