Hawaii 5-0: The longest-running police drama until Law and Order. While the stars worked for the state police department in the series, in reality, Hawaii doesn’t have a statewide police department or DMV. They are managed by each county government.
Pele: The goddess of fire. Every year, park rangers receive packages from tourists who took volcanic rocks from Kilaeua on The Big Island. The tourists claim that taking the lava rocks angered Pele, who cursed them with bad luck.
Black Coral: Hawaii’s official state gem, which is actually an animal. Named for their stiff black or brownish skeleton, Black Corals are carnivores firmly attached to the seafloor feeding on animal plankton swept over its polyps by ocean currents. Found outside of the ocean primarily in jewelry, Black Coral has been harvested for centuries as a charm and medicine. It is believed to have to power to ward off evil and injury.
USS Arizona: The ship that endured the most devastating damage in the Pearl Harbor attack. The day before the attack, the USS Arizona took on a full load of fuel – nearly 1.5 million gallons. Much of that fuel helped ignite the explosion and subsequent fires that destroyed the ship, but amazingly, some of the fuel continues to seep out of the wreckage. According to the History Channel, the Arizona “continues to spill up to nine quarts of oil into the harbor each day” and visitors often say it as if the ship were still bleeding.
