Critical issue with 'Epic Beard Man' article

I am unable to view the ‘Epic Bearn Man’ article at all. The exact problem is that when I try, Internet Explorer 8 crashes.
Can you look over the page to see what’s causing it?

And yes, I signed up just to make this post.

I can see the issue… you are using IE8.
I suggest you use firefox, this will solve your problem.

It is because of the damn overload of comments in the article.

KYM is working on figuring out a fix for this.

I believe it is because there is no such article as “Epic BEARN Man”

Have you tried loading it in a different browser? Chromium seems to load it without issue for me, though you might try Google Chrome. If it works in Chrome, it’s probably due to the heavy usage of JS/Flash on that page. If Flash crashes in IE, the whole browser crashes, whereas Chrome won’t crash if Flash does. Same for unresponsive scripts.

At me the same. The waiting is like 5-10 mins. And when tabs are open, I can’t go to these either. It just freezes for 5-10 mins.

Yeah, it does that to me on any thread that has too many embeds…

^true. I have it on other memes too, as you said with lots of packed up embedded vids (not so much at more spaced embeds.)

Yay flash. I’ll make sure that Greg sees this.
