Student outraged after school photo is retouched 

A student at an all-girls high school expressed outrage after she noticed some startling differences in her yearbook photo.

The student posted her story to Reddit saying that her photo had been significantly retouched on the school's ID cards.

“We are constantly reminded about positive body image and accepting ourselves for who we are. Having these changes made to make me appear thinner makes me wonder how must our school practices what they preach,” the student wrote.

She said changes in the photo included face thinning, lip and skin recoloring and eyebrow shaping.

The story spread and the school, located in Kansas City, heard word of the outrage. An official spoke with the Kansas City Star and claimed the school had no hand in the retouching and that it was a mistake by the photo company.

The student backed the school's claim up in an update to her initial reddit post and also said the students' original photos would be re-printed.

“My school has proved that they are fully behind positive body image by printing the untouched photos,” she wrote. “My school has realized that their students do not need to be "corrected".”

Thousands go pantsless for annual subway ride

Crowds of people riding public transportation without pants is no cause for alarm in an annual tradition known as “The No Pants Subway Ride.”

Staged by Improv Everywhere, the event began 14 years ago as a prank and has now grown into what's called “a celebration of silliness.”

“The idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants behave as if they do not know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants,” Improv Everywhere says.

An estimated 4,000 New Yorkers took part in the event on Sunday, WINS reports. Residents of other cities worldwide also participated.
