HoratioGates: jimw: Crows have been shown to make tools out of bits of wire. They even time their action by the changing of street lights to crack nuts they take from trees in the crosswalks to avoid getting hit.

I misread that as 'cows'. I knew about the crows. I was worried about the cows though. We don't need large mammals competing with us, fighting for their bovine freedom, holding their large heads high.

I'm a little bothered that this article mentions that they filmed the tool maker but failed to post a link to the video. If cockatoos can make tools surely reporters can create links?

1: Cows still don't have opposable thumbs. I'm not that worried about them even if they do achieve Mensa IQs.

2: No, cockatoos are much smarter than your average reporter now. I'd even say cockatiels are smarter than roughly 75% of reporters. Probably 95% if you waved something shiney at them.
