Hanging from the side of an iceberg by their hind claws, a polar bear and her cub search for penguins feeding in the frigid Arctic waters below.

Classic polar bear prank, akin to a snipe hunt. “Look, son. If you even think you see one, go for it, because OMG LOOK THERE’S ONE RIGHT NOW!”

Every State ranked by how miserable its winters are (and Alaska is NOT first).

Ran across the term “gundecking” recently, and inferred that it was something the Navy frowns upon. Don’t do it.

A pile of half-eaten specimens of the small camelid Poebrotherium show that the entelodont Archaeotherium was in the habit of grabbing these little herbivores, bringing them back to a cache site, and consuming them. Or, at least one Archaeotherium was doing this, anyway.

How to levitate.

Do not enter void.

Dogs knocking down kids.

From the Amusing, Sad & Pathetic Department:
Montana Natural Man Ernie Wayne TerTelgte was arrested for fishing without a license (and resisting arrest) and defended himself in court. Watch the video, then read this.

THIS is just wrong. He thinks he’s a woman who believes she’s a snake. [Warning: Extreme body modifications NSFK.]

Think you’re good at spotting spelling/grammatical errors? I thought I was, but I flunked this test.

The only time Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy appeared together on television was on Ralph Edwards‘ show “This Is Your Life” in 1954.

If you like our Sunday potpourri of miscellaneous links, the entire archive is here. That in itself should keep you busy for about a week. If there’s something you’d like to see more or less of, lemme know.

Top image found here, via here. Those are Hell Pigs eating proto-camels somewhere in North America. They stood 4 feet tall, weighed up to 930 lbs, were fast, and were related to whales, not pigs. In other words, they were ancient land sharks.

The Apache Revolver (ca. 1869)

The Apache Revolver is the Swiss Army knife of guns. Designed in the early 1900’s by the french gang Les Apaches this weapon was easily concealed and it is said that one bullet would always be left out of the chamber so as to not shoot yourself while it was in your pocket. Its range was very limited due to its lack of a barrel but it was an effective tool due to everything it could do, this weapon could shoot, cut and hit and could be easily folded up and placed in your pocket. Sheer Genius.”

The Wikipedia entry contradicts that description. This multi-purpose weapon was presumably designed by Louis Dolne of Belgium in 1860, went into production in 1869, and was discontinued by 1900. Here’s a quick video.
