Why Blogging is Evil

I'm going to try to embed a hilarious video of Patton Oswalt arguing why blogging is the root of all evil. I've never embedded a video before. This is so exciting, getting to embed. It's - dare I say - hot.

My favorite part is with the commentors at the end. What do you think?

(10 minutes passes...)

Damn it, it didn't work. I have to use a hyperlink.

Click here to see it.

I think your (10 minutes passes...) is funnier than video!

I ought to be on the show demonstrating why embedding videos is the root of all evil.

The comments on the Declaration of Independence crack me up, especially the second person who tries to be First!, "which is demonstrably not true!"

LOL! I laughed so hard while watching this. It's nice to know that I could have helped "spell doom" for the country as a commenter if I had existed back then. I am bookmarking that video. Quite clever... and dare I say, true in many respects?

If you want to embed it you have to click on "HTML" when you are looking at the draft, then insert it somewhere in the blank space. But you have to be sure you have the "embed" link rather than the "link" link. ;)

Going to watch it now!

It didn't like one part of the HTML code, but I can't figure out why. It looked OK in preview at first, but it wouldn't let me publish it.

Sometime I may spend another 10 minutes on it, but not today :-(

sorry that was me...signed in under my basic email address. :)

well the video didn't play for maybe its the site?

I just tried the link and it worked for me. Give it a few seconds, if your Internet connection is slow, it may take some time to buffer before it starts.

A link is just as good as the embedding, I think. I'll check it out when I'm at home!
