Gee, ya think they could have put their news logo somewhere on that video so we knew where it came from?

"Police will allege in court that a man caught on CCTV skulking around the front of a Wentworthville shop moments before it spectacularly exploded on Tuesday morning was the shop's owner, Mr Jomaa"

If Mr. Jomaa's the guy with a farkton of broken bones, do we really have to alledge that he might not be guilty? This seems rather open-and-shut to me. I'm not a lawyer, but I think I could successfully prosecute this dude.

Dear website operators,

Please stop making it so I have to allow no less than 4 different domains the ability to run Java applets on my computer just so I can view your embedded video.  Seriously, this java-generated embed inside a java-generated iframe inside another java-generated iframe crap needs to stop.  Just embed the goddamn video in one iframe and call it done.

Sincerely,
The entire internet

Wow.....looks like a group of looters showed up in less than a minute.

Chadi Jomaa doesn't rhyme with Garak at all.

Damn, that guy got owned by his own arson attempt.

Years ago as a fireman we did some training with the local bomb squad and he described this sort of thing as the  DOFA:  Dance of the Flaming Asshole.     Another DOFA member is guys who throw molotov cocktails overhand pouring gasoline on themselves.

My rule is to "temporarily allow" twice. Any more than that, they must want to keep it a secret.

Consequently there are huge chunks of the Innertube that are kept secret from me. For instance, did we win the war? Oh, that's good, Mr Lincoln can set the darkies free now.

They have to otherwise the Daily Mail will just put it up as an exclusive on their own website.

Get rid of the Java plugin -- there ain't no need for that on the modern intarwobs.

The inability to watch a news report video is nothing compared to the joy of almost never seeing an ad, ever, on any page.  The well made sites still have usable video, linked in with - as indicated above - one or two domains.

For the completionist, you can install greasemonkey and write scripts to parse out pieces of the page or  head over to userscripts.org and grab one someone's already written for your favorite specific social site.

Good, I'm not the only one who thought that. Those were, in fact, police officers trying to pull someone out of the rubble.

It's bad of me, but I had to snicker at the fact that the guy "broke both his legs, injured his pelvis and neck, and received burns to his face", and has officially been refused bail.

Also, someone else who approves:

That's not Garak.
I'll bet you think all Cardassians look alike.
