Pigeons Beat ADSL

I hate to contribute to the whole blog-echo effect, but this just cracked me up too much to not post. Engadget reports on a group in Israel who ran a transmission speed test between their local ADSL internet connection and three trained pigeons over a distance of 100km. The pigeons ended up outrunning the ADSL transfer rate, delivering 4gigs of data via memory cards strapped to their legs. I don’t know which is funnier… the wording of the Engadget write up, or the fact that people were so frustrated with their internet connection that they did this.
