So Zoo officials are investigating a Shark who gave birth with no guy sharks around. They're starting with the usual theories: the off chance it actuall is asexual reproduction (previously unknown in sharks), a bit of sperm that had somehow survived for years in the shark, or that a different breed of guy shark in the same tank did the deed (akin to "a Chihuahua impregnating a Saint Bernard"). But have they considered the possibility that that shark gave birth to the Shark Messiah? (Well, the newborn was stung to death after only five hours of life...but perhaps that stingray was the Pontius Pilate of that zoo tank!)

Quote of the Moment
"Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save."
--Will Rogers. It's rather a zen point of view, come to think of, it the importance of living in the moment, appreciate what you're doing for the sake of doing it.
