Zeon Santos's Comments

And I forgot to mention that she also accepts fan submissions, like the last image of an ice cream cone from Malta, taken by @heyhanny who actually lives in Malta. Here's the link:

But the 20+ people who submitted their photos, the people whose Instagram account names are included with each pic and easily verified with a simple search, they're probably all submitting fake photos too, right?

Look, no matter how you meant it claiming something is a fake in this way is just a cry for attention. If you think photos are suspect good for you, but most people just think to themselves "that's a fake" and move on, knowing that leaving a comment is just a way to get people to pay attention to them online and not really going to accomplish anything. I certainly don't care whether you think they're fake or not, nor does Melissa from Girl Eat World or anybody else for that matter, so why leave a comment?

You have issues with the way hand and background look together? The flash from the smartphone hits the hand to lighten it up and make it match the background better, and she has probably applied one of the many Instagram filters to her photos to perfect the look.

Different hand in one photo? That's because she travels with friends, so it may be one of their hands, and Melissa is far more tan at certain points in her travels, which you would know if you actually looked at her site before crying "fake".

But the question remains- why would someone fake something like this? What is she hoping to accomplish by faking it? Her website gets plenty of views without these Instagram photos, so why bother faking it when you've actually traveled to all of these places?

And what is your supposed debunking actually going to accomplish besides making you feel better about yourself? All I'm saying is crying fake without any concrete proof is exactly the same thing the attention seeking Moon Landing deniers are doing, only at this point they've offered up more proof than you have.

People who constantly claim images are fake or Photoshopped are one of my biggest pet peeves as a blogger. What are you hoping to accomplish by making these claims? If you simply follow the link to her website or any of her other social media accounts you'll see tons of photos clearly taken during her travels, proving she really went to all the places featured in her Girl Eat World series. So why cry Photoshop when you don't know for sure? All this claim does is make you look like one of those people who think we never landed on the moon or that 9/11 never happened. Do some homework before you go around saying everything is fake!

People often make up stories so they have an excuse to post something online, welcome to the internet. And the original poster on Imgur is the one who said he'd never noticed the NSFW image before, but that doesn't mean the rest of the firehouse weren't well aware of the hidden image.

I have no idea how such a thing would show up at all in this article, and I just double checked everything including all html and don't see anything related to porn links in the article. But if the problem persists please let me know Michael!

So are you saying these videos are fake?

Also, are you advertising that martial arts school? Just wondering what that has to do with your comment.

I think the proof is in the videos, and since there are a bunch of real videos on YouTube of people cutting down trees with a katana that point really can't be argued.

The steel pipe in the second video isn't exactly a machine gun barrel, but it seems close enough to me to validate what I said in the article.

via- http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Trope

Above all, a trope is a convention. It can be a plot trick, a setup, a narrative structure, a character type, a linguistic idiom... you know it when you see it. Tropes are not inherently disruptive to a story; however, when the trope itself becomes intrusive, distracting the viewer rather than serving as shorthand, it has become a cliché.

Note that currently the Oxford English Dictionary actually recognizes the definition "a significant or recurrent theme; a motif", its earliest quotation for this meaning being from 1975. Merriam-Webster also somewhat recognizes this meaning, but twists it into "a common or overused theme or device: cliché", which seems unjustly condemning.

The next time you're looking for a place to talk trash and pick a fight via comment look somewhere else Travino, I really don't appreciate your snarky attitude.

I felt the same way PlaysWithWolves, Adventure was the secret level that started them all and they could have at least gave it props for being the first game with a secret level. But I think the article was aimed at those who were born well after the Atari console came out (Millennials) because their choices are pretty much all 90s and beyond.

I know but I figured people would understand I was speaking colloquially when I used "snuck" in conjunction with "stuff". And just so you know grammar nazis are wholeheartedly despised by those of us who write for the internet, but I'll give you a pass this time SparkS!

I swapped it out for another version from YouTube, maybe this one won't have the stupid restrictions? I absolutely hate that they try to block videos from being viewed in certain countries, so if you ever find a video not working for you lemme know and I'll try to swap it out!

Congratulations Miss C, I hope the next decade of sharing your wonderful mind with the world is as good as the first! You've been a mentor and friend to me many times here on Neatorama and I'll never forget all the help you've given me over the years. Happy blogiversary, and keep on writin'!

And you could have saved yourself two minutes of research, and all this typing, by simply keeping your nitpicking to yourself. Be productive, don' t just go around looking for any little thing you can find wrong with our posts. There's nothing worse than a reader coming along and "correcting" us for no good reason, I write lots of articles and don't really need someone playing editor when it's not warranted. Some of the pics are selfies, some aren't, who cares? Nobody but you, Chay, nobody but you.

So you're a nitpicker? And that makes it better somehow? You should really get a life and stop leaving pointless comments on blogs. I don't think anyone else had a problem with what I wrote, it seems like you just wanted to pick a fight. Selfies, portraits, pictures, who cares? It's a silly article about a funny comedian chick who redid celeb pics, and I guarantee all of hers were selfies, which is what I thought you were referring to with your comment. Please refrain from leaving comments on my posts in the future unless they're productive, nitpicking or singling out one thing I've written is not productive.
