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!!

Its OK IRISH...you were gramically correct! :D

(this is copied and pasted strait from the dictionary).....

racy (rs)
adj. racier, raciest
1. Having a distinctive and characteristic quality or taste.
2. Strong and sharp in flavor or odor; piquant or pungent.
3. Risqu; ribald.
4. Vigorous; lively.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[From race.]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

racily adv.
raciness n.

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

It was racy, risque, and full of double enterndre. (You thought correct IH, so there was no reason for correction.)

All it takes is for one person to be offended and then all the fun stops and the ALL CAPS come out. :huh:

These on-line tiffs seem to coincide with moon cycles. :ph34r:

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.... . . .. ..
