I didn't know until this morning that icebergs could be striped. However, apparently that's just one of many variations. Here's where to find some and learn more. [More beneath the surface.]

And now for a performance of Bach's "The Iceberg Variations" followed by Handel's "The Iceberg Variegations".

That flickr page full of iceberg tags: amazing. This post has turned me into an iceberg fan. Also, thanks for linking to jonson's earlier post, which I had missed.

Dear Daily Mail caption writers and editors:

Cool iceberg though.

There is something about this photo that made me think of a boat full of people in front of a giant monster who was about to strain them like a whale does to krill.

It's probably just some viral marketing campaign for toothpaste or something.

Favorite iceberg fun fact: Floating ice is graded according to size. Favorite size: Bergie Bits.

Wow! Now I understand why they tell you to keep your kayak at least as far away as the berg is tall. I didn't think they'd roll over that violently.
