TRAUMA, HEARTACHE, CIRCLES

It's been a week since Will Smith smacked Chris Rock at the Oscars. Why are you still talking about this? The Oscars aren't interesting, Will Smith isn't interesting, his wife isn't either. Absolutely no one who was there is. These are all boring plastic people.
It's been a week; don't you have anything going on in your own life?

Here's something to work you up:


BELGIUM EYES BAN ON ROUND GOLDFISH BOWLS BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO STRESSFUL

Goldfish bowls could be banned in Belgium because of the 'stress' they cause to fish.
Round tanks often have a smaller water surface area than square or rectangular ones, which affects the amount of oxygen absorbed into the water.
A small surface area risks the 'health and wellbeing of the fish', according to Belgian government documents.
"We know that the round jar has an impact on fish stress," animal welfare minister Bernard Clerfayt told La Capitale newspaper.

If you are really set on your round bowl, this blog suggests floating a piece of tofu in it.
Or a French fry.

Or, for something with far greater verisimilitude, a gefilte fish patty.
Gefilte fish always reminds me of green curry paste.
The combo is dee-liscious!
