Imagine what happens if the linked image becomes unavailable. Then the OP it's just a contextless phrase, and new posters wouldn't understand what the thread it's about. A simple paragraph explaining what happens in the picture would sufficed. The problem wasn't content. It was form.
It started with the Spice Girls but really got trendy with Tim Minchin, and hasn't stopped since; it just keeps popping up, and if you get the "dyed" color wrong, you will be corrected, pronto, "No, I'm a ginger!"
If there were young teen girls trying to figure out makeup and such, got subscriptions to Glamour magazine, I'd just think, "Oh, I've been through that" but these are women in their late 20s, 30s, 40s... And some men, too.
Glad I didn't offend. Sometimes I just can't take the "flesh is where it's at" mentality. It bores me, mainly.
But some days, post after post, I want to just let my fingers fly, and point out some "facts" about the photos, and the photo-monging.
Self-discipline. I got more than some imagine I do.
You seriously can't study the photo and tell her hair is dyed? She's slightly, going by complexion and eye brows, which may also be dyed, "possibly" in real life, a light brown with very little red low lights. Imma gonna learn you all facts about "alterations", whether you want the facts or now. Of course I'll only do it in bits and pieces, and mostly in my Notebook aka blog space, so you can just ignore me as it many persons' wont. Hell, I have to ignore myself, quite often. And to make up for that, I just improv someone else--but not in how I look. I do it my writing "style" or "characterization."
That seems to happen a lot. Most of the international couples I know end up speaking only one language or the other. Recently my wife and I have implemented an 'English day' once a week, partly so our hypothetical child could have a bilingual advantage.
