you're killing me Neil



from Aerotarandusdynamics:
The Science of Flying Reindeer

<<A new theory, gaining ground in the field's leading journal, Popular Aerotarandusynamics, notes that reindeer, like other herbivores, generate large quantities of lighter-than-air methane in their digestive tracts.  This suggests the creatures' weight could be partially offset by gas, perhaps stored in a specialized bladder, but the existence of such an organ must remain speculative until a specimen can be dissected. >>


there is of course *another* way to make them fly

If you are looking for basis for the mythology, one that I had heard was that in times of yore, reindeer herders, getting bored of a dark winters evening, would feed their reindeer some dangerous mushrooms, which would be filtered through the reindeer's kidneys to something a bit safer, but hallucinogenic, and when drunk, in the eye of the reindeer herder would see flying reindeer, as it was he who was higher than the reindeer.
