I guess StackEgg was going to tell me something, but I am having a hard time understanding what exactly. Probably the font chosen is a bit too small to recognise what it was going to say or I have a really poor eyesight.

Either way, may I know what it's saying?

    Actually, the SE staff anticipated you asking this question. The answer is a response to this Meta question, and it tells the OP to waste their time somewhere else. – Alexis King Mar 31 '15 at 23:27

    I am shocked. Why you people are so negative? – nicael Apr 1 '15 at 6:58

    You should ask a question about it on Meta! :^) – Alexis King Apr 1 '15 at 7:03

    @LightningRacisinObrit Oh, hush, I'm on good terms with nicael; I was just teasing. :p – Alexis King Apr 2 '15 at 15:31
  • "Oh, hush" Lovely. – Lightness Races in Orbit Apr 2 '15 at 16:10
  • @Alex Sorry, but actually you are being a bit rude, please don't. I don't think saying "hush" is very polite. – nicael Apr 2 '15 at 16:14

Actually, it's a well hidden advertisement to a company in Chile.

How so? Count the squares:

2 4 2 1
1 3 3 2

Or in one go: 2421-1332

Now, this is the phone number of SOCIEDAD INVERSIONES HIMALAYA LTDA - so the egg actually want you to give them a call and buy their products.

It wants to let you know that it's still in Private Beta, and as such, it desperately needs your help to get to Public Beta.

Every 20 seconds that pass a poor SE site in beta gets restarted. Don't let it restart. Help that SE network today.


It's not supposed to say anything in fact. It's just some extra big pixels used to mimic how people draw squiggly lines to show any writing that is unknown. I agree with @Rusemaster with its supposedly translation. :-)
