As someone terrified of swans I'm super pleased to know that one swan can actually contain 10 smaller attack swans...

RELEASE THE ATTACK DRONES!

level 2

Just think of them as extremely large, two legged mama spiders who can navigate dry land, swim, and also fly.

Way less frightening that way.

I was not going to be satisfied by this gif until every last cygnet climbed safely aboard.

There’s a constellation called Cygnus the swan, now I have to go google what came first

I’m pretty sure the stars would have been in existence long before the advent of swans - the bird.

They mean which was named that first. I figure you already know that and yet I'm drawn to comment.

Just because you don't know something doesn't mean that everyone doesn't know that thing. What you should do instead of trying to make fun of them or bring them down to your level is instead go "huh, I didn't know that, cool!" and learn something. Not knowing something is nothing to be embarrassed about.

level 4

You'd think that attitude would be the norm in /r/WatchandLearn

level 1

I’m so glad they showed that last one scuttle in or I would have been up all night worrying about him.
