Advertisement of the Day: This Subway Ad Looks Like Something Out of Mad Max

We get a little bit closer to that dystopian future of our dreams everyday. Sometimes an advertisement notices how close we are. An subway billboard in Beijing has done just that. The advertisement is for a sports haze mask and features a female running with a face mask that looks like a souvenir from Fury Road. A sports haze mask is for people attempting to exercise in heavy smog areas, like Beijing. Twitter reacted, as it's wont to do, welcoming the new oncoming dystopia.

'So You Have Chosen Death' Memes Lament Risky Decisions

The drama of Lord of the Rings has always lent itself well to dank memery, and we're happy to report that this format featuring the villainous Saruman is making a bit of a comeback on Reddit. The scene being used is from The Fellowship Of The Ring, a moment in which Saruman offers Gandalf a choice between joining him or dying. Gandalf refuses to help Saruman, who remarks "So you have chosen death." The foreboding line is generally being used in much lighter contexts - think family quibbles and "things i don't like" style memes. They're pretty good, and we're happy to see the format is alive and well.

Funny Saruman memes, Lord of the rings memes, so you have chosen death, dank memes.

This rubber duck has been making waves worldwide! Dutch artist Florentjin Hofman locally created these massive ducks in cities around the world including Hong Kong, Baku, Saint-Nazaire, Sydney, Pittsburgh, and more recently, and more controversially in Toronto. These ducks have varied in size, with the biggest being the one in France, which was over 20 meters tall wide and in length. They are all temporary installations, and financed by a yogurt company.

We're all familiar with the story of Mulan from the classic '90s Disney movie, but what you probably didn't know is the lesser-known tale of Captain Li Shang questioning his sexuality. Being the '90s and all, people weren't as comfortable talking about different sexual orientations as we are now, but the story is finally coming out of the closet! (sorry.)

All jokes aside, please enjoy this hilarious retold version of Mulan!

Never-Before-Seen Albino Panda Has Been Discovered In the Mountains Of China

According to China Daily, the infrared camera captured the incredibly rare footage of a fully albino panda in the mountains of China's Wolong National Nature Reserve. The images were released to the public this past Saturday and researchers say it is the very first time an entirely while panda has ever been identified. 

Li Sheng, of Peking University, told Xinhua news agency, the never-before-seen albino panda seems to be at most 2 years old. "Judging from the photo, the panda is physically strong and taking steady steps, suggesting the gene mutation is not affecting its normal life."

And being albino, the bear might be more sensitive to the sun but in no way should affect its ability to reproduce. If it were to reproduce, however, the offspring would only inherit the albinism if both parents carried the gene, as it is a recessive trait. In a 2014 census, it was revealed that roughly 1800 giant pandas are left in this world, according to the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF), marking their status has "vulnerable". 

Officials say that they will attempt to continue track of the bear by installing more motion cameras. 

And while experts knew albinism occurred in pandas, this is the very first time it's been captured on camera! Check out the image below!
