Title: Pareidolia
Post by: b_lumenkraft on June 01, 2019, 11:09:08 AM
Pareidolia
From Wikipedia:

Quote
Pareidolia (/pærɪˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is the tendency to interpret a vague stimulus as something known to the observer, such as seeing shapes in clouds, seeing faces in inanimate objects or abstract patterns, or hearing hidden messages in music.

Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, ...

Well, some of us are looking at satellite images and clouds from above on a daily basis. I think it should be entertaining if we share, what our brain makes of things.

Pareidolia is fun!

I thought those were a llama (I started typing lama, whoops) and a seal.  I see "lineations" in the Petermann (https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,53.msg184436.html#msg184436) Glacier tongue!  :)

Post by: b_lumenkraft on June 01, 2019, 05:41:22 PM
I don't know if lineations in a glacier qualify, but hey, who am i to judge. Could be a snake also, right? ;)

I do see the Llama (as in Lloyd) but i don't see the seal.

Well spotted by Niall Dollard here:

Beautiful sentinel image (dated 030619) of the blue ice at the head of Tanquary Fiord, north central Ellesmere Island.

Title: Re: Pareidolia
Post by: kassy on June 20, 2019, 11:44:36 PM
And that is where it breaks down for me...

Long ago in the Netherlands we had Wordt Vervolgd on TV. It was a TV show about comics and it had an item with kids imitating the voices one of their three heroes.

These were Donald Duck quacking a bit. Then Road Runner. One small kid just said 'miep miep zoef' which was sort of accurate even if it was just the text without the sound effect. It became a running gag in my family. The third one was that Woody Woodpecker but I can't remember the look or sound. It took me years even to remember WW was the third one in the contest (i cheated and asked my family who the third was).

So I don't see WW there but that is just the limits of pareidolia...
Title: Re: Pareidolia
Post by: Neven on June 20, 2019, 11:54:23 PM
Ha, I remember Wordt Vervolgd, with Han Peekel.  ;D

Here's what WW looks like:

Fortunately for me, with the rarest of exceptions, the faces I see every day are attached to my friends, neighbors, coworkers, family and Houdi (my wife's 21 year old cat, which I call an elephant, but I think you don't want to here that story).

OK:  I grew up a 'dog person', partly because the several cats we had all died young.  So when my wife and kids got Houdi (after Houdini because, as a kitten, he would climb the textured wall paper to the ceiling), I was excused from caring for him because "I hate cats" (or so I said - you know, it's a political thing).  Well, the kids grew up and left home (all in their 30's now - I should be grateful).  My wife regularly 'teases' me by asking if I love Houdi, so I have come to reply, "Yes I do, because he is an elephant."  Houdi is grey in color, so why not? And I do 'love' elephants (I even receive an "elephants - 'good news'" weekly Google e-mail).  With the special needs of an older cat, I do a fair amount of care for him (the 3 kids in town don't come around on a twice-daily basis to do what they promised 21 years ago - sigh … kids these days!), but that's okay because I love elephants (and my wife).

Thanks for that, fg. It reminds me of the reason I am no longer a doner--it is vanishingly rare that an organ from a relatively wealthy doner  end up with a relatively poor recipient...but maybe sometimes that leads to some kind of reconciliation???

Yes, pigtails. I always get those mixed up.  :-\
Her skirt is India. I can see it so clearly...

I am certain I see her. She's sort of bending at the waist a bit right? She might be German... But I don't see the doglike creature... Is it in the water?

Yes, she's bending backwards a little, with two pigtails. What looks like her boobs (or an arm) is touching the nose of the doglike creature that basically takes up all of Asia minus Russia (which he carries on his back). You can clearly see its head. The body needs more imagination. It's kinda like a walking teddy bear with Arabia as one of its legs. China is the head, and in it you can see an eye, a nose, and a big ear hanging down.

Why dutch? Probably my imagination running wild...  ;D
Title: Re: Pareidolia
Post by: oren on August 02, 2020, 12:02:55 AM
Finally can see what you mean. Her head is in Thailand. The skirt is long, no legs/feet below. Pigtails sort of. And it's an arm.

Yeah, her face is Thailand, I see her looking towards the water... her left pig tail (on the right for us as I see it) is Thailand and mainland Malaysia.

But I don't see her as bending backwards, but as bending forwards slightly like she's waiting a table or stooping to pick a flower... (I see it more with Sri Lanka as heal, but her face is still turned -- in the image -- down and right).

Why German? Well the dutch damsel photo is pretty convincing, but image attached (skirt is too short though... and maybe the beer cheapens it, I donno).

Oh yeah. I love that pirate with the creepy hand. Made me think of pirates of the Caribbean.

It was especially cool that both were in the Greenland sea at the same day. Some kind of voodoo day?  :-\

Yes...especially with the N. polar eye!
However, judging by the modest ears, it is probably a mammoth.
Perhaps the ice cap is signalling a looming extinction.
Title: Re: Pareidolia
Post by: kassy on August 09, 2020, 06:16:04 PM
Lets call her Nellie the Mammoth then. 

To Bombay a traveling circus came, they brought an
cloned mammoth and Nellie was her name
One dark night she slipped her iron chain
And off she ran to the Arctic Sea
And was never seen again
Until the satellite era


Makes more sense then i thought it would with some minor adaptations.

Sadly the second verse is a bit ruin these days.  ;)
