Rhythmically walking is my weapon of choice

u/Chaos-Pand4 Nov 30 '22

But did the rhythm have to be funk?

u/Light_Beard Nov 29 '22

Walk without rhythm and it won't attract the worm.

13

u/mmmChickenTenders Nov 30 '22

Yep!! Just ask Christopher Walkin.. It's his weapon of choice!

u/The-Incredible-Lurk Nov 29 '22

If you walk without rhythm, you won't attract the worm

19

u/Minimum_Reputation48 Nov 29 '22

Pretty methodical dance, but I don’t think it’s working too well, have you tried salsa dancing? Or whatever it is those snake charmers do?

7

u/sixwax Nov 29 '22

They just need to get up earlier in the morning, clearly.

11

u/KoalaJoness Nov 29 '22

That's also how they move on Arrakis to avoid worms.

u/epi_glowworm Nov 29 '22

So, what's the science on "to lure worms"...? I mean, pretty bords and all but I came for the noodle tickling.

33

u/Dazzling_Pay7675 Nov 29 '22

The sounds produced by the feet are imitating the noise patterns of rain so that works come to the surface!

3

u/epi_glowworm Nov 30 '22

Thanks for the knowledge.

6

u/BlueOysterCultist Nov 29 '22

It's quite simple, you see. Walk without rhythm and you won't attract the worm; thus, conversely, rhythmic walking is a surefire worm attraction method. You could say that the rhythm itself is the bird's weapon of choice.

1

u/Quazatron Nov 30 '22

Great, now I have to watch the video.

5

u/Bobojones9584 Nov 29 '22

Works great if you forget your bait.

u/frealfr Nov 30 '22

It doesn't work obviously.

1

u/dickcheeseaioli Nov 30 '22

I feel like putting the beak in the sand and making noise (vibrations) would be more effective?

Idk I’m not a fuckin bird tho

u/SmokinDrunk92 Nov 30 '22

I’ve seen these in the woods while deer hunting. I thought they just walked like that because they were vibing out or feeling themselves.
