    I have only seen flying fish once and it was…..really neat. There was a…school/swarm/flock? of them so jumping at the same time.

    Those things are totally training to take over Kansas.

    i think it’s flying to get away from a school of creationists preying on them.

    Wing in Ground Effect. This fish clearly has been studying Russian Aerospace and is mimicking an ekranoplan.

    No videos about flying squid?

    Thor Heyerdahl wondered why he found squids on the roof of the Kon-Tiki. His crew claimed they flew there. Then he saw it himself during a night watch: squids escaping from predators jumped out of the water. The roof was two metres above sea level…

    And then there are fying rays:

    That’s about the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen on the internet.

    Not the flying fish… that’s pretty cool and interesting, but not as mind blowing as the fact that A NEWS SITE RAN THE WHOLE DAMN VIDEO, and didn’t have idiotic voice-over ruining the whole thing. And it wasn’t in slow motion. And there was no cheesy music. They just let the video run… without succumbing to the temptation to babble incoherently over the silent video.

    I’m still in shock.

    Very very cool. Seen em a few times.
    But the thing that hit me was ‘may be the limit for the species’..and my only thought was ‘Yea, until they evolve lungs!’ with utter shock and fear they might actually do that. Fish have been known to do so.
    I also agree with Carlie ;)
