The Tragic Optimist

because this is cool

I have other posts bouncing in my head, they will be written, but I have to share this news from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.  Because if I was the fish they recently studied, you would be able to see the posts bouncing around because it has a transparent head.  And the picture of the siphonophore jellie that it eats at the end of the article looks absolutely unreal.  Nature sometimes blows my mind with it’s awesomeness.



  1. The Monterey Bay aquarium is one of my most favorite places in the world! If you haven’t gone, I highly recommend it!

    So incredible!! The video was excellent as well.

    I would be very hesitant to have a transparent cranium. Wouldn’t it be like having a comic-strip thought bubble over your head all the time revealing your true opinions/judgments??!! bad idea :0
    or would it just mean people could just literally see you roll your eyes into the back of your head every time they make a bad joke?

  3. wow, that is one insane looking fish!!! so totally cool
