    The Associated Press has made one million minutes of historic footage available on YouTube, including the bombing of Pearl Harbor and Tiananmen Square - and of course the thing that immediately goes viral is Binky the polar bear attacking a dumb tourist at a zoo.

    Back in 1994, Australian tourist Kathryn Warburton climbed over TWO railings to get closer to Binky's cage, and like the massive carnivore that he is, Binky quickly chomped down on her foot while others screamed for help.

    YouTube wasn't around then, so it couldn't go viral - but now that the footage IS on YouTube, people are jumping all over it.
