Tag fail.

It's not that bloody hard: copy-paste the URL, select the line and click the YouTube button above the edit field.

I have on several occasions done EXACTLY what you described and it still did not work. So that is not the problem. What? You mean technology isn't infallible? No...really? The problem is either with my browser, internet connection or something on this end. So I shut all my windows, did it exactly as before, and it worked perfectly. :lol:

See, happened again...back in a jiff. This is hilarious. It's about the Star Trek versus Star Wars conflict and why it is stupid and pointless...and also why Twilight is bad for science fiction. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/­­0,2817,2397546,00.asp?kc=PCRS­S­03069TX1K0001121 ...Takei warned that a hot war between Star Trek and Star Wars fans could have unintended consequences, as pictured at right—and keep in mind that Jedi mind powers will not work on Shatner the Hutt. And besides, there's a greater peril out there for fans of both space operas, he cautioned."What's needed today, now, more than ever, is 'Star Peace,'" Takei said. "For there is an ominous, mutual threat to all science fiction. It's called 'Twilight.' And it is really, really bad. Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie, or epic battle. In its place, we have vampires ... that sparkle, moan, and go to high school. "Now, I'm not above mixing in a little sex appeal to spice up the fantasy. But sci-fi fans, be warned: there are no great stories, characters, or profound life lessons to be had in Twilight. No. In Twilight, the only message that rings through loud and clear is, 'Does my boyfriend like me?'"

It keeps happening. I have no idea why. Any suggestions?

After the = in a youtube link there are numbers and letters which are important, everything after that you can delete.

There, I thought I would add two quotes intrinsically related to everything I have posted today. Plus one is from Dune and one is from a Gene Roddenberry related science fiction TV series.

Can you see the mistake in this post? The tags are wrong, the first one isn't complete, and the ending tag is missing. If you worry about typing out tags incorrectly you can always highlight the link and then click the "youtube" button, then your link will be wrapped in the proper tag for you. That works for any of the tags.

Also, when you mess up, you can edit your post instead of making an extra post.

I'll keep that in mind, but I prefer to just use the post as an opportunity to edit it and add some Dune/SciFi related quotes that add quite nicely to the over all effect. Turning mistakes into opportunites if you will.

The last post was an error. It is of questionable authenticity. If fact, there is no reference what so ever in the Jewish religion about a secular state. So it is a political and non religious issue.

Video: UFO filmed hovering over Russian protesters

On the other hand, wouldn't the aliens want the crowds below to be distracted by earthly political conflicts as the space craft hatched bigger plans for Planet Earth? We're just saying. . . .


How little they know of alien methods. :snooty:

Holy crap was that obviously a helicopter. Seriously, people wonder why I don't believe any ghost or alien stories at all when there are this many idiots out there...

To be fair, the article DOES say that just because it's unidentified (I can't, never seen anything like that and since before being a cavalry scout in the army I've prided myself in being able to identify aircraft) that doesn't mean it's extraterrestrial.

Um... Sorry, Freakzilla. I don't understand how your choice of news links supports your political/sociological viewpoint. :?
'...all those who took part in the rise and fall of the Dune project learned how to fall one and one thousand times with savage obstinacy until learning how to stand. I remember my old father who, while dying happy, said to me: "My son, in my life, I triumphed because I learned how to fail."' -Alejandro Jodorowsky
