Sea monkeys love trance music! Dancing sea monkeys close-up. Sea monkeys doing flips. Sometimes they prefer more of a nightclub atmosphere.

I recently got some sea monkeys for my office. I noticed that the pace of their swimming seemed to go well with the bpm of my trance music (like they were swirling around to a little sea monkey rave) and was delighted to discover that someone else had apparently made the same observation and created some videos of it.

Sea monkeys and x-ray specs are sign posts on the road to lost innocence.

I always thought they were more into Alternative.

They are swimming happily;
Can't you see?
A life that's so sublime...

More likely, they're scared to death and trying to get the fuck out of there.

That first video needs to be mixed with the video for Underworld - Rez.

I always think of Harold von Braunhut when I hear Sea Monkeys.

Harold and his wife shopped at the Safeway that I worked at. He was basically the grandpa from Christmas vacation with KKK tattoos and a swastika tie tack.

Area Turtle Owner Enjoys Special Daily Turtle-Time
Feeding the tiny reptile a lovingly prepared slice of lettuce, Frye watched as Sheldon slowly chewed and swallowed each mouthful. "Look at him!" Frye whispered gleefully. "He's chewing it!"

"He loves it! Look at him smiling!" he added.

According to herpetologists, not only is the facial musculature of the box turtle incapable of forming a smile, but the chances of Sheldon actually experiencing feelings of joy are almost nil.

Those videos were far more entertaining than I imagined they would be. But as noted above: still no crowns, dammit.

They are tiny. The music is loud enough to shake the water. This is stupid and cruel.

@aeschenkarnos: I don't think they have ears. And their water is shook up a lot more through blowing bubbles in it to aerate it than it is from playing music.

As a child it really depressed me to find out that sea monkeys were, in fact, not actually of the primate phylogeny..

Just in case you didn't know department: regular aquarium fish (such as guppies and others) just flippin' LOVE to eat these so called sea monkeys.

True, most fish love brine shrimp, I mean Sea Monkeys.

Ah when there is a nice wind from the west, the smell of rotting sea monkeys makes a summer day in Salt Lake.
