ArbitraryConstant: Looks like heap beat me to it. :)

Yipes... Looks like I spoke too soon. My cheap VPS is having trouble with the one image I've already posted here, now that it's green.

I think perhaps a little tuning is in order...

Now its a UFO.

It appears this thread only went green quite recently, but I must admit, this has been perhaps my fav thread in a long, liter, lurking history.

My initial reaction was "Well it looks like a streetlight to me. How odd"

But seeing as how so many TF'ers are on the same side of the fence, I feel vindicated and wonder if perhaps I don't belong to your world after all.
2007-02-18 05:31:59 PM  
Wow. This thread just may be worth $5/month

/ now where's my Visa card?
2007-02-18 05:32:18 PM  

It is a reflection of the streetlight you showed us. The reflection is probably coming from the inside of your camera lens. Use a lens hood.

No, I wasn't, emocomputerjock. Some kind Farker provided the link to that particular thread (as well as the Ballsack Conundrum) sometime back.

My sides still hurt from perusing those threads.

Someone should re-link those.

It's a Fark'n streetlamp.
2007-02-18 05:32:55 PM  
It's a streetlight. DNRTFT
2007-02-18 05:33:06 PM  
It is the rare hovering streetlamp. it travels the globe bestowing it's pale light to citizens of the world.

It looks like a street light in the rain to me.

It's a Larch, note the lower left corner

Hello lamppost.

/What cha knowing?
2007-02-18 05:35:22 PM  
TFers have all the fun.

It's the eye of an emo god. He's so sad. forked just needs to give him an acoustic guitar and a hug. One-eyed gods have feelings too!

This thread. Now with 100% more hot frauleinage.

I'm pretty sure it's a donkey.

Dear Subby,


/don't forget your towel.

2007-02-18 05:36:45 PM  
Who did that song "Is that a streetlight or the moon"?
2007-02-18 05:36:51 PM  
forked_at_fark: Please post a picture using NO zoom, so we can see these hills and whatnot.

I can't be the only one who has a new background.
2007-02-18 05:38:12 PM  
Looks like light reflecting off of a smear & goober resulting from a hastily cleaned 48x lens; or even better, teleconverter combo.

...Or maybe a streetlight.
2007-02-18 05:38:46 PM  

I don't think subby is evar going to say anything to anyone ever again. Either from shame or the aliens.
2007-02-18 05:39:17 PM  
its a alien space ship leaking anal probe lube

forked_at_fark: so I turned off the digital zoom and settled for 48x.

And yet the camera you linked to has only 12X optical zoom...

Don't stop believing

Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night

My faith in the power of Fark is restored.

Bless you, Meet Us at the Stick.

I cant believe no one figured this out yet.
It's clearly the bat signal.
Bat-shiat crazy signal, but still bat signal.

/+1 for street lamp
2007-02-18 05:41:36 PM  
I think forked is busting balls and the joke's on those who spent more than an hour arguing with him, hunting down comparison shots and photoshopping the "evidence."

After all, it was established in the first damn post it was a streetlight.

Nick Nostril: /obligatory

Mail me, and you got a free month on TF.
2007-02-18 05:41:56 PM  
sorry forked_at_fark but if it looks like a street light and it smells like a street light and feels like a street light it probably is a street light/ufo.

/i tried to believe but
//it still looks like a street light
2007-02-18 05:42:04 PM  
bingo the psych-o: Clearly, it is an alien probe that closely resembles a streetlight. It's like one of those three-legged Martian war machines from "War of the Worlds", only with one leg and a light bulb.

I like it!
2007-02-18 05:42:19 PM  
ahhh best thread ever.

2007-02-18 05:42:41 PM  
How do you take a picture of something and then wonder what you took a picture of?

can't you see it with your eyes too?

Combat Medici: Jeff Goldblum walks in the kitchen and finds Glenn Close slouched over the table, coffee cup in hand. He pours one for himself, sits at the table and says: "A streetlight?"

"if you're going to sleep this late, you're going to miss a few dramas"

no wait ... "are we the first ones up?"

/yay, green!
2007-02-18 05:44:08 PM  
Nick Nostril's hot frauleinage looks like Patricia Kara from "Deal or No Deal". Of course, it might just be a particularly well-formed streetlight too.

goeniegoegoe: Mail me, and you got a free month on TF.

aww, goonie, he didn't even put a street lamp on his graph!
