i could tell someone something without trying to convince them. or put them on the defensive
but an audience is necessary. its hard to be heard over the din caused by disrespect
Well This Is Something You Don’t See Every Day of the Day: Helen Palmer Geisel would be proud: Angler Raphael Biagini bagged this massive 30lb goldfish — actually, an orange koi carp if you want to get all technical — while on a fishing trip in France.
From the Daily Mail:
It took Raphael Biagini ten minutes to reel the creature out of a lake in the south of France - moments after fellow anglers told him they had spent six years trying to snare the legendary ‘giant goldfish’.
Mr Biagini, pictured, said: ‘To begin with, we couldn’t tell what was at the end of the line, but we knew it was big.
‘The fish was a good fighter, but not enough to win.’
Following a quick prize shot, Biagini kindly returned the once-in-a-lifetime catch to the water.
