"QUANTUM SHOT" #200


The Cutest... Vegetable

China is home to some very interesting hot peppers. This one should be put up on eBay - it might even get more money than the "Jesus Toast".

I'd post more images of it's short happy life: frolicking in the sun, growing to full maturity... eating the owner for breakfast... but sadly, I do not have enough information :)

However, here is a... vegetable Mickey Mouse:



and a carrot gentleman:

Some other creatures perhaps masquerading as plants?
This "flower" is just too smug looking:

"Euphorbia esculenta" flower has a face:

Kalanchoe Daigremontiana looks like some kind of Martian lobster:

Martin Heigan took a great picture of Stapelia flavopurpurea flower
(with its out-worldly crop of "tentacles"):

Passiflora Caerulea flower, equipped with its own "parabolic antenna":

Tree... walking?




I also happen to have the following proof of aliens residing on Earth:
Mystery "flower"



Perhaps we can find out what this thing is.

UPDATE
Apparently this is not a flower or a plant, but the amazing Lamprey.
A "jawless fish with a toothed, funnel-like sucking mouth. Although they are often not considered to be true fish because of their vastly different morphology and physiology." (thanks Ilja)

Still, better watch what you're eating. Not every plant is what it seems:

ot only is it a Lamprey, but I can tell you that photo came from the accompanying book to the David Attenborough documentary "Life on Earth".

Beaten to it! That 'mystery flower' is certainly a jawless fish. As the previous posters said, it is likely a lamprey.

As stated by the others, that 'mystery flower' is not a flower at all. It is most definitely a lamprey.

For all the Kubrick (and IPhone) buffs out there:

A new spoof video making use of 2001: A Space Odyssey recently came out, and there's a mild amount of interest in the site itself: myiphonerevolution.com.

The video spoof itself is fun, but it would appear that there's an even more compelling reason to chec k the site out...

The guys who made the site are now calling for a contest for people to make their own viral videos!

I can't wait to see what people can come up with.
