Two deaths

4 stars

Bob and Mary were found dead. The Inspector went to the house an wrote this in his journal:

-There was glass all around the bodies
-There were water stains in the carpet around them
-There was a table next to them
-The Family cat was looking at the bodies upon The Inspectors entry

The autopsy report showed this:
-Bob and Mary died from 2 things
1. from shock
2. from loss of oxygen

Fish don't need oxygen? What do their cells use for cellular respiration?

WOW! That's an amazing answer, Faith. Or rather, amazingly stupid! Thanks though, you gave me my laugh for the day.

What is it you think the "O" in H2O stands for? If you still haven't figured this out, I'll explain further:

The water that surrounds a fish contains dissolved oxygen in a ratio of about 5 ml per liter. Therefore they have a system that can extract that small amount of oxygen out of the water and into their bloodstream. They use their gills for this. The process starts with the fish's mouth where he takes in water. When a fish opens and closes his mouth, he is pumping water back through the gills – his own way of breathing oxygen.

Please don't have kids, Faith. Our population can't take any more stupidity.
