    Really?

    What is strange, people who think this is strange!

    Starlings do this routinely the world over.

    McCullough you need to log off and get outside sometimes. It’s amazing what nature routinely has to show.

    How do you connect this with Putin, psychedelic mushrooms?

  2. McCullough says:

    Har, I need to get outside? OK, lad.

    • noname says:

      Your right, obviously you’re going out and licking too many psychedelic mushrooms!

      Maybe instead you should just stay in, but off the computer!

      Whatever it takes to improve DU blog topic quality!

    Are you sure that’s Putin?! I’m seeing the dude from the Wizard of Oz.

    Are you sure this isn’t some CG trickery?! Seems any fool these days will make a dishonest video just to try and get it to go “viral” — Google (YouTube) even PAYS these fools, you know.

    … You sure this isn’t just more CLICK BAIT?!

    I’m done.

    “If there’s one thing you want to avoid in life, it’s getting a dying pigeon in the face. So you might want to avoid Moscow. The city’s pigeons are dying en masse, but first they start flying around like the brainless living dead. And since they don’t much care where they’re going, they’re flying straight into people’s faces. And then — thwack! — falling to the ground.”

    Now they are becoming faces.

    Alpha male Trump followed by Alpha male Putin. That’s a pattern, next is Alpha Hilla the Hun.

    The Ball-Stick-Bird phonic reading system, developed by psychologist Dr. Renée Fuller, derives its name from the way it teaches the alphabet. With Balls (circles), Sticks (lines), and Birds (angles), the student can make all the letters of the alphabet. But story reading does not wait for alphabet mastery. Already with the presentation of the fourth letter the hilarious adventures of Vad of Mars begin. Vad

    These adventures package principles from neuroscience and child psychology thereby greatly increasing learning ease, speed, and reading pleasure. Instead of senseless drill, the repeated phonic lessons are immediately utilized in another goofy science fiction adventure.

    “When the Kubinka park is functioning at full capacity it will be able to host tens of thousands of visitors per day. There will be battle reconstructions of some of the most famous victories in Russian and Soviet history, and regular displays of military hardware and training opportunities.

    Hotels and entertainment centres will be opened on the grounds, which should allow families to visit for several days and make a holiday of it, according to promotional literature distributed at the launch. The park is due to be fully completed in 2017, and will cost the defence ministry 20 billion roubles (£236m), according to the Kommersant newspaper. Visitors will be able to ride tanks, shoot guns and play extreme sports.”

      ohh, bother.

    • Sentry says:

      Wish this was a joke. The Russians think were soft. Their right. A nation of passive youth who have become a bunch of X Box playing blimped out zombies. They are preparing their citizins and youth for war while Americans are obsessed with celebrity culture and endless distractions. Nothing like a world war to get Americans focused again!
