Thank goodness for YouTube!

Recommended Posts

I rebuilt the trim unit on my boat a couple of years ago as it sprung a leak. It worked great until Tuesday. It would raise the motor but not hold it. I was about to tear it back down when I decided to check YouTube. Sure enough, a guy on there with a short and concise video had already ran into this. All I had to do was pull out a screw and replace an o-ring. He sure made for a more enjoyable weekend. I’m tempted to get his address and send him some money.

YouTube is probably the greatest invention since books and libraries for getting stuff done.

Anytime I start a project I haven’t done before I always use YouTube for tips and how to videos.

We’ve also found Marty Schwartz to be a great guitar teacher on YouTube.

I would definingly agree that to be the truth for the DIY'ers.     On the other hand, I'm guessing the commercial service industry has taken a big hit in revenue because of it.  

There's been some repair/remodeling projects come up in the past that I've never done before and somewhat hesitant to tackle on my own until I've watched some videos.    I usually come away with saying, "I can do that", assuming I have the proper tools.  If not, buying the tools myself is still usually cheaper than paying someone else.  .

We’re it not for You Tube, I would still be happily stripping out screw heads on Jap bikes and would still be blissfully unaware of the JIS screwdriver.

A couple of months ago got a hankering for some Canadian bacon. Watched a couple of you tube videos and now make Canadian bacon when I want too.

Sure is. Looks like hell: runs like a top! My younger son and I caught quite a mess of catfish from it last Tuesday evening.

I know Dave, the guy that made the video you saw. I’m sure he wouldn’t care if I PM’d you his address and you sent him some money.

This guy is the man! I'm guessing you're joking. If not, I'd like to find him.

I learned how pretty much all the finer points I know about how to cook through YouTube videos.  Amazing resource.

I just watched a video that helped me over a hump in the brake job I'm doing.

When I was a kid, my dad and I used to start out car projects at the library. Now we usually start on YouTube.

1st video must be "How to hunt, butcher, and cook a Possum in a cast iron skillet over an open fire while wearing no shoes". Just so we set the tone. :biglol:

(Coming from a born, bred, and lifelong TN resident by the way. My family resembles that video...)
