TV star Lena Dunham is slamming a website after they issued a bounty for untouched photos of the star from her recent Vogue cover shoot.

The website Jezebel issued $10,000 for any reader who first sent undoctored photos of Dunham.

Dunham took on the scandal on her Twitter feed writing, "Some s--t is just too ridiculous to engage. Let's use our energy wisely, 2014."

Speaking to Slate France Dunham said, "I understand that for people there is a contradiction between what I do and being on the cover of Vogue; but frankly I really don't know what the photoshopping situation is, I can't look at myself really objectively in that way." Jezebel was able to nag the untouched images, which were only marginally cleaned up. See for yourself.

Apparently even rocket scientists can be stumped.

NASA officials are struggling to explain how a simple rock appeared in the path of the Mars rover.

While bare bedrock had been the only thing in view, one morning the rover's camera suddenly picked up the image of a rock the size of a "jelly doughnut."

"It was a total surprise, we were like 'wait a second, that wasn't there before, it can't be right. Oh my god! It wasn't there before!' We were absolutely startled," NASA Mars Exploration Rover lead scientist Steve Squyres of Cornell University told Discovery News.

No word on if they've also found signs of Martians playing hopscotch in the area.
