A woman on a jet ski is minding her jet ski business when an 8 foot bony sturgeon flies out – okay leaps out – of the river and smacks into her face. Knocks her unconscious.
Woman and sturgeon are doing fine.
I did not make this up. I heard this one day last week on NPR.
Apparently this happens 8 to 10 times per year, this leaping sturgeon thing. The interviewer asked if this happens per chance with other fish. The guy [some official I do not recall who] said, yes, actually. He himself has been hit in the face by a flying mullet.
[You can listen to this on NPR at the above link. But I pretty much covered it.]
How this may relate to me in any fashion whatsoever? I had no idea sturgeon grew in Florida – no wonder so many of my relatives moved down there.
