First off, these are you your network over the broadcast IP, which means
some machine is spraying the LAN with tons of UDP (which is a
fire-and-forget kind of thing). I suggest you figure out where they're
coming from, as some machine on your LAN is doing it, in my opinion. This
could be some machine being infected with a trojan/worm/virus of some sort.

The penalty for laughing in a courtroom is six months in jail; if it
were not for this penalty, the jury would never hear the evidence.
