Oh, they are talking about a goby from Hawaii. They climb up steep waterfalls using their goby suction cup. They evolved a second suction cup on their mouth and climb up like an inch worm. They can go 100 meters up. :O

Holy crud.. So the gobies live in the freshwater, and lay their eggs there. When they hatch they are tiny larvae that get swept down the mountain back into the ocean where they develop, and once they're old enough they climb back up. What a crazy life cycle. O.o

Has anyone else heard about the gun people of whatever are trying to pin gun violence on violent video games like call of duty and halo? Hello call of duty and halo did NOT exist 20 30 years ago so it couldnt be theyre fault.

Wahoo 2 hours of homework, tired
I know, and gun violence doesn't stem from guns either. It stems from psychotic people as it always has. First rocks, then clubs, then arrows, then swords, and now guns. Psychos will be psychos whether there are guns or not, heck I could kill with a pen or a shoe lace if I were so inclined.

Between society not wanting to step on toes and anger over tragedy they don't know where to place the blame and are thus confused. So guns make an easy scapegoat because society doesn't want to blame the problem, itself. We created the psychos and then wonder why they kill, it'd be comical if it weren't so tragic!

How old is Sushi?

Kietic, I agree. Societal problems have always been responsible for psychotic people. Not enough resources to help them understand themselves and for society to understand them. Not like Dexter (the tv show) who is unbelievably good looking. I dream about him for goodness sakes. I am in love with Dexter. Not Michael C. Hall (the actor who plays Dex) but the character Dexter.

Just finished Empire of the Sun. I was more disturbed by the mental condition of the main character than by the brutalities he described. o.O In this day and age, the character probably would have been diagnosed as ADD or ADHD or even borderline personality disorder.

OH? What is this Empire in the Sun? (Maybe you already told me about it and I added it to my goodreads)
