Droster Lock (Infinite Combination)

    Newer Older

    Master Lock, Escher/Droste style. I'd hate to try to pick this one...

    Created from this image of a combination padlock of mine that I'd shot earlier today (see that photo for details on the setup).

      Apparently these slimeballs are using your picture as part of their effort to market some encryption snake oil to investors. Maybe you can sue them :-)

      @erlingalf: Thanks for pointing it out. Fortunately, a flickr buddy of mine brought it to my attention. We sent them a takedown notice and they quickly complied. No need to lawyer up if we can take care of it directly.

      Still, the website is a bit silly (the "math" and "science" are deeply flawed, to say the least). And despite their pleas for investment, I don't think they're con artists. If I had to guess, the two of them seem to suffer from a psychosis known as "delusional disorder, grandiose type". The grandiose type can be a bit entertaining, but remember that these people are actually afflicted with an illness that is difficult to treat. Most are pretty harmless.
