Submission + - Obama's birth certificate's layers->

surveyork writes: Bryan Preston explains why Obama's long-form birth certificate is divided in layers: The software that scanned the document did it automatically http://pajamasmedia.com/tatler/2011/04/27/yes-its-true-the-birth-certificate-is-built-in-layers-and-theres-an-explanation/ . A commenter also points to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_raster_content for more info (the PDF linked from Wikipedia has the nitty-gritty details).

As Obama said, it doesn't matter what documents he produces, some people will never be satisfied http://bit.ly/jeWjlt . Donald Trump said that he hopes the cert is authentic, but he'll look at it carefully. Anyways, Trump is already questioning Obama's Ivy League education http://www.nationaljournal.com/dailyfray/trump-how-did-obama-ever-get-into-the-ivy-league--20110426 . I guess the birthers will have a field day (months?) finding estrange-looking pixels, shadows, smears, blotches, edits, coded messages, and whatnot http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/27/birthers-still-have-quest_n_854591.html
