What would be your idea of a dumb animated gif? How about one that isn’t really animated?
Seriously. I went searching for “castle greyskull animated gif.” I thought I’d find some cool bit from one of the 80s era commercials where someone was playing with it. I did, but the only animated part is the instability of the television screen on which this was filmed. All this contains is a few seconds of film clip from a no-motion part of a commercial.
How dumb of an animated gif is that? I’m sure someone had a reason for making this, but it seems pretty weird to me.
Of course I had to use it and complain instead of looking for a real motion one.
Well, it’s been over two years since I first complained about Facebook taking messaging out of their mobile app and requiring use of their dedicated messenger app. It’s even been over two years since I thumbed my nose at them about this and started using the web browser on my phone when I wanted to send Facebook messages rather than install their messenger app, switching back and forth between the Facebook app and the web browser as needed. It’s even been over a year since my update from that, stating things were still the same. Amazingly, still no change.
Really, I thought they’d force me over by now, killing the ability to send messages from the web browser version on phones. I still think they will, but can’t believe it’s been so long and they haven’t. It’s still irritating to have to do things this way, but I still haven’t gotten irritated enough that I want to download their messenger app.
I may never.

Still going. From one Walter to another, involving Walters whose dialogue I often find can switch on graphics of them and still work.
