Monitors and Butts

I recently posted some pictures of me dancing with a couple of ladies and it turns out that Dave at the legion showed them the pictures on the computer there. It has a wide screen monitor. Well it turns out that one of them got PO'ed at me for posting a picture of what she called her BIG butt on the internet so I removed those pictures. I'm sure she wasn't aware of the "Wide Screen Syndrome"?

Wide Screen Syndrome
Now it just so happens that wide screen monitors stretch everything horizontally by a LOT so it makes a perfectly normal and nice looking butt look much larger. Someone needs to clue monitor manufactures in on keeping the correct aspect ratio of BUTTS on their wide screen monitors! I can think of all sorts of stuff that this could enhance in a positive way and one would be the male ego, but not butts unless it happens to be an extremely skinny butt.

On another note Got the link to this from Ring and its a good place to check for shelf life of about any kind of foods you can think of. Worth at least checking it out. I book marked it.

  2. Hate to say it, but the photos as displayed on the Legion's monitor are in the correct aspect ratio. "Wide Screen Syndrome" was common when wide screen monitors first came out. The video cards available did not originally support the native resolution of the monitors, so the monitors would automatically stretch the image horizontally. A 1024w by 768h image would be stretched to 1366w by 768h. Now that video cards have caught up, and the native resolutions of the monitors are now supported, the images will always come out in the correct aspect ratio, as long as the monitor is driven with the native resolution.

    Regardless, the photo was a bad one, and it can be blamed on the camera optics, and the perspective from which I took the photo. If i had stood up and took the photo from eye level, it would have looked much different. Just like you learn in art class, perspective makes a huge difference. IE, two parallel roads running into the horizon will seem to become one near the horizon.

  3. Glad you liked it MDR.

    TnT, I've got all sorts of stuff that needs to be dumped around here. flower, cornmeal and a bunch of other junk.

    Damn Dave! I was trying to smooth the water. You best not show her this blog thread and then let her read your message or she'll be pissed off at both of us!

    Never mind shelf life of goods - are you also checking the best before date on all those packaged goods you buy? :)

  6. Dani, I don't always do that, but I'm sure there is stuff in here that is well past the best if used by date. Guess I should check it all.

  7. Thanks for the link on the dates. I didn't see anything wrong with the photo of you dancing. I started to add advice to the lady with the derriere problem but will keep it to myself.

  8. Good link Judy. Maybe I just shouldn't have been dancing while Dave had his camera in hand. ;)

  9. When I was in the Navy way back when a famous song came out, called "I Like Big Butts"

    I have been halfway around the world and I've seen a lot of butts (on women of course) The best butts were in southern Spain. The biggest butts are in El Paso, Texas. Every things bigger in Texas, including butts.

  13. CC, I guess I like big butts to cause my two eX'es both got them after I married them. Fortunately neither of them watch this blog though.

    Terry, some people don't know when to keep their keyboard shut.

    Bkid, We're not talking fat butts here we're talking big buts. I think there's a difference?
