You will all find a broadband connection capable of downloading this 100mb movie file, and you will watch it. Trust me. It's worth it.

The new species has been known since 1990, but it was tough to collect, and it provides a good example of commonly encountered but largely unstudied species in the deep sea environment. According to Daly, the eggs of B. daphneae are yolky, and should therefore be long lived. Theoretically, they should also be capable of fairly broad dispersal on deep ocean currents, maybe even caught in a hydrothermal updraft to be cast even more widely. This would account for their broad distribution. Ten or more giant anemones can be seen in a 'typical' eight hour dive.

If you look at it upside down, it's like it's sticking its tounge out at you.
This is from the Wired Game Blog, and it amused me:
Topic: PC Gaming
Most sites just talked about the mod for Oblivion that renders the female characters topless. GameVideos went out and did something about it, damn it.
Click here (mild adult content, sort of, really it's just a few polygonal nipples) to experience the effects of the mod for yourself. Really, it's, uh... vaguely disturbing. Moreso than it is erotic. Unless you're really into checking out the nipples on a fish woman. Or enjoy seeing a half-naked woman rampage through a city beating people with what seems to be a wooden club.
So actually it's probably very erotic for some people.

Trailer for the "Call of Cthulhu" Silent film, from Cthulhu Lives: H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society
It's $20 on DVD and looks amazing. We'll be picking this one up soon, I think.
In the notes on the DVD, there is strong evidence that these people are all stark raving mad:
"To appeal to Lovecraft fans throughout across the globe, this DVD provides intertitles in 24 languages including: Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Euskera, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Lithuanian, Luxmbourgish, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Welsh. These aren't just subtitles either — they are the real title cards rendered tastefully in each language. If you thought the story was scary before, wait until you see it in Welsh!"
How does "Ia! Ia! Cthulhu F'taghn!" translate in welsh, anyway?
But for now, look at the cute little squid! Awww! He looks surly.
