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.

I know what I said and I know what I meant.

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: .. ....

    • There is also a celiac center at UCLA - Dr Weiss
    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.
