These are my favourite kinds of Onion articles: B-movie plots, related in a totally dry, serious news manner.

"NEW YORK—Standing mystified in a crowded intersection, Verus Attius Glabrio, a Roman centurion who emerged from a manhole in the middle of New York’s Time Square, is in for a wacky adventure, sources confirmed Wednesday.

Reports stated that Glabrio, a highly decorated military officer from 55 A.D., crawled out of the sewer opening at approximately 8:35 p.m. clad in full Roman Imperial battle armor, immediately causing motorists to swerve, slam on their brakes, scream vulgar remarks, and make obscene hand gestures in his direction..."

Been wondering about this for a while now, how do I post images on the forum? I try putting them as attachments, but the file size is always too large, even if the image resolution already seem pretty low. Can we only post images with urls and links?

You use the tags (img)image.jpg(/img) ... but replace the ( with brackets.

Also, this one took me FOREVER to learn, but ... there's a Quote button by each post, and it's cool for two reasons. One, of course, is that if you click it, it automatically does the cool thing above where it quotes the person's post into yours. And two ... it also includes any special tags they used.

So next time you are curious about how somebody posted a Youtube clip, or image, or tagged someone, or any of the other randomness you see on this page, you can quote the post and see the text and tags in your own posting window. Reverse engineering!

Yes, I realize it's not, actually. But it made me feel clever when I figured that out. :P

EDIT: Oh, missed the other part of your question. Yes, you can only post images by providing links.

@The Gem Cutter and @tebakutis Thank you both so much for the help! I am extremely poor when it came to using electronic devices, so the help is really appreciated. :)

That did not work, because your link is not valid. I don't know what you did, did you just add .JPG at the end of the address of the page? It doesn't work like that.
Right click on the image and select "copy image location" or whatever sounds similar to that. When you paste what you just copied inside a new window, you'll see that you obtained the URL for the image :

http://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/ao2r1qA_700b.jpg

That is what you want to put in brackets.

As for doing that, if your reply page looks like mine always does, you'll notice the buttons on top of the smileys?
There is a youtube one, followed by "Sp", and then the third is a square frame, looks like a little painting. That makes the img brackets appear instantly. If you click it first, this appears (I added a space so that it shows):

[img][ /img]

And you only have to paste your image URL in between. But you can also highlight your already existing URL, then click the button, and the brackets will appear around the highlight.

P.S : also you don't need to use any URL brackets like [url], when adding a link. If the link is valid it is automatically made into a clickable one.

So everyoe is going crazy about the butcher who sprinkles "salt" over his cutlets like a magician fairy powder, but have you seen the cop who takes the piss and does the same with his gun?

And likewise very sad I couldn't find the whole video for this one, with audio and all, but pleaaaaase click on the link and look at that!!
A woman steps out in an Alaskan snow storm to reach her car (in which she apparently forgot her phone?), and the forces of the wind are just nuts, it looks like a perfect movie scene. The way the snow billows and tears at her hair!!
