    This is a photo from David Littschwager of seawater magnified 25x (showing all the crab larvae and marine worms that are invisible to the naked eye). Just like the title says. So if you thought this post was going to be about superheroes, you are a terrible at interpreting ti... / Continue →

    If you haven't seen it already, this is a video of a dolphin stampede and humpback whale migration caught by aerial drone cameras operated by Captain Dave's Whale and Dolphin Safari. Apparently Captain Dave sunk one drone after flying it into the boat's antenna. Captain Ron n... / 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 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 →

    Ever wanted to watch a diver knock over a stack of rocks with an air bubble ring? Well you are IN LUCK, because that's exactly what this is. Unfortunately, when reached for comment Ariel was devastated to find out someone knocked over her art installation. Now might not be th... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to know where the Galapagos Islands used to be. SPOILER: No clue. This is the Pangea supercontinent imagined with current national borders. Was anybody else surprised to see that the US used to be neighbors with Canada and Mexico? ... / Continue →

    This is a video from a group of divers off Kona, Hawaii on a manta ray watching expedition when a bottlenose dolphin with a fishing line in its mouth and wrapped around a pectoral fin comes to ask for help. Thankfully, one of the divers is able to successfully remove the line.... / Continue →

    Using a manned submersible, a group of scientists recently captured footage of a nearly 60-foot long giant squid in its natural habitat for the first time. The video is going to be shown on the Discovery channel January 27th and I'm already predicting it will be the most watch... / Continue →

    RETROACTIVE WARNING: Giant mystery eyeball. Also, potential Slimer tattoo. A man in Florida stumbled across this giant mysterious eyeball while metal-detecting for buried pirate treasure or whatever, and now scientists are hard at work trying to determine where it came from.... / Continue →

    These are Jetovators. Jetovators are like the water-jetpacks we've seen in the past, except you ride them like a motorcycle. You know, because some guys like to feel that power between their legs. Personally, I'm happy with the feeling of my penis ping-ponging back and forth... / Continue →

    This is an hour and a half documentary from the Animal Planet that none of you are going to watch, highlighting evidence that mermaids are real. Namely, a recording of mermaids talking to dolphins, as well as the body of one recovered from the stomach of a great white. I'd be... / Continue →

    This is a rarely seen Deepstaria enigmatica jellyfish spotted some 5,000-feet below the ocean's surface by an unmanned sub inspecting a deep-sea drill off the coast of the UK. You've just gotta watch it to appreciate how freaky it is. It looks kinda like...there's a leak in t... / Continue →

    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 →

    In news that may blow some people's minds (and to commemorate the the 100 year anniversary of the disaster), authorities re-released these photos they believe depict the remains of one unfortunate Titanic passenger who came to rest near the stern. Wow, really hard to believe c... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse of the world's ocean currents from June 2005 to December 2007. It's pretty trippy. Like watching your own face melt off in the mirror of a Cracker Barrel bathroom because you were tired of fighting that one piece of ham that was trying to sneak off your p... / Continue →

    "Thank you, SKYNET. Thank you for giving me life." Alternatively, "TOUCHDOWN, HOKIES!" So apparently my alma mater Virginia Tech is in cahoots with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory to develop and test a robot capable of throwing grenades to extinguish fires. Granted I th... / Continue →

    Seen here falling for the ol' fish head on a hook trick, the world's first documented hybrid shark stares into the camera with a googly eye. Scientists believe the species is humping around in direct response to climate change, which I believe. It's too f***ing hot in here, I... / Continue →

    The Flyboard from Zapata Racing is basically a water powered jetpack similar to this one that this guy used to almost eat a dock, except for your feet. So, in summary, exact same thing but strapped to your feet. I guess it's all a matter of personal taste, are you more of a j... / Continue →

    This is a video of an octopus trying to carry a crab from one tidal pool to another at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach, California. He's not really the best land-walker I've ever seen, but he is trying to carry a crab half the time, and it's not easy struttin' that... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a girl on a surfboard watching whales feed off the coast of Santa Cruz, California when she almost becomes a snack herself. Wonderful news, really *adds whales to 'list to things to be afraid of in the ocean' between Spongebob's friend Patrick and fish... / Continue →
