Confidence

I was turning into the alley behind IHOP today and noticed three birds picking at a piece of bread by the side, next to the fence for my parking lot. As my car, which is probably more than 10000 times the size of these birds put together, rolls within two feet of them, they kind of look up and eye me, then resume their pecking. I was thinking, "Wow, those birds are pretty confident." That's the clearest form of wild animal fearlessness that I've seen in quite a while. Them's city birds!

new car?

Dang...you must have gotten a new car! If a bird is about 6 inches by 6 inches, then their mass is 36 square inches, which means that 10,000 times that is 36,000 square feet, which is approximately 3 times the size of a 4 bedroom house. That's one large vehicle! (Yeah, I'm bored at work, can you tell?)
