If you think you have problems with the sometimes slow pace at which
information travels from one computer to another, then consider the
solution offered by this scientific paper: "Snail-based Data Transfer

It describes an experiment in data transfer using real, genuine, live
snails, along with a "lettuce-based guidance system."

No lie.

The papers' authors, Shimon Schocken, dean of Efi Arazi School of
Computer Science <http://www.flatstories.com/arazi/arazi.htm> Herzliya,
and Revital Ben-David-Zaslow of the Department of Zoology at Tel Aviv
University <http://www.tau.ac.il/lifesci/departments/zoology/>, Israel,
reported that their experiment delivered a 37 million bits-per-second
<http://www.isgtw.org/?pid=1001622#B> data transfer rate — faster than ADSL.


The paper does admit to a drawback: "In some regions, most notably
France, culinary habits may pose a denial-of-service (DOS) problem."
