From the corner of my eye, I though the little bird was a scotch brite pad
i would get you the moon if i could but until then enjoy this fake gold
Government drones love washing machines. It is known.
Birds aren’t real
It is known
Seriously, who in their right mind thought it was a good idea? More expensive and less durable. I hope anybody reading this avoids them if they're thinking of getting one.
I think they meant to include this 🥇
And invisible too
these “i wish i could gild you” comments are so annoying
Um... We are already here.
Lol the spinnies killed me. I want a birb.
Ah yes, the infamous two legged, winged, Scotch Brite pads with beaks.
I saw you at Rudy’s, you were very high
Why are you browsing Reddit out of the corners of your eyes???
I didn't notice the lid at first, i thought he was gonna fall in 😅
Not gonna lie, if my washing machine had a clear glass lid I'd probably be mesmerized by it too.
I have this exact washing machine and can confirm that I have indeed stared into it for an embarrassing amount of time.
I bet it's because you were just making sure it didn't have an uneven load. UE ugh..
Actually, the first 5-10 minutes of the cycle are a 'sensing' phase where it determines if everything is distributed evenly enough to not shake the whole thing apart during the spin cycle.
The staring was just me being hypnotized because I'm a birdbrain
this went full circle
So did the birb
Sometimes when you stare into the machine, something stares back.
We all float in here......
So have I. My washer, not yours.
Yeah. So, I did not know I needed a washing machine with a glass lid. But, after watching the GIF a few times, it’s apparent that I do.
"Woulda look at that. Huh? Oh dear. Wait. Is that? She movin? Where u go? Hol up. Is this? Wow. There. Ha! Turn there?! She spin? She spin! She spinnin! Ho! HoooooooOOOOOOOOO! She spinnin! She spi.........oh dear. I dun dizzied myself."
This reminded me of an old Joe Cartoon video with a frog in a blender...
Especially if you were as small as that bird.. Or you were standing on a enormous washing machine
In Scandinavia, front loaded washing machines with clear glass is the norm. I have one right in front of me when I sit on the toilet. Pretty mesmerizing, and entertaining if you forgot your phone.
All that process must have taken awfully short.
...are you okay?
Nice. I haven’t seen a washer with a glass top lid before.
I thought the same thing.
I certainly wouldn’t advise it, but it’s likely the bird could survive. If it was the second spin cycle with clothes already shifted it’s more likely & the bird might even love it. Unfortunately this would defeat having washed all the birdshit off your clothes. M get
Last time they filmed this, they had a parakeets. But the dryer ate one and now they only have one keet left.
Yeah dad go drink yer keet stone light
Lol /r/DadJokes is leaking
Yes. It was a 4-2 for Brazil.
is that really how you spell dryer?
Dang it. Fixed. Thank you
So, you’d say the dryer did a “yeet-the-keet”?
Your awful grammar fucked this joke royally
it’s not fucked up if you read it the way he intended for the joke “a pair of keets”
"had a parakeets"
Yes, that's part of the joke. It's necessary to make it sound like "a pair of".
Obviously, but it's a shit joke if the grammar doesn't work in one instance.
If he typed "a pair of parakeets" it wouldn't be a joke.
But the grammar DOES work, because the wordplay it allows. Changing the grammar changes the punchline to one that’s not as effective in my opinion. But, humor is subjective, and all that.
A little bit of r/zoomies action going on there.
what is this thing that spins below?
i watch as round n round it go!
it makes me wanna do a twirl
as under me the clothing swirl
it's faster now - is gaining traction
now i start my zoomie action!
back n forth with dancing feet -
when will the cycle
I'm here for Mr. Schnoodles.
ahem MISS Schnoodles!
How hard would it have been to type this in human speak?
Not hard at all but the content has to be dumbed down to the level of people who enjoy these garbage poems
That is exactly what these poems are. Now prepare to be downvoted by schnoodle’s army of Facebook moms
Oh well, it’s worth it seeing someone who agrees! I love pets, but not people who seem to think their pets are retarded. If you don’t already go to the sub, I invite you to r/doggohate
Never thought I would see a bird with zoomies
With some cute r/tippytaps
And some r/spinnerywhimmerys
You spin me right round baby, right round...
... like a record
Baby right round round round
I want your looooooooooooooove
All I know is that to me
It must kind of suck to have eyes on the side of your head.
It's essential for peripheral function. You can identify a species by the skeletal structure. The way the eyes rotate to the side ensures maximum protection.
Humans have eyes in the front because it serves us to hunt and gather better. Plus, it makes us kind of attractive to others in our species.
We would find other people attractive if they had eyes on the side of their head if we all had eyes there too...
Yeah, it's not like prey animals look at each other and think "eww, they have eyes on the sides of their head".
Maybe it's why all animals hit it from the back, so they don't have to look at each other's weird faces. Does any other animal besides human do missionary style?
All I'm saying is we don't know for sure.
They hit it from the back because their eyes on the side of their heads makes it so they can still see each other.
This was a very strange comment to just see in my inbox without context.
I can’t speak to what they were referencing, but there’s a belief that our perception of beauty has impacted our evolution. The point they made could stand if it were about more fine tuned changes in the positions—not generally about having eyes on the sides or on the front.
Not if you constantly have to watch out for predators trying to sneak up on you. Eyes on the side of the head allow for a fantastic field of view covering almost 360 degrees for some animals.
I'll admit I was pretty mesmerized when I got a washing machine like this. Stared at it for a good long while. I still call my wife over to see it when it turns the bed sheets into a pancake. She doesn't seem to find it as interesting as I do.
Looks like your drone is malfunctioning
Caique’s are hilarious
That term is offensive
The name of the bird or the word hilarious?
How dare you?
Lol! So dumb. Look how it tries to... Fireworks! Oh, another one! And again!
He's so fast
What sort of bird is that?
They are a species of Parrots called Caiques.
The caique is a lie.
Caiques, aka the crackheads of the bird world
Crackhead is right. I've got one of these. When the hormonal temper flares, watch the fuck out.
Really mine was the most loving bird you could ask for, let anyone handle it my macaw on the other hand
Oh don't get me wrong, I love my little guy. He's hanging out with me on my desk right now, but he can swing very quickly to Hell Bird if I was wearing the wrong item of clothing when I came into the room. No idea why.
I could watch the lil fella doing that for days
Please please please please be careful. My moms sweet baby made her way into the dryer to snuggle the warm clothes and suffocated :(
“Oh God Janet, is that my white blankey in with the darks?? Oh no, oh no. Where’d it go? Save it Janet!!!”
Mixing white and colored garments is only a problem when you use hot water. If you use cold, which works for whites now due to advances in soap and washer tech, there's nothing wrong with mixing them.
How do i go about owning a bird like this? I want to but i dont know where to start
You don’t want a bird. Trust me. It is like owning a 2 year old that will stay two for as long as it lives (decades) and can yell far louder when it doesn’t have your complete undivided attention.
I do love birds but they make so much noise. You might be reading this and think it can't be all that bad, right? Just play with them a lot and they won't be so loud?
Well, lots of attention does help with the angry bird yelling, but they do a lot of cheerful yelling too. They get so excited that the sun is rising, or that the TV is on, or that you're talking on the phone, or whatever and they just want to be part of it.
Birds are cute and fun but you should only get one if you actually like bird yelling.
I want a parrot sooo much but I don't think it's right to keep birds as pets.
Feed a wild crow some french fries and you'll get all the perks of bird friend while also allowing him to be free
Good for you! Sometimes, loving something from afar is the best thing for the object of your affection.
As a bird haver, yes, they can be challenging, but they are also magically awesome if you have the right temperament. There are times when you feel like you're truly communicating with them, which is a rare thing in a pet.
Look for a parrot rescue in your area and see if you can meet some of the birds and talk to staff about what having a pet parrot entails.
Research. Research a ton. It's not like owning a cat or dog. There's so much that goes into these buggers.
Birds are unique but do have differences between breeds. I recommend a budgie, cockatiel, or green cheek conure, but research all the positives and negatives of different bird breeds to see what fits in your household. I wanted a bird that was mostly quiet, cuddly and friendly, so went with a green cheek conure. Caiques like this are hyperactive crack heads but they're hilarious.
There's so much that can kill a bird. Seriously. Do you use non stick pans? Hairspray? Candles? All have to go. Everything you own has to be natural, no chemicals, and not affect the air much. Even the freedom to walk outside is hard without fears she'll fly right out.
Birds are social animals, so need to be around a companion all the time. You basically become their mate. My bird is only in her cage when I'm not home or we are all asleep, for her own safety. Birds can get sick and even hurt themselves if they become depressed.
And they are time consuming! You'll learn all sorts of ways to save time with cleaning and preparing fresh chop for them to eat. But they'll destroy your house, being messy animals that love to chew everything.
If you still want a bird, and did your research, you'll want to find a good cage first (preferably with a seed guard... Seeds are bad for birds but the guard is useful) with plenty of toys and perches. Take careful note of bar spacing... My bird almost hurt herself because she could squeeze through the bars. Research avian vets in your area, research warning signs of sickness. Birdify your house. Be wary if you have other pets, birds are prey animals.
You can look into rescues, but if you never owned a bird, I would suggest reputable breeders. Good breeders are very knowledgeable, and hand raise their babies to make them easier to manage. Rehomed animals may have difficulties and birds are already overwhelming. I get giving a bird a home but it is better to get experience and knowledge to avoid the bird going back to the shelter. A bird from a good breeder should be healthy, have good genetics, and have less behavioral problems. They attach to you quickly since they aren't mourning their previous owner's disappearance. Breeders also tend to be cheaper than pet stores.
If you want a bird that is less demanding and clingy, try finches, if you don't mind noise, or a pair of doves or pigeons.
Birds seriously change your life, they're a huge commitment for 30+ years depending on the breed of parrot. I can't wear earrings or nail polish. I have to be careful around anything that crinkles like a plastic bag because she hates the sound. I have to deal with bloody lips and fingers at times. I have to be careful with everything used in the house because chemicals go through vents and everything uses Teflon (use ceramic pans). Luckily I don't have to deal with noise like majority of parrot owners, but I had a cockatiel once that just made beeping noises and I had to rehome her before we all went insane.
All that said, I love my bird and she makes me smile and laugh and she gives me kisses when I'm sad. If you're okay with all the preparation and hard work, they really do become the little sunshines to brighten your day.
Beautifully said, the little birdy is lucky to have a you as their mom 😊
My thoughts exactly, except, replace bird with washing machine
First you take an animal that can fly. Literally rip across the sky in complete freedom and then you put it in a tiny cage.
You definitely don't want one of -these- birds. The shrieking is incessant and they will absolutely let you or any visitor know they are hormonal when they go Mr. Hyde on your ass and try to shred your face off. My wife's bird HATES me when I walk into the house with my brown coat on and will absolutely try and murder me given the chance. Also throw out every candle, non-stick pan, incense, perfumes, etc. These give off fumes that are all toxic for the bird. have fun flipping your entire life upside down. Caiques need. No. NEED attention and companionship for hours and hours of every day, or they get moody and self-destructive.
No one ever said dinosaurs made good pets.
Look on youtube for “(parrot species) screaming” to have an idea of the different noise levels. Screaming and being vocal is going to be natural to them, for the most part it is normal even though it can get annoying. Theres pro trainers on youtube that can go more into the specifics of parrot behaviors. Keep that in mind!
Oh and they poop a lot. And you have to give up a lot of things.
If you haven't had birds before you should probably visit with some first. Like someone else mentioned, try and find a parrot rescue and see what you think. Parrots are not like they show in the videos where they're always doing funny stuff or whatever. Caiques especially have a reputation for being clowns but they're highly energetic and temperamental.
Things parrots can, and often, do:
I'm not saying don't keep a bird - a rescue bird, there's no reason to ever buy one - but really research them, what they need, and get some actual face time interacting with them.
What kind of bird is this? I saw one at petco and he was so quirky with so much personality. Its sad that he was $600 especially when you know they most likely come from shady places
He's a caique! They need a LOT of attention and love.
And love to wrastle
And love to whistle
I used to flip mine upside-down and tickle his belly. He loved it.
The only good reason to get a glass top washer.
I mean, not really. Nice to be able to check on the clothes and it’s not like it’s inherently more money.
Well, front loaders have glass doors for ages, and I heard the performance is better. That said, here (germany) I never have seen a top loader in my life time, so I can't compare them directly.
I have a modern top loader and it’s the best washer I’ve ever used. At least double the size of any other washer I’ve used and spins the clothes just fine.
I have the exact one in the gif and I love it. like $830 new, but it was a return to my local Lowe's because the old lady that bought it overloaded it so it'd stop and flash UE, and she thought it was bust and returned it.
So, I got it for $415.
Lowe's returns are awesome if you make sure the appliance wasn't returned for something horrible.
Like my double oven glass-top stove. One of the oven door windows got busted in transit to the store, so they replaced it on arrival. Can't sell as new and pristine, so $700 for a $1400 oven.
My apartment has the cheapest, very botton of the line appliances, and even my washer tells me what part of the cycle it's on. And anyway, I'd think that a glass top for the reason you stated is more enabling someone's obsessive behavior than it is being actually useful.
They’re useful to see if it’s spinning unbalanced or something but other than that it’s probably just for design.
This reminds of my cat seeing snow for the first time yesterday.

"No. It's necessary."
I used to have some lovebirds. They're cute little murderous bastards.
not going to lie, when I was a kid I put something in the washing machine lid so I could watch it while it was open. I would stand there for 30-60 minutes just watching it.
I really really want a see-through lid washing machine again. maybe someday.
I need to comment so I can post stuff 👍👌
He a little confused but he’s got the spirit.
Amazing that the best post on reddit only has 7.2k upvotes
It's videos like these that make it impossible for me to choose between owning an Indian Ringneck or a Caique
The bird is mesmerized by the machine and we’re mesmerized by the bird.
That’s a r/partyparrot if I ever saw one!
That looks like a really cheep dryer.
Who put meth amphetamines in the bird seed?
Are those lines on the lid defrosters?
After the bird gets accustomed to the lid, take the glass away. You must teach it not to trust, you must teach it to become more aware. That is the only way they will learn Hamon.
Give him the scritches
I thought this little guy was gonna fall into the washer. Then I remembered we’re in 209 now and clear top washers are a thing
Anyone know what "diamond glass" is? It's on the lid on my washing machine too. Can't think of a reason why they would make the type of glass used in the lid a selling point, is there an upside of having "diamond glass" or is it just marketing bs?
The only thing I find when I search for it is bongs. Maybe joint marketing between LG and a bong company. Seems plausible.
So people don't not buy your washer because they're afraid of breaking the glass. Washer lids tend to become a work surface of sorts.
"Diamond Glass" must be stronger than normal glass, right? Even though it's most likely just regular tempered glass.
Sounds like just marketing to me. Trying to give you reassurance that it won't shatter all over your clothes.
So you can see how bad the cylinder shakes to determine if you need to pause and redistribute the load before it gives you a UE error later in the wash.
Has anyone noticed the static that starts in the machine?
When you stare into the void
What is lol?????????
All write "lol"?
Just in case you're being serious, I'll answer. "lol" is an acronym for "laughing out loud"
This causes what is known as "Spinning Load Syndrome" which leads to a certain type of avian schizophrenia which causes a bird to eliminate it's own offspring. The constant torture directed towards the avian community is horrifying. Please help spread awareness about these issues before it's too far gone.
It's that or it's displaying a classic fencing response and will die shortly.
I own this washer... I love this washer, am also 32.
I’m mesmerized by that washing machine as well!
The bird might think it’s in a tornado or something and it’s being swallowed up
Shit, I'M mesmerized by this washing machine. Cool shit.
This birds been contaminated with the spiral.
You misspelled birb
excuse me but the correct name for animal like these is actually „Birb“
Read as birb
"If you do this, it feels like you're running at an incredible rate if speed!"
Can birds get dizzy?
Probably, but they also see at a much higher "refresh rate" than humans. He's probably having no trouble tracking whatever he was looking at in there, even at full spin speed.
I kinda fell a little bad for him
Me when I’m spiraling with anxiety
"It feels like I'm running at an incredible rate, Harry!"
The way this bird started running against the spinning motion reminded me of trying to swim against the current after you started a whirlpool in a circle shaped pool on a nice summer day.
So fucking precious
I never upvote. But now I couldn't help myself.
I love seeing curiosity in animals.
I feel his excitement!
oh my gosh. He baby
Would love to see a cat on that lid.
bird.exe does not compute
God I love birds
In fairness, if I had a glass top washing machine I'd be mesmerized by it as well.
It would've been absolutely priceless if he tipped over from the dizziness
You know, it isn't legal to fold washing machines up like that
yo what bird is this?
Listen here ya lil shit
"You humans put your feathers in this device? And it S P I N S ? !"
Interstellar Theme plays...
When I was a wee lad, I figured out how to watch the spin cycle with the lid open.
Sometimes I still do nowadays since I have the lid relay electrically bypassed.
I own a dog and two cats all three very friendly. Someone plz tell me why I shouldn’t get a bird like this. What are some of the cons
its how i like to spend my free time..lol
Yeah, I feel like this fits this sub
Can you buy this kind of birb in CA US? If so for how much?
What a little personality!
That ain't mesmerized. That's pissed as fuck. Notice the "hump back"? That's parrot for "fuck you".
Probably thinks it’s going into another dimension
Wonder what the bird's reaction will be when the machine shakes goes UE (uneven) lol
"It feels like you're running at an incredible rate, Harry!"
The drones are malfunctioning r/birdsarentreal
"Wait wait wait... this is moving... but I'm... and it's... I'm confused"
This doggo deserves the medal of Honor.
Maybe It’s trying to figure out if it’s a mating dance or smt
To be fair washing machines are quite mesmerizing.
Are they able to get dizzy?
I am this bird
If you could hear the little bird in it's little bird voice saying: "WTF, WTF, WTF, WTF...." So lovely.
This needs some Interstellar music
I have that exact washing machine. It's great.
Put that little birdy in a spin cycle!
I didn't notice that it was a glass top and thought he was about to jump in
This synced with my music too well
I legit want a whole channel of just this bird reacting to things
Ascend, little one.
You should be careful I’m pretty sure birds are vulnerable to chemical smells and it can kill them
Even birb approves of direct drive LG washer
Never wanted a before this year. This video and the do your dance video showed me how personality a bird can have.
The controls on that washing machine look like Darth Vader's bathroom.
🎶 I'm walking on sunshine 🎶
Doesn’t everyone do this when the washing machine does that?
Dae. Notice he stays on the lines of the glass?
That was so cute when he started turning in circles. Ahhhh.
I’m the hero in the storm!
that’s scary it looks like a black hole in outer space
Oh wow, what's this? Oh wow! Look it's moving! What the! Wow! Like this and this and this! Wow! What the fuck, what the fuck, what the fuck this is cool!
He’s sure having fun
My budgie bites me hard and it hurts but I still love her so much
Bruh, ive got that exact same washer
watching birds showing curiosity is so fucking entertaining
the bird's reaction
I expected it to pull out a cane and a top hat and start dancing.
Put him inside next time... For maximum effect
In veterinary news today, a sma bird had the worlds 1st technology induced break down!
Have you ever seen such wonderful splendor
I have a ciaque, they can be fun to watch as they think they are 10 feet tall and not afraid of anything.
He stared into the abyss and lived to tell about it
Put a mirror in there
My old washer was so messed up that it basically jumps around when you start it. I’m pretty sure lil birdie here would be spooked.
I thought he had an abnormally large beak at first
this little birb
She’s just a little girl calm down.🙄
I think someone wants to go in on the spin cycle, go on. Give him what he wants
I too am also mesmerized by this particular washing machine.
Is there a subreddit just for bird gifs?
I think I want a birb. I met a super cool one a few weeks ago and ever since, I keep seeing all these cool birds on Reddit too. I think it’s a sign.
I love how he just starts spinning with it!
To be honest I never know if they’re amazed or just very anxious
Come on tars
me too. I am birb now.
