The “deepest ever” living fish have been discovered, scientists believe.
A UK-Japan team found the 17-strong shoal at depths of 7.7km (4.8 miles) in the Japan Trench in the Pacific – and captured the deep sea animals on film.

I found this both stunning and eerie — truly an insight into just how otherworldly this world of ours can at times be!
I think the scientist who found the fish “quite cute”, however, just might have the odd issue in need of addressing!

Farting cows and sheep are bad for the environment, as I’m sure we all already know. They produce methane gas which is more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide. An Australian scientist has a solution, however.
Switching from beef to kangaroo burgers could significantly help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, says an Australian scientist.
“Tut-tut, tut-tut,” says Skippy.
“What’s that, Skip?” I reply. “The mad* Australian scientist wants to eat you?”
Is there much money to be made from kangaroo farming in the north-east of England, do you think? Could be a win-win situation, methinks… unless you’re a kangaroo…
*Not that the scientist in question is really mad. If you’re his lawyer, that was just a joke. Honest.
