If you haven’t already noticed Owls are taking over the Internet, they have somehow become the new bacon or cats. This latest trend has me screaming “YAY”, cause owls are amazing creatures that have awesome expressions which can play tricks on the eye, like this lil’ fellow who looks like Gandalf from Lord of the Rings.
Featured in the 80′s Masters of the Universe Franchise, He-Man is the alter ego of Prince Adam. The Sorceress of the Castle of Greyskull on the Planet of Eternia, who when given his sword and saying the words “For the Power of Greyskull”, he would transform from a Prince into the He-Man we came to know. His known nemesis is Skeletor whom He-Man would defend the realm of Eternia and the secrets of Greyskull.
He-Man Unknown Facts:
* The Origin of He-Man came about due to a failed launch of action figures for the film Star Wars, due to time constraints another action figure needed to be created and therefore, He-Man was developed and marketed.
* In 1980 a lawsuit was brought to Mattel claiming He-Man was a replica of Conan the Barbarian, this lawsuit was won by Mattel retaining the rights for He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
* Prince Adam had a cowardly pet tiger named Cringer, but when transformed into He-Man, he also transformed Cringer into a brave green tiger known as Battle Cat.
* He-Man began as a mini-comic; with the difference of a shared Power Sword with nemesis Skeletor and that he was a Barbarian.
* The Sorceress who gave He-Man his powers spoke to him telepathically.
It is pretty awesome when you can catch nature in its pure glory, much like this video does. It happened in Indonesia, when a Black Marble Jawfish (a specific fish that mimics the colors of other fish species for protection) comes across a Mimic Octopus. As you will see its colors are different until it comes in contact with the Octopus and they mimic each other. This is rather unusual to capture since the Jawfish usually spends most of its life buried in sand, so this epic video piece clearly shows that even in nature, even when you think no one is watching, owning still happens, perhaps it originated long before the Internet coined the term, these two sea creatures sure make you wonder.
