Today, I won a goldfish at the amusement park. My little brother took him out of the bowl because he thought he was drowning. FML

Maybe he thought the fish needed air.

Well yes, lack of air is a factor, bit also the lungs filling with water

On the bright side at least he was trying to be a hero. R.I.P fishy.

If your brother isn't very, very young, I'm quite concerned he doesn't know fish live in water!

Fish don't live in water, obviously. What the hell are you talking about?

Or, OR he/she is just being sarcastic.

Um. I read an FML that had the EXACT same story a few days ago. Way to copy the other FML, change a few words, and submit it as your own.

It's quite possible it was his/her story and they resubmitted it with slightly different wording.

I think your brothers age is the difference between young and stupid.

I'm not actually sure it is. What age can a child be young enough to not understand that but old enough to get the fish out of the bowl without anyone watching? Even two years olds I work with know that fish live in water. They see it in books, tv, ponds, everywhere. It's the one thing they DO know about fish. (they might still try and pick it up out of curiosity but they probably wouldn't give the excuse of it needing air) And as two year olds shouldn't really be left alone with open fish bowls...I can't see an age where this isn't someone's fault.

It depends on how old your little brother is. If he is a small kid (5 and under) it is your fault for not stopping him/ watching him more closely. If he is older, I am sorry your brother is a moron.

I think a 5-year-old should know that fish live underwater.

This really depends on his age, if he's young than its cute, but if he is let's say 6+ than your brother is an idiot.

6+? 5 year olds should definitely know that fish live in water. And younger for that matter.

one day his Brain will be on display of amusement park...for your brother's amusing brain...
