Watching that video pulled me into the infinite time sink known as Vi Hart videos. The few that I were saw mathmatics based. Her voice at first convinced me that she was Myla Goldberg (author of the Bee Season and other novels) but it didn't take much "research" to quickly determine otherwise. OK, that was rambling. To the topic at hand, we certainly are throttled and I am convinced that Youtube is as throttled as anything. Not sure who is throttling, though. Is it Google or our ISP? It was interesting that as I was listening to the Vihart video, it stopped for a full 30 seconds. I happen to be the only one on line in our household... Mmmmm.... In fairness, I reduce my kiddies QOS on our router when someone is  being a bandwidth hogs.  I'll even throttle myself but it is at my own convenience... It's hard to blame Comcast, AT&T, and others for doing the same...

@Antedeluvian...on my wife's 40th I found a card that said on the front "So you're turning 40?  But you're not going to be cranky and grumpy and otherwise and snappy, are you?"  Inside it said "Of course you can!  Old people are like that!!"

If I hadn't bought her a nice flowery lovey-dovey card as well, I don't think I would be here now....

My favorite card (which works equally for both genders) is for your 50th birthday: It says "Happy Colonoscopy!"
