Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada Now Open!

Yesterday was a big day for the city of Toronto. A new 12,500 square-metre (135,000 square-foot) aquarium with more than 5.7 million litres (1.5 million gallons) of water was finally opened. Located in the shadow of the CN Tower, the aquarium promises to be a huge tourist attraction. The Aquarium of Canada was originally supposed to open more than a month ago, but was delayed until yesterday. Tickets for the attraction are not cheap ($30 per adult), but a 365 day pass can be purchased for only $100.

Behold The Shark Kite

This amazing kite comes to us from the Bali Kite Festival in Indonesia. This seasonal religious festival is intended to send a message to the Hindu Gods to bless the crops and provide an abundant harvest this year. Over 1000 traditional kites were flown during the festival, but only one bad ass shark.

Sharkskin Gloves - A Lasting Impression
Posted on July 29, 2013 by

The Last Gloves You’ll Ever Wear

These fitted gloves made from the skin of a basking shark might look warm and comforting, but they come with a huge price tag (€720.00), and a very serious commitment. Much as the name suggests these gloves will leave “a lasting impression” on anyone who dares to put them on. Inside the unlined gloves are hundreds, if not thousands, of mic-rose thorns all slanted inward. Should you ever attempt to remove the gloves the thorns will tear the flesh from your hands like a thousand fishhooks.
