...and then the ape discovered YouTube's slo-mo function

Who knew? You can vary the speed of videos on YouTube! I gather this feature has been around since forever, but tonight was the first time I tried it out. There's a gear icon at the lower-right corner of any given video screen; click the icon, and you'll see a menu that includes "Speed." Click on that, set the speed to 0.5, and enjoy a bunch of drunken slurring. I tried it with a video of myself speaking French here.

I've often used this function to watch some videos at 1.5x or even 2x to save time, especially if the speaker talks slowly. You'd be surprised at how quickly you get used to the speed.
