Happy New Year Hollywood! Famous Sign Vandalized

(PCM) Several folks played an epic New Year’s Eve prank in Hollywood, California as some time in the overnight hours the famous Hollywood Sign was vandalized to read “Hollyweed” instead.

It is mind-blowing that someone could even get away with this due to heightened security measure, however authorities do claim that they have video footage of the suspects caught on surveillance cameras.

So far the authorities are treating the incident as a misdemeanor trespassing crime and a currently conducting a further investigation.

The incident most likely took place due to the legislation that recently passed allowing the recreational use of marijuana in the state of California. Despite the law passing, recreational marijuana will not be sold in stores until January of 2018.

New Reality Series Could Potentially Allow Rape And Murder In The Siberian Wilderness

(PCM) The internet is in a frenzy over the news about a new Russian reality series where contestants must survive in the -40F Siberian wilderness for nine months for a grand prize amount of $1.6 million dollars.

The series will be called “Game 2: Winter” and from its’ description sounds like the “Hunger Games” come to life. There is the fact that the contestants could potentially be raped, mauled or even killed by the wild animals in the region such as bears, tigers or wolves. They could also be attacked by their fellow contestants who are in it to win it and get their hands on the million dollar prize.

In fact, they are even advertising the series saying that each contestant gives their consent prior to signing up for the show that they could be maimed, or even killed. The ad for the series read’s “2000 cameras, 900 hectares and 30 lives. Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.” Scary stuff! And you just know that everyone will be tuning in as the series will be streaming online 24 hours seven days a week.

Despite the phrasing of the advertisement for the show, rest assured that murder is still very much illegal in Russia. If a crime is caught taking place on camera by one of the contestants than the perpetrator will be arrested and taken into police custody. No guns will be allowed, however contestants will be able to carry knives for their protection.

The 2,000 cameras put in place will film all of the action and each contestant will be equipped with their own body camera to capture the madness. Each contestant must be “mentally sane” and over the age of 18 to participate in the series.

Rumor has it that the series is currently in production now and will air sometime around July of 2017 and run through February of 2018. It will be able to streamed all over the world.

Would you tune into something like this?  Has reality television finally gone to far?

Mysterious Ghost Shark Caught On Camera For The Very First Time

(PCM) Researcher at the Monterery Bay Aquarium Research Institute are beyond excited to have just captured the first ever live footage of a ghost shark, also known as a chimaera, swimming about in the depths of the ocean. The news was revealed by the folks at National Geographic.

Ghost sharks are rarely, if ever seen by humans, and actually have never been viewed alive until now. These creatures, who pre-date even the dinosaurs, live so far at the bottom of the ocean that they are usually never discovered until they are dead. The chimaras are a cross between both a shark and a ray and come from a breed that split off nearly 300 million years ago.

It turns out that the footage of the ghost shark in action was actually a bit of an accident. The researchers who discovered the footage were actually geologists who were working on a different projects and looking at footage of dives which took place off the coast of Hawaii and California back in 2009. The researchers noticed that a small white shark kept bumping it’s nose into the camera and realized that particular shark resembled the chimaera species.

Further research leads to the ghost shark creature actually being a pointy-nose blue chimaera who mostly reside off the coast of New Zealand. How the creature ended up in the Hawaii/California area is still a larger mystery to unravel, but certainly one that researchers hope to solve in the near future. You can see the ghost shark in action below:

Domino’s Pizza Is Training Reindeer To Deliver Pizza In Japan

(PCM) We can think of about a million and one reasons why this is not such a good idea, however Domino’s Pizza still plans to move forward with their “brilliant” idea to train reindeer to deliver pizza’s this holiday season in Japan. The franchise branch that came up with the idea is even figuring on a way incorporate GPS technology to equip the reindeer and the pizza will be delivered via sleigh. Tis’ the season of ridiculousness! 

The fine folks at the Domino’s franchise in Japan that hatched this plan have released a video showcasing their effort in training the pizza delivering reindeer. Let’s just say, it doesn’t go exactly according to plan (gee..didn’t see that one coming!).

Domino’s plan was to equip the reindeer with GPS trackers so that the customer who ordered the pizza would be able to track their whereabouts and delivery time. They unfortunately did not plan for such instances as the pizza falling off the back of the reindeer or the reindeer veering the sleigh off course. Not sure what they were really expecting with an untrained wild animal, but hey, we give them points for the attempt and creativity. 

A press release for the company states that it is “too difficult to control the reindeer” but they are still trying to work out the situation and urge their customers to stay tuned for additional information.

Cards Against Humanity Raises $90K To Dig A Hole For No Reason

holiday-hole

(PCM) This is not surprising news coming from the folks behind the crude party card game “Cards Against Humanity”, as they have always been known to push the limits.

The company has currently raised more than $90,000 to literally dig a hole in the ground that leads to nowhere. They have named it the “Holiday Hole” and when visiting the company’s website you can view a live stream of the hole be dug in the ground for absolutely no reason.

The more money that is donate the further “Cards Against Humanity” will dig. Each $5.00 donate adds 2 more seconds of dig time to the “Holiday Hole”. The company has launched a website to promote the project and are taunting their supporters by labeling the amount of donations received as “Money Thrown In Hole”.  It is actually kind of mesmerizing to watch, as you know in the back of your mind that the hole is the result of people’s hard-earned dollars being literally thrown into the ground. 

Obviously the company statement about holiday consumerism is working and people are fascinated by the sheer and utter ridiculousness of the project. Top donors for the project have donated amounts of money over $1,000 and the donates are continuing to pour throughout the Thanksgiving weekend. Makes us curious as to just what they will think of next.

Real Life Phantom Of The Opera Shuts Down The Met

met-opera-house

(PCM) A performance of Rossini’s Guillaume Tell at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City was cut short after an audience member was seen sprinkling a mysterious powdered substance in the orchestra pit during intermission.

Officials at The Met called in counterterroism officials to investigate and run test on the substance which turned out to be none other than human ashes. Definitely creepy and certainly on The Met’s side to take necessary precautions.

Authorities questioned several of those in attendance for the performance who claimed that an unidentified man revealed to them that he had plans to sprinkle the ashes of his dead friend and opera aficionado at the historic opera house.

The man was seen on security camera footage reaching into his jacket and sprinkling the contents for a black bag in the orchestra pit during intermission when hardly any musicians were still present. The rest of the evenings performance was then cancelled when the counterterrorism officials were called in and another performance was also cancelled later that evening as an extra precaution.

The powder is still being tested however authorities are nearly positive that it is indeed human ashes. No word on whether or not charges will be filed against the man who attempted to create a literal phantom of the opera, but we are sure it’s a safe bet that he will be facing some type of criminal charges, but he is seriously one heck of a loyal friend.
