This is four-and-a-half minutes of silver carp leaping, unprovoked, into a boat. It serves as a fascinating video treatise on natural selection, and possible sport fishing.

If it makes you feel any better watching the assisted suicide of fish after fish, know that the silver carp is a highly invasive Asian import, and are forcing out local species. They're easily startled, leaping out of the water at the sound of a motor, and this quirk has led to them being favorites for bowfishing, and for slapping bow-wielding women.
