Re: YouTube Of The Day

I'm sure it wasn't glorifying the injuries and death. You'll want no links to the crashes in the icy tunnel then

Re: YouTube Of The Day

I did not say "glorify" anywhere - but to post a tram accident where people actually got killed (and you can SEE it on the video) does not belong in the "Jokes/Funnies" section in my opinion (or really anywhere else in a forum - I am surprised youtube hasn't pulled it, considering they pulled a few people dressed up as chipmunks/mickey mouse dry humping)

But I'm just a humble new member and if the admins and mods of this forum think that this is quite okay, then maybe I am just in the wrong forum.

Re: YouTube Of The Day

Whilst the tone of this thread was originally humour, perhaps you can consider the tram video to be something to remember when you're stood at a tram stop.

It was not clear to me that people died but it does not surprise me. It's an -cum- video - but I would not say that it warrants another thread.

Prehaps common sense should prevail and those posting something that might upset should remark that it's of that nature?

If this appeared on the news, it wouldn't even deserve a "viewer discretion" warning. It doesn't even warrant a Youtube "viewer discretion" warning. The quality of the picture is poor and there consequences of the accident are not distinguishable on the video.

If people were killed or injured in this accident, it is unfortunate and sad. But that does not make this video distasteful IMHO. But in future, I will include a warning when linking to anything that would even remotely offend.

Re: YouTube Of The Day

Not a youtube but a novel way of dealing with speeding motorists from Denmark.

This might even slow Lob and Mark down

Re: YouTube Of The Day

Another not a youtube. The dangers faced by Southerners allowed to drive in Manchester. Pay attention to the windscreen in the white van.

Keywords: Broken radiator, whiplash, spine enters back of skull.

Well some people like the Swiss TV ad, but the Virgin Atlantic ad is very amusing.
