Pareidolic crocodile

Just came across this image on Digg. While most people will probably recognize the shape of a deadly predator, it really is nothing else than a common cumulus cloud. For not completely understood reasons, humans tend to seeĀ  patterns and connections in meaningless data. Usually, there is no harm done. Majority of these images are just for a good laugh. Once in while, however, someone does something as insane as buying a toast with the Virgin Mary’s face for $28,000 on eBay. I’m not sure if it’s just wishful thinking, or the need to believe in something borderline ridiculous, but if there, by some crazy cosmic coincidence, is Virgin Mary, and you really believe that one day she gets so frakking bored out of her mind and decides to appear on a toast, you truly deserve to be scammed out of $28,000 to purchase it.
