    Yesterday I watched one of these animated pictures which cause seizures (mostly on people with epilepsy), for no more than 3 seconds, and I crashed. Have you experienced this? If you haven't, please don't try it. I was looking at a random profile on facebook and one of the posts was this picture. It had text over it "You can thank me for the seizure later" but I didn't pay attention and clicked on it. It took exactly 3 seconds of watching and I crashed. It was meant to be a joke obviously, but it's a joke for healthy people, which only get a short time headache from these pics. Lesson learned.

    Better wait to see the answers of others who may already have this experience. Not all pics of this type are as nasty as that particular one I looked at. That one was ... evil.

    @svetoslav80 Thanks for the warning. I'll know now to look away from those as soon as I see the caption.

    They are just fast moving and flashing animations with certain visual patterns that are meant to confuse your brain. Better don't google for them.

    I don't want to hurt anyone, but if you're a suicider ... I sent you the link on a private message.
