    Kitty is as unhappy with the ridiculousness of the debate as I am, I see. :p

    I was just having fun. I didn't have the democrat stuffed animal but would have liked it have it for the picture. I did enjoy the debate last night though.

    I think it is great that we have taken our mortal enemies, the big cats, and have bred them into childlike furry little imps. It is a fitting punishment for all they did to our ancestors.

    My neighbor has a little fraidy cat and also a lot of hummingbird feeders. It's a sweet little cat afraid of people and almost anything that moves, but she likes to talk at people. She'll say 'Hi' to get you to say 'Hi' back repeatedly as if you were having a conversation. That's where the cuteness ends though.

    Sometimes she'll slither up to touch you and get sneezing powder on your slacks. That's why the hummingbirds don't mess with her. Hummingbirds can't afford to get allergies and sneeze. They're so lightweight that it might blow them into a tree or signpost.

    Not from big cats. From a little cat, and not much changed.

    Indeed.

    By the way, this for me triggered a little internet excursion, culminating in the physics of the "falling cat problem". This was the conundrum that baffled scientists for years as to how a cat can always turn round in the air to land on its feet, even though it is not rotating when it starts to fall. This seemed to suggest a violation of conservation of angular momentum.

    The explanation turns (geddit?) out to be that the cat is not a rigid body but can move as a pair of cylinders, and also simultaneously as a single cylinder, as shown in this nice little animation, which shows how conservation of total angular momentum is maintained:Falling cat problem - Wikipedia

    No one suggests the cat calculates these vectors, however. :D
