science of play in birds
It is not unknown that corvids use tools for hunting grubs and other invertebrates lodged in trees. But you may not know that they are incredibly playful birds as well. as young ravens will break off twigs, bark and other objects and will play fight other ravens with them. the two birds will “joust” at each other and clack the objects together, as if they were kids playing in a yard.
"Thus [Fingolfin] came alone to Angband’s gates, and he sounded his horn, and smote once more upon the brazen doors, and challenged Morgoth to come forth in single combat. And Morgoth came."
"That was the last time in those wars that he passed the doors of his stronghold, and it is said that he took not the challenge willingly; for though his might was greatest of all things in the world, alone of the Valar he knew fear."

"I don’t know him, Alfred. All these years and I don’t know who he is any more than he knows who I am. How can two people hate so much without knowing each other?”
