Or, is it a coded guide to different types of programmers ?

From Lucy Cooke's description of tropical latitude penguins in "The Truth About Animals" [^] :
These birds have evolved creative strategies to avoid getting over­cooked. Some species stand around panting like dogs, others are forced to seek out shade. Yellow-eyed penguins trek over half a mile inland (quite a marathon for those little legs) to raise their chicks in the cool of the New Zealand rainforest. Galápagos penguins avoid the brutal equatorial sun by nesting in uncomfortable-looking cracks of coastal lava rock. Humboldt penguins arguably have it even worse. Living on the barren coast of Peru they are forced to improvise shade by carving castles of crap from piles of their own mature manure. Fairy penguins solved the problem by shunning the sun altogether and becoming nocturnal.
I have to admit that "improvise shade by carving castles of crap from piles of their own mature manure" reminded me of someone here, but, I decided not to mention that for fear of raising the temperature of any current brooders WTF | :WTF:
