Scientists just announced the discovery of this strange new crustacean 900 miles south of Easter Island. According to a report in the journal of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, divers first found the creature last year at a depth of 7,540 feet. From the Associated Press:[blockquote]Scientists said the animal, which they named Kiwa hirsuta, was so distinct from other species that they created a new family and genus for it. The animal is white and just shy of 6 inches long about the size of a salad plate.

In what (the French Institute for Sea Exploration's Michel) Segonzac described as a "surprising characteristic," the animal's pincers are covered with sinuous, hair-like strands.

It is also blind. The researchers found it had only "the vestige of a membrane" in place of eyes, Segonzac said.[hr style="width: 100%; height: 2px;"][/blockquote][/div]White, blind, and hairy...I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere that has to do with the kids at Mercer Island High School.

(For out-of-towners, Mercer Island is where all of the rich, beautiful people in Seattle live.)
The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.
