That's beautiful! But those devils hurt when you step on em, unlike a bird, so learn from me and shuffle!

Does a bullnose have a stinger?

If I had a scan of that drawing you did after you got stabbed by one I would post it.

I always think that thing about flying/swimming when I see rays.

Well, we swim before we walk. Sometimes I think our great urge to fly comes from that.

You can't suffocate when you fly.

downtown guy said...

You can if you go high enough.

True.
