Goldfish Synchronized Swimming.

Think you can teach your pet stupid tricks? How about teaching your goldfish how to synchronize swim? Check it out: Hit play or go to Link [YouTube] - Thanks Lee!

My money says this is not at all real. For instance, watch how the fishes (side) fins flap in a machine-like manner. There's no randomness, the fish move and wiggle way too perfectly. Like someone posted on YT, probably uses magnets under the tank.

All right, they might actually be real fish, but something else is going on. The table/tank set-up is suspicious. Maybe there are some kind of glass partitions in the water; something's up.

I've actually seen this done. I was at a shopping mall watching some fish in a tank, when some random chinese dude walked up and started wiggling his fingers. The fish all started to swim in sync. I figure it has something to do with "schooling", they see the wiggling and think its other fish and follow it.

My concern is that terrorists may use this technique to train goldfish to deliver bio-weapons to critical water supply points in the U.S.

Something's got to be done!
