Unlikely underwater sports through the aquatic eye of Photoshop.Unlikely underwater sports through the aquatic eye of Photoshop.

In the future we will all be able to take part in the great spectable that is Dolphin Racing. I wonder if anyone submitted anything of the Blitzball variety - that would have just been nerdtastic.

Meet the brand new world chess champion, a nineteen year old from Norway.Meet the brand new world chess champion, a nineteen year old from Norway.

He's already got a clever nickname, 'Mozart of Chess', and he has no interest in becoming the next Bobby Fisher (in the sense that Bobby Fisher went a little crazy and then disappeared).

Jupiter's moon might be home to a variety of aquatic fish-like life.Jupiter's moon might be home to a variety of aquatic fish-like life.

That amount of oxygen would be enough to support more than just microscopic life-forms: At least three million tons of fishlike creatures could theoretically live and breathe on Europa, said study author Richard Greenberg of the University of Arizona in Tucson.

A handy tutorial on how to make your very own fisheye lens.A handy tutorial on how to make your very own fisheye lens.

Another title for this tutorial would have been 'a guide to recycling broken SLR lenses for use with your digicam' (not that there's anything wrong with that). Now excuse me while I scour eBay for a box of broken SLR lenses.

Nissan finds that emulating fish helps robotic cars avoid crashes.Nissan finds that emulating fish helps robotic cars avoid crashes.

The automaker studied how large schools of fish can move without colliding. It says Eporo imitates three rules of fish movement: avoiding crashes, traveling side by side, and keeping close to other members of the school.

...that doesn't mean you're going to reel in the Mr. Spock of the sea. Fish ears are inside their bodies. But, as in humans, their ears perform a major role in sensing movement and whether the animal is upright — abilities that are important for survival.

Important Quest

I had been reading a lot of PBF Comics at the time of making this comic and I had wanted to try something different from the whole 'guy on the left says this, guy on the right says that' scenario.  End result was what you see above.  Was fishing really essential to saving the Princess this time around?
