Learning about air filters on Youtube

Anything I want to learn, I can find on Youtube.

If I want to hear about historical figures, I can find a channel for that.

If I want to watch an old lady paint with her feet, or a man from Pakistan eating an orange for the first time, I can see that and more. Those are weird examples, of course, but the weirdest examples are the best examples of why Youtube is so unique and informative. The point is that anything you can think of is already on Youtube, waiting for you to find it. Last week I had an issue with my air conditioner, and I assumed that it was just a dirty air filter blocking up the system. Before I did anything else I searched Youtube for videos about air filter replacement, and I found something so odd but delightful. There is a man in another country, on the other side of the world, who takes discarded trash and recycles it into air filters. I spent over an hour watching fast-motion timelapse videos of this man making air filters by hand, and boy was he fast! He could make a dozen air filters in under an hour. After a while I realized that I had “fallen down a rabbit hole” and forgotten to look up a video on how I should change my own air filter. It only took a few minutes to watch the instructional video and remove the dirty air filter from my HVAC system. Then I had to go to the store and buy a new one, because I can’t make air filters out of trash.
