    Make sure you're a flying penguin, so you can migrate to warmer places and not have to spend the Antarctic winter in sub-zero darkness.

    with climate change...that should not be a problem. The main problem will be survival and finding enough food.

    Climate change or not, Antarctica will still be dark for months. Far better to migrate to where the sun shines like these penguins above do.

    I don't know if the Earth will physically flip, but the magnetic poles may be in the process of reversing right now, as they periodically do. No one is sure how long it takes, but some think it can happen almost instantly. Of course, that has little to do with penguins.

    I think that is the full version, just done as a little featurette piece to show the flying penguins, and showcase the BBC DVR service.

    It happens, at its quickest, in about 3000 years. However, they're never stable. They're always changing (such as the South American Anomaly). icon_wink.gif

    Yeah I watch too many documentaries. icon_lol.gif

    Well as a pilot you must deal with magnetic anomalies all the time. In the Army I merely had to deal with land navigation via magnetic compass, before the days of GPS.

    Our biggest problem was that Magnetic North is in northern Canada, not at the North Pole. Hence our military grid maps, which are drawn to polar north, have a magnetic declination, or difference, between these 2 norths. And Magnetic North does drift a little over time, so you have to readjust your calculation periodically.

    For instance, your compass may be pointing to 0º N, but that's not true north. If you want to travel to true north you must consult your map legend for the degrees of magnetic declination, and alter your compass heading by the same number of degrees.

    You should only wish that all Army compasses point to your bed. icon_wink.gif

    I hope the baptist won't now equate homosexuality with necrophilia.
