Basically hurling themselves at windows is the worst thing birds do yeah man a kookaburra literally flew into a classroom at my high school and just sat his smug ass down on top of the desk for a good 20 minutes why has nobody mentioned the fact that in australia there are 3-4 months a year where everybody just accepts that they’re going to get attacked by magpies. It is literally called “swooping season” and these birds will fly down to peck your fucking face, and people get their eyes ripped out and shit, it’s fucking brutal. My teacher had to go to hospital and have surgery because of swooping season. It was in the parking lot of school and all the kids would do a mad dash towards the car as the magpies tried to kill us. no but when you’re 12 years old and riding your bike like mad on the way home from school with an icecream bucket on your head with like branches and shit sticking out if it to scare them off and none of this is considered strange what the actual fuck australia  I am pretty sure all of these Australia stories are a massive, globally-spanning trolling effort, and only the people who have visited the country are allowed to be in on the joke. Nope. Went there. Parrots tried to take our car. Came home IN A FUCKING HURRY. Interesting thing about magpies - they’re not great at identifying individual humans visually, but if you make yourself identifiable in some way they’re usually open to reason. We used to have some very aggressive swoopers in our back yard - as soon as they realised that the humans *inside* the fence never bothered them and were the source of the delicious compost heap, they turned into flying black and white guard dogs who would viciously assault any passing stranger but never bothered anyone inside the yard. Several times they swooped at us when we approached from outside, then when we walked into the yard they would pull up and act incredibly apologetic like sorry ma’am I had no idea it was you I would never please don’t stop stocking the food pile. There was another little group of magpies in the park who would attack any solo pedestrian but never bothered anyone walking a dog or pushing a pram, because apparently those were identifiable traits indicating a non-threatening human. In the spirit of inquiry, I started going out of my way to be polite to the magpies - carefully walking a wide arc around them when they were on the ground, etc - and emitting an identifiable call of ‘hello birdie’ before swooping season started.  I spent the next ten years crossing that park at least once a day and as long as I turned at the first flutter of wings and said ‘hello birdie’ to the magpie waiting to attack as soon as my back was turned, I was fine. Every time, the magpie would stare at me for a minute and then fly off to harass some other pedestrian because apparently the magpies and I, we were cool.  Parrots are a lot less open to negotiation, and the little bastards travel in flocks. Beware the parrots.  Australia: the only country where it is necessary to sign a peace treaty with the birds in order to stay unmangled. They did lose the Emu War, after all.

America, Animals, and Beyonce: Being Unapologetically Black In America @balleralert Being Unapologetically Black In America - blogged by: @asimplebijou ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More and more in today's society, we see race becoming a constant topic of conversation in America. With powerful movements such as BlackLivesMatter, Thisiswhywekneel, and many more, race is being brought to the forefront of the oppressor, similar to the way it was many years ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Black artists, directors, activists, actors, actresses, etc. have all utilized their platforms to shed light on the racism that still exists in our nation. Issa Rae, Beyonce, Colin Kaepernick, Kendrick Lamar, and Jesse Williams, have all openly spoke about the struggles we face as black people, while still encouraging us to be unapologetic about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be unapologetically black is to own that sh*t and be proud of it. You have nothing to be embarrassed nor apologetic about. While majority of us were taught to not speak about the discriminatory encounters we face, we can not be silent anymore. We can not let the hatred of others deter us from being proud. We must hold our head high and let them know our black asses has nothing to be ashamed about. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The same oppressors who embded in us that we should be ashamed and embarrassed, are the same ones who regularly appropriate our culture. Stealing our sh*t and not crediting us. They belittle and portray us as nothing but barbaric animals, yet ignore the reality that we are the curators and cultivators of American culture. Be proud and remove those negative stigmas because your blackness is a trait desired by even the fairest of them all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From every variation of our melanin skin, to our full lips, wide hips, broad noses, hairstyles, big butts, be the unapologetic nubian king and queen you are with zero f**ks about who you are envied upon. The very attributes they frown upon, probably are the same ones they are rushing to buy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are unapologetically black brothers and sisters, kings and queens, letting our ......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

Apparently, Espn, and Family: Charles Oakley Ban Lifted, Oakley Wants Apology From Dolan @balleralert Charles Oakley Ban Lifted, Oakley Wants Apology From Dolan - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just like that, CharlesOakley is once again allowed within the walls of MadisonSquareGarden. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ JamesDolan banned Oakley from MSG following an altercation during last Wednesday’s Knicks game. MichaelJordan and NBA commissioner AdamSilver met with Dolan Monday in an attempt to intervene in what Silver calls a “disheartening” situation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It is beyond disheartening to see situations involving members of the NBA family like the one that occurred at Madison Square Garden this past week,” Silver said in a statement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Silver, both parties appear to be apologetic and it appeared as if things could be ironed out in the near feature. Apparently, everything seems to be okay, because the Knicks legend is now allowed to return to the Garden as Dolan’s guest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oakley, though happy with the outcome, isn’t ready to return just yet. He tells The Dan Le Batard Show that right now he is “hurt,” and that he’s already told Silver he won’t return yet. In the meantime, Oakley is asking for an apology, not just for him, but for the fans of New York. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s not about being at the Garden,” Oakley told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. “It’s about the fans. I want them to apologize to the fans. I told the commissioner I want them to apologize to the fans.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He tells the Dan Le Batard Show, “I have never asked for nothing. I love the fans in New York. They’ve been supportive. One of the things I told the commissioner, I want to have a press conference and I want him to apologize to me and the fans. They’ve had my back and they’ve felt the pain. I really appreciate the people all around who’ve had my back.”

Bones, Definitely, and Memes: Swaroup Anand, 23, was awake during cardiac surgery performed at the Bangalore Fortis Hospital, in India. This is my story and not the guys in the meme. A few month ago I had a broken bone and went in for surgery. I woke up during the operation, definitely the most frightening feeling I have felt, trying to communicate but physically not being able, I couldn't move or open my eyes. I could hear everything the doctors were saying and felt everything they were doing but without the pain just pressure and discomfort. I was panicking in my own mind and kept thinking to myself there is no way I can go through this entire opp without them knowing I'm awake. Mentally I knew I had to calm myself down. I noticed that my diaphragm was moving as I was breathing so I held my breath as this was the only thing I could think of doing to give the doctors some indication that I could feel and hear what was happening. This worked, they noticed, as after the only thing I remember was waking up. My body just doesn't seem to take anaesthetics and medications very well. The nurse told me afterwards that whilst they thought I was sleeping he noticed a tear running down my cheek and from that knew something wasn't right as he had never seen this before. He cried himself for me, after I explained to him the whole of their conversations that I had heard. The whole medical staff were obviously very apologetic and couldn't understand how it had happened but it happened. So when I say mind always over matter I mean MIND OVER MATTER no matter what😉✌️❤️ oh and the guy in the meme his surgery was a planned local anaesthetic to show how far open heart surgery has come, kind of like a C section some of us lady's have to go through❤️
