Conspiracy Theorists Claim Ancient Greek Sculpture Depicts A Laptop Computer

Ancient-lap-top

(PCM) Conspiracy theorists are now claiming solid evidence of time travel, as they feel the ancient Greek sculpture, “Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant” depicts the female assistant holding a laptop computer with two USB ports.

Historians are countering this claim by saying that this assistant is actually holding a wax tablet, however we have to say it does look eerily similar to a laptop. The ancient Greeks were using wax tablets since the 14th century B.C.

The conspiracy started after YouTuber “StillSpeakingOut” brought up the sculpture saying “I am not saying that this is depicting an ancient laptop computer. But when I look at the sculpture I can’t help but think about the Oracle of Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods to retrieve advanced information and various aspects.” Seems almost like an ancient description of the internet.

The J.Paul Getty Museum has an image of the sculpture on their website with the following description “the sculpture shows a woman “Lounging in a cushioned armchair… [She] reaches out to touch the lid of a shallow chest held by a servant girl.” It was created in approximately 100 B.C.

Paranormal investigators and conspiracy theorist claim that it is the holes pictured in the side of the box-shaped object that appear to be USB ports that support their claim. They say that those types of holes do not appear in ancient Greek depictions of objects such as ladies’ vanity cases, jewel boxes, or wax tablets, so therefore it must be a depiction of an object from the future.

Either way it is definitely food for thought. What do you think? Evidence of time travel or just a wax tablet?

Gimme A Break! Woman Is Seeking A Lifetime Supply Of Kit Kat Bars

Kit-Kat1

(PCM) A 20-year old college student by the name of Saima Ahmad definitely has an appetite for Kit Kat bars, as she is seeking a lifetime supply of them from the manufacture after purchasing some defective ones. It is unclear whether or not she just purchased from a bad batch, however Ahmad claims that out of the eight Kit Kat bars she purchased, none contained the crispy wafers inside, which happen to be a Kit Kat staple.

Ahmad was so angered at the lack of wafer that she penned a letter to Kit Kat’s parent company Nestle to express her displeasure, as well as, request a lifetime supply of the candy as compensation. Her letter reads as follows:

‘The truth of the matter is; manufacturers owe a duty of care to consumers. The specific duty you owe in consistency in your manufacturing process. The failure to take due care in the manufacturing process resulted in a product being defective. As a result I feel as though I have been misled to part with my money and purchase a product that is clearly different from what has been marketed by Nestle. The loss I have suffered is of monetary and emotional significance. I would like a full refund of the defective pack of KitKat I purchased. I have also lost my faith in Nestle. Clearly, if I wanted to purchase a confectionery item that is purely chocolate, I would have purchased a bar of Galaxy. I would therefore like to request a life-long supply of KitKat so that I can act as a means of quality control – it appears you need me more than I need you.’

Ahmad goes on to stress what an important issue this is and hopes she will find support with others who have been disappointed by the company in the past! So far there has been no word from Nestle about a response to Ahmad letter or if she will indeed receive her lifetime supply of chocolate, but hey, a girl can dream!

Is An 11 Minute Flight Between New York And London In Our Future?

Antipode

(PCM) You may think that this is impossible, however industrial designer Charles Bombardier is currently working on a new project called The Antipode which is a plane designed to fly between New York and London in just 11 minutes.  This idea gives us extreme anxiety just thinking about it!

Bombardier explains that the plane would work by climbing quickly to 40,000 feet using rocket boosters and would only hold 10 passengers who would be traveling at the insane speed of 12,430 miles per hour. To put it in perspective, an average 747 plane flies at only 570 miles per hours.

Thus far there are no prototypes of the plane, so this is all in theory. Bombardier’s previous project called The Skreemr would have traveled at Mach 10 speeds, which is faster than the speed of sound. It never got off the ground because of issues with heating and a giant sonic boom sound.  The Antipode would be set to travel at Mach 24, alleviating the issue of the sonic boom sound and it uses a technique called “long penetration mode,” “which would use a nozzle on the aircraft’s nose to blow out air and cool down the surface temperature.

It could be several years before any type of prototype for the Antipode is ready for human testing and we are certainly not in that big of a hurry!

Norway Woman Believes She Is Actually A Cat Born In The Wrong Body

Nano-Cat-Girl

(PCM) A 20-year old Norway woman is claiming that she has now made the realization that she is actually a cat that has been accidentally born into a human body. She also claims to have scientific proof, as she goes on to reveal that she made the realization that she was really at cat at age 16 after doctors discovered a “genetic defect” in her DNA.

Despite the fact that, Nano, looks very much like a 20-year old human girl, she dons cat ears, a fake fluffy tail and crawls around the floor on her hands and knees. She says that she also has the ability to communicate with cats that are born into their correct bodies, like a cat whisperer of sorts.  We are thinking crazy cat lady all the way, but hey, you never know!

Nano believes that she has been a cat all her life and lists the fact that she hates water, likes to meow and has great hearing to further back up her claim. Even her best friend Svein is supportive of Nano’s claims saying that the two communicate through cat language and he, himself, has three personalities, one of which is actually a cat.

Nano says that psychologists tell her that she will “grow out” of the cat behavior, but she certainly feels otherwise!

Groundhogs, Saints, and Bonfires: February Festivals of Spring

Campfire in the winter forest

(PCM) By the time February rolls in, many of us here in the northern hemisphere are tired of snow, and cold, and scraping our cars off every morning. We’ll be waiting with frosted breath to find out if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow – will spring make an early entrance, or are we condemned to six more weeks of winter blahs?

While the groundhog is a newish American pop culture hero, we humans have a long tradition of being sick and tired of winter halfway through it. Christian Candlemas, also known as the Feast of the Presentation, is observed forty days after Christmas. Candlemas is said to have roots in the Roman Lupercalia, an agricultural festival held in mid-February. Then there’s St. Brigid’s Day on February 1st – the Catholic feast day in honor of Ireland’s premiere patroness, who also has roots in a pagan past.

Imbolc was the Celtic mid-winter holiday, celebrated between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Imbolc (old Irish for “in the belly”) marked the start of lambing season and other signs of returning spring, and was linked to Brigid, a mother goddess and patron of livestock, healing, and artistry.

Brigid the Saint and her mythic pagan namesake remain important figures in Ireland and the Irish diaspora in the U.S. and elsewhere. Both the nun and the goddess are associated with fire: a perpetual flame in memory of St. Brigid is kept alive in County Kildare, Ireland, while modern Celts, Wiccans, and other Neo-pagans mark the festival with bonfires or candle rites.

No matter who you are, February 1st is a perfect time to warm your heart with thoughts of spring. Why not snuggle up in front of the fireplace tonight, or light some candles and make some pre-Valentine’s day romance? Get in the spirit with a hot toddy or Irish coffee, or get inspired: write a poem, crochet a new scarf, paint a picture – how about something with flowers in it? After all, spring is on its way: no matter what that groundhog has to say.

Dangerous Duct Tape Challenge Trend Lands Teens In The Hospital

Duct-Tape-Challenge1

(PCM) Yet another rather dangerous trend has been picking up steam via social media and has already landed at least one teen in the hospital as a result. The Duct Tape Challenge is a new game in which young adults and teen are wrapping someone very tightly in duct tape and then filming how quickly they are able to escape.

One Washington teen named Skylar Fish recently participated in the challenge and is now in the hospital fighting for his life. His friends wrapped him in duct tape and when he was trying to make his escape he lost his balance and slammed his head into a window, causing a brain aneurysm, severe head injuries, and damage to his left eye socket.

This is just the beginning of what type of injuries can possibly occur with these dangerous challenges, however more and more videos are popping up on Youtube and other social media accounts as everyone is trying to obtain their 15 minutes of internet fame. The videos are receiving millions of views, so parents please talk to your teens about not following the herd and hopefully not giving this silly challenge a try.
