    Wonder what the poor bastards would have said if the study was more long term and the fish eggs hatched after they refilled the lake?

    Well, at my house, we had a long dry aquarium that we decided to refill. Put the plastic plants back in and in about three weeks, we had little yellow tropical fish. Given that, I'd say plants create fish. Of course, in order for me to be sure, I'll need a grant and some peer review.

    As a peer-for-hire I could back your new theory of fish creation for a reasonable chunk of your grant. In fact, I'd be honored to.

    How much Stimulus money was spent to Save or Create Jobs for this insightful and salient bit of research?

    So... you're telling us the fish must be harvested for consumption while they're still good?

    Am I understanding the conclusion correctly?
