Claim: Photograph shows a bathroom with an unusually painted floor.
Examples: [Collected via e-mail, 2005]
Origins: The image shown above may qualify as a genuine artwork, but not of the type claimed (i.e., a bathroom with its floor painted to make it appear open to the sky from thousands of feet in the air). It's another entry from a Worth1000.com contest, this one asking participants to creatively manipulate a photograph of an ordinary bathroom. The "falling man" entry has proved to be an especially popular one, and the image has been forwarded around the Internet with its contextual information removed and misleading comments added by some of its forwarders.
