Named for famed British naturalist and personal hero David Attenborough, this is a picture of Attenborough’s long-beaked echidna (Zaglossus attenboroughi), snapped by a camera trap during an expedition in the Cyclops Mountains in Indonesia’s Papua Province. It is the first time since 1961 that scientists have managed to spot the
This is a clip from Antiques Roadshow where a woman brought a full base set of original Pokemon cards her mom bought her in 1999 for $35. Their estimated value now? Between $5,000 and $10,000. That’s quite an appreciation, and I regret putting so many of those Pokemons between my

From Matt Highton (of Spice Girls/Dune mashup fame) comes this video of the Pokemon cartoon intro recreated using only stock footage he edited together. The result is pretty impressive in a lot of ways, and pretty desperate in a lot of other ways (I’m looking at you, Blastoise). It kind
This is a short video of a pet tortoise showing off its fancy Venusaur Pokemon costume. What a cutie! If only the person filming had spent as much time planning the video as they had making the costume maybe it wouldn’t look like it was filmed with the Motorola pager
