YouTube videos I watch repeatedly while proscrastinating

In addition to sporcling, I twiddle around on youtube for hours at a time and watch a lot of the same videos. To help you further procrastinate, here's a sampling of those:

Sporcles of the Day

So I've been distracted by studying for the bar and have been derelict in my sporcle duties. So to make up for it, here's THREE sporcles for today.

SOTD: US Cities with Seven Letters

http://www.sporcle.com/games/7letteruscities.php

12/23. For some reason I starting thinking six letters instead of seven part way through the quiz and got really pissed off when it wouldn't take El Paso or St. Paul which then led me to abandoning the quiz to get on Wikipedia and verify that El Paso and St. Paul have populations greater than 210,000.

SOTD: Border Countries

http://www.sporcle.com/games/bordercountriesii.php

19/30. Hope you know your Balkan and Southeast Asian geography.

SOTD: Top-Selling Soft Drinks

http://www.sporcle.com/games/topsellingbev.php

8/10. How far in front #1 is is a tad surprising seeing as I don't know anyone for whom it's their favorite soft drink.

SOTD: Actors Playing Lawyers

http://www.sporcle.com/games/fictionallawyers.php

21/30. I'm pretty sure I would have liked this quiz a lot more if it asked me to name the lawyer rather than the actor. Oh well.

SOTD: President's Middle Names

http://www.sporcle.com/games/presidential_middle_names.php

19/26. Don't even waste your time guessing at Warren Harding's, unless you're Kyle, in which case I'll give you the hint that he was named after the grandson of Hillel the Elder.

SOTD: Alliterative Names

http://www.sporcle.com/games/alliterative_names.php
19/24. Ugh, not one of my better efforts. Note, the 75th time you type in Arthur Ashe is no more correct than the 1st time.

SOTD: Before and After

http://www.sporcle.com/games/beforeandafter.php

Finished with 2:59 remaining. Obviously I loved this quiz as Before and After is my favorite Jeopardy category. If you aren't familiar with the Jeopardy category, definitely read the instruction at the top.

SOTD: Bordering States and Provinces

http://www.sporcle.com/games/bordering_states.php

19/24. I missed 4 provinces and I even missed a freaking state because I kept trying to guess provinces instead so I'm a little pissed about that one.

Move over T-Swizzle and T-Pain

There's a new leader in the clubhouse for the greatest thing in the history of the world. I can't even begin to tell you how happy this video makes me and how pissed I am this guy stole my idea. Oh, and because I both used a sports analogy and this is a guy proposing to a girl, it's totally not gay.

SOTD: Common four-letter crossword answers

http://www.sporcle.com/games/4letter_crossword.php

21/30. The freaking fencing weapon is seriously on like 10% of the crosswords I do and I can't ever come up with that damn word. I always try to make 'foil' fit and it never does and I can't ever think of it until I get 2 or 3 letters and than I finally remember it.
