Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "http:" - if it does, change it to "https:" and it will work.

If a video isn't embedded you should assume it may be inappropriate for some people.

How do I embed a Youtube video?
Simply post the YouTube URL.
Alternately (actually, this may no longer work):
Click the "youtube" button on the second row on the furthermost left side.
You will now have the words: [youtube][/youtube] in your editor.
Now, copy and paste the youtube video id (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&x=y) in between the middle brackets in order for it to look like this:
    [youtube]oHg5SJYRHA0[/youtube]
and leave out this part of the link: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="

Or you can paste the YouTube link, highlight it, and then click on the "YouTube" button. This will encase the link in the youtube tags,
Now just click "post" and you're done!


How can I search if a video has been posted here before?
This is not foolproof, but it's a good start.
Search for the youtube ID (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)

I don't want to be a spoiler, but I think his reason for #6 is hilarious (though sadly partially true, and in cities only).

Why doesn't he discuss Hebrew? Just checked his video rating 'all' languages, doesn't talk about it.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I thought there was a thread about Carlos Ghosn, but I can't find it, so here's another interesting video (interesting about his own case, and towards the end his insights about the EV revolution and about Elon Musk):

I wonder how much Apple TV paid him for rights to "Wanted: The Escape of Carlos Ghosn TV Series 2023"

If it's only about the Escape, I don't think it's that interesting. The details are more or less known at this point, and the person who helped orchestrate it is already done serving jail time.

I am more intrigued by his amazing business acumen. As well as the details of the Nissan insiders that orchestrated his arredt/ouster, along with the alleged authorities that collaborated.

Ja, there are Jews in Africa...

I'm not sure what you mean... I just thought it was a nice video, and I'm not aware of a thread for
videos that aren't particularly funny/strange/interesting. (I've got mishpacha in South Africa myself.)

Some people might think I have an obsession with this man, and I might find it difficult to refute.

YouTube suggested some Arabic (Lebanese) interviews, and I find them fascinating as they go beyond the story of Nissan and the escape.

The format of this one is awful IMHO, she keeps on jumping around, and mentions his name constantly in awe. But there are some different insights here, including the situation in Lebanon, business attitude, etc. His language is interspersed with French and English (seemingly quite common among more educated Lebanese).

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

This is so profound. I can't believe that I only heard this now, and that it isn't more widely known!
