    Goldfish Driving

    thought people might find this interesting (not saying anything about filters or what happens then the fish drives somewhere you didn't want it to).

    The only way to go on is to go on. To say "I can do this" even when you know you can't.

    Amusing enough concept, but fatally flawed from an animal welfare point of view. Regardless of the designer's comments about reducing the speed, the fish will still be stressed during the transfer between aquarium and "tank" and there's a constant risk of it banging into something. I remember having an exercise ball for gerbils, and having to chase after it to stop them crashing into walls and furniture.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.
