seeing as though the top 3 sites are indo/nz/jellystone park…it gives 2 in 3 chance ending up as pompei sauce

Supervolcano? I guess it could be sorta cool to end up preserved for ever a la Pompeii.

I wonder if house insurance offers coverage for super volcanoes?

I still think that a super volcano is the most likely thing to wipe us out…. but bird flu has been around since 1997 so it has to do something big soon or just fizzle out…. ebola could suprise us all and become airborn… but lava is so pretty so that is my fave option… apparently some people scientists) are saying that super volcano may hit in 2012.. which is very interesting

back on topic cool photo, swans are very pretty

H5N1 = Bird flu! Very trendy.

I thought it was some of that crazy 13375p34k gear.

I should have added that you should definitely not feed wallabies and roos bread. It gives them a condition called pulpy jaw which will ultimately kill them.

Thumper 8:49 am 11 Apr 06

Bread is not good for them simply because they begin to rely on it as a food source and it doesn’t contain all the necessary nutrients they need to survive.

It won’t kill them or make them sick as long as it’s only supplementing their diet.

Ducks are exactly the same. You’ll often find that a domestic duck fed on grains and greens wil not eat bread because they don’t like it.

Either way, it’s pretty harmless to feed them bread because the lake is big enough to provide the ducks and swans with the correct food they should eat.

After all, there’s a lot of them and they’ve been there for a long time, and during that time they’ve been happily munching away on bread and whatever they can scrounge of the public.

Great photo I must say.

Nice work.
And all that bread just gives you a pre-stuffed swan, ready for the oven. 🙂

terubo 8:05 am 11 Apr 06

That’s why they can’t take off – too full of bread. Like this one, apparently.

Ive heard that feeding them bread is really bad for them. At times Ive seen some old people getting huge amounts of left over bread from the bakeries. Which they then take to the lake to feed the poor starving birds. lol

ok guys for those who were born in the dim dark old days of proper grammar time for translation please.

H5N1!! I should say so! And to add to that Y7I9Y1. Oh, yeah and R6T3Y7!!

Geoffco 3:13 pm 10 Apr 06

I wouldn’t say I was really in direct contact with it so I reckon it should be safe… But the kids feeding them all the bread (which this particular bird was coming in for) might want to think about it 🙂

No need to panic, nothing to see here….

H5N1?
