Without looking, I assumed it was this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kqy9h...eature=related

heh, looks familiar

I have seen sea gulls do some pretty bold maneuvers, best was when one stole my dad's steak right off the bbq grill with him watching. Then flew over to a buoy nearby and ate it.

The panoramic view when the gull is flying is kind of neat.

When I was in high school we ate lunch outside on the open area grass. There was a big problem with seagulls diving down and stealing lunch bags. They would just dive in, grab the bag and fly off.

They do something totally different to Miatas. Especially when the top is down.

it is the meth head bears that you should worry about. Also, the bear calvary. If you see the bear calvary, you are SO screwed.
