Subliminal Messages

I am looking for a good portable app that will give the user the ability to display subliminal messages that they choose whether text or pictures (In any particular order, or at random, also if audio could be incorporated that would be nice.) It would need to be able to display groups that have been already preconfigured messages (ex. weight loss, stop smoking, etc.) & have the option to give the user the ability to create custom lists or upload new lists as they become available by the software distributor, or other users who have developed their own lists. The user should be able to choose the size, color, & font of the text, as well as the background color of the box the text is displayed in. You should also be able to set the duration that the message is displayed & the time between each instance that it is displayed. If you know of an reliable free app that does exist, or one that is being developed, please let me know, because I am really interested. I would really like one that is in the paf format if at all possible to keep my apps all in one place.

What?

AutoHotKey could make a message box pop up
something like

Loop
(
(SplashImage, splash.jpg
SplashImage, splash.jpg, B
sleep, 2500
SplashImage,Off
)
sleep, 500000
)

Bewarned, I don't guarentee that it'll work, that just something like it. I know the splash image string works, just not sure about that last part.
I think this is the link

At least, thats the way it worked on mythbusters

Illegal???

Basically I want software that displays a picture or message. I don't know what's illegal about that. I'm not trying to make a commercial or do anything involving the FCC. I am just talking about software for personal use that will work to display images while I am for instance typing up a OpenOffice document. I'm not trying to use it on unsuspecting victims. I am the intended user. If you look online there are a million apps that do such a thing. I am just looking for an open source version that has been developed to work with the PortableApps menu. I'm not interested in anything illegal, I just want a version of popular software that works with the application I like to use.

One menu, all apps, any computer, the world would truly be a better place.

hm..

You have been a member here for less than 24 hours
and your first post and request is :
A: ILLEGAL
and, more importantly :
B: ethically unacceptable.

Do you really expect us to believe that you want to mind-f*ck yourself ?
Bill Hicks had some pretty strong opinions on "Satan's little helpers" in marketing:

and those who have a life " Smile

What?

First off, this is my second post. I have been watching the forums for a couple of months & these questions are what got me to join in the first place. I am not trying to so anything illegal, immoral, or unethical as you all have graciously put it. I am trying to utilize a self-help tool which gives me the choice of what messages I want shown as I do other work on my computer rather than using someone else's messages that they have created. I don't know what your are talking about mind-f*cking myself. I know people who use subliminal messages for their own personal benefit to change their life for the better. It is an app that is widely available for self-help purposes, I was just checking to see if someone may know of a portable version. If this ain't your cup of tea, I'm not asking for your opinion on what I'm looking for, I asking those who may be aware of any such program to let me know where I can find it. For those of you who want to pass judgment based off of your ignorance of what you're talking about, I don't care what you think. I am asking for some assistance, not criticism.

and

can you provide at least names of those Apps that do whatever-you-are-requesting?

If you have been reading the forum for a while, then you already know that to make a request you have to provide links so maybe somebody can portabilize your requested app... If no links, well, names to google them... Blum

Not sure

I'm not sure of any app in particular, I will do some research & let you know if I can find one in particular.

Excuse me?

Calm down. That's probably the harshest jump on a newcomer I have ever seen here. You have no right to make judgments about him and what he's doing.

Chill.

Agreed

You could set such an app up to help you with studying for a test among other things.

Got the wrong idea...

As i understand it, he just wants to display random messages ("Have a good day" "You are great") and picures (a baby, a little dog, flowers, etc)

whatznext28...

its not the immages, its the fact that it is a subliminal message, a message that the viewer "reads" without knowing and is intended to increase sales or whatever. the point is that subliminal messages are illegal,if its just a pic then your fine.

Just to clarify then?

Are subliminal messages, in the context of "self help", which is what it appears is the intended use in this case, also illegal. Or is it just illegal when it "is intended to increase sales or whatever." Or even is it only illegal in the context of a broadcast medium, which I believe is what the FCC has jurisdiction over.

Just curious mind you.

We're talking software like

We're talking software like MindZoom or Persuasions Unlimited. AFAIK, this is illegal only if you foist it on someone else, but not if you do it to yourself.

A friend of mine managed to cut down on his smoking using a similar program, so not matter what Mythbusters says, this seems to be something that does work. maybe not on everyone and all of the time, but in the worst case, it has no effect. Also, if it had no effect, why should anyone make it illegal, or call for it to be made illegal?

anything...

intended to controll or attempt to suggest the subconches (Srry bout the spelling) is illegal, it is considered in-volontary mind controll and unfortunately for some, this is illegal, just like if you go to a hypnotist, you must sign a contract saying that it was a vonantary submission for legal reasons, mostly so they cant take it to court and stuff.

the only way that it would be legal is if the subliminal messae was part of a contracted plan and the viewer was fully awar that they where watching something with subliminal messages installed in it. they must also sign a legal contract to state that they were fully aware at the time of viewing.

And roach...

that is the only acception in my previous post if it is intended and used only on yourself, otherwise all of the statements in my last post remain true.
