An operation best left to the pros. A Gannet is a big bird and not one with them most gentle disposition, especially when threatened.

The bird was just doing what it was told to do. It can result in discipline if they refuse a pecking order.

Birds don't see humans and go "oh hey, check out this guy coming to help me out", they think,"I'm hurt and pissed off and somebody is going to pay for it before I die".g

Birds are the last living descendants of the dinosaurs. All you need to do to be reminded of this is to look one in the eye.

Was he the bloke who caused an accident by swerving to miss a stoat, mutton or beck in spate?

I guess his copy of Olsen's Standard Book of British Birds was the one without the Gannet.

They've got long nasty beaks.

They should have left the dangling eyeball. He'd have been a hit at parties.

When I was a kid, my friend pulled out his wallet and threw it at a flock of gulls overhead. We were at El Roble Intermediate School, which was called a Junior High School in those days. His wallet was fastened by velcro which was the style at the time. The important thing was that you could really zing those little squares since they didn't fly open. He wallet hit a seagull midflight with a great deal of force. The poor thing fell straight to the ground, stunned. My buddy was instantly sorry for what he'd done and picked up the bird to take to an adult in the library. Inside the library the bird awoke and began pecking my friend until he released it. It then flew around the library in a rage, screaming and squawking and crashing into windows. The children were squealing with laughter as the adults swung brooms furiously in the air. His task complete, my friend went back to the lunch tables to think about what he'd done. The tables were aluminum, which was the style at the time. We spent the rest of the afternoon stomping on ketchup packets.

Blind in one eye, and Gannet barely see out of the other?
 
2011-07-12 11:51:15 AM
Does it take any skill at all to play Angry Birds? Most people I see playing just kinda work it like a slot machine, aimlessly launching birds and restarting the level over and over again.
 
2011-07-12 11:52:09 AM
The couple later returned to the beach - to find the bird had died and its body was lying in the sand.


He was later seen punting the bird and screaming "Dat's your ASS!"

Fark Nature.

Well, you do have to remember what happened when you throw at a certain angle and force...then you restart the level and try to do it better :D

So yeah, pretty much as you described.

One time I looked out in my backyard and saw a pair of sandhill cranes jumping around flapping and squawking like crazy. So as I was protected by a big cast on my broken wrist, I figured I'd go out and take some pictures until I got too close and they flew away. So I did. I got a great picture from about a foot away from the beak of one of those giants. They didn't attack and the they didn't fly away. But in hindsight, that was probably pretty stupid.

He has been also been told he may never work again as a welder.



Funny, until this point in TFA I just assumed he was some kind of rescue vet specializing in sea birds.

No, but he did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

The bird wasn't trying to blind him, it was just trying to drink his sweet, sweet eye juices.

Not always. I've had some (an owl) when captured for a study just lays its head back and close its eyes (no violence in the capture) as if to say "Ok, this is it. I'm dead." It was like it was just giving up. It was uninjured, restrained with a stocking over its head like a little hostage, and subsequently released without any problem.

...the fark? What is there in ice cream that would attract a bird?

Dairy products? Not seeing it.
The waffle cones? Maybe? They're vaguely grain-product-esque. I got nothin'.
