Man Vows To Eat A Photograph Of Jason Segel’s Face Everyday!

(PCM) No one really knows why a Canadian man by the name of Noah Maloney has vowed to chow down on a photograph of actor Jason Segel face each and every day, but he claims he will continue to do so until Segel agrees to eat a photo of Maloney’s face.

Yes, we know this is weird!

Maloney has already racked up over 477,000 views on YouTube, however he has yet to explain to anyone just why he is insistent that Segel snack on his face. He is probably just hoping for his fifteen minutes in the viral spotlight and it appears that he is succeeding thus far.

Maloney sent several tweets to Jason Segel revealing his plans and challenging the actor to participate. There has yet to be any response for Segel or his team. Sorry Maloney, looks like you might just being having dinner for one!

Scientists Claim We Could See A Return Of Woolly Mammoths In The Next Ten Years

(PCM) For many years researchers and scientists have been attempting to find a way to bring back the mysterious and extinct Woolly Mammoth and they now claim to be closer than ever to making that goal a reality. In fact, scientists are now saying that we could once again see a hybrid species of the great Woolly Mammoth once again roaming the earth within the next ten years.

Scientists at Harvard have been working diligently over the last few years with a gene-editing program called Crispr to combine the DNA of an elephant with that of an extinct Woolly Mammoth. The new creature would be called a “mammophant”, which would be an elephant that features a good number of Woolly Mammoth traits such as long shaggy hair and the ability to exist in sub-zero temperatures, as well as, have specially adapted blood.

The process of “de-extinction” is quite controversial, as many feel that nature has already taken it’s course and animals should not be “brought back” so to say, however advocates of the process feel that we should explore the technology and possibly get some answers to exactly what may have happened to these majestic creatures in the first place. There has always been some debate over just why Woolly Mammoths became extinct in the first place, with some believing that humans evolution played a big role and others feel it was strictly environmental factors.

The scientists began the project to resurrect the Woolly Mammoth back in 2015 after a fully preserved Woolly Mammoth carcass was discovered frozen in a Siberian tundra. The scientists were able to obtain some of the Woolly Mammoths DNA and continuously add to it to bring this creature back to life. The team is hoping to grow an embryo in an artificial womb and are confident they should be able to complete that task within the next ten years.

It is a concern of some that the Woolly Mammoth is not fit to survive in today’s climate conditions or would not be accepted by a herd of elephants in the wild, however the Harvard team feels that it is important to give this animal hybrid a fighting chance. What do you think? Should we bring back the Woolly Mammoth or just leave well enough alone?

Mystery Orange Alligator Appears In South Carolina

(PCM) No one can seem to explain the appearance of a mysterious orange colored alligator that has surfaced in a pond near Charleston, South Carolina. Residents that live near the retention pond claim that they have seen the oddly colored alligator numerous times, but there appears to be no solid reasoning behind it’s bright orange color.

The gator is 4 to 5 ft long and the most logical explanation for the alligators orange color comes from Jay Butfiloski with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, who says that the alligator may have turned orange in color due to spending the winter in a rusty steel culvert pipe. What is odd is that some of the rust did not wash off the alligator after it’s time spent in the fresh water.

Experts claim that the alligator is due to shed it’s skin soon, so perhaps then it will return to its’ normal coloring, but until then it is definitely a bright sight to see!  Many residents joke that the alligator used too much tanning oil over the summer!

Ben & Jerry’s Has An Actual Graveyard For Retired And Failed Flavors

(PCM) If you have ever paid a visit to the popular Vermont ice cream company, Ben & Jerry’s, website then you may have noticed that they feature a “Flavor Graveyard” on the site that pays homage to the companies many retired and failed flavors from over the years. However, did you know that there is actually a real-life flavor graveyard located at the Ben & Jerry’s factory located in Waterbury, Vermont that you can walk through as well. It is delightfully bizarre!

The flavor graveyard is situated on a hill that overlooks the factory and features granite headstones and witty epitaphs for each dearly departed flavor. According to Ben & Jerry’s website, the physical Flavor Graveyard was erected in 1997 and originally contained just 4 flavors, which only existed in the United States: Dastardly Mash, Economic Crunch, Ethan Almond and Tuskegee Chunk. Since then, the Graveyard has grown to include 35 flavors, including Wavy Gravy, Miz Jelena’s Sweet Potato Pie, Dublin Mudslide, Holy Cannoli and many more (mostly) beloved departed flavors .

You may wonder just what is buried underneath the headstones in the Flavor Graveyard. It seems that the folks at Ben & Jerry’s began have a mini funeral service for their departed flavors and a little wooden box containing a pint of the deceased ice cream flavor is placed in the ground. Some of the dearly departed flavors are described as :

1. Schweddy Balls (2011-2011) This ice cream with a name inspired by a famous Saturday Night Live sketch featured vanilla ice cream with a bit of rum, plus fudge-covered rum and malt balls.
2. Wavy Gravy (1991-2001) This caramel and cashew Brazil nut flavor stayed on shelves for eight years. The flavor also featured roasted almonds and a chocolate hazelnut fudge swirl. However, Ben & Jerry’s flavor graveyard claims, “Wavy Gravy isn’t dead – he lives in California.”
3. Oh Pear (1997-1997) This short-lived flavor featured an unusual combination flavors: pear ice cream with a tough of almond and a light fudge swirl throughout.
4. Dastardly Mash (1979-1991) This chocolate ice cream with pecans, almonds, chocolate chips, and raisins had a long run. Ben & Jerry’s flavor graveyeard attributes its downfall to raisins. “Here the brazen DASTARDLY lies,” it reads, “some say that raisin, caused its demise.”
5. Tuskeegee Chunk (1989-1990) This ice cream seems like it would have been popular — it was simply peanut butter ice cream with chocolate chunks throughout — yet it only stayed on shelves for a year.

Mount Rushmore’s Mysterious Hidden Room

(PCM) The Presidential faces carved into the surface of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota is one of the most recognizable landmark monuments in the United States, but did you know that they contain a bit of mystery as well? There happens to be a hidden room located just behind Abraham Lincoln’s hairline that was planned to be a place where a person could visit and learn everything they needed to know about the history of the mountain, the United States government and more! At one point it was even supposed to house historical documents such as the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The creation of Mount Rushmore took about 14 years of planning and sculpting by artist Gutzon Borglum, however he feared that once the monument was completed it would later be shrouded in mystery without some sort of explanation as to why the four Presidents depicted for the monument,George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln,  were so influential and chosen to be displayed on the mountainside by the artist.

In an effort to educate visitors about the history of the monument, Borglum planned to include a massive room that he would call the Hall Of Records and have it’s location be a direct part of the monument itself. In 1938, Borglum and his team began blasting away an area that was supposed to become the Hall Of Records, however that work was never completed when funding for the project was shut-down in 1941 when Borglum passed away and the South Dakota government officials declared the project completed.

What ended up being completed was an 18 foot doorway that led to a 75 foot by 35 foot tall room. There is still red paint on the walls that was placed to instruct workers on where to blast and multiple holes from floor to ceiling where dynamite was supposed to be placed. The room is still in place in it’s current condition and is inaccessible to tourists looking to take a peek.

Years later Borglum’s family petitioned the government to complete the room and honor his memory. In 1998, the government agreed and multiple porcelain plaques were laid in the ground at the site of the room that explained the mountains history and Borglum’s artistic vision. It reads:

“I want, somewhere in America, on or near the Rockies, the backbone of the Continent, so far removed from succeeding, selfish, coveting civilizations, a few feet of stone that bears witness, carries the likeness, the dates, a word or two of the great things we accomplished as a Nation, placed so high it won’t pay to pull them down for lesser purposes.

Hence, let us place there, carved high, as close to heaven as we can, the words of our leaders, their faces, to show posterity what manner of men they were. Then breathe a prayer that these records will endure until the wind and rain alone shall wear them away.”

The Hall of Records has since been sealed, but also enclosed are tablets that contain the story of our nation.  According to NationalParksTraveler.com, sixteen porcelain enamel panels containing the text from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, along with a biography of Borglum, and the story of the presidents, were sealed in a teakwood box, then placed in a titanium vault, and finally sealed shut under the weight of a 1,200 pound granite capstone inside the unfinished hall.

These artifacts are meant to be buried for thousands of years and when eventually unearthed instruct future civilizations about the history of the United States.
