    The animation sure does add so much to the story, doesn’t it? I doubt I would understand the words without it.

    The inflight one got squashed by the seat adjust mechanism…

    so, not like the animation shows. ie sitting on the tray table and catching fire “for no reason”.

    How long has the news been animated? I don’t think I like this development. People remember pictures better than just words and I don’t trust whoever is choosing the pictures. There is too much interpretation and speculation being presented as news already without someone turning it into an action movie.

    Katkinkate: This is an interesting project that seems to have started a few weeks ago. It is from Japan. I have mixed feelings about it myself, and frankly I was hoping that my posting them now and then would elicit more comments about the medium rather than the message. So thanks for your comment about the medium!
