It was in a frame, sort of a wide border, and I wanted the frame to put on an avatar was using.
I didn't pay =any= attention to the Strieber alien within.
When I got done, (I was moving very quickly on a hot avvy request; uh hot as in hot off the presses) I did a group save and exited.
Later I'm looking for something and see this strange wider version in thumbnail, so I pull it up.
I'm watching TV, so I don't look that closely. Then suddenly I see the two noses and it freaked me out.
At the time I had no memory of how that could have happened.
Since then, piecing it together this has to be the explanation.
But it was so subtle, and even sort of subliminal that it freaked me out.
In fact, who's to say that real Aliens don't have two noses.
It sort of hits at the 'Uncanny Valley'
hypothesis. It's slightly different to a human face,
but subtly odd such that we get easily creeped by it.
Anyway that's my thought.
