Did I just read that?

Both from the Dec 20, 2008 edition of the magazine "Science News":

"Some hybrid striped bass exposed to Prozac stopped eating and began hanging vertically in the water."

(There's nothing linguistically wrong with that--but the whole concept is amazing and funny.)

and also, less linguistically pristine:

"Slightly more than half of the live fish tested alone followed healthy-looking replicas of fish."

I wonder what the dead fish did?

And, I'm sure that our taxpayer dollars funded this activity. "The Treatment of Clinical and Manic Depression in Hybrid Striped Bass."
