An Online Stocking Stuffer From DrHGuy

Be A Capricious Snow Globe God Snow  Globe has cracked me up since I first posted it in 2011.

My favorite online snow globe empowers viewers to grab the snow globe with a cursor, give it a shake, and watch the people inside tumble around shouting “avalanche,” “earthquake,” and general indicators of panic. Then, they return to their routine affairs – the people getting into fights, the snowman eating the snowman maker, fist fights, ski jumping, and an old man yelling out the windows.  If you wait long enough the old man will sleep walk into the glass.

The animation above is only a demo that shows what happens when you shake the snow globe with your mouse. The real fun is doing it yourself at  Interactive Snow Globe.

Note: Interactive Snow Globe requires that Flash be enabled in your browser. Instructions for enabling Flash in IE, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, & Opera can be found here. I find the snow globe works best with Internet Explorer.

Update: Alas, this Flash-powered gizmo’s days are numbered because “Adobe will no longer be supporting Flash Player after December 31, 2020 and Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021.” Bummer, eh?
