Lights, Pokemon, Seizures!

Did you know light can induce seizures?

Photic-induced seizures — Photosensitivity has received considerable attention as a seizure trigger. The light stimulation may come from a natural or artificial source, in particular television shows and video games.

The most famous incident occurred in relation to a Pokémon cartoon aired in 1997 in Japan in which 685 children (from an estimated 7 million viewers) sought medical attention for neurologic symptoms; most (about 80 percent) were felt to be seizures.

It's interesting because I am a Pokemon fan :D

That's all!
