A Brief History of Exploding Whales
A dead blue whale washed up on the shore of a small fishing town in Newfoundland last week. A bloated, beached, blubbery bomb of a blue whale. As of 3:30 pm Eastern Time today, the carcass is still intact, but onlookers are worried that it might soon explode. Literally.
The concerned marine science communicators at Upwell and Southern Fried Science have created a website devoted to monitoring this situation:

The War on Ice Cream Men
If you want to sell soft-serve out of a truck, be prepared to be treated like a criminal.
In Tucson, Arizona, prospective ice cream men must get their fingerprints taken by the cops before being granted a license. In Napa, California, regulations state that you must be both “interviewed and fingerprinted by the Napa Police Department.” All around the country, in fact, people who want to sell frozen treats have to check in with law enforcement first.
Don Knabe, the chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, is completely on board with this trend—in fact, he wants LA County, population 10 million, to subject every ice cream truck driver within its borders to the same screening process applied to those seeking to conduct commerce involving “explosives, weapons, and adult businesses.” That means “inkless electronic fingerprinting,” which can be used to generate “a report of criminal history” and kept in a database forever. Knabe plans on introducing the measure this May.

The Witches and Warlocks of Walpurgisnacht

To view more photos and videos from Walpurgisnacht, explore the Brocken location page and browse the #Walpurgisnacht hashtag.

Every year, six months from Halloween, spring festivals in Northern Europe are held to celebrate the eve of May Day. In Germany, the traditional Walpurgisnacht festival welcomes May 1 with witches and warlocks.

On Walpurgisnacht, or “Walpurgis Night” as it precedes the May Day feast of Saint Walpurgis, it is believed witches congregated for pagan ceremonies in places such as the Harz mountains in Schierke, Germany.

Today, adventurous Instagrammers and tourists make the journey up 1142 meters (3747 feet) to Brocken, where costumed revellers dance among bonfires at dawn. Elsewhere Walpurgis parties are held known as Tanz in den Mai, meaning “dancing into May”, followed by a four-day holiday in the country.

Similar witch festivals also take place on this night in Sweden (Valborgsmässoafton), Finland (Vappu), the Netherlands and the Czech Republic (pálení čarodějnic).

Calvary is worth a watch. The ending trundles towards you a bit predictably  and the film is by no means as comedic as some of the reviews suggest. But it’s beautifully shot and has a different spin from the usual whodunnits.
