Staked Out For Buzzards

I’m not sure what these buzzards (vultures? Dammit, Jim, I’m a sadist, not an ornithologist!) are doing here while their intended meals are still alive. I thought carrion birds were supposed to circle and wait for the hot desert winds and lack of water to make carrion out of women (and incidental background men) in peril? But I suppose it’s a fair tossup whether a random pulp cover artist or me knows less about the dining habits of large fantasy-art danger-birds:

What are the logistics of tying somebody to stakes? How deep do the stakes have to be? I realize this is going to depend greatly on how loose the dirt/sand/soil is. I’m just saying, tent stakes ain’t gonna cut it. I just don’t know how realistic this type of bondage is.

Then again, we all know the difference between OTM gags in fiction vs. OTM gags in real life. :-)

See how the ends of the stakes are mashed over like they’ve been hammered hard? Remember every comic book and cartoon circus you’ve ever seen, where the circus guys hammer in the stakes to set up the big-top tents using those huge wooden mallets? That’s how you set a stake for bondage purposes, you hammer it in deep with a big hammer. In hard ground, a hammered stake that’s set even just a foot or two deep is very hard to remove. Given time and strength, if you can get it to wiggle, you can eventually work it back and forth until it comes free; but if it’s hammered deep enough you can’t get some motion, it might as well be a tree.

Perhaps these are not ordinary vultures. The Greek myth of Leda and the Swan comes to mind.

This was very interesting, thank you!
