Exciting times, earlier on we uploaded our first video to our Vexing Point YouTube channel. Go us!

One of the things we wanted to do when we started this blog was write/talk about stupid stuff in the news and while we have done that a little bit (OK hardly at all) we’ve decided to make an effort to rectify this and we figured the bestest most funnest way of doing that was by doing a short YouTube video each day.

Our first video was about the story where a mother was complaining her babysitter wanted to be paid minimum wage which you can watch here.

Any advice, tips, suggestions on how we can make our videos better would be great to hear.

And if you come across any interesting news stories you think we’d like send them our way.
