Sturgeons clearly hate jet skis
Aug 9, 2006 - 10:20 AMI'm not sure if it's related to the Sturgeon Moon, but AP just posted this story from the Suwannee River in Florida:
"A man riding a personal watercraft was injured after a 4-foot-long sturgeon jumped out of the water and hit him [...] Officials at the time said similar accidents occur once or twice a year on the river and that the fish can jump as high as 8 feet in the air and can weigh up to 200 pounds."
Way down upon de Swanee Ribber,
Far, far away,
Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
Dere's wha de old folks stay.
All up and down de whole creation
Sadly I roam,
Still longing for de old plantation,
And for de old folks at home.
All de world am sad and dreary,
Eb-rywhere I roam;
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home!
