How many hours have you spent huddled over a computer with your friends watching online videos? Or maybe they've forced you to look at their flickr photos they just put up and you are just trying to be nice.
You'd like to think the Most Important People In The World are above such trivial pursuits. You'd like to think the Most Important People In The World don't gather around computers to watch YouTube videos like teenagers.
Well, you'd be wrong.

I love the preposterous of this photo. Caption Contest!!! What do you think all these people are looking at?
BERKELEY, CALIF. - University of California junior center fielder Brett Jackson became the fourth-highest draft pick in Golden Bear baseball history when he was selected in the first round by the Chicago Cubs, and was the 31st pick overall, during the opening day of the 2009 Major League First-Year Player Draft on Tuesday, June 9. Jackson is the third first-round pick for the Golden Bears since 2000 under head coach David Esquer.
Jackson, from Orinda, Calif. (Miramonte High School), trails only right-hander Brandon Morrow, who was the fifth pick overall by the Seattle Mariners in 2006; shortstop/outfielder Ted Parks, who was the 16th pick overall by the Baltimore Orioles in 1966 and first baseman David Cooper, who was the 17th pick overall by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2008; as Cal's top draft picks. Jackson and Cooper were teammates on the Bears NCAA Regional team in 2008.
An outstanding left-handed hitting center fielder, Jackson was All-Pac-10 this past spring, batting .321 with 17 doubles (6th in Pac-10), six triples (2nd in Pac-10), eight home runs and 41 RBI. He was a 2009 first-team preseason All-American by Baseball America and was Cal's first, first-team preseason All-America selection since outfielder Brennan Boesch in 2006. He is tied for fourth on Cal's career triple list (11) and is tied for fifth on the Bears' single-season triple list (six in 2009).
