Glow-in-the-dark shrimp. More seafood: a Seattle man recently bought shrimp from the grocery store and cooked them at home. After dinner he noticed that the leftovers were giving off an eerie glow. And he's not the only one - another man said that his "fingers glowed" after a crab dinner.

Experts think the creepy light is not pollution or chemicals, but a natural bioluminescence that many sea creatures possess. It's not necessarily a health hazard, but it is spooky - what would you think if you found your dinner glowing in the dark? (via Slashfood)
