This pensive dog upstaged his owner and wasn’t even aware of it.
Inventor Jerry Paros posed for a photograph for an article in the publication Natureabout his invention an ultra precise quartz sensor that could contribute to an early-warning system designed to detect shifts in the sea floor that cause tsunamis.
Tsunamis are caused primarily by earthquakes that occur in the seafloor, since rapid shifts in elevation can generate waves that cross oceans in a matter of several hours. In 2011, a massive tsunami hit northern Japan following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off the coast, resulting in the meltdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukashima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
The article and the photograph were shared on Nature’s Twitter page.
While many found the article interesting, most people were busy obsessing over Paros’ photobombing canine companion.
Yeah that’s interesting and all but can we talk about the DOG ON THE DESK!
