Sharknado fans: Know your shark facts

30 Jul

Great White Shark

Shark fans are preparing for a feeding frenzy of Sharknado2 and Shark Week. Bone up on your shark facts and get ready for the premiere of Sharknado2 tomorrow, July 30.

10 Shark-y Facts You Should Know:

1. Nudists were right all along. Did you know that contrasting colors or uneven tan lines can attract a shark? So make sure you tan au naturale.

2. Sharks need love too. In aquarium settings, sharks have been trained to recognize sounds and touch.

3. Ouch! Helcoprion, a prehistoric shark, sliced its prey with its eviscerating, 360-degree spiral of menacing teeth.

4. How do you catch a shark? Professionals coax it into a large plastic tube known as a “shark-sock”.  Are you kidding?!! Don’t try this at home.

5. Who are the bullies on the block? The Tiger, Great White and Bull sharks are the sharks that attack the most humans. They seem to prefer these tender, human-sized appetizers.

6. He’s not smiling. The Great White shark grows up to 20,000 sharp and pointy teeth in his lifetime. He never runs out of teeth either. If one is lost, another spins forward from rows and rows of backup teeth.

7. Guess who’s coming to dinner? Normally sharks dine alone. If, the Great White is ever part of a group feeding, they take turns eating….from the largest to the smallest.

8. They were here first. Sharks predate dinosaurs by 200 million years. The largest, prehistoric shark might have grown up to 67 feet in length.

9. Hmmmm. Since baby sharks are born with a full set of teeth, they are able to feed and live on their own soon after birth.

10. Filet o’ fish? Sharks don’t have a single bone in their body. Their skeletons are made entirely of cartilage—-for flexibility and cruising long distances.

Now you can watch Sharknado and Sharknado2: The Sharkening The Second One in the comfort of your own home with all of the glamour of a hokey 50s 4D theater!Get the Syfy Sync app for your iPhone/iPad.

Leprechaun sightings are common on St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago

Wear & share some leprechaun kiss temporary tattoos this St. Patrick's Day

Wear & share some leprechaun kiss temporary tattoos this St. Patrick’s Day

 

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is a tradition in the Chicago area.  For the past 43 years the Chicago River turns green for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade celebration. If you were watching this for the first time you would think this is a mistake or a bad joke. After a moment or two you then see the true color magically appear: the color green is identical to the greens of Ireland from where it got its name “The Emerald Isle.”

Another wonderful tradition we have in Chicago is our amazing plethora of Irish pubs. If you are in Chicago during St. Patrick’s Day, join in the fun and head to a local Irish bar to enjoy a Guinness, sing a rendition or two of  “O Danny Boy” and maybe see a leprechaun or two.  After all, in Chicago, we believe everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! See the list below for some of our favorite “green” bars:

Are you a dreamer too?

23 Aug
Share some peaceful inspiration.

Share some peaceful inspiration.

The news is filled with serious unrest in Egypt and mass killing in Syria, maybe choosing to offset all the warring in the world with a simple inspirational wrist tattoo is being a dreamer, but in the words of the famous song, “Imagine” by John Lennon, “but I know I am not the only one.” Maybe if we imagine the possibility of peace, we can work to achieve it.

“Imagine”

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
