    Has anyone seen geriatric1927's videos on YouTube? He's something different for YouTube, a lovely older (78) gentleman talking about his life. He's now the second most subscribed to user on YouTube, after Brookers.
    At first I thought, meh, his videos were all quite long so I couldn't be bothered but now I'm hooked, he's led a really interesting life and its addictive watching him talk.

    Have a look at his videos:

    Saw his videos after following a link on the Yahoo! Homepage. Great to see its not only this-generation of people using computers.

    Hahahha. I love that. I saw his first one and I was laughing. I never thought it would turn into a series.

    I will make sure my grandpa does not see this, or else he will want to do it.

    My grandparents only know how to use email and look up the weather on the computer. I'm safe to say they won't be doing any YouTubing.

    I like listening to geriatric's stuff. It's interesting. I'm suprised there are some idiots on there cussin' him out. Pathetic.

    Some other funny youtube bloggers are 'suttsteve', a 40 year old man who lives with his family in a trailer in rural Georgia, and 'narnna', this really weird woman.

    Anyone follow lonelygirl15 and danielbeast? Two teenagers from New Zealand. They were best friends, then daniel told her he liked her and drama unfolded. :eek:
    It's kind of pathetic, but I still watch. :rolleyes:
