So once upon a time I walked into work and I had a conversation with the man working the bar. Over the course of this conversation we talked about Star Wars and how he looked like Vincent Van Gogh. I told him he looked like Van Gogh’s self portrait, you know the one. I don’t often get flustered because of the male persuasion, but this one was different. I got flustered partway through that conversation. He told me old ladies are the only ones who ever tell him that’s what he looks like and that I must be classy for my age. I told him he must just look like a work of art. I also told him all these things about protocol droids and whatever else happened. More than one person since then has told me about the ways he describes me to other people. These are from Saturday. I want them to be somewhere because I kinda love them so much. Today could be a day that changes the course of my life and it might not be, but I still have memories like this with someone that took my breath away and left me speechless. I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

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.
