Amazon's Sprites

The second interesting sprite use I've discovered in as many days, I stumbled across Amazon's main navigation sprite image last night. I believe the word you're looking for is insane.

 

Though to be fair, just about everything Amazon does from a front end code perspective is also insane. The things they do to optimize would make your skin crawl.
