Apparently, College, and Complex: r/AskReddit What perfectly true story of yours sounds like an outrageous lie? RamsesThePigeon 13d, 17h Just up the street from my apartment in San Francisco, there was one of those fast food restaurants that was either a KFC or a Taco Bell, depending on the angle from which it was viewed. The establishment was a frequent stopping point for students coming from the nearby college... and those students were a frequent target for a remarkably bright crow Now, on most days, the bird in question would just hang around the restaurant (as well as other ones nearby) and scavenge for scraps. Every once in a while, though - I saw this happen twice, and had it happen to me once - it would enact a much more complex scheme than simply going through the gutter: The crow had apparently discovered that money could be exchanged for food, so it would wait until it saw a likely mark, squawk at them to get their attention, then pick up and drop a coin. Anyone who responded would witness the bird hopping a few feet away, then following its "victim" toward the source of its next snack. When the crow approached me, it dropped a nickel on the ground. I stooped, picked up the coin, and then jumped slightly when the bird made a noise that sounded not unlike "Taco!' Needless to say, I bought that crow a taco. The final out-of-pocket cost for me, minus the nickel, was something like >l.T5. Even so, I figured a bird that smart deserved a reward simply for existing Of course, that was probably exactly what I was supposed to think. TL;DR: A crow paid me five cents to buy it a taco. onyourleftbooob: nadiaoxford: I don’t have a hard time believing this.

Much like his schemes, it might end up being more work, but in his mind, cheating is the best way to get ahead.<br/><br/>Edd goes the neat and logical way, he’s straight forward. BUT, note that he closes the gate behind him rather than leaving it open. He’s incredibly meticulous and even if it’s more convenient to leave it open for anyone coming in behind him, he has to leave things neat, tidy and as he found them.<br/><br/>Ed is also is straight forward, he in fact is using the MOST direct route. But this route is one no one else would consider because it seems completely nonsensical. Which sums him up pretty well. The fact that it works for him is also fun to note. In general his earnestness and determination carries him through situations that most people would be stopped by.</p> </blockquote> <p>I honestly never thought I’d see a critical analysis of <em>Ed, Edd, and Eddy</em></p> </blockquote> <p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="375" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m2wui4ZcZF1qh8ptoo1_500.jpg"><img alt="" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/b6866e5b90cb815a471d675442639b18/tumblr_inline_p7kc2qJE2F1tdwdz1_540.jpg" data-orig-height="375" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m2wui4ZcZF1qh8ptoo1_500.jpg"/></figure></p> </blockquote></blockquote>
