Don't teach a man to fish, and feed yourself. He's a grown man. And fishing is not that hard.

A New Hampshire fisherman recently made an unusual catch when his trawler pulled up a bona fide mammoth tooth fossil

The trawlers have scoured everything else off the bottom of the ocean, but I'm not sure that mammoth teeth are sustainable.

Massive article failure without a picture.

If he's dragging the bottom hard enough to pick up mammoth teeth, god help the sea life.

I liked the part about the land bridge between Africa and North America.

Honestly, you people make it sound like the extermination of all sealife is a bad thing.

Yeah, it's not like they're growing on trees.

Deep water trawlers use 9000 pound weights to keep the net on the sea floor.

If you build a fire for a man you will keep him warm for a day.
If you set him on fire he will be warm for the rest of his life.

But mammoths DO grow on trees.

On Feb. 19, fishing boat captain Mike Anderson of the F/V Rimrack made a rare catch in Rye Harbor, New Hampshire.

Know who ELSE was a catcher in the Rye?

When your trawler is pulling up enough of the seabed that you're making archeological discoveries, it might be time to stop.

I thought it was, "Teach a man to fish and he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day."

Wonder who I could talk to about self-sustaining scallops?

Yeah, back them they had nice things.
It would cost a fortune to build one now.

Well, it's not so surprising that they lived in the ocean.  That would explain why they have those snorkel noses.

It would have been nice to see a picture of that 5000 year old tooth ;)

So, just based on the headline, someone found sea mammoths with wooly teeth?

HA!  Just when we thought people were done making 9/11 jokes.

Was this the ship that dredged up the giant thing?

Funny, we've all figured out that bottom trawling is evil, yet we still haven't managed to ban it...
