According to this bizarre news item, one Carlton Kohnert—an enlisted Marine, shown on duty at left—dressed up in a child's yellow banana costume, exposed himself to a woman at the local Wendy's restaurant, then drove around on a ranch brandishing a shotgun and yelling about white power. A 21-year-old male friend and an 18-year-old girl were with him during the banana-clad spree:
"The banana costume has been seized and put into evidence," [Clallam County Sheriff's Sgt. Randy Pieper ] said.
"[Kohnert] couldn't really tell us why he was in the costume.
"All we know is he was drinking earlier in the day, but he didn't really have a reason for the costume."
(...) After leaving Port Angeles, the group made a stop at Four Seasons Ranch, where Kohnert -- still dressed in the banana costume -- got out, brandished a shotgun and began yelling, Pieper said.
"We believe he was yelling something or other about white supremacy," Pieper said.

Thinking of a business idea is the easy part. Doesn’t even have to be a “good” idea, you can still get people to throw money at a non-existent venture, but to do that you need to at least have something even resembling a viable business plan. Why doesn’t anyone do it then? Because building that semi-viable […]
