Shark Week is halfway over, but things IRL are getting weird. Wondering why everyone is talking about a dead shark on Twitter today? It’s because this baby shark was found decomposing on an Astoria-bound NYC subway last night.  RIP, little carnivore.

For some, it was also a virtual support network and a place to socialize.
"No one on the ‘net cares if I didn’t get a shower yesterday or smell some," said one interviewee, according a summary of the study. "They don’t judge me, you know? I feel accepted. I am accepted."
