  1. Discovery’s Shark Week Will Kick Off With Another Bullshit “Documentary” Instead of Real Science

    Discovery Channel, stahp.

    Remember last year when the Discovery Channel lied about their Shark Week megalodon movie being a documentary? Looks like they're trying to one-up themselves this year with another "documentary," and they just owned up to being behind the above video as a marketing ploy with Nissan.

  2. Why the Heck Did Discovery Channel Re-Air the Fake Megalodon Documentary Again?

    Guys. Can we not do this?

    Last night, we here at Geekosystem saw a sudden jump in nighttime traffic due to so many people googling "megalodons." Did the Discovery channel re-air that awful fake documentary they? Yes, yes they did -- at midnight EST on Sunday night. Why.

  3. 5 Creatures That Would Make Perfect Subjects For Fake Discovery Channel Documentaries

    If the Discovery Channel says that unicorns are real then they have to be, right?

    Now that Shark Week is over and the outrage over Megalodon is winding down, Discovery Channel is going to need some new creatures to make fictional documentaries about. Since mermaids have been done already, might we suggest some of these animals as subjects?

    Here's a fact: Megalodons are hella awesome.

    As you all know by now, Discovery Channel ruined Shark Week forever by airing a fake documentary about fake Megalodon sightings by fake people.

  5. Internet Officially Mad at Shark Week for Airing a Fake Megalodon Documentary

    One could even say that it jumped the... no, no. I'm not going to say it.

    If you happened to tune in to the beginning of Discovery Channel's Shark Week programming last night, you might have caught an unusual documentary about a group of scientists trying to catch a megalodon off the coast of South Africa. Why's it unusual? Because megalodons have been extinct for over 2 million years. Yeah, that'll piss off a few nerds.

  7. Giant Squid Footage is Actually of a Giant Squid, And It’s Apparently Silver

    Last month we reported that a film crew from Discovery Channel had captured footage of a giant squid at home in the inky blackness of the ocean's depths -- the place where all the most horrid nightmares are born -- for an episode of the cable network's Curiosity series. Since we're inclined to take a "pics or it didn't happen" view of the world over here, it's safe to say that we were all dubious of the claim, especially when past experience has shown that such overhyped discoveries are often run-of-the-mill colossal squid that don't even merit a second glance. Today, though, we're delighted to report that our cynicism was, for once, unfounded. The team of giant squid enthusiasts behind last month's bold claim has released this photo of the legendary aquatic beast that caused superstitious vikings and pirates to soil themselves at the mere mention of it -- we assume.

  9. PenguinCam is Livestreaming Socially Awkward Penguins [Livestream]

    In order to celebrate Frozen Planet, a joint effort by the BBC and the Discovery Channel, the Discovery Channel and SeaWorld San Diego have teamed to stream SeaWorld's exhibit of socially awkward penguins: "Penguin Encounter". Well, it's technically an exhibit of "regular" penguins. But still, there's bound to be some awkwardness. The stream is going on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until April 30th, so there's a lot of penguin to be watched. Several penguins have already attempted to hatch the camera, which looks a bit like a big black egg, so there are doubtlessly more hijinks in store. Be sure to check it out and check back every now and then, who knows what you might see.

  10. Mythbusters Hosts Will Produce, Judge a Rube Goldberg Competition Show

    Don't Try This At Home

    If you like Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, you're going to be very happy about this: the Mythbusters hosts have announced that they'll be producing a new show for Discovery called Unchained Reaction. The duo will serve as judges on the new show, which will pit two teams against each other while they build the most awesome Rube Goldberg device. And it looks like ... yes. Yes, I read that right: there might be guillotines.
