    I didn't see this posted anywhere. Has anybody else seen this story?

    The claim is, the bottom half of these airport security photos are identical, therefore photoshopped. Thoughts?

    It's not a photoshop, it's simply a poor quality video feed that hasn't refreshed the bottom half of the frame yet. It would indicate that the two men weren't very far apart and went past the camera shortly after each other.

    What is this, 1970? :) If security video refreshes that slow (like one frame every N seconds), then it's on a full frame basis. And what would be the point of a security camera that missed half the people who walked by it?

    It was actually a photocopier mishap. The two photos are obviously crops of a larger video frame, and are different sizes. One was on top of the other when the copies were made.

    Can I disagree with my own post? Honestly, most of the security video I've seen is taken at a very low frame rate in order to save space. It did look like a video glitch to me, but the copier mishap is obviously the correct explanation.

    What's rather bewildering here is why anyone would think that it would be a photoshop job, when it's so incredibly obvious they have the same legs. What would adding the legs actually do? What has been photoshopped besides pasting on some legs? The following chain of logic seems to have some missing links:

    Do they really think this? Are they leaping on anything that comes up without thought? Or is there some deliberate attempt to stir things up, even though they know it's bogus?

    Yeah, 'they' have the technical expertise to make an airliner disappear, but cannot handle a simple composite photo. Shouldn't have delegated that job to the intern.

    This just in! Here is a picture of the photocopier involved! Both of you are right!

    Yes- all of that. I have come to the conclusion that a majority of the bunk flying around on the internet is put there by people don't care about what is true. It doesn't even cross their minds. They just vomit stuff onto the internet for the sheer thrill of doing it, like a form of masturbation.

    What a wonderful example of how conspiracy theorists believe that the powers that be, who are manipulating world events for their own purposes, doing so via their almost unlimited power and funding, are a combination of extremely good at carrying out hoaxes designed to keep the populace frightened, BUt who are incredibly inept at the same time. Here we have a picture, supposedly photoshoped to illustrate the supposed hoax. Who photoshopped this? A 6 year old?

    I've heard the suggestion a number of times that there is some kind of ancient babylonian code that compels the hidden rulers of the worlds to leave obvious yet plausibly deniable clues about everything they do, so they are not corrupted by the evil of lying about it, as they have indirectly told the truth about it, or something.

    Examples:

    Clues!! My 5 year old granddaughter would be able to see this 'clue'. Hah!

    The examples you cited are certainly good at illustrating the craziness.

    The mysticism and religious tones are truly troubling. Its as if there has been no advancement in thought since the 1500's

    They like to leave clues, apparently. :)
