Ultimate Survival Guide: How to Survive a Bigfoot Attack

Most of the granola-munching hippie population would have you believe that Bigfoot is a peaceful giant, misunderstood by others, shunning society (and clothing) and preferring to live a life of quiet seclusion. But, of course, you know better. You know that Bigfoot is really a blood-thirsty maniac with an insatiable appetite for human flesh, lurking in the shadows of the wilderness in wait for his unsuspecting prey (much like Ted Nugent).

You may or may not know what it's like to be eaten by a Bigfoot, and luckily, thanks to this article, you will never have to find out.

When it comes to fending off vicious creatures, such as Bigfoots, werewolves, and Girl Scouts, preparation is key. Never venture into the woods alone unless you have the proper tools for self-defense. When it comes to Bigfoot, the best tool for preventing an attack is pepper spray (pepper spray also works on wolves, bears, puppies, and the Abominable Snowman).

Unlike a wild boar which charges its prey, Bigfoot prefers the ambush method. He will hide behind a tree or a large bush, and is very adept at making bird calls. It is a common misconception that Bigfoot howls or growls. This is untrue. Bigfoots (or is it Bigfeet?) do not have highly-developed vocal cords, but they are excellent at whistling. A Bigfoot will use this skill to disguise and camouflage his movements. In other words, if you hear a rustling noise coming from behind a tree followed by incessant tweeting, there's a very good chance that Bigfoot is lurking nearby.

When a Bigfoot attacks, he will prefer to attack from behind, wrapping his big hairy mitts around your waist before sinking his teeth into your neck. To prevent this from happening, you may choose to wear a neck brace while traipsing around in the woods. As soon as you feel Bigfoot's hairy arms around your midsection, turn around and spray the creature in the eyes with your pepper spray. This won't kill Bigfoot, but it will cause him to release his grip.  If, on the other hand, Bigfoot does not release his grip, you may be in big trouble since he probably doesn't take too kindly to being sprayed with pepper spray (much like an Occupy Wall Street protester).

Even though Bigfoot is stealthy, he is very slow afoot. As Bigfoot sinks to his knees and wipes the pepper spray from his eyes, run away as fast as you can. Do not stay and fight with Bigfoot, and above all do not attempt to photograph Bigfoot. There is a reason why so few pictures of Bigfoot exist; it is because most of the people who take Bigfoot's picture are eaten shortly thereafter.

Editor's Note: This article is not intended to serve as actual advice should you encounter an angry Bigfoot.

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his br…

Remembering the ill-fated voyage of the Aerowagon

From 1917 to 1922, the Bolshevik-led Red Army battled the anti-Communist White Army during the Russian Civil War.  By the end of 1919 the Bolsheviks had taken the cities of Omsk and Kiev, and had successfully repelled the White Russian siege of Petrograd.  However, the Bolshevik's momentum would be short-lived as the White Army, after retreating across the Baikal, regrouped and joined forces with Gigory Semyonov's Transbaikal Cossacks.  As the Red Army's losses began to mount, especially in Poland, the Bolsheviks attempted to gain a competitive advantage by embracing new technologies, sometimes with disastrous results.  Such is the sad tale of young inventor Valerian Abakovsky and his Aerowagon.

Abakovsky was a Latvian-born inventor who earned his living as a chaffeur for Cheka, the state security organization created by Lenin.  His position granted him access to many high-ranking Soviets and, although details are scarce, Abakovsky most likely used his influence within th…

Jenny Hanivers, Mermaids, Devil Fish, and Sea Monks

Three centuries before P.T. Barnum attracted flocks of crowds with his mummified Fiji Mermaid (which turned out to be a papier-mâché creation featuring a monkey's head and a fish's body), sailors around the world had already began manufacturing "mermaids".  Known as Jenny Hanivers, these creations were often sold to tourists and provided sailors with an additional source of income.  These mummified creatures were produced by drying, carving, and then varnishing the carcasses of fish belonging to the order rajiformes- a group of flattened cartilaginous fish related to the shark which includes stingrays and skates.  These preserved carcasses can be made to resemble mermaids, dragons, angels, demons, and other mythical creatures.

Jenny Hanivers became popular in the mid-16th century, when sailors around the Antwerp docks began selling the novelties to tourists.  This practice was so common  in the Belgian city that it may have influenced the name; it is widely believed …
