A condor has struck up an unusual friendship with a man who saved the huge creature’s life.
The man nursed the condor back to health after it reportedly fell from a nest as a baby.
And the condor clearly didn’t forget his rescuer, as video footage shows the pair greeting each other with hugs and one big warm embrace, after the condor returned.
After being rescued, the condor – the largest bird in North America – was then able to learn how to fly and return to normal life.
BIRD HUG!!! BIRD HUG!!! BIRD HUG!!!

In a landmark verdict, Trinidad’s high court judge, Devindra Rampersad ruled that Sections 13 and 16 of the country’s Sexual Offences Act, which criminalizes same-sex intimacy is UNCONSTITUTIONAL and contrary to the laws of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Sending love and congratulations to Jason Jones, the prideful #LGBTQ community and our partners in the twin islands for making history!

The story of the Distant Goddess is absolute proof that it’s a crime that Ancient Egyptian mythology hasn’t entered the popular conciousness in the same way as Greek stuff.
Short, super paraphrased version: Ra is sick of humanity being rebellious wee bastards, so he sends a goddess as an embodiment of his vengeance, usually Sekhmet in the form of a great fuckoff lion – first to the southern deserts to wipe out the followers of Set. She does so, and then for unspecified reasons, Ra decides maybe humanity is redeemable hey call off the murderlion. But being an embodiment of pure divine retribution, she isn’t really having it.
So Ra sends Thoth out in an effort to soothe the goddess before she arrives in the north and wipes out everything including the gods (she’s just that strong). He’s terrified, but he tries all sorts of cunning and wisdom and trickery and tells her moral tales and all that, but all he can do is delay her.
In the meantime, Ra’s priests of the north are hard at work. They brew thousands of barrels of beer, and mix pots and pots red dye. And when the goddess inevitably arrives, they mix it up and pour it into the reeds of the nile. Believing it to be the spilled blood of her enemies, she drinks it up proudly… And gets EXTREMELY drunk, calming down and transforming into Hathor, goddess of joy and love.
And once a year to celebrate this momentous occasion, Egyptians would get Absolutely Plastered.
