    I'll see your sparks and raise you a bicycle disintegrating at 170 KM/H

    Yowch. You know, we ought to add a function to allow people to include Google Videos and YouTube clips in their blog entries. Both services explicitly intend for people to be able to embed their content on their own sites, but they rely on users pasting an [embed] tag into their markup, which blogs doesn't allow.

    But all you really need is the ID of the clip, so we could extend Textile to understand that (say):-

    youtube[vycg5_lCAZk]

    should be replaced with the appropriate embed string for a Youtube player, and similarly for Google Video.

  3. Did you see the technical discussion about what was happening? link

    That thing is a switch, designed to switch 2000 amps at half a million volts. And not quite working as intended :-)
