_@_v - snail reference from ninotchka [29 Jan 2006|06:57am]

"oh, you analyze everything out of existence. you'd analyze me out of existence but I won't let you. love isn't so simple, ninotchka. ninotchka, why do doves bill and coo? why do snails, the coldest of all creatures, circle interminably around each other? why do moths fly hundreds of miles to find their mates? why do flowers slowly open their petals? oh, ninotchka, ninotchka, surely you feel some slight symptom of the divine passion? a general warmth in the palms of your hands, a strange heaviness in your limbs, a burning of the lips that isn't thirst but something a thousand times more tantalizing, more exulting, than thirst?"

_@_v - from the wikipedia article on snails

In addition to being a common metaphor for a slow person, the snail is traditionally considered in many countries to predict the weather with its behaviour. In Finland this has led to a rhyme, where the snail is asked to show his tentacles. If the snail wears his "horns" high, tomorrow will be fine weather.

Snail is also the name of the Ultimate Frisbee team for the State University of New York at Geneseo.

A snail can withstand the force of air at over 75 Mph (120 km/h) whilst still being able to move across the bonnet of the moving vehicle at the same time.
