Steps to reproduce:

  1. Visit Programmers - Stack Exchange or Programmers chat in browser.
  2. Keep page open for a while.
  3. Notice blemish on monitor at edge of vision, reach with hand or cloth to clean it off.
  4. Realize that blemish is actually the theme's background image and you just wiped it for nothing/touched monitor with finger and actually made it worse. Possible infinite loop condition.

(P.S. I would've tagged this [fun] if I had the rep. =))
