(Some Guy)   Ornithologists conclude birds that fly in packs, or "cluster flocking", are not more aerodynamic or efficient. Basically, it's a bunch of cluster flocking B.S.   (news.sciencemag.org) divider line 20

So, it's like the Politics Tab?

But do they have gang signs?

Only three comments? That's odd, I thought that would be big news. A headline regarding mass awareness of a certain avian variety.

Oh! Have you not heard? It was to understanding that everyone had heard.

wait, was there anyone that actually thought it was?

this falls into the 'water is wet' category methinks

Gang bang.

This sounds like an ornithological piece.

It's a predator thing. The larger the group, the less chance you have, individually, of being eaten by predators.

But I thought boobies came in pairs.

And I'm sure the American people will swallow this information whole.

What kind of flocking bustards put together this crap anyways?

I always imagined it was a survival tactic. Like wildebeests and mackerel.

They may fly in big groups, but there are always one or two being left out due to race hate:

Apropos of science, capsaicin cream is very good for alleviating horrible itching from mosquito bites. Don't try this at home, kids.
And if you do, wash your hands very well with lots of soap before you aim your wee-wee.

My old man's favorite joke was to point out flying geese to someone, then say, "You ever notice that, in every V of geese, one side of the V is always longer than the other? You know why that is?"

The person would invariably guess that the mismatched lines of geese had something to do with aerodynamics, only to be deflated when he told them, "'Cause there's more geese on that side!"

good times.

They're moving in herds... they do move in herds...

They're uh... they're flocking this way...

Yeah there's more, but i'm late to this thread and no one will ever read this.
