Now then, this must be one of the ancient wonders of the world - maybe it's because their wee feet are insulated against electricity charge LOL - heck I don't know Rabbie, Leonard will need to enlighten me on this one.

Is it because they have short tail feathers?

Would that not have 'short'ed them out? Attached Image

I think the answer is because they have no conact with the ground, therefore no charge goes through them. I am no 'sparks' so am just guessin.

Thats right Rab, for a current <flow of electons / charge>, there has to be a Potential Difference (PD), or Voltage. So as long as they don't connect to the deck or across a dissimiliar voltage (3 phase) on the grid, they are fine. Highly charged so thurr wee feathers ruffle up.

Remember playing wi that Van de Graafe torture device in yer physic class?

Form a ring, hold hand, wazz the bugger up tae its going laldy. Nea bother as ye all charge up the same, noo then some bright spark decides to let go of yer hand an ye both get a wee belt.

Also, our wee birdie friends are really quite clever, they have taken to wearing pvc, latex and rubber footware. Apparently, this keeps their wee legs warm in the winter.

Is it my imagination, or is it awfie quiet in here?

I made pals with this burd today down at the harbour. Maybe I should have asked her/him? AC/DC?

It was Auntie, but that Rab wan just turnuped after having a fly relationship with some bird, an av'e been oot oggling at Mars and logging 2 ISS flyovers, cause I am jist daft like that.

Lovely night out tonight, wee bit nippy aroond the lugs and nae moon, so it's dark and ideal for meteor hunting Had a close call with nature too, one of my kitties was skulking under the trees while I was having a ferret aboot looking for me sunglasses, she jumped and I jumped even higher. Close call.

Right it's time tae thaw oot again, fridge raid, there goes me night vision and focus.

It's a lovely cool, crisp night outside. Alas, too cauld for me to feel like taking my wee dogs for a walk. So, sitting here in ma goonie with a cup of coffee at the side whilst doggies are asleep.

I would upload photies if I knew how to do it these days. I used to be able to do this all the time, but as I've mentioned before somehow, I can't do it since my computer was regiggered. I put my driver in for the camera today as I had forgotten in my haste to do so after the rebuild and, I still can't remember how I got them onto the GG Gallery, but I'm in there way back somewhere.
