A little information on Jellyfish Lake…

Jellyfish Lake is located on Eli Malk island in the Republic of Palau. Twelve thousand years ago these jellyfish became trapped in a natural basin on the island when the ocean receded. With no predators amongst them for thousands of years, they evolved into a new species that lost most of their stinging ability as they no longer had to protect themselves. They are pretty much harmless to humans although some people with very sensitive skin may get a minor sting from them. If you are allergic to jellyfish you should wear a wetsuit or protective clothing.

These fascinating creatures survive by sharing a symbiotic relationship with algae that live inside of them. At night, the jellyfish go down to the depths of the lake where the algae feed on nutrients. During the day, the jellyfish come back to the surface and follow the sun across the lake in a massive migration. The algae convert the energy of the sun via photosynthesis into a sugar that feeds the jellyfish.

It is not possible to scuba dive in this lake because the nutrient rich layer at around 50 feet and below contains hydrogen sulphide which is highly toxic to humans. If a scuba diver was to swim in that layer, the toxins would enter the body through the skin and that exposure could be fatal. Snorkeling however, is perfectly safe and if you ever find yourself in Palau one day, you should make your way to this special place. The experience of swimming through millions of jellyfish is quite surreal and Palau is the only place in the world where you can do just that!

I hope you enjoy the video and thank you for watching.

Vh1 Bringing Back "Pop Up Videos"

by Andrew Winistorfer
from http://www.prefixmag.com/



This is about the best news related to Vh1 programming in the history of the network: Vh1 just announced plans to bring back their seminal '90s video show Pop-Up Videos, that fountain of random-ass trivia in music video-length chunks, this fall with 60 new episodes. The best part of this news? The fact that the show will feature hip-hop videos for the first time, so expect dissections of "Big Pimpin'"(still the pinnacle of '90s rap videos) this fall. [AV Club]

Ronald Reagan Wasn’t Scared To Slap A B*tch

In case — like me up until today — you weren’t aware, Ronald Reagan’s fictional movie characters were Sean Connery before Sean Connery was Sean Connery (here and here).

Video of puppy growing to adult in 40 seconds becomes cute YouTube hit

By Daily Mail Reporter

This short video shows a dog growing from eight-weeks old to one-year old in only 40 seconds.

The YouTube clip shows pictures on the same spot of Dunder the German Shepherd over a period of ten months and has become an Internet sensation.
The time lapse video was uploaded on May 19 and has already attracted nearly 700,000 hits.


Scroll down to see the video

Happy birthday: Dunder the German Shepherd reaches one, having been photographed from eight-weeks old

In the video Dunder is shown as a tiny puppy obediently looking at a camera on what looks like a family kitchen floor.

As the video filters though more pictures as he grows up the floor become more and more dirty.

But Dunder is growing quickly and the days of him as a cute puppy are soon gone.
Occasionally

children's feet and even another dog can be seen in the images, which
become increasingly more humorous as time goes on.
Tiny: As a puppy Dunder is so small (and the floor is clean) - this is the beginning of the series of pictures

The dog can be seen wearing various items of clothing, too, and when his birthday comes around the photographer holds up the number one and Dunder poses with a birthday hat on his head.

One YouTube poster called Dupalle said: 'I just can't decide wether (sic) this is more awesome, cute or funny!!

'Definitely made my day though! Thanks for sharing!'
Woof customer: The dog is dressed up in all manner of costumes - but it's only when you slow the film down that you can see the outfits
