    Ad banners linked to epilepsy?

    Well, not really, but isn't that damned blinking "winner" banner irritating? It's bad enough that it changes colors 30 times/second, but they're even ugly colors! Watch as it turns from some vaguely pinkish color to brown to a brilliant pea-green! Amazing!

    Not epilepsy, seasickness. Some of those colors by themselves could cause damage.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I say epilepsy works. I hate that one ad. Good thing I always get the "Warning! Finding the right consulting firm.." one.
