After spending countless hours mathematically deriving formulas, this YouTube Infographic offers hilarious 'Creator Calculations.' The infographic was illustrated by the graphic artist Drew Rueda for the online magazine New Media Rockstar. As the website jokes, its scientists, "have painstakingly derived multiple formulas from their YouTube studies to ascertain what specifically makes a type of content creator on YouTube." Though there may not be any aggregated data or scientific truth to these calculations, they do entertainingly cover the majority of video uploaders.

YouTube's content is filled with adorably dressed animal videos to makeup tips and beauty vlogs, hence the calculations provided by this infographic carry some truth. And, the calculations are accurate and amusing; for example giving a boy some weights and removing an unhealthy diet equals a buff beefcake uploading their workout regimens or body transformations to the web.
