Mar 17, 2011: Acapulco schools of fish



Live fish this time instead of dead ones: Acapulco is experiencing weird schools of fish, so thick that they blacken the water. They think it must be related to the tsunami halfway around the world... but how??

More amazing pics at the link.

Looks like a shark



Wombat  Thursday Mar 17 06:11 PM

Fish swim in schools for protection, right? So these fish are trying extra hard to protect themselves by swimming in an extra tight school: they are frightened of something. Yes it seems reasonable that they could be frightened as a result of the tsunami.



Aliantha  Thursday Mar 17 07:34 PM

We get schools of bait fish here like that. You should see the sharks going crazy for them.

This is a picture from a particularly large school from a couple of years ago.

I'm sure these will taste a lot fresher. The last fish fry left stains on my eyeballs.



SPUCK  Friday Mar 18 06:04 AM

Neat pictures.

It looks like the magnet thingies in Wooly Willie.

Looks like they're trying to escape the photographer's feet. Bet they stink.

Or perhaps the whole Japan thing awakened something dark and deep that was best left undisturbed? Are the fish trying to warn us of something?


infinite monkey  Friday Mar 18 12:29 PM

Imma gonna tell you sort of the same thing I told my friend who insisted that the fish in her tank was swimming upside down and weird because the fish "wanted us to know" that it was pregnant.

Fish don't really give a hoot whether you know about them or not. I don't even think they know you exist, let alone that they would get in a group to warn the humans of the upcoming apocalypse.

Fish are selfish like that. Egocentric little fishies.

thank you. 11 posts? Cellar, I am disappoint.


Aliantha  Friday Mar 18 10:44 PM

Fish swim upside down because their swim bladder is out of wack.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 20 10:37 AM

The tsunami changed the currents, and water temperatures, along the shoreline.



SPUCK  Monday Mar 21 04:36 AM

The fish are infected with Facebook.

I simply searched for "sheep smileys".
Picked one.
Copied the link to it.
Pasted it in here using the 'mountain' button.
Spattered words around using spectacular artistic talent and lots of <Enters>


infinite monkey  Tuesday Mar 22 08:27 AM

Oh, I thought you used existing Cellar smilies and somehow drew the sheep bodies around them.

Ha! The mountain button. Took me a second on that one too. Why, it is a mountain!

Do those fish qualify for a PELL grant?

They might. They might also get a "sub" sidized loan. Have them fill out a FISHFA.

And if they default on that, they will be considered "sub-prime", since that krills their credit.

first time trying this pun thingy. Don't throw anything at me!
