If you've ever been high up in the mountains and wondered how fish got in the lakes up there, remember it's because millions of years ago, places like the Rocky Mountains used to be sea floors—and also because sometimes people squirt fish out of planes. The latter's a technologically impressive and unintentionally hilarious process, executed by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.

Nature is amazing, in that it produced a weird creature like humans who deplete lakes and then create aircraft to burn fuel to fly the fish they farmed back up to the lakes, so they can deplete them again for fun. Also, if you're a weird human like the author of this article, you may find yourself unable to stop giggling at the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy-esque existential crisis these fish, that suddenly find themselves hundreds of feet in the air, must be having.

Here's the view from the ground (not as good):
