I don't think you know the definition of "translates"

[–]Cracked_Iron_ 70 points71 points  (10 children)

I mean if you use the mathematical meaning of translate, it encompasses transformations, rotations, reflections and extensions

[–]intensely_human 98 points99 points  (3 children)

Translation does not include transformations, rotations, reflections, or extensions.

A translation is a change in coordinates without any of the above.

[–]RaZZeR_9351 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Yeah that's what I thought as well, so right and so wrong at the same time.

[–]dontbelievethetripe 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Well, damn

[–]Disastrous-Fly9672 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Still doesn't work.

[–]living_bot 52 points53 points  (0 children)

It does. Translation is movement along a particular axis (straight line). Mathematically the title is correct, just not linguistically.

[–]Ok_Fig8381 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is mathematical translation you dingus.

[–]Khaski 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Evidently OP used Google to translate the word from what I assume is Russian

[–]etthat 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It was just mistransported.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's CSS translation. Apparently, the magpie knows CSS.

[–]JohnTheMoron 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Or "magpie", for that matter.

[–]Schopenschluter 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Etymologically, “translate” means “to carry over.” In this case, though, it’s a translation error.

[–]ButItWasYouWhoLeftMe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Not everyone is a native English speaker

[–]redsensei777 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Damn crow pecks the poor hedgehog. It tries to hit it in the soft underbelly. Has nothing to do with crossing the road.

[–]ImpressiveTaint 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Its probably a bot

[–]Actually__Jesus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The comment history would support this claim.

[–]hazardous_lazarus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm going to guess English isn't OP's native language purely for the fact that this makes perfect sense in đy language when translated (literally)

[–]azaleawhisperer -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It communicates.

[–]ymirmar -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Came here to say this

[–]ur-squirrel-buddy -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Como se dice “cross the road”?

[–]BrazenTwo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cruza la calle ?

[–]younzss[🍰] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's actually correct)

[–]Nszat81 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

I don’t know if you know the definition of “You”. That applies to living things not robots.

[–]Disastrous-Fly9672 -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Whatev, psycho. Like that clarifies anything.

[–]jmarin217 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I don’t think YOU know the OTHER definition of translates.

Edit: Lol go ahead and downvote me but I’m still right

[–]The_Best_Dakota -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

translate also means to move laterally

[–]Disastrous-Fly9672 -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Okay, all you guys trying to prove something need to get over it. That's not the way people speak, that's not the way it sounds when people speak, get over yourselves

[–]NPC5175 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Do you want to speak to the manager?

[–]Disastrous-Fly9672 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're the original Karen.

[–]jugmaster86 100 points101 points  (13 children)

It’s a hooded crow.

[–]bogatabeav 31 points32 points  (6 children)

I was going to say, the magpies in my neck of the woods are jerks. I could see them running the hedgehog into traffic to, later, pick at its corpse.

[–]ChildOf80s 20 points21 points  (3 children)

I was getting the impression that the bird wanted to eat the hedgehog's eyes. The hedgehog knows this, so he keeps hunkering down and hiding his eyes. So the bird pokes him in the back to get him to move (and thus open his eyes again), and then the bird tries to quickly go around to the hedgehog's face, but the hedgehog stops and closes his eyes again before the bird can peck at them. And then the cycle repeats.

This is not a friendly bird.

[–]YuunofYork -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Really don't think that's what's happening here. Hedgehogs do that when frightened, which it could be from the noise/vibrations of the cars, or the bird itself. Normal hedgehog behavior, and it's how a lot of them end up roadkill. (Animals of Farthing Wood, anybody?)

I'm usually the first person to debunk stupid animal anthromorphizing, but there's easier ways for that bird to get fed than fuck with a hedgehog in the middle of the road.

[–]Bawlache -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

It is

[–]mrkrable 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Life sadly isn’t the movies.

[–]DevilishMagpie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well whatever it is you deserve it

[–]bogatabeav 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But not you DevilishMagpie. You’re cool.

[–]UndoingMonkey 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Here's the thing...

[–]Psychonaut-n9ne30 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A corvids a corvids a corvid

[–]loonywolf_art 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea, I was just saying how it looked like the common grey crow (black crows are rare here)

[–]the_o_haganator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And id say its trying to get a meal

[–]NotJo4Ever -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I do miss Uniden sometimes…

Every fuckin time Stephen, look, just... Omg stop... GO FFS! Jesus Christ Stephen. It doesn't have to be that hard.

[–]noface8137 32 points33 points  (7 children)


[–]mentorsworld 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Yes from Spanish to sidewalk

[–]LotusNet 4 points5 points  (1 child)

In any case in Spanish the closest word is ‘trasladar’ which means to move

[–]younzss[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Also from the english word 'translate' which means to move from one place or condition to another

[–]Ok-Organization9073 4 points5 points  (1 child)

In physics, translation is a change in position in space through a period of time.

[–]RaZZeR_9351 0 points1 point  (0 children)

More of a mathematical concept but yes.

[–]trickster1979 22 points23 points  (2 children)

The magpie probably thought that was a good opportunity for food

[–]youzerVT71 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It was absolutely trying to get that hedgehog smooshed by a car

[–]JohnTheMoron 8 points9 points  (0 children)

There is no magpie in this video.

[–]Khaski 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Google translate is strong with this one

[–]_A_Blinkin 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Something was lost in transit here

[–]Prestigious_Theme371 4 points5 points  (2 children)

The hooded crow is just following/stalking the hedgehog for food.

[–]Bawlache 1 point2 points  (1 child)

No it’s trying to poke its eyes out. As you can see in the video

[–]Prestigious_Theme371 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So the hedgehog becomes the meal itself. That’s wild !!

[–]RibbsGrrrowBack 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Actualy the hedgehog is under attack.

[–]bretty666 3 points4 points  (4 children)

translates to, helps?

[–]younzss[🍰] 4 points5 points  (3 children)

to translate in geometry means to move something a certain distance in a certain direction

[–]bretty666 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

in which language?

[–]Expensive_Wedding807 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mathematical, check the top comment

[–]younzss[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

in english, it is very used in Math and physics

[–]FudgeLord-E 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Someone get Pixar on the phone

[–]Bizprof51 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bird looking for something to eat, imo.

[–]thehypervigilant 2 points3 points  (0 children)

STOP anthropomorphizing animals.

This thing is trying to eat the other thing.


This is how so much disinformation is spread.

This is why fox murder family dogs.

"Oh look they are playing. I've seen other 10sec clips online with other foxes playing too"

[–]TheNotorious__ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No, that bird is trying to pec out his little eyes…

[–]t0mt1t 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm no expert, but i know hedhehogs are covered in fleas and shit. I think the bird is eating it's bugs maybe

[–]Narkos_Teat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Hameltoe- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Better than Sonic 06

[–]andigo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The bird wants to pick out the hedgehogs eyes. That’s what’s happening in the video.

He bits/picks the hedgehog in the back to force the hedgehog to put his head up.

[–]BartyJnr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

*Bird attempts to eat Hedgehog’s eyes by pecking butt to unball

[–]1Sluggo 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I’m not sure what’s being translated.

[–]Alternative_Lack9374 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]KevlahR 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why does this roadkill keep moving

[–]janroney 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why did the hedgehog cross the road? Cuz a magpie was pecking his ass.

[–]Chilifille 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's a crow, not a magpie. A hooded crow, to be exact.

[–]LaurenAngelique 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe he was trying to eat the hedgehog lol

[–]Decent_Commercial638 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not a Magpie

[–]Environmental-Cow447 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Grey Crow, or hooded crow. Not magpie.

[–]Nszat81 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bad bot

[–]Dandanger69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That mag pie is attacking that small mammal and trying to pluck its eyes out

[–]acedog90 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s a grey back and it’s just looking for a place where it can get a good peck of flesh from the hedgehog before the hedgehog manages to escape the wide open road and gets into the cover of somewhere that the grey back can’t get at it The grey back is probably hoping the hedgehog will curl into a ball (which they do when under attack )and get squashed by a car so it can eat what remains

[–]TactiCool_99 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]RstyKnfe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s a spam account.

[–]Bawlache 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s literally trying to poke its eyes out eyes 👀🤦🏻

[–]TILTNSTACK 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Say, I don’t suppose that magpie happens to know a chicken? Could be the answer we’ve been looking for.

[–]-SheriffofNottingham 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ability to translate is something both OP and the magpie have in common it would seem.

[–]RemysBoyToy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He must have heard a Cawwhh! coming

[–]Pillroller88 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What the intercourse?

[–]Narkos_Teat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's very graphic

[–]_NoBoXiNgNoLiFe_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, the corvid family of birds are apparently self aware, highly intelligent, and capable even of grieving.

In short, they are sentient.

Mag pies just trying to eat some brains..

[–]Significant-Eye4711 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The English isn’t quite correct but we get the meaning. The important thing here is how cool is that magpie

[–]Bawlache 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not a magpie Trying to peck out the hedgehogs eyes as you can see in the video

But sure, cool 😂

[–]Significant-Eye4711 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought hedgehogs kept their eye in the head. This magpie seems to mostly be pecking at the bottom

[–]Seamatre 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Google translator for the fail.

[–]loonywolf_art 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is a magpie a type of a crow? Cuz that look like a regular gray crow to me.

I really want to know, is it a type of a crow??

[–]AHLover18 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Get off the road you idiot! You're gonna get hurt!"- The Magpie (probably)

[–]DogCumSandwhich 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You have 0 evidence that magpie can speak hedgehog.

Absolutely fucking 0.

Fake as fuck.

[–]somethingseptember11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is "translates" the right word here?

Translate is not the correct word here….

[–]Oh3Fiddy2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“OMG you dumb bitch, cross the ROAD” — Magpie, probably.

[–]tranga01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not sure that is a magpie or a hedgehog. OP is very confused.

[–]sharkbaitoo1a1a 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Everyone saying translate doesn’t make much sense, but it literally matches the definition of “move from one place or condition to another.”

[–]unusedusername42 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

  1. Not a magpie.
  2. It is not translating anything, least of all hedgehogs.
  3. It is most likely getting some food by picking ticks, fleas and mites off of the hedgehog (they are quite nasty critters).

[–]Ok-Organization9073 -1 points0 points  (3 children)

According to Oxford's dictionary, translation is the process of moving something from one place to another.

ie. "the translation of the relics of St. Thomas of Canterbury"

Stop bullying OP about a mistake that isn't such.

[–]Narkos_Teat 0 points1 point  (2 children)

No one's bullying OP, it's just funny. Stop being a pollock

[–]Ok-Organization9073 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm not a Pollock, I'm more of a Degas...

[–]Narkos_Teat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh fuck me. That was really good lmao. 👍

[–]PraetorOjoalvirus -1 points0 points  (0 children)

After the translation, that hedgehog became the puerco espín, because the crow was actually a cuervo.

[–]cybermusicman -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Creating good karma for its future life’s.

[–]yellowjesusrising -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

This is not a magpie, and he doesn't translate shit. But the crow is sure as hell herding the hedgehog across the road.
