But I am still bored....

So....

Kevin:

Hey, thanks much. This explains my futile attempts at duck-hunting as a
youth with my father, using a kazoo-like instrument which was supposed to be
a duck-call. This instrument, in fact, did not echo (at least to my hearing,
see 1) below), so that, it seems, it was not indeed much of a duck call. All
was well, in the end, because, though I like games, and am game for almost
anything, duck is a bit too gamey for my tastes. However, it seems that our
dogs were completely fooled by the fake "duck call", though the ducks were
not, which leads me to believe that ducks are more sensitive to echo than
dogs.

If you have more time on your hands, could you please find answers and URLs
for:
1) Echo sensitivity amongst animals (apparently, bats first and dogs last)
2) The degree to which "duck call" gizmos actually immitate the call of a
duck (both frequency and time-domain analyses), and the degree to which
ducks are actually fooled by such gizmos.

Echo in Echo
Hi there, First of thank you for reading. I have the following issue. I'm filling a select list dynamically with mysql and want the names that are retrieved from de database to be changed by a DEFINE that stated in other php file.. The first part works the names al get in the list but the DEFINE isn't happening which is logic cause you have only one echo which is the name from the database. But putting an echo around that one doesn't work, does any of you have a idea how to solve my issue. Code: <select id="objectTypeSelect" tabindex="2"> <?php...
