Crows are scary
They

  • 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.

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

Yeah but have you seen this

The weirdest thing is that people talk about “coming out” as if it’s this big momentous thing that only happens once while in actual fact it’s something that you do almost every single day every time you talk to a new person every time you’re in a new situation you’re constantly weighing your options, the ability to be your true self vs the advantages of being a false self and honestly it’s so fucking exhausting

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.

    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

You’re all so fucking stupid. As an archaeology student you guys embarrass me in all levels. Noses in statutes are the most fragile parts since it’s not secured, and guess what greek and egyptians had different materials to built and sculpt, and oh my god, ever you ever though about the fucking climate (wow they have different climates who knew right), fuck yeah, if you ever fucking lived a little, or read more books, or turned off History Tv Channel and actually read BOOKS from trusted egyptologists you would be surprised by the amount of knowledge that would get into your fucking little minds.

Also, let me tell other thing. Egyptians were not arab, neither black. Egyptians were a race, like the berberes are. It all ended when arabs reached Egypt and they mixed. Egypt had more than 40 tribes, yes tribes people! There is even a tribe with blue eyes, and yeah it’s wrong to portray this people with white actors etc, but let me tell you something, Cleopatra was not Egyptian, hell no, she came from the greeks there should be a little more whiter than the rest of the court/husband.

Just go read a book or be someone in this society. Don’t believe in such things like Tumblr SWJ

Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.

look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon

And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.

And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

So metal

Finding a vegan dog bone is proving difficult -_-

Because dogs are carnivores, with identical digestive systems to wolves.  There is no such thing as “vegan bone.”

Hint: plants don’t have bones.

god fucking damnit stop feeding your dog fucking garbage or get a fucking rabbit if you must have a ~vegan pet~

fucks sake

lmao vegan dog bone

A stick. The item you’re searching for is a stick.

bolding above comment because I laughed right the fuck out loud

I once met a vegan dog. It was unhealthiest looking animal I have ever seen.

Abusing/neglecting your dog because you’re scared of hurting animals. Oh the irony.

Buy a ogddamn fish or a rabbit or something. Not a carnivorous pet
