Removing blank location block causes 404 errors

I'm new to nginx and had this in my conf file which I had copied some 
time ago but never filled it in and continued building a test page with 
images, css and javascript:

location ~* 

Today, I deleted that block and now the images, css and javascript files 
are all returned a 404. I don't understand what's going on.
I'm using version 1.5.11
