noahs ark
One of my favorite stories is the great flood.you cant go 5 seconds without running into another problem with it but its a fun story nevertheless. my question is let say you really wanted to build an ark for all the millions of species of plants and animals (we can exclude fish for the obvious reason) how long would it take to build,and how big would it have to be, and how large of a staff would you need?image the area you would need just for the food!!I doubt if a structure like could be built with just wood.

With test-tube gene samples and one of those nifty gadgets from Fifth Element, you could store 100 million samples in something the size of a cruise ship.

Or a space station. Or an Automated Reconstruction Chamber in an interstellar craft. :-)

That's basically the Titan project and spacecraft from the movie Titan A.E.

Oh man. I LOVE going over the the Wild Animal Park.
We gots baby pandas, (at the Zoo), and giraffes, and all kinds of weird fruit bats, hanging upside down. My little brother has a "thing" going with two of the zebra babies. I think they remember him, (smell ?) You're not supposed to feed them, but he sneaks them a treat.

I wonder about the microbes. Don't forget the microbes.
Mrs. Moses sat there and counted out the lice, and the bacteria with their mail-order microscope .... OK.

Exhibit A: stand-up comedian Mike Birbiglia.

This is good guy Mike Birbiglia. Once upon a time he made fun of my local zoo on a Comedy Central special. Unfortunately this caused him to get some unwarranted hate mail. Fortunately the next time he performed in Erie, one of the zookeepers attended and actually invited Mike on a backstage tour of the zoo. Mike has since then sponsored a few of the animals and made a donation to the zoo.





In all seriousness: Stay classy Mike, this is just another reason why you're one of my favorite stand-up comedians. Thumbsup


PS. This is a way better story than Noah's Ark, amiright? Big Grin

Yep. And Deepwater Black, and an old Doctor Who episode, and probably some others.

I'm sure your zoo is nice. Your reporter, though, says "Ex-specially."
