A Blog From A Fish's Perspective

Intro goes here...

the sense of growing panic, the feeling that gibberish is being passed off as coherent conversation, the fear that the world is engaged in meaningless discourse masquerading as meaningful exchange— these are the blurry states individuals with ADD negotiate everyday [sic].”

Well folks, I want to introduce The Gibberish Quote of the Day...or GQD.  

You must remember that I'm a fish with the name Cyprinid Cynicalis, and whatever I say here is from a fish's perspective.  In your terms, it would be akin to your metaphor of having a 30,000-foot view...or in other words, having "The Big Picture".  In my terms, it's simply my observations of you humans being human; it’s taking a critical - and an occasional irreverent - look at you and your behaviors.

Now here's some encouraging news about the private sector stepping forward to do what's right by us wildlife and the habitat we rely on.

I mentioned hope and inspiration in my previous post, and this is the stuff that keeps my friend - The Don Quixote of Fish Biologists - going. 

Here's an excerpt from an uplifting article:  By this time next year, I believe we’ll reflect back on 2017 as the year that the private sector stepped up to protect our land, water and wildlife for future generations.

It's hope and inspiration that keeps most of you humans going, and I can understand that.  There are times that I lose hope when I see, or hear, about your incessant barrages of habitat altering activities - both aquatic and terrestrial.  Some of my ilk have even got downright depressed over the situation; but are fortunate to have your pharmaceuticals to rely on to get them through those tough times (reminds me of the Rolling Stones song Mother's Little Helper).  Here's a great example:

Here's a sad story of one of the many dedicated observers, who knowing what the dangers were, still would probably not give in to the threats and corruption that is rampant in the high seas fisheries.  If I had a hat, it would be off to people like Keith Davis.

Although this isn't a tweet on Twitter, my comments will be less than 140 characters; I'll let others tell the story.

Randy Olson thinks it's a big deal

Here's the Guardian's spin.

 

I've said this somewhere before, but I feel compelled to say it again.  Don't you humans realize that in this day and age, with so many pressing issues, that you must be as efficient and effective as possible?  I've lost track of how many times I've heard one of your politicians claim that you are vernturing into "uncharted waters".  Maybe that picture on the left plays a big part in that!

On today’s morning walk there’s nothing as morally challenging, or as interesting, as a handsome man in cycling shorts.

Here's the second uplifing post of the new year!  Unfortunatley, there's only going to be another few weeks before my blood pressure rises to where certain people will accuse me of being way too cynical about the events of the day.
