Diver Frees Whale Shark from Rope



The whale shark is the largest fish known. This one got a fishing line caught around him and continued to grow while the rope tightened. Seeing the condition of the rope, it has most likely been there a long time. A diver takes the opportunity to free the shark. You’d expect the big fish to either attack or swim away, but this one sits still long enough for the diver to do his work. A happy ending, for now!

Dad Joke Makes Bea Laugh



This is how Dad jokes start, and become a lifelong habit for so many men. A two-year-old will laugh at anything. Bea is tickled pink to hear her Dad say Abu Dhabi. That’s silly, Daddy! There’s a joke there, but she doesn’t have to wait for the punch line to find Abu Dhabi funny. The punch line doesn’t matter to Bea, because she doesn’t have any idea who the Flintstones are, anyway. But she’s so joyously entertained that you have to laugh along with her! (via Tastefully Offensive)

OK Go Goes Zero Gravity



For their latest music video, OK Go teamed up with Russia’s S7 airlines and took a trip in their vomit comet, a plane that flies in parabolic arcs to train cosmonauts for low-gravity space flight. The song is “Upside Down & Inside Out.”  From the band’s website:
The longest period of weightlessness that it is possible to achieve in these circumstances is about 27 seconds, and after each period of weightlessness, it takes about five minutes for the plane to recover and prepare for then next round. Because we wanted the video to be a single, uninterrupted routine, we shot continuously over the course of 8 consecutive weightless periods, which took about 45 minutes, total. We paused our actions, and the music, during the non-weightless periods, and then cut out these sections and smoothed over each transition with a morph.
The rest of the story about making the video is pretty interesting. For example, they made 21 flights, and there were 58 incidences of actual vomiting. (via Buzzfeed)
