The giant oarfish (Regalecus glesne) is the longest known species of bony fish on Earth. The longest on record was 11 metres (36 ft); however, unconfirmed specimens of up to an astonishing 17 metres (56 ft) have been reported. Its huge size and its undulating method of swimming has led many to speculate that it may be the source of "sea serpent" legends. Like many denizens of the deep, we know little of their biology or lives. They are occasionally caught by fisherman or wash up ashore, but live sightings are few and far between.

The picture above is a parasitic plant native to the nation of Africa. Usually this plant grows underground, yet the structure of this flower creates the smell of feces. By doing so it attracts dung and carrion beetles. Once a beetle has entered the plant closes like a venus fly trap and traps the beetle for a brief period. Photo Credit: ispot.org.za

iPhones are widely popular with their sleek design and intuitive operating system. Like many others, the iPhone is always developing newer versions of it's operating system to maintain performance and features of this device. Although, in the process of jailbreaking, a user is able to "jailbreak" their iDevice in the sacrifice of losing up coming features in possible updates. Yet by jailbreaking, users can enhance features not supported by apple such as USB Tethering for free or simply customizing the look and feel of iOS. Yet, with each new Apple update, it has become harder for developers to create a jailbreak for iDevices. Apple is aware of jailbreaking and recognized it, yet made it legal as long as the user does not make illegal downloads, such as cracked applications.
