  1. Google Is Trying to Stop Sharks From Eating the Internet

    Repeat after me: "The Internet is friends—NOT food."

    Undersea fiber optic lines keep the Internet humming along at a steady pace, but that humming has apparently been attracting sharks. Now, Google has to go back and reinforce some if its more than 100,000 miles of fiber optic cables so that sharks don't eat the Internet.

  2. Discovery Is Misleading Scientists To Be Interviewed for Shark Week Pseudoscience

    Reminder: Real sharks are incredibly interesting.

    Last year Discovery got on the Internet's bad side by presenting a fictional story about a fictional search for a fictional megalodon, but it turns out they like it there. They're continuing their shady pseudoscience practices and io9 is reporting that they're misleading scientists to get interviews for their fake Shark Week documentaries.

  3. 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.

  4. Sharknado Fans: Want A Chance To Show Off Your Artwork At This Year’s San Diego Comic-Con?

    Enough said.

    As fans of the original Sharknado surely know, the world's strangest weather phenomenon will be blowing onto the SyFy channel for a second time July 31st.

  5. So We Know What’s Been Eating Those Great White Sharks, And Yes, It’s Worthy Of The Syfy Channel

    It's not Sharknado - but it's close.

    Yesterday we told you about a terrifying sea monster that's been rampaging along the coast of Australia, eating great white sharks to death. We (and the the internet's hive mind) speculated that the shark-eating monster could really have been anything from Godzilla to an underwater Sharknado. Now, we think we have some answers.

  6. Something in the Ocean Is Eating Great White Sharks, Perhaps a Tornado of Other Sharks?

    Or, wait, would that technically be a shark-waterspout, then?

    Tagging ocean animals and tracking their movements can teach us a lot about the great unknown right here on our very own planet. It can also help us understand marine animal populations, their migration habits, and when they're being attacked by giant, untold horrors from the murky depths. This falls under that last category.

  7. Your Speedo Is Not Hydrodynamic Enough, Wear 3D Printed Shark Skin Instead

    "3D-printed synthetic skin-nado" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Sharks can swim incredibly fast due to "denticles" on their skin, which are microscopic scales that cover their entire body. As puny humans, we are inherently jealous of sharks and covet their underwater skills. So a group of researchers got together to make their own version of denticles, just to stick it to sharks. Those stupid, majestic sharks.

  8. Show Your Love For Sharks With LEGO CUUSOO Jaws Set

    What do you say when a shark grabs your leg? (Think about it.)

    I would not mind having it within my ability to recreate the goriest showdown in the world's best shark movie wherever and whenever I please. Thankfully a LEGO CUUSOO JAWS: Orca's Last Stand set might be dunun-duning into reality soon--but first the creator will need a bigger fan base to make it happen.

  9. Here’s What It Looks Like When a Hooked Shark Drags Your Kayak 12 Miles out to Sea

    This video is ripe for "Let It Go" parodying.

    Adam Frisk recently uploaded this video of an estimated 11-foot hammerhead dragging him 12 miles out into the ocean from the coastline. Frisk could have let go of the fishing rod at any time, but maybe he was too distracted by the second hammerhead following him to remember that.
