I was listening to an I Hate Everything video while doing this quiz. I couldn't think of the #2 largest bird and it was killing me. Then in the I Hate Everything video he started talking about how he wouldn't kill a cassowary because he likes birds to much. That was the strangest coincidence that has ever happened to me.
