felis_ultharus is listening to the radio

After that, on Quirks and Quarks, they were interviewing a woman who was exploring the relationship between the coloration of male barn swallows, and their testosterone levels -- the darker they are, the more testosterone, but they weren't sure which was cause and which effect. So they captured, tagged, and coloured male barn swallows, and released them back into the wild.

The high-tech technology they used to change their colour? Non-toxic black markers.

I want that on my résumé: "2008: coloured live barn swallows with black magic marker for science."

Naturally, when I went into Tim Horton's right after hearing this interview, the radio was playing "Ça fait rire les oiseaux."

Context is flipping you the bird. QWP.

Making money? Epic Win!

dorknessrising, being a recent immigrant, can't legally work yet, hence the following:

I've resorted to a paid survey/offer site to try and earn a little bit of extra cash, because I'm a workaholic at heart and I hate feeling like I'm not doing anything. Truth be told, it's not a bad way to earn money. I can do some of the bigger offers once I get my card paid down a little.

A lot of the higher-paid offers require you to sign up for a free trial of something with your credit card. But as long as you cancel within the trial period after you're credited your reward, no harm no foul. I made about $90 at another site with those, but that one was U.S. only and sent you payments solely by check.

I can get PAID for buying Girls Gone Wild. You don't get much better than that.

Context is qwippy.
