    Well now you know. That is all.

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which usually deals with environmental matters like tsunamis and hurricanes, recently took the strange step of posting a statement on their website denying that mermaids exist.

    In a post titled, “No Evidence of Aquatic Humanoids Has Ever Been Found,” NOAA notes that:

    "The belief in mermaids may have arisen at the very dawn of our species. Magical female figures first appear in cave paintings in the late Paleolithic (Stone Age) period some 30,000 years ago, when modern humans gained dominion over the land and, presumably, began to sail the seas. Half-human creatures, called chimeras, also abound in mythology — in addition to mermaids, there were wise centaurs, wild satyrs, and frightful minotaurs, to name but a few. But are mermaids real? No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found."

    Funny they didn't mention mermen. Those really are real. I found one while I was on a yacht buzzing around through Tampa Bay a few years ago. He was fucking hot! icon_biggrin.gif
