So if you can see a line traveling down the screen then the speed in which your eyes and brain are processing the signal is fast enough that you can pick up where the line is at any given moment.
    Thank you, baby.

    Oh, yes. I get that. I was using an old 13" 60Hz CRT monitor at the time. Usually I couldn't see the scanning at all, but after eating that coffee, I could see it so clearly it was distracting me a bit. It didn't seem like the screen was drawing itself so much as it seemed like a bright line was repeatedly going across it. At first I thought something was wrong with the monitor, but then I saw it on the television as well, and realized it must be something about my perception that was different rather that the machines I was looking at.
