    Some things need to be kept private, audept!
    Penguins can be rather shy at times...

    Funny ****!

    The liner notes of the pic read: Scientists studying king penguins in Antarctica were sent ‘cuckoo’ by the nitrous oxide in their faeces.
    I read that as “in their faces” invoking a whole different imagery. :confused:

    There’s a comic strip that paints a different view of penguins though.

    Nitrous oxide for engines ... not a fan of it. Works like a non-machine-supercharging process (increases amount of oxygen in a given volume like a combustion chamber), but if a severe step up in power is required only for short periods, it's what one's after...

    I'd love to try it. My former doctor (got retired by the end of last year) told me stories that made me more curious than he intended to have me being, huh huh huh ...

    Anyway, penguins are cool, and not only for where they live, but also for flying under water, for looking overdressed, for collecting rocks, for stealing other penguin's rocks, ... I like them.

    Legalize Penguin Poop! Nothing quite like a snootful of penguin poop.
    Those of us that survived Catholic school understand.
    Mike Rowe did a bit on "Dirty Jobs" about cleaning a penguin habitat at a zoo. Nasty, foul little buggers.

    I never realized, until I saw a penguin skeleton., that they had such long necks.

    Penguins are so nasty one person who studied them wrote down in code what he saw as not to offend the public.
