[Graphic too large - Please use a spoiler tag to hide the size - MODERATOR]

The Microsoft PowerPoint slide which drove US military General Stanley McChrystal to declare that "When we understand that slide, we'll have won the war" at a briefing in Kabul last summer has led to big questions about the world's reliance on the presentation software.

I did it. I cracked the Dolphin Code. The universe now makes perfect sense.

Starting in the lower left quadrant and moving diagonally to the upper right quadrant, I deciphered the following:

Save the jpg and then use something like irfanview to enlarge it - the writing is legible although it is very dense and convolutedly interconnected.

Bah... it skips the first anime wave... a tiny mention of Astro Boy... but no 8th Man... Gigantor... Marine Boy... Speed Racer... and then it misses Thundercats and Bubblegum Crisis in the later explosion, and misspells "Yamato"... it's useless!

Seriously, fix that up, and it's good.

Okay, really seriously, I'm curious how long it took to put this together. Very impressive!

Utterly brilliant! Thank for posting it!

@kindlekitten - if you're using Firefox, it reduces images to fit the available screen space initially, but if you move the cursor over the image, it should change to a magnifying glass with a + inside - if you click on the image, it'll expand to full size and you can scroll around and read it in relative ease and comfort.
