- Over in China beach-goers are enjoying a healthy swim in algae-filled waters.
An algae bloom, or 'green tide,' has clogged nearly 7,700 square miles (20,000 square kilometers) of the Yellow Sea, Chinese authorities said Sunday, according to the state-run media outlet Xinhua. The algae blanketing the beaches belongs to a species of marine plankton known as Enteromorpha prolifera, found in waters all around the world. In the right conditions, the algae can explode into so-called macro-algal blooms, Steve Morton, a marine biologist at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), told National Geographic News in 2010.

- A handy list of poets ranked by... beard weight.
Typifying a once-popular, but nowadays seldom-encountered species of turn-of-the-century ephemera,Poets Ranked by Beard Weight has become a rarity much prized by bibliophiles, and one that still stands out as a particular curiosity among the many colorful curiosities of the period. Its author, one Upton Uxbridge Underwood (1881 – 1937), was a deipnosophist, clubman, and literary miscellanist with a special interest in tonsorial subjects.

- Taiwanese tea company decides to market their product by way of mock Apple keynote.
The Jobs / John Stamos hybrid dropped by to pitch a Taiwanese company's vast selection of tea, of all things, for a TV advertisement that's apparently currently airing in Taiwan. Decked out in light jeans, a black mock turtleneck and sneakers, the impersonator even matched Steve's hair color, rimless glasses, and current weight. The only thing missing was an actual Apple product -- and months of media speculation.

Sorry, but you won't find any, as Travel & Leisure puts it, 'goofball novelty' buildings on this list. On the plus side, if you've always wanted to see what a bar-code building looks like then this post has your numeric ID all over it.

- Eleven of the strangest how-to books you can currently find on Amazon.
Turns out there is a how-to book out there for any and all subject that you can probably think of and that includes caring for and raising your very own mythical creatures. My personal favorite from this list though is 'How to Avoid Huge Ships' - which apparently is a serious offering in terms of boat safety.

- A collection of weird road signs from all over the world for you to gawk at.
I never knew that Big Foot looked like a cross between Aquaman and a goat. Those rangers over at Pike National Park in Coloroda Springs must know something that we don't. Or do they? Conspiracy!

Mr Pianezzi, 44, has introduced his alpaca Pisco to the waters of the Pacific Ocean over the past several months. Unlike dogs, an alpaca does not instinctively jump into the sea for a swim.

- Escaped monkey manages to make time for several Facebook appearances.
Facebook: the only place where you can find photos of an escaped monkey and then read posts by that same monkey as he taunts the authorities. Is there anything social networking can't do?
