Saw one at a zoo once, it was trying to peck through the steel fence to get to us.  Horrible animals.

This post from way back in the thread has a certain horrifying element to it where it's regarded that it's the Stork that's the horrible animal for trying to peck through the cage and not the humans for putting it there.

Certainly an ethical hot potato.

Truly we are the real storks

The whole basis for Irvine Welsh's Maribou Stork Nightmares. Boys in a coma trying to catch a massive stork, kills it as hes being killed irl then gets reborn as the Maribou Stork. It was him all along, he was the nasty, evil c**t he just couldn't admit it to himself. 

Perhaps a novel that a few on here should read and have a wee think about.

One of my favourite books ever, did my RPR in Higher English on it, many moons ago.

Chatting to a pal about the obviously big news in the Maddie McCann case today and asked her if she'd ever heard of this case which just preceded the "Internet days" which I took an interest in a few years back.

Obviously it's a strange and mysterious case and the Polaroid of the girl and the boy that was recovered later is fairly dark and haunting and still completely "unsolved".

It's definitely her in the Polaroid, in my opinion. Her favourite book happened to be in the picture too?

30 years on, still a mystery. Even with what I would call factual evidence. Anyway my pal found it grimly fascinating as she's younger than me and never heard of this case so maybe some of you folk will too.

This thing just looks and moves like an insect to me. Still. lockdown does some strange things to your mind. If it was a UFO, the pilot must be drunk.
