WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

pew, pew!

SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT

YOU CALLED!?

This fish is not actually spitting bioluminescent spit…it’s spitting out its bioluminescent food! Some clever scientist has put some bioluminescent ostracods in a tank with some little fish. When agitated, these ostracods (tiny shirmpthings) secrete chemicals that, when combined, emit light.

Why?

You’re seeing why right here. Just before the fish spits it out, those light chemicals are filling up the belly of the fish. Now, it isn’t poisonous or anything…but the fish wants NOTHING TO DO WITH IT because the fish has predators too

So yeah, if you’re a little fish and suddenly you’re FREAKING GLOWING, your lifespan has just gotten a lot shorter. 

As soon as the fish realizes that there’s light emanating from its belly, it pukes out the glowing juices (and the little shrimp). You can actually see the ostracod in this gif swimming away down toward the bottom of the tank happy as a clam…or a shrimp. 

Evolution is AWESOME.

"The March of the Ghosts"

No matter how you live your life, it all someday ends
No matter how much you were loved by family and friends
Your soul fades away to the wasteland in the sky
And you join the March of the Ghosts the moment you die.

While your body is dead, your soul continues on
But as an empty vessel of blue goo; all sense of self is gone.
Your memories and feelings have withered away
Forever marching in a wasteland with no night and no day.

Time no longer exists; everything happened long ago
So there’s no reason to feel happy, and no reason to feel woe
Emotional stasis forever after, but never minding because
The March of the Ghosts is all that there is, and all there ever was.

The Real Ghostbusters first aired this day, September 13, 1986 with “Ghosts R Us.” One of my fav episodes. This is our homage cover to the series, issue #8 vol.2. Luis and I had a great time emulating the style of the show. What’s your favorite episode?

"Mrs. Rogers’ Neighborhood," of course.  But there were episodes I enjoyed (though fewer and farther between) all the way up to the final 5th season.  Here’s to 28 years of my most prolific fandom, and to many more besides!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PETER!!!!! 28 Years ago today you became my favourite toon ever!
