  1. Swallows Opening Doors Now, Birdemic Is Upon Us

    If they learn to use a hotel key card we are done for.

    A group of swallows was already living in this parking garage in Victoria, Canada, when automatic doors were installed, but judging from Grant Hughes' footage the birds adapted to the automatic sensors remarkably fast. It's always sad to see animals cope with loss of their environment, but damn, these little guys sure showed us!

  2. Michael Bay Probably Should Never Give Anyone the “Sex Talk” and Here’s Why [Video]

  3. T-Rex Didn’t Even Need Its Stupid Baby Arms

    Except maybe to flip haters the bird.

  4. Testosterone in Part of a Bird’s Brain Makes Them Sing More, but Doesn’t Help Them Mate Successfully

    It basically turns them into guys who hit on everyone with cheesy pickup lines.

    Guys, it's a lake. It's not Medusa.

    Sometimes the media does this thing where it takes something incredibly fascinating and turns into a crappy game of telephone, and at the end everybody believes something completely fake.

  8. Watch a Parakeet Trying to Say “Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition” [VIDEO]

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    Meet Disco. Disco has a pretty big vocabulary for a parakeet. "Hamburger" is among the words he can say. So is "cheeseburger." Dirty Dancing quotes? Disco's on that.
