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: .. ....

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
