What party is that fish running for? I would love a politician I could see right into the head of. No secrets!

Cool! sort of looks like a "Flipper" version of the visible man.

Revenant said...

Apparently the eyes can be rotated to look up through the transparent head.

Truth is stranger than science fiction.

Truth is stranger than science fiction.

That's one reason I read more nonfiction than science fiction these days. The real world's more surprising, most of the time.

That could give new ideas for crash helmets.

I always wonder if the bright lights of the submersibles end up blinding the fish down there that are used to permanent darkness.

Damn good aquarium. The enlarged photo looks at first like another breast blogging thread. Doc and the boys from Cannery Row must have caught many of these in the Pacific tidal pools. Life always surprises us with its magnificent variety. God must have had a good sense of humor on the day he designed some of his works of art.

I would have the skin on my face replaced with transparent material if it was possible.

That would be awesome. I would be a walking horror movie.

And I'll bet there are biologist chicks who dig that sort of thing. It would be like getting tattoos to attract goth chicks.

Creatures like that bring to mind a quote by the late evolutionary biologist J. B. S. Haldane:

I have no doubt that in reality the future will be vastly more surprising than anything I can imagine. Now my own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.

That's so cool.

Oh. I thought this thread was about porn.

I thought the professor was reading more of Titu's posting about what kind of hog he likes. You know the one's with the transparent head.

Trooper York said...

Hey here is a question. If your child has a sex change does make you a trans-parent?

I mean the modern world really confuses me and I don't want to hurt anyones feelings.

Michael Hasenstab said...

If you are very large and have a sex change, are you a trans fat?

Michael Hasenstab said...

If you have a sex change, then become a Mormon, do you have to go on a trans mission?

Trooper York said...

If you kid gets obessed with video games are a Tron-parent?

Michael Hasenstab said...

Does a Buddhist monk who has undergone a sex change, then meditates 20 hours per day practice being Trans Am?

Michael Hasenstab said...

Does an English major who has a sex change use trans positions when fucking?

Michael Hasenstab said...

I wonder if other fish swim up to the fish that has the transparent head and say "dude, I like totally know what you're thinking."

Trooper York said...

If you are a bald gay dad and get married and adopt a kid and live in the city earning your money traveling around the city singing a capella while going from train to train are you a Manhattan Trans-fer-parent?

Trooper York said...

Do the other fish call him a tranny and is that not politically correct?

Trooper York said...

Did Eddie Murphy ever offer to give the tranny fish a ride home from the pet store?

Perfectly inocently I assure you.

Trooper York said...

Do fish like the fish taco?

Do fish have a fish taco?

Do they call it something else?

I mean there are definitely lesbian fish, I saw one in saving Nemo.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

In fact is seems entirely appropriate.

Like the fact that most penguins are gay. It's just nature.

Michael Hasenstab said...

If you are a northern Russian who is a world class cellist, and you have a sex change operation and then look for a new gig, wouldn't your first choice be the Trans Siberian Orchestra?

Trooper York said...

Is transparent-head head better than regular head?

I mean head is always great but could you direct it better if you really saw what was going on?

Would Tony the Tuna like to pick up the transparent head fish and drive it back to his pad and stuff?
Put some Country Joe on the ipod?
Or maybe some Melissa Etheridge?

Michael Hasenstab said...

Would a transparent fish that had a boob job get transplants?

Transplants on Pamela Anderson would be interesting. The difference between those and her real boobs would be clear.

Michael Hasenstab said...

If a transparent man and a transparent woman were having sex, like, how would anyone know!

Michael Hasenstab said...

Oh. I know. An angry ex-girlfriend would say "Don't lie to me. You are so transparent I can see right through you, you prick."

Blogger needs a way to subscribe to a thread without you having to actually write anything.

I always loved and remembered the Glass Cat in the Oz books. You could see its organs. Like this fish's brain (?), which looks like a sectioned lime. Lime Brain.

Would this be better batter fried, seared, grilled...?
