So Long, Swimming: The GhostShark
So, you know how every now on then, especially if you live on either of the two coasts of America, you occasionally take a nice quick dip in the ocean, perhaps to surf or just to wade in some salt water that is apparently healthy for one’s body, mind and soul? Well, guess the fuck what? This whole time, while we’ve been swimming in the ocean, we’ve been swimming with this fucking thing:
Wired.com has the story. Apparently, this new thing was just discovered off the coast of Southern California – a neck of the woods where I live, by the way – just stone-cold swimming around. And this sucker has some weird sexual organs as well:
Perhaps the most intriguing feature of the newly described species, Hydrolagus melanophasma, is a presumed sexual organ that extends from its forehead called a tentaculum.
“They have this club on the top of their head with spikes. People think it’s used for mating,” Long said. “It’s like a little mace with little spikes and hooks and it fits into their forehead. It’s jointed and it comes out. We’re not sure if it is used to stimulate the female or hold the female closer.”
You can follow the link to read the rest of the story, but I think I’m good. The picture was enough to keep me land-locked for the foreseeable future.
Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you?
Let's face it. Girl's don't make it easy for you. She will often send mixed signals leaving you unable to tell if she is being friendly or flirty. If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment. Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
Here is a simple and innocent move that will instantly tell you if you're in the friend zone, or if she's waiting for you to kiss her.
