Fight Against Maturity

“It’s raining fish!” No word on whether it was a Friday.

Residents of a remote Australian desert town were shocked by a turn in the weather – when fish rained from the sky. Hundreds of small white fish, many still alive, fell over two days on Lajamanu in the Northern Territory, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Weather experts believe the fish, spangled perch, were sucked up in a thunderstorm before being dumped over the tiny town which is 326 miles from the nearest river…

It is the third time in less than 30 years that Lajamanu has been bombarded by falling fish, according to Northern Territory News, after reports of the phenomenon in 1974 and 2004.
