you got me there Rosh Yeshiva- and that’s why we have you round here. For your pure wisdom and direction- showing us the straight path to the…. coffee roomJanuary 13, 2009 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm #631484
hey take it easy areivim. just curious cuz i don’t work in an office.January 13, 2009 6:43 pm at 6:43 pm #631485
leave curiosity to curious- you stick to your specialtyJanuary 13, 2009 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #631486

what color is a polar bear’s skin?January 13, 2009 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #631489charlie brownMember
hmmm, I noticed that things have been mysteriously disappearing from my desk every time I log on to the CR. areivim, how much to get them back?January 13, 2009 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #631490
i retract my question
i was going somewhere with this, that pb fur is fiberoptic directing sunlight to their black skin which absorbs it.
this is an old idea which has been proven to be false, i discovered on googling it.
their skin is black though, under the furJanuary 13, 2009 8:13 pm at 8:13 pm #631491
charlie- that all depends… that’s a dangerously vague question you askJanuary 13, 2009 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #631492
if a minnow is attacked by a pike fish and its skin is broken, why does it emit a chemical that attracts more pike to it?January 13, 2009 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #631493
feivel- its a good thing u retracted that hot topic cuz Rosh Yeshiva was about to deliver a long drasha on itJanuary 13, 2009 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #631494
google minnow… google pike fish… ok- anyone got the answer yet?January 13, 2009 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #631495
its a lumdish answer
four facts will help you divine the answer:
1. there are large pike and small pike.
2. large pike will eat small pike.
3. large pike swallow minnows whole.
4. small pike generally damage minnows before they are able to eat them.January 13, 2009 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #631496
there is a fish called a “pike minnow” which will make googling the answer very difficult, the pike minnow googles will be a “red herring”.January 13, 2009 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #631497
areivim I think you’re right didn’t you say you were a shadchan?January 13, 2009 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #631498
This seemingly suicidal behavior is actually a clever survival strategy. The minnow’s chemical has two distinct functions. First, it warns other minnows about the danger. Minnows travel in schools with close relatives, so this chemical alarm warns the others away from potentially dangerous waters. Even if the original minnow is eaten, its brothers and sisters will live to reproduce. From a genetic standpoint, this self sacrifice makes sense.
You might wonder about the chemical’s other function though–to attract more pike. A minnow’s skin is most likely to be damaged in an attack from a relatively small pike. Larger pike simply swallow their minnows whole. Because of this, the alarm substance is usually released when a small pike is attacking. This means that the chemical might well attract pike that are larger than the minnow’s current assailant. Pike have no qualms about eating other pike, so if a big one sees a smaller pike chasing a tiny minnow, that big pike will go after the larger mouthful, allowing the minnow to escape.
BTW, it was #1 on my second google searchJanuary 13, 2009 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #631499
ok curious- you now seem fit to be a Rosh Yeshiva’s wife. it’s not about having the knowledge, it’s knowing where to get it that countsJanuary 14, 2009 2:07 am at 2:07 am #631501
My goodness Feivel what’s so exciting with fish pike?January 14, 2009 4:53 am at 4:53 am #631502
areivim – Ok, so let’s hear a valuable suggestion. I think the current RoshYeshiva is already taken.January 14, 2009 5:14 am at 5:14 am #631503
How’d you know i’m married-curious?January 14, 2009 5:35 am at 5:35 am #631504
So my guess was correct, huh?
My understanding was that nobody gets married as a “rosh yeshiva”. That title only comes years later, with the help of a supportive wife. 🙂
BTW areivim I’m taking your above comment as a compliment.January 14, 2009 6:21 am at 6:21 am #631505
curious: only that my wife doesn’t support my posting on the CF she thinks it’s a waste of time especially for a RY!January 14, 2009 3:02 pm at 3:02 pm #631507squeakParticipant
Why CF and not CR?January 14, 2009 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #631508noitallmrParticipant
feivel- You feeling all right asking everone to start googling pike fish’s suicidical methods? Oh Boy!
R.Y- The real proof that you aint a R.Y is that you wrote “only that my wife doesn’t”. A REAL Rosh Yeshiva would’ve written “only that my REBBETZIN doesn’t”!! Gotcha!
