Re: Joke of the Day

A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a monastery.
He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, "My car
broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?"

The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even fix his
car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound.
A sound not like anything he's ever heard before. The Sirens
that nearly seduced Odysseus into crashing his ship comes to
his mind. He doesn't sleep that night. He tosses and turns
trying to figure out what could possibly be making such a
seductive sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the
sound was, but they say, "We can't tell you. You're not a monk."

Distraught, the man is forced to leave.

Years later, after never being able to forget that sound, the
man goes back to the monastery and pleads for the answer again.

The monks reply, "We can't tell you. You're not a monk."

The man says, "If the only way I can find out what is making
that beautiful sound is is to become a monk, then please, make
me a monk."

The monks reply, "You must travel the earth and tell us how
many blades of grass there are and the exact number of grains
of sand When you find these answers, you will have become a
monk."

The man sets about his task. After years of searching he returns
and knocks on the door of the monastery. "I have traveled the
earth and have found what you have asked for: By design, the
world is in a state of perpetual change. Only God knows what
you ask. All a man can know is himself, and only then if he
is honest and reflective and willing to strip away self
deception."

The monks reply, "Congratulations. You are now a monk. We shall
now show you the way to the mystery of the sound."

The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk
says, "The sound is beyond that door."

The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the
wooden door is another door made of stone. The man is given the
key to the stone door and he opens it, only to find a door made
of ruby. And so it went that he needed keys to doors of emerald,
gold and diamond.

Finally, the monks say, "This is the last key to the last door."

The man is apprehensive to no end. His life's wish is behind the
door! He unlocks the door, turns the knob, and behind that door
he is utterly amazed to find the source of that haunting and
seductive sound... But I can't tell you what it is because
you're not a monk.

I used to race snails, one day I thought "I wonder if they would go faster without their shells?!" As it turns out they become more sluggish.

Saw that one before, you married ppl gotta try it out (pretend to be drunk and scream at your wife not to touch you). Easy peasy.
Breaking News: Lewis Hamilton has officially overtaken The Fonz in race wins. With 88 races less. Lol (Without a specially built blown diffuser, illegal front wing, preferential treatment)

Asked whether he would agree to stay with McLaren if the team were to offer him a race seat for next year, Button pointedly replied: "I don't know."


“I think I had races where if things had gone a little bit different this year I could have won. But equally it has been like this in the past and it probably will be like that in the future.”

When asked to name which races, Vettel’s suggestions included Canada and Hungary, both of which were won by team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.

I tried Firefox (51.01), Chrome (55.0.2883.87) and Internet Explorer (11.576.14393.0)...

And none displayed the YouTube video, however, IE gave me a message "Only secure content is displayed", with the option to show all content. I clicked on the show all content button and lo and behold the video appeared. So I am guessing it's a https issue, I just noticed that forumula1 is now https and I'm guessing that YouTube is not, so it's not being displayed by default, Chrome and Firefox don't give you the option to override the non-secure content.

You do see MY posting of sagi's video, right?
I think it's just a matter of proper syntax. For sagi: place everything after the = sign of your YouTube source in between [youtube][ /youtube].

Yes, that's correct, but only in IE and then only after I click "show all content".

I have also just checked in Edge browser as well, same situation, no video for anyone and no "show all content" either.

I see the issue, the embed link is HTTPS, but the link generated by the [youtube] embed code is HTTP, which is causing the conflict, so Stephen will need to go into the include that creates that embed code and change it from HTTP to HTTPS for it to work correctly.
