OT: Birds Aren't Real

dbCooperdbCooper Posts: 1,484

I'm not on "social media", a downside to that is missing some really cool stuff.  For example, I've been totally ignorant of this movement until now.  It gives me faith that "The Kids Are Still Alright"!  Bought a hat and shirt from them to show support.

  • I’m not sure whether to laugh or cringe in response to this one.  And yes I appreciate that it’s meant as satire.

    Is this why birds land on power lines? To recharge their batteries?

  • I am also off the social media but have 2 kids. I am well-versed in the “birds aren’t real” game. Funny stuff.

    I'm in!  For some reason my background check took extra time.  Keeping out double-agents and other undesirables is of importance. Initial assignment is on food/beverage team for Activist Events.

    Well, duh.  You jumped out of an airplane and instead of parachuting down to a specific area, you flew to a totally unrelated location.

    Too funny, I thought about this thread just the other day, because there is a recent version of The Daily (new york times) podcast that covered the movement.  Worth checking out.

    If Birds are not real, then where do our beloved Green Eggs come from?
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Proud and vocal Vegan.  I don't see why an animal should lose their life, just so you can have a snack.

    In a country such as this, where there are fruits, grains, and nuts in abundance, how can one think that he must eat the flesh of dead animals?

    Windshields are not real.  You cannot even see them.

    Is the ‘Birds Aren’t Real’ movement trying to steal the rainbow from its current owners?  This could get ugly!

    There's probably enough saltpeter (potassium nitrate) on that car to supply a small neighborhood war.

    I would like to agree with your comment here, but I don’t want to like it!

    @fishlessman if it makes you feel better I watched a blue heron gracefully land on a high tension power line.
