I'm thinking I should register at PoeTV Portal of Evil (proper), if only because the comment community there seems to have both a sense of humor and a functioning brain between them. Skimming through the various nature videos (the bulk of my video consumption on THE INTERWEBS tends to be either nature documentary-ish footage or footage of people's pets; other people don't interest me that much, nor do most of their productions) I found a number of gems that were greatly enhanced by the comments on them.

http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=8416 - Clever use of a digital camera screen to show a cuttlefish its own image. The voice narration is especially awesome, as is the cuttlefish going "wtf?" at 1:15.

http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=57627 - In fact, if they had been underwater, this is what might have resulted. Note how much the guy's arm moves while the cuttlefish is tugging on it. Youch.

http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=44724 - One of the comments suggests that the crab might actually be a parasite species of the jellyfish, but otherwise this seems like one of nature's "whoopslol" moments. Crab + giant jellyfish = ???

http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=31115 - Scallops! Barrel rolls! Underwater cameras! Scallops doing barrel rolls into underwater cameras! You'll need to see it to believe it! (The "bonk" at the end does me in every time.)

http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=9948 - And because I need to maintain my street cred as a horrible person, have a Gordian worm video. SFW, but not safe for sanity. Or your lunch. Or small children. The comments on the PoeTV page still crack me up, even if you have to follow an offsite link to get at the video.

ETA: http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=9366 - Oo, oo, bonus horribles! I was wondering where this video of Cordyceps in action had gone.
