As of the moment I am sending this, a fish has reached a total height of 49719 meters. It is continuing to ascent at approximately 9.4 meters per second. Even the stars are gone. At this point I can only wonder whether it will finally reach some limit (perhaps at 99999m), or if it will continue to slip the surly bonds of earth until my iPhone's battery expires.
I have also established that an ordinary shotgun can indeed reach targets at this height. However, I cannot bring myself to end this unnatural phenomenon.
I am paralyzed and yet vaguely enthralled.
