This is a new aquarium in the “Business Shark” bar in the departures area of the new terminal at Warsaw airport.
They have a snail problem – nothing a few clown loaches couldn’t solve, but then they might have to kiss their shrimps goodbye too…

On my article “On the Origin of Speeches” defending a literal Biblical understanding of the origins of languages, one reader, Everett, wrote a Comment:
This judgmental event of the confusion of tongues makes me wonder how individual persons could maintain pair bonds and keep their families together. If so that right after forgetting the adamic language and gaining unique replacements for every single person, i don’t see how a family could understand one another and stay whole unless the respective languages they spoke were similar enough to permit comprehension. Or else, if the languages/dialects were provided at random, how could a husband speaking Turkish, for example, attempt to communicate with his Welsh-speaking wife? Also a man in love with a girlfriend speaking gibberish may be forced to find a different woman to marry who speaks a language within his language family.
I think that this theory of every person receiving his/her own language apart from an ordered dispensation to unite families seems a little implausible, and perhaps detrimental to society ever reforming after Babel.
I for some reason found this in my feed again and wrote a new answer, and then saw that I had made an earlier answer back in 2016. I would now therefore like to make a new article combining the best of the old and new answers, which essentially say the same hing but focus on different aspects of the question.
It’s an excellent question.
First it is fair to point out that there were not any language families then. This came about only much later. Hundreds and hundreds of years later. Hence finding a new partner with one’s own language family just wasn’t an option.
