(PCM) An Israeli artist by the name of Sigalit Landau came up with an incredibly unique idea for an art project. She decided to submerge a vintage black dress in the Dead Sea for a period of two months and then photograph the results when it emerged. The result is a stunning, glittering salt encrusted gown that is currently on display until September 3 at London’s Marlborough Contemporary art museum.

The project is titled “Salt Bride” and is inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play titled Dybbuk. The play follows the story of a young Hasidic woman who becomes possessed by the spirit of her dead lover. Landau’s gown is a replica of the one that was worn in the dramatic production done in the 1920’s.

During the two months that the dress was emerged Landau checked on the gown several times to check on the salt crystallization process and photographed the entire process for start to finish. The end result is amazing and the perfect way to blend both art and nature together to create a truly one-of-a-kind creation.

Why You Should Not Swim Naked Where People Are Fishing!

nude-beach

(PCM) A German nudist learned the hard way just why you should never go swimming in a lake where people are also fishing. Recently, at a lake in Augsberg, Germany a fly fisher caught a little more than he bargained for when he cast his line out in hopes of reeling in a fish. The fisherman initially believed that he had hooked an eel or a snake, but quickly realized what was actually on his line was a man’s penis.

Herbert Fendt, is a nudist who was enjoying a day on the lake, which happens to be a popular spot for both nude enthusiasts and fishermen, when he felt something a bit odd underneath the water. At first he believed he was trapped among some underwater plant, however upon further inspection he was horrified to see that a fishing hook had pierced straight through his “member”.

Fendt panicked and yelled out to the fisherman to be sure not to reel in the “catch”. Fendt was able to swim back towards the shore and then make his way to the hospital with the hook still firmly planted within his penis.  Fendt claims the doctor at the hospital could not resist a slight smirk, but the best part is that the fisherman was blaming Fendt for the incident and outright refused to apologize.

Fednt says “The fisherman told me it is not an official bathing lake and he has the right to fish at the spot, which is marked by some signs. I tried to explain to him that he should take into account the many swimmers who use the lake, and that I am unaware of any official prohibition to swim here but he did not care.”

This of course led to quite a bit of controversy and the president of the local fishing association eventually had to step in. She said “We fishermen can perfectly understand the situation. We all had at times a fishing hook pierced through one of our fingers, so we can imagine the incident was quite painful. Of course, fishermen should pay attention to bathers, but as the lake is an official fishing lake, swimming is at own risk.”

Guess the fisherman can chalk this one up to quite a memorable catch, but definitely one that will not end up on the grill or mounted on the wall, at least we hope!

Dog Elected Mayor Of Town,Again!!!

Duke-the-mayor-ps

 

It’s that dreaded time of year again. A time when our televisions, and everything around us seems to be consumed with political ads. That’s right folks it’s that time of year  again, when we have to hear all about how this person is going to change this thing or that thing. And how the other guy or gal did this or that. Following all that rhetoric can be very overwhelming and misleading to a lot of people.

Politics can be a very wearisome game. A game full of lies and half-truth’s. Politician’s seem to spend more time making promises, then they do fixing the issues. That is one of the reason’s American politics is laughed at by other countries around the world. Politics has become more of an entertainment art then it has been on solving major issues. Well the fine people of Cormorant, Minnesota have solved the problem. The town has elected a dog for mayor. That’s right a dog

Duke may very well be the most popular politician in recent history. This will be Duke’s third term as mayor of Cormorant. How can a dog be elected mayor? Well everyone loves dogs and they can’t tell a lie, because they can’t talk.

“Everybody voted for Duke, except for one vote for his girlfriend, Lassie,” David Rick, Dukes owner told a local affiliate of ABC News.

The voting was held over the weekend, the 9-year-old Great Pyrenees won his third consecutive term as mayor of mayor of the town of Cormorant, Minnesota. The voting took place at the annual “Cormorant Daze” festival. Voters paid $1 each to cast ballots in the election.

It may seem weird, but surprisingly Duke hasn’t been the first animal to be elected to office. A cow, two other dogs, a cat, and a beer drinking goat. Sometimes fact can be stranger than fiction.

Connecticut Dry Town Sells It’s First Drink In 81 Years!

Bridgewater

(PCM) For the past 81 years the town of Bridgewater, Connecticut has been a dry town, meaning there was a law prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages.  It was the last of the dry towns in the state, however that all changed when the first ever cup of beer was sold in Bridgewater during a recent county fair.

Bridgewater resident and volunteer firefighter Jim Lillis took the first sip of beer before passing the cup to other firefighters and fair volunteers who gathered for the ceremonial sale and to share in the tasting.

Residents approved alcoh ol sales in the town back in 2014 and it is surprising that it has taken them this long to finally sell a single cup of booze. The last time alcohol was reportedly purchased in Bridgewater was back in 1935. Restaurant developers were looking into the area for proposed eateries in the town, which only has about 1,700 residents, on the condition that they could serve alcohol. Thus far no restaurants have yet to open!

Criminals Attempt To Use Drones To Deliver Drugs In Jail

Drone1

(PCM) The newest way to have items delivered quickly and efficiently is through the use of drones, however that technology is still in its’ infant stage and needs a lot of work before it can be put into use by the general public, but leave it to criminals to start working the system before it has even started.

Criminals have now started using drones to deliver drugs and other items such as weapons and cell phones to their accomplices that are currently incarcerated. In London, police recently recovered two drone devices that were stuffed with mobile phones and drugs near Pentonville Prison. In fact, the authorities in the area have not set up a special task force called “Operation Airborne”  to catch criminals who are attempting to operate drones and drop contraband off in prison.

Authorities were alerted to the situation when they noticed a man acting suspiciously around the prison and when he was questioned ran away dropping both drugs and mobile phones. The man escaped, however the next day authorities discovered a crashed drone that was flying over top of the Pentonville prison.  The drone was stopped in mid-flight by a police officer and a package containing large amounts of drugs and two mobile phones was recovered from it.

Companies such as Amazon are searching for ways in which to use drones to safely and reliably deliver packages to customers, however the criminals continue to attempt to use the technology for more sinister purposes.

Wind Blows 1,500 Americans To Canada During Annual Floating Event

Float-Down

(PCM) The wind is responsible for a bit of an odd invasion that occurred near Ontario, Canada. It seems that 1,500 American’s were accidentally blown into Canadian territory while participating in a floating event that was taking place on the St. Clair River.  The Port Huron Float Down turned into an international incident when the “floaters” from Michigan were blown into Ontario by strong winds in the region.

The authorities in Ontario claim that there is no official organizer for the annual event and it poses no “significant and unusual hazards” given the quick-moving current, large volume of participants, lack of life jackets, and unpredictable weather conditions. It did however take them hours to get the situation sorted out and bus the approximately 1,500 hundred participants back to Michigan. Most were unprepared to be stranded, but made the best of the situation.

The event beagn at Port Huron’s Lighthouse Beach and was supposed to end at Chrysler Beach in Marysville, however after being blown off course things did not end quite as planned. During the floating event participants use anything and everything they can think of to craft floating vessels including wooden planks and even picnic tables. Ontario was left with a lot of clean-up after the event, however there are no hard feelings.

Hopefully the annual float down will have better luck with weather cooperation next year or else Canada may be faced with yet another unexpected raft invasion.
