During the 1920s a class president candidate at Harvard swallowed a live goldfish in a bid to win more votes. The stunt created a trend of ‘goldfish swallowing’ which became so popular that eventually Massachusetts state legislature had to create a bill banning it.

Goldfish not only listen to music, but they also can distinguish one composer from another, a new study finds.
