Another topic that has been trashed from the start, typical, bloody typical...oh, and funny!

To change tack and stay on topic...

How intelligent is a parrot? Wouldn't it depend on the parrot? It's just a general nonsense question.

The study is ludicrous. It is like trying to compare chalk and cheese.

I remember the Oric. Wasn't that a 6502 based machine?

'Alas poor Oric, I knew him well.' Fred Shakearrow 1600 - 1657 (4 o'clock till 3 mins to five)

We have a flock of parrakeet's fly over our home on their way to work every dawn and home to roost every dusk. They are intelligent enough to survive the UK's weather, but not so bright as to go back to where they belong.
