8-Year-Old Boy Drives Little Sister To McDonald's To Get Cheeseburger

By Mustafa Gatollari

It's insane the kind of tutorials you can find on YouTube. If you spend enough time on the Internet, you can find a tutorial for anything. A few weeks ago, I was toying around with the idea of picking up a used Porsche 944 against better judgment and found a cheap used one that needed to have its clutch replaced. Lo and behold, multiple step-by-step guides existed. 

Actually going through the trouble of sitting through the tutorials, studying them, and committing them to memory is another thing entirely. The second I saw that replacing the clutch was a lot of work, I mentally phased out. It was just another reminder that I'm not someone who is turned on by a challenge, but moreso a reminder that buying a used car from the '80s and trying to fix it myself despite being a pretty crappy handyman with zero patience was a terrible idea.

But some people see YouTube tutorials and are inspired by them and actually gain new skills.
