Evil idea

I think it would be awesome to have a kids show that subtly leans leftward, and thus generates criticism from the Far Right. Evil idea to fit in with that: I'd love to do things on that show just to fuck with the minds of the parents. One idea I had was this: at some point in the show, not right away but after the controversy over the show gets to a fever pitch (or as close to fever pitch as the Right can manage), I'll have something happen that will amuse me; at some point in one episode of the show, a message would flash for a split second, long enough to be noticed but not long enough for anyone to read without going back and pausing the show at the precise moment of the flash. The panel would read "This panel was put here just to make your parents paranoid. (Our *real* subliminal messages go by too fast for anyone to even notice!)"

I am evil. >:-D

LOL OH MAN. Purple is a gay pride colour? Aren't all the colours together a/the gay pride colour? Alone, it's bisexual pride. I mean come on. Bisexual activism specifically isn't even as common as the general-queer outlook.

Red and blue are also gay pride colours... OMG, Phelps was right!

First off, short duration messages of that sort may be illegal.

Second, you *can't* do one shorter than 1/60th of a second, because that's the frame rate for TV images. Might be 1/30th, I'd have to look it up.

That was more 1/10th or even 1/6th sec.

I've seen it done quick enough to at least appear subliminal. And the point is, after all, to be in some way of aware that it's there.

This is a beautiful idea.

And then in a later episode, just before they start the boycotts, accidentally slow-down one of the subliminal messages: "Listen to your parents."
