Haha, that's pretty crazy!

I didn't look at the forum and thought this was an above photograph of an oil spill at first!

The only predator they fear is known as the "international corporation", because this predator kills for money, not food.
The poor penguin does not understand this concept, and it probably makes the water just a bit "colder".

That reminds me of an IMAX movie I saw once, where they start with a close-up on the face of one Wildebeest, then they pan out for a looong time until finally you see the whole herd, which is about 2,000,000 of them.

G'day All,


That got me off guard, with all the doom and gloom I thought it was the horror oil spill.

So up lifting to see that other sea creatures living in harmony, how long before they get affected by a big companys stuff up.

now i understand the theory that one day penguins will rule the world.

Good post! That's a lot of penguins! I've always thought penguins were cool.
I'm reminded of the "Crazy Penguin" video. It's great.
(I'm not trying to hijack the thread...just wanted to share this hilarious vid.)

I have been to Antarctica and walked on a beach with half a million penguins (both parents and chicks). It is incredibly noisy and incredibly smelly (all that guano). It is also incredibly uplifting. You are not allowed to get closer to an individual penguin than 5 metres in case you frighten them but often a penguin will walk up to you, take a look, maybe a quick peck at your boot, and then wander off again. It's simply wonderful.
Thank you for a really wonderful post.

When I looked at the first pic, I thought maybe the Gulf oil spill from space, but was clearly mistaken. Thats a lot of penquins. Where were they?

The first picture looks like a giant turtle.

That's incredible!

I got the hint that maybe the OP was making an analogy to photos of Mars' surface or other planets/moons. If we fail to recognize a vast multitude of living creatures from our own planet at that altitude, how would we recognize exotic alien life from said altitude or even higher?

Just a thought.

Look at the top left for the head and eye.

Have you ever seen the movie 'Happy Feet'? They depicted some very real penguin behaviours, I am not sure if they did it to learn to swim or what, but all the kid penguins go off together and end their journey learning to swim, then they later meet back up with all the parents.

Yes? you called me?

What's truly amazing (now that I have an idea of the complexity) is, Papa penguins are able to come back after months at sea, and instantly locate their families to feed them.

Being human and realizing the amazing feats animals perform is very humbling and makes me question the REAL food-chain theory (I think we're on the bottom)

Thank you for this post. I love penguins and it would be awesome to have millions of penguins as pets.

Well just from looking at the first picture I'd have to say it's a bunch of penguins. It's hard to tell from that vantage point though.

this post has nothing to do with climate change, pollution, or environment issues. that is the section its in.

a bunch of retarded penguins. this post sure was enlightening. it really gets to the bottom of major issues. wait no it doesnt. at all. i was under the impression ats is for deep thinkers to mentally expand among lke-minded ppl. i'm sure peta has a website and they would love this. or the retarded penguins brigade. just so you know i dont have a problem with penguins, i do however have a problem with false flags and sleight of hand. youre probably intelligent as heck and have other posts that arent useless, and i apologize for seeming d**kish. but i just spent two mins of my life looking at penguins thinking it was something crazy. just say what it is in the headline. otherwise youre just using mystery to gain views. almost none of the replies were more than a sentence or two. a waste of time for everyone who looked apparently.

now if someone was clubbing them, then you'd have something that would be at home here. but i'm just a rookie so what do i know? and youre about to tell me all about myself i'm sure. but i kinda thought ats was like a forum version of wikileaks. especially since everything on this site deals with something deep. everything except this.

thank you so much for showing me these penguins standing around. i have a new insight into the mysteries of the universe now

Hello relatively new member.

Every now and then, its nice to have a thread thats not about doom and gloom.

I'm sorry i cant return your 2mins of valuable time, you can curse me on your death bed, say something along the lines of "If Alaskan Man hadn't made that thread, i could have spent two extra minutes of my life reading something about bp's oil spill". I'll consider the recognition an honor.

Somewhat ironic that the thread was such a waste of your time, that you decided to spend 2-3 times as much time making a lengthy reply. Think of all you could have learned in the time you spent composing the longest reply of the thread.
