Re: Archie a non-flyer? (was:Re: origin of bats/reply 2 to TMK)
When you say "by avoiding turbulent airflux", I presume you mean that it is
keeping the airflow laminar. Since the flow is not laminar across the
feather, I'm not sure I follow you. Could you elaborate, please?

By avoiding turbulent airflux. But I'm not sure if there is much
non-aerial activities (specially non-flying ones) that it could help -
e.g. ostrich run very fast with symmetrical feathers.
