Are you serious? WOW ,man, I feel sorry for you. Never seen anything like that. What temperature was it outside? Maybe that has something to do with it. I definitely hope someone can chime in with an answer for you. It would benefit all us TT users.

Looks like a photoshop of Kim Kardashian. Top heavy, middle narrow, bottom wide.

:laugh1: I was trying to fix my crappy phone camera picture with lens correction, came up with that and thought it was too funny not to post. They're fine.

The man clearly said that the brown acid is not specifically too good, I don't know what more warning you needed.

If you dont think that's funny, then you can just get out of here! :lol: =D>
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Just couldn't wait til April. Here's the original image. See how the reels are all warped and goofy looking? The camera on this phone is truly terrible.

He got me for a split second but then I saw his location and realized it was distorted image. They are jdm rods so I though there was a chance he was posting from somewhere closer to the equator.
