Whales have such a dense layer of subcutaneous fat to help insulate them against the extreme temperature drops they experience at great depths (300metres+) whilst diving.

Also bear in mind that water strips body heat 25times faster than in the open air.

Hope this has shed some light on your dilemma Tony. ;)

Now WHY do I seem to get drawn back to the 100M single mother pram push that someone suggested should be a sport for the 2012 games??

LMAO. No it is his farm but he is getting old now. I can remember when i was a nipper him putting a half hundred weight sack of feed on his shoulder and walking about 1&half miles and not breaking a sweat now he goes every where in a landrover. Even the damm dog is getting old and wont go any where except in the landrover:D

Went up to vist a few weeks ago. Found them driving around in the field with the dog hanging out of the window barking at the cows. Every so often he would stick his head back in as to say "LEFT YOU FECKING IDIOT" and then stick his head back out and carry on barking.

An 'act of god' is invariably something terrible such as a hurricane, tsunami, earthquake etc

'playing god' normally involves something good such as trying to find cures for diseases, and generally trying to save people

so why, whenever there is a discussion about genetic cloning etc, do 'they' always campaign against 'playing god', but when India gets flooded 'they' never say a ruddy word? :rolleyes:
