    If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle;
    If the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle; if the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.

    Seriously, that is really interesting. Humans should have a similiar organ. Would help to deal with High Blood Pressure.
    I wonder how the Penguing eliminates the salt [sodium cloride from it's body.
    I have figured that salt tends to leech, absorb moisture from the blood, which causes it to thicken and be more difficult for the heart to pump. Seems like the solution is to drink a lot of freshwater and avoid overindulgence in salt.
