Tell that to Peter, a 79 year-old “living in the middle of England”, who as geriatric1927 has become the latest start of YouTube. He’s already had 430,000 views of his videos, approaching 7,000 subscribers and almost 9,000 comments.

Thanks to Antony Mayfield for the story (thanks to Rob Skinner I’m no longer doing hat tips because he’s right and I’m wrong to use jargon).
