You want a lovely little pet bird, but you feel so bad keeping him in a cage that you think you won't buy him after all. Solution: The Pet Bird Wind Tunnel. It's a tiny little fan that creates a continuous gust of air sufficient for your birdie to fly into but not get knocked over. That way, he can fly and fly and keep his little wings strong without getting out of the cage and soiling your silk charmeuse upholstery.

       I'm all for it. Birds have been blessed with the gift of flight. Humans, on the other hand, have been cursed with an subconsious desire to ruin anything beautiful (i.e. keep a bird in a fuckin' cage).

       Better than a caged bird, worse than a free bird. But at least it's overcomplicated. [+]

       Excellent idea - it is verily the analogy of a conventional hamster wheel for hamsters, and a conventional waterfall for pet salmon.

       Consul: maybe this is implemented by tying the cage to the back of a car?
DrCurry, Feb 08 2006
  

       Wouldn't it take him off guard when you turn it on? Also, the cage has to be big enough for him to flap his wings. That's a pretty large cage.

       What if you turned it on, accidentally set to 'suck' instead of 'blow'?

       [Ian] Since we all know birds are incapable of turning around, He will have to try his best to fly backwards.

       True...   

       ...but dogs can look up!

       //incapable of turning around// eh?   

       pigeons can turn their heads 360 degs

       That's incredibly hot.

       I used to take my parrot on the go-ped just to let it spread out its wings out.

       Someone told me once that with a bit of effort and assistance pigeons can turn their heads 3 or 4 full revoultions.
Captain_Ignorant, Mar 01 2007
  

       That's revoulting.   

       Oh well. They are, after all, demon-possesed sky rats.   

       With "some assistance" I could probably do the same.
