The Gorilla Who Punched That Photographer Wasn't Drunk

Remember the photo of a “drunk” gorilla that went viral a couple of weeks back? The one that punched a photographer and gave the internet an opportunity to make endless jokes about the gorilla uprising? Turns out, the gorilla wasn’t actually drunk.

What Would Happen To NYC If A Nuke Exploded Over Manhattan

You Can Customise The Level Of Gore Detail On This Jaws Shark Bust

It wasn’t until Star Wars stormed through theatres in 1977 that blockbuster movies came with toys and collectibles in tow. And since Jaws was released two years earlier, there has never really been a decent amount of shark-themed collectibles available for the film.
