I also hope that this brings further recognition to the short story form." read more »

Nature's Law. Gentoo penguins can reach top speeds of 22 mph, swimming! Even squirrels know to avoid GMO foods!

Gentoo penguins “porpoise” by jumping out of the water. They can move faster through air than water, so will often porpoise to escape from a predator.
