Not that this seems to be bothering anybody else ...

Things just seem off with those YouTube videos y'all keep embedding in your posts.

Oddly, clicking through to the comment view ended up changing the displayed "still" to what appeared to be the intended video. I wonder what would be causing this "ghosting" of videos that completely different journals had posted?


Just so y'all don't think I'm hallucinating ... here's a screen capture of hollie_is_right's post of a clip of Ann Coulter on Hannity & Colmes:

Despite the temptation to try to assign "Professor" and "Skipper" roles to those involved in the actual clip, this is somehow a "leftover" YouTube still from a embedded clip in a post made by lefin1 a couple of days ago!

My brain hurts.
