    Umbrella Man pic?

    Yes, but no agents on JFK's car, windows open with people hanging out, people on the balcony . . .

    VInce Palamara - Why is there a SS agent

    David, I'm trying to send you a message, the forum says you can't receive?

    Glaze Letters

    FWIW I'm with David on this. Lighting changes features. But there are too many similarities. Would be interesting to try facial recognition software.

    Ice bullets

    Agreed and agreed.

    Not that I can distinguish. If you can find one I'll recant. I'm not certain.

    Cliff, your certainty that you are correct gets in the way of your reading skills I think. I've been referring to THIS statement by you when I say that you can't see what an individual finger does. You can guess, infer . . . hypothesize.

    The vanishing pool of blood

    Fake SS in Dealy that day. Perhaps one of them.

    Certain that he's grabbing his tie. Or extending a finger. If you read my response I said I was inclined to agree with Gil's hypothesis, but that the idea you can see WITH CERTAINTY what JFK's hands, let alone individual fingers are doing is nonsense. At least in the images on this thread.

    Ice bullets

    He may indeed be grabbing at his tie, but from the blurred images how, again, can anyone be certain? We need much better resolution to talk about individual fingers. I'm inclined to agree with Gil's theory overall. I don't think there's a good understanding of when the shot occured. For JFK to be reacting AT ALL, the bullet hit him several frames earlier at 18 FPS. I would argue he's reacting at 225, and more clearly at 226. This is the very beginning of his hands moving up, but they're moving. Which makes the bullet impact several frames earlier IMO. 226:

    Cliff, as I said I may be wrong. Likely even. But look at the height of JFK's right elbow. It's at least ear height. That's not a normal position, which is why I've thought it's a reaction to the force of the back shot. I don't have time to look at earlier frames right now to make the comparison. If I have time later I will, just to illustrate what I see.

    Ice bullets

    No one can be certain of anything being discussed in this thread. No certainty. Having said that, the frame pictured always seemed to me to be the back shot. Hands were coming up, back shot impacts, elbows raise. I'm not certain of that of course. Best guess.

    That looks like pure sheep dipping.

    The shot to TIPPIT's head

    Thanks for posting Mr. Griffin! So you were on site of the Tippit murder?

    More from the past on BYP

    I knew you'd have visuals to show what I was trying to illustrate. Wish I had photoshop at work. Thanks David.

    More from the past on BYP

    Which my photo supports John. The BYP shadows should behave in a similar fashion to my example, and they don't.

    Your point is moot. The BYP has nothing aligned. My photo of the sculpture has shadows cast by vertical objects at similar proximity to each other. It's a valid comparison.

    I guess so Ray. Nonetheless, for those thinking critically, IMO looking at that photo as comparison, you can see the convergence AND see that something is off in the BYP.

    Front view, seems pretty damn uniform and as illustrated in first photo, has rows:

    More from the past on BYP

    I must admit I simply don't understand John's reaction to the above photo. I took it for comparison because we have multiple vertical objects in a close area. If you lay a straight edge on the shadows you can see them converge as Ray has argued here, but much more subtle and consistent manner, IMO, than what is happening in the BYP. With respect to John's concerns, I walked into this area to take the photo:

    Seriously? I'll photograph it from another angle so you can understand, but damn man, that's some serious paranoia. And it's raining here today so there will be no shadows unfortunately.

    Just for comparison, I photographed a sculputure by Abakanowicz here at my museum. These figures are all the same, aligned in rows. You can see the shadow convergence, but it is uniform across the field of vision.

    Stephan Weiss [The 112th M/I Group]

    That is fascinating. He lost his nerve and wouldn't talk further. Wonder if he's still alive.

    Alternative Assassins (names)

    "One of the strangest, but probably most inevitable, pop culture offshoots to come directly from Close Encounters of the Third Kind was the rumor that, because of the secrecy under which the film was shot, it was being financed by the government as part of the training needed to prepare humans for an actual alien landing. In fact, NASA and the Air Force refused to cooperate with the production, fearing it would spread panic about UFOs just as Spielberg's Jaws had caused an inordinate amount of public anxiety about "killer" sharks. Spielberg said his faith in the possibility of UFOs was boosted when he received a 20-page letter from NASA stating their opposition to the film: "I knew there must be something happening." The rumor about the government's sponsorship of the film persisted and grew when Spielberg released E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). In fact, a story circulated that when the director screened the film at the White House, President Ronald Reagan confided to him, "You know, there are fewer than six people in this room who know the real story."" http://www.tcm.com/this-month/article/467315|0/Close-Encounters-of-the-Third-Kind.html

    Possible photo of E. H. Hunt in Dealey Plaza

    No thoughts here? Left of bus, white pants, blazer, white shirt collar, hands in pockets . . . You can almost hear him whistling.
