Look at This Well-Dressed Monkey of the Day
Have you met IKEA Monkey, the 7-month-old runaway primate dressed in a shearling coat that was found casually wandering around a Toronto IKEA store yesterday? According to the National Post, the monkey was spotted by staff members in the store’s upper parking lot after escaping out of the cage and the car belong to its (now former) owners. This picture (shown left) was subsequently posted online by Bronwyn Page via Twitter, where the fashionable simian has already become a meme of sorts.
Nice Structure of the Day
Sky Stack is an installation art that consists of five reflective rings wrapped around an old chimney rising above Clasen Business Park in Kassel, Germany. Designed by Hamburg-based architecture studio asdfg, the shiny stripes mirror the changing colors of the surrounding sky to create a magical illusion of a partitioned chimney tower floating in the air.
Frost Flowers Blooming in the Arctic Ocean
Here’s a magical view of “frost flowers” blooming over the surface of the Arctic Ocean. Frost flowers form when newly formed ice “sublimates,” or changes directly from a solid to a gas without going through the liquid stage in subzero air temperature (-22C or -7.6F).
Tumblr, pack your bags…

Look At This Thieving Octopus of the Day: Somehow he manages to disengage a bait canister from its cable ties while simultaneously wrangling a pajama catshark (really a dogfish) — holy schnikes!
Best part? The bluegrass twang soundtrack.
This is off the Bermuda Triangle, where 16+ ships washed up on a sand bar. The mystery is still unsolved
Actually the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle has been given a scientific explanation: methane vents which have been discovered in that region.
Methane reduces the density of water, causing ships that would normally float, to instead sink.
Methane, when in gas form, messes with the electrical components of aircraft, causing them to fail and sometimes fall right out of the sky.
Methane also causes the water to turn a ghostly greenish color, and the “ghost ships” reported to be seen are simply green reflections of the ships that scatter the bottom of the triangle.
Fucking science, man.
