Jesus is watching you pee.

I've recently been sifting through years of digital photographs in preparation for a mass upload to Flickr. I'm tired of managing my own photo sets on planetdan and Flickr is apparently willing to host and organize twenty gigabytes worth of images for only $25 a year. In the process, I've come across some interesting photos, such as this one, where I managed to expertly ruin what would most likely have been a perfectly precious memory with some well-timed photo snipery:

But it was this photograph that startled me the most:

Taken from an awkward overhead angle, my eyeballs must be mid-blink, because I still can't decide if they are opened or closed. And the more I stare at the picture to puzzle it out, the more I want call an exorcist.

My repulsion to this picture is probably due to the fact that my mother had an awful painting of Jesus' disembodied floating head that she hung in the bathroom hallway, directly opposite my bedroom door, during my entire adolescence. It was titled "Veronica's Handkerchief" by Gabriel Max, and if you stared at it long enough, Jesus would open his eyes and look at you, shamingly:

You can see a larger version of it here to get the full effect, but I don't think I recommend it. Or at least 12-year-old danny - waking up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom - doesn't.

That is THE most frightening thing I've ever seen. Think she was trying to discourage you from jerking off? JESUS IS WATCHING YOU! BUT ONLY SOMETIMES AND YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN!!
