  1. Great scenery, but the pictures are so contrasty they actually hurt your eyes, and inspire a slight headache.

    Also, WTF is the point of constantly having such uncompressed pictures on ER 300-500k, when they’ve been sized less than 800x600px? Its a waste of bandwidth, and makes this site horrifically slow for everyone, other than the broadband connected urban dregs of humanity.
