My brother lives in Holland with his family. I really like that area!

Well, some of the racy stuff nearly caused a riot! Some really awesome people left the site never to return after being chewed and spit out. :(

oh :( I thought you meant racy like "risque" and fun...never mind. I do not like riots. People get trampled. (shudder) :ph34r:

I enjoyed Holland when I was there too. I loved the little shops and the farmers market.

I's thinking the backdrop photo was shot on a breezy day.

This thread is funny :) It's a girl with reddish-blonde hair in pigtails on a windy day, showing off a lollipop.

Well, I don't buy the explanation, for the simple fact that the person who responded wouldn't know any more than the rest of us, unless they were involved in creating the ad, or spoke to someone who was.

Aren't things like this farmed out to advertising agencies? Then again, such a blunder of a photo certainly doesn't look like something a professional would use in this kind of ad. Although I haven't done a lot of paid photography work, I'd never have used a photo like that. A pro would have taken numerous shots, then examined and compared them to find the right one for the ad. So I cannot accept that the one we see was the best of the lot. Again, this reasoning may only apply to a professional photographer.

By the time most of you see this post, I'll have sent a message to Scott. However not to ask what the thing in the photo is, but if the ad was done professionally.

I don't know WHAT the big MYSTERY was...I asumed it was her ponytail from the begining...its just windy, sunny, and a little disheveled...but thats its inocent charm! theres nothing wrong with the picture...Its a teen with a lolli!

Why does this bother you so?! Aren't there BIGGER MYSTERIES in life to contemplate about...( and I AM being NICE!) Why on EARTH would you bother Scott about something so PETTY! :blink: He has a BUISSNESS to run!!! B)

I've seen worse! leave it alone allready! :blink::lol::D

At least you finally see the HUMOR in IT!...I think!

But come on guys...give it a rest! :lol:

Aliens...LOL! :rolleyes:

I think she just swallowed a parrot with a red tail and for some reason the camera guy didn't notice.

This has been a really fun thread for the most part. I think the most obvious answer is the photographer took a whole bunch of different shots and then found out after the shoot that if the models face wasn't in the ad he would only owe her a portion of the usual fee. This was the one shot he took that didn't have her face and was taken by accident when he started to drop the camera.

See, that's just it - making an assumption just because it's a nice, comfy, normal sort of explanation, regardless of the fact that the picture simply doesn't appear that way.

Do I really think it's an alien or an underdeveloped attached twin? No, of course not. But I don't rule out any possibilities, and I don't jump to any conclusion for the sake of brushing it aside.

I'm reminded of that tale about the king's new clothes, where everyone was afraid to "step out of line" and recognize the obvious, except for a small child. That child didn't feel constrained by social pressures, to "fit in", and go along with the crowd.

There are no foolish questions. But ask no questions, and get no answers.

And as for the person in the photo leaning forward, I doubt that too. It doesn't appear to be that way. Her posture doesn't look like that to me. And what about the ponytail which is clearly visible? It isn't falling forward of her shoulder. And even IF the thing on the left side was hair, then why is it so far out from her head when the wind is blowing in the opposite direction?

I enlarged the picture somewhat, and increased the brightness to show how dark it is "under" the thing in question. Does the visible ponytail appear so voluminous and long that the same size on the side in question would completely block the light from hitting that side of her neck? And IF the wind was blowing her hair to make that shape, why don't we see ANY strands of it?

Hmm.. .. .and sometimes, the questions are complicated and the answers are quite simple.. . ... ..

At least, according to Dr. Suess.... B)

Excuse me for being curious, and wanting to know the answer to a perplexing question. Is it much different than wanting to know what's on the side of the moon not facing the earth?

For a topic which (according to you) doesn't matter, I have to wonder why you seem so bothered by my questions to have used ALL CAPS and exclamation points a number of times. This is regarded as "shouting". And tossing in jokes, political or otherwise, might not be taken as such by every reader, rather as insulting or belittling.

I do believe I've already stated what I see and don't see in this picture. But I do not know what it is. If I did, I'd not have asked.

If you do indeed have first-hand knowledge about it, like if you were the photographer, or if you spoke to the photographer, then by all means let us in on the details. Nearest I can tell, your earlier statements regarding the photo were opinion or guesswork. Much the same as other posters. If this is not the case, please do clarify.

Please remember that this thread is meant to be FUN. If you find yourself taking someone's comments too seriously, take 6 chocolate caramel pecan turtles and check back in after the caffeine and sugar have mellowed you out.

    • What?  Wine that contains  milk?  That is new to me.   You know that there are about 300 symptoms for celiac disease and you do not have to have intestinal issues.  You do not even have to have ANY symptoms (aka silent celiac).  I think you need to wait for your endoscopy.  When is it scheduled?  I assume it is not for months and that you will be expected to consume gluten daily for 2 to 4 weeks (called a gluten challenge) prior to the endoscopy.  Because you have to be on a gluten-containing diet to get results (see University of Chicago's celiac website).   Celiacs can have many intolerances that can resolve once the body heals.   I would be worried about getting a proper diagnosis.  Did your doctor advise you to go gluten free prior to the completion of all testing?  
    • Ah, more information trickles in...... There are a few things that may elevate a Ttg igA result: 1)  celiac disease, 2) Lyme disease, 3) another autoimmune disorder.  Someone recently posted during the Last month who had a very elevated TTg but ended up not having celiac disease.  Instead he was diagnosed with Lyme disease.  My memory could be wrong, so do the research.   The bottom line is that further research by a GI is recommended.   Celiac antibody results do not always correlate with the severity of intestinal damage in someone with celiac disease.  That is why an endoscopy/biopsies is still the gold standard for diagnosis.  Europe is opting to avoid the endoscopy in small children, but not the US.   Her IgG Celiacs tests were negative, so he is checking for a wheat allergy?    
    • Awok, Welcome to the forum.  Have you considered trace gluten?  Here is a study on the topic: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3598839/pdf/1471-230X-13-40.pdf It could explain why you felt good for a while.  I personally was glutened badly last summer.  I have no idea what got me.  I suspect either a prescription medication or one gluten free product (not certified).  I ended up on a whole foods diet and avoided even certified processed gluten-free foods including grains until I was healed (three to six months).  
    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight?
