Funny Business Name

We're sure people won't be heading down to Jurassic Pork (if it still exists) for Black Friday deals tomorrow, but you can't deny that it's a funny and / or clever name for a food truck.

At first glance, this may look like just another photo manipulation, but it's actually a real frost flower. To be more specific, this condition happens when thin layers of ice are extruded from long-stemmed plants in autumn or early winter. The thin layers of ice are often formed into exquisite patterns that curl into "petals" that resemble flowers. Continue reading for more images and information.

One internet user aboard an Air Canada flight to Vancouver heard a noise mid-flight, and then proceeded to see a screw come loose from the propeller before it headed straight into the window pane by his seat. In Skips_LegDay's own words: "So about halfway through my flight I heard a loud POP, looked out my window at a bolt that flew off the prop and broke through the outer pane." Once other passengers heard and saw what happened, they became frenzied. Fortunately, the plane landed safely. Continue reading for an up-close shot and more information.

Pontinha

Renato Barros, a 56-year-old Portuguese citizen purchased a small island on Funchal harbor, in Maderia, Portugal, for $31,000 and named it the Principality of the Pontinha, anointing himself Prince Renato II. Pontinha is just the size of a one-bedroom house, and has only four citizens - Barros, his wife, and his two children. In addition to his Portuguese passport, Barros holds a passport for Pontinha with the number 0001. He says: "I am whatever I want to be - that's the dream, isn't it. If I decide I want to have a national song, I can choose it, and I can change it any time. The same with my flag - it could be blue today, red tomorrow. Of course, my power is only absolute here, where I am the true sovereign." Click here to view the first image in this week's funny school pictures gallery.

Underwater Crop Circles

No, the crop circle-inspired design you see above was not created by aliens, but rather a tiny Japanese puffer fish. That's right, tiny silvery male puffer fishes are responsible for making the beautiful and elaborate underwater crop circles to attract a mate. They use their pectoral fins to carve an elaborate series of rings and ridges in the sand. Since they are constantly washed away by water flow, the tiny fish must constantly maintain them. The more elaborate the underwater 'crop circle' mating ring, the more likely the male puffer is to attract a female counterpart. Continue reading for a video and more information.
