Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Crows, the subtle lords and masters of humanity, have long been recognised for their intelligence. In Aesop's Fable, The Crow and the Pitcher, the virtue of ingenuity is portrayed when a crow comes across a water pitcher that is too narrow and deep for the crow to get water from, so the crow proceeds to drop pebbles one-by-one until the water is high enough for it to drink. In Norse mythology, there are two notable crows Hugin and Munin, which represented thought and memory respectively. In the timeless poem, "The Raven", a crow (a raven is a crow) torments the narrator.
Apparently, a species of crow is one of the few species that has learned how to feed on the toxic cane toad. The cane toad apparently has a very poisonous skin along its back, but not on its belly. Crows apparently learned to flip the toads on their back and then eat them from the underside.
So, in conclusion, crows are fucking awesome. But don't take my word for it. Go forth and discover for yourself and share your learnings, people!
