I believe it is not about Amazon Forest, but about Amazon River. -- ‎ (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Skeletonize a cow

Isn't there an urban myth that pirahnas can skeletonize a cow in under 2 minutes? 10:32, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

According to [1], it's not myth - you only need few nets and few hundreds of piranhas. It was not mentioned how far they needed to go to get that number of piranhas, but I would suppose setting up that kind of practical joke can't take more that few days. -- Hkmaly (talk) 11:55, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Does Amazon sell beef by any chance? I mean: while can probably ship a package from Iquitos to Manaus, the Amazon can only nearly, because Manaus is situated a few kilometers upstream of a river branch where the package from Iquitos would float by. Makes me think whether there is a similiar comparison with skeltonized cows. Hence beef. 15:25, 25 January 2013 (UTC) madd

Reason for comparison

I think the main reason for this comparison is the dispute over the .amazon TLD between on one side and Brazil and Peru on the other. -- 11:38, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

I assume you mean this article (or alike): 09:40, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Is anyone else thinking what I am?

Its been a while since Munroe has given something seriously good/thoughtful.... I am getting the inner feeling that he is planning something big. Like BIG . Anyone here concurs with me? 14:18, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

I will second that. It has been a while since he has had any labour intentive jokes. 16:57, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Rounds 1-13

Am I the only one who wants to know what the other 11 criteria might be? 19:10, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

No. But we know 3 of them, right? So we just need 10 more. 18:52, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

We need 11 more. This is criterion 14, and we know 3 of them including this one. 22:46, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
