Coming soon!

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
- J. R. R. Tolkien

THAT's funny,I don't care who you are!

It is...enough that it doesn't need that stupid animation.

enough to trigger a seizure.

@DCPatriot

IMNSHO,whoever created that thing did it PRECISELY to cause some people to have seizures. They should be tracked down and have the snot beaten out of them. That sort of thing is NOT humorous. It is nothing less than evil and should be considered a crime.

@BassWrangler

That tweet has a "flicker."  I can see why, the height of the source tweet image was on the edge of needing the scroll bar.  As soon as it draws the bar, it sees the image as small enough to not need the bar and switches back.  It then oscillates between having a scroll bar and not having one.  The only time I've seen that.

I'm running Firefox on a Win10 machine.

Same same.

@Cyber Liberty @DCPatriot
OK, that's nothing to do with the tweet itself. It's some issue with the fixed size scrollable DIV I surround the tweet with so that the page doesn't move around as the browser loads tweets. I don't see it for this tweet,but I have for others.

@Free Vulcan - do you know how to fix the HTML to avoid that? I'm using a DIV tag with height and overflow attributes.

The flickering is irritating and it should be removed....instead of debating how or why it can be replaced with just the image.

But it doesn't show up for everyone, and you can't predict which tweets will have the issue. You're not even aware of all the tweets that do this for some users, which is why I wanted to solve the issue rather than band-aid one tiny instance of the problem.

I see what you're driving at.  A band-aid would be a leaky one, because no matter how you tweak the DIV code there will be tweets that do that.   :shrug:

You're right..no one has ever brought this to my attention..I thought it was a one time problem..

When I added the DIV section, I tweaked the size to minimize it on my browser, but obviously I didn't eliminate the issue altogether.

I think it's rare enough to back-burner the thing.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

No government in the 12,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
