1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

The picture below is a typical example of why a security guard will drag you to one side for a full security check when travelling abroad from a UK airport...

I am sure by now you must have spotted the fact that the lady only tied a yellow ribbon on her suitcase and forgot to affix a self addressed baggage label on the handle :rolleyes:

Got to be photoshopically enhanced. Certainly the derriere looks a bit strange.

And it is...

I copied the photo (purely for scientific research of course) and in the file properties it clearly states Creation Software PaintShop Pro 15.

Sorry chaps.

Not sure what you are sorry about, the distraction is evident with or without the knowledge that it has been photoshopped

It's either been photoshopped, or she's that well endowed she's distorting the light around her making things behind her rear and her boobs look bent and contorted... :-rofl2

I'm sorry that it isn't true!

If the PhotoShop artist had just resisted the temptation to augment more than just the top half then it might have left people thinking "Well, perhaps it could be true".

In fact, you can see that the objects around the erm... curvy area are also "enhanced". The post just behind her arse is not straight...

There are basically 2 types of person ...
Those who watch a magic show and gasp in awe at the 'trick' ..
and those who try and work out how it's done..
Which are you ??
lol
Sometimes the illusion is enough ..

It's one of those new scanner machines, and there's a lot of demand for them for some reason

That is natures way of counterbalance, too big in the front will get a bigger backside, this keeps her from tipping over.

Now I am wondering as too how she knows her pants are zipped up?

That is due to "Gravitational lensing" this happens around large objects.

Like the Sun, other stars, my ex-wife's backside, things like that there.

The point is that exaggerated or not nobody thought to even look for the baggage label seeing as the title was travel security advice.............. enhancement by photoshopping merely exaggerates the distraction and where the result is unrealistic as in this case it creates a thread of people trying to deny their genetic make-up and blame it on a bit of photoshopping.

I wonder if this debate would have been the same had I posted in the jokes section

Too much detail there

As a seldom user of air travel I havea no idea about label requirements anyway.

Would I debate this in the jokes section? You betcha!
