Push for Pizza

And they say American Innovation is dead.

Push For Pizza sounds like something a stoned teenager would come up with while weighing the pros and cons of ordering food late at night: ‘I’m super hungry, but I don’t want to interact with people or decide between a bunch of options. If only there were another way…’”

Kitten In A Microwave

Two teenage girls from Maine put an 8-week-old kitten in a microwave oven and turned it on. What next? They put the video on Twitter, of course. Talk about your mean girls ….

Jane Austen, Teen Queen

New evidence suggests that a 1789 painting by Ozias Humphry is a portrait of a 13-year-old Jane Austen. Using digital photo analysis, Stephen Cole of Acume Forensics discovered faint written inscriptions on the canvas identifying the budding author and the artist.

Wealthy lawyer Francis Austen had his portrait painted by Ozias Humphry, and young Miss Austen probably sat for the artist while visiting great uncle Francis in Kent. Perhaps she snuck away from her uncle’s house to hang out with other teens at the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre food court.
