    I think Sally's great except when she talks down to people. Blaine knows she's smarter, but still wants to ask questions and feel like an idiot for it. You even see Gav look at Gus like "uh.." after one of her moments

    New Zealand has hardcore laws regarding their ecosystem. We exported a dog their a year ago or so and it was a several month long process with a lot paper work and tests required.

    I kind of love the absolute contempt in Sally's expression by the end of the post show for any time Blaine opened his mouth, especially when you see her go from a bemused 'is he having a laugh?' to a tolerant 'he can't be serious...' to full on 'are you stupid?'

    Those grackle birds sound like the seagulls from my high school. They would wait around at lunch for students to abandon their food, because of course teens will just abandon their food when they're done, and the birds just go to town.

    Turkeys i think have eaten one another. or at least pecked eachother to death. I'm an asshole. We have turkeys on campus, I will feed left overs from thanksgiving, or a turkey sandwich to them. they LOVE IT.

    yeah if someone says 'the queen' i'll probably think of the british queen, but if someone says 'dronningen' which means 'the queen' in danish i'm gonna think of the danish queen. I think it's much more of a language and context thing than anything else

    I can't help but be somewhat ashamed/amused that when Sally mentioned measuring the Great Barrier Reef in Wales, my mind immediately went to measuring it in whales...

      Just did the math, the Great Barrier Reef is 16.59 Wales and could fit 382 666 666.67 Blue Whales

    How do she go from "cuck" to cuckoo?   

    • pixelpotumus FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      because cuck is short for cuckoo.

      Cuck isn't short for Cuckoo lol, it's short for cuckold, Google it, safesearch off.

    • mistergookey

      JKEHLSLL, pixelpotumus is right in a way. While cuck isn't short for cuckoo, cuckold came from the Old French cucuault, which came from the cucu (cuckoo).

      In other words, while cuck is short for cuckold rather than cuckoo. The term cuckold comes from the word cuckoo due to the way they lay their eggs in other birds nests.

    If the Great Barrier Reef is anything to go by, mining companies with enough money for government kickbacks can by anything. Might want to visit it before it's gone.

    There aren't any native land predators (or mammals other than like, one bat species) in NZ because it was too cold here for them to evolve. The only one was the Haast eagle, which preyed on other birds. And that's why several of the birds are nocturnal (such as the kiwi). The kea's defence was to move to the mountains because the Haast eagle didn't go up there and it's now the world's only alpine parrot. This is also why a lot of NZ birds are flightless or just really dumb (like the moa, which doesn't exist anymore).


    We do have issues with introduced mammals (cats, dogs, ferrets/stoats/weasels, etc) attacking our native birds. It's why so many of them are endangered (that and humans, but mostly it's the damn stoats).


    Also, NZ broke away from Antarctica, not Australia, AFAIK. Which is why it's a lot colder. There's also 4,155km between NZ and Australia, so while it seems like they're super close, we're really not.

      Didn't a single cat decimate the Dodo population in New Zealand?

      Thanks for the explanation, but I have one question - how does breaking off from antarctica impacts climate? I mean, aren't latitude and currents/winds more important?

      @Splybox A single cat was reported to have wiped out a species of wren on Stephens Island which is a part of New Zealand. Turns out it's not true as the cat did kill one of the birds but more were found alive after that. They are extinct now however.

    Driving down my old neighborhood I almost completely stopped because a squirrel and a mocking bird were having a full on battle. Squirrel was on its back legs grabbing and the bird and the bird was pecking it and grabbing the squirrel with its feet.

    I wonder if Sally will be in a podcast lets play. I know she's not a big gamer, but maybe something simple like the Jackbox games or something would be fun to see.

    My dad once took partial care of an english sparrow chick after it was thrown out of it's nest by a gust of wind. The parents watched my dad take it inside and after the storm passed they hung around outside the house. My dad brought the chick outside and placed it under a bush where the parents immediately started to feed it after which they flew into a nearby tree and let my dad bring it back inside the house. This continued until the chick could fly.

    New Zealand is so fertile I don't think it makes sense for the species to spend resources developing venom and fangs. Also there were no mammals on New Zealand when it broke away from Australia so there would be no point evolving venom that works on mammals (like humans). The Maori natives also killed all the giant birds that actually were dangerous (2m tall moa and 2m wide eagles) shortly after they arrived 800 years ago.


    Meanwhile Australia is mostly hot, dry desert and has warmer waters.

      Moa weren't really dangerous from what I know. They had no defences and were pretty slow. They were just big so the other birds avoided them. The Māori would've been fine.


      They also tended to fall into caves a lot.

      That's pretty much the hypothesis behind N.Z. lack of native land predators: isolation, no selective pressure for killing other animals and when humans rock up a lot of potential danger/source of food tends to suffer a huge population drop/extinction

      There's also the fact that all the Orcs and Goblins and the cave trolls would have wiped out any land predators anyway.....
