Bug report: I went to brush this ant off of my monitor and discovered it was *inside* the screen. It is now permanently in my field of view unless I take my monitor apart.

Ant Update 2: Some time overnight, the ant moved again and is facing up toward 12 o'clock. It must still be alive.

Final ant update (I hope): the ant is gone! It must have found a way out of the monitor over the weekend.

@kyle wait, how old is your screen? is that even possible on flatscreens?

@silmathoron It's a relatively new 4K Samsung. I have NO idea how the ant got in there...

@silmathoron @kyle
I had that many years ago with a very small critter that chose to die inside my screen and look like three dead pixels.

Btw, I'm pretty sure it's less likely to happen in CRTs 😉

@kyle It's not gone, just intermittent non-reproducible bug. Codename Ant.

@kyle happened to me a couple of years ago in an Asus model. After I came back form lunch, it was gone and never appeared again! 🤷
