It’s a silly hamster video on YouTube, by the way, further confirming my notion that YouTube is for two types of people: 1) Those who have too much time on their hands, and; 2) Those who will watch anything because they have too much time on their hands (there are days that I am both).

In August 2006, I was reviewing a mobile phone for T3 magazine and wanted to test its video recorder. I ended up filming my Syrian hamster, Hamster Dam, going about her business—either trying to escape or hoarding food. I posted it on YouTube for kicks, not expecting it to earn more than ten views. It’s received 14 comments and 13,114 views as I write this. But really, it’s just a silly video.
