    [@JMJ] i want to experience the flying carp that jump into your boat when frightened. I’ll look for a recipe later. Also the goats that freeze up and fall over when startled.

    Raining fish ? I will never get to experience that, you lucky Geek. ;-)

    @David Roper – Maybe the water was too cold? ;-)
    @arbyaitch – And some guys get IT, some don’t. ;-)

    When I read the headline, I thought it was going to show something that I’ve seen twice in my life: Once in El Paso, Texas and the other while crossing the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Bridge, Louisiana. It was so blistering hot and on the Gulf of Mexico that the uplift from evaporation took small fish and flotsam with it. When they had ascended high enough for the water vapor to condense… it actually rained fish. :-o

    I tried this in a pool when I was younger, but i wrenched my back twisting and turning and the girl left me there to drown. Sad.
