    im really logging out after this post and not posting anymore….mods i have a question for u-i know its been asked many times but was never answered….when s/o gets a new screen name why do u feel compelled to tell e/o about it-obviously they changed it for a reason….im not talking about when people have 2 or 3 screen names(or more) and go back and forth between them, that i understand if u announce it-but if s/o switches screen names completely? im really curious why

    random question:

    what color is a polar bear’s skin?

    #631489

    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?

    #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 fur

    charlie- that all depends… that’s a dangerously vague question you ask

    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?

    #631493

    areivimzehlazeh
    Participant

    feivel- its a good thing u retracted that hot topic cuz Rosh Yeshiva was about to deliver a long drasha on it

    #631494

    areivimzehlazeh
    Participant

    google minnow… google pike fish… ok- anyone got the answer yet?

    #631495

    feivel
    Participant

    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.

    areiv

    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”.

    areivim I think you’re right didn’t you say you were a shadchan?

    feivel:

    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 search

    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 counts

    My goodness Feivel what’s so exciting with fish pike?

    areivim – Ok, so let’s hear a valuable suggestion. I think the current RoshYeshiva is already taken.

    How’d you know i’m married-curious?

    #631504

    Curious
    Member

    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.

    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!

    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!
