    They look like long slimy bits of slime to me...

    According to dictionary.com however they are
    1. Any of various long, snakelike, scaleless marine or freshwater fishes of the order Anguilliformes or Apodes that lack pelvic fins and characteristically migrate from fresh water to salt water to spawn.

    ewww, they're ugly. and they don't make eel skin wallets out of eels, they make it out of something that's softer and more hideous and dumb looking than eels. Otherwise I'd say that that was their purpose

    Everything has a purpose. An eels purpose is to eat stuff and shock things that try to eat them. Keeping the aquatic habititat in balance by fullfilling its niche.

    This post reminded me of one of my roommates comments:"I used to like pandas until I found out that all they do is eat and poop at the same time. They don't do anything." Being the nice person that I am I didn't argue with her even though she said that after I stated that pandas are my favorite animal.
    It made me wonder what she would expect from a panda, or any animal for that matter. Do they have to serve a specific purpose in her life for her to find them useful or even like them?
    Animals are there just to be animals and balance the ecosystem. Each animal serves a purpose to the environment; just because they don't serve people doesn't make them inadequate.

    For exmaple: If one canot like an animal whose puurpose is to shit and eat simultaneosuly, how could they like themself? A human, who has no purpose in most case it can identitfy, which goes about obliviously raping it's mother planet and wiping out all the other species whilst abusing our remaining resources and giggling and jerking on our weiners as children are murdered out of purposeles hatred and millions of people needlessly starve?
    Yea it confusing the hell out of me which I guess is why eels are for real. hehehehehe

    I searched online but gave up after finding this. I'd call them water snakes and I bet fish and turtles eat them.


    While BTO and Grand Funk ruled the airwaves, the Electric Eels confronted the cities of Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio with clothing held together with rat traps and safety pins, Marshalls covered in fiberglas, a lawnmower, and songs like "You're Full of Shit." The Eels' music was unabashedly confrontational, angry, absurd, desperate, self-destructive and very ahead of its time. They played abrasive three chord rock songs, songs of utter despair as well as free improvisations. They were beaten by police, each other and themselves.
