Pigeon: the smuggler

Out with the new and in with the old, welcome back nature's brilliant technology. In Brazil, some tertiary professionals (criminals) figured out how to send cell phones to their buddies in jail by using pigeons. If you're a pigeon, do not despair, despite the downturn in the economy there are jobs for you. Plenty of birdseeds provided for your personal indulgence and the indulgence of friends and families. This technology of nature has been around from time immemorial.

Now if my readers will allow me a little diversion from the topic, I want to talk a bit about nature in general. Nature can be complex but it is also an open book. It seems to nudge, nudge, and give us a hint, hint about its capabilities. You know when I see an apple tree and an apple falling all I think of is whether the apple is ripe or not and if can I eat it. But long ago there was a man named Newton and when he saw an apple falling he came up with the theory of gravity which is taken for granted today.

You know these nature watchers (scientists) and prophets see things that we in general are either not capable of seeing or don't care to see. Before you dismiss them, think about it.

  1. Dude, that started off reallyfunny and ended up being pretty deep. Nice.

  2. Fish, thank you. Life has always bewildered me especially the extraordinary intelligence which nature displays all around us. I remember when I was just a kid (four or five years old) lying on a deck chair, on my parents’ farm, looking at the sky and moving clouds -simply mesmerizing. And that amazement towards nature has continued throughout my life.
