(Haaretz)   Think Penguins are small, cute, cuddly creatures? Well thousands of years ago, 7-foot tall 250 pounders roamed the Antarctic. Try Happy Feet on THAT one   (haaretz.com) divider line 24

Were they albino and developed as a food source for the shoggoths?

Destructor: dittybopper: We're just that good at what we do.

Not really. Killing awesome, big lumbering beasts to the point of extinction seems way too easy.

If we were really good at killing, there wouldn't be a single mosquito, tick, or malignant parasite left on the planet that everyone (well, most things with a spine) hate. Our killing would be noble; even heroic. (And as soon as we got a grip on microbes, we start gunning for them.)

But instead of focusing on really important stuff worthy of death... We kill the 7' tall penguins, mammoths, and other really cool stuff that unfortunately, is ill equipped to deal with our (lazy) killing might.

As the top rated species for killing other life forms on Earth, we really need to buckle down and focus... We owe it to the survivors. :-)

/Also, I really hate parasitic insects.


I was talking about hunting, not killing for killing's sake, but we *ARE* good at that too.  And we *ARE* good at killing mosquitoes.  There are just a couple of minor side effects.

More to the point though, from an efficiency standpoint, you want to kill the largest animal you can.  Do you realize how many mosquito wings it takes to make a shelter covering?

Slaxl: Damn, I hate that we live in an age where all the giant things are gone. All we have are elephants and bigfoot. Whales are shiat, hiding underwater like chumps all day. Also they don't have legs, so aren't scarey. Bring back megafauna!!

More formally known as Palaeeudyptes klekowskii, it is the largest-known penguin ever to have walked waddled the earth.

FIFM.

Yeah, these days Penguins have become so small they can barely stand up to a little shove:

AMonkey'sUncle: CSB: In Antarctica our breaker was "moored" to the ice, and a bunch of us went onto the ice to kick around a soccer ball.

Next thing we knew a bunch of Adelie penguins had showed up, curious as to what the strange creatures were doing. I don't know about now, but then they still had no fear of humans.

They were cute.


No, but seriously, how did they taste?
