It's a link to another site, but how many of these have you seen?

Well aye. You can read a positive into how may you haven't seen (I tend to). But as my comment below, Badger Mushroom is one everyone should have...

How many times did you let it cycle through before you figured out it was a continuous loop? ;-)

That's not to say that I stopped it after 2 or 3 loops though... L

Try reading "magic" instead of "badger" when you listen to it... L

Definitely something psylocybe and psychotropic.

I'd forgotten about the llama song, but if that's TV as I think it is, then it wouldn't count.

Mind you, without Badger Mushroom this is nothing...

Wow there is some old stuff on there. I count 57, but that's without clicking and checking them. Now should we list everything you should never see on the Internet? A cup and goats come to mind.

Apparently, I'm old. As an annoying aside, I often get an error on youtube as illustrated in the screenshot below - the image flickers between normal size and squidged in the corner, two ot three times a second. It makes videos impossible to watch. Is there a fix I need to install, or is my PC just wearing out?

Don't worry you are not missing anything good, (judging by the videos on that list). Yes, I'm old too. instructables and Wikipedia should definitely be on there.

Oo? I've not seen that type of glitch on YouTube. Perhaps upgrading the Flash player will fix it?

Since the intro movie on that page was very jerky (but not the same way as the youtube thing), I guess I need the new player.

Downloading now.

Let us know if it works. I think I've got one that I've yet to actually install. L

Didn't seem to. The odd thing is that i can watch the videos embedded elsewhere without a problem.

. No idea what would cause that, but the first thing I would try is resizing the browser window. Maybe the video adjusts for smaller windows and your window size is on the cusp. Just a wild guess. . If that doesn't work, I'd try a different browser. . If that doesn't work, I'd remove and re-install the codec(s) associated with YouTube videos (Flash?).

Hmm. I think the "should have" is obviated by "almost certainly would have" when it comes to Wikipedia. But I think Instructables and Gutenberg should be on the list. L

. I've been online since the mid-1970s and on the 'Net since the mid-1980s and I've only seen about 25-33% of those. (Maybe more; I quit looking after the first 30-40.)

You see, for me we got the internet at 28kbs in the first place. I remember we had to have a timer next to the screen, so we wernt on for longer than an hour. I think my dads computer had a 400mhz processor £1000 worth at the time. My iPod touch is higher spec than his computer was.
