I like how they put up a force field to keep the fish from eating the kid.
And for those of you who say “umm, it’s glass”, might I remind you that the kid can’t touch the glass because the electrons in his hand are repelled by the electrons in the glass, so it’s all about the electromagnetic FORCE.
So I’m right.
*Except about that. Google tells me it’s actually spelled “Thpppt”.
Fish that just got one of those “grab the book nearest you and turn to page X” memes and is honestly baffled.
Who has a single book that is clearly the “nearest”? Do you measure from the center of your body mass? From your outer surface? If it’s not clear, are you supposed to get a measuring tape? What if you walk nearer a different book on your way to get the tape and back? Do you have to measure the distance to every book along that path to pick the right one? What happens when you reach out to measure, changing your outer surface’s proximity to the book? What if you go through all this effort to find that there is no page X? What if the book is only X-4 pages long? What if page X is blank? What if page X was torn out in a fit of frustration the last time you had to go through this exercise.
This fish thinks the Internet is too complicated and goes back to reading.
(and before you ask, the fish can read underwater because of the SCUBA* gear.)
The butterfly splitfin is sort of extinct in the wild. I say “sort of” because it was declared extinct, then they found some more, then they found others that had escaped captivity.
So it is, perhaps, more fair to say that their population has been greatly reduced and then dispersed throughout the area so, while not extinct in the wild, the easiest way to see them is still at zoos.
Lumpsucker realizing, to his shock, that Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” could be about a horde of young Sidhe predators who invade in the summertime, abducting all the pretty humans to be slaves in the underworld, leaving small towns desolate and longing for what they have lost, just as the glamour fades and, with it, all specific memory.
The books say these are also called “carpet sharks” because of their striking patterning, but I have to believe that the fact that they lay on the bottom of the ocean floor has something to do with it as well.
