Wow. I can't believe I watched it anyway. "Colon Worm Wrangling" at its finest.
You haven't actually tried this, I assume. In Firefox, "Select All" does nothing on that page, and does not cause "View Selection Source" to appear.
Anyway, I use Safari.
I don't know about his wacky suggestion, but Firefox + Firebug let me view the DOM, which was handy. I think Safari has something like that built in.
It doesn't visually, but if you right click outside the page after hitting ctrl a it gives the option for view selection source.
It's basically an embed with this swf.
Go ahead and make a page that embeds that .swf and tell me how well that works for you. Oh, how about that, it doesn't. You need the JS-generated args to the embed tag too.
I did try it.. that's where I got the name of the swf, the added code was actually
<embed src="NEJM_Jang_e16v1.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" play="true" loop="true" scale="showall" wmode="window" devicefont="false" bgcolor="#ffffff" name="NEJM_Jang_e16v1" menu="true" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain" allowfullscreen="false" salign="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" align="middle" height="360" width="400">
It's after the script tag
Ah, right you are, the embed tag is shown.
But it still doesn't work when I paste it into another page, even when I correct the src= url to be fully qualified, or when I add a <base href>. I again get the player but no video.
It's probably that allowscriptaccess="sameDomain" thing or some kind of check on referrer since clicking on the swf link directly works (for me anyway).
Anyway that's why I just fished it out of my cache and stuck it up on youtube.
I suppose they consider this a "feature".
Sure is great living here in the future.
So that's where that went.
Still pictures of Loa Loa worms still freak me out more.
happy to oblige
Oh I love that, having removed the worm, the surgeon then uses the person eyeball as a table to show off the worm, stretching it to full length etc.
"Hang on - now I'm going to put two of them on there now and have them play out the courtroom scene between me and my wife during the divorce"
That doctor is clearly a sadist.
No video but some very disturbing photos there.
I also watched the whole thing. I was cheering for the wrangler to get the worm.
Grateful for flashblocker now.
That guy needs to eat something. The worm looks hungry. And mad. Feed the worm!
i've read that absinthe was invented specifically as a tonic to rid the body of parasites. it's primary target being worms in the digestive tract.huh.i wonder if that's true.if it is, then just show this clip to patrons right before directing them to the DNA's absinthe bar.:P
Farnsworth: Anyhoo, your net-suits will allow you to experience Fry's worm infested bowels as if you were actually wriggling through them.
Zoidberg: There's no part of that sentence I didn't like!
Looks like the bowel prep wasn't quite thorough enough.
I can think of much worse things to come down a colon.
