There are some words there to see, I copied and pasted them just in case you were having problems.

 [tinfoil] Thats what they want you to believe  [tinfoil]
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

I knew it. All you conspiracy-theorist paranoids are working together. You're plotting something against me! Who put you up to this? Who's controlling you behind the scenes?!  [tinfoil] [tinfoil] [tinfoil]

TEST
OK.  This is an image I have saved from points unknown.  I just clicked on the "attachments & other options" link below the reply box.  I tried to preview it but it didn't show up.  I took a chance and posted it anyway and it showed up.  Then I clicked on "modify" to add everything after "TEST".

Now what?

Well it seems like a non-thread is becoming a thread.

What happened was using one note screen clipping it would not paste into this forum, but works other places. When I highlighted the text I wanted to paste and then did the basic right click, copy, paste it worked although the hyperlinks did not come over.

I just blamed on the alignment of the planets along with the proximity of the NEOWISE comet and called it good because I was able to get it posted using another method.

Well, it's nice to see an actual resolution of the problem instead of just never mind, it's fixed.

I had that problem once: weak mouse battery; hence my question. I also had a Eureka vacuum cleaner which would throw bits at an Apple IIe.

And hey, I kinda thought a "Skip This" or a "Never Mind"  was supposed to trigger at least three pages of responses here at APS.

No?

One of its faults, one of its charms.
