Great YouTube Channels to Waste Your Time Over Summer
By Simon Thompson
We've all been there. It's 5AM on a weekday night and you're stuck in the depths of a YouTube rabbit hole with no signs of escape. You're not exactly sure what you've been doing for the past five to sixty hours, but all you know is that you've learnt nothing.
A good YouTube binge can't go amiss sometimes, especially when you're stuck round your parents’ house during the summer, thousands of pounds in debt. However, it's easy to get lost along the trail. Being an expert YouTube addict, let me guide you through the best places to go for that sweet sweet content.
Ideas worth sharing is their motto. “Hang on a minute!", I hear you saying, “I'm on a break from education, the last thing I want to do is learn more stuff!" Don't be fooled, TED isn't your standard educational programme, they gather speakers from all over the world and deliver only the best and most interesting ideas. There are literally hundreds of talks and subjects to sink your teeth into, all more interesting than the next.
Here's a good starting point...
With this, all you need is a starting point rather than a specific channel. Over the past few years, a wave of public prank videos has been flooding the internet from various YouTubers. One good prank video can lead you on to endless amounts of juicy content in the related videos section. Use this one at your own risk as you can get lost for hours.
Here's a good starting point...
Have you ever done that thing where you line up loads of dominoes, tip them over, and watch them fall in succession? Well, how about a channel entirely dedicated to that? Yes, it's just hours on end of dominoes falling over - but don't be fooled by the concept, this guy takes it to a whole new level. Imagine that one though.
"So, where do you work?" “Oh, I tip dominoes over for a living."
Who needs a degree!?
Do you like pointless information? Of course you do, you're at university. How about having thousands of books worth of pointless knowledge beamed into your mind in ten minute internals, heatedly over the course of a week? If this sounds interesting to you, then check out Vsauce.

The Slow Mo Guys
Glorious, absolutely glorious. Hours on end of stuff blowing up, guns being shot, and people getting hurt, all in high-end slow motion. It’s great even if you've never been curious as to what someone's tongue getting trapped in a mouse trap looks like in slow-motion. It's always good to find these things out.
We're getting deeper into the depths now. Now here's a strange character. This guy basically videos himself eating weird objects that the audience requests, ranging from cactuses to bottles of vodka. It's worth watching just for the weirdness.
Damn internet, you scary...
I don't even know how to describe this one. He's a blogger, but is always working on loads of projects that fans can get involved in. As well as being funny, his videos often have a bit of social commentary.
The sort of content that makes you laugh, then hits you with a train of feels...

Climate change is a hot topic at the moment, no pun intended- and whilst our scorching summer was perfect for sitting outside with a few icy Strongbow dark fruits, there was a much more sinister feel to the whole affair.
