George Kennedy was right! From "A Hoot in the Dark: The Evolution of General Rhetoric" (concrete evidence follows):

There is also quite a lot of epideictic rhetoric among animals. By this I mean a kind of ritualized socializing that involves reassuring “contact calls” within the group. In the fall, I have witnessed convocations of crows on my university campus. To me, as an uninformed spectator interested in rhetoric, it looked as though they had gathered to debate some important issue. There was much cawing. Some of the crows seemed to become disgusted with the proceedings and flew off; some turned their backs on the center of the group as if to vote “no.” Brief research on the habits of the crow (corvus brachyrhynchus) revealed that they were probably not engaged in deliberation on any of the three subjects that most interest them (territorial control, mating, and feeding). There was no food supply at the site of the conference, it was not the mating season, and they had temporarily abandoned their territorial instincts to come together. Our local crows do not migrate, and they usually live in pairs or small families with distinct territories, but occasionally they assemble into large flocks. Zoologists have identified among crows what is known as an “assembly call,” which consists of a succession of long raucous cries. This brings other crows together. Another kind of utterance is the “contact call,” which consists of a series of short caws spaced into groups of two. This is probably a way of establishing a relationship to others in the flock. The assembly and the vocalization thus perform something like the reaffirmation of group identity in ceremonial oratory on public occasions. Birds are the most vocal of all animals and vocal rhetoric is more highly developed among them than in any species except human beings. It is perhaps not a coincidence that the Greeks gave the name Corax, or “crow,” to the “inventor” of rhetoric.

Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q)

My favorite legend is that crows are the souls of the dead

Just ripped some Vinyl old stuff new stuff..This is a newer release from Who killed spikey jacket. This rip is not the best quality but live with it. I loved the WKSJ? Demo, But was not as impressed with there 12’ that came out after that. I think for me it was too clean sounding and I was used too the same tracks recorded a little more raw. But this release is amazing they have a new vocalist (in addition to the old one) this album seems to be faster and more intense then the twelve inch. If you haven’t heard of theese guys yet check them out and better yet try to catch them live. There shows look insane.

Wrist (Ankle, Waist, Thigh, etc.) Catch

This is a very good knot to use if you expect your partner to struggle. This knot stands out from others because it will not tighten down if pulled on and is a very important safety feature.

Step 1 - Start with the midpoint of a length of rope and position it as shown.

Step 2 - Pull the double cords through the loop.

Step 3 - Wrap those cords around the wrist and.

Step 4 - Pull the double cords through the new loop you just formed. You have now very quickly placed 4 cords around the wrist.

Step 5 - Grab the free ends of the rope and pull them completely through the loop you made in step 4.   (This is the lock.)

Step 6 - Pull those cords all the way through. And tighten the knot.

Step 7 - This is what the knot looks like under tension.
