    Ohh man. Wait until April first.

    You think lasers are an eye hazard... MUHAHAHAHAHAaa1!1!!1!eleven.

    All crap aside: I was trying to work on this place and I saw a theme that didn't look retarded so I picked it up. I was wrong.

    Many of the mantis shrimp have 12 cones for hyperspectral vision.

    They are certainly very cool.

    I first heard about them when someone told me about their "strike" which carries an insane amount of force with it.

    Theres another type of these in the same family that don't have the "hammer" thing... They have spears. If I remember correctly they are not nearly as pretty as the peacock variety.

    But yea, their eyes are absolutely amazing.

    And as wild as the colors can get... Nothing comes close to a green mandarin.

    Was at a fish store that had one under a very uv heavy actinic light... It was surreal.

    Wow, what a great mascot for PL!
    Thanks for sharing.

    hyperspectral and polarization state, wow.

    Too bad they don't talk, I could use a hyperspectral ellipsometer.
