That`s more than a bit interesting! It picked up my clipboard no problem. Is all this genuine?

It's not a trick. It's proving how a simple script can look at your clipboard over the internet.

"type C:\ into IE address bar and see what happens."

Access to the resource 'C:\' has been disallowed.

It is the text that is the present in you clipboard

is present in you clipboard

So if you deal some sensitive information

lines of text taken from link,don't make much sense ,
maybe written by a young hand methinks!!
