Black iceberg photo goes viral on Reddit


A black iceberg has made a ton of fans today after a photo of it was posted on Reddit, despite the fact icebergs seem to spend an awful lot of time sinking luxury steam liners at the most inopportune moments, much to the despair of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.
