Carpe diem

December 14, 2010

Speaking of flying animals, I was just reading an article in the New Yorker about these crazy Asian carp that have “invaded” the waterways of the good old U.S. of A.  They spoil habitats, kill native species, blah, blah, blah.  But of particular interest is that the motherfuckers jump.  Like right into your damn boat (if you had a boat, that is — hey, where’s my damn boat?).


The fact that Asian carp are now in this river and many others, sucking in plankton and growing big and reproducing and waiting to smack a Jet Skier’s face, is really not good. Possibly, these carp will change large parts of our national watersheds forever. We may be infected with a virus for which there is no cure.

Man, that’s ominous. But the videos are kind of crazy insane:
