Troll of the Day: British Embassy in Ukraine Helps Russia Find its Own Tanks

The British Embassy in Kiev sassily tweeted out a helpful guide on Wednesday to help the Russians identify their tanks in Ukraine, which they claim aren't actually there.

The image includes a graphic showing some of the features of a T-72BM tank, as well as photos of them reportedly spotted in the area in the past few months.

At the G20 summit this past week, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper told Russian President Vladimir Putin to "get out of the Ukraine."

Putin's response: "That's impossible because we are not there."

Insect of the Day: Freaky, Carnivorous Glow Worm Discovered in Peru

Favorite
- -

Nature photographer Jeff Cremer was working in the jungles of Tambopata, Peru a few years ago, when he uncovered several dozen worms in the soil glowing a strange green color.

Local entomologists had never seen anything like it before in the region but came to the conclusion that the animal is possibly the larvae of an unknown species of click beetle. He initially posted pictures of his findings on Reddit to help solve the mystery.

The .5-inch long worms have since been determined to be carnivorous as well, and use the glowing light to attract their prey into their terrifying jaws before chowing down.

Entomologist Aaron Pomerantz recently took a trip down to Peru with Cremer to investigate further, which you can watch in the video above.

Foot-in-Mouth of Day: ESPN Student Reporter Tweets ‘Joke’ During FSU Shooting
- -

There was another school shooting Wednesday night - this time at FSU in the library, where 3 people were injured, and the shooter was killed by police.

None of this warrants making any type of joke, but Marisa Martin, a student reporter associated with ESPNU's Campus Connection at the University of Alabama, thought otherwise in a Tweet posted last night.

"Reported gunman on the FSU campus. Maybe he is heading for Jameis."

Jameis Winston is the FSU quarterback who has been at the center of a number of scandals and legal issues over the past year or so.

After the Twitter backlash calling for ESPN to "#FireMarisaMartin", she fought back, adding that - while she hopes everyone is safe - she is entitled to her own opinions.

Her Twitter account was soon deleted, and she then apparently tweeted using the official Alabama Campus Connection account that she had been hacked. Riiiiiiight.

ESPN seems distancing itself from her, clarifying that while part of the program which lets students contribute stories to ESPN, she is neither an employee nor paid.
