Same here, there was nothing to right-click on, I actually thought to try that even though it didn't seem there was anything there.

Sounds like FB didn't pay the ransom on their interconnect fees to your ISP.

Cool, thanks BoP. Care to explain further for those of us who don't speak HTML?

I just looked for the <src=> tag and ripped it right out of there.

You can also right-click the video and pick the option to show or copy the video URL.

If it actually loads more than a grey space, that's true. The video still wasn't even loading for me and it sounds like for others as well.

I agree with others, he got off easy.

Waiting didn't resolve it for me. Thirty minutes later it still wasn't loaded. Which I kind of expected since there was no indication there was loading going on..

Hey, you know how Paul Walker died? Yeah, and he was trained by professional race car and stunt car drivers.

Yeah, he was a passenger in a notoriously dangerous and difficult to drive Porsche that was being driven recklessly by someone else. However, I am in no way surprised that this was done by a BMW driver. They're probably the biggest douchebags on the road. Apparently in any country.
Perhaps, but still less entitled than Mercedes drivers (as long as we're painting with broad brushes)

EDIT: Ninja's by Cutter.

Maybe there are just more Beemer drivers where he lives but in my experience - no matter where I've been - Mercedes drivers take the cake for selfish pricks on the road. 'I drive an expensive car so I can do anything I want, nyah!'

It was slow to load for me as well, but I let it sit a few minutes and it did. Guy is a douchenozzle.
Am I wrong for wanting to see the car flip.

WOW, Musk's roadster is really hoofing it.

My friend gave me a ride in her Tesla. 0-60 in 4 seconds is a rush.

(Yes I know that has nothing to do with the Roadster Musk put into space. )

Huh, weird. The "Just because you can go fast.." video doesn't load for me. I land on the page, and the up or down vote icons are there as are all the comments but no video. Tried a search from Google, found it, but still the same happened.

Yeah, never really think about sewage that much given we're such a large country with such a small population. It must be a monumental issue for countries like China and India. A billion plus people a day taking a dump at least twice a day? *shudder* Best thing to get rid of the harmful bacteria in that case is encourage vegetarianism. Certainly not as much of a problem in India as it is in China.

Whilst the exposome is an interesting idea I don't see exactly how it's supposed to really help anyone if it can't change the environment they're in.

Don't forget what Kang said yesterday, "The politics of failure have failed. We need to make them work again. Tomorrow when you are sealed in the voting cubicle, vote for me. Senator Kan— Bob Dole."

and....

"It makes no difference which one of us you vote for. Either way your planet is doomed. DOOMED!"

Wrong. The definitive asshole on the road is the Mercedes driver. Most self-entitled, selfish, oblivious pieces of shit there are.
