They also have some of the most damaging teeth of any shark, only slightly worse are tiger shark teeth.
Really? I thought Great Whites were the top dogs in terms of damage per bite or something.

Worst thing ever is listening to the radio and getting really excited thinking 'Werewolves of London' is about to come on, and then it turns out to be that stupid 'All Summer Long' song that I hate.

Well.. in the car is really the only time you would need the radio, so I guess that's a load off your shoulders!

That's just because their teeth, jaws, and muscles are HUGE, but efficiency wise Tiger Shark teeth are much more dangerous. A great white will chomp down on something and then thrash around to basically rip it apart. Their teeth are triangular, like this:



A Tiger Shark's tooth looks like this:



It cuts like a razor blade. A Great White may chomp down on you, and let go leaving some nasty puncture wounds, but a tiger shark only needs to take one bite to slice your calf muscle off like a knife. There is actually a thing on Shark Week that explains this pretty well where they tested this and found Tiger Shark teeth to be the most efficient.

Bull Shark's tooth looks like this, kind of a combination of the two:



Now, the king of all Sharks, the Megalodon, teeth look like this:



It's jaws were big enough to swallow you whole though, so efficiency isn't going to matter much. Megalodon's were probably the greatest predator that ever existed on this planet and likely went extinct simply because they were too damn big (Oxygen content could not longer support them, and they could not sustain their eating).

80s nerds unite. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron releases next week. So they gave us a new, suitably epic trailer



My inner child is pleased.

After reading some stupid Reddit post, I realized that my name without vowels is DVD. Mind=blown.

Also, spending near 3 hours at the gym is probably not the best idea on a Friday. I'm pretty sure I'll pass out within an hour...

On Bull Sharks. This is gnarly. If you have a weak stomach maybe don't watch. I couldn't find the uber gruesome clip, but this is still pretty bad.

I was in a car accident tonight and realized two things:

1) TDKR is cursed, every time I try to watch that movie something bad happens. So please, continue avoiding spoilers since I still haven't seen it.

2) The other person's insurance company is way nicer than our insurance company.

Edit: 3) Always keep a pen in your car.

Looks great hope it doesn't disappoint. Any word on early reviews?

Thankfully, nothing that can't be fixed for both parties, and no people damage(just some rattled nerves and one really flat cherry pepsi).
