my heart, like an escaped balloon, ascends thousands of feet only to burst from the altitude
my heart, like a bullet train, derails at high speed and kills everyone on board
my heart, like an exploded septic tank, shits on everything.
my heart is a grand piano, pushed off the ledge of your 6th floor apartment
my heart is a wet paper bag.
In the heterotopic procedure, the patient’s own heart is not removed. The new heart is positioned so that the chambers and blood vessels of both hearts can be connected to form what is effectively a ‘double heart’. The procedure can give the patient’s original heart a chance to recover, and if the donor’s heart fails (e.g., through rejection), it can later be removed, leaving the patient’s original heart. Heterotopic procedures are used only in cases where the donor heart is not strong enough to function by itself (because either the patient’s body is considerably larger than the donor’s, the donor’s heart is itself weak, or the patient suffers from pulmonary hypertension).
A number of parrotfish species secrete a mucus cocoon, particularly at night. Prior to going to sleep, some species extrude mucus from their mouths, forming a protective cocoon that envelops the fish, presumably hiding its scent from potential predators. This mucus envelope may also act as an early warning system, allowing the parrotfish to flee when it detects predators such as moray eels disturbing the membrane. The skin itself is covered in another mucous substance which may have antioxidant properties helpful in repairing bodily damage, or repelling parasites, in addition to providing protection from UV light.
The fish can recoup part of their investment by eating the cocoons.
