    This is Iceberg, an all-white killer whale recently spotted with the rest of his pod off the coast of Russia. How nobody harpooned him to mount and display in their trophy room is beyond me. Jk jk, I cried during Free Willy too. And speaking of freeing willy *going for zipp... / Continue →

    So allegedly what happened is a a bunch of snowbanks in Russia began to melt, then it got cold again real quick, and they flash-froze into the icy river you see here. But who knows, maybe Santa's elves carved them or something. What I DO know is that I've actually flashed-fre... / Continue →

    These are some pictures of a "cloud tsunami" that rolled over some oceanfront condos in Panama City beach last week. You more observant readers might notice I put cloud tsunami in quotes thought because there's no such thing. Same goes for the tooth fairy. Trust me, I've bee... / Continue →

    Because Mother Nature may in fact be an evil sorceress and not the unshaven, tree-loving, weed smoking hippie-woman we've all imagined, here's an actual shot of a Brahmin-moth caterpillar taken by biochemist/photographer Igor Siwanowicz. WHAT. THE. F***? Why does it have al... / Continue →

    This is a newly discovered species of Yeti (NOT Batman) crab. It's similar to the other hairy-armed Yeti crabs except this one grows edible bacteria on its arms by methodically waving them around in front of deep sea methane vents. And speaking of deep sea methane vents: blue... / Continue →

    This is a video of a ladybug taking off shot at 7,000 frames/second. It's actually cooler than it sounds though ("good, because it sounds pretty f***ng lame") because you get to see the wings fold out from under its shell or whatever the hell the little red parts with the dots... / Continue →

    Now bite that shit like a hoagie. Remember the one-eyed shark baby found in Mexico that you ran to the comments as fast as you could to yell FAKE at? God I wish you'd been carrying scissors. Well it's real. The people I talk to on my cell phone at the bar to not look like s... / Continue →

    Remember those freaky-deaky human eye closeups taken by quantum chaos theoretical physicist/photographer (sweet combo!) Suren Manvelyan? Of course you do, you've got the memory of an elephant. Bear Grylls? He's got the turd of one and he's squeezing it to drink the juice out... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger (almost a C-cup!) version HERE. Breasts: I practically see them everywhere except where it really counts (right below a lady's collarbone). If my roommate gets drunk enough though he'll mash his together and eat Doritos from between them, so that's somet... / Continue →

    Hummingbirds -- easily one of my favorite kind of birds. Right up there with penguins, puffins, flamingos, toucans and owls. And while albino specimens (in this case, a ruby-throated hummer) aren't unheard of, it's rare to see such high quality photos of one taken in the wild... / Continue →

    This is a video of a praying mantis (Idolomantis Diabolica -- the Devil's Flower Mantis) showing off his ninja-ing skills on some dude's thumb. Honestly, I can't even believe this thing exists in real life. Of course I said the same thing about Double-Stuffed Oreos, and yet t... / Continue →

    This is a picture of recently discovered Protoanguilla palau, an eel that evolved into its current form around 200 million years ago, at the beginning of the Jurassic period. No word if they remember seeing the elusive Ceratosaurus' mating ritual, but I'd pay good money if one... / Continue →

    Seen here indicating that, yes, the One Ring was successfully destroyed, Mount Doom in Mordor Mount Etna in Italy blows some celebratory bubbles smoke rings. It is only the third documented case of volcanic smoke rings and is clearly an attempt to communicate with humans. *st... / Continue →

    Clouds: sometimes they look like dinosaurs. Other times they might look Yoda, Jabba the Hutt or a viking ship. And even OTHER times, they look like this this. A unique formation some meteorologists want to classify as a new type of cloud, and give a name. Give a name -- h... / Continue →

    If there was ever a time to go over a waterfall in a barrel, this is it. This is a video of a waterfall in southern Australia being battered by 75MPH winds and turning it into a water-rise. Get it? Because rise is the opposite of fall! Or is that spring? "Cut it out, GW." ... / Continue →

    So apparently there are several species of fungi from Brazilian rain forests that can take over an ant's brain, control it, and then kill it. Now I know what you're thinking, and no, you really shouldn't sell this info to a mad scientist. Originally thought to be a single spe... / Continue →
