The thing with YouTube is that we now can't imagine life without it. Seriously. What did we do with our evenings when we weren't looking at Zoella's shopping bags, watching Dan and Phil play The Sims and laughing at cats wearing bonnets?

These days, the whole world can have a watch of your weird, disastrous life if you want 'em to.

At least we've all learned something useful.

Little did we know just HOW MUCH time could truly be wasted on the internet.

What a time to be alive.

Thank GAHD we're safely back in door, constantly staring at pixels and watching Dan and Phil play The Sims on repeat. Ahhhh YouTube, you da best.

What was YOUR life like before YouTube? It's pretty terrifying to remember, but let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
