Evelyne Axell’s “Ice Cream” Deemed Too Suggestive For Facebook!

Ice-Cream-art

(PCM) Now this is just ridiculous Facebook! It seems that the 1964 painting by Belgian artist Evelyne Axell titled “Ice Cream” has been deemed too suggestive for Facebook, as it contains ‘excessive amounts of skin or suggestive content.’ We can definitely vouch for saying we have seen a lot worse than this on Facebook!

An image of the painting was posted to the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Facebook page, however it was removed several hours later after Facebook decided it violated certain decency standards. The Philadelphia Museum of Art then reposted the image with the following message:

We recently posted this picture on Facebook, but it was removed by Facebook for “containing excessive amounts of skin or suggestive content.”“Ice Cream” (1964) was painted by Evelyne Axell, one of the first female Pop artists. Her work can be understood as a critique of mainstream Pop Art, in which women were often depicted as passive, decorative objects. In contrast, Axell sought to depict active, confident women who pursue satisfaction on their own terms—such as the protagonist of “Ice Cream,” who unabashedly enjoys her dessert. Axell’s provocative paintings challenge artistic conventions while also exhibiting a liberated, playful spirit characteristic of the sexual revolution of the 1960s. “

They then urged fans to start a discussion as to why Facebook felt the need to remove the image in the first place. Many were confused and others thought the situation was hilarious considering the excessive amount of skin seen popping up on various Facebook pages throughout each and every day. What do you think? Is “Ice Cream” too suggestive for Facebook? We think not!

NASA Claims Meteorite Did Not Kill A Man In India

Meteorite1

(PCM) The news recently broke that a bus driver was killed and three other people were injured in India after being struck by a meteorite that rained down upon a college campus. It would have been the very first confirmed death due to the impact of a meteorite, however it now appears that this may not be true.

Witness’s on the scene recall hearing a large explosion and authorities recovered a black, pockmarked stone from the site of what appears to be a large crater five feet deep and two feet wide. The image has been circulating online and many initially felt that it resembled the type of indentation that a meteorite would make if it crashed upon the earth, however there was no meteorite shower predicted nor observed on that particular day. Experts say it would have been an incredibly rare phenomenon.

NASA has weighed in on the controversy and they say according to the New York Times, “the photos posted online were more consistent with a “land-based explosion” rather than something from space. NASA goes on to say that death by a meteorite explosion is so rare that one has never been scientifically confirmed in recorded history.  There have been some meteorite related injuries over the years but no deaths.

Meteorites are cool to the touch when they land and NASA feels that the image taken in India more than likely appeared to be nothing more than a common earth rock.

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!

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!

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.
