Phew, I stay away from that, I have enough dog droppings to last me a life time. I clean the yard twice a day.

For those around back then, how did the penguin adoption(s) go?

Any science on penguin guano anyone?

Quote:
«Pressures Produced When Penguins Poo -- Calculations on Avian Defecation»
(V. Breno Meyer-Rochow and J. Gal; International University of Bremen and Lorand Eotvos University of Hungary; 2005)
"They get up, move to the edge of the nest, turn around, bend over... and shoot"

Ever wondered how far a penguin can fire waste from its anus? Wonder no more. Victor Breno Meyer-Rochow of International University, Bremen, and Jozsef Gal of Lorand Eotvos University, Hungary, used the basic principles of physics to calculate the pressure that builds up inside a penguin. Dr. Meyer-Rochow explained that the research began in 1993, when he led the first, and so far only, Jamaican expedition to the Antarctic. Later, while showing students pictures of faeces-lined penguin nests, he was asked how the elaborate displays were created. "They get up, move to the edge of the nest, turn around, bend over - and shoot," he said. That's when he got the idea to calculate the pressure produced by penguin poo.


and if anyone makes a referral to Sir_Fart I say no!
That is what the next (science) article is about:
Quote:
«Farting as a Defence Against Unspeakable Dread»
(Dr. M. Sidoli; Washington DC; 1998)
"When feeling endangered, Peter used his bodily smell and farts to envelop himself in a protective cloud"

According to it's author, "this paper describes some features of the behaviour of a severely disturbed adopted latency boy. Peter was born premature, suffered several early hospitalizations and surgical operations, and at 2 months of age was removed from his mother's care by Social Services for neglect and abandonment. When feeling endangered, Peter had developed a defensive olfactive container using his bodily smell and farts to envelop himself in a protective cloud of familiarity against the dread of falling apart, and to hold his personality together."

Is that where the Jamaican Bob-Sleigh team had it's first training sessions?

You forgot to add one. The penguin keeps



away, hence making the shrubber more productive :s Speaking of which; this must have been embarassing #ni-1

Ah the ol' BSoD... You probably have corruption on the hard drive,
or in the boot sector of the hard drive... Fix: Use Linux (Yeah, I know,
it wil not fix the hard drive, but at least no more BSoDs!!) Laughing
