The day we all started saying, "Yo, Adrian!"

Happy National Megalodon Day! Meaning “big tooth”, we actually only know so much about Megalodons, piecing together fragmentary remains. We do know that its jaws were huge, and its size could have been as large as 60 feet — making it a potential predator of whales. But we can’t really agree on what it would have looked like; for example, whether it would have been great white shark style or more of a whale shark look. So screw it, the folks behind The Meg can make it do and have it look like whatever the hell they want.
