Poor little sea monkeys. I used to keep them as pets. Ordered them from
the back of a comic. They looked nothing like the picture indicated they
would. Little king and queen, with all their children floating on the
backdrop of their under-sea kingdom. Still very cool however.
I'm poking fun above, but it's funny how things change. I myself used to
be one of those kids that would take an animal, fish for example and
pull it's eye out with a hook so you could catch another (Perch). This
was for no other reason other than entertainment purposes, as I was not
gonig to eat the tiny perch. And just to note for anyone who wants to
know, Perch definitly prefer an eye to a kernel of corn. They will even
eat their own eye if placed back in the water and tanted with it. Now
it's that's not sick... I'm going to have to re-think the definition.
I remember my friend and I leaving them on the road for traffic to hit
and laugh and hoot in absolute extacy in the disgust of it. We had put
their little Perch corpses up on main street up far away from the water.
I remember that little stint getting written up in the local paper by
someone expressing their outrage. We decided to time-capsule this
historical event and scrapped up the remains "King fishie" who was now
inside out after a 4x4 had done it's work. This was archived by way of
jamming the tin can between two brick buildings where no one could
access but a very thin child. Years later I did go to attempt to
retrieve, but the can was gone. I immagine it must have been a nasty
surprise for the kid that did go and get it. No, it's not two tickets
to the policemans ball.... but....
I grew up on farm, so many animals of every sort met their demise in
every concievable fashion. Moving to the city and many years later I
took up fishkeeping. Now I can't even stomach the idea of sport angling
anymore. I've tried it a couple times in recent years and find myself
sympathizing with the fish. I could never stomach eating it, even with
the absence of pollution.
Now we all know that if we were stuck in the wilderness the fish would
have to die because we gotta eat. I'm okay with that. However, short of
a collaps of civilization or I get lost in a very large wilderness, that
just isn't going to happen. I'll just keep eating my packaged meats and
not think of the source thank-you-very-much.
Anyone know where I can get my hands on some Tardigrades? I think I
would like to keep some on my desk. If my faith in modern consumerism is
correct, then there should already be a pre-packaged "Sea-Monkey"
version for kids.
P.S. Aquatic plants are cool.
