This happened just off the dock for the Alcatraz Island ferry in downtown San Francisco. Waters surrounding the city are some of the most great white infested in the world.
It's Monday and we already got a winner for the coolest selfie of the week: Scuba diver Jason Neilus and a friendly seal in the Ferne Islands, UK. What about some belly rubs? Belly rubs are amazing, right seal? RIGHT? Right!
Some people found a baby seal crying for attention far away from the open sea, in the city of Sundsvall, in eastern Sweden. Apparently, instead of calling some emergency service, they just filmed her with their cellphones. A sad sign of the times, I guess. So eventually she was like "wtf, screw you humans," went back…
Wax seals have been used for millennia to guarantee a document's authenticity. If you got a letter with an intact seal, you could be assured that what you're reading was legit. The Top Secret USB does the same thing for your digital documents—literally.
This is Kiviak, a traditional winter foodstuff consumed by Greenlandic Inuits. It may look like a seal's carcass stuffed with whole, fermented birds because, well, it is. Trust me, this is one dish you'll want to eat outside.
Remember how Navy SEAL Team Six caught the entire raid on Bin Laden's compound on helmet cams? Yeah, well, that may not have happened. It's just one of multiple unexplained discrepancies from the raid.

I know, I know. The robotic seal is really just a robotic arm dressed in a furry seal outfit, but boy is it cute! And when you see it nail 99% of its shots, it's a better shooter than Larry Bird, Steve Nash and Ray Allen put together. [io9]
A caption of "no, I did not photoshop this" accompanied this silly picture and I didn't believe it. I still don't, but that's just because I have proof: The crop tool was used. Here's the original image:
Thanko has released a new range of animal-themed mice. Both Mac- and Windows-compatible, you can have one of three beasties—duck, seal and frog—floating inside. They look like bath toys and cost $12.50. By the way, what noise does a seal make? I need help. Gallery after the jump.
