:: Apparently Russell Crowe is one of those people who likes to tweet the results of his workouts. Well, some dude decided that he’d start responding, with increasingly hilarious effects. Also, apparently Russell Crowe’s sense of humor is easily exhausted.
:: I only learned a few years ago that Lake Baikal in Siberia is the world’s largest fresh-water lake by volume. I always figured that would be Lake Superior, but that’s wrong: Lake Superior has the largest surface area by quite a bit (over twice the surface area of Baikal), but Baikal’s got the depths: its average depth is 260 meters greater than Superior’s.
Baikal is also apparently a very, very clear lake, which makes for stunning ice formations. Make sure to play the video at the end, when some people demonstrate some fascinating sonic properties of the Baikal ice.
:: Want to watch a surprisingly effective horror movie that only takes two minutes from beginning to end? Sure you do! (As with all such scares, it’s less effective when you’ve already seen it and know what’s coming.)
More next week, perhaps!
