Pardon the pun such as it is, but Erica Tennenhouse of Science breathlessly “reports” that—hold your breath (pardon the pun)—a fish “holding its breath under water” has been spotted “for the first time.” Scientific illegiteracy has spread so wide that people will fall even for this. Sorry Felicia 🤷♀️, but all fish (except for whales, dolphins, and frogs) can breathe under water.
I want you to literally thing about it, wherever in your brain makes you the most comfortable. How, pray you, might fish live in water if they can’t hold their breath there? Have you ever tried to live in water? Take it from me, it ain’t easy!
The day that we can hold our breath in water is the day we devolve back into the fish from whence we came forth.
“Monkey’s uncle” doesn’t even begin to describe what I’ll be.
