Comment of the Week

“Interesting that researchers were able to find volunteers for the rectal oxygen delivery study. I guess these brave souls were not afraid of being the butt of their family and friends jokes … and embraced the opportunity as a means to an end.

Animal traits or parts … keeping with the fish theme, having gills so that you could breathe underwater for long periods of time might be cool. The animals I admire most are the large cats (cougars, panthers, leopards etc.), so powerful, graceful, nimble and fast.”
