Is it just me, or is there little asterisk' falling like snow on the page?  I saw them on my droid last night, but I'm seeing them here too.

Oh thank god.
I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.
I actually foccussed on one particular "flake" so hard in an attempt to make it go away using the power of positive thinking that I made myself sick. :)

Now the real question: Bringing back the end of the world like it's 1999, or HTML5?

If you use F.lux it is really noticeable.

Kinda annoying. Especially since there is no snow where I live

Also, it is making my phone have an anuerism.

They are all different too! Some smaller, some bigger. Some are a five point asterisk, others are a legs/arms - no head parachutist. Others flicker.

I am amused.

Did you realize they *avoid* the cursor and the snow falls opposite whatever direction the cursor is in relation to the center of your browser. Nice work!

I have suffered from ocular migraines over the last 30 years or so, and had one yesterday morning. I thought it was coming back when I saw the snowflakes!

I have a genetic disorder called congenital nystagmus.  It causes some pretty weird/cool phenomena with contrasting light or staring at a monitor.

This may be a little too amusing for me. I just spent a good ten minutes looking at them.

Work is slow today...  :angel:

Try clicking them! Some highlight more than one (but not all). Others only the one clicked.

Thanks, now I have more wasted time... Ah, I'm too easily distracted by the simple things in life.

Is there any way to disable the snow on my end or is it an all users thing?  It really is bugging the crap out of me  ::)

For years I had known about this but never saw one. Just now it was almost like a blizzard! Well, not quite. I do not have time to look at them, but now I have seen them, I believe!

And now I also see they are staying at the bottom of the screen. What do I use for a virtual shovel and virtual salt?
