Hello yes! A Science Birb, here to explain the science!

Birb have VERY LARGE EYE in skull. Very good for seeing! But not space for muscle, birb cannot move eye. For mammal to make steady image, keep focus on single thing, always moving eye! Tiny movements, sometimes not even know. But birb cannot make tiny movements! So, birb must move whole head. And that is why the birb can keep steady the head when the body is amovering!

Thank you for listening to a science

I’m crying

That was the greatest scientific explanation I have ever read

So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.

The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female.

Second prize is a copy of Virgie Tovar’s Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion which features some seriously life-changing essays by some of the most amazing fatties I know (and also my essay, “Who Wears Short Shorts?”). Third prize is your very own bottle of Plump’s Riots Not Diets, the robin’s egg blue polish specially formulated by Plump for this very blog.
