Estimate the Airspeed Velocity of An Unladen Swallow... by notquitenglish on 18 July 2004 12:35am
 
Okay, seriously, I found a link to an article on this. Research! Research has been done on this. It is a serious matter and has finally been adequately looked into. Find the link on my site...

That's clever. I like the way the sections are named under Python quotes, to remind everyone it was only semi-serious research. =D

I fully connect with the humorous metaphor of this thread, but can someone please tell me why I keep hearing Sean Connery in my head every time I read it? I'm in pain!

LOL, well I didn't hear Sean, so maybe you're just going insane. =D
