so you guys may have seen this bird already, but I'm sure it's new for somebody. I know I've never seen it before today. Ha ha ha, it looks so fake but it's real.

Looks like a Tawny-Frog Mouth Owl to me.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

They're related, Sir Hat. These are like South American frogmouths, which are found in Asia/Australia.

That it does. Saw one only last night looking at me from the bush outside my house.  Tame ones you can pat like a dog.

It's really quite cute. It looks kind of permanently surprised.

it's both creepy and cute at the same time, i quite like it :)

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish... Soldiers don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think or what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder... Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts.  You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts.
