Kyoto University's Primate Research Institute in Inuyama, Japan is really great at making the average human look like a fool!
No, they're not really into putting banana peels at the tops of stairwells… (that just sounds super dangerous), they're into chimpanzee research!
They've found that chimps have an incredible capacity for remembering things.
One of the study's findings was reported by New Scientist as:

We didn't know that this was such a mystery!
Insects have to beat their wings up to 500 times a second to stay aloft! That shiz cray!
Exactly how bees are able to do this, science didn't know… until now!!
Two biophysicists at the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute were studying the difference between insect flight muscles and vertebrate muscles.

What the heck did we just watch?!
The internet, and the rest of the world, love cats…
Much of the world also loves sushi, so some genius company decided to combine them!!
So now we have sushi cats!!
Through the magic of tasty sushi, kitty cuteness and a dash of photoshopping, these sushi cats have been brought to life!
The whole reason for their existence seems to be so people can buy pictures and post cards of them and things like that.
Though honestly we just like the video and song! LOLz!
Check out the video (above) to see some sushi cats in action.

Somewhere in Japan, a super computer
nerd genius is laughing his butt off.
Japan's National Police Agency, their version of the FBI, has been on the hunt for a cyber hacker that has been leading them around on crazy chases for MONTHS!
The NPA has even offered a three MILLION yen bounty ($34K) for his or her capture!
The latest cyber prank has involved some cuteness though

Looks like we're going to have to change our weekly Nature Killing Us All to a daily show!
Tuck in your kids extra tight tonight and tell them that everything is going to be okay as long as they STAY AWAY FROM THE OCEAN!
The reason being??? GIGANTIC SQUID!!!!
Filmed in the depths of the Pacific Ocean blue by Japanese scientists, a giant squid has been caught on tape.
These somewhat mythical creatures are hard to get a glimpse of and we're perfectly fine with that. But the Japan's Natural Science Museum snagged footage of the squid and it was broadcast all over the country!
The researchers teamed up with the Discovery Channel and Japanese station NHK, and both will be airing specials on the find later this month.
Check out this crazy huge squid (above) to see your new worst nightmare!
