Soybean Oil Tank

To commemorate this 150th entry into the STTLJ pareidolia database, I am adding one of the oldest instances of Jesus pareidolia that I could find a picture for (the Shroud of Turin doesn't count as it was forged). In 1986, some Ohioans saw Jesus on the side of a soybean oil tank, and hundreds of people flocked to see the image. True to modern pareidolia, no one else can see a thing.

This thing supposedly looks like Jesus.

If cameras existed 1,000 years ago, I'm sure we'd have pictures of Jesus' head in someone's grog and mutton chops, or whatever they ate 1,000 years ago.

I dunno, back before the commercialization of religion, wouldn't this have been considered worshiping false idols?

I think that depends on if they had, in addition to cameras, some kind of eBay.

That's a few miles from my house. My dad worked at the factory next door at the time. They finally painted over it to get rid of the weirdos.

I can assure you that organic food grown from aquaponics tastes as good as veggies which you grow in soil or get from a store. Aquaponics is really a combination of growing fish or aquaculture, and growing plants without soil or hydroponic.

The system will still only require the addition of very little water each week.

If you see something, this is an original image from before being painted. It was originally vandalized by a firefighter with paint balloons. The owner of the tank, Archer Daniels Midland, tried to remove the paint, but they weren't successful. So they painted the whole tank
