Did you know moray eels have secondary jaws just like Alien xenomorphs?

Moray eels are the closest earthly thing you will get to the xenomorphs in the Alien series. Like the Giger beasts, this ambush predator has developed a terrifyingly efficient set of secondary grasping jaws to aid in yanking the eel's meals down its gullet. This video from UC Davis show it in action. » 4/04/14 9:16pm 4/04/14 9:16pm

The best way to catch up with Game of Thrones before Season 4 starts? By watching this amazing supercut of every single on-screen death in the series so far. Made by Digg Video, it's a bloody gore-y mix of swords, spears, arrows, bare hands, etc. ripping apart flesh and ending human life. There's a total of 5,179… » 4/04/14 7:59pm 4/04/14 7:59pm

Otter kills and eats a young alligator after violent struggle

Thought crocodiles and alligators were the kings of the river? Otters and pythons don't agree at all. This image sequence from the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Reserve—spotted by PourMeCoffee—shows an otter killing a juvenile gator. Hell yeah. Otters are not that cute when they are pissed off, right? » 3/06/14 8:40pm 3/06/14 8:40pm

World's oldest cheese found on the chest of a 3,500-year-old mummy

There's nothing quite like a nice, aged cheese, but even the most adventurous cheese connoisseurs would be put off by a recent discovery from an an ancient Chinese tomb. Archaeologists uncovered perfectly preserved mummies whose chests were sprinkled with extra aged, 3,5000-year-old cheese—the world's oldest cheese by… » 2/27/14 10:58pm 2/27/14 10:58pm

These sausages made with baby poop taste great and they're superhealthy

The cured pork meat and fat sausages above—a type of thin salchichón called fuet in Catalonia, Spain—are truly delicious, with a wonderfully intense umami flavor. They are also excellent for your health, as good as having a yogurt, because they are full of probiotics. Oh, they are also made with poop. Baby poop. » 2/24/14 10:31pm 2/24/14 10:31pm

Seeing a kiss from inside the mouth is pretty damn gross

Yikes. Never kiss anyone again, people. Because while you're politely closing your eyes and giving someone a smooch, your slimy mouth is inhaling another set of lips in what looks like squirmy worm sex on a stained enamel bed. It's gross. So gross. Okay, maaaybe a little bit sexy in a vomit-inducing, I feel weird sort… » 2/06/14 7:59pm 2/06/14 7:59pm

What 3000 calories looks likes in everyday food

When you eat a big meal like a Thanksgiving Dinner or feast during the holidays or gorge out on Super Bowl party platters and leftovers, you're probably eating a lot more than what your body is used to. Some sources say those heavy party dinners can range anywhere from 3,000 to 4,500 calories. That's quite a belly full … » 2/04/14 9:13pm 2/04/14 9:13pm

Staring at these spiders straight in the eyes is sucking my soul away

I can't do it. These photographs by photographer Jimmy Kong are absolutely fantastic in capturing the venomous detail of spiders in their habitat. They look positively alien and almost peaceful. But don't you dare think that. Not for a second. Because once you think these fur ball mini aliens come in peace, the spiders … » 1/23/14 10:08pm 1/23/14 10:08pm

Beatboxing in slow motion looks disgustingly explicit

Almost everything looks cooler when it's filmed in slow motion, right? Explosions, athletic feats of achievement, glass breaking, water pouring, fireworks shooting, highlights happening, fighting and pretty much everything else in the world. Except one thing. Beatboxing. It looks positively explicit in slow motion. » 1/15/14 7:33pm 1/15/14 7:33pm

The secret anatomy of toys and animated movie characters

I love the work artist/designer/mad doctor Jason Freeny. His Moist Productions shop has been showing us the fascinating humanoid anatomy of toys, animated characters and other objects for years. His new creations have reached new awesomely gross heights. Here's a collection of some of his masterworks: » 1/14/14 6:56am 1/14/14 6:56am

This clear purple sea creature is proof the ocean is where aliens hide

Say hi to the Portuguese man o' war. It's purple, it's clear, it looks like a balloon, it's painfully venomous, but it's not a jellyfish and you wouldn't have to convince me too hard that it's from an alien world. This Portuguese man o' war, which other than being a fantastic name, washed up on a beach to freak people… » 12/31/13 7:34pm 12/31/13 7:34pm

This pretty pink flower is actually a mantis that strangles bugs

Be careful when you go around smelling flowers now, you never know when that pretty pink thing is actually a mantis looking to strangle your nostrils to death. Like this Orchid Mantis. It looks like a perfect pink orchid but is actually a mantis in disguise that strangles the hell out of its prey. » 12/27/13 12:08am 12/27/13 12:08am

Ants can incredibly flow like liquid or bunch together into a solid

The New York Times has a great little short about ants, specifically their ability to both flow like a liquid and become a solid ball. It's kind of gross but also pretty awesome in how twisted the duality is. Look at it above. On the left, it's a thick, syrupy liquid. On the right, it's a tight rubber ball. » 12/20/13 1:10am 12/20/13 1:10am

Watch a crab climb out of its old shell like a mutant

Crabs are red alien water tarantulas who regenerate like mutants. Just look at this crab literally climb out of its old shell and toss away that used exoskeleton like it's a dirty pair of pants. So gross but so cool. I kind of wish I could shed skin like this. It'd probably be the most refreshing feeling ever. » 11/21/13 7:52pm 11/21/13 7:52pm
