Vancouver Island shit donít smell!   Other than rightist Victoria, which dumps its untreated human shit right into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

HAHA

I can tell you that French Creek, which is on Vancouver Island, has all sorts of gulls and other vermin around the fish plant eating discarded fish remains.  That must be a rightist plant though....    ::)

I rightist fish plant could be known as such if the plant takes short cuts on environmental concerns around the plant. The more rightist they are, the more conscious they will be on ensuring nothing cuts into their profits. Obviously we wouldn't now have emission control on vehicles now if it wasn't for the determination of leftists. We wouldn't even have seat belts and air bags!

That's not the fish plant I mentioned. And I would agree that Victoria pumping out raw sewage is disgraceful.

But still overall, Vancouver Island is a notch above the mainland for cleanliness. People who can afford more choose t live all along the Pacific ocean fringe due to a better quality of life.

Rightist Victoria? It's pretty well Green Victoria now and that's something worth mentioning due to the contradiction with the sewage.

Every fish plant attracts gulls.  Leftist or rightist, although a label like that on a fish plant is rather idiotic.

It's the management of the plant silly, and the government that enforces regulations on the plant. A fish plant in Alberta would be a filthy stinking mess, while a fish plant in B.C. is usually more like the one I referred to. That one has one or two gulls sitting around because they're attracted to the smell of fish. But it's so few because they don't get any opportunity.

Which plant?

And how many fish plants do you think there are in Alberta?

Best if you just believe what I've said. I don't make up lies about such things.

When I can coax squid and wilbur to start calling me a liar, I have the incentive I need to tell them what plant I've been talking about.

And as a side note, St.Jean's cannery could maybe be included as a fish processing plant too, which might have a couple of gulls hanging around that are attracted by the smell of the steam escaping.

Neither provide any opportunity for seagulls.

A reduction plant is not a fish plant.  Holy crap. 

A cannery out in the middle of land is also not much of a fish plant.  The ones on the water that process fish generally have gulls hanging around.  I'm not even sure why that matters, except that it makes them "rightist"....

They're both fish processing plants that afford no opportunity to gulls.
The point is that you two accused me of lying.

Corvids are smart there, is no doubt about it. I'm sure they would use tools if they had the hands to fashion them. They already use things like our cars as a tools when they drop nuts on the road so cars will crack them.

You underestimate them again!

We already knew that corvids - crows and ravens - are capable of reasoning cause and effect, solving multi-step puzzles, planning for the future and even fashioning simple tools out of sticks and paper.

But making compound tools is something that has only ever been observed before in primates - specifically, humans and and great apes.

Even young humans take several years to be able to learn this skill, because cognitively speaking, it's actually quite complex. It requires the ability to anticipate the properties of objects, and to be able to mentally map the consequences of putting them together prior to doing so.

How could somebody mistake the Corvid Culture thread for the Covid Culture thread?  To me that is completely ridiculous.
