Sorority Sisters Called Out For Snapping Selfies During Arizona Diamondbacks Game


(PCM) We are sure that many of us do not realize quite how ridiculous we look when we are attempting to strike a pose in order to capture the perfect selfie. A group of sorority sister who were attending a recent Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game learned the hard way that you never know just who could be watching.

The girls were called out and ridiculed by the baseball game announcers once they took notice to the sheer amount of selfies the girls were snapping. A video was then posted on the Arizona Diamondbacks Facebook page and it quickly went viral.

Many found the clip to be harmless and funny, while others felt that the girls suffered unnecessary ridicule. We found it to be a true testament as to just how addicted the younger generation is to their phones and further cements the fact that sometimes we all need to just unplug and go out and enjoy life and actual human interaction every once in awhile (and the commentary for the announcers is pretty spot-on)

Due to the media frenzy over the baseball selfies the Arizona Diamondbacks and FOX Sports offered the sorority free tickets to an upcoming game, however they politely declined the offer and instead requested that the tickets be donated to a charity organization named A New Leaf which focuses on assisting families who are the victims of domestic violence.

Extreme Phone Pinching Is The Newest Social Media Trend


(PCM) We can’t help but get nervous just watching the videos of people partaking in the newest social media trend which is extreme phone pinching. The object is to loosely pinch your smartphone with two fingers and dangle it over ridiculously dangerous drops such as hotel balconies, sewer grates, elevator shafts etc.

The trend was first initiated by indie rock band Twenty One Pilots when they posted a series of Vine videos that showcased them using the extreme phone pinching technique in a slew of precarious situations. As attached as everyone is to their smartphones we have no idea why anyone would want to take the risk of possibly losing it forever and having to pay expensive repair bills to get them fixed, but we supposed the adrenaline rush is worth it for some.

Check out the compilation video below which is sure to put your nerves on edge! Currently, videos and photos are popping up all over social media with people showcasing their extreme phone pinching feats.

Gotta Love Karma! Woman Yells At A Black Bear Snacking On Her Kayak


(PCM) We probably laughed at this video a little more than we should have, in fact, we even had to watch it twice!  It just proves why you cannot mess with mother nature or interfere with the animal kingdom, as karma certainly has a way of turning itself around.

Just listening to this poor woman continuously yelling “Stop Bear”, as if the bear will somehow turn around and respond is hilarious to those of us with a twisted sense of humor. The woman even attempts to reason with the bear while it is making a snack out of her kayak saying “It’s not even food. It doesn’t even taste good”! The woman’s identity has not yet been officially revealed and all that we know is that she is from somewhere in Southeast Alaska, but she is quickly becoming a viral superstar.  The video has been viewed nearly 800,000 times!

Something tells us “Bear don’t eat my kayak” is going to be a new catchphrase throughout the rest of this year. And taking a page right out of the Honey Badger handbook, bear doesn’t give a sh*t! Sorry about your luck lady … maybe next time you will think twice before busting out the pepper spray.

Facebook Privacy Hoax Surfaces Yet Again!


(PCM) Please everyone, stop posting that silly legal notice about protecting your privacy on Facebook. It is a hoax and it is the very same hoax that has been circulating around the internet for several years! There is certainly nothing wrong with being concerned about your privacy on Facebook and other social networking sites, however posting a proven to be fake legal status does not change any of the terms that you agreed to when you first opened your account.

The hoax that is making the rounds now claims that Facebook will begin charging $5.99 per month and requests that users update their status with the following statement:

As of [insert date and time], I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or posts, both past and future. By this statement, I give notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this profile and/or its contents. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute). NOTE: Facebook is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE. You MUST copy and paste

Once again, this hoax has been debunked by and they claim that Facebook users do indeed still own the rights to all of their intellectual property, however Facebook’s terms of service that you agree to when signing up,give them permission to use what you post, so long as the posting is public. There you have it everyone!

Online Photo Debate: Is She Underwater Or Just Jumping In?


(PCM) We can all recall the infamous online debate about #TheDress!  Was it blue and black or white and gold? Currently, there is yet another photo debate taking place online about whether or not the image of a young girl in the pool features her under the water or just jumping in.

The photo was posted on the photo sharing site Imgur and then shared on Reddit where the debate began! The photo now has millions of views and tons of comments with individuals sharing their opinions as to what the photo actually portrays.

Because of the photos blue water background and the bubbles that appear around the child’s face, it makes it appear that she is underwater, however if you look closely, you can see that her hair appears to be dry leading to the conclusion that she may have been just jumping into the water when the photo as taken.

What do you think? Underwater or jumping in?  Let us know in the comments below!

Facebook Finally Agrees To Test A “Dislike” Button!


(PCM) For years Facebook users have been requesting that the social media giant add a “Dislike” button alongside the “Like” button and at long last Facebook has acknowledged their demands.

The company revealed that they are set to begin testing a “Dislike” button and depending on the feedback it receives they will roll it out to a broader audience.  Facebook now understands that not every post, especially if it is of depressing or sad, does not warrant getting a “Like” and users can be left in an awkward position having no option of how to respond to a friends’ posting.

During the Town Hall Q & A held at Facebook headquarters Mark Zuckerberg revealed the news and said the simple request for a “Dislike” button was “surprisingly complicated”. He went on to say “The company had hesitated to launch a dislike button, but it has realized that people want to ‘express empathy’ on posts about unpleasant news. ‘Not every moment is a good moment’.”

There has been no official date for the “Dislike” button to unveiled, but we are definitely excited!
