I think Seniazi is probably right.
BTW: speaking of easy image mods...there appears to be a peninsula of sand in the upper right that is ABOVE sky. I had started to adjust colors to make it appear to be a nice sunny day when I discovered the "flying" peninsula! which point I decided I didn't understand the image. The horizon should be a colinear extension of that sand spit to the left of the palm tree ?!?
To the photographer: Just some increased saturation and gamma correction makes this image much nicer. - Sep 15 2011

If you type "Nazi cardinal" into Google image search, it will reward you with a visual cascade of similar atrocities.
The history of Latin (what a misnomer) America, the Crusades, protestants, Jews, and anybody they didn't like is all very similar.
Its foolish to consider the "cross" to be a symbol of peace, righteousness, or even (especially) of Biblical Christianity.
Its just a Roman symbol of raw bloody conquest and immorality.
Read history.
Read the Bible.

The page that the download button links to does not contain the picture in the thumbnail.
The instructions for the picture are [sic] "searh more photoes", two misspellings in a single phrase!
I don't know what search is suggested. Is it "more photoes", or "more photos", or "photos", or...or...
There is no button on the page that links to more photos.
The thumbnail does not link to a preview of the image. It links to another if I needed one.

In conclusion, this posting deserves a very poor rating in its current state. It wastes everyone's time and effort. Perhaps it should be removed. - May 05 2011

lol...I think you're absolutely right.
And the idea of blurred shadow on her face is a good one.
I wonder if there's a way to make the predatory parallelism less giving her eyes a yellowish wolf-in-headlights glow...or slightly more canine teeth..or hint at disheveled wolf-like fur...or elongate her eyes...or put a "feminist" wolfpack hiding in the dark background.
I think I'd try to stay away from the tired over-used vampire skip the canine teeth thing.
What you're saying is a very different thing.

The original microshaft .exe from VirtualGirl maintained continuous TCP/IP connections with VirtualGirl's central server without any explanation as to why.
So why would I let someone run an undisclosed .exe on my system?
So, QUESTION: Is the source for this public? Can I examine it? Can I compile it myself?
Otherwise, is this spyware?

Perhaps there is some subtle difference in this from the previous half dozen. But I can't find it.
Others have complained that pasting a Gnome logo on some existing photograph represents insufficient artistic skill.
This (and all it predecessors save one) represent even less. A quick GIMP adjustment in the "Colorize" or "Color Balance" menu choice results in, we are to suppose, more "beauty".
The first was nice. But please, no more.

On a more constructive note:
Please consider convolutions, texturizing, optical effects like flares, or layering transparencies. Or even start with a different base image. I would be glad to help anyone understand how to do any of these things.

I guess we are to conclude women are disgusting and Renoir was wrong to paint them with such explicit impressionism.
...and we are wrong too????

I believe Renoir's statement was something like, "If God had not created the female breast, I would never have gone into art."

BTW: I like "Olympia", by Edouard Manet. Make no mistake. She was painted as a prostitute with demonic symbols.

(And don't make the lame "this is not that art" argument. NOTHING on this site is that.)

My question, though, are there themes that already have window contents transition to semi-transparent when window focus events happen elsewhere.

Besides, don't they teach that greed is a deadly sin? and the lust for such luxuries?

Lovin' it

Wallpaper Other by Bear73 7 comments

You're certainly among the intelligentsia.

Just skim the parts about the Papal Nuncio to Germany who became Pius XII. There are quite a few of those parts as his involvement was close. Note that he was Catholicism's previous "Nazi Pope".

Then there's the Vatican's underground railroad to rescue principals from the Nuremberg trials. Papers signed by Vatican officials. They sometimes dressed Nazi's as priests. The escape route went physically through the Vatican using it as a safe house. I can't remember if this is mentioned in "Third Reich". I seem to remember reading somewhere that this was the reason why the Nuremberg Trials were so small and short. - Apr 09 2010

I know of yet more catholics who took it up the tailpipe while young and still refuse to sue or file charges. So your "Lovin' It" subtext is more appropriate than you know.

I still don't think world opinion has fully grasped how deep this problem goes. And Roman Catholicism has fended off these charges so many times in the past that they may succeed yet again.

If they DON'T succeed, they will need a world war to distract us all. That part truly terrifies me in this day and age.
Nobody has ever done World Wars better than the Vatican. See "The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich" by Shirer. - Apr 09 2010

I'm not gonna play the Roman Catholic Game. (The Game works as follows).

Roman Catholicism commits some atrocity. (Choose any of the many superlative examples from history.) The victims and those who care about justice complain loudly. Roman Catholicism uses its role as definer of all morality to declare the complaints immoral (e.g. hate crimes or whatever) and illegal. The victims become the sinners in need of "forgiveness". The original atrocity is glossed over and forgotten.

Thus is justice made illegal.

People, we need to carefully avoid blanket statements on this subject. Just because RCism is big and bad doesn't mean ALL religions are the same. For example, the Egyption Book of the Dead laid out ground rules for marriage that condemned marital unfaithfulness. Murder is condemned for religious reasons, etc.

Also, religion is a LOT older than 2000 years. (Cuneiform religious tablets, anyone?) I think we could all benefit by doing some reading on the subject.

Nevertheless, the history of RC hypocrisy is so bad it sucks dead toads.

In answer to your question: see the Wikipedia article on "lust". Roman Catholicism INVENTED pedophilia in the 4th C. If you doubt that, read Thomas Aquinas thoughts on marriage in Summa Theologica. Then there are many other books to confirm this. READ instead of trolling/sanitizing history like the Catholics are doing on the Wikipedia page on Roman Catholic sex abuse!!

SECONDLY: RCism is NOT "the Church". How dare you claim exclusive ownership to essentially GOD's domain. Every time I hear some Roman Catholic <expletive deleted> refer to RCism as "the Church", I want to puke.

So, yes, attacks on RC pedophilia is correct and moral and just. - Mar 22 2010

When people tell the truth about evil behavior, that's moral responsibility, not bad taste.
This has been going on for 16 centuries. Its about time people act with sufficient courage to speak out with all the eloquence, acrimony (if need be), and ridicule (if need be) that the practice deserves.

Don't blame him.
The central problem is that Roman Catholicism has been scamming the world's religions for 1600 years on this subject. This is why we have the heavily spin-doctored translation of that often-quoted verse, Mt 5:28. If you read ancient Greek, you discover it doesn't say that at all.
And then there are all the verses that the standard bible-quoters ignore because they're just too uncomfortable.
I'm really getting tired of pointing out documented and verifiable fact to people who don't want to hear.
These people just really don't want to hear what Jesus Christ actually said. - Feb 07 2010

"Sick wallpaper" ???
Roman Catholic theologians debated for centuries whether sex with one's wife or sex with one's mistress was the more evil.
Thomas Aquinas argued things about heterosexual desire that are truly preposterous.
Its no wonder priests prefer little boys and no wonder people can't recognize normalcy.
Why should you accept/expound their twisted definition of "morality" even for an instant?
