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
Japanese folklore, and spiritual beliefs has had a huge impact on western media and stories. Here is an post that I have put together explaining the awesomeness of Japan. (NOTE: This is for entertainment purposes only and to help people with essays, I have included source links to where I have found the info at. This is not meant to harm or make fun of in any way shape or form.)
The Sound of Silence is a horror games that dynamically adapts to a person’s greatest fear. It will deliver a different experience to each player. The game is said to be released in early 2014.

OMG I AM THE GRUMPUS
I’m the why am I awake most of the time, other times I am the last one, lol.
These are probably the best things ever.
I love that there’s a Mayhem tag on AO3.
The real 15 year old here is you, and I sincerely hope no one in your life ever suffers from drug addiction and has to have someone as condescending and unsupportive like you to deal with.
People take drugs for a gamut of reasons. Things like being misinformed about what they’re doing (being told one thing is another, being told by others that it’s cool, thinking it’s not harmful) escape (many people who suffer from depression, PTSD, schizophrenia, and other disorders who cannot access the primary health care/therapy system turn to drugs to alleviate their symptoms, as do many street youth without support systems, homeless people, abused women, queers with no support system) or a means to make money (people might turn to selling drugs as an avenue of making money when nothing else is available). So, do you want to call these people stupid? They’re stupid for being queer/rape victims/uneducated/mentally ill/poor so they deserve to be called stupid for suffering from drug addiction as a fallout of the hardships they experience from oppression?
Not to mention the other side of drug use. When a 40 year old white mom with 5 kids has really terrible back pain and borrows a Vicodin pill from her friend on her advice so that she won’t break down crying in pain while she drives them to school, is that drug abuse? Is that stupid? It should technically be drug abuse, shouldn’t it? Because she’s using an opiate-derived prescription drug without a prescription. But she’s a white, middle aged mother so you probably don’t think so. What about a student popping an adderall they got from a friend to get through finals? It doesn’t really do anything but keep them awake. Are they stupid? Are they a drug abuser?
People will do drugs because bad shit happens to them, or people will do drugs recreationally. Please explain to me why it’s legal to buy tons of alcohol and drink it daily, and smoke cigarettes which are known to cause lung cancer, but it’s ‘stupid’ for someone to want to occasionally smoke a joint or pop a molly at a party. Show your work.
I dabble in recreational drug use, and if you’re gonna call me a dumbass or a 15 year old, I probably won’t care about your opinion for even a minute.
