A video starring Stephen Fry, which tells the story of the last lonesome bird from Mauritius. Cute and sad.

"...imagine you were the last of your kind..."

Actually that would be a good thing.

Duckboy: I tend to agree with you... extinction is very much an essential part of the evolutionary process, but it`s sad when that extinction is due to humanity changing a species` environment. In the case of pure bred dogs, I also agree. For a while, those pure breds actually served purposes: hunting, pulling sleds, etc. But these days, with only a few exceptions, the pure bred dog serve no real purpose, and their inbred status only hurts their own health. Hybrid vigor!!

I support the extinction of animals, so long as man isn`t the direct cause of extinction. But I also don`t support selective breeding (dogs and cattle), though find the subject extremely fascinating. For instance, I`d like to see all "pure bred" (inscest breds) dogs gone

They could fly. Very well.
They would fly up a d sit on the ship railing, no fear of man.
Sailers could walk right up and pick them up. Thus the term stupid as a Dodo.

Tasty too since they were crock potted to extinction.

Excellent! Informative, entertaining, effective!

However, an NSFW for the "bird sex" eh? )-|

(Just kidding! In case that wasn`t obvious).

Quite cute, not all that sad...

Stephen Fry is awesome.
Meeting him is on my bucket list. Him and the Dalai Lama.

It`s not too late for the Dodo.
Genetic science will bring the Dodo back.
But it won`t happen in the United States because we`re so stupid we banned cloning research.

Thanks again GW.
