Birds are magnificent and they can FLY and their colorings come from structural coloration and everything about them is amazing. Also they’re dinosaurs. <3
THE DINOSAUR THING ALWAYS GETS TO ME. they’re modern day dinosaurs!!! smaller and prettier dinosaurs. but no less hardcore and SMARTER. how can anything else beat it i don’t understand. I REPEAT. PRETTIER AND SMALLER DINOSAURS.
and their problem solving skills!!! (i recently read an article about how ravens were just as smart as apes. i mean, yeah, they were already “feathered apes” but they were considered to be almost as smart) they’re great at using tools too and some of them are also able to talk and despite the popular belief they do have some understanding of what they’re saying. some can keep their head at the same place while on air???? how do you even do that how is that possible? i’m just so amazed by them they’re so great and the fact that they exist actually makes me happy. it’s a real source of joy in my life.
i mean seriously. dinosaurs. some of which are living in your cities, pooping on your cars, insulting you with the curse words they’ve been taught only to make kiss sounds after, flying through your windows and wrecking your houses I CAN GO ON FOREVER
I LOVE CROWS. They’re so smart and they’ve been shown to be able to recognize and remember individual human faces and then pass on that knowledge of which specific humans need to be avoided/scolded TO THEIR BABIES. Also populations of crows in different areas utilize different tools/techniques because they can learn from each other WHICH COUNTS AS CULTURE. Also New Caledonian Crows can solve novel, 3-step puzzles that involve retrieving a tool to retrieve a tool to open a box to get food ON THE FIRST TRY. Also they might have theory of mind.
Please watch this video + read this thread. It’ll bring so much happiness into your life. BIRDS ARE SO AMAZING.
But Galadriel, the only woman of the Noldor to stand that day tall and valiant among the contending princes, was eager to be gone.
Nirnaeth Arnoediad ~ The Battle of Unnumbered Tears [F.A. 472]
’(…) Some have said that even then the Eldar might have won the day, had all their hosts proved faithful. For the Orcs wavered, and their onslaught was stayed, and already some were turning to flight. But even as the vanguard of Maedhros came upon the Orcs, Morgoth loosed his last strength, and Angband was emptied. There came wolves, and wolfriders, and there came Balrogs, and dragons, and Glaurung father of dragons. The strength and terror of the Great Worm were now great indeed, and Elves and Men withered before him.’
Then Fëanor laughed as one fey, and he cried…
"What I have left behind I count now no loss; needless baggage on the road it has proved. Let those that cursed my name, curse me still, and whine their way back to the cages of the Valar! Let the ships burn!”
So there in that place which was called Losgar ended the fairest vessels that ever sailed the sea, in a great burning, bright and terrible.
In the Beginning, the Silmarils were created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.
