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
this scares me like what if someday a whole bunch of fish have lungs in them and they hated the surgery and they end up rebelling and killing us i mean i don’t know about you but if I saw a herd of fish running at me i would drop everything and fucking run
they gave them lungs not legs they’d be like fucking magikarp flopping around on the ground being useless pieces of shit
liztheking- so basically planet of the apes with Fish instead of Apes?
Hey! So before I begin I got this information from Vsauce my favorite science youtuber! He’s great, you’ll learn a lot from him, I know I did.
So anyway, there are 3 types of fears as examined by Stephen Kind
1) Gross-out: so gore, disease, nasty things
2) Horror: unnautural things, like a giant spider
3) Terror: when somethings creepy
What makes something creepy is ambiguity
For example masks. It masks facial expression, you don’t know how that other person is feeling. Are they a threat? Or are they nice? You just don’t know.
Francis T Mcandrew and Sara S. Koehnke described being creeped out as an ambiguity of threats from others. (click on the pictures to enlarge)
Creepy things maybe a threat, but they are also kind of not. Like a teddy bear with a full set of human teeth. So our brains just don’t know what to do.
So instead of carrying out a typical fear response, we just feel uneasy.
So… this started with just a thought I had of reminiscing of how fun The Magic School Bus was as a kid… than I was thinking of how she even would get those frickin’ kids on field trips all the time… and then I remembered Whitest Kids U’ Know….
It all went downhill from there.
This is what this is: [link] (Srsly… you NEED to hear it to make it as funny as it is…)
(This is actually pretty old now but I thought that tumblr might enjoy it as well so I went and cut it up to fit on tumblr
as well as uncensored cuz fuck that shit this ain’t DA)
Here’s the original Deviant post though.
The face she makes in the last one xD
o h my god
