815 - Want something fun to do?
Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Go into any set of images on facebook, a longer one with more than 20 is best. Click through the pictures a bit with the mouse. Then use the right arrow key to advance images - just hold it down. Note that each time around the full set, the rate will increase. I do not know why this happens, perhaps the computer loads them into ram? But it will get much faster, increasing each time for perhaps 5 or 10 times. By the end, they will be moving at what seems like a dozen per second. How is this even possible?

One time I did it for a half hour and started to bleed out of my eyes and left nipple.

    Most Facebook pictures are so Gawd-awful bad that even loading ONE up is an exercise in visceral, optical pain.

    Even basically good photos - well composed, sharply focused, properly lit - seem to get dumbed down when they're uploaded to FB. What an ick platform for anyone who gives a hoot about pictures.

    Oops, I've ranted. Sorry!
