In an effort to stave off the wholesale consumption of the noble blue crab in Maryland - a state that considers crab to be a vitamin - PeTA launched a billboard campaign that caught the attention of Jimmy's Famous Seafood in Baltimore. As you can surmise, hilarity then ensued across the twitterverse.

If you think you're the only fan of movies so bad they're good, think again. Every state in the US has its own favorite terrible film. These films - you know, those bad movies that you love to hate and hate to love - definitely aren't masterpieces, but they bring about great nostalgia and comfort when you watch them.

Simon died early Sunday of complications from pneumonia at New York Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, said Bill Evans, a longtime friend and spokesman for Shubert Organization theaters.

The bathroom is a mysterious place. What goes on inside varies for everyone, or maybe it doesn't; we simply do not know. The question has prompted some discussion in the past, and I suspect it will continue to do so until we are all under 24-hour government surveillance, at which point the answers will be known by those with access to the government's live feed. But for now, with the door closed, we can only suspect and ask questions. Here's one: Do men enter the bathtub on their hands and knees in order to ensure their balls hit the water last?

Yeah, you're laughing. But methane is a pretty awful greenhouse gas, far worse than CO2. By feeding seaweed to both cows and sheep, we could cut down on their belching out this crap into our atmosphere.

Product advertising as a whole was nearly eradicated in the early days of TV, but clever execs convinced the FTC that the function of advertising was to provide information, not sway purchases. Now that the intarwebs has made product information readily available to anyone and everyone, the argument could be made that there is no legitimate reason for advertising to exist any more.

In 2014, "feltist" Lucy Sparrow opened the doors to the Cornershop, a playful pop-up "store" in London. Though seemingly stocked with familiar groceries, the Cornership was not your typical supermarket; everything, from the potato chips to the pricing gun, was made of soft and squishy felt. While the Cornershop has long since closed, Sparrow Mart, a similar site, has made its way to sunny southern California.

Pandas often give birth to twins, but only nurse one of them, which is a tragic waste of pandas. Scientists have found a workaround that relies on their innate obliviousness, as you can see in this clip from BBC Earth. One may argue that this only perpetuates the survival of less-intelligent pandas, but that's akin to closing the barn door after the horse has escaped.
Sir David Attenborough narrates.

The Indonesian capital of Jakarta is home to 10 million people but it is also one of the fastest-sinking cities in the world. If this goes unchecked, parts of the megacity could be entirely submerged by 2050, say researchers. Is it too late?
