    And there I was… bracing myself for another screamer.

    Next up, John trims his toenails.

    It takes a lot of gull to post a video like this….(rimshot)

  5. Mr Diesel says:

    Yep, that’s Seattle.

  6. bobbo, who only falls for 90% of the tricks says:

    Its not raining.

  7. Mark says:

    Thanks for… nothing…

  8. noname says:

    So…

    It’s a slow news day in DU world? Nothing significant happening or of interest in the digital world? How could that be?

    Back in the good ole days of DU, when it had a pulse; someone certainly would have posted something about Aaron Swartz?

    What’s happening, DU mandating Cranky Geeks take Prozac suppositories to keep the public from railing against the praetorian establishment?

    Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can’t take it, and my heart is just going to cave in.

    If you are a birdwatcher, this is entertaining. Here, the birds are not afraid of humans at all. In an outdoor restaurant, I have had a bird land on the table, walk up close and watch to see if I would feed it. Birds are great fun to watch.

    • on the ferries the birds can be fed by hand…you hold up a cracker into the air and they will fly in one at a time and grab the crackers. It’s quite amusing. Unfortunately you accidentally get bit a lot although it’s not that they can break skin. Try it….usually works best on the aft.

        I bet the deck hands love it as well.

      • McCullough says:

        And there’s always the clown who tosses up the occasional Alka-Seltzer.

        Bird drops like a rock.

    Did you know about the word?

  12. DrT says:

    And they’re telling us there is no use for assault rifles?

  13. ± says:

     

    The bird is a widow.
     

  14. GregAllen says:

    I’m from that area, and yes, it’s kinda true.

    I’ve spend plenty of time looking at seagulls, especially on the ferry, where that was taken.

  15. Chris Mac says:

    40 round clip should do the trick.

  16. msbpodcast says:

    That reminded me of taking the ferry in the ‘nineties from Victoria to Port Angeles to visit my late friend Mark. (Mark Harris was a great Smalltalk programmer. But he got plenty old and eventually prostate cancer got him…)

    Living by the water has a completely different pace to life compared to the hustle and bustle of NYC.

  17. Alan says:

    Whoa, this video’s too much for me. Time for bed.

  18. BubbaMustafa says:

    even the birds are fat in seattle.

    (love the town!!)

  19. michael says:

    I may just be jaded by having seen this exact view a dozen times, but I never considered that it might be internet-worthy

  20. AndyWas says:

    Can’t wait for part 2 (out of many I hope). I am excited! Yay!

      As soon as he finds another bird fluttering along that will give him the time of day and accept him ….
