    It was humanely euthanized before it continued to die a slow and lingering death or blew up. It was a toss up which would come first.

    I have seen that problem a few times. I'm not sure what happens, but I find that clicking go back one page and starting over the problem is solved.

    If you download Google Chrome or Fire Fox I believe it will load much quicker.
