Okay, I saw a thread about this supposed "mind crashing" image earlier, and I started thinking (because my mind has yet to crash), wouldn't be a pretty bad ass band name?

And since I can still reason, think, and preform all basic body functions, I have the link to the picture that will cause your ultimate demise (read the info below it).

No it is not porn, unless you get a boner from psychedelic colors and shapes

I sure as hell do.

Someone come check on me in three days when, according to this, I die.
Well shit man.

I haven't seen any change from it really. I only viewed the picture for a few seconds out of fear. I'm afraid now.

The only thing I don't get is how they put that image onto walls and stuff using only a stencil and spray paint. The image seems a little complex and multicoloured to be applied with the speed and efficiency that it is in the story.

EDIT: By the way, "Langford's Basilisk" is a fucking awful band name.

The colors too much for you?

Cant handle those shades of red and blue?

Lol
Well shit man.

It can never crash my mind because I'm so numb right now that it never was even processed in my mind to begin with ... Or I'm just dumb ....

In either case the pic failed with me

Supposedly its what happens LATER that "crashes" your mind.
When you attempt to recall the image after something triggers the memory.
According to what I've heard, it's going to kill you 3 days from now.

I think its total bull, but hey, who knows?

"A number of Langford's stories are set in a future containing images, colloquially called "basilisks", which crash the human mind by triggering thoughts that the mind is physically or logically incapable of thinking. The first of these stories was "BLIT" (Interzone, 1988); others include "What Happened at Cambridge IV" (Digital Dreams, 1990); "comp.basilisk FAQ" (Nature, 1999), and the Hugo-winning "Different Kinds of Darkness" (F&SF, 2000)."

isn't the whole point of the image that it's a fractal image?

spraypainting it onto walls would therefore have no effect.

the whole thing's crap anyway, lol.

I know, that's what I was getting at.

In Langford's short story, he described the actions of these urban terrorists who spray the image onto walls, bus stops etc. to carry out a genocide.

However, it IS set in the future in a parallel universe, where maybe you can make fractal images with spraypaint??? lol

At any rate, it's a picture; to think that a picture is going to destroy you in three days is foolish unless your body is soaked in gasoline, said picture is printed out, set on fire, and thrown at you.
