Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you! To ring in the new year, I thought I'd share this link to "National Geographic's Top Ten Quirkiest Stories of 2004."

1. Herring Break Wind to Communicate, Study Suggests
Schools of herring communicate by passing gas, according to an unprecedented study. The fish apparently hear the bubbles as they're expelled, helping them to find each other in the dark and form protective groups.

What's really amazing is that this happens to be the same method I use when I'm camping with friends and get lost in the woods.
