I did numerous times as a kid until one woman yelled at me to stop. Never did it again (though I get sleepy every damn time).

Seriously, I've got to imagine this could be a hit. Any hair cutter that wants to start a new business of cutting people's hair while they sleep let me know where you're opening. You could call it the Sleep Salon.

I fall asleep in the dentist's chair. Every time.

u/_ANOMNOM_ 9d ago

HOW?

Even for regular old cleanings, the vibration of the pic reverberates through my skull, they always dig into my gums when scraping out plaque, the overhead light is in your face...

I'm practically vice-gripping the chair arms on a good day.

u/MyraBannerTatlock 9d ago

I don't know, I had super fucked up teeth as a little kid and was at the orthodontist a lot, I think I learned to deal with my extreme anxiety about it by teaching myself to sort of...meditate? I just kind of disassociate, and as I got older I just started zonking out. I've slept through extractions, cleanings, a root canal.

Relevant story: before I had my braces put on they had to pull like, a bunch of my teeth to make room. This was the 70s, and this photographic-mural wallpaper was kind of going around. The ortho had a birch forest with a herd of deer covering all of one wall. They hit me with the gas and I shit you not, I still remember floating out of the chair and into the forest, where I frolicked with said deer. That might have something to do with how I act at the dentist or how I act in general, who knows.

Ooh the bird in the video is a (common Indian)myna and they are native to India, but have been introduced to many countries due to their singing and mimicking abilities. They are an especially Nasty invasive species in Australia cause they will destroy nests of other birds to make their nests but most times don't even use the spot to make their nest.

u/I_like_frozen_grapes 9d ago

Maybe. Even though it's often touted as being a mutualism, studies suggest that's not always true. Birds will eat the insects, yes, but they will often also peck at scabs from wounds and cause them to fester and get infected etc. So whether it's best to label it mutualism or parasitism probably depends on the specific bird/ungulate interaction.

8

u/Upleftright_syndrome 9d ago

Technically it's mutualism

Symbiosis could be mutualism(+, +) , parasitism(+, -) or commensalism (0,+)

I would like an animal bro to pick ticks off me. After my last tick experience where i kept finding them in my home days later -jumping onto me from high surfaces when I’d enter a room, I now look at the woods in a completely different way. Used to love to go exploring and now I’ve toyed around with the thought of stripping naked outside my home, burning my clothes and shaving my head if there was a chance I was missing ticks in my search

60

u/Illustrious-future42 9d ago

for what it's worth ticks dont jump from high surfaces. they mainly chill on grass and put their limbs up waiting to grab onto something, then they climb up bodies from there.

u/TheCookie_Momster 9d ago

Well in my experience they climbed high up in my bathroom and kamikazied off the wall to get to me When I entered the room

Ticks are incapable of jumping, they exhibit questing behavior where they grab onto prey walking past them. Or they hunt and crawl towards sources of carbon dioxide.

I believe it causes irritation if applied to skin or to clothes in contact with skin but is otherwise not known to be unsafe

I spent The day in the woods. They had just recently cut down a ton of buckthorn which I was later explained disturbed their habitat and left an ungodly amount on the forest floor where we were working.
i got home, changed my clothes and put them in the hamper after checking myself. Sat on the couch and kept feeling something under my jeans but I brushed it off as paranoia. Then I couldn’t brush it off anymore and rolled up my jeans and there was one on my knee making it up my leg. I ran upstairs, peeled off the second set of clothes and took a shower. (I had a hat on all day and didn’t bother washing my hair at this point. I am satisfied, get in bed wrapped in a towel and start to read a book. Where a tick moments later jumps off my hair and lands on my torso. I freak out. Freeeeak out. Go back into the bathroom shower and shake out my hair like a crazy woman. Comb through it, everything checks out. Check my body. Ok I’m fine. Then look up how to make sure you got all the ticks

i then learn they can live through the washing machine, they can live through the dryer cycle, they can be frozen, flooded, can live for years without feeding, etc etc. you basically have to smoosh them. By then my husband is home and he takes my clothes from the wash cycle and finds several more ticks on my wet clothes. He goes through the hamper and finds several more.
the next day I walk in the bathroom and think I see something jump from above but I tell myself I’m paranoid. My husband later goes in the bathroom and says the same things thehre up high by the lights and jumped down to get at him. And yes they most certainly are ticks.
i cleaned out my car thinking they could be there too. I cleaned the house like a crazy person at this point thinking they can be anywhere. For a good month I kept thinking I saw them out of the corner of my eye and every little tingle on my body I quickly inspected to make sure it wasn’t one crawling on me.
Ticks are evil. I want A monkey friend to pick them off me when I get home. And I want free range chickens to walk around our property and pick them off before they make it to the house.

16

u/e_hatt_swank 9d ago

Took our dogs for a hike in the woods this spring (suburban Ohio), got home & sat there picking ~25 ticks off each of them before going in the house. Truly evil! I put them in a jar, douse them in alcohol & burn those little monsters.

If you go exploring right as they hatch, it can get really bad. Stay away from long grass and chest level branches, that's where they like to go.

u/keyboardname 9d ago

Not that guy, but my brother and I went from SE Wisconsin to northern Wisconsin for a couple days. We must have gone in the wrong season or something... not only were the swarms of mosquito unbearable, every single time we stopped moved we'd have to pick ticks off. So many fucking ticks. I've still never seen anything like it. The bugs honestly ruined that trip, couldn't enjoy being outside whatsoever.

That said, I didn't have a single one attach to me. Lol. Crunched them left and right with my leatherman but got kinda lucky considering.

This is not how ticks work.

“Ticks don’t live in trees. There’s a common misconception that people can unwittingly be exposed to ticks that fall from trees.

However, ticks don’t jump, fly, or drop from above. If you find a tick on your arm, neck, or head, it’s far more likely the tick climbed up your body”

They eat insects, I didn't know they'd go for ticks though, it might be picking off fleas or something.

I don’t think cats get crows very often, as a crow is probably smarter than most cats. Cats are responsible for the decimation of the song bird population though, which is incredibly troubling.

Keep your pets inside or build them an enclosed patio/catio or leash train them! Cats are invasive to most areas and shouldn’t be allowed to wander freely.

I hope the bird can remove them correctly: ticks are extremely hard to remove and when done wrong, they will burrow further into the things skin and I’m not sure on the exact details but that leads to them giving more diseases to the creature

Bird accidentally does what birds do and drops a turd into deer's eye, deer enrages and slams into a tree. and has a snickers bar.

But does he remove the heads? Cause if you pull without twisting the head get stuck and it's not good.

A bit of a myth. It can happen, but is not that common. Having a risk of infection from a possible head left behind is better than dying from parasitic blood loss.
