Has anyone ever heard of the Russian Virus 666? It is rummored to beable to put the viewer in a trance which keeps his confused staring at his screen until he dies. It is done with subliminal messages. Can anyone bring in any truth on this? I have a feeling it is a hoax, but it seems like it could be possible. Maybe not to the extream of death.

Post your knowledge.

Just google it, there is a bunch of stuff on it. Even military stuff. I personally don't know if this incidence is true, but it seems like something that would be possible.

haha, yes, i agree with that too... i know that this "virus" is not real, but, do you think that there is a possiblity that subliminal messages could be broad cast over the internet? or through a virus? I mean they used to be in movies, so using flash or some kind of program on the computer could probably replicate a message... Not that it is probable, but is it possible?

Well, I mean I don't believe that it actually exists...but then again I do know the power of subliminal messages, but not to death. Proof: new sprite commercial...j/k

well, technically, u can insert frames with some extra contents inbetween regular frames of any animation in flash
- just like they did with "ads" in the movies - before it was banned.
Tempting?

Yes, It actually comes from a report entitled, "Parameters, A US Army War College Qurterly, Spring 1998"

It is said that the virus is designed to appear every twenty-fifth frame and cause a person to come into a trance-like state and evern severely inpair their judgement and can even induce a heart attack.

This report is also listed in a book by Timothy L. Thomas in his Book, "The Mind has no Firewall".

I'm way late to this party, but I didn't see anyone come out and say it:  Subliminal messages are a hoax.

The early 1950's "pioneers" in the field of subliminal advertising, namely James Vicary, later admitted that all their statistics were fake and the experiments never took place.  Every other experiment in the field since then has produced as many negatives as positives.

In short:  Unless you're epileptic, you have nothing to worry about.

I remember when I learned about epilepsy:  when a friend of mine was playing a game on another friend's Amiga 500.  Suddenly, he freaked out and fell on the floor.  Good times.
