    They typically dive rivers, lakes and swimming holes to see what they can find.

    Great sense of humor and covers a lot of ground. I found him through his Dead Mall Series where he visits and documents large malls that are on their last legs. I spent 7 years in retail management so it is cathartic and satisfying watching these places die a slow death.

    He samples and reviews MREs from all over the world. And from all decades.

    What the flip! There’s other stuff on Youtube!!!

    Seriously though, apart from actual music performance (songs live and off albums) and guitar and music theory stuff, I don’t have any actual YouTube rabbit holes.

    Always loved a gadget so I dig the tech/gear reviews. These two are the best channels for that type of thing on YouTube:

    I watch almost every video that Scotty Cranmer puts out. He’s a former professional BMX rider who suffered a horrible accident while riding in 2016, and yet still films all of his buddies (Matty, Big Boy, Puppy Arms Bergler) riding BMX and doing silly contests among each other. I laugh so hard at those guys.

    Another vote for Steve1989MREInfo from me!

    I also like watching a lot of urbex. The Proper People channel is a great place to start as they have really high production values and interesting locations. Here's an example:


    LGR covers old computers and games. I haven't played computer games for about 20 years or so, but it used to be a big part of my life back in the old days and it's nice to have a reminder about the old hardware and stuff.


    Brutalmoose covers a lot of weird stuff, here he's doing thrift store find VCR tapes:


    Project Farm does a lot of really methodical testing of oils, adhesives, and other stuff. I have no idea why I find this so compelling. Here's a sample chosen at random:

    I fall asleep listening to WWII and Titanic documentaries just about every night. I have my laptop set with the brightness turned almost all the way down, and the volume just loud enough to hear without being too distracting. I can't sleep in total silence thanks to mild tinnitus, and that is my solution.

    Project farm is fascinating. I also like the folks who do restorations of old PCs and video games.
    Reminds me vaguely of Local58

    Not exactly a rabbit hole and sort of music-related, but I consume a fair bit of tinnitus retraining therapy videos.

    I like that MRE guy, it’s funny we probably all get the same recommendations, I like when he even smokes the cigarette rations from the 40’s. Ha

    I usually like to watch documentaries/ medical anomaly’s, nothing really specific

    There was enough going on in that conflict to keep you busy for years. My interest started 30 years ago, and I'm still discovering new things I hadn't previously known.

    Yep, a lot of documentaries and media focus the European theater, but there was a lot going on. Been dabbling in Russia's role in WW2 as well, there's alot of there there
