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 :P
Thanks I was just looking for that
Today's 5 a day is up :)
More excellent stuff , Thank you .. :smileyhappy:
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?
@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”>.
