Brain melt down. Somebody has gone and hidden not just ONE, but at least TWO DIFFERENT snowmen on my computer.
I give you:
So it's a UTF thing. Which is a whole can of crazy. I was searching for ８, trying to figure out how it was different from 8, (8 - ８ huh?) and discovered a kind of terrifying world of symbols waiting for me. Symbols like Astrological and Meteorological and Logical symbols. Japanese Kanji. Tibetan letters. Weird things. And then I found him. The secret snowman hidden on my computer. I IM'd my findings to Saf, and discovered that it was worse than I even realized...
My IM and my browser display DIFFERENT snowmen. What?
Here's Google chrome, as displayed on http://www.fileformat.info/info/cha
And here it is as it appears on my LJ page, in my IM window, and even in the Title Bar of the browser window when the page title has a snowman in it:
Who PUT that snowman there? Who decides these things? Now a snowman, what's next? A starfleet symbol, or the rebel alliance? I know! UTF should have a shpongle mask!
So! What does the snowman look like on your computer? How many snowmen can you find hiding in your fonts? Will bullwinkle be able to escape from boris and natasha's evil plan?
Ooh! I wonder which snowman(men) will turn up the RSS feed and the version that is syndicated to my facebook!
EDIT: OMGWTFBBQZOMG!!!!! It is different on my friends page than if you go to the entry page itself. Try it and see if it is like that for you: http://djsunkid.livejournal.com/fri
OK! I found a font analyser to look for more snowmen! I have 444 fonts installed so it isn't easy to just look through them all, but http://www.fileformat.info/info/uni
