Aliens found on Mars

Well, at least that’s what UFO spotters looking at this NASA Mars Rover picture saw:

I, personally, am more inclined towards a bowling ball, which would definitely indicate the presence of intelligent life on Mars, unlike here, on Earth.

Jesus is everywhere

Earlier today I wrote a bit about pareidolia in my crocodile in the sky article.  The following video shows can quickly can things get out of hand, esp. when sensation-hungry media get involved, LOL.

It seems to me that our good old Jesus has forgotten what happened to him the first he tried to get into people’s heads. I guess he just can’t help himself. But now seriously, is appearing on toasts, on trees, in clouds, etc. all he’s got? I’d personally expect at least a walk on water (I mean, even Tiget Woods can pull that off), although another resurrection would certainly earn him a few extra points for style.

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 see  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.
