Do some Google searches on compression bombs,
in this mailing list and others.

Some of the images are larger than the image size
that the HTML specifies for them.

Since many of the images are remote it is not possible to generate a
preview without some tinkering.  It would be nice if it was organized
so 120 images from 40+ different sites or so were not all on one page.
But it is a bulletin board of sorts that has no central author.
Hmmmm....  that is what forward and back buttons on pages are for.
