    Apart from that, good luck to them. I think they drank a little too much celebratory champagne... :P

    Their account is "YouTube" and their profile says "Member Since: 37 years ago", AND they`re featured so I say they are...

    Wow 1.6 billion is a HUUUGE amount of money! I bet they wouldn`t have believed it if they were told that when they started.

    Haha YouTube is so strange, you can just see the confusion in the media... It`s really seems to be changing things.

    Ive been pretty well informed that youtube has been loosing money for a while tho, so im sure they have some debts to clear, but however you look at it... they are not going to have to work again for the rest of their life....

    Anyone want to start a youtube competitor?

    Well, basically they do. There isn`t one gene for intelligence or one gene for beauty, so half the genes you get from pops would contribute to your intelligence, and the other half would contribute to your beauty, leaving you at a decent average. That being said, it would be likely that many people would end up being more like one parent than the other, but the population as a whole would be generally rounded out to be a bit less attractive and a bit more intelligent.
