For some reason, that resolves to the front page of cnn and a story about china wanting to win gold medals in the olympics. :D

The original link works perfectly fine for me. Goat, maybe you need to stick a nail up your nose before clicking on the link. :)

For me, it linked to a story on sea erosion lowering UK house prices, and Jon's link didn't work at all. (Maybe there's a nail lurking in my PC).

Still, I had enough un-nailed brain power to do a "spike in brain" search once I was on CNN Videos's site.

P.S. Great to be back here and to be able to post again.

I tried that, and it still didn't work, now I have a nail stuck up my nose. Expect to hear from my legal department. :)

Second one worked fine, and omg! Jebers.

Is this a new itew where you use a nailgun instead of that slow tapping folks have been doing for ages?

ah, the new bullet catch - and you get a copy of that x-ray for build up the cringe quotient.

BTW there's a really scary story about a rail spike that went through a guy's skull and affected his personality oft mentioned in basic psychology courses.

Anyway, glad the kid survived.
