Weird Looking "object" In Gluten-Free Mall Banner

What a thread lol :-P Can't believe I missed it!

The very simple answer is overexposed lighting (because she's in direct sunlight) together with lots of contrast, and missing links (the lines are not connected) :-)

The lollipop in the center of her head is creating a line-gap in the object behind it (her head), and our minds are usually programmed to be able to connect gaps in lines, but in this case the lighting of the image is really overexposed (making the light areas very light, and the dark areas very dark with a lot of missing tones in between), so some brains might not be able to make the connection between the lines due to the humongous difference in lights and shadows (the amount of contrast).

To help put your mind at ease.. I connected the lines for you :-)

But I really hope that my rushed drawing won't create even more confusion! :-O

Here's another example I borrowed off the net to show you what I mean with overexposed lighting + contrast

I have a better approach RiceGuy, why do YOU tell us what it is, after all, you would know better than me, right? I have my pen in hand, my notebook, and you are on the couch...please explain to us all what you see in this picture that we don't?

hahah seriously! I don't understand why everyone's explaination, including the creator of the ad, is still wrong in your mind....or why you even care so much to begin with. Time to let it go!!

No reason to feel bad! We know you ment RISQUE! :rolleyes::lol::D

You may need to stop and take a breath here, hon.

Your post is confusing to me because I do not really "feel bad" about anything---why would I feel bad?? :blink: --- my comment was said in humor in response to MOMMIDA and YOU misinterpreted it entirely.

I know what I said and I know what I meant. It does not need to be re-interpreted.

And I think it may be time for people to stop arguing about this topic as quite frankly, it is not really all that funny anymore, it's just absurd and things being said are bordering on the "nasty".

RiceGUY does not find it amusing.

He is dead-serious, apparently.

That's his prerogative.

Even if we do not understand why he will not let it go.

He has been answered many times and Dani even provided more clarification, (thank you, Dani! :) ) but he seems unsatisfied by the answers, even from admin.

Just let it go.

HEY! :) More Dr. Suess!.. .. . . . .What are the chances that a single thread will feature TWO quotes from this literary genius?? .. ... ...um, I think.... :unsure:.. ... .it's very close, anyway.... . . .. .. "I meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful -- One hundred per cent".

Sorry, can't tie an elephant into the subject matter, here... . .. that ponytail looks nothing like anything pachyderm....... . . .. ... Carry on! Or....not.. . ... :unsure: .. ....

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
