Fact:

On Dec. 17, 1997, an episode of "Pokemon" was aired on Japanese television that induced seizures in hundreds of people throughout the country of Japan. The ages of those affected ranged from 3 to 58 years old. Ironically, the TV news reports played the perpetrating scene excerpt of flashing red lights, causing even more people to be afflicted with epileptic-type symptoms, in case they had missed the first one.

Merely watching any random episode of Pokemon will cause seizures.  (from a mom of two Pokemon crazy boys)

I followed this story briefly in response to this post and learned about an uncommon disorder known as photosensitivity, which can cause epileptic reactions such as this.  Basically an overload of the brain from too much visual input, particularly flashing red lights...

Iirc, the episode that triggered seizures was one that has not been shown in the US, the one with "Porygon".

I do find it interesting that the drive for 200k before 2008 has stalled.

But in the end I think it's best for OC.net if the posts leading up to the great milestone be substantive, and not a frenzy of one-word (or two-word) posts or some sort of photo-crazy spree.
