Re: On Crete, New Evidence of Very Ancient Mariners

Re: Alaska.

Not a lot Min, no. The part I was actually interested in was whether Salmon, and perhaps other species, would lose their instinct for migration under those circumstances. 1-Are the existing land locked Salmon trapped or 2-have they never had access to the oceans.

Re: Throwing Things : HS Did; HN Didn't

This thread is another Classic case here of the usual suspects pissing all over something then patting each other on the back for being so perceptive and thinking correctly.
