In what is potentially the best fruit-related story of the year, Chinese watermelons are exploding without the help of ninjas or slingshots.
In the future, when humans are extinct and watermelons evolve into sentient beings capable of mastering fusion energy and interstellar travel, someone will find the Marugoto Tamachan – a portable watermelon cooler – and they will be as puzzled as we are.
Hey, we here at Gizmodo, together with Nancy Nord of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, want to remind you to have a safe 4th of July. Don’t use illegal fireworks for anything dangerous. Like blowing up an M-1000 inside of a watermelon. In slow motion. Happy 4th weekend everybody. [CPSC]
