Watch live hummingbirds drink from your face

Yep. It’s real.

The inventor is a man from California’s Humboldt County. You sit outside with this on your head, and hummingbirds drink from the tube coming out from between your eyes. It costs $80 and you can get it from heatstick.com, the most professionally designed website ever. Here’re some tips on how to get birds to eat off your face:

Using and enjoying the feeder is a two step process.
The first is to acquaint the hummingbirds with the
feeder. We set an old can of paint on a small shelf
on the side of the barn and slipped the feeder onto
the can. It wasn’t long before the hummingbirds found
it, and after a little searching, found the feeding
station. Then we let them get familiar with the
feeder for a few days. Finally we set a chair next
to the shelf, removed the feeder from the can,
slipped it on and waited. One never forgets the first
time a hummingbird suddenly arrives at the feeder
right in front of your eyes.

Awesome. I actually invented something like this. It’s the wild lion feeder mask, and it’s a steak with two eye-holes poked into it. You lay out in the sand in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park with this on your face, and usually in less than an hour, Kenya’s mane-less male lion (the one featured in the movie “The Ghost in the Darkness”) will find you and eat right from your face. Results vary, however, as sometimes they devour the person wearing the mask also. But, you get to experience this right up close like you never would otherwise!
