Disturbing images from a Prague cold war bunker

While in Prague for a business trip, I was able to join a tour of one of the cold war bunkers under the city.

The tour visited key sites of Czechoslovakian history, from the building of the secret police to the sites demonstrations for freedom. And the bunker at the Parukarka park. What we found was a freak show of gas masks and protective gear for everyone, from soldiers to babies. Unexplained mannequins hiding in the darkness. Machine guns pointing to audience seats. Stalin heads on shelves. Very unpleasant imagery. But interesting.

The structure itself looks like this:

At the bottom of the main entrance, there's a bar of a club that used the bunker in the early days of the free Czech Republic.

 The tour runs every day twice, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. The tour lasts 2 and 1/2 hours and can be booked here.

While dozens die every year attempting the summit with breathing

Bros Bearly Survive Bruin Break-In

My favorite part about bear videos this summer have been the screams. After the reactions in this video of a bear opening a car door in Yellowstone, I didn't think that I would hear a male voice at a higher pitch. I was wrong. When Rodney Ginn realizes his Mammoth Lakes, CA home has been broken into by a mama bear and her two cubs, he pretty much just loses it (rightly so).  RELATED: Bear Officially Out-Evolves Yellowstone Tourists, Opens Car Door The mother bear charges Rodney up the stairs,
