    “It’s a simple question of weight ratios. A five ounce bird could not carry a 1 lb. coconut. ... In order to maintain air speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings 43 times every second, right?”

    ”It could be carried by an African Swallow.”

    “Oh, yeah. An African Swallow, maybe. But not a European Swallow--that’s my point!”

    ”Oh, yeah. I agree with that!”

    “But then, of course, African Swallows are not migratory...”

    ”Ohhh, yeah...”

    “So they couldn’t bring a coconut back anyway.”

    ”Wait a minute!! Supposin’ TWO swallows carried it together?”

    “Nawww, they’d hafta have a line.”

    ”Well, simple! They’d just use a strand of creeper!”

    “Wot? Held together under the dorsal guiding feathers??”

    ”Why not?!”

    Hey,
    That would be the meaning of life according to the all knowing Douglas Adams in his sci-fi bible, the hitch-hikers guide to the galaxy. If you haven't read it, do it NOW! It is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest piece of sci fi ever written. Long live the babel fish!!!!!!!!!

    “It’s a simple question of weight ratios. A five ounce bird could not carry a 1 lb. coconut. ... In order to maintain air speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings 43 times every second, right?”

    But is he correct?

    more on that later. Must ask an ornithology professor here at Rutgers. It would be interesting to know!
