there was a long period of time when most of that one boy band had hair colors other than black like shingo had very bright blond hair and kimutaku and nakai had different shades of brown
and then suddenly, all five of them had black hair again and my mom was like “yay I don’t feel old and out of style anymore”
as a general rule of thumb: if a product makes you want to get a pet fish, you are probably not getting the fish for the right reasons
A guy designed a device that lets you take your fish for a walk.
When Mike Warren-Madden worried that his pet fish Malcolm was getting bored, he decided to do something about it. He spent weeks at the drawing board, designing a unique device – an Aquatic Perambulator – that would allow him to take his fish for a walk.
soyrwoo, how does this make you feel?
It seems pretty unnecessary and stressful for the fish… moving a fish to a different container can be stressful enough, and fish transported over long distances are usually kept in the dark to reduce stress. As far as Malcolm is aware, he’s in an unknown environment and is completely exposed during these walks.
Fish can be understimulated, but that’s solved by rearranging tank decorations or adding tankmates (goldfish like to have friends!). A lot of the articles on the device say that Malcolm was kept alone in a bowl, so it was very likely that he was “bored,” but walking him just fulfills the strangely common human desire to treat all animals as if they are dogs.
