See what was brewing with Jen Scordo today. Every day on “The Best Show Ever?” she shares 3 recent weird and interesting news stories. Today she had one about a 33ft Jellyfish, a fan trying to slip his number to Adele, and an old Apple Computer hand-numbered by Steve Jobs that is up for Auction. Here are her stories from today.
Rare Phantom Jellyfish Spotted Off California Coast
Usually, when we see jellyfish, they are fairly small animals. But there is one breed of jellyfish that is fairly massive. The Phantom Jellyfish is a rare sight, with only 100 confirmed sightings since its discovery in 1899. Part of the reason for that is that it usually only lives at extreme depths, which can be hard for us to explore even with Submarines. But it has been spotted once again, 3,200 ft below sea level off the coast of California. The rare giant Jellyfish is 3 ft wide, with tentacle-like “Mouth arms” that are over 33ft long. It uses those arms to snare its prey, and drag them in.
Fan Tries to Slip Adele His Number
Sometimes in life, you just have to shoot your shot. But maybe slipping a celebrity your number is not the best way to go about that. That is what one fan tried to do with Adele. Though Adele claims he just wanted to sell her a car, which if true might be even weirder. Adele also noted that her boyfriend, Rich Paul, was none too pleased with what happened. He said the man would be put to sleep. But judging how he handled the Ben Simmons stuff, we all doubt Rich Paul would ever actually do anything.
Apple Computer Hand Numbered By Steve Jobs Up For Auction
If you have access to $375,000, you could acquire a piece of tech history. Because an original Apple computer, hand-numbered by Steve Jobs, is up for auction. But it is running up a heavy cost. The current highest bid as of this story is $241,000. But that price is going to keep going up. The listing includes the original motherboard, with the stock number ’01-00002′ in Steve Job’s handwriting. And despite being 45 years old, the device is still operational. Of course with it being that old, operational means it doesn’t even have the computing power of a modern calculator. But it still is a cool piece of tech history. Too bad none of us can afford it.
