Relax! NASA Says A Giant Asteroid WILL NOT Destroy The Earth This September!

Asteroid

(PCM) Conspiracy theorists were in a tizzy as internet rumors began swirling that a giant asteroid was careening towards the Earth and that we were due for a global catastrophe that could possibly end human life as we know it. NASA has now put those fears to rest letting everyone know that as far as they know the world will not be coming to an end next month as they see no asteroid in sight that would impact the Earth in that particular time frame.

In a statement NASA says “There is no scientific basis — not one shred of evidence — that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth on those dates ( between Sept. 15 and 28, 2015)”. The rumors stated that the asteroid was scheduled to make its’ impact with the Earth somewhere near Puerto Rico between Sept. 15 and 28, 2015, destroying swaths of North, Central and South America in its’ wake.

There even happens to be a Near-Earth Object office manned by NASA whose job it is to watch, track and categorize any type of asteroids or comets that happen to pass by within 300 million miles of the Earth. NASA goes on to say that not a single one of the identified objects even has a slight chance of impacting the Earth anytime within the next century.

NASA is even currently hard at work on a protection plan for Earth should a crisis with an asteroid or other celestial body come close to impact called the Asteroid Redirect Mission. They are developing a “gravity tractor” technique that would be able to divert the asteroid from coming into contact with the Earth’s surface.

So, relax everyone! NASA has it covered and we can rest assured that global dissemination will not occur next month, at least not in the form of a flying space object!

Twitter Reveals Plans To Remove 140-character Limit From Direct Messaging

Twitter

(PCM) I am sure that we have all dealt with the annoyance of Twitter’s 140-character limit especially when it comes to sending out direct messages to friends and followers. The 140-character limit is truly not enough to get your point across, so Twitter has listened to their users complaints and revealed plans to remove the 140-character limit when it comes to direct messaging.

The social media giant is now urging users to “go long” with their direct messages to friends and colleagues and according to a Twitter spokesperson users will not have the ability to chat on and on in a single direct message and most likely still have some characters left over to spare.

There will be no change made to public tweets as those will still fall under the 140-character limit. The new changes to Twitter’s direct messaging service began its’ initial roll-out today and the company says that it will take a few weeks for the changes to be consistent on all of their various platforms.

Mars Curiosity Rover Spots A Strange Figure On The Red Planet

NASAMarsCloakedWoman

(PCM) Social media is buzzing after NASA released an image that was captured by the Mars Curiosity Rover that appears to show a woman wearing some sort of cloak staring at the Rover from a distance. The post has been titled “Alien Woman on Mars Watching Rover From Hill” and has been circulating various UFO and space related websites. It certainly has a lot of people talking however many also question the validity of the image. 

Many feel that it is indeed a cloaked Martian woman watching the Rover, others feel it is a left over statue from some great society, while majority feel that it is just a piece of dirt from the planet’s surface that just so happened to take on the form of a woman. 

What do you think?  Is there life on Mars?

(PCM) Missouri high school student Brittany Nicole Creech’s senior portraits have gone viral, as they were shot at the most unlikely of places … her local area Taco Bell restaurant! 

Creech hilariously posted the set of images that show her dramatically posing at different areas in the Taco Bell including the cash register, sipping a drink and playfully laughing outside the establishment.  In a message to go along with the photos she wrote “remember when I told you guys I was gonna get my senior pictures at Taco Bell and you thought I was joking … “

Creech’s Taco Bell photo shoot which was shot by Missouri-based photographer Brendan Batchelor, has since gone viral with nearly 5,000 retweets and over 10,000 favorites after they were posted on Creech’s Twitter account. 

 

It is still up in the air as to whether or not Creech was trying to be playful with her senior pics or she really is just that big of a Taco Bell fanatic.  Her Twitter account does reveal that her dream is to one day appear in a Taco Bell commercial and after this hilarious photo session we think that there is a pretty good chance she is well on her way!

(PCM) It was truly amazing to watch the evolution of Grumpy Cat explode onto the internet and flood social media after a single meme was created using her adorable frowning face. Ever since her first appearance Grumpy Cat has held her reign as a viral sensation, but there is a new animal in town that is already conquering our news feeds with his adorably sour face.  Meet Grumpy Earl, the puggle with the face of a grumpy-looking 80 year old man!

Grumpy Earl is only five months old, but has already become quite the internet sensation, as there are already hundreds of memes featuring his gloomy little face being posted all over the place. Grumpy Earl’s owners are amazed by how quickly he has become a viral hit after only posting a single photo of him on Reddit. Despite Grumpy Earl’s sour expression, his owners say he is just as energetic and lovable as any normal puppy. He loves his snacks and enjoys chasing a ball around the house.

The vet claims that Grumpy Earl’s expression is due to his underbite, wrinkles and dark complexion and he is just as healthy as any normal puppy calling him both relaxed and actually content!

Adult Affairs Site Ashley Madison Has Been Hacked!

Ashley-Madison1

(PCM) A big ‘uh-oh’ goes out to all the cheaters of the world who make up the nearly 37 million members of adult extra-marital/committed relationship affair website AshleyMadison.com. It was revealed that the website has been hacked and those behind the cyber attack are threatening to release the private information of users if the site is not completely shut down.

Ashley Madison is well known for their company slogan which is “Life is short. Have an affair”, however it appears that the hackers are certainly looking to shorten the lifespan of the popular website. Ashley Madison is owned by a Canadian company called Avid Life Media, who claim they were made aware of an attempt by an unauthorized party to gain access to their systems. They go on to say that they have been able to secure all of their sites and close the unauthorized access points and are now working with local authorities in an attempt to discover the group behind the hack.

This is not the first time an adults only website has been compromised. Earlier this year, Adult Friend Finder was hacked and the information for more than 3.5 million users was left exposed. The group behind the Ashley Madison hack claim that they are unhappy with the company’s “full delete” service which promises to fully delete a users entire profile and all associated information for a fee of $19.  The hackers claim that even after users pay the deletion fee their information, including real names and credit information still remain on the website and that the full delete service is a scam.

According to CNN, “If Ashley Madison is not taken offline, they have threatened to ‘release customer records, including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses and employee documents and emails” leaving anyone who has ever used the site at rise of exposure.
