I went to watch the newest Crash Course video from the Vlog Bros. And by the way, I’ve come to think that they aren’t nearly as good as I had once thought. John Green, in particular, is very interesting and funny, but not very informative. In particular, I didn’t think his recent Renaissance video was good, insightful, or right. But that is a matter for another day.
Here is part of a screen capture of Hank’s most recent video:
Note the lower left hand corner: it says 302 views and 497 likes. How is it that more people like this video than have even viewed it?
It must be that YouTube updates the view total more slowly than it does the likes total. For example, when I reloaded the page just now, it still said 302 views but the likes were updated to 507.
Still, this is crazy. Who writes code like this?
