According to researchers at Cornell University, parrots are named by their parents — and not their pirate.
Scientists had already observed dolphins, crows, primates and parrots have unique calls when they want the attention of specific members of their groups. But they wanted to know how our animal friends got their names. Do they name themselves? Are they named after a defining characteristic (like Joe form work with the big ass you call bigass Joe)??
After careful observations the Cornellians figured out it's the proud parrot parents who gave each chick its name.
Much like a human, the adult parrot will choose a name for its young soon after it's born. Each parrot, though, may tweak its own signature call as it grows older, elongating a whistle here or shortening a chirp there, essentially giving itself a nickname.
It makes sense, they are the only English speaking animal. LOL.
Who doesn't want to meet the celeb they totally idolize?!
Well, meet and greets don't always go as expected when the unexpected happens, which is exactly the case in this misunderstanding for a fan who recently met Ariana Grande at an MTV, Pepsi, and VH1-sponsored event.
A story from a young girl just came out about once meeting Ariana back in 2011 at another event, and she couldn't have had a better experience as she got to meet her idol and take pics with her.
But fastforward to this August when the young girl met Ariana again in connection with the MTV VMAs. She won a contest and took her sister with her to meet Ariana at the L.A. Forum in Inglewood after producing art showing just how much she loves Ari.
Unfortunately, the girls weren't too happy with the outcome of the meeting. They claim they were kept waiting before meeting with employees at MTV who asked the fans to tape a reaction to meeting Ariana before they met her.
When Ariana made her way to the fans, they claim she was icy, seemed uninterested in being there, and had a handful of assistants with her. The young girl says fans were then told rules about meeting Ariana which included that they were to give all gifts to her security and not her, and that they were only allowed to take a selfie with her. The young fan says Ariana only met them for a matter of seconds before running off.
HOWEVER, on the other hand is Ariana's side of the story. And an explanation about WHY she ran off that anyone could sympathize with.
