She just wanted to check her makeup, too.

An impromptu snapshot turned out to be more than what anyone had bargained for. "Get a picture of me putting on my lipstick," Lisa had instructed her friend as she handed her a camera, "I want to make it my Facebook profile picture." Needless to say, she didn't wind up using this photo afterall...

A Ghost on the Library Stairs?

By zach whalen

I saw this image on one of those ghost cam websites. As far as I know, no one was supposed to be in this stairwell at the time I was looking, so it's pretty creepy that you can pretty clearly see the outline of a head and shoulders.

The Ghost of Cook Road

By jellogymnast11

I was asked to house-sit for an older woman that I had met through my grandparents. She lives on Cook Road, a decent drive away from my own house so I decided to spend the night. I had only spoken to her a couple of days before about watching the house and I felt like all she could talk about was how the house was beginning to scare her with its spirits. I figured she was just reaching that age where everything scares her and spirits are the easiest thing to blame it on. Then, during the night I was there, I heard a strange low humming sound coming from the backyard. I went out to...

cost of owning a lamborghini


The bad economy has forced dealerships to reduce the prices of new cars. Especially those of exotic cars. Not only do you have to pay for the cost of buying a car but you also need to pay for all the additional expenses of owning the car. As displayed below in my picture of the Lamborghini, I was shown all the additional expenses.
The first expense is the maintenance that you must keep up with when you drive the car. You need to make sure you pay for oil changes every thousand miles and that oil change normally leads to an additional charge of a labor fee. Also with the maintenance...

Get on Board to Stay on Track

By LuckyFaith

We do not, as Americans, hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. If we did, all men and women in America would have the same rights, but they do not. Women still earn less than men in the workforce and have not been elected president of our nation. Homophobic laws prevent some Americans from marrying the person they love or remaining with them and making decisions for them when they are critically ill. Racism continues to occur all over the United States on a daily basis with the Ku Klux Klan still very active throughout the country.

America has been...

What is in my mind

By aquaman

I'm a big Caps fan and as one I have a very strong dislike for the Pens. So in my twisted little world this how a game between the Caps and Pens would play. Slapshot would royally bring the pain and take a spear to the gut of a penguin in front of the entire Pens bench. The best way I could possibly describe this image is that it represents the rivalry between the two teams that has become much more aggressive in recent years. The games are more intense with fans being more vocal in these games then in others. I can speak on such matters with personal experience, a Capitals vs....

Pop Icons

By annie.bru

This image brings together three of the greatest pop icons in history: Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Lady Gaga. The first is Elvis Presley, the ‘King of Rock and Roll’. Elvis’ charisma, bold style and attitude, and numerous hit records made him one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. The second is Michael Jackson, the ‘King of Pop’. Michael Jackson was a groundbreaking artist from childhood through to his adult years. He broke new ground in music, dance, and entertainment as a whole. The last icon is Lady GaGa, an impressive new force in pop music with radical...

Nzinga versus the Hydra

By b4ssm4st3r

This image combines several themes which have always fascinated me, and which have defined my life. The first theme, probably the most apparent, is that of myths and fantasies. Growing up, I was always obsessed with the stories about dragons and heroes with magic swords. The second theme is that of the video game. I have always been drawn towards video games because of their storyline, and it just so happens that many popular games draw inspiration from older mythological stories. Final Fantasy is one, but so is the Legend of Zelda, and even more strategic...

I got that 4-H spirit up in my head!

By msmith4

This 4-H Clover image has little to no linguistic meaning. The letter “H” appears in each of the clover’s leaves, but that means little to a person who is not familiar with 4-H. Some may see the letter as a part of the non-coded iconic image, while others may read the letters much like a brand name, as if it had a linguistic message. As a part of the non-coded iconic message, the letters contribute to the ensemble of the 4-H Clover. Without the letters, one may just associate the overall form with a nondescript clover. The clover incorporates five distinct pictures of people in various...

Shades of Gray: the God Problem

By kalki

The viewer is possibly first hit with the photo of a shirtless, smoking Christopher Hitchens, and then takes in C.S. Lewis on the left and the large type in the center. Maybe he laughs, realizing that, since Hitchens is shirtless, he is not supposed to take this too seriously. The yeti is also a tip-off.

Roland Barthes, in Rhetoric of the Image, describes images as having three types of messages: the literal, linguistic, and symbolic. Literally, the viewer sees two large images of men opposite each other (Hitchens and C.S.), a smaller image on the right (a yeti), a few symbols (a...
