Five Freaky Friday Facts (#1)

I did not run across too articles this week that made me go wow! but here are a few that prove fact is often stranger than Fantasy. (or fiction, whichever you prefer.)


~~~Technology~~~

From Reuters:

Fish-inspired vessel joins Brazil offshore oil boom


~~~Science~~~

You have to see to believe this.

From io9:

Behold, the Clearest Photo of a Sunspot Ever Taken


~~~Not really a Wow! More like a Cool!~~~ 

From Paperback Writer:

Texterize It


~~~Archaeology-History~~~

From Discovery News:

Coffin at King Richard III Site Holds...Another Coffin

Now if it took 8 people just to lift one lid. I wonder how many it took to carry 1 or both coffins. Talk about built to last....

~~~Humor~~~

And last but not least. this one made me giggle.

From Reuters:

Dead shark found on New York City subway


Not sure if this was a tribute to Shark Week (honestly I think Discovery is being paranoid) or a dig at Sharknado (I find this to be more likely) but either way somebody had a bit of fun. Yes I know, the poor shark. I love animals as much if not more than most people and I'm sorry for the shark, but I still think it is funny.

  1. I'm particularly interested in the archeology in the Richard III article. The sunspot is pretty neat, too. {Smile}
