Scientists Successfully Implant Lungs into Fish
Scientists have successfully created a goldfish that is capable of breathing atmospheric air. Using advanced microsurgery techniques, researchers at the New South Wales Veterinary Institute implanted a pair of frog lungs into the fish, which survived out of water for 2 hours.
The lungs were connected to the respiratory surface that were naturally found in the gills. The fish was able to conduct gas exchange through the lungs instead of the gills, which allowed it to breath in a terrestrial environment. A very humid chamber was constructed for the goldfish so that it did not dehydrate.
SCIENCE ISN’T ABOUT WHY IT’S ABOUT WHY NOT
i don’t think you guys understand how important this is if we’re able to put lungs in fish it means we may be able to put gills in humans which means we’re one step closer to becoming mermaids
you guys actually believe this and it’s hilarious. The fish in the picture above is getting operating on (fish surgery does exist). if you go to the original post it even says ‘April fools’
but Jesus Christ if it’s on tumblr it’s gotta be real right

The Simpsons: S23E8 - "The Ten Percent Solution" (December 4, 2011)
[Comparison: this Simpsons episode from 12 years earlier.]
Robert Downey Jr. reached 1 million followers less than a day after joining Twitter — 23 hours and 25 minutes to be exact — after sending out his very first tweet and introducing himself to the social media platform.
His first tweet was published on April 11 at 2:30pm PST. He has made five posts overall, two of which are replies.
This means Robert Downey Jr. technically now holds the fastest time to reach 1M followers, beating out Charlie Sheen (who holds/held the Guinness World Record at 25 hours + 17 minutes).

This is probably going to get quoted in every publication just because I said it. And I’m not even saying anything. I’m not talking about my films, I’m not talking about my life, and I’m not talking about the world. And yet, the media will print it simply because I said it. And at this moment in time, I bet there is an artist around the corner of this hotel, on the street, with a mind far beyond ours, but we will never listen to him simply because he has not appeared in a movie. And that is what is fucked up about our culture.
Avatar: the Last Airbender is about a regular human being learning how to be The Chosen One and the Legend of Korra is about The Chosen One learning how to be a regular human being and I just think that’s the coolest thing ever.
Every time I see this, it makes me happy.
