The Undertaker retires from WWE after nearly 27 years following Roman Reigns defeat….30 Minutes After Wrestlemania Ended
“My biggest worry in life, as far as wrestling is concerned, is that I’m in the ring and some father who watched me for years takes his son and he goes, ‘You know son, this is The Undertaker here; wow, I wish you could have seen him when…’
That means it’s time for me to hang it up.
Hopefully the guys that I work with, they would tell me, ‘You know what, Take’? You might need to think about something…’ You know? Because I would hate to know that anybody ever [held] back to protect me. Because that’s not what I’m about. I’ve made my money and I’ve done well and all that. Why I wrestle now is because I enjoy this.
As long as I can go out and I can hang with our top guys, I got no reason to leave.”
500 year old Wreckage of the Swedish Warship Mars
The Mars sank on May 31, 1564, off the coast of a Swedish island called Öland. She came to rest on the seafloor tilted to her starboard, or right, side. Low levels of sediment, slow currents, brackish water, and the absence of a mollusk called a shipworm—responsible for breaking down wooden wrecks in other oceans in as little as five years—combined to keep the warship in remarkable condition.

In 1731 king Frederick I of Sweden set a taxidermist to work on his recently deceased lion. The problem – the taxidermist had never seen a lion before
Frederick I of Sweden received a lion as a gift from the Bey of Algiers, and was so enamored with the beast that when it died he tried to have the beast taxidermied.
The only trouble was that for whatever reason, the taxidermist was only given the pelt and the bones of the beast to work from. The story goes that the poor taxidermist, lacking the modern conveniences of Wikipedia and Google image search just didn’t have the find understanding of large feline bone structure to put together a convincing facsimile. What you see below is the result.
