When I open the menu to look at my stats, the bar that shows damage is "flashing" (well, it looks more like it keeps increasing from "0" to "max" over and over again at high speed, hence "flashing"). What does it mean?

It happened before, and I think it has something to do with the Bloody Lust and technology 2.

Items I have atm when the bar is flashing: (Playing as Eve) Dead bird, Whore of Babylon, Small Rock, Chocolate Milk, Technology 2, Jesus Juice, Stem Cells, Bloody Lust, Cat-o-nine-tails, Lil Chub, Grade 1 Cube of meat, Ouja board, Toothpicks

Are you talking about a boss's life bar? – Aubergine Jun 10 '12 at 13:54
@Aubergine I'm assuming he's talking about the stats screen in the pause menu, and specifically his damage stat. – Mr Smooth Jun 10 '12 at 14:13
@MrSmooth That definitely makes more sense. – Aubergine Jun 10 '12 at 14:15
As i said, "when i look at my stats", and "the bar that shows damage". I probably mean the screen where my stats are shown. – ChaosPointDK Jun 10 '12 at 14:24
I've had this happen before as well, though according to my stats, I've never picked up Technology 2, Stem Cells or Bloody Lust. I always assumed it meant "charging shots" (ie, from Chocolate Milk). – Keaanu Jun 20 '12 at 16:24

Chocolate Milk is the culprit. I always had this question in my head as I had never seen anything like this and yesterday when i got chocolate milk I noticed it does indeed change your damage bar to a a flashing bar. It fills from left to right and then repeats while flashing.

What this is supposed to indicate is that your damage is relative to how long you spend charging the shot. The longer you hold down the fire key the stronger the shot is.
