Gotta Love Karma! Woman Yells At A Black Bear Snacking On Her Kayak


(PCM) We probably laughed at this video a little more than we should have, in fact, we even had to watch it twice!  It just proves why you cannot mess with mother nature or interfere with the animal kingdom, as karma certainly has a way of turning itself around.

Just listening to this poor woman continuously yelling “Stop Bear”, as if the bear will somehow turn around and respond is hilarious to those of us with a twisted sense of humor. The woman even attempts to reason with the bear while it is making a snack out of her kayak saying “It’s not even food. It doesn’t even taste good”! The woman’s identity has not yet been officially revealed and all that we know is that she is from somewhere in Southeast Alaska, but she is quickly becoming a viral superstar.  The video has been viewed nearly 800,000 times!

Something tells us “Bear don’t eat my kayak” is going to be a new catchphrase throughout the rest of this year. And taking a page right out of the Honey Badger handbook, bear doesn’t give a sh*t! Sorry about your luck lady … maybe next time you will think twice before busting out the pepper spray.

Gilligan’s Island – Why Did They Stay on the Island for so Long?

GilliganIIGilligan’s Island premiered on September 26, 1964, lasting three seasons through September 4, 1967. Basically, it started with our seven castaways on a three hour boat tour around Hawaii. A freak storm shipwrecked them on a deserted island. In 98 episodes, they all got along pretty well, a shining example of how we could all live harmoniously together, if we really gave the effort.

Some say that these seven people represented the seven deadly sins. Others say that they represent the seven continents. Others think that these seven were chosen purely for the (pre-PC) demographics.

A typical episode consisted of:
1. A chance to get off the island.
2. Gilligan inadvertently ruins that chance.
3. They forgive Gilligan.
4. 50/50 chance they were better off staying on the island.

There are several theories as to why the castaways were on the island for such a long time. The Pop Culture Madness Staff has painstakingly researched the many theories, and have come up with the following possible most likely scenarios.

Gilligan – Although it seemed that a storm genuinely knocked the boat uncontrollably off course, some investigators aren’t so sure that Gilligan didn’t want to just stay on the island. He was often seen lounging around, often leisurely fishing or just listening to rock music on the radio. He had two beautiful girls doing his cooking and cleaning, and had no real responsibility to speak of. Living that life of luxury, is it any wonder that he often “goofed up” any attempt at rescue?

Mister Howell (Thurston Howell III) – This millionaire Harvard graduate brought enough in money and changes of clothes for far longer than a “three hour tour.” Some have theorized that this wily man was actually dating a certain famous actress, and it was more than coincidence that movie star Ginger Grant, along with his trusting, loving wife, went along on his little “escape”. The Howells and Ginger “happened” to bring much more with them than any of the other passengers. Had he somehow arranged for an “experienced” crew, two beautiful women, and with one of the world’s smartest men to end up on this “deserted” isle, well prepared for a long stay?

The Professor (Roy Hinkley) – One of the world’s most educated men, some point to the fact that he had may have had a wife, and three “very lovely girls” at home. Without even getting into why he went on this cruise without his family, there are many unanswered questions. His claim that he was doing research for his upcoming book “Fun With Ferns” doesn’t make any sense at all, if he was truly expecting a three hour boat tour.

How did he keep his shirt so white on that island? It just doesn’t seem right.

We suppose it was just a happy coincidence that he brought so many books with him, but did he really need them? His known education included a B.A. from USC, a B.S. from UCLA, an M.A. from SM, and his Ph. D. from TCU. Professor Hinkley was clearly capable of building a boat to bring the castaways home. Some have suggested that he had a somewhat reasonable chance to “score” with Mary Ann or Ginger, but his actions never indicated any such interest. Something kept him on the island, afraid or unable to get back to civilization.

Mary Ann Summers – This young lady from Kansas was seemingly the most down-to-earth and likable person on the island. Poll after poll of male viewers preferred the company of Mary Ann over Ginger by a 4 to 1 margin. Along with the professor, she was an solo unlikely tourist. More than one investigator has indicated a belief that she was having an affair with the (married?) professor.

Ginger Grant – Ginger was seemingly starved for constant attention, like most actors. Our investigations indicated that there are only two undeniable facts about this movie star: 1. She was doing research for an upcoming Broadway show, as Cleopatra in “Pyramid for Two”. 2. She played her “sex kitten” role to get whatever she wanted while on the island. Rumors persist about a long term, pre-shipwreck affair with Thurston Howell.

Lovey Howell – The aristocratic Lovey Wentworth Howell was naive enough to believe that nothing was going between her husband and Ginger Grant, yet was generally aware of what was going on in her surroundings, especially what one should wear for the surprisingly many events that went on in the deserted island. She was often the liaison between the castaways and island intruders, and saved the seven on more than one occasion. Out of everyone, she had the least reason to go ‘isle.’

The Skipper (Captain Jonas Grumby) – Many believe he knew more than he let on. I and others have noted that he often would look right in our direction, straight through the fourth wall, right before hitting his “little buddy” Gilligan in the head with his cap. You would almost think that he knew we were there, watching him.

Every indication is that his intentions were never less than honorable on the island. Easily the most powerful of the bunch, he seemed to have a deep-rooted guilt over the group being shipwrecked, although it clearly was the fault of the weather reporting station, which had played the previous day’s forecast, calling for clear, calm seas.

Most of the evidence seems to point to Mr. Howell for getting them all stuck on the island, and at Gilligan for keeping them there.

Park Closes Due To An Abundance Of Bear Selfies


(PCM) Parks in both Colorado and Alaska were forced to close because visitors will not stop taking selfies with the wildlife, specifically the bears in the region. Park officials are afraid that if the dangerous behavior from visitors doesn’t stop then someone could end up very seriously injured or even dead. Officials have witnessed several visitors using selfie sticks and attempting to get as close to the bears as possible. So far, no injuries have been reported, however one visitor was chased by one of the bears. There are more bears in the region this year due to localized food failure in their normal habitats. While there may have been no bear attacks at these particular parks, other people have been injured while trying to capture that epic wildlife selfie. A California man was struck by a rattlesnake after snapping a selfie with the creature and a Mississippi woman was injured after snapping a selfie with a bison at Yellowstone National Park.

White House Renames Mt. McKinley To Denali


(PCM) In a historic move that is being bet with some criticism, the Obama Administration has revealed that they will be officially changing the name of North America’s tallest mountain peak from Mount McKinley to Denali. The news of the name change has been revealed on the eve of President Obama’s historic visit to Alaska and it is a major symbolic gesture towards Alaska natives who have informally been calling the mountain Denali, which is an Athabascan word meaning “high one”, for years.

Some people, especially coming from the state of Ohio, are criticizing the name change as the Obama Administration is entering into a decades-old conflict between residents in both Alaska and Ohio. People from Ohio are proud that the federal government recognized our 25th President William McKinley and named the peak after him, as he was from Ohio and assassinated in his second term as President.

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell says “With our own sense of reverence for this place, we are officially renaming the mountain Denali in recognition of the traditions of Alaska Natives and the strong support of the people of Alaska”. There has been no official word yet as to whether or not the people of Ohio will formally file a petition to block the name change, however people in Alaska are honored as they have been trying to have the name change recognized since 1975.

At 20,320 feet, Mt. McKinley stands as the continent’s tallest, and is still growing at a rate of about one millimeter per year. Known for its majestic views, the mountain is dotted with glaciers and covered at the top with snow year-round, with powerful winds that make it difficult for the adventurous few who seek to climb it.

Panic Erupted When A Giant Red Ball Rolled Through The Streets In Toledo!


(PCM) As a result of some severe weather that took place in the Toledo, Ohio area a giant, inflatable red ball was wedged loose from it’s place as part of an art exhibit in the area and began rolling down the street. The incident struck up a panic with Toledo residents caused several individuals to make an attempt to chase it down.

The giant red ball, which is 15 feet wide and 250 pounds, is part of an art installation projects called “RedBall Project” and consists of material that is similar to that of a rubber life raft. The installation was currently on display at the Toledo Museum Of Art.

Strong winds from a passing thunderstorm were able to knock the giant red ball loose and cause it to roll away down the street. Eventually, museum staff and a few other individuals were able to catch the ball and get it deflated before it could cause any real destruction. There were no injuries reported. The deflated ball was placed on a trailer and taken back to the museum for the artist to repair.

Because of the material the ball is made from it should be very easy to patch and there are plans to still have the giant red ball on display in several areas throughout the city, however extra measures will now be taken to be sure the ball is kept securely in place.

State Comes Up With A Brilliant Way To Thwart Theft Of “420” Mile Marker Signs


(PCM) It has become a popular trend among stoners to swipe any “420” mile markers found on their local area highways. These mile marker signs are looked at as a trophy of sorts with marijuana enthusiasts. Most of the time once it has been discovered that the mile marker is missing the state would immediately bring in a replacement, only for the same process to happen over and over again.

However, in the state of Idaho those days of replacing endless “420” mile marker signs are over!  They have come up with a brilliant and unique new way to thwart these signs from being stolen in the first place, by not having a “420” sign at all. Instead, in Idaho they are replacing the “420” mile marker sign with one that read “419.9”!

Idaho follows in the footsteps of other states such as Colorado and Washington, who have both taken similar measures with great success in thwarting the theft of their “420” mile marker signs. Not every state has an issue with signs being stolen, mostly because not all states have highways that reach the 420 mile point, however both Colorado and Washington have somewhat relaxed marijuana laws they have seen more thefts of the signs.
