Decorative - US Flag

Description: Simple, small waving flag for your Dashboard. It even flips over and continues to wave. Create several and scatter them around!

The flags hide themselves when the dashboard hides to save CPU.

Another pointless "Non-Widget."

(This is my opinion, and I'm sorry if I offend you with my harshness, but it is how I feel.)

I hate stupid image widgets as much as anyone, but this one would be kind of neat

1) If it had a ton of different flags to choose from
2) If it looked really nice

It's the best animated US flag I could find. Not at all what I wanted, but the best of what's out there. I'll have to make my own sometime to get a photo-realistic version.

I just like having a flag on my desktop. Independence Day is coming up soon.

I think there should be another section on the right titled "decorative" for widgets such as these.

Umm, there is a category called "Decorative" and this widget is in it.

If it were after 9/11 everybody would love it, but now, they equate the flash with bush, so they hate it.

Sorry man. Get a better quality and i'll knab it.

Look,
Rule of thumb. If your widget has no JavaScript, it's not worth it.
A Decorative section does not invite any Widget who's HTML file is nothing but this:
<html>
<body>
<img>
</body>
</html>
If you're going to make a Widget which is intended to go in the Decorative section, it should at the very least allow the user to choose between multiple images of the theme of choice. If you don't know how to do this, then you should not submit your Widgets until they follow the said rule of thumb.

Usually decorative widgets are just dumb, but this one is so disgusting that it actually makes me feels sick.
