Re: February 18th Mystery Airline

Air Chathams is based in the Chatham Islands, which look like this from space, and like this on a map and like this on a map in Finland.

Re: February 18th Mystery Airline

Woo!

So, did you recognize the island shapes? Or if not, how the heck did you figure that out? (I poked around a little for airline logos, but all the collections I found were either too small or too enormous.)

Gulls

According to this, the gray-backed gulls have a red-billed and black-billed species.

Re: Gulls

This bit seems dreadfully unfair:

In the immature stages of the red- and black-billed gulls, there is some brown mottling on shoulders and wings, and a stage is passed through when the young red-billed gull has a black bill and the young black-billed gull a red bill

glacier pronounciation

I experimented on some non-Americans at work, and collected the following data:

Melbourne, Australia: partway between glay-shur and glay-see-ur
England: glay-see-ur
South England: glah-see-ur, with the exposition that English from north of London say glay-see-ur, because the South English want to sound posh.
