11 Things Only Night Owls Will Understand
Business Insider

We all know there are two types of people in this world, those who are up every morning at seven, bright eyed and ready to start the day, and those who are mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey, typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight. If you belong to the latter community, you'll understand these eleven things. If you don't, you most definitely will not.

1. Having the innate ability to fly almost silently and also more slowly in comparison to other birds of prey.

The turkey vulture ain't got nothing on our skills.

2. Turning your head around up to 270 degrees.

Don't you wish you were part of our exclusive club? Head turns for days.

3. Meeting another night owl who is almost 30 years old and saying, "wow, that's really old" because the average life span of an owl of any species is significantly shorter than that.


4. Having disproportionately large eyes in comparison to your skull.

But they're still on fleek, like, every single day.

5. Being unable to move those eyes.

Ocular motor control is for suckers.

6. Having asymmetrical ears.

One ear up and one ear down lets us pinpoint sounds more directly, and find the haters. Watch out.

7. Remembering those awkward years of puberty.


8. Swallowing mice whole.


9. Watching your young cough up the meal you prepared for them and being totally okay with it, because that's perfectly normal for owls.

*hacking sounds*

10. Seamlessly blending into your surroundings with your camouflage feathers.

Haters can't hate what they can't see. And then you jump out at 'em.

11. Never needing nail polish 'cuz your talons look fierce every day.

Yas. Slay. Destroy.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
