Who's the boss? ~ 誰是老闆?

A funny story many should have come across...

One day, all the parts of the body argued over who would be boss.

The brain explained that since he controlled all parts of the body, he should be boss.

The legs argued that since they took the man wherever he wanted to go, they should be boss.

The stomach countered with the explanation that since he digested all of the food, he should be boss.

The eyes said that without them, man would be helpless, so they should be boss.

Then the asshole applied for the job.

The other parts of the body laughed that hard that the asshole became mad and closed up.

After a few days the brain went foggy, the legs went wobbly, the stomach got ill, the eyes crossed and were unable to see.

They all conceded and made the asshole boss.

So the motion was passed. All the others parts did all the work while the Boss just sat and passed out the shit.

This proves that you don't have to be a brain to be boss......

It is such a joy to pamper our ever hungry goldfish with food and forget about the most important factor after food intake - digestion. A constipated animal with too much toxins accumulated in the body over time is definitely not a healthy animal. 

Goldfish does not have a stomach and thus, they cannot store their food for digestion. If fed too much, most of the undigested food will pass out together with their faeces through their long intestinal tracks. To aid digestion, food has to be broken into smaller pieces by a set of teeth located at the back of their throats. Without feeding them more food than necessary in every feed, goldfish will resort to scavenging for these undigested food in their waste and it may take up to 3 "poo-eating" cycles before all the unprocessed food are completely devoured.

In the tropical climate where the water is warm, the metabolism of the goldfish is high but food also turns foul rapidly. A constipated fish becomes bloated from the gases produced by fermented food in their intestines. To aggravate the situation, the rounder and shorter bodied fancy varieties usually have more problems with constipation as their intestines are cramped in a much smaller area. Allowing a suitable interval in between feeding times for food to be digested minimise the risk of constipation. It also encourages the goldfish to exercise as they scavenged for more food. In a way, it also reduces food wastage and helps to prolong the quality of the water.

My dream of creating a new variety of goldfish in 2006 has proven to be more than just an impulsive fantasy.
