Friday Fun Fact!

A new species of chimaera has just been named after years of languishing unknown in museum collections. Chimaeras are related to sharks and are the oldest living group of fish in the world, haunting deep oceans for hundreds of millions of years. This new species, the Eastern Pacific black ghostshark, flies through watery darkness, thousands of feet beneath the waves off North America's Baja Peninsula.

A distinctive chimaera feature is the retractable sex organ males wear on their heads. Club-shaped and spiked on the end, scientists hypotheisize that the fellows use it to stimulate females or draw them in for mating.

Hey, some girls like it rough.

If they are the "oldest living group of fish in the world" then their lack of modesty must be working well for them. Funny post title, by the way.

Hey, did you see this article about the 126 new species found in the Mekong River area? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33022805/ns/technology_and_science-science/?GT1=43001
Thought you might find it interesting.

Males have been trying that approach since the beginning of time: show "it" to them to draw them in. It still doesn't work.

No, Frizz, I missed that one, cool!

ROFL, yes, men continues to be convinced girls are into that even though girls are generally repulsed. How DO they continue to survive?
