    Most of these pictures were obviously taken at Burning Man The place could warrant an entire section due to the wild and weird things which appear commonplace there.

    This is deifinitely a kite…you can see the strings, and the people in the photographs are either:

    Pic 1) Posing in that spot because that kite is there.

    Pic 2) Pointing their fingers at the kite.

    Pic 3) Laying there because of the kite and looking up and smiling at it.

    Pic 4) Pretending to try to grab it.

    Anyone who can’t see how obvious this is, you’re not being perceptive.

  17. Evey says:

    if you open each picture and look at them closely, you can actually see the strings in EVERY one. To be honest, I was disappointed to realize it was just a kite.

    I’m thinking that these things are stickers to put on your camera lens.

    I absolutely love this kite. I was a burningman this year )’( and the owner was pointing at me and another guy as we were having a martial arts fight at sunset. Sadly i did not get any of the pictures to share. :(
    But, for the sake of the article, this is a kite and nota google feature. The girl in the last photo is pointing to it!

  21. kiean says:

    does anyone other than Wendel know the meaning of sarcasm? Jesus christ, are you all five years old?

  24. Kirsty says:

    This is DEFINITELY a kite because of 3 reasons:

    1) mouse cursors are white not black

    2) mouse cursors point up not down

    3) how obvious are the strings!

    Whoever it was that told you this is not a kite is a total doofus.

  25. smileyface says:

    i agree with kirsty. and its obviously a kite. this is not even an optical illusion

  26. j says:

    sarcasm is great, Wendel at least you get

  27. Kelli says:

    My cursor is black. Don’t make me play the race card…

  28. likalaruku says:

    That’s cute & hilarious. It reminds me of FlyingThingZ “Flying Lawnmower.”

  29. josephine says:

  30. Woodcrow says:

    ALERT ALERT!!! INAPPROPRIATE PICTTURE, 3RD ONE POINTING AT THE JUNGLE OF ?????

  31. someone says:

    it is obvious, it is a kite, maybe at the first 2 pictures u couldn´t see lines, but look carefully at picture number 3, u can see that it is kinda transparent, it has lines and it has little white drops where the string is attached

  32. Simon says:

    thats totally a kite u can c the lines and in the 2nd pic u can c the guy holding it

  33. U Guys says:

    Hey nimrods, you are all wrong. Do any of you indoor geeks know what happens outside of your cubicle or how to fly a real kite? I don’t mean a single line box kite from Wal-Mart for 5.95. This is Obviously a Quad Line 2 handle kite, not some virtual paint shop job, duh…

  34. Andrea says:

    If it is a kite, which I think it is, I really want one! :D

  35. astro says:

    get a life people and look at real life

  36. babydoll says:

    All but the last two were definitely taken out at Black Rock City. These kites are amazing! I was gifted a kite from the camp that has & makes these, a camp full of professional kite flyers. They have some CRAZY kites, this one included and some of the things they can do with the stunt kites, WOW!

  37. Valente says:

    Hehe, they going to all get double clicked lol!

  38. speak your mind says:

  39. really says:

  40. sherrill says:

    Kite or not….they are a waste of my time…

  41. PLAY NICE CHILDREN says:

    Can anyone explain to me why it is necessary to badmouth or negatively reply? “get a life people”… “Hey nimrods, you are all wrong. Do any of you indoor geeks know what happens outside of your cubicle or how to fly a real kite? I don’t mean a single line box kite from Wal-Mart for 5.95. This is Obviously a Quad Line 2 handle kite, not some virtual paint shop job, duh…”…”Whas’s wrong with you guys”…

  46. Karimar says:

    Hey People , its a kite In the first picture u can see the shadow of the kite right infront of the women posing !! Cool HUH

    • Retard says:

      Lmao… fail, you know you can stick a shadow into the picture much easier than you can photoshop the mouse in

  47. speller says:

    learn how to spell..you’re an embarrassment

  48. Ben says:

    no you’re wrong, that’s a photoshop shadow of the cursor… Douchbag.

  49. KLONDOW says:

    NO,IT SEEM TO ME IT IS NOT TRUE BECOUSE ASS HOLE IN THER

  50. goldpinky says:

    if you look real close you can see the strings.

  51. rob says:

    well, I don’t know, but they all seem to be perfectly facing the camera in all of the photos

    • Kirk says:

      of course they’re all facing the camera, these aren’t candid shots, they were planned out and the photographer picked the right angle for the picture

  52. lama cat says:

    in tha second pic if u follow tha string to tha guy, it is a kite

  53. w says:

    People who immediately say things are fake are annoying

  54. fossda says:

    you spelt red wrong even though your an adult and it obvious that it is a kite, as you can see the strings. not an illusion at all. should be taken off the site.

  55. emagrecer says:

    you can definitely see the strings.

  56. Abzz says:

    In the third picture you could see the strings on the right hand side of the cursor, try zooming in the picture if you still cant see it!!!!

  57. fammallama says:

    fossda you spelled “spelled” wrong…….dumbass

  58. Dave Sarcasticon says:

    “Spelt” is only ok, only if you are from West Virginia, or your name is Steve!

  59. SomeoneSpecial says:

    I have one more clue! look more carefull and you will see people who is controling kite! (2nd picture)
