Problem: The crows team up with cephalopods.

You had me at Japanese school girl.

A girl and her raptor. Very nice.

This line from TFA: "The falcon is a divine punishment against crows. When their eyes meet the glare of the falcon, they will definitely not return."

...reminds me of Cort's words to Roland in Stephen King's "The Gunslinger":

"The hawk does not fear you, boy, and the hawk never will. The hawk is God's gunslinger."

Birds of prey are the ultimate in badassery. ;)

Damn, I didn't think I was that drunk, but I read this one as "cows" not crows, and wondered what good a falcon would be against a cow.

God Damn you Japanese girls
Do it to me everytime
Oh, the redhead says she'll shread the cello

Based on what I know about Japanese schoolgirls, she can probably take care of herself.

/Unless there are tentacles involved, then she's in trouble.

I love this story and this thread.

Though I just returned from living in Japan for a while and I must say, I've seen crows gang up on falcons quite a bit there. The crows are also badass little brawlers.

Misato, go kick some ass.

/I love Momotaro

Sounds like the premise to the next hit anime series that will go completely off the rails by episode 5 but last 300 episodes without ever resolving anything.

Ha. I thought the exact same thing, but then again I'm high, drunk and still kind of feeling the ecstasy I took earlier, so, yeah...

Damn, I had forgotten all about that game. Had the version on the Super Nintendo, I think. Great freaking game.

There's a murder of crows that nests by my workplace, and a casino right next door. The casino hires a falconer to chase those ones away, too. For some reason, people think that thousands upon thousands of crows around a casino are bad luck.

Well, they'd be right. A casino is bad luck. After all, the house always wins.

I think we have the pilot for an anime.

/May need to make the crows transforming demon robots
//And the falcon to have various power levels

That was one cool video. I sued to do Raptor rehab. I have some pictures. Debating whether to post. We kept one Red Tailed Hawk, and Golden Eagle which could not be released. The Golden Eagle was a livestock killer, so he was either going to stay captured or destroyed. We ended up training him to hunt rabbits.

Personally, I am not sure whether those Japanese crows are intimidated or just pissed off. From the video, it looks like they are communicating that there is a bird of prey in the neighborhood. They are known to gang up on a raptor, but that is a sizable falcon, and a known associate of humans. The crows are likely communicating that info, too. "There is an asshole falcon working with the poopy heads."

Thanks for the falcon!

Why not just get a gun that fires blank rounds? Doesn't that kill Crows?

Damn it, I really thought I would be the first to think of that. Well played, Sir.

Don't worry, i did the same... and i am not drunk. But i do have a cold + hayfever so my head ain't working.

She may be small in physical stature, but the penis she's hiding under that dress is impossibly massive.

farm8.staticflickr.com We will deal with your raven friends soon enough.

blogs.chesterchronicle.co.uk No. Leave them to me. I will deal with them myself.

I feel like this is the premise for an anime series.
And if it isn't, it should be.

I'm pretty sure the crow word for human is "food ape."

How to solve any problem in Japan.
Step 1: Hire a schoolgirl
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit!

"You could say that the girl and her falcon"

*puts on glasses*

"Are engaged in a murder of crows."


YEEEAAAHHHH!

This isn't half as weird as some of the manga out there. There's one about a kid who enters Famicom tournaments because he was raised by wolves.
 
2012-04-08 08:20:57 AM

Gleeman: Kawaii?


I would attempt to tap that, but then the freakin' bird of prey would claw my face off. She is safe from tappage. For now.
 
2012-04-08 08:21:29 AM
Sure, it's a good idea now, but soon the prefecture will be overrun by Japanese schoolgirls. Then they'll have to import tentacle monsters to deal with them.


/Then tentacle-eating gorillas to deal with the tentacles
//When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.

For some reason I was sure the headline would end with, "...then the gorillas die in the winter."
 
2012-04-08 08:45:10 AM
"Hire a schoolgirl" is the Japanese solution for everything, at least until the tentacle monsters show up. Then it's "hire a schoolgirl and get a camera."

In a lot of Asian cultures crows are bad omens.
