    Nope. Birds are just cool and interesting.
    The living world in general is.
    Sometimes there's no deeper meaning than "this is fascinating."

    Those are the cuckoo birds if I recall correctly. Nature can be so metal and cruel and I like reading about the myriad of ways it can do so.
    Proud to announce, as Poll Committee Chairperson, Community Awards Director (under the big Awards Director, Anton), and 'Shroom Director, that starting today I will merging all three community institutions into one massive project entitled 'Poollwards Comstaffittee. This new team begin work to reformat the old 'Shroom archives using the poll archive template system, and we will allow you to vote in Awards-style polls to dictate the process.

    Furthermore, we will not stop there. Our merger complete, we will have the power to initiate immediate mergers with the Forum Mods, followed by the Wiki Staff, followed by the Chat Ops. All who resist will be assimilated by force. We will come for you next. All will be made one, and one will be the whole, and the whole will be named the Super Mario Boards.

    Except for GBAToad, because, ewww, who wants the Mafia Hosts Guild in the assimilated Mario Boards?

    We will begin our assimilation shortly, beggining first, of course, by subjugating the date on today's calendar.
    Hey, I made an unofficial quiz about this month's issue of The Shroom! Try taking it here. Notice that you have to put your answers in all lowercase. If you get a question wrong, it'll give you a hint where to find it after you submit it! There's probably a bunch of bugs and problems because I made it on a whim, but why not test your knowledge of the issue?

    Great, then that technically increases my score to- you know what, I'm not going to post it here because uh, I don't want the people who got a lower score than mine to feel bad, haha yeah that's it

    Hey Pitohui, just a thought, but maybe each month, each writer could send you (or a designated organizer) a question regarding their section and this could be an actual thing. That would be fun.

    I made this project on a whim when a random thought struck me this morning, but I'm going to plan it out a bit more and eventually present a formal idea. We'll see what comes of it. I think the structure you're suggesting could be fun!
    The new NIWA member, the Xeno Series Wiki, represents all of its affiliated sites with Japanese characters.



    Fittingly, the Mario Wiki uses the character for "kinoko", meaning "mushroom".
    There's this concept of the "arrow of time," right? It boils down to this notion that, according to physical equations - to greatly, greatly oversimplify the topic - there's really no reason to expect that there should be a difference if time runs forward or if time runs backwards. Yet in our everyday reality, there clearly is an arrow of time. It clearly moves in a linear direction, always forward, never backwards. Why should this be? Excellent question.

    The point is, arrows are complicated, especially super ones. Arrows? Complicated. Require math to understand. Lead to strange effects. Requires a great deal of money and electricity to investigate the concept of and nature of CPT violation.

    ...for better or worse, I swore my fealty to Ninja Squid.

    You know what isn't complicated? Draq. Draq is a simple alien. He does a simple job, and has simple hopes and dreams. Draq is the man you need right now. He sees things as they are. He's not hard to understand.
    A little over a day and a little under a day! That's what remains for two major events associated with The 'Shroom.

    A little over a day is what you have left if you're interested in posting a campaign in The 'Shroom Director Election. Find the details here. If you have questions about the process, or want to ask the current candidates questions, do so here.

    And a little under a day is how long you have left to come and put your writing skill to use by setting the scene for us in The 'Shroomfest! Come out and support the sunlight by describing your favorite moments under the sun!
    Do you play Minecraft? Have you ever thought about how starkly different that blocky world is under the sunlight versus when it's under the moonlight? If so, consider taking a look here, and make sure to come and support team sunlight in the Shroomfest!
    Hello! My 10 year old son has written a Mario World horoscope and we would like to submit it for publication in the 'Shroom. Is this a possibility that we can discuss with you?

    That is certainly something we can discuss and arrange, yes! Allow me to send you a PM, and we'll discuss it further in there.
    The rooster is crowing. Dawn is breaking. Will you stand with chickens as they signal the return of light to our world?

    Hello, everyone! I just wanted to take a quick moment to announce that I am, with @Ran Mitake, running in the Poll Chairperson Election as candidates to lead the Poll Committee's upcoming eleventh term. Please take a look, and ask questions if you have them. And please, if you have any interest, considering running yourself!
    Are you hoping for a playable Zelda in Breath of the Wild's sequel more than you're hoping for a big role for Ganondorf? If so, you may realize the great qualities of heroic characters! And if you do, they could sure use your support in The 'Shroomfest!
    As long as I'm testing this feature let me make it worth your time by reminding you of the time that Brazil became the metropole of the Portuguese Empire for a time when the royal family fled there during the Napoleonic Wars
