It's only recently, since finally getting DSL, that I have been able to explore the great phenomenom known as youtube. Yes there is a lot of garbage, wierdness, and general stupidity to be found on youtube. But actually, we have found a great many clips that were interesting, and even educational. Several mornings recently have found us all gathered at the computer on the breakfast table, looking up video clips on assorted interests. We've shown the boys demonstrations of various martial arts, clips of tourist destinations in other countries, a few clips of soldiers' lives in Iraq (had to hunt for appropriate ones there), some very creative hot wheels track configurations, assorted archery demonstrations (amazing!), Japanese robot fighting, silly animal videos (they love those), time-lapse videos of the Panama canal, medieval jousting, soap bubble experiments. . . all sorts of stuff! It's been great.
