How can it be?  It's like the Abbott and Costello of friendships!  Yet these two diametrically opposed creatures seem to really like each other.  Of course, if you saw The Life of Pi, things could turn wrong at some point...

I think that its odd that one of the largest mammals on the planet eats one of the smallest creatures in existence: krill.  Krill are essentially tiny shrimp.  And whales thrive on these little critters.  But how do they catch them?

I love The Muppet Show.  But...

You can't help but praise the combination of science/history and modern special effects.  This 30 minute video is just plain cool.  And... you may learn something in the process.
