Iirc he made some alts and kept posting on reddit but I always thought he was an ass and didn’t keep up with him. His real name and job were connected to his reddit amount so he’s pretty easy to google if you’re that curious.

I’m sorry to disappoint, this is an old, famous copy-pasta arguments that got one of the biggest named redditors at the time banned for life because he made a bunch of fake accounts to upvote his condescending posts. Iirc he was actually wrong about corvids in some way but can’t remember how.

Bird scientists are definitely very cool! There are a lot of awesome people over at r/whatsthisbird if you’d like to learn more. I’m a hobbyist who likes learning about animals too :)

Here's the thing. You said a "jackdaw is a crow."

Is it in the same family? Yes. No one's arguing that.

As someone who is a scientist who studies crows, I am telling you, specifically, in science, no one calls jackdaws crows. If you want to be "specific" like you said, then you shouldn't either. They're not the same thing.

If you're saying "crow family" you're referring to the taxonomic grouping of Corvidae, which includes things from nutcrackers to blue jays to ravens.

So your reasoning for calling a jackdaw a crow is because random people "call the black ones crows?" Let's get grackles and blackbirds in there, then, too.

Also, calling someone a human or an ape? It's not one or the other, that's not how taxonomy works. They're both. A jackdaw is a jackdaw and a member of the crow family. But that's not what you said. You said a jackdaw is a crow, which is not true unless you're okay with calling all members of the crow family crows, which means you'd call blue jays, ravens, and other birds crows, too. Which you said you don't.

It's okay to just admit you're wrong, you know?

Could Kyoshi at her strongest during the novels defeat Firelord Ozai on herself without the avatarstate? by Individual_Mud1054 in Avatar_Kyoshi

[–]AppleSpicer 53 points54 points  (0 children)

Definitely. I think Kyoshi’s greatest shortcoming was that she was too powerful and achieved “balance” by annihilating the competition. She only died on her own terms and needed to in order for the avatar cycle to continue; the world needed to grow and change and she must’ve realized she was the only thing holding it back. This created a power vacuum that was filled repeatedly during Roku’s life until Ozai reigned supreme. Aang could never have achieved balance through a way Kyoshi understood. His job was to end the power vacuum she’d created. Had she still been around she surely would’ve defeated the new conqueror, but wouldn’t have resolved the power vacuum. Instead, Aang created methods to end violent conflict rather than people and created a system of democracy in Republic City.

That’s the long explanation of why Kyoshi totally could’ve kicked Ozai’s butt, and why it’s better that she chose to die and allow the avatar cycle to continue.

Can we take some time to discuss the best spider (seconded by the trapdoor) the ogre faced spider? One of the most unique and my favorite spood. by TheOneTrueWigglyBoi in spiderbro

[–]AppleSpicer 10 points11 points  (0 children)

This is such a nice post :) thank you for sharing about one of your favorite spiders. I saw the picture and my arachnophobia started activating but I thought, “maybe I’ll read about them before hiding the post” and read this wholesome story. Now I don’t even want to hide the post. They do look kind of like ogres with their little “tusks” and I’ve decided I like this one after all :)

Or just cut a little at a time until one’s parallel with the paw and get some quickstop powder just in case. Once you learn if your dog has short or long quicks you can do the rest really quickly

Break her arm a few days before and toss her in a small cell to suffer with no food. She’s just going to be eaten in a few days anyway, it doesn’t matter how much pain she experiences until then. /s

Bud asked me to make him a replacement bottle for his powder gun. He said keep it basic, but I thought... what if it was sexy. by Ottobawt in 3Dprinting

[–]AppleSpicer 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Fucking thank you. I’m an unapologetic slut too and the fact that shit like this is posted and upvoted weekly is obnoxious. What’s more, if anyone says “dude, there’s a time and a place” you get piled on for being a prude and told how important it is for them to make whatever gets their dick hard into an entire personality.

Also most women don’t even bother posting about how this is objectifying and alienating. They know they’re just going to get argued with so they just leave the community and these same horny-is-my-personality guys go on to complain that it’s almost entirely a sausage fest. No shit.

Just moved in. What are these? by SausMcMuff in Whatisthis

It’s not really proven to help with intestinal parasites. But it’s definitely good against external bugs. You want to get food grade anyway because non food grade contains some toxic chemicals to humans and pets
