When I tell people I'm from Maine, they ask, "Did you ride moose to school?" While they're (hopefully) joking, I always play along and laugh about our lack of running water, too. The truth, though, is that I can't remember a time I've actually seen a moose. I probably saw one from far off as a girl when my family and I spent summers camping and winters on the slopes...but I have no actual recollection.But when it comes to this little girl's encounter with a moose, I can't imagine she'll soon forget the meeting -- this is simply too amazing to not remember!

If you are American, youve no doubt experienced the popularity of hot dogs. They are everywhere, especially during the summer months. Go to a ballgame, you have to get a hot dog. Go to the park, there will be a hot dog vendor. Even many of the big box stores will set up outdoor hot dog stands during the summer months. Hot dogs are consumed like crazy, and you may have had hundreds or thousands of them in your lifetime. Unfortunately, the reality of the hot dog is one you probably dont want to know about, but definitely need to know about. Despite the popularity, in reality hot dogs are plain nasty.

While spiders freak us all out, they typically do a good job of warning us to keep our distance. But unlike scary-looking arachnids, there are some seriously dangerous insects out there that seem perfectly safe until they bite. Take Triatominae insects, for example. Also known as kissing bugs, these critters don't look like much. However, they can transmit a deadly disease that often isn't detected until it's too late. Kissing bugs can be found all over America, with some species in Asia, Africa, and Australia. They like to live in chicken coups and outdoor dog houses as well as under porches, rocks, and cement.

They Were Doing Underwater Research When — Suddenly — Something Massive Came To Say Hello

Uncategorized
On April 15, 2015, researchers from E/V Nautilus sent a robot named Hercules down into the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of Louisiana. They were exploring the biology, geology, and archeology of the ocean, and when they reached a depth of 1,962 feet, they suddenly encountered something magnificent -- a sperm whale. It is incredibly rare to have a robot meet a sperm whale at these depths, but what they captured on film for a live audience is amazing. The population of sperm whales on Earth used to be in the millions. Today, perhaps less than a few thousand remain due to hunting in the 19th century. For those that are still with us, however, let's hope more footage like this gets captured. Because after seeing it, how can you not want to do everything you can to help? ...
