Darwins theory at work - 10.29.2009, 01:22 AM

Hey, I have no sympathy, if the birds that stupid..... And before that nature and hippies lovers bitch, that wind turbine is spinning slowly enough so that 99% of birds will easily see and avoid the blades, all modern wind turbines are designed that way. Larger turbines create more torque and can turn larger gear boxes and thus, do not need to spin at high speeds to generate electricity. More birds die each year from automobile accidents and skyscrapers vs modern wind turbines.

Poor thing Even if it was a really dumb bird. I hope that it was put out of it's misery quickly, or that the proper wildlife management authorities were called.

Actually I think at the end it died from shock.

Sure it's dumb, but mostly it's really sad. The road to progress is awash in blood.

That sucks. I can't tell you how many dead deer I pass everyday on the way to work. Regardless, when one slammed into my car on a dead run I was sad. (f'd the side of my car too.)

Evolution works over a long period of time. Not quick enough for all the dumbass deer. I swear they are drawn to the traffic.

I hate that too. On one hand I am saddened by the death, but on the other, am disappointed that all that meat is going to waste.

Speaking of which, lots of the hillbillies here have those little bullet-looking things mounted to their bumpers. I presume they are simply whistles activated by the airflow of a moving vehicle, and are meant to scare away would-be roadkill. Do these actually work? Or is it just another hillbilly affectation to go along with their old rusty pickup with the gunrack?

they're sold in MN as deer alerts. They're supposed to scare deers away. They have a very narrow output zone, and are rarely aimed right, so even if they do work they won't work.

I had some on my '86 LTD crown victoria signature series lx. I used them as elephant alerts, and for as long as I owned that car I never hit an elephant. They work great!
