19 Keeper Links

I get a lot of YouTube links forwarded to me. Everyone gets a lot of YouTube links forwarded to them. It's just part of life.

Then there are other times when you can get in one of those procrastinating vortexes where you watch a YouTube link and after it ends there are all these related links on the right side of the page and you click on one, and then another, and so on-- for hours. (I did this recently watching famous Presidential debate moments, which led me to JFK-Nixon debate moments, which eventually led me to a ridiculously graphic video of JFK's assassination, which in turn left me unable to sleep for awhile. Bad times.)

Anyway, in the course of all of these forwards and vortexes, you mostly come across a bunch of moderately entertaining, not-so-memorable clips. Here and there, though, you come across a keeper.

Here are 19 keeper links:

Let's start off with an old classic. I try to bring this one back into my life every couple months or so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVR1JunnuGE

Funny clip + Japanese = Hilarious clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwvVh0_ZelI

I love seeing anyone get really furious, but especially Bill O'Reilly. He is a very bad man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tJjNVVwRCY

Short, but wonderful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwNi8dzj0S8

Another classic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OBlgSz8sSM

You will get choked up. Mark my words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVNTdWbVBgc

This one's made the rounds. The teleprompter stops working on this guy. Kind of long and slow, but also pretty special: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W45DRy7M1no

The funniest transformation in the world. I know I've posted this before, but I need to post it again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kWqLXP62gI

I've never seen anything like this. It's addictive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ysqh1uzqGrc

Seems too good to be true, but it's real: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=we9_CdNPuJg

If you haven't seen Obama and McCain's roasts of each other, they're worth watching:

McCain's: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N-j0W6MW-U
Obama's: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yY-cUUF3a1E

While we're on politics, this hijacked about four hours of my time: http://www.newsmeat.com/celebrity_political_donations/ -- after looking through celebrity donations, click the "Donor Search" tab and search for everyone you know.

This is rich: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyrvnAq4HLw

You probably want to skip over this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxv6R9fUO74

I had never seen Mitch Hedberg stand-up until someone sent this to me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IueXtzdC6kA -- if you like it as much as I did, there's a lot more here.

This is intense: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dj298NRTO8

This guy makes me incredibly angry and jealous: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlfKdbWwruY

And let's finish off with Dmitri. Good old Dmitri. Apparently these are real messages that the girl saved and they ended up on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhofSilF05k

Dmitri sounds like the guy I went out on a date with last week. I'm dying laughing over here.

Haha, I can so imagine how this Matt guy makes you angry and jealous! You'll have to find your own performance niche on your travels. You're already doing a fantastic job with your travel reports and this Matt guy cannot top it!
