Crow: CROW YES!
It’s actually impossible to measure how many fucks a corvid give because there is no device sensitive enough to register such a tiny amount.
science/animal side of tumblr… explain to me the birb thing
Tail Pulling is a behavior noted in many corvids. The practical application is to create a distraction that will allow the birb to make off with the target’s food. Imagine being in the lunch room and a large fellow has a Twinkie you covet. You can’t just take it from him because he’ll defend his Twinkie. But if you thwap him on the back of his neck and then dash around to snag the Twinkie while he investigates, you stand a decent chance of enjoying spongey goodness. This is basically that in birb form.
Except corvids don’t only do this as a distraction. Sometimes they seem to just being doing it to mess with other animals/birbs. But to use my lunch room analogy, there are times you might thwap someone sneakily on the back of the neck just for amusement. Primates exhibit behavior that appears to be just be annoying other animals for amusement. Given how intelligent crows are, its not unlikely that this is a manifestation of an innate desire to just fuck with someone else for the fun of it. Such as this from the link above:
THANK YOU FOR THE BIRB KNOWLEDGE

Hello tumblr! I’m back. It’s been quite a while. I missed you.
So, regarding the title of this post:
I recently attended an event where Latin was spoken. I also bought a t-shirt that said “Ask me about speaking Latin”. I will say right now that out of the twenty or so people who asked me about it, nineteen were super nice and were just curious. To the one other guy who tried to convince me I was stupid for learning Latin: no.
I love this language tons. It was the linguistic equivalent of my high school sweetheart. It’s not stupid to study it. It really isn’t a dead language. And I can prove it.
Warning, grouchy rant about Latin below the line.
If you don’t get this reference, you’re too young for tumblr.
are you fucking kidding me pixar puts out a movie ever year a baby would get this reference
it’s not pixar it’s a reference to that time in 1994 when lamps became sentient humanoids
many were lost that day
It was a grim day for mankind. My parents took refuge in a cave and thus saved us from certain death; we lived close to a lamp factory at the time and the surrounding region was utterly devastated in the conflict.
My brother fought one off using only an egg whisk and a pogo stick.
Only 90s kids remember the Lampocalypse
My father still has the scars from where one stole his kidney
Ironically, it was a dark time.

Please don’t buy this system.
cant you just turn the camera around or put a blanket over it.

Videogame consoles are not supposed to spy on you.
Videogame consoles are not supposed to potentially rat you out to the government.
Videogame consoles are not supposed to arbitrarily decide who sees what’s on the screen and what’s not.
I have never told anyone not to buy a videogame console, but in this case, knowing what I know about the Xbox One, I am seriously imploring people not to buy this machine. The console will not be consumer-friendly, and between the above and an always-on internet connection, how do you know your hobby isn’t siphoning personal information to…well, who knows who?
Suffice it to say, the Xbox 360 will be my last Microsoft console. I don’t care how many more Halo games get churned out.
Adding this here from my videogame blog because it’s too important, and the potential for Microsoft to spy on us, then report findings to the government if asked…yeah, no.
Spread the word!
If you haven’t read George Orwell’s “1984”, do so.
MAN EVERYONE’S ALWAYS LIKE “DARK CHOCOLATE SUCKS” “CAN I HAVE SOME OF THAT CHOCOLATE UNLESS IT’S DARK” “WHY DO PEOPLE EVEN LIKE DARK CHOCOLATE IT’S SO GROSS” LIKE FUCK YOU MAN MORE FOR ME I’LL TAKE THAT SHIT IF U DON’T WANT IT
when im older and my kid needs me to sign something for school im just gonna write “Dad” in really crappy handwriting so it seems like my kid forged my signature and the teacher calls to tell me and im just “yes no it is i dad”
i posted this when i accidentally took too much medication
screw you guys
the kid that sits behind me in geometry is a really good artist and once I turned around and he was spending an extensive amount of time shading in the collarbones of the guy he was drawing, so I whispered
“careful John, your gay is showing”
and he just winked
So, apparently John has a tumblr and if he sees this I will track all of you down and rip your beating hearts from your chest one by one
Signal boost for John.
when I’m a parent, I’m going to give my child the day of the full moon off from school every month and see how long it takes the administration to notice
reason 325 why tumblr users should never be parents
reason 325 why tumblr users should definitely be parents
