This is weird. I cropped the above image from a screenshot of my blog. See the arrow in the image above? See the little circle that the arrow is pointing toward? It's just above the 't' in "the". At first I thought that I entered some foreign language character by mistake, but scroll up or down and the circle stays. Aha! Dirt on the screen! But no, wiping it away has no effect. Open a new tab in my browser (Firefox at the moment) and it disappears. Open my blog in another tab and there it is again! I suspect fancy mouse related nonsense from Chrome, which I have quit using again because it has recently become very sluggish.
You know what else is weird? The background in the screenshot is a different color than the background here, even though they should be identical. I mean, it's a screenshot, right? So what happens if we take a screenshot of a screenshot? Does it continue to get darker?
