What is, how many times I have scared the crap out of myself in the last 10 minutes?

I don't know why, but this just reminded me of a Dalmatian I once owned that was so highly strung she'd melt down every time she passed gas.

No offense meant, Rev. You just brought up a long buried happy memory.

Hold down the Shift Key and klik on the Reload Icon (to the left of the URL bar, the curling circled arrow).
Is there a trick that will let me hear the bulbs breaking?

I got my sounds on and everything, but the bulbs are all quiet.
All the Protestants are getting breaking sounds. :? Perhaps breaking lights and hearing the sound is a naturally Protestant activity.

If there's a Catholic alone breaking Christmas lights does anyone hear it?

I had forgotten how much I enjoy breaking the bulbs...my wife will be less pleased...But my thanks to Pepik and anyone else that was involved in the snow and bulbs.
Yes, thanks, Y'all. I have no idea how long it takes to create this nice Christmas mood, so it's much appreciated.

And Pepik, the shift key and reload icon did the trick.

If I stretch my window across both screens, I get 59 bulbs to break.

Answers I gave my wife last night while she was watching The Voice;

...Yes I do have to break every single bulb.

...I get a new set of bulbs to break on every new page or if I refresh the page I am on.

...Yes its just for the holidays.

...No I can't turn down the volume, that is part of the fun, hearing the breaking glass, besides I think the
volume button is broken on my computer.

...Yes I can take my laptop computer downstairs...but then we wouldn't be spending time together.

...Yes I will take it outside and smoke and "Play on the computer"

She just isn't in the Christmas spirit...

I have developed a compulsion to try and take out every light in one smooth, clean sweep, as fast as possible, with my mouse.

It's harder than you might think.

Some very generous brother, last year, shared a way in which a person could deactivate the lights, yet the snow and the wise men are left behind. I appreciated this information.

The setting has remained until this year. I'm still thankful, though I forget what I did.

I have three monitors. When I stretch the window across all three I get 89 bulbs to break! :dancingpie:

Me, too. Try it with your non-dominant hand. You'll think you are having a stroke or something.

You guys are starting to worry me. Next you'll be telling me you sit on one hand till it goes numb, and then try to sweep the lights calling it the 'Stranger Danger Light Dash'.

At that point, y'all need to be performing the Dance of Shame in the most immediate room corner, ASAP.
