Goldfish Lives in Working Deep Fryer

In a giant step in both technology and sustainable cooking, a company called WaterFryer has invented a deep fryer with water on the bottom. Since the oil sits directly on the water, any crumbs that fall during the frying process will fall straight into the cool water, preserving the oil from getting dirty and scorched, and, in the case of foods that contain water, reducing the chance of an explosion and fire. And as a bonus, a restaurant in Japan even stuck a fish in the water, where he can supposedly live for years off the falling crumbs so long as he doesn't venture too close to the oil line (via BoingBoing). Or, if the fish prove too dumb, I suppose Long John Silver's could save on labor costs by having the fish fry themselves.
