why do we have have vehicles that can do in excess of 100 Miles and hour plus but the speed limit is 70?

The only place legally you can do more then that is on private land or a race course!

 

Why do they not just make vehicles that stay within the speed limit? surely it would cut down accidents?

 

 

" Goes back into my cave "

 

I think you will find that certain sections of the autobahns in Germany are free of speed limits.

Surely, if you limit the maximum speed then getting to the maximum would take longer therefore causing more tailbacks?

 

I want to see new vehicles that are governed in speed control areas (say 30mph) where a satellite signal forces vehicles to slow down. the technology is there. Why not use it?

Thanks Silverfox, I have never been out the UK lol

 

I myself wish people would not speed, they may think it gets them to wherever they are going faster but it may also result in tragic circumstances :(

Why do all animals have tongues ?

 

If you think some animals don't have tongues, name them.

We could do with some help from you.

Other animals naturally have no tongues, such as sea stars, sea urchins and other echinoderms, as well as crustaceans,

 

 

 

Did not use Google :)

Very good.

 

Reptiles, snakes and fish have tongues. Very few animals don't, because they don't breathe and eat through their mouths.

I would have thought that tongues are there for a reason.

They help when chewing food

Snakes tongues taste the air

Some lizards use their tongues to catch their food.

 

I can't remember if this is true of all whales but one of them has a tongue that fills with blood when it gets too hot. this then cools the blood.

Snakes tongues taste the air
afaik, technically their tongue itself doesnt actually 'taste' the air, rather it senses stuff in the air to be 'tasted' inside. which is why they retract the tongue often.

no doubt though googly will prove me wrong :)

Apparently the tongue of a blue whale can weigh up to 3 tons and is apparently the largest tongue in the animal world.

Yes tongues are using for a variety of reasons. I think you are correct about the Whale. Blue Whale ? Whale tongues are huge.

 

Male Rhinos use their tongues and mouths in a disgusting way to see whether Females are fertile. Just don't be eating watching any wildlife programmes.:jaw:

How do male Rhinos use their tongues and mouths in a way to see whether Females are fertile? :)

 

This is gross, so be prepared.

 

The Male Rhino sniffs the air, extends lips and tongue to get distant signs of a fertile Female. Then if that is not enough they will seek out the dung of the Female and they take it in their mouths, with tongue analysing it. Apparently the Female is only ready for mating for a few days over their normal cycle, so the Male is using all senses.

 

Hope you are enjoying that chocolate brownie :madgrin:

All the talk of Rhino's reminds me:

 

What's the difference between an orthopaedic surgeon and a rhinoceros?

 

 

 

 

One is horny all the time, is thick skinned, and charges a lot.

The other is a large 4-legged mammal from the African continent!

Worse than that, I knew some of the scientists working on the project as they wanted to try and make the rhinos better at breeding. Hands up if your freezer has bags full of Rhino dung. Me? I got to look at the mud they wallowed in and the grass they ate.
