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:

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.. . ... ..

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.
