    Wow, two squid posts in one day -- Poseidon must be losing his shit at his computer right now. This is a video of the giant squid caught by Japanese fisherman Shigenori Goto. Fun fact: giant squid are rarely seen because they live so deep in the ocean and guard Atlantis. G... / Continue →

    This is a video of some ingenious Ruskies fishing a Honda SUV out of a frozen lake. How did it get there in the first place? My guess is vodka. The car's owner says even after its little swim the car still drives. Drives, and has to smell like shit. Keep going to find out ... / 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 →

    This is a picture of an Australian fisherman cutting himself out of a shark. It didn't actually eat him though, he just caught the shark, gutted it, then climbed inside to have the picture taken. That's pretty sick. Now listen: I hate sharks as much as the next guy who agree... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like about 40 fish sticks, a group of fishermen caught this three-eyed Simpsons 'blinky' fish in a lake near a nuclear power plant in Argentina. Jealous cyclops shark is jealous! Per Babel Fish (how appropriate!) translation: "We were fishing and we took th... / Continue →

    Mine usually say, "this seat's taken". Fish: just like people, they can toot. Sure scientists might try to argue herring are the only ones that bust ass in the traditional sense, but that's bullsh*t because I used to have an aquarium with all kinds of fish in there and someti... / Continue →

    Fish, long thought to make terrible tradesmen (but delicious sticks), can apparently use tools. Rocks are tools, right? "URG!" ...Thanks for your input, Grok, but your dingaling is showing. I'm serious, people are starting to stare. Me? I've been staring the whole time. ... / Continue →

    This is the Sealander, a camping trailer small enough to be towed behind a regular-sized car that, when backed into the water, turns into a lil boat. No word if it has a glass bottom so you can watch mermaids making love in the seaweed below, but probably not considering MERMA... / Continue →

    Ever wanted a clear canoe or kayak so you can see what's going down in the water below you? Personally I've always been too scared, especially if it has anything to do with sharks. Still, when I was a kid I did throw fish-food on the floor of a glass-bottom boat, so there's t... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like a sad-ass Charlie Brown, the blobfish may very well be on its way to extinction. And not just because he needs to get those spots on his lips looked at by a medical professional, but I warned him that blowfish had blown the whole reef. The depths at whi... / Continue →

    I've known about other species of handfish for awhile because I pretty much know everything including most of the stuff the government tries so hard to keep from us. The island from LOST actually existing aside, there's a new species to add to the soon-to-be-extinct list: the ... / Continue →
