A New York woman has reeled in a freakish fish with two functioning mouths.Debbie Geddes says she caught the fish, which looks like a cross between an outer space alien and a bass, while boating on Lake Champlain with her husband. “When this particular fish bit, it felt like I had a nice fish on,” Geddes says. “I actually commented, ‘I hope it’s as big as it feels!’ When we got it in the boat I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! Two mouths!”And neither can the 5,000-plus viewers of photos posted on Facebook, many of whom have offered their theories on the strange water creature’s origin. While some believe the double-mouthed fish fell to earth from outer space, others blame pollution on causing the odd mutation. Still others think its face was ripped open by a hook, and somehow healed in such a way that the resulting hole opens and closes with the fish’s real mouth. Unfortunately, we’ll never know for sure. After snapping photos of the oddity, Geddess tossed it back into Lake Champlain.
It’ll be a blip in time not seen for another century – 01:02:03 04/05/06. That’s the third second after the second minute after 1 a.m. on Wednesday, April 5, 2006. Some call it a Gregorian glissando, a numeric quirk in the Western calender. Others see it as a positive portent for L.A., for the nation and for the world. “I feel like I know something’s going to happen – like a rush through my whole body,” said fortune teller Gina Lee of Northridge Psychic. “At that particular second, I do see good things for the nation. … There will be a change in the world for everyone.” One Los Angeles astrologer consulted charts for Los Angeles and for Greenwich, England – the international meridian at zero degrees longitude – and saw the dawn of sharing and cooperation among rich and poor nations. He also saw the signal for tremendous growth in L.A. “The city will shoot up, with houses being ripped down for high-rises; one-story strip malls will go by the wayside,” said astrologer Bill Mayer of Stars Over Los Angeles. “It all starts on that moment in time.” Others were both puzzled and excited by the orderly time and date. “Oh my God,” said Chatsworth author and political satirist Steve Young. “It’s the only thing that’s going in the right order in this country.” Paul Saffo of the Institute for the Future said Wednesday’s blip will be one more beguiling moment in man’s search for patterns within a random universe. But that didn’t stop the predictor of Y2K from being tickled by the sequence. “I love it,” said Saffo from his office in Menlo Park. “Oh, this is so cool. Oh man, last night as I was standing in my hot tub, I thought I felt the peacock feathers quiver in an unusual way.” For Mike Wyner, an up-and-coming astrologer whose birthday falls on Wednesday, it’s not a moment worth waking for. “It doesn’t do much for me,” said Wyner of West Hills. “I don’t think I’ll go out and pop a champagne bottle.” [email protected] (818) 713-3730 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
