MoToMo writes: A friend sent me a link to the 10 Most Bizarre Scientific Papers. The sixth item on the list is: "Pressures Produced When Penguins Poo — Calculations on Avian Defecation". So if you've ever wondered about what happens to herring when our favorite mascot is done with it, you can go check it out. To quote the article: "Ever wondered how far a penguin can fire waste from its anus? Wonder no more. Victor Breno Meyer-Rochow of International University, Bremen, and Jozsef Gal of Lorand Eotvos University, Hungary, used the basic principles of physics to calculate the pressure that builds up inside a penguin."
