Waiter, one round of confusion for all, please.

Are you saying you see no ad above? That it's an empty box?

Or that you don't get it - either what the ad is for, or why I find it humorous?

Ah. Well, I don't know why that is, but it's a real banner ad for "Online degrees in Intelligence", from the American Military University.

Cue the usual jokes about military intelligence, raised to the power of internet intelligence.

ETA: Darn it, forgot the last step in my equation:

Cue the usual jokes about military intelligence, raised to the power of internet intelligence, times the square root of seeing it on Freethought Blogs.

Again, a video rather than an image....but it made me laugh a lot - sometimes in shocked disbelief.....

Strange that you can't see the original one. Maybe your ISP server filters the site that hosted the original picture. I've had this happen to me before.

I'm really confused Ozymandias, can you not see any of the pics I am posting?

I suspect hostthenpost is getting firewalled by some people's browsers.

I can see a thumbnail of them, which is rather hard to make out. If I click on them, I am sent to the hosting page rather than the picture. However, if I right-click, do copy image location and paste that into the navigation bar of a new tab, I can see them fine. It is just a bit of a hassle.

I wondered if that was it.

I will try and host the pictures with another company that is more popular perhaps this will help.



Tell me if you can see this image?

That image is just fine. The only one that I can't see is still the original one posted by Bree.

I can see hostthenpost just fine. And my ISP doesn't block any sites.

Oh good I'm glad this is working for you, I will use this host to post pics instead of the other one. Thanks for letting me know of this problem Ozymandias.
