“It is popularly believed that goldfish have a memory span lasting only a few seconds.”

“However, recent research indicates that goldfish have no problem remembering significant events and faces for as long as three months.”

“Scientists have therefore concluded that goldfish are simply better at ignoring all the irrelevant bullshit that you find so utterly fascinating.”
