I was referred to, and viewed a youtube video on how to repair the door for our dishwasher. Very good demonstration, then following the video, took ours apart and replaced the lock and reassembled. very simple, very quick, and saved an expensive service call. So youtube does have some good uses.

Agreed, and yet we all watched it from start to finish along with thousands of other people. [emoticon] Pure, silly entertainment, just what we need right now!

You tube probably pays him $20k+ a month for the air time.


Yep, they probably will make way more money from youtube and facebook than what that truck costs. No different than a movie studio spending millions on some actor and millions more to make a movie all to make millions off of it. Or a football team spending millions on some football player to make millions off of them from the tickets, merchandise, TV deals, and so on. There really is no value out of either of these other than entertainment.


Too many forget youtube in an entertainment source. Want to learn something, search for that. Want to watch something that fits your taste for entertainment, search for that. No different than watching the news or the bachelor on TV. You have a choice.

I watched about 10 seconds....lol.
Must’ve related to the dill weeds doing the Ram Brodozer pulling contests. Those videos are another good lesson in the stupidity of some and what not to do!

Well it’s sad to see someone put so much money into a truck just to destroy it... such a wasteful society and or generation. I’m not by any means old.. but grew up poor and had to work for everything that I have.... so what I own I respect and take care of.... some people are just idiots...


A truck, a camper, a few toys, but most importantly a wonderful family.

Wasteful generation? I agree it is stupid and I didn't bother watching the video...

However destroying expensive things for entertainment of the masses (edit: and to make money) is nothing new to this generation. The technology has just changed.
