An enormous crustacean that attached itself to a submarine scouring the depths of the Gulf of Mexico is eliciting shock, awe and a touch of skepticism among Web readers, but scientists say the critter is just an impressive example of a supersized species.
Photos of the beast were posted on Reddit, under the title “By God, it’s a monster!” by a user who said he worked for a deep sea surveying company. His crew found the creature hooked onto the bottom of a remotely operated vehicle, and estimated that the behemoth, which measures 2 1/2 feet long, was creeping along at a depth of about 8,500 feet.
Online investigations also helped identify the critter, which is a Bathynomus giganteus, or giant isopod. The crustaceans are related to shrimp and crabs, and are thought to dwell in the deep seas of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Giant isopods might make tasty prey, but they’re also hungry predators: The scavengers feast on carcasses of dead whales and fish. They have been known to attack sea-dwellers that are still alive and swimming.
That zealous appetite is probably one reason they’ve survived so long: Fossil records date these cockroaches of the sea back more than 160 million years, before the Earth’s continents were even formed.
While the first chapter of Life in the West merely touched on some of the dangers of frontier life in the world of Red Dead Redemption, Life in the West: Part II contains some more depth and detail on the atmosphere of revolutionary turmoil and social unrest that was prevalent during the time period, with gangs overrunning decrepit towns and roadside bandits a constant threat.
This entry in the Gameplay Series also sheds some more light on a few of the unique gameplay mechanics, including the mechanics of dueling and how the deeds you perform and the way dress impact how people of the world react to you.

Check out this wild machine that makes cocktails called a Falling Water. Some dude named Joseph Herscher made it in the garage of his flat. To much time on his hands? Or just a straight up legend. You be the judge.
For those who don’t have access to such a machine as this, here is the recipe for the drink:
– 30mls (1Oz) 42BELOW Feijoa Vodka
– Ch’i or Lemonade
– Long slice of seedless cucumber
Cut a long thin piece of cucumber on a diagonal. Rest it against the inside of a Highball glass. Fill the glass with ice, add 42BELOW Feijoa. Top with Ch’i or Lemonade. Booyah, your officially cooking with gas vodka.
