    This is a series of Batman villains imagined as cartoon sharks by artist Jeff Victor. Why? No clue. I already told you -- I'm tired of asking questions. Some people just get these ideas in their heads and run with them. Me? I only run with scissors. Jk jk, that's dangero... / Continue →

    This is a 10-second video of a great white shark breaching the surface and taking to the air to catch a seal decoy. Highlights of the video include the shark jumping, the woman squealing, and dude's 'BOOYAKASHA' at the end. Also, I'm not sure we should be feeding sharks fake ... / 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 →

    Because nobody wants to get eaten by a shark (although I have fantasized about it before), 320 sharks known to lurk in the waters off Western Australia have been fitted with tags that will send a tweet from the Surf Life Saving Twitter account if they swim within a kilometer of... / Continue →

    Because Mother Nature clearly wants us to wage war, this is a rare two-headed ray found in Australia. I have friends who would eat that just how it is. "Friends! Good one, GW." You're a bully. If you look at the underside the mouths kind of look like the two comedy and tr... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the 3-foot spiny dogfish shark that scientists were in the process of reeling in when it was swallowed by a much larger sand tiger shark. What the hell, Mother Nature? "It's the circle of life, bro." Don't call me bro, I'm not your bro -- you know you've be... / Continue →

    This is a line of wetsuits that have been designed to confuse a shark's vision so they won't take a bite out of you. The first two are designed to make a diver 'invisible' to sharks in the water, while the third was designed to make you look like an old-timey prison inmate and... / Continue →

    WARNING: Bro lets out a solid 'HOLY SH!T' at the 0:22 mark. This is a video of kayak fisherman Isaac Brumaghim just doing his thing, reeling in a fish, when Chompy the shark breaches the water and tries to steal it from him. That's rude. I don't care how hard some marine bio... / Continue →

    This is an artist's recreation of Helicoprion, a 270-million year old shark that roamed the ocean preying on other marine life WITH ITS FULL 360-DEGREE SPIRAL BUZZSAW OF TEETH. Now? Now it's extinct except for in our nightmares starting tonight. "When the animal closed its... / Continue →

    This is a video of 'shark whisperer' Ocean Ramsey (whose mom is rumored to be a mermaid) swimming with a great white shark off the coast of Mexico. At one point she even grabs a hold of its dorsal fin and gets pulled along for a little while. The actions of a sane person? No... / Continue →

    As proof you shouldn't always go with the lowest bidding contractor, a giant shark tank holding 33-tons of water recently broke inside a Chinese shopping mall, injuring 15 patrons and killing all the sharks. So, what was it -- shoddy craftsmanship, or a shark escape gone wron... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a group of friends who were out wakeboarding in the ocean when one dude pushes another guy overboard WITH A BIG-ASS SHARK NEARBY. Now I have no concept of what kind of that shark that was, or if it's even dangerous to humans, but it was definitely LARG... / Continue →

    This is Papa Mau, a wave-powered robotic boat that managed to autonomously navigate its way 9,000 miles from San Francisco to Australia over the course of the last year instead of being eaten by a shark like I begged King Neptune to make happen. IT'S SUSHI NIGHT TONIGHT, NEPTU... / Continue →

    These are some shots of a shark breaching the water to catch a seal snapped off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa by photographer Dana Allen. I'm not sure how long he (he -- Dana's a he) had to sit around waiting for a shark to fly, but maybe it happens all the time. Now i... / Continue →

    If it makes you feel any better, I really hate myself for that title. NO I DON'T EITHER THAT TITLE IS THE TITS. These are some "sharks eating your feet" socks created by Lisa Grossman (aka the Tsarina of Tsocks). If you're keeping count, that makes TWO sock posts in one day.... / Continue →

    A two-foot leopard shark fell from the sky onto the 12th hole at the San Juan Hills Golf Club in California, and was promptly put in a bucket of plain water by a bunch of idiots, who then added kitchen salt to make the water more sea-like, until somebody came up with the idea t... / Continue →

    In "dammit, Japan" news comes a humanoid robot that can mimic the freestyle, backstroke and breast-stroke swimming styles of a human. Why? Presumably so when the terrestrial robots herd us all into the water, there will already be some aquatic ones there ready to drown us. W... / Continue →

    Because it's Friday and my brain checked out yesterday (plus two books from the library and never returned them!), this is a video of a shark stealing an underwater photographer's camera in the Bahamas. Personally, I would have punched that shark in the nose. Of course, it lo... / Continue →

    This is a bench that, when sat upon, makes it look like a giant shark is about to eat you. Don't worry though, it's fake -- that isn't a real shark coming out of the pavement! Hard to believe, I know, it's just a really, really good looking fake. *pointing in mouth* This fr... / Continue →

    To celebrate getting a certain amount of Facebook fans in a certain amount of time, Wicked Lasers promised laser fanatics they'd attach a laser to a shark. And this is it. A lemon shark with a 50mW green laser attached to its dorsal fin. When reached for comment, King Neptun... / Continue →
