Are there any birds that eat humans? Where can they be found, and by hat are some things I should know?

Well, not to rain on your parade, but the the first and most important thing you need to know on this subject is that there are no birds that primarily predate on humans. 

We’re very big, very heavy, are very relatively good at defending ourselves, and have a tendency to hang out in groups. Not only that, but we have the audacity to cover most of our vulnerable points with stuff, and we’ve built these extremely non-bird-friendly zones in which we like to live. How unconscionably rude of us, amirite? 

Golden eagles have been recorded taking down sika deer and other medium-sized ungulates, and African crowned eagles have been known to attack children, so there is no question that large birds of prey could kill a human. Carrion birds and scavengers would undoubtedly eat bits off of an already-dead human (sky burials are a good example), but, again, we are not the chosen prey of any extant bird species.

As for extinct birds, even early modern humans were likely preyed upon by strictly non-avian predators. There are Maori oral traditions of the Haast’s Eagle - the females of which could reach up to 15kg (compared to the largest wild birds of prey now at ~9kg) - that state that they “seized and carried off men, women, and children”. However, while they were large enough to hunt their chosen prey, the (also extinct) moa, carrying off adult humans was likely outside of their capabilities

So, tl;dr: humans are really annoying to eat. 0/10, would not recommend.

Nine: Are you grounded? Maybe she sent you to your room. No tv for a week. You should really clean up, there are a lot of trees in your room.

Hoku: My room is way nicer than this place anyway. And if by “grounded” you mean “temporarily banished” then yes. 

Pointers on Writing Concussions

So, I noticed a recent trend in a lot of fanfictions when it comes to concussions in particular. From what I’ve seen, it looks like it’s almost no big deal and they don’t have too many symptoms. They might just stay in bed, be a bit tired and it’s brushed off completely. It’s pretty vague when it comes down to description.

After a hecka lot of research, I’m finding this to be an improper depiction of concussions.

There are some cases where it may be a minor concussion, and this would be okay. In the terms of ‘Miraculous Ladybug’, where we have superheroes flinging themselves around with their heads unprotected, this may not be the case.

Concussions can be caused by car crashes, sudden movements, or hits to the head. Hits to the neck can also cause concussions. They can also develop overtime, and can take months to years to actually heal. Symptoms will not show for a few days, making it hard to diagnose. Fanfiction-wise, I’ve seen characters getting hits far harder than a sudden jerking motion, and would surely cause more damage and trauma to the brain.

Not all concussions will cause fatal symptoms or permenent damage- but with this sort of head impact symptoms can, and will, be more severe and take more than a few days or a week to heal. These types of injuries are not ones to be handled at home, and may need temporary (sometimes immediate) hospitalization.

They can also be pretty dangerous though, and can be accompanied with internal or external bleeding of the head. Some cases have had fractures in the skull as well. Blood clots in the head can also occur, which can result in stroke. Now even more severe symptoms are brought up. These types of strokes can result in blindness even.

The following are a few potential symptoms of concussions:

• Seizures
• Nausea and Vomiting
• Headaches (can be severe)
• Dizziness or Disorientation
• Memory loss
• Confusion
• Loss of coordination
• Ringing in the ears
• Excessive fatigue
• Irritability
• Sensitivity to light
• Mild depression
• Difficulty speaking (slurring words)
• Sensitivity to sound
• Personality changes
• Blurred vision
• Loss of conciousness

Concussions are basically big ol’ hits to the head with lots of different symptoms. A tad more description can certainly help a ton. It can happen with lots of other injuries as well. Getting a good background on the injury you’re working with can help you a bunch.

I hope this helps the next time you have to write your characters ramming their heads into things!

Work is good.

Work is that kind of monotonous printing-press process, right now, and it’s good. It’s good, isn’t it? It’s getting him money. It keeps him busy - keeps him up at 6 AM every morning and until 12 at night - and really, that’s all he could ask for.

Other things? Less good.

The feeling that his one-person apartment was a two in a past life, and that the cupboard in his bedroom used to be full of dresses and sunhats and some colour, and maybe something artsy - not like his monotone business suits and dress pants (and that one old t-shirt from his childhood that reads nice mood, or something).

Work is good for the next few months.

Then, even work begins to feel misplaced. As if for all the daily routines he does he’s still missing 5 hours of something that should have been there next to him to begin with. And, yeah, Kurosaki Ichigo has never been a man of fate (or faith, for that matter). But he did grow up seeing ghosts at 3 AM cowering underneath his bed covers so, yeah, he thinks that he can handle a little bit of…

Déjà vu, he could call it. Yet he has a feeling it’s a little more unavoidable.

(Maybe, a little more catastrophic).


Déjà vu is still the only explanation he has for why he finds comfort in the wooden beams of a bar a few blocks from his workplace.

It’s on one of those days where the rain mixes with the scent of asphalt to create a heady, warding concussion, one of those days where he feels the burden of something inexplicable. (One of those days is becoming most of those days, but he doesn’t want to title the unexplained just yet).

      He breathes.

There is a tingle of embers under his skin as he walks through the doors, so he thinks that, maybe, the downpour has drenched his nerves, too.

(Or rather, until he catches sight of a 4”8 figure of regal lethality, he realises that he has previously had few embers to compare it to).

She starts a wildfire.

      He sighs.

actually i also request akashi with 3a so we have a painful set (AGAIN, IF THE OTHER IS IN THE PICTURE, GOOD)

3A/3B. (LOOKS BACK AT YOU) HERE You have your painful sET!! \(oAo)/!! Neither of them share the pic with the other, BUT i’d like to think these are related,,,,,, somehow,,


its not like i ask a whole fuckin lot for all the free content i post. dont save and reupload my art and dont tag my dave stuff as kin. thats like. literally all i ask. why do people have to look @ those very simple rules and say “how close can i get to breaking this rule while still having plausible deniability in case anyone says anything?”

“I found myself in Wonderland; get back on my feet again.”

You guys, I have some musical auditions coming up, and I have been preparing and working vocally, physically, and mentally for it. This has been a season where I’ve dealt with quite a bit of vocal rejection. That’s not meant to be like “oh poor me, poor me;” but as a singer who’s been trying and trying to make her musical career happen, it can be very disheartening when things don’t work out, especially when you surrounded by family, friends, teachers, professionals and unprofessionals who all have said and continue to say “you have what it takes! You can totally do this! I love your voice! You should sing this or that! They’d pick you up in a heartbeat!” It’s empowering and humbling to hear, but can really be a letdown when nothing happens after you follow other people’s advice in addition to pursuing your advice and heart’s desires. I know that it doesn’t mean I’m a bad singer, it just means the timing is different and I have yet to walk through the correct open door 😊 It’s good to deal with those moments, I know, because they train you and help you prepare for the future. Alas, it can still be difficult sometimes.

This past year, I’ve really been dealing with some insecurity and confidence issues, and I’m trying to overcome those hurdles, because fear does nothing but hold you back from reaching your greatest potential. It’s been frustrating, because I haven’t dealt with this kind of fear since I was 7; a lot of changes have happened, and most of them are good. But with those changes, there have also been new fears triggered that used to never bother me. I guess that’s to be expected when one deals with different levels of chemical and hormonal imbalances.

Therefore, I’m choosing to run head first into my fears and remind myself everyday when I wake up, that God gave me this gift for a reason, and that it will NOT and should NOT go to waste. I will not let it! Screw you fear and insecurities!!!

Anyway, If you guys wouldn’t mind, I would really appreciate any prayers, positive thoughts, and good vibes that you can spare.

I’m auditioning for the role of Mary Poppins in the “Mary Poppins” musical in March, and auditioning at the Palm Beach Opera house in April.

Some of you have known me and followed me for a while, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your guys’ love, support, and encouragement. It really blesses me and brings me peace and inspires my confidence. Thank you to my friends and followers, old and new, for your love. I hope you guys have a wonderfully blessed week, and if you ever need a friend to talk to, to rant to, to encourage you, to pray with you for anything, to comfort you, etc. my blog is ALWAYS open to you guys.

Love you all my darlings 🌹❤️🎶❄

here's some of my reasons to live; soft vibrations of a cat sleeping on my chest. happiness infused conversations with the friend that feels like a lifetime away, and the warmth i felt in my heart when our arms wrapped around each other for the first time. crying in the night - because honestly, it's relaxing and so therapeutic. singing along to soft ballads and insanely fast raps that remind me of one of the best nights of my life. tracing lines between stars, hoping they can see them too.

You know, I came to this blog for rinch but I must say seeing your posts on my dash is so much more than that. There is the quality fic and the adorable gifs but then there is also the text posts that remind me on a daily basis that it's ok to be who i am. It's ok to say fuck the gender binary this shit is not for me. So thank you! Following your blog makes my days a bit better on a regular basis and I appreciate it so much! <3 <3 <3

i… i’m…… sitting here absolutely stunned and crying literal tears you wonderful anon. I don’t even know what to say to something like that. For me this is by far the nicest anon message ever and i have to gather my thoughts a bit to figure out how to reply.

After several hours of trying to gather my thoughts (emphasis on the word ‘trying’ lol) all i can say is you have absolutely no idea how much this message means to me, really! i am so incredibly happy to hear my blog can remind you that it’s ok to be you! (i have tears in my eyes again btw) Because it most definitely is ok to be exactly who you are! Please always remember that ok. You are good enough and valid whether you have a gender or not and whether your possible gender is binary or non-binary. It has absolutely nothing to do with your value as a person. (i know you know all these things already but i feel like i want to say them anyway)

I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to send me this ask! I’m more touched than i can say. please drop by any time if you feel like talking, on or off anon, it doesn’t matter, which ever is more comfortable for you! I hope you’re having a wonderful day/night my dear anon.

Thank you so much for your kind words.
Maybe living in another country has made it harder to realize that this part of my life is actually gone. It hurts that I wasn’t able to hug him one last time, and that dad had to tell me via phonecall. But I have my pictures and videos and memories to keep him with me.
I miss him so much. But I’ll keep my life philosophy in mind; it’s better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.

hello friend! here is a lavender just for you!

Ahhh thank you friend!! This sweet pea is especially for you, I hope you like it!

I’ve had to tell a couple of spirits to buzz off lately...

I don’t especially like hedge work. I don’t really seek it out, rather spirits sort of find me. Most I don’t mind. Some I ignore. Others have to be told to leave me alone. This week seems to be heavy on the leave-me-along types. It’s got me scratching my head wondering if I need to consult Tarot and ask if there’s something wonky going on with The Veil.

Can you make one of my posts popular please? I'm desperate.

Sweetheart!! I cannot even make my own popular posts and you want me to help you with yours ?? hahahahahaha

I will, I have no problem !! But I don’t do anything popular, I swear.
