Tomorrowland_Feat(PCM) Walt Disney Pictures released a new IMAX poster for two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland, featuring the ultramodern skyline of the futuristic world of Tomorrowland. Check it out below!

Written and directed by Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and co-writer Damon Lindelof (Star Trek Into Darkness, World War Z) from the story by Bird, Lindelof, and Jeff Jansen, Tomorrowland follows Casey Newton, a teen who discovers a portal to the future after receiving a mysterious token in her possessions upon getting out of juvie.

Twin Strangers Discovered Living Just An Hour Apart

Twin-strangers1

(PCM) It is said that nearly everyone in the world has a doppleganger (someone who looks exactly like you), but could you imagine to discover that said person was living only about an hour away from you!

This is just what occurred for two women living in Ireland. 26-year old Niamh Geaney of Dublin discovered her nearly identical twin stranger 29-year old Karen Branigan who resides in the neighboring town of Drogheda. The pair were able to discover each other through the use of social media and a project idea called “Twin Strangers” started by Geaney and two other friends.

The mission for the three friends behind “Twin Strangers” was to find their dopplegangers, living anywhere in the world, in just a month. The three have been using all forms of social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, their official site for the project and of course good old fashioned word of mouth to assist them on their quests.

Obviously, Gearney is in the lead, now that she has discovered her doppleganger was only living about an hour away!  Gearney and Branigan’s first meeting was captured on video and uploaded to Youtube, racking up over 5 million views and counting.

Adorable Cat Acts As A Nurse At Polish Animal Shelter

Radmenes1

(PCM) This story is almost too adorable for words!  A cat by the name of Rademenes, who was brought to an animal shelter in Bydgoszcz, Poland when he was two months old suffering from an inflamed respiratory tract, now has quite the unusual job. Rademenes acts as a kitty caretaker at the animal shelter nursing other sick animals back to health.

When Rademenes was first brought to the shelter, his owners believed that he would have to be put down. A vet at the shelter was able to nurse Rademenes back to health and how he has a permanent home and job at the animal shelter.

Rademenes is known to hug, spoon, nuzzle and clean many of the other sick animals at the shelter in an attempt to comfort them and make them feel better during their stay.  He not only performs these duties with other cats, but has been known to snuggle up next to the shelter dogs as well.

Over $70,000 Worth Of Bull Semen Stolen In Minnesota

Bull1

(PCM) We are not real sure why anyone would want to steal frozen canisters of bull semen, but apparently there is a market for it somewhere. Police in Minnesota are currently investigating the recent theft of over $70,000 worth of bull semen from a rural dairy farm. Police say the farm owner told them that the semen was frozen in a canister, almost like a milk jug and inside that canister were vials of bull semen worth anywhere from $300 to $1,500 each. In fact the canister itself was worth about $500. Unfortunately the famer’s barn was accidentally left unlocked at the time of the crime. If you were wondering just why someone would want to steal all of that bull semen, it seems that there is a pretty big market for it in the dairy farm industry. People can bid on or purchase the bull semen and use to to inseminate their cows artificially. It cuts down on animal transport costs for mating. It is worth pretty good money, however this may just be the first case we have come across where this much at a time has been stolen.

Is The Cat Going Up The Stairs Or Down The Stairs? Let The Debate Commence!

Cat-stairs

(PCM) You may remember the case of the infamous “blue dress” image that sent the internet into a tizzy of debate as to what was the actual color of the garment. Was it blue/black or white/gold?  The optical illusion certainly had people split 50/50 on both sides of the argument.

A new image of a cat that was posted on 9gig.com has stirred up a similar debate across the internet, as many people are confused as to whether or not the cat is going up or down the set of stairs.

We discovered one possible theory surrounding the cat photo courtesy of Nick Carter, a Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School.

Professor Chater said: “We see in 3-D, even though our eyes only receive 2-D images. This seems puzzling, because, it can be shown mathematically that there is an implied number of 3-D scenes that will create the same 2-D images.

“Most of the time, our brain is spectacularly good at solving this problem – it usually turns out that, precisely one 3-D interpretation is ‘sensible’ and all the others are bizarre, in one way or another.

“A classic visual illusion, the Ames rooms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ames_room​) shows this very neatly. We look through a peephole on one side of what appears to be a perfectly normal rectangular room, but it is in fact a bizarre stretched-out shape, carefully designed to project just the same 2-D image as a normal rectangular room would (And, in fact, there is an infinite number of weird shaped Ames rooms that would fool us just as well).

“So our brain uses the most ‘sensible’ 3-D interpretation; and mostly (except when we are being subjected to cunning visual illusions) this works just fine. But sometimes there are two equally plausible 3-D interpretations of the same 2-D image. Famous examples include the Necker cube (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necker_cube) and Rubin’s face-vase illusion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubin_vase). ​Then, the brain flips between one interpretation and the other.

“So why does the ‘cat on the stairs’ picture have two interpretations? The key is the amorphous grey square at the top of the picture. Consider the angle between the plane of the staircase and the surface represented by this grey patch.

“When we see the cat as coming downstairs, the grey square is interpreted as ceiling – and this makes an acute, roughly 45 degree, angle with the staircase.

“But when we see the cat as going upstairs, the grey square is now interpreted as floor – and this makes an obtuse, roughly 135 degree angle with the staircase.

“If we could only tell the ‘slant’ of the mysterious square patch in relation to the staircase we would know if it was floor or ceiling, and so there would be no ambiguity. But the image cleverly leaves the grey square bereft of any clues. So we flip from one interpretation to the other.”

There you have it ladies and gentlemen!  Happy debate!
