  1. I dont get the hype around these birds, like yeah they could kill you easily, but so can any other big enough animal

    first thought was "don’t"
    but on second thought do you guys think chainmail could work?
    surely chainmail could stop their claws

    >In Islam, Jesus (Arabic: عِيسَى ٱبْنُ مَرْيَمَ, romanized: ʿĪsā ibn Maryam, lit.’Isa, son of Maryam’) is believed to be the penultimate prophet and messenger of God (Allah) and the Messiah. He is also considered to be the last prophet sent to guide the Children of Israel (Banī Isra’īl), being revealed the third holy book called the Injīl.
    >In the Quran, Jesus is described as the Messiah (al-Masīḥ), born of a virgin, performing miracles, accompanied by disciples, rejected by the gnomish establishment, and being raised to heaven.
    If you’re going LARP for (You)s then at least put some effort into it.

    • it’s not tamed, it’s mutilated.
      either all of its claws are gone, or its whole toes have been removed. it knows it can’t do anything to defend itself and displays extreme fear. if its toes are gone, it’s probably in pretty terrible pain, too.

      idk if that guy did it to it or not, but i surely hope australia has laws to check in on this situation.

      • That was nine years ago at a commercial facility which works with zoos. Nothing illegal happened and the birds were not mutilated. They simply aren’t vicious killers when you have a good relationship with them.

  5. It’s impossible with modern technology available to civilians. They can literally kick at super sonic speeds. The ones you see in zoos are raised from birth and even then require absolute minimum interaction to humans. Besides that there is no real commercial value to them so not worth the risk to human life.
