ahahaha. Of all the things to believe..
Honestly, the ears... He probably had surgery to pin them back. My cousin had the same, very simple procedure, basically the backside of the ear is
attached to the skin behind the ear to make them stick out less, cartilage is cut as needed (which could explain the difference in looks; you need to
cut that extra stuff so the ears don't have a fold). Simple experiment.. if you have ears that stick out, press them back and see/feel how weird your
ear looks in places that bend-- that is what would be cut off. Few stitches, little scarring.
And I agree with one of the posters (far too lazy to press the back button and check exactly whom, so sorry to miscredit
) who explains the
position of the camera changes facial structure.. If you take two of the photos that are beside each other showing "proof", there is an OBVIOUS tilt
of the head... either he is tilting his chin up (WHILE SINGING???!!) or slightly down... His nose looks "longer" because you're seeing the
3-dimensional nose in a 2 dimensional picture... The tip of his nose makes it appear his nose continues on, same goes for the latter, where it looks
I will take myself for example... I do not have an overly large nose, however I have inherited my grandmother's more defined bohemian nose. Having
broken it a few times being a kid, it most certainly is crooked a bit on one side. When I take a picture, a slight angle of my face downward will
have me looking like the wicked witch of the west. Alternatively, when I angle it up, I appear to have a cutesy little girly nose, as well as a
smaller chin. If I take a picture with the right side of my face, my nose looks COMPLETELY different than if I take one with the left... If I take a
straight on shot and mirror those sides together to form two faces, you will certainly see two distinct people. I hate taking pictures for this
reason, I can't stand how much my face changes just from a tilt of the head.
My point is: Pictures can be reversed, pictures can be manipulated. Also, a lot of the "original photos" have most likely been mirrored for their
publishing purpose (many in books are). If you have a sharp eye, you can see that there is One Paul. I do believe that they did use this to give
themselves a mystical aura, they were all about the "art." What better to add to the art than a huge conspired backstory?? They couldn't be just any
band. They were all brilliant minds, and they took it to a legendary level. Bravo to them for giving enough "evidence" that 40+ years later there
are still die-hards..
Another note: Saw Sir Paul on his tour a few weeks ago. Absolutely amazing. How a 69 year old man can rock a crowd of 55,000 for three hours
without a break, damn...
Oh, and the teeth, retainer anyone? heehe.
