I think I might have even seen a similar image used in that national cell phone commercial. Mine is of course much better. The last statement should be read with overt sarcasm in mind, thank you.

Your's is much better.
Here, I stacked 'em for you. Is the one in front holding a feather in his beak? Maybe whoever has the feather gets to lead.

If you've seen a flight of geese in one of the cell phone commercials, I'll accept it, although I think it is stretching it a bit. Bills interpretation has better bars but I think a fair bit of bit-twiddling has taken place there. :lol::lol:

Here is a trivia question for you. You know how geese always fly in a Vee formation. One side of that vee is generally shorter than the other. Do you know why?

Less Birds. :O

Sorry Cal, I couldn't resist.
If there is a scientific reason I would love to here what it is.

Actually smac, I'm sure the scientific reason is either that there are fewer geese on one side than the other ;-)
Or......It's deployed as a strategy for dealing with wind.
Maybe a crosswind, and the short side takes the brunt of the wind, while the long side are attempting to shield each other.
A slightly less efficient formation than the full V.

If there is an even number of geese one side has to be longer by 1.

"Less Birds. :O"

Smac hit the nail right on the head! It was a simple question with an obvious answer but you'd be surprised how many people read more into it.
