You're right, Good. When I lived in Ottawa a flamingo wandered all the way from Cuba to Ottawa. In the winter time. It was spotted and mistakenly identified as an egret, as it had turned snow white from lack of carotene being so far from home. It was then that I learned this about their coloration.

It was unfortunately found very weak a few days later on some ice in the Ottawa river, trying to eat crawfish. In spite of consulting with experts at the conservation in Cuba (from which it was tagged), it did not survive. It's stomach was badly damaged from eating lots of pebbles and sand.

I saw American Sniper recently. Not all snipers shoot to kill.

FF: in 1993 Columbus Ohio police sniper, Michael Plumb, defused a dangerous situation with an armed man by shooting the gun out of his hand.

Fun Fact: Flamingos hatch gray or white. They turn pink/red/orange later in life because of the food they eat.

Not sure what a plastic flamingo eats. Plastic shrimp?

Not surprisingly, that was a result of a college prank, where over 1,000 pink flamingos were displayed on the hill leading to the dean's office in 1979. It only took 30 years (in 2009) for the Madison City Council to decide to give the plastic pink flamingo that designation.

Despite being a Wisconsinite, I wonder what the council members were thinking. Perhaps a little "what the hell, why not" and a taste of the local brew helped them make that decision.

Fun fact: 65% of people believe that the result of last year's coin toss somehow influences this year's, demonstrating a total lack of understanding of independent probabilities.

Fun fact 2: I made that shit up. But I bet a lot of people actually do believe that.

Fun Fact:

In the previous 48 Super Bowls, the coin toss has resulted in "Heads" 24 times, and "Tails" 24 times.

No one could have ever predicted that outcome.
