    Scientists recently discovered a new species of fish after lowering a camera and research equipment to a depth of 8,143-meters (26,716-feet, ~5.05-miles) in the Marianas Trench. This is video of that fish. It looks kind of like the ghost of a bird. And perhaps it IS the ghos... / Continue →

    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 →

    This is a video of Walter the labrador speeding down the path from a beach house in Sicily towards the water as fast as he can. Apparently swimming in the sea is his favorite pastime. The last five seconds of the video brought me such happiness. Like, you can SENSE his joy. ... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger version HERE. This is a map that shows what country is directly across the ocean from you, provided you're on the beach somewhere in North or South America. It's kinda cool that in some places in Chile you can swim all the way around the world without hi... / Continue →

    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 →

    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 →

    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 →

    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 →
