Just saw this headline on CNN website. Thought it peculiar, since penguins can't even fly and have no technical know-how: How do they get into space?

Finally. I was wondering when they were going to get around to doing this.

Come to think of it, the poop's the thing from space. Doesn't really say anything about penguins getting up there. Stranger and stranger.

Awesome - wonder why they are tracking poop? I hope they aren't tracking mine.

They don't fly but their aerodynamics are GREAT. They're way easy to launch.

Yeah, but were they able to tell what their last meals were? Huh? Huh?

Those scientists aren't so smart! Wink Laughing

Bizzarre-er and Bizzare-er. Now there is a headline suggesting Denise Richards has three breasts:

@Eva,
I only do headlines. Stories somehow kill the mood.

@dlowan,
We've got pig launchers all over the place around here, but nothing for penguins. I kind of visualize an inner tube, a forked tree, and a happy looking pig. Sadly. . . .

Yeah, but what kind of fish is it? Enquiring minds need to know these kind of details for research. Razz

penguin poop is great for country gentleman corn and ever-bearing strawberries. I collect it in 1 cubic ft bags that I spread on top on the garden in early december but be sure to water it in well. works pretty well for zucchini as well.

Well, it's so obvious. There are penguins on Mars on the ice cap and their poop is lighter than the Martian air and there's not enough gravity to hold the excretion from racing into space. Don't go outside tonight.

My beloved is from Mars although I confess show does not look like a penguin she was taught by them in Catholic school after which I had the distinct pleasure of undoing.
