    I had to sprint to get this done as db already had posted 23 by the time I found 24. Here are the steps I remember using:

    1 - open another window
    2 - google for 24
    3 - switch to images
    4 - hit page forward till i find one i like
    5 - click on the one i like
    6 - click "show original image"
    7 - copy url from url bar with original image the only thing on my screen
    8 - rush back over to bh
    9 - hit reply to db's 23 post
    10 - I hit "insert image"
    11 - paste url
    12 - hit post reply quickly before db has time to find a 24 :D

    And it worked the first time. It might just be that some sites refuse off-site image links. Many sites will return an error page if you link to an image from another site. There's no way to detect this until you see the red x. I would go back to google and select a similar image from a site with friendlier admin policies then edit your post and keep trying until the red x is gone.

    r0k, for #6 on your list, I right-click on the image and choose Open Image (a new Tab opens) so that nothing shows in the browser window except the image itself, and the link address is usually cleaner. :)
