Jesus Shark

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Shark, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting shark-life.

Now imagine that video with a shark.

Scientists have confirmed the second case of a "virgin birth" in a shark.

"Hi mista baby shawk! I has a daddy, do you has a daddy?"

In a study reported Friday in the Journal of Fish Biology, scientists said DNA testing proved that a pup carried by a female blacktip shark in a Virginia aquarium contained no genetic material from a male.

I find it weird that the blacktip shark couldn't find a male shark to knock her up. You know what they say: Once you go blacktip, you never go back, Skip.

"This first case was no fluke," Demian Chapman, a shark scientist and lead author of the second study, said in a statement. "It is quite possible that this is something female sharks of many species can do on occasion."

How does one get to be a shark scientist? What an awesome title. "Nerd, you're a scientist!" "Back the fuck up, bitch. I'm a shark scientist." "Oh snap!" ...Or whatever. This whole asexual thing sounds familiar...why does this sound... familiar...



I've always simply said that life, uh... finds a way.

Hi Doctor Malcolm! Thanks for that little visit. Anyway, I'd continue with the article but the idea is really way better than the reality. It's mostly science-y and pretty boring. What I would like to do now, however, is to continue with the posting pictures pictures of random shit found when googling. Here are some select choices from "Jesus shark":

And for no particular reason at all: some bloopers from the bbc Office.
