An update to one of the first Penny Arcade t-shirts, The Code 2.0 features the classic Konami Code, with the buttons made to look like they’re subway icons. It won’t get you 30 free rides though.
Fu Yandong commands goldfish to swim in various formations. Some say that the fish have been fed with magnets, while others say that the fish have been trained to follow laser light. Trick is at 1:45.

Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page and Kevin Bacon star in James Gunn’s Super, the story of an average guy who takes on a superhero alter ego after his wife falls for a charming drug dealer. (Thanks Brad!)
UK designer and model artist Kyle Bean has created an ironic project called What Came First? – a visual pun based on the saying, by crafting a chicken from egg shells. We’d love to see a series.
