If anyone wants to see video of a dinosaur, go look at this story on

A deep sea frill shark was found alive (but probably sick and disoriented) in shallow water off the coast of Japan. They normally live around 2000 feet below the sea, deeper than humans can go, and so it is rare that one is seen, much less recorded, while living. They are thought to have changed very little since prehistoric times. Divers at a Japanese marine park took some video of the shark swimming around before it died. This is what something older than humanity looks like.

I saw this yesterday (or maybe it was this morning) and was alternately freaked out/mesmerized/excited. It's even cooler than that dolphin story where it had the extra fin that used to be its feet when dolphins still lived on land.
