#8 Footprints Are Carved Into The Floorboards By Monk Who Has Prayed At The Same Spot For 20 Years

Footprints Are Carved Into The Floorboards By Monk Who Has Prayed At The Same Spot For 20 Years

Wood doesn't work that way. It would only be worn down if the monk hat moved a lot over that place, but he didn't . Just standing on wood wouldn't make dents - it might lower a section, but not carve out footprints. Especially not the toes! there's no weight on a toe, how would it indent so far down that you would spot the individual ones? Sorry- I call "fake" for this.
