The Truth comes out?

Good composition. Especially the use of light as textue. If the print were as clean as this photo looks I'd purchase a print.

Were the outlets originally in the baseboards?

I'm thinking of forming a coalition of victim-activists this winter and calling ourselves 'The Human League.'

If you're working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, give me a call.

Must be a Facebook trend. Here is another possible tip hoax:

Racist Red Lobster receipt may be hoax, analysts say

Or is it Facebook trying to drum up business?

Didn't Obama tell us that he is the post racial president??

Yeah....I dunno what that means either.

"If the print were as clean as this photo looks I'd purchase a print."

It's downloadable if you click through to Flickr. You can print it out.

Re the hoax: Stuff like that is usually a hoax. People need to learn not to take it viral until they know.

Get better bullshit detectors. The more perfectly it suits an agenda, the more likely it is to be concocted. That makes it more tempting to propagate. You've got to resist, people! It's like email that wants to give you millions of dollars. It's so good...

Obamacare is the airbag of health care.

Automakers were forced by govt. to include airbags before they (automakers) were ready.
The airbags killed children in the passanger seat (decapitated some), an unforseen consequence.
Un popular laws were passed requiring children to ride in the back seat.
Modern children accept riding in the back, not missing riding in front, because they never had the opportunity.
Future generations will accept having Obamacare payments deducted from their paycheck,just like they accept riding in the back.

For improving hoax detection: Think of the people one knows who share the purported opinions of the naughty party. Is it likely that those people or their ilk would do what has been alleged? Or does what has been alleged better match a common caricature?

There aren't many walking caricatures in the world. If something perfectly matches a caricature, that's probably exactly what it is.

FullMoon, or future generations will get used to growing up in the countries their parents immigrated to.

Oh, say it isn't so!

Iran Is Playing Obama, Says Savvy Saudi Prince

Obama, Alwaleed says, is a man who is in desperate political straits and needs a victory -- any victory -- to right his presidency. “Obama is in so much of a rush to have a deal with Iran,” he said. “He wants anything. He’s so wounded. It’s very scary. Look, the 2014 elections are going to begin. Within two months they’re going to start campaigning. Thirty-nine members of his own party in the House have already moved away from him on Obamacare. That’s scary for him.”

Thanks Ann.
we have a large format photo printer I hope it stays crisp at 8 X 10.

Yep, nice composition..I like to look at things in weird angles -- the difference you see will amaze you, esp. in photography (and I am not even a big photographer).

Ann Althouse said...

Yes, the outlets from 1923 are in the baseboards.

This CNN post, advising college boys to get a girl's consent to sex beforehand, in writing, and follow up with a post-coital text to prove manifest adoption ...

http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/26/opinion/jones-sex-consent-texting/

brought to mind your Yale post about the cavortings of Kai and Morgan.

Next up? Boys will need a pre-coital contract (affirming the complete absence of any consideration, of course) and a videotape capturing its execution.

And then girls will be the ones complaining about how boys are so calculating, unromantic and transaction-oriented.

We own the exact same table. I have noticed yours in previous photo posts. We obtained ours via an interior decorator in the early 1970's. A classic piece.

Ann, I would be interested in where and when your got yours.
