Giveaway of the Day

Blog Name: Giveaway of the Day
Comment Left: Smacky is thankful for this wonderful screensaver, but wonders. He wonders if anyone else finds the town depicted in the screensaver creepy as hell?

Think about it: the town - lets call it Screensaverville - is well lit - in fact, while Smacky watched (from 7:45 to 8:20 pm), every single light in every single window was on. All of them. Even porch lights and tool sheds and stuff.

Despite this, there are very few signs of actual human life. First off, no people. Lights are on, but no one is at home. Or are they all at home? Huddled inside their houses, every single light in the place blazing, guarding against God knows what.

There are no footprints in the snow. Judging by the rate of Normal snowfall (the default selection), it would take about 30-45 minutes to completely eradicate all traces of footsteps. Sure, they would fill in quickly, but still leave an indentation. Erasing that totally would take some time.

But there are car tracks on the road. By the looks of them, they are relatively fresh, and appear to have been made within the last 10-15 minutes. But we never see a car.

But, as Smacky watched, flying about town, he noticed that the tire tracks never fill in. So, that means that someone is driving around and freshening the tracks. But they're always 10-15 minutes ahead of Smacky, no matter how many times he takes a shortcut by flying over the river.

So, to summarize the situation in Screensaverville:

1. Every single person in town has either (a) left the town, or (b) shut themselves up inside their houses and turned on every single light in the house.

2. Nobody goes outside; in fact, no one has gone outside for some time.

3. At least one vehicle stealthily patrols the town.

Sounds like something is definitely going on in Screensaverville. What aren't we being told?

Smak-eye, you oned-eyed girlieboy. The town is like the one in Tremmors--that Dean-Koontz movie. You know the one--you're just tooo strung out on getting-unwell to remember seeing it with me 3foxtrot years ago. DUH.
