And Now our Goldfish can Drive

January 14, 2022 daryl bauer

There has been a lot of discussion recently about “what” or even “who” is science?  I am not sure I can keep track any more and I was trained as a biologist.  I can tell you that there are a whole lot of people who would not know “science” if it rear-ended them.

Speaking of which, there is no debaiting whether this is science or not:  Scientist successfully train goldfish to drive a vehicle.

Wow!  Man has been to the moon.  We are looking forward to going to Mars.  While we wait, might as well teach fish to drive pickup trucks!  Is this a great country or what?

You think that is just a “fake news” headline?  Well, watch for yourself:

Wait a minute, no wonder there has been this great fascination about water on Mars!  It all makes sense now, I am betting we have goldfish driving those Mars rovers around!  This explains everything!  After they find water, they will start driving around looking for a pile of fermented corn, or maybe hemp seed?

Here I thought it was cool to drive an Equinox with a walleye on the side of it.  Now I find out I am nothing but a pointy-headed nerd unless I have a Stizostedion as a chauffer.  (If I did, there would still be folks out there who doubt that I know anything)


Come to think of it, some of the drivers I see on the streets around here. . . . Well, if they were goldfish that would explain a lot of things.

On earth I wonder where a goldfish would drive?  Hey, I bet if you followed them you might find some really good fishing spots!  Might be even more productive than internet scouting!

Have a great weekend, watch your six.
