    I can't be asked watching a 36min video, I think it'll just break my system (just been through a 45min frozen status).

    Whats it about? Short form?

    Ooh. I can understand falling for this kind of thing if it comes from someone you trust, but if it's random I don't know why anyone would ever click a weird link.

    Happens all the time on Facebook and Twitter, those people spreading those type of links really don't care.

    Someone on my contact list tried to send me it yesterday. The link was disguised but I could still tell something was up. My browser doesn't have automatic downloading so i stopped it, but i know sometimes the default is automatic download, so someone could have easily gotten it that way.

    @FaTaLiTyFaTaLiTy I can't even watch normal under 5min videos on YouTube without the system having some sort of spaz during it. I had to download the Jak and Daxter movie and that was an hour and a half long.
