Down the YouTube rabbit hole

(88 Posts)

Whenever I can't sleep I always end up down the YouTube rabbit hole.

I start by watching a normal video about ghosts/paranormal then end up 20 videos deep in conspiracy theories and stuff like "10 biggest mysteries of the ocean" Or people doing ASMR. I even sat and watched hair curling tutorials simply because of boredom one sleepless night.

What do you watch on YouTube when you're bored?

Ha yes me too! 1980s adverts here, or music. I end up following a music trail and getting —obsessed— interestedin a particular artist!

TrudeauGirl Thu 26-Apr-18 20:26:06

Same! I watch adverts from the 1990s the "I like to chew it chew it" Chewitt idea why grin

Tsunami's. I'm terrified of them but find myself fascinated by them.

I spent two hours watching adverts once.
And I lost a week off to smtv live sketches

Vintage adverts

Ear wax removal and pimple popping videos grin

Old comedy programmes I'd forgotten until they pop up in 'recommended'.

It's amazing how much time you can lose to YouTube

And yeah I think Tsunamis and other natural disasters are sad/scary but very fascinating.

I used to like abandoned theme parks, mansions etc. Now I watch ear wax removal mostly.

I'm a sporner grin

Episodes of Ellen, Carpool Karaoke. I watched back to back Bruno Mars videos till 2am a couple days of weeks ago. I'm not even that much of a fan. 80s tv shows. I darent let myself start on the ASMR stuff.
It's like crack, I can't stop watching.

Irish crochet tutorials. Went looking for something to show me how to do it and ended up subscribed to some russian channel. They must have absolutely nothing else to do, there's so much of it!

Ear wax removal and pimple popping videos

I can't do the pimples confused but I've seen a few ear wax ones

I love watching hair bleach disasters or haircut fails. I know..i lead a boring life

Ginger1982 Thu 26-Apr-18 20:37:44

I usually end up on soldier's homecomings!

TrudeauGirl Thu 26-Apr-18 20:37:47

Or those "24 hours in tesco/Ikea" videos, stupid but addicting when im bored!

ScreamingValenta Thu 26-Apr-18 20:41:17

Nothing more relaxing than settling down to watch a dilated pore of winer being excavated ....

Have you watched Buzzfeed Unsolved? You start off checking out one, thinking it’s alright but a bit basic so you watch another episode than another than another, and then you realise that you’re addicted to it so start to watch the Q&A episodes.

The two main guys Shane and Ryan have excellent chemisty(although Shane wasn’t in the earlier episodes), if you like paranormal and mysteries then I recommend. Shane is the sceptic who takes nothing seriously and Ryan is scared of his own shadow.

I subscribe to a few channels for creepy pastas, archaeology and to numberphile. So if I wake up at two in the morning, that's where I go.

When I've just dived in, I ended up at 3D-painting, Japanese paper art, and tutorials on book binding.
Occasionally I watch housewives explain why they organize their books by color and height - in a language I don't really understand.

TrudeauGirl Thu 26-Apr-18 20:44:48

Have you watched Buzzfeed Unsolved?

I'll have to check it out. If you like unsolved mysteries have you seen the mystery of Elisa Lam? It's chilling

Redcrayons Thu 26-Apr-18 20:54:38

Blooper reels from TV shows.

Think I'll be pulling an all-nighter with some of these suggestions. grin

Food! I watch food!

It started as watching cupcake tutorials but has expanded into savoury dishes, normally involving cheese, pastry and meat!

I’m on a really strict diet at the moment and go to sleep hoping to dream that I’m eating!

Also the channels Ashens and Barshans. I lose so much time to them.
