Obama Envious of Japanese Scientists?

Japanese scientists achieve what the Obama administration could not...transparency!

See-through goldfish could be used for research purposes, or make an expensive pet

South Korean scientists may have created a glowing cat, but Japanese researchers have successfully developed a transparent goldfish.

The clear goldfish allows observers to see the tiny fish's beating heart, which allows scientists to observe living creatures and reduces the numbers of dissections.

"You can see a live heart and other organs because the scales and skin have no pigments," said Yukata Tamaru, Mie University associate professor, in a statement to the AFP. "You don't have to cut it open. You can see a tiny brain above the goldfish's black eyes. Having a pale colour is a disadvantage for goldfish in an aquarium but it's good to see how organs sit in a body three-dimensionally."

See, Mr. President? It can be done! Heh.

  1. Maybe our usurper-in-chief should swallow one of these 'transparent goldfish' to see if the DNA might meld?

    But really why? He and his minions tell and or show their agenda everyday,socialism. Better to have a HUGE WAKE-UP PILL for the voters.

    Happy New Year to you and yours !

  2. Actually, I was tempted to make some remark about how "fishy" things were at the White House, too!
    A Happy New Year to you and yours as well!
