Til Tomorrow!


Speaking of killer whales ( ie Free Willy)

Have you seen the killer whale on You Tube munching on the Great white Shark?


The shark didn't even put up a fight.

literally just rolled over.




ORCA (Free Willey) vs. Great White ?





No John but I have seen killer whales on Blue Planet, the BBC documentary. People see whales and don't realise their status in the food chain, if there is a king of the ocean then it's probablty a killer whale




I apologise that my ocean knowledge extends only as far as things that have been on Attenborough documentaries Smiley Tongue

yey awsome!

I actually like the 5 a day!


so youre telling me we are blind 40 minutes a day?

Why do we call sleeping, having 40 winks?

former giff-staffer

@Pete - I feel this maybe a trap but:


The expression derives from the closed-eye position, or extended wink assumed during sleep (‘wink’ has been associated with sleep since the 14th century), but implies that the resting person does not fall into a deep sleep. <“There’s just time for forty winks before we have to leave”>.
