Day 13: C’mon Sea Legs, Immaculate Machine

a pinch of fog, you think you’re goin’ blind and an inch of snow, you’re buried alive, all weak in the knees, and tense in the hand, you turn your eyes away or it’ll never get better

“I don’t want other people to decide who I am. I want to decide for myself. I want to avoid becoming too styled and too ‘done’ and too generic. You see people as they go through their career, and they just become more and more like everyone else.” ― Emma Watson

Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q) 

i love crows so much

crows are amazing

My favorite legend is that crows are the souls of the dead

crows are the coolest shit

Yeah but have you seen this 


One extra note:
Crows have been shown to count. Now, this is different than simply being able to recognize a number of items instantly (a phenomenon called subitizing - read up, brains are fantastically cool). Rather, crows can learn and use numerical identities in real life scenarios. In a 2000 study by Smirnova et al., crows were trained to associate arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, etc.) to the number of items that they were supposed to choose from a group. In other words, when shown the number three, they knew to choose three items.
Plus they not only use tools, but manufacture tools appropriate to the task at hand.
Finally, they’re adorable fledglings.
