One of the best things about YouTube, in my opinion, is the amount of videos available from colleges and universities around the world. If you haven’t seen this for yourself, I highly recommend searching YouTube Channels for the word “college” or “university.” Literally every major institution of higher education has a Channel. But be warned, this will undoubtedly lead to a YouTube Spiral</a>.
Watching YouTube videos is addictive, but perhaps this goes without saying in 2015. In 2014, during the height of the “Gangnam Style” craze—you remember the music video by South Korean pop star Psy that went viral last year—The Economist created a chart comparing the time spent watching the video on YouTube to the time it took to build the Empire State Building, the Great Pyramid, and Stonehenge, among others. It turns out, we could have built 20 Empire State Buildings in the time we spent watching Psy dance.
