It highly annoys me that people - who have been on EF like for ever - are not able to insert a video in their post.

So what you do when using the youtube button, you insert only what is after the v= in the link.

Example:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM

it will then look like this: [ YOUTUBE]y6Sxv-sUYtM[/YOUTUBE ] without the blanks you now see within the youtube-tags as I had to put them so it would show here and not be interpreted as html.

And then ..... bliss:



thanks for reading

reminds me of this video

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Suspension pauses /when we hear drum beat or awkward silence and camera moving to and fro participants/. Back in my days it was immediate, then it moved to 5 seconds, now its 10-12 seconds. FFS!

I have nothing but expired cr&p to eat /see my previous first-worldly whinge/, itching because of the dry air because of the heating, tired of locals wining about the refreshing wind, noone to bollock /OH swiftly f&cked off for a couple of days elsewhere/, I am overflowing with swear words..
Generally, that's me today....

Nighty night all.

Lure the neighbour's cat over for a cuddle and shops are open on Saturdays, even in Switzerland.

And this wind is not refreshing, it's annoying. But hey, if it's the only good thing in your life today, so be it.

@ Curley

It supposed to be a problem thread. (The first part about annoyance is good)

Instead of giving a solution thread. (The second part is merely a bonus)

Since when are we prudent Puritans?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Bought 100g bar of white chocolate today.
Never buy white chocolate.
Ate it up this evening.
Now I remember why I never buy white chocolate.



Was gonna write 'eat it up' but dictionary says that is archaic and I've already revealed my age re languages today.

I dropped a bottle of wine from shoulder height and it landed on my little toe. But the bottle didn't break.

I haven't thought of white chocolate in years.

Now you've made me think of white chocolate, with black currants.

Damn and blast.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

So when you accidentally fart while standing in line at Migros, do you own it by saying "Entschuldigung," or do you pretend it didn't happen?

(asking for a friend)
