7/18/2003: Sea Lion radio



A Steller sea lion named Faith surfaces in Seward, Alaska, revealing a lollipop thingy on her head. The glued-on tracking device will fall off later this summer. Faith is the first Steller to be released into the wild by the people at the Alaska SeaLife Center, and they plan to keep an eye on her for a while.

I thought it was funny because this is the same scale antenna, at the same angle, as the VW antennas.

Great picture, UT. Looks like a party animal, for sure.



Conesus  Friday Jul 18 06:17 PM


How'd ya spot that one?
Good eye, I guess.



Elspode  Friday Jul 18 08:57 PM

I would think that the organization tracking these cars would simply use the sales records instead of going through all the trouble to mount those transmitters on them.

How long does it take the VW antennae to fall off?



Undertoad  Friday Jul 18 09:08 PM

Cos I have one is why! It works pretty well.

CRUNCH. CRUNCH. CRUNCH.

This reminds me of those old candy commercials where the little boy quests to find out how many licks it takes to get to the chocolately-chewy center of a Tootsie Roll lollipop. Finally he finds the old wise owl who promptly crunches the poor boy's lollipop up and informs him that the world may never know.

vague demographic reference

Its always about VWs with you isn't it?



elSicomoro  Saturday Jul 19 01:20 PM

I've been let down again by IotD. Here I was thinking it would be a radio in the form of a sea lion. Or sea lions with their own conservative talk show somewhere.

VWs

you know, i was run over by a VW once.
(explains a lot i guess.)
but i don't have anything against most of them.

Ha. Who are you, Happy Gilmore?

happy gilmore

if i could make my living golfing, i would be, trust me.



Undertoad  Monday Jul 21 01:25 PM

Wait a min, I just realized that Joy's earlier message isn't exactly correct, which is important because it concerns a very important matter... the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie(TM)-Pop.

The wise old owl does crunch into the -Pop but only after taking three licks. Then he announces that the number of licks it takes to get to the center is THREE.

It's the announcer who suggests that the world may never know, but the current thinking we have on the subject remains THREE.

I HAD to make this correction, because I'm using up valuable brain-space remembering that commercial in detail, and before now this information had not been useful at all.



joydriven  Monday Jul 21 02:58 PM

ah—you're right. i can hear him now....

...uttering a very decided 'th-r-r-r-EEE.'
and the dejection on the boy's face as the narrator concludes that the world may never know.
sorry for causing all the extra brain exertion, UT.
