Apparently I accidentally deleted this rec or something, so here you have it again because this is hilarious. 

Well-written, lovely characterizations, I loved the new DADA teacher who is just so done with these two. Harry’s theories about Draco’s sweater are ridiculous. Also you don’t wanna miss out on drunk!Harry! Please read, you’ll love it!

Your phone screen glared through your once night lit room. Rolling over, you picked up your phone to read a mysterious number displayed across the screen. Ignoring the stinging in your tired eyes, you swiped open to read;

‘What colour is a hamburger? Burgundy!’

Amused by the dad joke, your sleep deprived body snickered as you looked down at the screen. Deciding it best to sleep instead of replying to this unknown contact, you closed your once tired eyes that were now adjusted to the screen’s light. Squirming around for a comfortable position seemed impossible now, the blanket being too hot on and too cold off.

You let out a deep sigh, opening your eyes once more, turning your head over to your phone sitting by the bedside table. A smile crept up onto your face, still amused by the dad joke that was sent to you.    

You leant over to reply; ‘What do you call a hen looking at a lettuce? Chicken ceaser salad!’

Pressing send, you couldn’t help but let out a laugh, proud of your ingenious joke.

Relaxing back into the mattress, you drifted back to sleep with a smile planted across your face. 


A message from this mysterious joke master woke you from your sleep once more, this time with the sunlight blinding your eyes.

‘What’s a runaway strawberry? Wild berry!’

You sighed, staring at the joke that stood before your eyes. Shaking your head, you made your way to the kitchen, glancing over to the left over toast in the toaster. A grin appeared onto your face, sliding your phone out of your pocket and replying;

Toasters were the first form of pop-up notifications.’

Above is a mini episode released by Cartoon Network entitled “Infinity Train.” It depicts a girl (Tulip) and her robot companion (One-One) struggling to figure out how to get off a train that seems to go on forever. Each box-car that they travel through (more or less) contains an obstacle that Tulip and One-One must overcome. In this episode it mostly focuses on one particular box-car, which contains a world run by Corgis. It’s awesome. While they make their way through the train, Tulip is faced with another mystery: a number emblazoned on her hand. ‘53’. She has no idea what it means or why it won’t come off, but it is implied that the number may play a part in the overall mystery of Tulip’s presence on the train.

And guess what guys.

This could be a TV show.

Yes, I said before that it was released as a Minisode, but OFFICIALLY it’s a pilot created by Owen Dennis, a former writer and board artist for Regular Show. This thing has some real potential, and personally I’ve been kind of itching for a mystery driven show since the end of Gravity Falls.

If you’re interested in this becoming a full series, there’s a petition forming hoping to make that a reality: https://www.change.org/p/cartoon-network-make-infinity-train-a-full-show.

We really need some more good shows, and I think this could be what we’ve been waiting for.

Is It Real?!

The first post in what I hope will become an ongoing series! If you want to learn more about this series check out this post: http://marinebiologyfacts.tumblr.com/post/152526580558/is-it-real

Let’s take a look at this…

So here we have what appears to be a fish with a transparent head. We can see inside the actual fish and there are two odd green orbs inside the clear dome.

So Is It Real?

Yes!

This is the Barreleye Fish.

First described in 1939, this deep sea fish has held a number of mysteries until recently. Those green orbs are the fish’s eyes, the eyes are very good at absorbing light and allow the fish to see in almost complete darkness. The eyes are able to rotate in the head from vertical, to look upwards at potential predators/prey, to horizontal to see in front of them at what ever they are trying to eat.

So the green orbs are the eyes, not the dark spots above the mouth(those are actually the equivalent of nostrils). It was actually not until very recently that we knew that this fish looked like alive, the fluid filled shield is very delicate and often is ruined when one is caught in a net. Thanks to ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) we now have actual footage of this animal. Lets take a look:

Thanks for reading the first part of Is It Real?! If you’ve seen a photo of a strange ocean animal (or plant) please submit it to keep the series going!

Number stations:

Number stations started broadcasting at the end of world war 1 and are allegedly used to send encrypted messages via the short wave radio stations that broadcast them. These untraceable transmissions interrupt static and begin with their general pattern of repeating music and eerie, pre-recorded voices, usually those of women or small children, repeating a series of numbers.

The broadcasts are global, so whichever recipients they are intended for could be anywhere in the world and still be able to tune in.
In an interview, Paul Beamont, one of the co-owners of a radio group who track radio oddities and call themselves “Enigma2000”,  said that he thought number stations were most likely some kind of dead hand system:  “If a nuclear war was to start, then the message would change, and that’s for the people who need to know, on what to do and where to go” He said. “Something possibly left over from the cold war”.

Others think it’s a system that governments use to send messages to spies operating outside of their respective countries.
