Quote: This stems from the use of platoons of suicide penguins, protected by armed escorts of Polar Bears, during the onslaught against the Eskimo's in the 1700's.


Having studied the unexpurgated version of "Eskimo Nell" held in the British Museum I can find no mention of this alleged occurrence.

I think it's come from the same source as Suzie and her bearded penguins. Either that, or it's the Americans trying to rewrite history again. Smile

Several people have submerged a D200 without issue. I wish the same could be said for the lenses.

Righty ho, you can all get back to your bearded penguin discussion.

Is that a beard size or a type of penguin?

Suzi wears check a lot, does she? But why should Jas have to buy it for her? Sounds like there's more to this than meets the eye!

It's okay Jas, we understand. Brown envelopes, dead trees and all that. Wink

I don't use anything so common as a 'brown' envelope!
