Ahhh! Woooh! What's happening? Who am I? Why am I here? What's my purpose in life? What do I mean by who am I? Okay okay, calm down calm down get a grip now. Ooh, this is an interesting sensation. What is it? Its a sort of tingling in my... well I suppose I better start finding names for things. Lets call it a... tail! Yeah! Tail! And hey, what's this roaring sound, whooshing past what I'm suddenly gonna call my head? Wind! Is that a good name? It'll do. Yeah, this is really exciting. I'm dizzy with anticipation! Or is it the wind? There's an awful lot of that now isn't it? And what's this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like 'Ow', 'Ownge', 'Round', 'Ground'! That's it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it'll be friends with me? Hello, Ground!

I don't know.  I guess fresh trout is OK, but I'm more interested in experienced tuna.

If they over accelerate before they hit the water; then I would say their tails.

I like to think there are other fish in the lake, maybe the wild trout who were born outside The Matrix, who have learned that the vibrations caused by the planes means the buffet is open. They wait below like cats trying to catch falling snowflakes.

I was fishing an alpine hike-in fishing lake near Chetwynd a few years ago when a plane kept buzzing the lake. It didn't have floats, but figured maybe he wanted to do an emergency landing on the lake, so we moved to the shoreline. The plane came back overhead and dropped a load of rainbow trout into the lake. That was so cool to see.

In junior high school, we had an open campus when it came to lunch. Just about everybody went on a sprint as soon as the bell rang to get to whatever lunch spot they wanted. Many of them went just across the street to the convenience store called Quick Sac. This was in early 80's, so prime time for arcade video games. The games in this store were lined up in a peninsula of sorts; only one way in and out. We would walk into the area and let the gas fly and watch with big smiles as everyone suffered from the stench, but wouldn't leave the game they paid for. Good times.
