Ever heard of Dunkleosteus? It is one of the most terrifying fish ever to have roamed these Earth’s oceans. This bad boy lived 360-million years ago, and how it died out is a mystery to all. Once you hear about this badass you’ll know it’s unlikely he was killed off by predators. By studying fossils we’ve found some truly horrifying facts about the big guy.

To begin, he really was a BIG guy. 30-feet long to be precise. That’s a big fillet kids. But that’s not all my friends. The Dunkleosteus crushed its prey with its own skull. And get this – Dunkleosteus didn’t have a single tooth in its head. Instead, its entire skull was covered with bony plates that acted as armor and formed two long “fangs” – one each on the top and bottom jaw. Holy moly. Not scary enough for y’all? Those fangs were self-sharpening. As it opened and shut its jaws, the edges of its fangs rubbed together, creating friction. Over time, this kept them perfectly sharpened into razor-edges weapons of death. Is there anything that could make this prehistoric underwater dinosaur any more frightening? There is – its jaws were able to snap shut with 8000-pounds of bite force per square inch. Holy Mother of God, this thing made Jaws look like a guppy. Here are some glamour shots of ol’ Dunky. Check him out:

I still don’t know what the hell he’s talking about.

PS- Adelbert Ames can go to hell.

Technology & Science: An unusual visitor has been hanging out in the St. Lawrence River for the past three years: A Narwhal, more than 700-miles south of its usual range.  But the lone narwhal is not alone — it appears he has been adopted by a band of Belugas. Narwhals live in the icy waters of the Arctic, including those surrounding parts of Canada, Norway, Greenland and Russia. They typically don’t range any farther south than northern Quebec’s Ungava Bay, located south of the southern tip of Baffin Island. In the drone footage captured by GREMM researchers and posted on their website Whales Online, a pod of nine or 10 Belugas swim closely together near the surface, rolling and rubbing against each other. “They are in constant contact with each other,” Michaud said. “It’s a like a big social ball of young juveniles that are playing games.” Nobody is sure how the little Narwhal ended up so far south, but he’s been accepted by the group and has even picked up their habits.

Well, well, well. In a world divided by race, politics and religion, along come the animals to show us how it’s done. Different colored little dude comes rolling in one day, appearing a little weird with a 3-foot tusk jutting out of his head, but do you think these baby Belugas give a tuna’s ass? Hells to the nah. They accepted the little lost bro like he’s one of their own and now he’s swimming merrily along with his gang, just rolling and rubbing against each other like best bud Belugas do. Animals, man. Just telling Trump to suck it like you read about.

PS- Honestly, do you think the Belugas are talking behind the Narwhal’s back? “Hey Ned, what’s the deal with that horn sticking out of Barry’s head? Dude looks like Janet had sex with a swordfish or something.”

PPS- There are whales in the St. Lawrence River? What the hell?


Although children had been servants and apprentices throughout most of history, child labor reached new extremes during the Industrial Revolution. Children often worked long hours in dangerous factory conditions for very little money. Children were useful as laborers because their size allowed them to move in small spaces in factories or mines where adults couldn’t fit, children were easier to manage and control and perhaps most importantly, children could be paid less than adults. Appalling but true.

Not-So-Fun-Fact: In 1900, 18% of all American workers were under the age of 16.

In 1908 a true American hero named Lewis Hine picked up his camera and became the photographer for the National Child Labor Committee. For 10-years Lewis traveled across the country documenting child labor despite constant threats from factory owners. At the time the owners wanted to keep the immorality of child labor away from the public’s eye. However, Hine kept it up and never wavered. Sometimes he wore disguises (such as a fire inspector or a bible salesman) to snap pictures and interview the children working at factories or in the streets.  Lewis Hine used his camera as a tool for social commentary and reform, and it worked. Risking his own safety Hine snapped thousands of photographs with one goal – to end child labor. It took years, but in 1938 the Fair Labor Standards Act set national minimum wage and maximum hour standards for workers in interstate commerce and also placed limitations on child labor. Bottom line, next time one of your kids complain about taking out the garbage or mowing the lawn show them these photos. Wild to look at today, but an important to know and remember.

Take a look at that Ogre-Faced Spider, man. Dude has eyes the size of dimes. While most spiders have eight eyes but poor vision, the Ogre-Faced Spider is named for its bizarre, elongated face and enormous “posterior median eyes.” This little dude has exceptional night vision and clarity of view, enabling prey to be precisely tracked and targeted. Chills, man. Want more? This guy is the answer to a human net fisherman, brothers and sisters. With special hairs on its legs and remarkable dexterity, Ogre-Faced Spiders weave a unique, net-shaped structure instead of a typical web. The net is held between the four front legs and hurled upon passing insects that are either flying or walking. W-h-u-u-u-u-u-t? The flying prey are captured in a backward flinging motion, while a walking insect is caught when the net is pushed down onto the unfortunate creature. Diabolical. Watch that video below to see the Ogre-Faced Spider throw that net like the badass he is. Anywho, Ogre-Faced Spider.

Sometimes when you’re way behind, everything in your body is telling you to quit. Here are 5 people who didn’t.

“From the depths of hell!”

From 5th to 1st in the last lap.

Ohio University’s Dave Wottle wins Olympic Gold in the 800-meter run.

And finally, the legendary comeback by the USA’s Billy Mills. “Look Mills! Look at Mills! LOOM AT MILLS!”

Listen, I have nothing but respect for this kid. Just battling that damn trash can like you read about. Kid took shot after shot, was knocked down, and still came up fighting. Seriously, that evil trash can was showing no mercy. No mercy whatsoever. In this case the trash can was taking out the kid, kids. But I dare say this kid gives me hope for our future. America salutes you, Trash Can Kid. Keep fighting the good fight.

Ladies and gentlemen, what you are witnessing is a true professional, a man at the highest level of his craft. This is the television equivalent of a hole-in-one, a perfect game, a masterpiece of art. Breathtaking really.

Looks like Cerberus as a puppy, guarding the gates of hell.

PS- In Greek mythology Cerberus (often called the “hound of Hades”) is a multi-headed dog that guards the gates of the Underworld to prevent the dead from leaving. Good times.

PPS- When you have to explain a joke it really does ruin it.

The one and only Freddie Mercury of Queen. He would have been 72 today. Legend has it that when Queen was trying out vocalists they told him they were planning to be the biggest band in England. His response?

“England? We’re going to be the biggest fucking band in the world.”

And he was right. Youngbloods, watch this video.

As a kid I could name every professional baseball player in the Major Leagues. Today, not so much. The damn games are too long and the players are wussies. Last year Indians pitcher Corey Kluber led the majors in complete games with 5. In 1968 Cardinal pitcher Bob Gibson had 28 and his arm didn’t fall off. Note to self: Write “Why I Don’t Watch Baseball Anymore” blog. Anyway, an exception is my man Adrian Beltre. Dude is eccentric like you read about. Below are two videos. In the first you’ll see that he absolutely hates to have his head touched. Because of this his teammates are always touching his damn head. In the second video you’ll see that he’s just a lighthearted goofball, enjoying the game like you’re supposed to. Love Adrian Beltre, man.

I have to admit Larry looked really happy to get that beer. On a related note, I definitely need to get a drone.

Stunningly beautiful? Sure. Amazing feat of architecture? No doubt. Cool tourist attraction? Hell yes. Titanic waste of water? Uh, probably.

PS- The people in the rooms below must have a really sucky view. 

PPS- They built this thing in 19-days. China, man.

PPPS- You just know when Trump gets a look at this thing he’ll have to have one in NYC. Maybe they can die the water orange.

Ok, maybe 10 or 12. Still a pissy day for all involved.

PS- Solid work by the camera guy there. Stood his ground while chaos ensued.

Brutality.

I have a few observations here. First of all, there are creek eels in New Zealand? That’s sort of freaky, bro. Secondly, people take their children to feed this writhing black mass of giant worms? Like, for recreation? The caption reads, “We were on an outing feeding Eels at Battle Hill Forest Park near Wellington, New Zealand.” Da hell? A family outing? Finally, those ducks give zero damns, amirite? Just mixing it up with those giant slime worms without pause. New Zealand, man. It’s like another planet or something.

What? Why? WHY? Why would anyone enjoy walking across this invitation to death? Wanna die? Sure, head on across, kids! The steps are only every two damn feet apart! Oh, and the bridges often have 100-mph winds! Woot!

PS- Seriously, nope.

Listen, I don’t know if this is a setup or not, maybe the drone operator and the guy on the wind turbine are buddies. What I do know is I don’t give a damn, that guy’s batshit crazy. He’s 200-feet up on a Wind Turbine in Rhode Island with no railing and one wobble of that thing or one gust of wind will send him over the edge where he deserves to be – squashed on the ground below. Idiots like this guy deserve what they get.

Update: Apparently this nutcase is a Benedictine Monk who went up there for “some solitude.” What the hell? Don’t they lock the doors to wind turbines in Rhode Island?

Eyy dere bud. Eyy dere bud.” I swear to God I was hoping that moose would turn around, make a charge, and crush that idiot’s windpipe with his moosive antlers. I mean massive. Good Lord he’s annoying. On a related note, damn that’s a big moose.

PS- Even though this was filmed in Alaska, it’s the most Canadian video ever.

PPS- I have friends that travel long distances to shoot beautiful creatures such as this. Doesn’t look like it would require much, you know, skill.

Check out Migaloo, man. Stunningly beautiful. Migaloo lives near Australia and was thought to be the only all white Humpback Whale in the world until amazing footage emerged of a 100% all white baby humpback calf. Seems Migaloo had been hitting the town, met a honey, and put the hump back in humpback whale. This new white whale is unofficially named Migaloo Jr. because all signs point to who the daddy is. Video of Migaloo Jr. can be seen below the photos of the original Migaloo. Anywho, Migaloo the Albino Humpback Whale.

Lord Jesus, Hooper, keep your head on a swivel. This is the latest reminder that without guns and stuff we’re definitely not at the top of the food chain.

Holy SHARK! Unreal video from @a_whiteshark !!!

On a related note . . .


There are so many things about this video to like I don’t know where to start. It’s too perfect. The guy’s wife pays a man to kill him for two grand, he thinks that price is way too low, he’s a used car salesman because of course he is, that hair, that beard, he’s sweating like hell, the video is just perfect. Seriously, this guy is not upset his wife tried to have him murdered, he’s upset she didn’t take it seriously enough. “You get what you pay for.” That’s comedy gold.

Otters are badass, man. They will team up and take your ass down, whether you’re a freakin’ monkey, crocodile, jaguar, otters don’t care, man. In our first video we have some monkeys who are harassing the otters at a zoo, until the otters had enough and went gangsta all up on one of the monkeys. Seriously, they drown that dude.

Next we have a Caiman who tangles with a family of otters. Big mistake.

Finally we have a family of otters giving zero damns about a jaguar in their midst. Get the hell outta here, jaguar.

Listen, I don’t want to sound all cold-hearted and whatnot, but there are several things in life I will not do, among them:

Ride a bus in India.

Go to the beach in Somalia.

Go hiking in Syria.

Get on a carnival ride in Pakistan.

Seriously, I’m always reading about these so-called innocent hikers who accidentally cross the border into Iraq or something and then end up whining to our government to save their ass. Listen, if you venture into a 3rd World country  you’re on your own, kids. And for God’s sake don’t get on a Pakistani carnival ride. Pretty sure OHSA isn’t on duty over there.

Wait for it. It’s worth it.
