Penguins & Zen
    #4591743 - 08/28/05 07:23 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Saw the movie "March of the Penguins" last night. My lady only said the word "cute" about 300 times. :puke:

Pure National Geographic world-class photography with a great narrative by Morgan Freeman.

The story centers around the breeding, egg-warming and chick-hatching ritual of the Emperor penguin.

In one part, the males must keep the egg warm in temps below -60 degrees F without food or shelter (except for the group) or DVDs for over two months - and with minimal bitching.

I nominate these fine creatures as Zen Masters extraordinaire. :thumbup: I doubt any human (even compensating for biological differences) could perform a similar feat

The proof is in the pudding.

if you compensated for the biological differences, he would be a penguin and therefore be able to do exactly what you described..

now would a human care enough to keep the population going... hell no, at least i wouldn't

Penguins have even invented their own operating system.

That picture looks a little fluffy. Are you... feeling funny?

Linux is altogether non-fluffy.
