Ugly looking Goblin Shark

Goblin Shark (Mitsukurina owstoni) is a rare, poorly understood species of deep-sea shark. Sometimes called a "living fossil". This pink-skinned animal has a distinctive profile with an elongated, flattened snout, and highly protrusible jaws containing prominent nail-like teeth. It is usually between 3 and 4 m (10 and 13 ft) long when mature. Goblin Sharks inhabit upper continental slopes, submarine canyons, and seamounts throughout the world at depths greater than 100 m (330 ft), with adults found deeper than juveniles.

The long snout is covered with ampullae of Lorenzini that enable it to sense minute electric fields produced by nearby prey, which it can snatch up by rapidly extending its jaws.

Two contrasting chess puzzles

Two dramatically contrasting chess puzzles:

The first one is gauchely complicated. Its solution is fiendishly difficult to find - completely from the left field. You just have to marvel at the devilish mind of the composer.

By contrast, the 2nd one is elegantly simple. Although the solution is easy to find; and yet you are left marveling at the ingenuity of the composer who made the White pieces dance so gracefully over the board.

Puzzle 1 - White to move and mate in 3. Solution is in the comment section.

Puzzle 2 - White to move and win. Solution is in the comment section.

Beaten up by a busty woman in an elevator

This morning, I was beaten up by a busty woman in an elevator.
I was staring at her boobs when she said, "Would you please press one?"
So I did.
I don't remember much after that.

Coconut crab

Coconut crab is the largest land-living crab in the world with a weight of up to 4 kg (9 lb). It can grow to up to 1 meter (3 feet) in length from leg to leg. It is found on islands across the Indian Ocean and parts of the Pacific Ocean as far east as the Gambier Islands, mirroring the distribution of the coconut palm.
