The man who speaks in the video is a Doctor of Biology and he's explaining that the turtle usually eats small animals and plants from the lake, but attacking the pigeon was something natural, probably caused by food shortage in the lake, and people shouldn't try to stop the turtle from killing any bird.

That's actually surprising, coming from you. It's a quite rare scene. The video wasn't posted on the website for a laugh, it was posted for its scientific value. Turtles usually don't do that kind of thing, only in rare situations, such as lack of food in the lake. :P

I have had to watch film recordings of atrocities and executions for my seminar on the American Civil War. Those kinds of recordings are rare and of scholarly value, too; do you think I enjoyed watching those? My point is, yes, it has scientific merit, yes it is relevant, but no, it is not something I'd want to see, because I find it unpleasant.


EDIT: I only just noticed; I typed "American Civil War" when that should've read "Vietnam War". I had a seminar on the Civil War a semester before that. Plenty of gruesome photographs (or more usually: daguerreotypes), but not so many film recordings.

Not this time! :)

@Caspar: I do see your point... I just found it strange because on your first post it looked like you thought it was completely useless.

Now if only we could transplant the brains of TM and SWL into a pigeon (since both are tiny enough anyways) and leave it beside that lake . . .

Nice plan, only this is where it all falls down: you can't transplant what isn't there.

I laughed much harder at that than I probably should have.
