Water based mammals are pretty similar to us (motorcycle based mammals) with a couple of really odd exceptions. I think the most amazing difference is that fact that our water based kin are voluntary breathers while all other mammals are reflex based mammals. That means that us land crawlers 'have' to breathe and simply cannot hold our breath indefinitely (try it- betcha' you can't do it either). Creatures like dolphins are voluntary breathers meaning they can hold their breath forever and only actually breathe when they consciously cause that to happen. It all makes sense because only a conscious dolphin would know when its blowhole (easy boys!) is above the surface of the water. But it also causes an interesting problem; if a dolphin falls asleep they will suffocate (unless supported by external means such as a mechanical respirator) and yet as mammals, they need regular, deep sleep. To overcome this they have developed an almost unbelievable ability- they sleep by shutting down one hemisphere of their brains at a time and never both at once.

This brings new meaning to the question 'who was in charge for this mess' as well as bringing new limits to the phrase "I thought YOU were going to stand the next watch."

That's not so different than the way some of our politicians work, except they've learned to shut down their entire brain while appearing to be awake.

It must be contagious. They've managed to pass it on to a great many of the electorate in this country.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

I'm about sick to DEATH of hearing about Lance Armstrong. Who cares?    :o

I guess it is a distraction from the 'real' news though.

True story, last summer my wife was teacing a class and a woman was complaining about all the hoopla over Armstrong. She went on to say she couldn't see what the big deal was, they gave him a medal in France after he landed on the moon, plus, he just died so why don't they leave him alone. True. My wife had nothing to say. This woman is upper management.

No, sad commentary on the knowledge of 50% of voters here in the U.S.

One thing about grilling in the winter is that the beer doesn't get warm...it stays nice and cold.

I evicted the rat from my grill. Had to clean it. The wife didn't believe that rat turds would add flavor....

I'm sure that the turds would impart a lil extra 'something' to any meat that you would like to grill. Perhaps not the flavors that you were looking for, though.  :o
