First order of business today was Marine Biology. I learned about vertical distribution in the pelagic zone. Fun fact, although the epipelagic zone accounts for less than 10% of the ocean’s volume, most pelagic animals are found there. Much deeper down, animals have to depend on random sinking food particles, and feeding on each other.

 

Next up, and lastly, English! I started doing some research into the special effects used in movies. For example, the first special effects in a film came from an 1895 Edison film. They recreated the execution of Mary, queen of the Scots, by having everyone stand perfectly still, and then replacing the actress with a dummy. I find it pretty cool, and apparently it was advanced enough at the time that some people thought a woman had died for the film.
