Well, I have to admit that I think the scheme they use to get
you load the large flash chunk is pretty clever.  Most sites
just have a large blank rectangle where the flash stuff is
supposed to be. These guys have figured out that they should
put something _under_ the flash rectangle that elicits a click
out of people who have flash disabled by default.

Um, not that I clicked, or anything...
