    This is very interesting news for our knowledge base. Thank you for the link Howard.

    "The ground plan of the fossil strikingly resembles living groups of ostracods which shows the pace of evolutionary change has not been particularly fast," he said.

    The copulatory organ of the fossilised male is "large and stout" which indicates that "maybe size mattered" for the ancient ostracods, he added.

    "This is a male and there must have been females around. The discovery tells us something about the biology of reproduction; it provides unequivocal evidence for sex in an animal that lived in the Silurian age," he added.

    In addition to the penis, the scientists were able to trace the animal's entire digestive tract from mouth to anus as well as study anatomical details such as its six pairs of gills and the limbs it used for sensing, feeding and swimming.

    "The whole animal is amazing," Professor Siveter added. "We've got something we could only dream about before."

    Leave it to you to destroy any humor existing in a thread :p. But I like how the animal's Latin name translates into English: Swimmer with a large penis.

    Just to clairify, the entire organism is only 5 mm long. Knowing that, one has to ask, what qualifies as "exceptionally large?"

    If the animal fit human proportions, exceptionally large might only be 0.5 to 1 millimeter (imagine a 6' man with a 14.5 inch penis!).

    Now, I've got to ask, how does one swim with any dexterity when one has a 5 mm body with a 1 mm penis hanging off!

    At least we know that the penis has been an important organ for many millennia. I like the idea of dual function for fertilization and locomotion. Wonder if he got any limbal stimulation from it's use for propulsion, it had to be large for some reason! :p

    Well if you dont want to be informed about pinises and their liquids you obviously shouldnt be reading a penis thread.


    I think leet1 is either A) A lying bastard or B) a lying bastard. Unless he has one of the FAKE mechanical penises:D

    But it was about the size of the original, not what color it's contents were!
