|02:54 pm - aw, where'd my amazing larry icon go|
I just blew someone's mind by telling them that coral is a living creature. While it's underwater, at least. And that some coral reefs are nothin but a big ol' pile of dead coral skeletons. After this lovely lesson, someone probably won't be scuba diving around the Great Barrier Reef at any time soon.
Some days it's the little pieces of knowledge you drop that mean so much.

idgi, they're scurrd of the live corals now?
And just when they're getting used to that, you can tell them about limestone.
Tomorrow I think I'm gonna reveal the big secret about sponges.
...And this splendid cutlet before you? Manta ray, harvested by my faithful crew!
What did they think it was?
Wait, someone thought it wasn't living creatures? I'm especially surprised if a certified diver didn't know this!
Heh! Did you tell him that little coral spores float around looking for a place to attach themselves and grow?
Since he didn't know the basics, were you tempted to suggest that they might really love to roost on his naughty bits and turn them into a coral reef? (Mixtures of truth and fact are the best when messing with people.)
