Most logical reason: Someone is sending SYN packets to port 80 of this
machine with a source address of your machine. If it isn't you, then it's
someone spoofing your IP address. The machine isn't running a webserver,
so it responds with a ACK+RST.
Perhaps there WAS a webserver at that address that was ticking someone off
enough to get itself packeted out of existence.... or perhaps someone got
a new DHCP lease...
