WE’VE SEEN ALL kinds of corrections and clarifications, but this one really takes the biscuit.

It’s the Holy Grail of clearing things up; a correction – correction – clarification on an article about a warmblooded fish.

correction Source:

Now, to our unscientific eyes, the Celsius temperature reference in the article still appears to be wrong.

It reads:

The fish had an average muscle temperature about 5 degrees C [roughly 9 degrees Fahrenheit] above the surrounding water while swimming about 150 to 1,000 feet below the surface.

However, it almost certainly has something to do with the temperature of the fish relative to the surrounding water, rather than a direct correlation between the ’5′ and ’9′ numbers given.

Or something.
