Tumblr Thread: The Still On-Patrol Submarines

There's a tradition in the U.S. navy that no submarine is lost at sea, and every Christmas a broadcast is sent out to all the crews of those subs still on duty. Naturally, tumblr took it and made it into a whole ghost ship thing, which is somehow macabre but also heartwarming. Why not, people see some unexplained stuff at sea. For a totally classic navy story, here's a Navy operations officer who pulled the laziest move ever.

Americans are enthusiastic about the promise of science but lack basic knowledge of it, with one in four unaware that the Earth revolves around the Sun, said a poll out Friday.

The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.

Ten questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score -- 6.5 correct -- was barely a passing grade.

Impressive Creations Of Questionable Taste

There's no question that a lot of craftsmanship and creativity went into these skillful creations of dubious taste. It's just that they're also kind of also weird and scary. It takes a specific type of person to want to make a 20-foot peeing dachshund sculpture on the front of a building, but the world is...better... for it? At least there's no question that questionable taste and skill go hand in hand.
