StackOverflow is now using Google's hosted JQuery files. Try clearing your cache and restarting your browser. Also, if you're at work, it's possible (but unlikely) that your employer is blocking Google.

My cache was still looking for the files in the old domain, and also my employer is blocking the new domain (its not but another one) – Nuno Furtado Jul 29 '09 at 16:30

Probably related to Kyles's answer, I recently made a setup change to allow JavaScripts from in addition to the ones StackOverflow was requesting previously:, and You need to allow JavaScripts from and for full user functionality and [following the advice in Jeff's comment] from and for SO's statistics tracking.

you don't have to allow quantserve or google-analytics -- those are just for statistics tracking. – Jeff Atwood Jul 30 '09 at 3:06
