Have you noticed that sometimes in English we use "to go" and other times we use "going"? In this class you are going to learn about whether to use the infinitive or the gerund version of a verb.

Infinitive simply means that we use the verb with to, and without conjugation. For example here are some infinitives:

to be
to go
to eat

Gerund simply means that we remove the "to" and we add -ing to the end of the verb, for example:


There are two categories of verbs in English, those that are used in the infinitive and those that are used in the gerund, when used with other verbs. For example:

I want to eat pizza (infinitive).
I avoid eating pizza (gerund).

There are also some verbs that can be used in both forms:

I hate to eat pizza (infinitive).
I hate eating pizza (gerund).

So how do you know which one to use? Well, the first thing to remember is that the vast majority of verbs take the infinitive, and all modal verbs take the infinitive too. So, really all you need to do is memorise the verbs that take the gerund. Here is a non-comprehensive list:


Now the list above should be sufficient for most people, and for most situations, but there are some verbs can take both infinitive or gerund, and sometimes this can change their meaning completely. Let's look at the most important examples.

There is also a special category of verbs called modal verbs, which use neither the infinitive, nor the gerund. There are less than 10 common modal verbs in English, and they are:


With these verbs we use the infinitive, but without the "to", for example:

I can eat a lot of pizza.
They should eat less pizza.

Now you should be a true master of verb conjugations. See you in class!

About the Site 🌐

This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random. πŸŽ₯

Origins of the Idea 🌱

The original idea for this site stemmed from the need to benchmark the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. 🧠

Challenges Faced πŸ€”

Obtaining a large sample of videos was crucial for accurate ranking, but YouTube lacks a direct method to gather random video IDs.

Even searching for random strings on YouTube doesn't yield truly random results, complicating the process further. πŸ”

Creating Truly Random Links πŸ› οΈ

The YouTube API offers additional functions enabling the discovery of more random videos. Through inventive techniques and a touch of space-time manipulation, we've achieved a process yielding nearly 100% random links to YouTube videos.

About YouTube πŸ“Ί

YouTube, an American video-sharing website based in San Bruno, California, offers a diverse range of user-generated and corporate media content. 🌟

Content and Users 🎡

Users can upload, view, rate, share, and comment on videos, with content spanning video clips, music videos, live streams, and more.

While most content is uploaded by individuals, media corporations like CBS and the BBC also contribute. Unregistered users can watch videos, while registered users enjoy additional privileges such as uploading unlimited videos and adding comments.

Monetization and Impact πŸ€‘

YouTube and creators earn revenue through Google AdSense, with most videos free to view. Premium channels and subscription services like YouTube Music and YouTube Premium offer ad-free streaming.

As of February 2017, over 400 hours of content were uploaded to YouTube every minute, with the site ranking as the second-most popular globally. By May 2019, this figure exceeded 500 hours per minute. πŸ“ˆ
