Fossil sea-scorpions bigger than humans
I think somebody should come up with a way to breed a very large shrimp. That way, you could ride him, then after you camped at night, you could eat him. How about it, science?--Jack Handey
Scientists have recovered the fossilized claw of an 8-foot sea scorpion from a quarry in Germany.
They call it "an amazing discovery," I call it "proof of concept." I know, shrimp and scorpions aren't that closely related. The point is that giant arthropods ruled the earth. With sufficient ingenuity, perhaps one day giant shrimp will rule our grocers' freezer sections.
Imagine tucking into a succulent scampi roast, instead of a Thanksgiving turkey. Picture a shrimp so big you could impale it on a rotating metal skewer and shave off slices of shrimp schwarma?
How 'bout it, science?
