    I just love this photo. It gives me the creeps and really makes me wonder……it’s an excellent shot. I wonder if anything happened to this guy. I mean, I wonder if he fell off that ladder or if it broke or WHAT?????? I need more info!

    I couldn’t believe that was real, so I went to national geographics website and they say it’s a hoax. The picture of the chopper was taken in san fransisco at the golden gate bridge and the shark photo was taken in south africa. Then someone linked them together and emailed it around. “very cool picture though”

      Well that’s certainly disappointing. Why do people do stuff like that?

        Well, guy 1 does it as a joke, or a “lookit what I can do with this cool software!” He passes it on to guy 2, who thinks it’s cool, and forwards it to six of his friends, one of which is one of those who believes that “gullible” isn’t in the dictionary, and HE passes it on to 25 of his friends, who also have that weird dictionary…. and a rumor is born. Because nobody checks it.

        I’ve gotten to the point that I’ve got Snopes on my “most clicked” list – I check durn near everything.

        It’s still a cool picture, and I stand by my original comment – if that DID happen, those are gonna be some seriously soiled pants!

    Goh, that is indeed disappointing, but it is good Shane mentioned it. It still is an amazing picture, Laura!
