There has been a lot of discussion recently about “what” or even “who” is science? I am not sure I can keep track any more and I was trained as a biologist. I can tell you that there are a whole lot of people who would not know “science” if it rear-ended them.
Speaking of which, there is no debaiting whether this is science or not: Scientist successfully train goldfish to drive a vehicle.
Wow! Man has been to the moon. We are looking forward to going to Mars. While we wait, might as well teach fish to drive pickup trucks! Is this a great country or what?
You think that is just a “fake news” headline? Well, watch for yourself:
Wait a minute, no wonder there has been this great fascination about water on Mars! It all makes sense now, I am betting we have goldfish driving those Mars rovers around! This explains everything! After they find water, they will start driving around looking for a pile of fermented corn, or maybe hemp seed?
Here I thought it was cool to drive an Equinox with a walleye on the side of it. Now I find out I am nothing but a pointy-headed nerd unless I have a Stizostedion as a chauffer. (If I did, there would still be folks out there who doubt that I know anything)
Come to think of it, some of the drivers I see on the streets around here. . . . Well, if they were goldfish that would explain a lot of things.
On earth I wonder where a goldfish would drive? Hey, I bet if you followed them you might find some really good fishing spots! Might be even more productive than internet scouting!
Have a great weekend, watch your six.
