Watching random Youtube videos about cave/abandoned buildings exploration
Click on one
HAY GUYZ WHATS UP THIS IS JOSH HERE EXPLORING THIS ABANDONED HOSPITAL!
Skipping thought the video its all him filming him self looking round and all I can see is a tiny space behind him
I wish I could click dislike more than once, once for the bloody reaction censored, once for the shaky cam, once for the portrait perspective, once for the annoying voice and once for the crap Jedward style hair

the selfie generation really needs to die
I hate that exploring with Josh channel!! Abandoned UK does some really great videos.

BT! I upgraded my wifi router a few months ago. Now, it appears to lose either wifi connection or the internet connection. Funny thing is, it's only started doing this recently. I've gone back to the old router for the time being. Hmmm, never seemed to have these sorts of problems with my old broadband companies. I know lots of broadband companies have problems, and finding a good one can be hit-and-miss - but this is getting very annoying!

AHAHAHAHAHAHA BT. The stories I could tell. 6 months I've been trying to get them to bill me correctly, still not succeeded.

Using Youtube on my phone, an advertisment video handily loads in 2-3 seconds later than the rest of the search results so when you click on the top video, the ad suddenly appears and that opens instead! Surely this hasn't been arranged intentionally to trick people into watching the ad? No, somebody like Google wouldn't do that; of course not.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Hmmm, my internet speed is a bit slow, so I've reported it to BT. Last year, I upgraded to Infinity - but it turns out that I was too far away from the exchange, so couldn't get the full speed. I had to downgrade my package. Also, I reported the problem - so they sent out an engineer to check my line, but were going to charge me £50 if it was damaged on the outside of the building - bloody cheek! They didn't in the end. They did actually upgraded my old phone socket to an Open Reach one. So there was that. But, I've got to say that I can't recommend them so far.

How terrible Youtube searches are on Blogger.

I want to put in a Metallica video in my blog post and despite searching for the exact title it brings up one video which is a Simpsons video.

Eh.
