I'm now getting worried that I lose 40 minutes a day... :-P

i nearly forgot that ebaums world existed

giffgaff; ergo sum

I've noticed the stopped clock before but never stopped to wonder what the explanation was, but where we lose 40 minutes a day lost, my wife swears that I lose more like140 minutes a day and it's nothing to do with any clock!

 

The Whale video was a real shocker, didn't expect that.  I think the clock theory came into play when the girl was in the water one second, and next time we saw her she was tucked up in the boat.  I wouldn't have wasted any time either.

 

Nice selection again, look forward to the next ones!  Well done Hazel!

It just goes to show that you shouldn't kick the world too hard, or it may fight back!

 

Be careful out there kids... :smileyvery-happy:

 

And thanks again Hazel another great '5 a day', I found easy to swallow. :smileywink:

Thanks guys, you all rock. Love the comments. We're really glad you liked yesterday's edition. ^_^

There is another superb whale clip at this address describing how the whales blow bubbles to trap the fish.

Awesome.

Here is a question.

Were there actually 2 hump back whales surfacing together in the clip?

Speaking of whales Free Willy is on ITV right now, I guess the schedulers there keep an eye on the 5 a day to see what's trending
