ACTION PROPOSAL: BROADCAST YOURSELF

Proposal to O5 Council


To the O5 Council;

As most of you may know, a couple of days ago, we discovered an anomalous object in the form of a USB Drive connected to the computer of one of our Containment Specialists. Currently, the anomalous effect is as follows:

Describing the object in question on any electronic program will cause each word in the document to redirect to a seemingly random YouTube video.

Currently, we do not know what "YouTube" is. Upon clicking these links, it appears to be a video sharing site of some sort, however, we are unable to access it, due to the website "not existing." After some research, it was determined that YouTube is a website that will be founded in 2005, 3 years away from now.

The 3 people who will make this "YouTube" website: Jawed Karim, Steve Chen, and Chad Hurley, do not exist, as in no one on Earth exists that have these names that also match the description of their stated appearances. This is why I come to you with a proposal, Operation Broadcast Yourself.

In short, we will hire 3 people that look very similar to YouTube's founders, say that their names are Jawed, Steve, and Chad, and make YouTube ourselves in the year 2005, to prevent a paradox.

We will need to use the USB Drive as a catalyst for the Operation. As a sort of guiding light so that we know what kind of website YouTube is, and what we should do to not cause a paradox. That sort of thing.

Then, once YouTube has been established and no temporal anomalies have been detected, we will sell it to Google so that we don't have to take care of it anymore.
