Scientists Discover Prehistoric Giant 'Squawkzilla' Parrot, As Big As Small Child

quote [ The flightless bird weighed 15 pounds, was about 3 feet tall and probably feasted on other parrots. Study lead Trevor Worthy made the discovery after examining two 19 million-year-old leg bones. ]

Uhm I think parrots are danky

Here is the grandfather of all parrots. He must be a thousand years old! Look at the evil wisdom of his eyes. What mysteries do you guard, Wise Devil?

Not directly related, but article made me think of something that crosses my mind as a weird metric for time and lifespan:

If any of us were to get a new-born parrot today, we would have to plan for that parrot's future in our wills and in the event we enter longterm care and the parrot can't come.

To live as long as a parrot born today, I would have to make it to 103 years old or more.

So, SEers, how old are you relative to a parrot's lifespan? :D

I can only think that Polly would want a cake instead of a small coockie.

Polly wants a cracker, and she means a white person.
