Videos and fans
Two observations:

YouTube / Google Video / MySpace Video can be an infinite time sink.

Most "professional" music videos suck, and are better made by fans.

Youtube had me hooked the first time I saw the "Urban Ninja" vid, and recognized the mall he was doing some of his stunts in.

The only thing I've found to be a bigger eater of time than Youtube is the "Create a Motivational Poster" thread on rpg.net. For similar reasons, really.

Try YouTube on Dial-up....

...and all your friends on LJ keep linking to the damned thing....

That sort of thing is why I have the FlashBlock plugin installed. Any Flash applet doesn't download. Instead I get a grey square where it wants to go, with a big "play" button on it. If I press that button, *then* the Flash downloads and runs.

LJ actually has a setting for that too, Video Placeholders IIRC.

It's not that the videos load. For me they don't anyway, it's just that if my friends linked to them, they must be worth SEEING, so it takes half an hour or more to get them.R
