Ever knew penguins could fly?

This is supposedly a video from a BBC Documentary:

Isn’t this amazing?

The Wikipedia entry on penguins says that they are flightless birds, and so did I believe. There’s a UK Mirror article on the same, which says they were filmed at King George’s Island, 1200 kilometres south of the Falklands. And then there’s a Telegraph article on the same.

Amazed? Wondering why you never knew about flying penguins? Why they never told you about this on Planet Earth or National Geographic?

Probably has something to do with the date when this news was released…Click on the Telegraph article link and check it out!

Can you imagine an elephant painting?

One of my friends sent me this video:

This video is so amazing, when I saw it first, I was dumbstruck! First, I wondered whether the mahout (elephant rider) is controlling the elephant in some way or other. But even if it was, isnt the fact that “an elephant is able to draw” awesome by itself? Thats how my friend who sent me the video responded to my skepticism, and I agree fully.

We have these weird illusions that we are at the top of the evolutionary ladder, and we end up doing things like the picture shown below (of whale hunting)

These elephants have now become an endangered species. These intelligent creatures, whose full intellectual ability we may never know. And judging from what the elephant is doing in the above video, I think we better roll up our sleeves and get into the act of finding out…!
