What the… Apparently this was a 1976 comic book to promote the then-new county bus system with campy knock-off superheroes.
A Metro train in Rotterdam overshot the end of its track, but caught on a giant whale tail sculpture instead of falling 30 feet to the ground. No passengers were onboard, and the driver escaped unharmed. Now they have to figure out how to get the train down safely.
The sculpture, incidentally, is called “Saved by the Whale’s Tale.”
Who would have thought Salvador Dalí could still get even *more* surreal?
A museum has (with permission from the Dalí Foundation) put together a life-size interactive video exhibit using deepfake editing, actors, real footage and audio from interviews to get his expressions right. As part of the interaction, he takes selfies with visitors, which you can have texted to you.
The headlines keep getting better:
“Alleged Russian spy whale is refusing to leave and is seeking attention, authorities say”
RT @brionv: @KelsonV at least it’s not a sea lion
@brionv Now that you mention it….
I swear this is like a subplot from a Bond movie or something.
A beluga whale showed up near Norway with a Russian-made camera harness (but no camera) and has Norwegian officials speculating about Russian military spying cetaceans.
Apparently it’s not that improbable, since there’s a history of the Russian (and previously Soviet) military training dolphins???
A memorial erected in Vancouver sparked controversy because it was dedicated to “all women murdered by men”, which critics say implies all men are potential murderers. As a result, women involved in the project received death threats[…].
men are violent against women, and when women point this out, they are threatened with more violence
The caption was necessary.
