If You Think This Is Your Average Beach Resort, Look Closer. Because This Is Pretty Insane.

Looks can be deceiving, even for something as big and as seemingly obvious as a beach. What you see below is NOT a well manicured tourist beach in Japan. It’s something much different. If you like going to the beach, but don’t fancy going into the water (because that’s where the sharks live), then there is a resort in Japan that is just for you. This is the SeaGaia Ocean Dome, the world’s largest indoor water park. Basically, it is an enormous man-made beach.

The Ocean Dome holds a Guinness World Record for being the largest indoor water park.

It’s 300 meters long and 100 meters wide.

The perfectly regulated water is approximately 86 degrees Fahrenheit, year-round.

Unlike the real ocean, the Dome features some specialty pools, a wave pool for surfers, kiddie pools, water slides and perfect weather.

There are also numerous hotels, restaurants, shops and other activities inside the SeaGaia area. You wouldn’t have to go far to be entertained (even if the real coastline is close by).

When swimming in the Ocean Dome, you wouldn’t have to worry about jellyfish, sharks, stepping on coral or any of the hazards you would at the coast.

Plus, if you have sensitive skin it would be easy to stay out of the sun, as the entire dome is covered in a retractable roof.

There are some parts of going to the beach that are hard for people to appreciate (myself included). Don’t feel bad that there is real coastline less than a mile away from the SeaGaia resort. When people go to SeaGaia, it’s not for the fresh air. They go so that their senses can be completely fooled and they can enjoy all of the amenities of a record-breaking water park. Via Excitris Share this awesome park and dream of warm weather.

These Bizarre Apple Products Prove Apple Wasn’t So Cool In The 80’s.

Apple is arguably the hippest company around today. (You won’t find a 20-or-30 something without an Apple product.) Even “That 70’s Show” cool-guy, Ashton Kutcher, failed to accurately represent how cool Steve Jobs was before his passing. However, there was a time in the 80’s where it seemed Apple wanted to be cool, but was…well, trying a little too hard.

Here are some weird Apple products that probably makes them cringe like you do when you look at old high school photos. Why did they try to sell this stuff?

1.) Apple Jean Jacket

2.) Apple Wine Glass

3.) Apple Earrings

4.) Apple Swiss Army Knife

5.) Apple Paper Clip

6.) Apple Baseball Cap (‘Top Dog’? More like kick ass!)

7.) The iSurfboard

8.) Apple Pittsburgh Pirates Scarf

9.) The iDecanter

10.) The iToy Truck

11.) Apple Playing Cards

12.) Apple Seat Cushion (for stadiums)

13.) The iDesk

14.) The Apple-Braun iCalculator

15.) Apple Adidas (Look at those hot mommas!)

16.) Apple Children’s Clothing

I think its safe to say that Apple jean jacket is probably the nerdiest jean jacket in the history of jean jackets. (But, in my heart of hearts, I so want one!) If you miss the 80’s, give this a share on Facebook.

Miller makes key point about Weiner, Huma Abedin (Bonus: Nickname ideas)

Bada-zing! As Twitchy reported, Dennis Miller took to Twitter to weigh in on the latest Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner disturbing news. Miller wasn’t swooning over Anthony Weiner’s “brave” wife, Huma Abedin. He also noted that we are meant to believe that Sarah Palin is the “clueless one.”

Double zing! He then offered up some ideas for Weiner nicknames in classic Miller style.

Miller ended with a key observation:

Bingo.

Cecile Richards on when life begins: ‘I don’t know that it’s really relevant’

Don’t ask Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards when life begins — if she knows, she’s not telling. It’s too irrelevant a question for her to bother answering, really. That’s what Fusion TV’s Jorge Ramos learned Thursday.

When asked when life begins, Cecile Richards, the President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund said, “It’s not something that I feel like is really part of this conversation…every woman needs to make their own decision.”

“Why would it be so controversial for you to say when you think life starts?” asked Jorge Ramos.

“I don’t know that it’s controversial. I don’t know that it’s really relevant to the conversation,” answered Richards.

If you have a question on anything else, don’t hesitate to ask for Richards’ expertise.

Fake Twitter accounts soliciting ‘donations’ for victims in Boston

Unreal. Twitter is already suspending fake accounts promising donations to the victims of today’s explosions at the Boston Marathon in exchange for retweets.

Wow! Already there are fake accounts set up for the Boston Marathon asking for money! I think we just found a new level of scum.

— Jayne Sharp (@Jaynesharp) April 15, 2013

“Oh hey. Something awful has happened. I’d better set up a fake, official-looking account to beg for RTs.” – An actual person, minutes ago.

— Guy (@Brainmage) April 15, 2013

Folks, please don’t RT some Tweet supposedly from Boston Marathon twitter account re $1 per RT – fake, and taking advantage of situation

Ghoulish fake account @_bostonmarathon

— Aaron Worthing (@AaronWorthing) April 15, 2013

its actually disgusting that someone would make a fake twitter account and exploit this tragedy just to get retweets twitter.com/hollyniemiec/s…

— Holly Niemiec (@hollyniemiec) April 15, 2013

They’ve already created a fake Boston marathon account are you kidding me twitter.com/Whitenusss/sta…

— Jack (@Whitenusss) April 15, 2013

Report @bostonmarathons and every account like it for spam for taking advantage of this. They’re fake and trying to get ad money

— Nathan Gibbs (@ImNathanHi) April 15, 2013

Note that there was no way to donate money through the fake account; the goal, apparently, was merely to collect followers and retweets. Is it possible that makes the scam even more pathetic?

If you’re creating a fake Twitter account looking for RT’s right now, there’s a special place in hell for you.

If your reaction to a terrorist attack is creating a fake account and promising donations for retweets, please go kill yourself.

These Katydids Are Harder To Find Than A Job After College.

Katydids (otherwise known as Tettigoniidae), are insects that are similar to a cricket or a weta. These oversized crickets are good at making noise. They’re also really, really good at hiding themselves from predators. They can make like a tree and leaf. (But seriously, they can look just like leaves.) Can you find the katydids in the pictures below? Give it a try. If you can find all seven, you’ll win the opportunity to call yourself a “finding katydids in pictures expert” at the next party you attend. Start mentally preparing yourself now for all of the attention and free drinks you’ll get.

Coaching legend Pat Summitt steps down, Holly Warlick takes over

Pat Summitt has stepped down to become head coach emeritus while Holly Warlick becomes the head coach of the Lady Vols.

— Rudy Kalis (@RudyKalisWSMV) April 18, 2012

The greatest coach in women’s basketball history, Pat Summitt, has stepped down as head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers. Last year Summitt announced she had been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type which is likely the main reason behind her deciding to step down.

During her time with Tennessee, she has won 8 national championships and is the only women’s or men’s basketball coach in history to reach 1000 wins.

The Lady Vols, nor college basketball, will ever feel the same without her. We wish her the best.

The greatest coach in women's basketball history announced she's stepping down at Tennessee today. Keep praying for Pat Summitt

— Jordan Jones (@JordanJones33) April 18, 2012

There are things you know will end. Pat Summitt coaching at Tenn. was one of them. I still feel like I've been hit by a truck with the news.

Will be quite odd not seeing Pat Summitt on the Tennessee women's basketball sidelines next season. Sending her good thoughts.

— alisha_puckett (@alisha_puckett) April 18, 2012

As a UConn fan who grew up rooting against Pat Summitt, its sad to see her go, especially like this. Best of luck to her and her family

Pat Summitt steps down from Tennessee. I'm not a women's basketball fan, but she's a true legend and this is sad news .

FLOTUS flub: Michelle Obama accidentally labels herself a ‘single mother’

In an interview with Vermont CBS affiliate WCAX today, Michelle Obama referred to herself as a “busy, single mother” before realizing her mistake and correcting herself.

Anything else you want to share with the class, Michelle?
