I have about a million and one things I want to write about, I have literally started and abandoned like three posts, planning to come back to them. But just for a tidbit of randomness, this is what has been going through my head ever since the mass of geese started moving through Colorado. I know I could google this shit, but why would I do that? I would much rather hypothesize and send my weird thoughts out into the universe for you all to laugh at.
Okay here's the deal, do you think there is like the dumb goose who oversleeps and gets left behind from his flock? And if so, what happens to him/her? Can they just join into the next flock moving through? Could they be sneaky and just blend in? Or would someone notice and be like 'dude, get the heck out of here'.
Basically geese all look the freakin' same to me....okay that is racist. I am sure if I sat on a bench and observed them for a period of time I would start noticing the differences. But like do you think they have this whole complicated family structure where one is the dad and one is the mom and their kids all know them and follow them around. And that family unit is part of an extended family unit with aunts and uncles and grandparents and that is what constitutes a flock? Or does some type-A goose just squawk and say "I am outta here bitches it's gonna get cold, you with me or what?", and then like the 30 geese who believe him follow him south. Maybe they get to Colorado and 12 of those geese feel like sticking around for a little while and the rest keep going. Another 20 show up and they regroup and head on their way.
Isn't this the most B.S. post you've ever read? But seriously I am genuinely curious about this shit. Maybe it is because I have the brain of a 5 year old sometimes. I was most certainly the kid who kept asking questions and then kept saying "but why?" when my parent's hadn't explained it to the level of my liking.
Obviously I don't care about the sociopolitical structure of geese enough to actually investigate, but there ya go.
