    This is a video demonstrating the robotic octopus built by the Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas. You know, because regular octopuses weren't scary enough. They all look like alien penises to me. "You spend a lot of time thinking about alien penises?" I write Sta... / Continue →

    10-year old George the goldfish is doing swimmingly following a 45-minute procedure to remove a brain tumor (links to whole story with pictures of the whole process). Because apparently that's something that can be done. Next stop: turning the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bac... / Continue →

    First the live Twitch stream of a beta fish playing Pokemon, and now two fish in the same tank battling each other in Street Fighter II. There's definitely a lot more action happening on this channel. You think the fish actually know what they're doing? When reached for some... / Continue →

    This is a pretty poor quality video (I dunno, maybe next time get somebody else to hold the camera if you've got the fishing rod) of a Goliath grouper (which can grow to 10-feet and 790-pounds) eating a 4-foot black-tip shark in a single bite. For reference, it probably would ... / Continue →

    I'M A BIIIIIIIIRD! This is a video about a 'salmon cannon' designed to launch salmon upstream in places where dams make swimming upstream to spawn impossible. The cannon can shoot the fish up to 22MPH, with a rate of 40 salmon per minute. Then they all get together and have ... / Continue →

    I guess you could say he's BETA testing the game (come kick me in the nuts). This is the live Twitch stream of Grayson Hopper the beta fish playing Pokemon Red/Blue by swimming around his fishbowl. He seemed to be sleeping most of the time I was watching though. Well, at lea... / Continue →

    This is a video of an airplane repopulating a Utah lake by dropping a fishy payload while flying over it. It must have been the ride of those fishes lives. OMG WHAT'S HAPPENING? WTF IS HAPPENING? OMG, OMG. HOLY SHIT WE'RE BIRDS -- WHEEEEEEEEE!! Hopefully none landed on the... / Continue →

    These are a few shots from photographer Jesse Rockwell of the New World Mall in Bangkok, Thailand. The 11-story mall was closed in 1997 for being seven stories taller than the blueprints said it would be, then somebody tried to burn the building to the ground in 1999 because s... / Continue →

    Cool helmet, Jacques Cousteau. This is a video demonstrating what happens when you crack an egg underwater (and deep enough for the water pressure to have an effect). I actually posted a better version of the experiment back in 2012, but maybe you weren't reading then. Hell,... / Continue →

    Retroactive warning: Spider eating fish picture. In news that makes Nemo very sad for his freshwater friends, scientists have confirmed at least 18 different species of spiders found all around the world that kill and eat fish. Would you split a sushi dinner with a spider? I... / Continue →

    This is an underwater video of a huge group of sharks swarming a boat after the fisherman threw their unwanted catch over the side. That sounds wasteful. Still, I swear I saw a scene like this in a movie once. Except it wasn't actually a movie, it was a vision in a crystal b... / Continue →

    This is a video of sushi chef Hironori Ikeno preparing his special -- tiny slices of fish atop single grains of rice. There is no way I could get one of those in my mouth without losing it first. And if it did make it to my face, I'd probably accidentally vacuum it up my nose... / Continue →

    This is a video of a goldfish in a little aquarium on wheels who can steer the thing by swimming in different directions (which is captured by a webcam). It's basically exactly like Finding Nemo, provided you've never seen the movie and thought it was about a fish who owned a ... / Continue →

    Snorkeling: it's like one step away from drowning. But now there's the Easybreath Snorkeling Mask, a snorkel that lets you breathe through your nose (just like on dry land!) for people who aren't coordinated enough to only breathe through their mouth. Fun fact: one time I was... / Continue →

    This is the PELEG DESIGN's Yolkfish, a small rubber kitchen utensil that can suck egg yolks out of the whites. Plus-- "You can use it on your balls?" Well 1. not if you're cooking me breakfast and 2. that's not what I was going to say, but now that you mention it, it's all th... / Continue →

    This is a godawful quality video (after the jump) of an African Tigerfish (above) leaping out of the water to catch a bird mid-flight. Sucks to be that bird. Of course, it shouldn't have been flying so close to the surface in the first place. THAT'S WATER DUMMY, YOU DON'T BE... / Continue →

    Allegedly this is the first time a deep-sea squid has been filmed attacking a fish (and using its beak to drill into the fish's spinal cord -- BRUTAL). I have no idea if that's true or not because 1. I'm not a marine biologist and 2. I didn't Google it. Allegedly it is though... / Continue →

    This is an underwater video taken from the back of a speeding boat of a sailfish trying to bludgeon bait fish with its elongated bill and eat them. He has zero success, probably because all the fish are fake. If I were him I would have jumped into the back of the boat and spe... / Continue →

    This is the unidentified mystery fish caught by fisherman Sapar Mansor off the coast of Tudan, Malaysia. I'm not sure I would eat it, but I would. I'll eat almost anything, including playground sand. The creature has two tusk-like spikes near its mouth and measures over one ... / Continue →

    These are a series of 3-D resin paintings by DeviantARTist Kenglye. He creates the 3-D effect by pouring a thin layer of resin, painting that layer, pouring another thin layer, painting that one, and repeating until he's built up a real looking fish or octopus or turtle. Most... / Continue →
