Being a 16 year old boy just a few years ago and knowing how their minds work... I have a hard time believing this. When I was 13 I photoshopped a
picture of a ghost in my house to fool my friends. Actually, it was MS Paint and poorly done, and it worked! No way it would have worked on ATS, since
it was a poor fake, but I got a thrill fooling my friends. Was able to convince all of them.
So, I can understand the appeal of faking out people on ATS. Not something I'd enjoy doing today, but probably a few years ago.
No, the photo wasn't photoshopped. If he wanted to fake it, there would be a far simpler explanation. We have no way of knowing his father wasn't
there on Christmas. I think it was his dad, or someone else, When the OP looked at the photo, he thought it looked creepy and decided to post it on
ATS to see how many people he could fool.
That's it. That's the explanation. The OP found a creepy looking photo of his dad while looking through his mom's pictures. Wanted to see how
gullible ATS is. No photoshopping required.
If I'm wrong OP then I apologize, but that is what makes the most sense. This thread could go on for 1000 more pages, and only the OP would truly
know whether it's real or not.
Point I'm trying to make- this thread, regardless of whether it is real or not, shows it is really easy to fool people. Why? Because ANYONE could do
this. Look through your old photographs, find one where someone is out of place in the background. Post it on ATS, and make up a story in 5 minutes.
