TYW says they printed tanyas.
Not the only inaccuracy. Although that's to be expected from them.

Just putting it out there...

Very disappointed with PenguinBOT. I was expecting a lot more posts. Did the Bot EVEN go on the boat??

They ended up having data on the ship, so didn't need to use SMS thru satellite.
I'm not who you think I am.

Doesn't answer my question. So SF and Dan went on, that we saw. But what proof do we have that PenguinBOT actually went on the boat?

My thoughts exactly. It seems that the penguin was scared of Antarctica.

The reason you all can't see the penguin is because she (not a he) blends in perfectly.
I just found a new supply of forks!

We'll know if it is male or female if zhe is pictured in the Binshpachami magazine pieces about the trip.
