Jesus Christ Appears on a Piece of Sheet Metal

 

MANCHESTER, Conn.- Thomas Haley was working at his job at Hardy's Hardware when he noticed an image in a piece of sheet metal. A blurry oil stain on the sheet metal began to take form and Haley recognized the picture right away. It was Jesus Christ.

"I mean, it hasn't done anything miraculous as of yet, but seeing it is kind of groovy," said Haley, 23. "Just seeing it brightens people's day." He and his friend plan to sell the "miracle" on eBay. The 'buy it now' price is $10,000.

"Some people said, 'Are you sure it's Jesus?' and I think, 'Who else would come to give us a sign, Groucho Marx?' " co-worker Jonathan Jackson said. "I think it's a good thing. Maybe it's trying to give some people hope."

  Hang on  
 
Dont we have no real idea what jesus looked like? So all these 'images' are just pure speculation, apart from superstition. Think about it, your gods son, all powerful, and you put your image on a piece of oily sheetmetal? More like you would make a underwater mountain range in your image, or make a siloette of yourself appear above every christian based church. That would be a mericle and make people believe. Not this crud.

  hmm  
 
whoever buys this is a total dumbass, and is getting royally screwed.

i think Jesus has better things to do than appear on a damn sheet metal
 
  by: groomsy     02/27/2006 03:18 AM     
  Picture?  
 
Is there a pic anywhere? This guy may be an entrapranueral artist and wants $10,000 for his blurry oiling.

Why put a buy it now limit at $10,000? There should be no buy it now price. About a month ago a local pawn shop recently auctioned off a lugar that "may have been owned by Hitler" for several hundred thousand dollars. This guy doesn't seem to know how much wealthy spendthrifts will pay for these things.

that could be anybody, if you ask me that looks more like bigfoot than Jesus Christ. He just wants it to be Jesus so he can flogg it on ebay.

  my expert opinion  
 
after looking hard and close at that photo, it
resembles...

none other than current wrestler Triple H!


hahahahaha @ this crap this man is selling. Like the
virgin mary toast or whatever...people are always on
the comeup.

Probably did a transparent print of a man image,
and put it on the sheet
 
  by: hotrock11     02/27/2006 04:35 AM     
  I think it looks more like...  
 
Jim Morrison come back from the grave to haunt a piece of metal.

"Probably did a transparent print of a man image, and put it on the sheet"

I think you're probably right. Either that or somehow the image of the worker making the metal was flashed onto the sheet.

It's Him. It's really Him!!

  i just have one question...  
 
What 23 year old says "groovy." I'm 25 and I don't think I've heard any of my friends say that except when quoting Austin Powers.
 
  by: testeng     02/27/2006 06:16 AM     
  LOL  
 
No kidding. Maybe he's trying to appeal to the older buyers.
 
  by: banshee9898     02/27/2006 07:07 AM     
  @groomsy  
 
But he "felt chills" when he held it...

It MUST be divine...I mean...isn't it obvious?!

/sarcasm

On a side note...what if he doesn't give a damn about Jesus, and is just using this to make a quick buck? Pretty smart if you ask me...mean and deceptive, but still clever. It's sad that we live in an age where this is possible...

  stupid stuff on ebay  
 
remember a couple of weeks ago, someone sold a hot dog from a Seahawks game. Another was a jar of air bottled at a Redskins game... I think they both went for a couple thousand dollars. And then we had the soul from a whale....how much did that sell for???

--the people who buy this crap must be some of the dumbest rich people on earth....hmmm..what cheap piece of junk can i sell for 5K????

i'm gonna goto a bears game this year and grab a turd out of the toilet and put it in a bottle and say its a turd from Urlacher and sell it on ebay
 
  by: groomsy     02/27/2006 10:47 PM     
  Im curious..  
 
what is wrong with the human condition that they want to see images of their savior in mundane objects?

If they really belive that supernatural entities have the power to manifest their images on household goods, how do they know it is not Lucifer peeking through reality at them?

False idols and the such, misleading the masses...

 
  by: Dedolito     02/27/2006 11:05 PM     
  Haha...  
 
...I love the irony of someone calling himself 'jediman' joking about someone being a virgin. Priceless.

Sorry man, just had to point it out ;)
 
  by: jameswaring2000   02/27/2006 11:16 PM     
  Also...  
 
...I don't know whether anyone's seen it, but this really reminds me of the episode of Father Ted where Dougle paints the image of Jesus in the skirting board
 
  by: jameswaring2000   02/27/2006 11:17 PM     
  enough of this crap  
 
ever since the piece of toast...

the most ridiculous one i've seen so far is a water-stained xbox360 box (just the box) that sold for hundreds of dollars on ebay.
 
  by: moon118   02/28/2006 01:11 AM     
  @moon118  
 
The box??? I didn't see that one but if that is true that tells me one thing.. some people of too much "Bloody" money. What do I need to do to get enough money to waste on stuff like that.
 
  by: testeng     02/28/2006 02:40 PM     
  I think it'd be cooler  
 
If it WAS Jim Morrisson.

know where to start in saying how fu*king stupid that is.

  faical recognition  
 
is very powerful in humans. We see faces in everything. :) How else can you explain the smiley face? It is just 2 dots and a curve, yet you see a smiling face on the side.

Remember the man in the moon? The face on mars?
 
  by: jendres     03/02/2006 03:08 AM     
  Give me a break  
 
All these images that appear on are just cons.

I'm not bible person but didn't one of the commandments say no graven images or recreations of him?

I've seen the sheet metal and I can say it looks like the devil, do I know what he looks like...no as much as people don't know what Jesus looks like.

Give some people hope??? Yeah I'm sure the kids in Africa, Middle East who see war, aids etc are gunning for this auction to become a bonanza of hope and miracles.

Puh I spit in your generally direction.
 
  by: Mr-Anderson   03/04/2006 03:06 AM     
  LOL  
 
It's already at $1,025.00 with 4 days and 22 hours to go! He took the buy it now off too (smart move).
 
  by: banshee9898     03/04/2006 03:10 AM     
  1k??!!!  
 
You mean someone stands to make 1K (4 day left) and
all he probably did was use an iron transfer...?

next jesus thing you see on ebay will probably be from
me! It's going to be my intel imac box, w/Jesus
plastered on it
 
  by: hotrock11     03/04/2006 03:23 AM     
  @testeng-- And your point is...what exactly?  
 
i just have one question...
What 23 year old says "groovy." I'm 25 and I don't think I've heard any of my friends say that except when quoting Austin Powers.
by: testeng
----------------------------------------

Wow, so if a person is of a certain age, they cannot use, or be expected to use, certain slang descriptions or exclamations?... Especially if your particular friends don't use it? I'm not 23 years old, but I use it occassionally. I also used it occassionally when I WAS 23 years old. What, exactly is your point? Why is this somehow so unusual or astonishing to you? Is the word somehow unnacceptable to you? Are you trying to imply something...?

Perhaps he should have used another expression/slang word, because he IS after all, 23, and since your friends don't use the word, then there is OBVIOUSLY something dastardly wrong with him having used it!

What word/expression should he have used instead then? "Sweeeeeet"? or- "That's sooo siiick!" or- "Yo- Godly One on metal! Fo' schizzle, mah nizzle!!!", or some other saying that you, personally would accept or authorize the usage of? If so- what would YOUR expression be? Do tell.

It appears to me as if you are hedging around a statement, without really making it. That statement/implication being- If a person uses the word "groovy", ESPECIALLY at a certain age-- saaay- 23, then that person is not so (dare I use the term, "cool"), AND/OR the particular person's (insinuated lack of) intelligence/maturity (perhaps?) is in question, at least, according to you...

Gee, listen up everybody! From now on, everyone in the world must ONLY use "testeng pre-authorized" slang words/terms or exclamations from now on!
Or, maybe the actual article should be re-worded to suit testeng. How about this:

Thomas Haley: "I mean, it hasn't done anything miraculous as of yet, but seeing it is *_insert testeng approved slang/term here_," said Haley, 23.

...instead.

You might feel I'm being exeedingly harsh about your post, but honestly- it does give (at least myself) the impression that you are being pompous, and seeming to insinuate usage of certain, less frequently used slang that is not (in your view?) currently "popular", SOMEHOW automatically equates to the specific user's level of intelligence?

I, personally, won't "beat around the bush" about it though. Your post is pointless (and annoying). As far as Thomas Haley goes- in my opinion, he's a clown. But NOT because he used the slang word "groovy". Rather, simply because he is a stupid-ass clown (and a greedy one at that), directly BECAUSE of his greed. I also think anyone who would even consider purchasing the "item" to be very foolish, and not too intelligent. However, if it makes them happy to do so, whatever, enjoy... I also feel that the company "eBay" is foolish for even considering or allowing these ridiculous, so called "commodities/items" to even be listed or considered valid in the first place. But that's greed,commercialism,capitalism, and freedom of stupidity all rolled into one for you...

I don't feel Thomas Haley is a stupid, greedy, jackass because he used the word "groovy", but rather because of his actions alone.
If you were to say, "testeng", that you weren't implying or insinuating anything of that nature about him (low intelligence or maturity level,etc. based on 1 word- "groovy"), then I'd have to say I honestly wouldn't believe you. I don't particularily take to (enjoy) certain descriptive slang terms either, and find them annoying, but I don't go off making assumptions on another person's "coolness","hipness","fo' schizzle sickness", maturity,OR intelligence based upon the word used (unless it's obviously derrogatory or ignorant).

All the above being stated, I say to you, "testeng": GROOVY! GROOVY!! GROOVY!! Woooooord, DAWG!!!!

Noted POPULAR characters of "Grooviness": 1.) "Ash" of the "Evil Dead" series. 2.) "Shaggy" of the "Scooby Doo" series. (Maybe we should ban the movies and airings of the films, because they use the word "groovy" in them, and said word is just not popular/hip right now...) 3.) Yes, "Austin Powers" series. Which WAS fairly recent, AND popular, no?

On a ("groovy") related note:

Odd, how a majority of the current western generation seemingly thinks the most "cool" and "now" thing/expression(s) of their generation is to unashamedly plagerize almost everything from 1965ish-1975ish, and try to pass it off as "original" (to their generation). Yes... what has it most commonly been referred to as?... hmm, oh yes- "Retro" -LMFAO!!! Sorry, afraid not. Wearing bellbottoms+big belts/boots+mismatched clothing colours (sorry- already done to death, "Alice Cooper" band (and others) circa 1967...), "dance" music (sorry, been done before- and it's called "Disco"), "re-making" every popular (old) movie under the sun,etc.etc,etc... Afraid not. That's not called "Retro". THAT should accurately be called "Regurge(itation)", esp
 
  by: BACONHEDD   03/05/2006 12:55 AM     
  @testeng-- Continued  
 
THAT should accurately be called "Regurge(itation)", especially since IF it was indeed "Retro", -there would be a whole hell of a lot more hard rock bands being given airplay, and copied right now. But they aren't. Instead, we mostly just get bombarded with disco (oops, I mean "rap/dance").

Eh, big rant, I know. But foolish posts like that annoy me. I think you're being very judgemental, and tremendously ungroovy, "testeng". Excuse me, while I go listen to my new "hip-hop-dance-euro-techno-drums 'n bass-house-acid-house-jazz-fusion-old-school-
flip-flop-trip-hop,........" What?!... oh, I didn't realize, sorry. That's sooo last month (great rolling of eyes).

And, in conclusion, "ppppbbbllllltttt".
