triangle+scar+left+arm searched on-line


Close up of a tiny set of three dots on my left arm. This curious scar has been there since I was in elementary school and it's faded in a way that the lower left dot is barely visible anymore..

There is a curious statistic on my side-bar. If you scroll down and look at the application titled MOST READ POSTS ON THIS SITE, EVER. The majority are audio interviews with popular authors, but there is one that seems out of place. It’s a post I did last summer titled: Tiny dots on my left arm. (linked HERE)

Why is that post so popular? It’s baffled me, until this morning.

I just recently looked at my stat-counter and found where I could check “Keyword Analysis” and found that the fourth most common way people arrive at my site is by searching out this phrase: “triangle scar left arm”

The implication is that people (from around the world) are using google as a tool to search out an answer about triangle scars on their left arms. Since last summer I’ve received a handful of comments (and emails) where people will say that they have the exact same scar, or something very similar.

The fact that this somewhat obscure post is so popular seems to indicate that there is a very pattern of people out there with odd triangle scars on their left arms, and they are seeking answers. The implications of this is extremely curious, at least to me.

A photoshop recreation that matches the memory form my youth. This shows the curious symmetry and definition of the dots. 3/8 of an in is pretty much 1 centimeter.

What if you asked people to send you photos of their scars, and you post them on the blog?

I thought I had found the answer to something that has bothered me for 20 years when I saw your post, but it's not quite the same as what I have.
This is going to sound like the rant of a mad man, but in the 1980's when I was 7 or 8 I had a strange experience one night when I went to bed. It seemed like all I did was blink and it was morning. It wasn't like those nights where you feel you've had hardly any sleep... it literally just felt like a blink. I instantly noticed 3 red spots on my left arm. They weren't in a triangle, but they were in a perfectly straight line and exactly the same distance apart. In a matter of days they turned into tiny 'craters' like your scars have and are still fairly visible today. It has always confused me more because of the 'blinking' experience combined with the dots rather than just the dots themselves.

I have the same exact scar on my right arm, inside of wrist. I remember having it in elementary school because I lied and told everyone it was from a snake bite. Can't be from an IV bc I never had one before adolescence.. never thought much about it, assuming it was from a vaccine, until I asked my mom recently and she seemed alarmed. she claims its definitely not from a vaccine. Hope this helps! I'm very intrigued with everyone's stories. This is kind of strange?

I have this very same mark but on my left side (ribs) on the other side I've got freckles in the same shape. My right eye also has it. I've always had them. Always noticed the scar. I want to know why. Something in my gut tells me its something big. And I'm all sorts of marked up with the symbol.
