Jellyfish Lake in Palau

Twelve thousand years ago jellyfish were trapped in a lake, located on Eli Malk island, in the Republic of Palau.

These jellyfish have evolved uniquely and are almost completely harmless to humans. They rely on a symbiotic relationship with the algae that lives inside them to survive. They are actually farmers in their own right, diving to the lakes depths at night so the algae can feed on minerals at the bottom of the lake, only to return to the surface during the day so the algae can use the light to produce sugars that they harvest and ingest.

The lower layer of the lake is toxic to divers, with a high hydrogen sulphide content that can be absorbed through the skin, it means that snorkeling is the only safe way to enjoy this incredible natural phenomenon.

Sarosh Jacob, the photographer stated, “The experience of swimming through millions of jellyfish is quite surreal and Palau is the only place in the world where you can do just that!”

Anyone who has watch The King of Kong: A Fist Full of Quarters will know that Billy Mitchell is the worlds biggest douche.

Since the 80’s, Twin Galaxies has taken upon its self to officiate all the high scores in competitive video gaming. This has been done in the hopes of making competitive video gaming more recognised as form of professional competition.

Billy Mitchell – World Video Game Record Holder and massive douche.

Steve Wiebe, who was the hero of King of Kong, captured the minds and hearts of everyone who heard his story. He’s a humble family man with a dream that is pointless and unimportant to most people, making his story of triumph a fantastic ride.

Here is another guy that is far more Steve than Billy. It’s a long video, but pretty cool. Enjoy!
