The sharkini, inspired perhaps by a certain Ian Ziering-helmed SyFy movie thriller, is a bathing suit that send a vital message: Be careful in the water, okay? The Sharkini retails for around a $100, but its value as a walking PSA is priceless. [Store Envy]
Apparently, the designer of this swimsuit, Bad Aby Designs, ripped off another designer’s swimsuit — trademarked as the “Sharkini” — and is now in the process of changing the name of the suit. You can find the ORIGINAL Sharkini here.
Did you watch the Ian Ziering-helmed SyFy ridiculousness that is “SharkNado” last night? Because I did! And it was … amazing! And … informative! And I think I might be ready to pursue a career as a meteoranimalogist (that’s the guy who predicts the next and latest combo-predatory animal/extreme weather). For anybody who for some stupid reason missed “SharkNado,” here’s what it’s about: The oceans flood, biblical-style, off the cost of Santa Monica, and the sharks are pissed!

After a long day of swimming and preying on sea life, sharks need to take a load off just like us humans. Instead of watching massive amounts of reality TV (not that I’ve ever done that), researchers have found that sharks enjoy some tunes to help them relax. According to a team studying the effects of music on a group of great white sharks in Australia, AC/DC—more specifically the song “You Shook Me All Night Long”—has been shown to calm the animals. When hearing that particular hard-rock anthem, the sharks became inquisitive and much less aggressive. Some of them even rubbed their faces along the speaker in a gesture of affection. I wonder if something like Enya would have the opposite effect and make them bloodthirsty? Not that I have any desire to find out. Keep reading »
