WTF JUST HAPPENED?!?! Answered
I wanted to watch the video on this page, but I have dial-up (it would take forever to load, and I would have to be able to resume it because I wouldn't be able to download the whole thing in one sitting), so I got the link for the file in the HTML and downloaded it separately so I could resume it. I reinserted the local file link to the downloaded file into the HTML of the original page to see if I could get it to play in the "blip" video player.
Well, it didn't quite work. And the results that I got almost made me shart my self (s**t and fart at the same time). A low-res 8 second video that displayed the words "are you afraid of the dark" while a camera went through tall grass (typical horror movie setting), with the sound of a heart beat in the background. Yes, it scared the hell out of me, although, after watching the movie in a very small screen so nothing in it would actually make me shart myself this time, I couldn't discern any objects or otherwise likely scary things.
Yes, holy shat. What the blam just happened? Mind you this was a week ago.
