The large, round fish—about the size of a manhole cover—uses its warm blood as an advantage in the ocean's freezing depths.

Deep-water fish called opah appear to be the first fully warm-blooded fish species ever discovered, according to a new paper published in Science. Researchers say the unique biology behind opah, also known as moonfish, allow the species to operate at peak performance even within frigid ocean depths.
Being warm-blooded has its perks. Birds and mammals (or endotherms) conserve their internal heat to maintain high body temperatures, which helps them flee predators, chase prey and thrive in sub-zero climates. But fish—and other cold-blooded animals, like reptiles and amphibians—aren't so lucky. Most deep-sea fish move slowly, preferring to ambush prey rather than give chase, as their low body temperatures (and reaction speeds) mirror the cool ocean water. But now, scientists say they have discovered one exception to this rule: opah.
Girl :- Lets go for a dinner tonight.
Boy (an engineer) :- Ok.
Girl :- But where will you take me?
Boy :- Should we go to Mint Food (an economic restaurant) ?
Girl :- No. That's a very cheap place. Let's go to Tomato's (A brutally costly place).
Boy :- *silence for a minute* Ok, See you at 7. I will pick you up from your place.
Boy picks up girl at 7.
On the way...
Boy :- Once I had pani puri competition with my sister and she ate 30 pani-puris and defeated me.
Girl :- What's so difficult in it?
Boy :- Defeating me in Pani-puri eating competition is difficult.
Girl :- I can easily beat you.
Boy :- Please leave it. It's not your cup of tea.
Girl :- Let us have that competition right now.
Boy :- So you want to see yourself defeated?
Girl :- Let's see.
They both stop at a Pani-puri stall.
They start eating.
After about 30 Pani-puri the boy gave up.
The girl was also full, but to defeat her boyfriend, she ate one more and shouted, "You lose."
The bill was 120rs.

A successful man, working in a large company,
tells his boss one day,
"If you want me to continue working for you, I need a 20% raise.
You have 24 hours to give me an answer.
I have four companies chasing me, so let me know your decision".
The boss is alarmed. "In this recession, a 20 percent raise?
So many employees are being laid off, and so many others have
seen a major cut in their salaries, yet you want a 20% raise?"
"I will not argue with you," says the employee.
"As I said, there are four companies chasing me,
so just let me know your decision."
Next day, the boss calls him in, and says,
that due to his great performance he decided
to comply and will give him the requested raise.
"Great," the man says, " I will continue gladly with you."
As he is leaving, his boss asked,
"Out of curiosity, who are the four companies chasing you?"
"Oh" he responded,
"Kotak Personal loan , Citi credit card, SBI Vehicle Loan, and HDFC Home loans."
I have to repay them all😂😂😝😝
"Mom, I am a genetic scientist. I am working in the US on the evolution of man. Theory of evolution, Charles Darwin, have you heard of him? " Vasu asked.
His Mother sat down next to him and smiled, "I know Darwin, Vasu. I also know that what you think he discovered is old news in India."
" Yeah sure Mom!" Vasu said with sarcasm.
"Well if you are too smart then listen to this, " his Mother countered." Have you heard of Dashavatar? The ten avatars of Vishnu?" Vasu nodded.
"Then let me tell you what you and Mr. Darwin don't know. The first avatar was the Matsya avatar, it means the fish. That is because life began in the water. Is that not right?" Vasu began to listen with a little more attention.
"Then came the Kurma Avatar, which means the tortoise, because life moved from the water to the land. The amphibian. So the Tortoise denoted the evolution from sea to land.
Third was the Varaha, the wild boar, which meant the wild animals with not much intellect, you call them the Dinosaurs, correct? " Vasu nodded wide eyed.
"The fourth avatar was the Narasimha avatar, half man and half animal, the evolution from wild animals to intelligent beings.
Fifth the Waman avatar, the midget or dwarf, who could grow really tall. Do you know why that is? Cause there were two kinds of humans, Homo Erectus and the Homo Sapiens and Homo Sapiens won that battle." Vasu could see that his Mother was in full flow and he was stupefied.
"The Sixth avatar was Parshuram, the man who wielded the axe, the man who was a cave and forest dweller. Angry, and not social.
The seventh avatar was Ram, the first thinking social being, who laid out the laws of society and the basis of all relationships.
The eight avatar was Krishna, the statesman, the politician, the lover who played the game of society and taught how to live and thrive in the social structure.
The Ninth avatar, the Buddha, the man who rose from Narasimha and found man's true nature. The nature of Buddha, he identified man's final quest of enlightenment.
And finally, my boy, will come Kalki, the man you are working on. The man who will be genetically supreme."
Vasu looked at his Mother speechless. "This is amazing Mom, how did you.. This makes sense!"
"Yes it does Vasu!
Mythology makes sense. Its just the way you look at it - Religious or Scientific.
