    So, many believe that we simple 'recycle' ouselves as other creatures. This human form is merely one of many cycles. What do you think your reincarnated self will be next? NOT what you'd like it to be, but think it will be.

    A male Right Whale. Easy oceanic lifestyle, lazy migration pattern...oh, and I almost forgot...they have the largest testicles of any whale species which are capable of producing 20 litres of ejaculate. :wink:

    I'd be a loon because I'm only one letter out anyway. What a peculiar thread

    Well, I'm going to be one lonely hummingbird! :wink: I figure I've already monkeyed around, been a little loony, and... well... forget the other explanations. Just leave it at hummingbird. :D

    doesn't matter, after being the lowest of life form, anything else is a step in a positive direction.

    Did you mean Dorothea Lange? Dorthea Lange is a local drunk that lives in a station wagon with her cats. Got to be so careful what you wish for.

    If it is reincarnation, I guess either will do.

    Close, but no cigar...

    A water bird yes, but they have pointed beaks and dive for fish. The song of the Common Loon over a lake at dusk or dawn has the capacity to make the spirit of every Canadian soar.

    Or the soul of an American visiting the Boundery Waters....

    During the last trip, we had a odd number of guys.. We decided to rent a sea kayak. I was the only one with any kayak experience so I grabbed the first shift... Mind you, Its long and narrow and not really built for a 300lb guy. It was cutting off the circulation to my legs, I couldn't steer the damn thing to save my life and I was very unstable in it.. Quite frustrated

    The first Loon we encountered on that trip (Mudro Lake) dove down and 20 seconds later, resurfaced about 4 feet from my kayak... I think I was as suprised as it was.. We just froze and stared at each other for 3 or 4 minutes.. The kayak sits so low to the water, especially with my big ass in it. We were almost eye to eye.

    After that, everything fell into place... I discovered the rutter in the rear (what an idiot). End up being another great trip.
