Leopard Seal: Seal Club

We’ve seen several Orcas (Killer Whales) in the comic so far. Though at the top of the food chain in Antarctica, Orcas are not the biggest threat to penguins as their diet consists mainly of fish and secondly of seals. Penguins are pretty quick and kind of small to be worth their effort. However penguins are still careful to stay clear of them and out of the water when they are near.

So… there is another creature that loves him some penguin, also at the top of the Antarctica food chain, and that is the Leopard Seal. Named for its massive jaws and its spotted fur, it is the most ferocious looking of seals, these guys even feed on other seals. This is the true predator of penguins. Their head is often described as being reptilian. They sort of slither low on the ice and spend most of the time in the water. In fact, Osbourne is really not in much danger here, his little waddle is much more efficient on the ice compared to the sluggish Leopard Seal out of water. In the water would be another story.

I know seal clubbing is kind of a serious issue for some, so I apologize to those sensitive to the subject. You’ll have to excuse Wally’s ignorance. It is unfortunate that Canada still practices the art of seal pup massacre for their skins to this day.

Sorry to leave on a sad note. There’ll be another funny comic tomorrow to put a smile back on your face.

    I somewhat resent you saying about Canada slaughtering seal pups. The mother of my baby girl (We’re not together) is an inuit from Pond Inlet, and her family has to hunt Seals just to survive up there. The only other food source there is the few fish, Narwhales and Caribou, but Caribou isn’t that healthy. Anyway, I know seal cub poaching is exploited in some other areas of my country, but in some it is an absolutely necessary part of daily life.

  • eris

    Tukadian, it is an entirely different affair when you kill an animal and eat it/use it for survival. That is not what the joke refers to, those people who are actually utilizing a resource for daily life and survival.

    The joke refers specifically to those outrageous and unneccesary exploitations of a resource solely for one purpose, profit. Don’t feel offended, it was perhaps a far too general statement regarding Canada instead of “parts of Canada” but that’s about all I would say was wrong.

    Of course, there is a downside: If you don’t have an Internet connection, you won’t be able to use AlwaysOnPC. So if you really need to have local copies of your files, make sure they are synced to your Dropbox folder.

    hi everyone..this info can be very helpful for everybody on this planet, if you still need anything from this life…Read…and Act…this is science , everybody should know. Best of luck!

    Have you ever wondered why some people just thrive in life, and everything they touch turns to success while others are always just getting by?

    Most people don’t know how easy it is to create their dream life. They struggle for years trying all sorts of things until they are blue in their face and finally stop believing that they have the ability and power to manifest anything. People think that only a few specially gifted people can manifest miracles and attract whatever their heart desires. The truth is that even though materializing money out of thin air may seem impossible to the rational mind, it is as natural as the warmth from the sunshine above.

    You were born with a natural ability to materialize thoughts into physical form. It is your very nature. From the time you were a small child, you had the power to create your reality. It is a gift you were given to help you learn how to empower and enlighten yourself in this world. By simply learning how to harness the hidden power of your mind, you will start seeing what a magical manifesting being you truly are. The golden key is in learning how to relax your body, focus your mind, and increase your joy vibration.

    “Like attracts like. Whatever the conscious mind thinks and believes, the subconscious mind identically creates.” ~Brian Adams

    The greatest cosmic joke on mankind is that we are just human, and not also divine. When the mind opens up to realize the fact that you must have both spirit and matter to exist, then your playground becomes a thousand times bigger. When you accept the divine aspect of yourself, you stop being limited by the thoughts you’re thinking and start opening yourself to being the creator of each one. You begin to understand how to manifest your destiny.

    The first thing you want to practice is having a constant positive focus of your mind. By holding a simple positive intention 24 hours a day, you can mysteriously materialize your desires without lifting a single finger! You think this is a joke, yet I do this everyday and it works! I simply hold onto the feeling of what I want to manifest as if it has already happened, and trust that it’s already on its way.

    Perhaps you are like many of us who were taught to believe that you aren’t connected to a higher power, or don’t have the time to fool around with learning how to manifest your dream life. You may be running on autopilot, and unaware of the skeptical saboteur that is controlling your thinking. It’s often this negativity and resistance to the new, which keeps one stuck in the same old patterns, income, relationships and tired way of living. You have exactly what it takes to let go, and consciously retrain your brain to embrace the new. This is the golden key to become a manifesting magnet!

    “Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the Universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.” ~Shakti Gawain

    The experience of manifestation is a natural occurrence that can happen for anyone when they have the right knowledge, vibration and awareness. By practicing this exercise below, you’ll begin to create a subtle shift in your thinking, which will take you into FEELING that you can do anything! Below are 4 powerful secrets that will help you start FEELING that you can make this shift and start manifesting your destiny this week!

    Secret #1 Have absolute clarity on what you truly want to manifest. The more specific your intention is, the easier it is for the Universe to know what you really want. Specific desires create specific results. Vague request and unclear goals create wishy-washy results.

    Secret #2 Choose to manifest one thing at a time. If you pour your energy into 8 different desires you’ll only be giving a little energy to that special one that truly matters. Pick the one that matters THE MOST to you, that makes your heart sing, and stick with it (and only it) for 90 days in a row at the very least.

    Secret #3 Hold your Intention for 3 minutes a day. A powerful intention stems from a true desire found deep inside your heart. Choose to focus on a desire that is totally free from any “shoulds”, “need to’s”, and “have to’s”. This means you feel empowered, alive and free anytime you think about it.

    Secret #4 Have FUN visualizing your desire happening for you. If you are too serious about it you’re cutting off that warm fuzzy flow of manifesting energy. Lightness always wins over hardness in the end, and its best to enjoy each moment of your life to the fullest!

    “Vision is not enough. It must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs.” ~Vaclav Havel

    If you want to see results fast, it’s important to take action in the world whenever your motivation arises. The Universe needs to know that you really want to manifest this one thing, so taking inspired action steps is how you communicate your sincerity. Anytime you act from inspiration it also increases the level of joy in your body. When your energy is HIGH enough the Universe will effortlessly bring whatever you want to you.

    When your joy-valve is 100% open, and you FEEL like you could skyrocket over the moon, the manifestations you desire spontaneously occur. They’ll show up like magic, divine synchronicities that may make you think you had nothing to do with it. Yet, as you start living from inspired actions daily, you’ll see your desires manifest faster and easier.
