Holy fuck. I never really understood how they caught birds before, I assumed they had to sneak up on them.
How was this even caught on camera?
are you kidding me?!?!? ok that’s like 4 or 5 feet in the air and one fLUID motion of jump, catch, put in mouth, and land gracefully ready for the game-winning interview. killin em cat you be killin em.
The scaly foot gastropod is probably the worst snail name ever invented. Especially for one of the most incredible organisms on the planet. How many creatures can you name that have an iron shell? None. No creature can grow a metal sheath around itself—except Scaly G. Living nearly 2,400 meters (8,000 ft) below the ocean’s surface, near hydrothermal vents, the scaly foot gastropod incorporates the heavy metals floating in its habitat into its shell.
this is the most metal thing I’ve ever seen
The Greens get painted as economic fringe dwellers but they have gone into the last two elections with:
1) Fully costed policies (which is more than what Labor and the Coalition claim)
2) An understanding that debt is not bad if your investing in the future. Businesses take on debt to increase productive capacity, the principle is no different for governments if the debt is an investment in our future (eg roads).
3) An understanding that you can’t keep spending and still have government programs that most Australians expect (higher education, a social security net etc) without raising taxes
4) The environment is integral to economic development (See my post discussing this).
Research beyond the catchy one liners before writing off the Greens as bad for the economy.
