Poor little Einstein the Fantail Goldfish got a terrible swim bladder infection and lost his ability to swim correctly. He ended up with air pockets that forced him to swim upside down in his tank. And needless to say, that’s a bad thing that eventually would mean death for the little guy.
But my new hero…Einstein’s owner Leighton Naylor…wasn’t ready to give up on him so he made him a teeny tiny little lifejacket made of tubing.
And it worked! Now, with the help if his special jacket Einstein can once again swim around his tank like a boss.

For most of us the name Ray Harryhausen probably wouldn’t ring a bell.
But I’m QUITE sure you’re familiar with some of his work, even if you’re not aware of it.
You see, Ray Harryhausen was a groundbreaking visual effects designer, writer, and producer.
He created a brand new type of stop-motion animation called Dynamation that allowed you to seamlessly introduce animated creatures into live-action scenes. And Ray was responsible for a heck of a lot of the movie monsters and incredible creatures that you’ve known and loved over the years.
Ray died yesterday at the age of 92; And when he shuffled off this mortal coil we lost an incredibly talented…albeit somewhat unknown by the common man…guy.
Someone was kind enough to put together a clip of ALL of Ray’s wonderful creatures in chronological order for us.
