We arrived too late for it, but our guide told us that is was really nice. I think I’ll fast-forward past the introduction of dignitaries etc, and go straight for the show, “An Ode to Water”.
LOL, “I’m going to go for something for a girl”. Well nicely put, Sir, that must be covering at least 90% of the entire fashion industry :-D Here is that bolero ‘hat’ for you. Yes, I had to look it up.
Each day an average of 10 unintentional drownings occur in the U.S., whereof 7 are adults. Despite their lack of swimming ability, many adults still venture out into lakes, oceans, rivers and swimming pools for recreational activities, and that’s why a new online swim community is launching today on www.swimmunity.com, to bring greater awareness to the need for adult swim lessons.

Jellyfish are fascinating, yes, but apparently really difficult to keep in a traditional aquarium, because they get sucked into the filtration. So Alex Andon has designed the Desktop Jellyfish Tank, where a circular flow keeps the jellyfish centered in the middle, with colored LEDs to make it really beautiful. You can support the project here on Kickstarter. Via gizmag.com.

Behold the Bubble Babba Challenge, an annual event from St. Petersburg area where participant swim down the wild Vuoksa River while clinging to inflatable sex dolls. We’ve seen this before in Lithuania, where the participants though took better care covering up their partners (Warning, don’t go searching if you cannot handle the occasional full frontal sex doll nudity). Via failblog.org. Looks a bit rough, especially when seen from the perspective of a struggling sex doll
They did that stunt one time here in the Faroes, serving live Norway lobster at a fish fair, resulting in a police report. Delicious or not, I would never. Ever. Video found here. Ate live shrimp tonight with brown butter emulsion. Crazy but delicious!
