Starring Jason "Jawsome" Statham.
Wow. We really are living in a special age. According to Variety, Jason Statham has been cast as the lead in Meg, which is a pretty adorable title for a movie about prehistoric jumbo sharks.Read More
You're a shark. Sharks are winners, and they don't look back because they have no necks. Necks are for sheep.
The next time you're walking down the sidewalk and feel the need to get out of some dude's way, do me a favor: don't.Read More
Say hello to that round mound of pound.
Have you ever known true passion? True joy? Watch this video of a leather-vest-and-shark-tooth-necklace-wearing
Fin Vin Diesel showing off some Street Shark merchandise at a 1994 toy fair, and then judge if you have ever truly been swayed by such purity of intent, such unfaltering devotion.
The Mary Sue is extremely pumped to present Eugenie Shark, a 3-part webcomic by Nicole Marie Burton about Japanese-American ichthyologist Eugenie Clark, "a pioneer for both women in STEM and the study of marine life, particularly sharks."Read More
The internet was busy doing three things during the Super Bowl halftime show yesterday. One was comparing Katy Perry's flame outfit to literally every other character who ever wore flames. The next was talking about how ADORABLE those freaking sharks were. And the third was asking who Missy Elliot was. Let's talk about this, shall we?Read More
So imagine you're just walking along the beach one day, maybe picking up seashells and just taking in the majesty of the universe, when you come across this thing.Read More
My shark week seems to go on forever too, Discovery. I feel ya.
Much of the country may still be bowed under winter's relentless tyranny, but it's never too early to make plans for summer--especially if you're in need of a public relations boost after failing to stuff a live man down an anaconda's gullet.Read More
Dr. Simon Oliver and A. E. Bicskos Kaszo captured what's thought to be the first or one of the first photos of an oceanic shark giving birth.Read More
Jawsome or not jawsome?
Oh, it's not a "shark robot," you say? It's called the "GhostSwimmer?" Well, consider me reassured.Read More
Hang in there.
NOM NOM NOM.Read More
There's no time to sleep, Robin!
I've got to get me one of those.Read More
All I want... all I need!
The world is still waiting for a realistic, official, dancing Groot toy.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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. And in honor of Sharknado 2: The Second One, The Asylum is offering artists an opportunity to showcase their work at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
"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.Read More
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.Read More
