wikipedia + youtube

If there is something on my to-do list that I really don't want to do, I am notorious for killing time and procrastinating long as possible to put it off.
I usually end up on the Wikipedia website just reading about one thing after another because I find it so fascinating. I love that website! You find yourself clicking from one article to another because they link all the words that have another article on that topic. It's so genius, and a huge trap for wasting time. But is learning really wasting time? I think not... haha.

I stumbled upon Wikipedia's page on YouTube, and this sentence just blew me away!

"YouTube is currently not profitable, with its revenues being noted as "immaterial" by Google in a regulatory filing. Its bandwidth costs are estimated at approximately $1 million a day. It is estimated that in 2007, YouTube consumed as much bandwidth as the entire Internet in 2000."
