Wow.

Friends of mine should be very worried.

I've long talked about my fish being smarter than everyone gives them credit for. Now I find this mentioned in Wired Magazine.

It's hard not to order at least the book. I wonder if it would work for my angel fish. It would go a long way for him to make up for being a such a shithead now that he is older.

Here is the guy's website. Pretty damn cool if you ask me.

PS - to those many I owe communication to, it is coming soon! Yesterday was a lethargic and mopey evening for me, mixed in with some work. I kind of shut myself off from the world there.

It frightens me that someone actually came up with something like that. But it does seem kinda neat- something to do with fish other than watch them swim around.

I still like what I did to fishies for my high school science project. :)

The affects of electricity on fish.
For a 2 week period they would get little shocks to see if they adapted to their environment.

Did the project because the Lake in VT has electric cables running underneath it and some of it does get exposed.

The day I see the guppies in the other tank screaming "Pele! Pele!" I'll know its time to move out.

I had an Angelfish when I was young. It got huge and lived for much longer than I thought a little fish could. I wonder now if he was bored...

My angelfish was such a delightful treasure when he was young. Gracefully swimming around, appreciating me, loving his neighboors. Just a nice, nice fish.

Now, he is a big fat piece of shit who agressively tries to eat anything, has swallowed smaller fishes whole, and is an ungrateful bastard.

Here is an interesting note... I have no real idea what gender he is. But, when he was young and graceful, I used female pronouns. Now, only male.

Because he is an asshole.

Ah, the wonders of gender stereotyping. It pops up everywhere. That reminds me that I should cross-dress again before it gets too hot.

My Angelfish also ate other fish. I think that's why it got so huge. I didn't realize what was happening (I'm hopelessly naive sometimes) and I kept buying him "friends". Then I found a half-eaten orange fish bumping along the gravel one day. I figured the orange ones must taste bad.

You know, I was looking at that page yesterday thinking "who on earth would DO something like that?".... and now I know ;)
