the great man-faced fish?
    #3626346 - 01/14/05 01:54 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

is this a genetic mutation, our earliest example of human evolution, science playing Dr. muroe, or just some ass-hole with photo shop?
either way reported by Reuters, and posted by yahoo. YOU DECIDE!

Interestingly Freaky!!!!!




One of two 19-year-old fish with human-like facial features in Chongju, about 140 km (88 miles) south of Seoul on January 10, 2005. The hybrid species fish were born between a carp and a leather carp in the pond of a personal house in Chongju. Each of the two female fish is 80 cm (32 inches) long and 50 cm (20 inches) in circumference. The owner of the fish said on Monday that their faces have begun to look more and more human over the last couple of years. Picture taken January 10. KOREA OUT REUTERS/Chungcheong Today

Doesn't look like anyone I have ever met - scales, no forehead, protruding nose or chin, etc.

At least this is a way more on-topic thread than my locked one about truth and integrity.  :rolleyes:

The image isn't clear.
Either that's a photoshop job or a terrible photograph.

Why are those two sets of pectoral fins so close together?
Is it a double exposure or a flash with time delay effect?
Is a shot from a different angle available?

i think it's legit. it was reported by Reuters, and posted on yahoo. i think its just like that potato chip shaped like Abe Lincoln. except its a not a potato chip shaped like Abe Lincoln, its a fish with a slightly man face.it's just one of those freakish things our world makes. i think the fins are that way on that fish, look at the other side and you can see it has 2 fins also.
Remember this is Reuters, a very reputable news agency. They took the photo. i think this is a great place to post this.. just like my question said.
is this a genetic mutation, our earliest example of human evolution, science playing Dr. muroe, or just some ass-hole with photo shop?

now philosophize!!!

i think people do like to see their image in things, and think it will be creepy yet interesting when we are able to geneticly mutate ourselves and make a hybrid fish-man.

dide Reuters really take the photo, or did they perhaps pay a third party money in exchange for the photo?

it almost looks more like a painting than a photo to me

The fish faced man is in all acutally a fish man with a face like a man and the body of a fish.

Yahoo lists the story in the Yahoo! TV: Entertainment News & Gossip directory :smirk:

But unlike truth, giving or gratitude, this man-fish/fish-man is very relevant to our collective personal growth.

Bad Photoshop job.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda
