Joshua gets a no-prize that's a crack shot for bringing us this video of the pistol shrimp, a creature that kills with a bullet-like shock-wave generated by its claw.
eMail this entry!
"The pistol shrimp can shoot a blast of water at a speed of 100km/h and at the temperature of the sun."
I can't watch the video, so I can't tell if it's satire like the "spiders on drugs" video, but if they're serious, I'm calling BS.
Seems to be legit. Wikipedia at least says the effect is real.
