Pigeon

I always laugh at how people flip out and dodge like crazy when a pigeon flies straight up in their face. Then, of course, karma brings it right back round to me….

ahh! stupid pigeon with your stupid involuntary jerky head movements. coming from the stupid human with involuntary arm swinging. cameos: ford aerostar, toyota mr2, ultra car

Just to clear things up, some birds like to keep their heads still. So when they walk, their heads appear to be going back and forth relative to their bodies, but actually, their heads are just going from spot to spot, perfectly stationary each time. So, when you see a jerky head on a bird, it’s not stupid, it’s actually some pretty mad body part isolation skill. It’s what people who dance the robot strive for.

  1. Interesting, isolation as a skill to strive for in daily work, like a finely tuned machine. Thanks for the observation.
