A Bad Sign? Granddad the Australian Lungfish Dies

Granddad the Australian lungfish dies at Chicago Shedd Aquarium aged in its mid-90s
"An Australian lungfish believed to be the longest-living fish in captivity has died at a Chicago aquarium.
Granddad, as the 11-kilogram fish was known, was euthanased due to old age at the Chicago Shedd Aquarium after losing interest in food and showing signs of organ failure.
The fish had been acquired from a Sydney aquarium in 1933, and was taken to Chicago in anticipation of the 1933–34
World's Fair."
"Lungfish can survive in both water surface and in the land. 
They have two lungs and can breathe air. 
This teaches us that we should be able to survive everywhere whether the place is good or bad. 
We should get adapted to different situations in life. 
Sometimes life can be good but at times it can become unbearable. 
In all these situations we should be ready to survive just as lungfish survives on land when there is no water.
They harden their skin to bad weather. 
We learn that we should adjust to the condition that befalls us. 
Some situations cannot be changed by ourselves but we are able to change ourselves to fit in the situation. 
When challenges come, we should device ways of changing ourselves so that we are able to overcome the challenges.
Lungfish is able to
connect to amphibians.
Lungfish is able to connect to amphibians?-)
We should be able to socialise with those around us and learn from them just as the lungfish. 
When [sic] should always work together with others to make the world a better place to live in.
They also symbolise connections to ones dreams. 
When we have the power of lungfish, we should have a dream we want to achieve and work hard towards achieving it. 
Your dream should influence your actions because you need to put more effort to achieve your dreams.
They also have ancestral relations to other animals which show where they originated from. History has it that human beings also evolved from other animals before they became full beings. We should know our background and where we truly originated from. 
Our origin can be used to speculate our future. 
For instance, if we believe in evolution, we therefore learn how we used to be and how we will be in future."
SNL recreates Turnbull-Trump call
"The now-famous phone call between Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and US President Donald Trump has been recreated in a Saturday Night Live skit."
Turnbull must have felt like a fish out of water when on the phone to Trump. ;-)
