mythman~I have seen that episode and I still think that fish memory is around the 3 second mark. This fact has been in long standing in many zoological circles. But, I respect your right to have a different opinion! Thank you for the comment.

the "fish have a three second memory" "fact" is bogus. The Mythbusters tested that and proved it wrong!!!!!!!

Did you know that a parrot can make multiple sounds at once. A study was made where a parrot was recorded and played very very slow, it has a psychedelic melody, it's like listening to a psychedelic orchestra because there are so many sounds, but the melody pattern is clear.

secretmemoir~Thanks for the read. I was amazed at the whole 11 brain thing also, you would think with that much brain power they could come up with a quicker mode of transportation?! Looking forward to your next hub.

Nellieanna~ Thank you for the comments. At times I find myself wishing for a three second memory! You bring another good point to page,...I too giggled a bit! Glad you had fun, I did as well.

I'm still wondering - how does a goldfish even translate anything it might want to remember to goldfish language in 3 seconds? Doesn't memory require some sort of symbol like language? hehehe -

This was fun!
