    You blocked the video on my blog, so I guess I’ll forget about AFP videos from now on.

    That’s OK. There’s no shortage of videos, and if you don’t want the traffic, someone else will.

    AFP, why block your videos from being embedded on other websites?

    It’s free advertising!

    The stupidity of big media knows no bounds.

    AFP, you suck for disabling embedding. This is ideal social media fodder – and you just FAILED.

    What a great idea. Is there information for how to donate to his cause?

    Best. Bookmobile. Ever.

    Why did they disable embedding. This is a great vid. True ART in action. Someone dropped it onto my site but now it doesn’t play. AFP FAIL.

  18. maekern says:

    Lovely video. Interesting topic. Dick move disabling embedding, though.

  19. Rezmason says:

    How well does it handle? I imagine all those books cost a fortune in gas money to schlep around. On the other hand, he did manage to tour the country with it.

    I like the working 57mm cannon for blasting away illiterates and book burners.
