Comment Immaculate Conception? (Score 5, Informative) 478

This is not what Immaculate Conception means. The Immaculate Conception is the conception of Mary, not of Jesus, with the idea being that Mary is conceived without original sin so as to make her a proper vessel for Jesus. Then again, since snakes don't have original sin, maybe every snake conception is immaculate.

Comment MSPaint scales selection differently (Score 1) 368

Taking the Dalai Lama picture, I get two different results from MSPaint. If I paste the image into a new file, deselect, and then scale the entire image by 50% (in each direction so to 1/4 size), I get the gray box. However, if I select all, and then scale by 50%, I get an odd magenta Dalai Lama. Any insights as to why this might be?
