an icy weekend in the heartland. actually timothy mcveigh should be credited for giving oklahoma city official status as the heartland. before the bombing there was always a presumption that the heartland is a little north of here.
i decided to move penguins to my front window in honor of a local much awaited [by weatherman] ice storm. so i'm doing my inhome penguin too. here's my list of penguin related bloggers which manages to include a bit of penguin based snidery at gw

Logo - A microwave oven transformer rewound for a low voltage, high amperage configuration is short circuited using a loose wire as a 'pen', and a sheet of aluminium foil as 'ground'. A camera set for 1.6s exposure shoots the action whilst the pen is touched to the foil and dragged in a semicircle behind Mr. Penguin.
Mr. Penguin is the trademark logo of Penguin's Lab. Once an innocent toy from McDonalds, Mr. Penguin has evolved into an important part of the experiments on this site. Throughout my experiments, he is subjected to quite alot of discomfort.
In high voltage projects, a short stubby plastic object can often be useful in seeing how electrical arcs behave around it.

Thursday is NAKED PENGUIN BLOG DAY!
In honor of BadTux the Snarky Penguin, and in response to his request that AT&T fork over some penguin pornography, the editorial board at Blanton's and Ashton's has decided to expand its foray into the world of smut by publishing naked pictures of an additional species: penguins! We may not be AT&T, but we know how to get our hands on a nude bird.

gay penguin for president [2004]

Gay Penguin: Just as Good
Two of the Bush is worth a bird in the White House:
"I'm also not very analytical. You know I don't spend a lot of time thinking about myself, about why I do things." - President George Bush, aboard Air Force One, June 4, 2003
Many commentators will observe that Gay Penguin himself is not very analytical, nor does he spend time thinking about himself and why he does things. You see, Charles Darwin once wrote about animal intellect:
"It may be freely admitted that no animal is self-conscious, if by this term it is implied that he reflects on such points, as whence he comes or whither he will go, or what is life and death, and so forth." - Darwin, "The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex."
So, if this lack of self awareness is, as Mr. Bush suggests, a political strength, surely no one can "out penguin" an "out penguin"?
But there's more. As we know, a penguin has no real depth of understanding regarding his own death, or the death of others. But perhaps you will agree that Gay Penguin's grasp on such matters is at least as intelligent as Bush's. Consider this thought, but instead of coming from the president of the united states, coming from a telepathic communication with a penguin:
"Look at these different places around the world where there's been tremendous death and destruction because killers kill." - President George Bush, Washington, D.C., Jan. 29, 2004
While an animal like a monkey or elephant may be able to understand death as well as Mr. Bush does- that indeed, what a killer does is kill things- a Penguin might, too. You see, something that Mr. Bush, a Monkey, an Elephant and a Penguin all have in common is that they are all mammals ahem- creatures of instinct. So, it would be safe to say that yes, a Penguin, too, understands that "killers kill."
That's why Gay Penguin walks away from loud, scary people, as well as any natural predator, such as the terrorist Leopard Seal, which eats penguins alive because it "hates freedom".

kaiser penguin - a bout mixing drink but with cute logo
http://www.kaiserpenguin.com/
Kaiser Penguin is a blog about cocktails for the erudite mixologist.
Why on Earth did you name your blog "Kaiser Penguin?"
It is a well-known fact that penguins are members of high society and enjoy fine cocktails. Our very own kaiser penguin would also like me to mention that he also enjoys various treats from the sea.
