It's freaked me out for months now but I've been too embarrassed to admit it: Am I the only one who thinks that, in its small size, the default icon for ChicagoNow commenters (pictured left) looks strange and reptilian, like a sea snake coming out of the lake or maybe even the Loch Ness monster? Something sinister and mysterious?
Up close, of course, you can tell it's a pothole with a rubber cone stuck in to
warn cars away - an all too common site.
There's a faded insignia on
the cone -- a cute bear. Maybe it's a Bears cone?
But far away, in
its thumbnail size and on my dark old monitor, it's hard to tell what's going on. The pavement
begins to look like water. Seriously. I'm wearing my new glasses and it looks a little clearer now, but still...
Anyone else had this issue (and brave enough to admit it)?
This has nothing to do with education, I know.
