Here is the image in question:


I have seen some pretty fat people before, but this guy looks more like he is pregnant with 12 babies in there! His stomach isn't sagging or anything.... it seems like a fake to me, what do you think?

Edit: Oh, and the bar across his eyes is sure to keep anyone from knowing who he is. lol

I've seen people with guts like that in real life. Disturbing, but possible.

If he gets any publicity he should take the money and have that looked at.

I mean his belly button is soooo weird-looking... i don't quite think it's real.
And the straps of his pants... if his belly were like real they'd not look like that on the pic... that's cheap photoshop...

That is a nice photoshopped image. As Carla V. says, what gives the image away is the belly button.

Notice how the suspenders are compressing the fat on the sides, forcing it to bulge forward. I say its real.

Blech. Just because you found the image, it didn't mean that you needed to post it.

You might as well give something productive to the forum and talk about the picture. If you don't have an eye for images, you don't need to hide it behind lame critique.

Well, judging by the nick's posts, I'd say it's a slightly downgraded version of Dakar.

However, after the last post (above), I'm not so sure anymore...

Obviously not, at least most people are not here to act like crying babies. It's a forum you're in, we talk, not whine around. If you want to do that though, I'd suggest you do to your bed and grab a pillow
While he does that, can anyone focus on the topic and offer a decent opinion on the photos?

Well, let the guessing begin what long-timer decided to give a cameo stint as Carla V.

To me, it sounds Besson-ish.

T, Carla V. is just my name, the V is my initial, that's my last name, just that. I'm a girl btw, so that rules Dakar out doesn't it?

Guys all these new members look legit from the mod side of the house so I'm not getting any cameo vibes at the moment.

I bet my turtle's dried shrimps that Carla is a veteran 'NN member.

No girls just come out of the blue, start posting in the Lounge, and talk to longstanding members in that way. Carla is definitely phony.

The fact that i'm confident and smart enough doesn't mean I'm a veteran. But thanks for the flattering comment

If you are real, awesome. We need more women like that around.

I just judged by my past experience around here, you'd be a very rare breed.

Maybe you could bet your turtle's dried shrimps on that, they might be a better bargain

Nah, you can have my turtle's dried shrimp.

He recently decided to stop eating shrimp. Now he's all on food sticks.
So I have a whole container of shrimp left over.
