Funny thing about giraffe sex: 90% of it is male-on-male. Almost all giraffes are bisexual, so, considering the 3% that's female-on-female, only 7% of giraffe sex is heterosexual. So, like the picture said, male giraffes don't want to waste their time with females ( ******* gross amirite fellas) unless they're making a baby, so they smack the girl's ass with their heads until they start peeing (If she's really down, she pees a lot). Then the two giraffes engage in coitus for literally seconds so that the female can be impregnated and begin her gestation term of 400 days.
Wish I was making this **** up, people.

It's surprisingly rare to see people correctly use the past tense of **** on this site, and I appreciate it. The misuse of " **** " as past tense always annoys me more than it really should.

I was browsing the 4Chan section one night, and decided that saving this particular line of text could be useful in the future.   
   
I think the story was about how one of these dudes' friends was being a sexist, and after they all left he started masturbating, and a Telemarketer called him, so he did that.

This is an actual problem.

Once a horse starts to crib or wind suck, he can become addicted to the behavior. Some behaviorists believe that when a horse cribs or wind sucks, narcotic-like substances, called endogenous opioids, are released in the horse's brain. Chief among these are endorphins and enkephalins, morphine-like proteins, which suppress pain and activate the brain's "pleasure center."

This endorphin release is almost like getting a narcotic high and so the horse keeps going back for another dose. While factors such as diet or boredom can get a horse started, the behavior may persist when the horse experiences the endorphin release.

There was a horse that me and my family took care of for some friends that did that, we ended up getting him a cribbing collar.

But what's so bad about it? Do they start to ignore base needs?
User avatar #161 to #31 - Emers (09/04/2013) [-]
It can cause colic, ulcers, destroys property, and the horse can suck in objects they're chewing such as slivers of wood if cribbing on a tree/stall door.
User avatar #134 to #31 - biker (09/04/2013) [-]
They wear down their teeth to the point where they can no longer eat solid food.
It can also destroy any place you put them in.
It is virtually impossible to make them quit.

There's only one solution.



Illegalize air. I can't have my children become junkies because of this toxic substance.

So what you're telling me, is that horses get high...

... on AIR?!

What th **** is cribbing?
User avatar #160 to #37 - Emers (09/04/2013) [-]
Cribbing is a compulsive behavior seen in some horses. The horse grabs a solid object such as the stall door or fence rail with its incisors, then arches its neck, pulling against the object, and sucks in air. Windsucking is a related behavior where the horse arches its neck and sucks air into the windpipe without needing to grab a solid object. Cribbing and windsucking have been linked as a causal effect to colic and stomach ulcers.

Maybe. . . I'm the horse?

Our Clydesdale is a cribber, sadly cribbing collars are too small for him. We ended up painting the panels with this nasty smelling oil.

Also, female pandas are only fertile once per year, with that time period lasting only 24-36 hours. So pandas aren't necessarily dying out from excessive poaching so much as they simply can't get it on with each other. This is what we call natural selection.
#44 to #35 - megazoidubertron **User deleted account** (09/04/2013) [-]
it also doesn't help that a mother panda will occasionally roll over and crush her baby while sleeping.

The wind sucking thing horses do is a sighn of extreme boredom or stress. It's a stereotypical behaviour much like weaving (doing figure 8 with their head) and chewing the stable door.
It's a very hard habit to break in a horse, and if your horse does it, it ain't good.

I actually witnessed the giraffe fact once. The male chased the lady giraffe and kept drinking AS she peed.
