    PZ,

    Patricia, Nerd, and a few other folks like you and me are the only ones old enough to know who the Cisco Kid and Pancho were.

    Damn. I remember.

    But I am an historian, so ancient history is acceptable, right?

    Right?

    Impressive jowls on that vertebrate.

    Sigh. Me too. Reruns on late night TV – before the hours between midnight and 6am were gobbled up by infomercials.

    I have a vague recollection of this show, but remember the Lone Ranger and Rocky Jones Space Ranger from that period.

    Southwestern Michigan only had a couple of stations (CBS and NBC) in those days, and rabbit ears limited the distance (the Lansing stations were fuzzy for example, without a tall higher than the roof antenna).

    Having been born in 1942, I have memories of a day when the principle source of culture for the home was Radio. The Cisco Kid was a regular feature.

    These two guys have one of the coolest relationships you can see in an aquarium.

    The goby builds the nest, the shrimp protects them.

    Also, the pistol shrimp has the awesome ability of cavitating water to create a “gun”.

    And in a fish tank, these guys aren’t friends with anyone else in the tank – one can’t fit the other in its mouth and the other’s claws can’t fit around the other.

    Perfectly matched bullies can’t bully each other. So they work together instead.
