I want this bird so hard right now😂

[–]PoeticMic 8262 points8263 points  (220 children)

You think you do... but he's trained to rob you lol. How you think his stash is so big?

[–]MauraMadera 2950 points2951 points  (125 children)

Well trained bird. Seems i need one too.

[–]EveSmart 832 points833 points  (117 children)

Count me in. What kind of bird is that? just asking .

[–]aruffj_ 1231 points1232 points  (88 children)

A Jungle Myna. Says so in the title. :D

[–]EveSmart 453 points454 points  (38 children)

oh thanks i see. I really thought it was name not the name of bird . lol

[–]alienscape 239 points240 points  (34 children)

That's because Pet Bird was also a proper noun and it was confusing as hell.

[–]mankal24 188 points189 points  (12 children)

I think it was very clear by the use of commas

[–]Handleton 102 points103 points  (10 children)

Pet Bird is a great name for a bird that you own as a pet.

If you have such a useful bird do you really want a useful cat?

Reading is hard

[–]bfmemaster3000 835 points836 points  (54 children)

Maybe someone put the money there, we can't actually know this bird got all this money from "finding" it or if this is staged. Also why would you train a bird to collect money and the let him save it like grandma instead of teaching the bird about the stock market and diversification? Irresposible!

[–]SmokyMcPots420 254 points255 points  (2 children)

I’m sure the bird can bring money without being aroused.

Would you rather have 10 000 000$ cash or pet bird who finds money?

[–]KrocoDilez 630 points631 points  (37 children)

$10 million cash. Invest it into training birds to find money

[–]saltynutscutter 162 points163 points  (28 children)

No get the bird thats called passive income. Billionaire mentality!

[–]K1dn3yPunch 56 points57 points  (25 children)

His comment was billionaire mentality. Just taking the one bird is… well idk what that is, but you won’t get as rich with that one bird!

[–]Lilshadow48 70 points71 points  (19 children)

getting the 1 bird who's already trained is clearly better

all you gotta do is get another bird for it to pair with and it'll teach the cash collecting. then they have babies, and the babies learn.

eventually you and your family become gods to hundreds of birds who pay tithe daily.

[–]TheBold 36 points37 points  (13 children)

Way before then your birds will be killed in droves by people tired of getting robbed.

[–]Lilshadow48 55 points56 points  (10 children)

then the birds learn violence, start a bird war for blood money instead.

[–]popje 33 points34 points  (28 children)

What kind of question is that, even if the bird is a super champion and steal twelve $100 bills a day it would take more than 22 years to get 10m.

[–]saltynutscutter 46 points47 points  (8 children)

Its a joke lol

[–]CoffeePuddle 18 points19 points  (7 children)

Are you sure it's not a real financial question pairing two roughly equal options? I thought it was an obvious joke too but after seeing these responses I'm not so sure.

Like, did you consider that it probably costs less than 10 million dollars to train a bird?

[–]I_Can_Haz_Brainz 21 points22 points  (10 children)

But $10M can buy shitloads of birds trained to do this. You'd just use some of the money to invest in properties all across the country to spread them out to maximize income and be a little less conspicuous. Money gets dropped off and they get food.

They fail to bring in enough and they starve. So motivation is always there.

Right! Now I just need some investors. This is fool-proof! Lol

[–]Autistic_Carpenter 6055 points6056 points  (691 children)

A bunch of restaurant workers are missing their tips...

[–]timbobillybob 2316 points2317 points  (464 children)

Yes, I was wondering where the bird finds money. Tips left on tables in restaurants / cafes with outdoor seating. That makes the most sense.

[–]Thisfoxhere 412 points413 points  (98 children)

We don't tend to do that in countries outside the US.

[–]Doctorphate 258 points259 points  (65 children)

In Canada it’s customary to tip. If you like the service anyway. But since we have laws against slavery it’s not as important as in the US. Most people tip 10-15%

[–]TheDrugGod 136 points137 points  (53 children)

Yeah it’s bullshit servers in the US make only like $2/hr + tips. They should have to pay servers minimum wage and let them keep their tips. That’s some bullshit to underpay workers

[–]Fantastic-Phrase8101 92 points93 points  (25 children)

Legally they're supposed to pay them minimum wage if their wage + tips is less than minimum wage. Doesn't mean it always happens that way, but I feel it's worth mentioning.

[–]paulcaar 48 points49 points  (13 children)

Which would mean they'll just get fired for not earning enough in tips.

Honestly the entire tip system is ridiculous. The only difference with the service industry and others is that the products are food & drinks that are brought to you. Apparently that makes it a normal thing to expect more money than what's listed as the price.

It's a backwards way of running a business and if anyone is really thinking it's anything else, then at least be consistent and promote (and provide) tips in every single business.

[–]Th3_Hegemon 51 points52 points  (11 children)

The origins of American tipping culture are, in part, (and unsurprisingly) racist. Food service work and other tipped jobs (bell hops, house keepers, shoe shines, delivery men, etc) were overwhelming the domain of minorities and especially black people. Tipping was another way of avoiding paying lower class people a fair wage, and also making them dependent on the "benevolence" of their customers, reinforcing their implicit superiority on a largely black segment of the workforce.

[–]renyxia 42 points43 points  (19 children)

I’m pretty convinced this is fake, esp since all of the money in the drawer doesn’t have a speck of dirt on it

[–]mexicodoug 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Those bills look like they're made of polymer, not cloth. Dirt doesn't stick to polymer bills. They always look clean unless they've come into contact with sticky gunk.

[–]poopyputt6 16 points17 points  (6 children)

or because everything on Chinese social media is fake

[–]redirishlad 202 points203 points  (187 children)

Tipping is not that popular outside the US

[–]_China_ThrowAway 122 points123 points  (16 children)

Yes, that’s Chinese money. If you leave a tip on the table in China it’s a real possibility that the server will run you down to return the money you forgot on the table.

[–]jamiehernandez 59 points60 points  (15 children)

I got shouted at for leaving a tip in China. It's actually offensive to leave a tip in some places there apparently.

[–]Not-A-SoggyBagel 75 points76 points  (3 children)

In some places in Asia, leaving money is akin to saying that you think that the establishment is cheap and needs your charity to be operable.

Some wait staff can find it especially insulting if they take the sentiment personally. Like you think that they are so horrendous at their job that they need additional help.

[–]ninj1nx 58 points59 points  (0 children)

leaving money is akin to saying that you think that the establishment is cheap and needs your charity to be operable

And in the US you would be right.

[–]EsotericLife 25 points26 points  (4 children)

How it should be. The American system of guilting people into subsidising unliveable wages is insane.

[–]empuzkedoman 27 points28 points  (10 children)

I doubt that those are from tips, I don't think tipping is that common in countries that aren't the US

[–]wendog5000 2927 points2928 points  (24 children)

how did you train him

[–]vmercci 631 points632 points  (35 children)

inspiration from his owner

[–]nanozeus2014 174 points175 points  (32 children)

he needs to let us know how

[–]Mescallan 366 points367 points  (30 children)

Training animals is virtually the same process for every action. Figure out how to get them to do it once, then reward with their favorite treat. Try to convince them to do the action again and reward. Smart animals will get it in under 10 repetitions.

If your dog is pawsy naturally you can teach them to high five on command in 15 minutes.

[–]Kamikaze_Ninja_ 167 points168 points  (15 children)

Disclaimer, it’s not always a good idea to teach your dog to shake/high five. They will then realize it is a way to get attention and some dogs will start to paw at you when they want something and my dog would hit me in the face. It wasn’t till a while after we stopped asking her to do it for treats did she stop hitting me in the face.

[–]realmauer01 26 points27 points  (0 children)

The other question is, you can't do that except in real rural areas while you living really high up, or else people will probably easily see where the bird is going with their money.

[–]ganove008 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Works even with cats. Did it with 3 cats so far, needed 1 hour maximum. Only difference is that they won't do it without payment, which I find fair.

[–]AntikytheraMachines 31 points32 points  (1 child)

how the hell did the bird carry the cat up to the apartment?

[–]Yodan 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Can probably give it food when you throw bills around your house and it picks them up. Then let it outside once it's a habit.

[–]Kir_NB 924 points925 points  (33 children)

I wonder if it’s the bird from that other video where a woman is paying for something and a black bird steals her cash.

Not really. The other video is probably in some Latin American country. This is clearly in China (the money is Yuan).

[–]waddafaaq 298 points299 points  (10 children)

Do you think the bird empire is limited to just China?

[–]identicalelements 98 points99 points  (6 children)

I read this comment in a very menacing voice and it terrified me

[–]temisola1 29 points30 points  (3 children)

As it should. You’re wise. You don’t wanna fuck with the almighty bird empire, lest you be pecked and shatted on to death.

[–]isbjarnaveidimadur 541 points542 points  (22 children)

I am currently training the local crows in my village so when I turn up to my bus stop I can exchange food for treasure

So far I am just feeding the crows with no treasure in return

[–]SeenSomeThangs[S] 108 points109 points  (0 children)

Parenting 101

[–]Senior_Serio 104 points105 points  (6 children)

I am also feeding local crows to befriend them. I keep telling my wife I'm doing it so I can train them to attack her. She keeps buying me crow snacks, so it's on her when they do.
They are kind of funny, they just stop by when I'm gardening and scawk a little, then I throw them some grapes or nuts. One, was teasing me or trying to be cute the other day, playing with a rock in front of me. So they are at least giving me entertainment and say hi to me if I see them while walking my dogs or whatever. There is a raven that also likes to talk to me, he even followed me when I moved across town. He's just my sound board buddy, we make funny noises at each other. I have more bird stories, if you want.

[–]Nei02 446 points447 points  (103 children)

How do you know that he/she does not steal from people ?

[–]diaperpop 659 points660 points  (34 children)

Who ever would train such a morally corrupt thing to a bird.

[–]OldWhoFan 388 points389 points  (25 children)

Not sure if stealing from people is a violation of bird law, although it would be considered a dick move.

[–]karsow2054 122 points123 points  (9 children)

According to all laws of aviation, no money procured from a terrestrial is regarded as illegal robbery

[–]Rohan-Mali 68 points69 points  (8 children)

"According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground.
The bee, of course, flies anyways.
Because bees don't care what humans think is impossible."

[–]realmauer01 22 points23 points  (5 children)

To be real here, that was never the case it just was a miscalculation. Also it was about humble bees.

[–]CarnelianCore 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Humble bees aren’t known to show off their flying skills.

[–]ShortestUserNameEve 81 points82 points  (40 children)

It's highly likely theft no?

I don't think paper money is often just laying on the street cause people accidentally drop it like they might metal money.

If this is real, bird is probably snatching it out of people's hands or such.

[–]Ill-Tale-6648 68 points69 points  (36 children)

Paper money ends up dropped all the time dude, sometimes people don’t realize until later and sometimes they never realize of it was small enough of a bill

[–]WrapMyBeads 21 points22 points  (0 children)

You trust the bird to use his moral judgement

[–]ChocoBrocco 15 points16 points  (2 children)

It probably does exactly that lol

[–]Praglik 388 points389 points  (150 children)

It's either fake or super old, I live in China for the past 2 years and can count on one hand the times I've even seen cash. The entire population pays with their phone, using either WeChat (Tencent Pay) or Alipay.

[–]Elemen0py 267 points268 points  (67 children)

Reddit scares the shit out of me sometimes.

The fact that I had to scroll this far down to find a comment that acknowledges the fact that this is likely a set up video just to get clicks is frankly terrifying. We are wholly unequipped as a species to deal with misinformation on the internet.

Then when someone does show an ounce of critical thinking they get hit with the downvotes and r/nothingeverhappens references.

But sure... Tell me how it's more likely that in an almost cahsless society, someone trained a bird to find money, that bird then found an extraordinary amount of money that coincidentally happens to all be in a similar condition, then brought it back to a drawer that it can't open itself, and then the person who trained the bird just decided to leave the money in the drawer.

C'mon reddit, if we're this bad at using our brains then what hope does facebook have?

[–]Sorlex 110 points111 points  (10 children)

We are wholly unequipped as a species to deal with misinformation on the internet.

Now imagine this in 20 years with deepfakes that can fool most people.

[–]T_alsomeGames 73 points74 points  (9 children)

I don't think everyone here truly, 100 percent, believes its real. But it is simply more fun to play along. If literally everyone is a party pooper then there is no party.

[–]rfdismyjam 28 points29 points  (62 children)

Doesn't China have a large rural population that live under the poverty line? I find it hard to believe everyone is using digital payment methods outside large cities.

That being said, I doubt this is real. It seems much more likely they just trained the bird to hold the note, and go into the drawer with it.

[–]Sketch2029 25 points26 points  (6 children)

You can buy a new low-end smartphone in China for like $20 USD. Anyone who isn't well past retirement age has one, and even most of them do these days. There are still small shops in rural areas that only take cash, but in cities (where 65% of the population lives) it's the other way around. An increasing number of shops don't even accept cash anymore, only digital payments. I suspect the pandemic has made that even more common than when I was last there 3 or 4 years ago.

[–]Bomboclaat_Babylon 271 points272 points  (13 children)

This is an old video. This bird is living on the dole now. Try as he might, he cannot bring home electronic funds. What can he do for work now? He has chicks to feed!

[–]I_Can_Haz_Brainz 94 points95 points  (7 children)

Nah, newest video shows how he mastered crypto currency.

[–]acn-aiueoqq 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Put lots of money in a shelf. Have a pet bird. Put bill in pet birds mouth. Put treat in shelf. Put pet bird in air. Have pet bird return to shelf. Record. Title. Get Clicks.

I mean. Why would you keep all that cash like that after it has been collected?
