AMAGAD OARFISH WHAT
Incase you didn’t know oarfish are very long deep sea fish that rarely if ever come to shallow water; if they do it’s usually because they’re about to kick the bucket.
kinda sad that they only are seen when they’re dying though.
What’s extra freaky is that in their natural habitat, they spend most of their time hovering straight up and down rather than swimming horizontally like we see here and expect from most other sea creatures.
There are other deep sea fish who swim that way, and anglerfish who swim completely upside down. Things get weird in a weightless void of total darkness.
Robotic recreation of the Kangaroo form put together by Festo to demonstrate energy-efficient movement (this was initially announced on April the 1st, but turns out to be real) - video embedded below:
With the BionicKangaroo, Festo has technologically reproduced the unique way a kangaroo moves. Like its natural model, it can recover the energy when jumping, store it and efficiently use it for the next jump.
On the artificial kangaroo, Festo intelligently combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology to produce a highly dynamic system. The stable jump kinematics plus the precise control technology ensure stability when jumping and landing. The consistent lightweight construction facilitates the unique jumping behaviour. The system is controlled by gestures.
Festo makes the coolest shit everyone needs to check them out NOW!

Cover for Stitches in my head #6
Believe it or not, in the 1930’s American had its own Nazi party. The German American Bund was a fascist organization founded by the German immigrant Heinz Spanknoble under the directions of Nazi Deputy Chief Rudolf Hess. The group was openly pro-Nazi and anti-Semitic. On the eve of World War II a Nazi group in America was about as popular as well… a Nazi group today.
One day in 1939 the Nazi’s at the German American Bund headquarters in New York were astonished to see a diminutive man place a ladder in front of their building and tear down the large sign at their doorway which read "No Dogs or Jews Allowed!". The Nazi’s wanted retribution, and faster than a Hitler salute the 5’4”, 140 pound little middle aged man found himself surrounded by 20 armed fascist thugs.
The diminutive little man was a Jewish immigrant named Joseph Greenstein. As a child Greenstein was forced to flee his home in Poland in the early 1900’s to escape a rash of anti-Semitic violence. Joe Greenstein, also known by the stage name “The Mighty Atom” made a fine living for himself in America as a circus strongman and professional wrestler. Earning himself the title “The Worlds Strongest Man”, Greenstein’s act included such feats as bending metal bars, straightening horseshoes, biting nails in half with his teeth, driving nails with his bare hands, changing a car tire without any tools, snapping chains wrapped around his chest through chest expansion, squat lifting a car, and resisting the takeoff of an airplane with his hair. He was also known for having apprenticed with strongmen from Russia and India, trained with the famous heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson, and once sustained a .38 caliber pointblank gunshot to the skull without being injured.
The Nazi’s intended to re-arrange Greenstein’s face, free of charge. One of the Nazi’s sneaked behind Greenstein and pinned his arms while three or four others proceeded to punch and kick him. The fight only went downhill for the Nazi’s from there. Moments later the police arrived on the scene to find 20 incapacitated men, and one uninjured Joseph Greenstein.
Greenstein was charged with aggravated assault, grievous bodily harm, and mass mayhem. However the judge dismissed the case due to disbelief that one man could take on 20. There was also a severe lack of evidence since 20 of the Nazi’s, many of whom were still in the hospital, refused to testify against him.
During World War II Greenstein did war bond tours for the US Military. He also trained police officers and soldiers in Jiu Jitsu and unarmed combat. Greenstein continued his act even into his old age. He was featured in the Guiness Book of World Records and Ripley’s Believe it or Not. On his off time he made and sold his own handmade coconut body soaps. His last act occurred on May 11th, 1977 at Madison Square Garden. Six months later he lost his final battle, succumbing to cancer at the age of 84.
