} Multiple questions, eh? Well, I don't usually do multiple questions,
} but as you've plied me with enough compliments, here goes:
} How do fish learn to swim?
} Fish learn to swim by a complex process known as "aquatemation."
} Essentially, when a baby fish, or fishling, is hatched, it does not
} know how to swim. Nor does it know how to breathe by passing water
} through its gills to collect oxygen. In fact, it doesn't even know
} it's a fish. As you might guess, in this state, a fishling is very
} vulnerable. That's the reason fish lay so many eggs -- many fishlings
} become confused and distracted, and end up becoming lower lifeforms,
} such as plankton, flatworms, or lawyers.
} Anyway, those fortunate fishlings who get their acts together notice,
} shortly after hatching, that other creatures in the water are moving
} about them in a horizontal manner. On the other hand, the fishling is
} rapidly descending into the ocean depths, as it's just sitting there
} motionless. In the complex, lightning speed of aquatemation, the
} fishling comes to several key realizations: "Hey, there are creatures
} in the water." "Hey, I'm also a creature." "Hey, I don't feel so
} good, but the water going over my gills seems to help." "Hey, those
} other creatures are moving, and I'm sinking. Maybe if I move my fins
} and tail like they do... Yes! Yes, that's it! I'm moving!! I'M
} Thus reassured about its place in the universe, the fishling goes on to
} become the catch of the day at your local seafood restaurant.
} Can birds fly backwards and upside down?
} This is a little know fact among you mortals, but birds DO fly upside
} down and backwards. What you think is the head of a bird is really the
} tail. And the top is really the bottom. This may be the same for a
} lot of people you know.
} If fork() creates a child process, what does knife() do?
} Knife() creates a black-sheep-of-the-family process. That's a process
} that happens but that no one wants to claim is theirs.
} You owe The Oracle dinner. All this talk about fish, fowl and forks is
} making me hungry...
