You can pretty much get checks printed with any fool thing you like these days.

It's still mostly telling me about PPC db stuff, and flat tums for me.

Ceilings need cats, too, btw:

I think it may default to that when it's totally flummoxed.

Zelda, is that your eBookwise 1150 we see on the right side in front of the pillow in post #119? If so, does that mean that it is your cat in the photo? Your hand? Warped minds want to know.

spéciale dédicace for all the warped minds :
eb1150 : mine
hand : mine
cat : sadly, not mine (i wanted to keep her, but my cousin's wife said she wouldn't give her to me. i told her she was being very selfish, and she just replied "i know.").

however, i do also get trapped under the kitteh in the comfort of my own home, by my own cat. behold :

The very few things I've had to kill, I've tried to be quick about it ... except of course for the spawn of demons known as roaches. Actually ... I s'pose I'm quick with them too, but it's only 'case the faster they're dead the better, not out of any sense of sympathy for the vile things.
Yeah, and having been trapped in an avalanche, I can attest to the fact that being frozen and suffocated at the same time is (1) painful, and (2) not as quick as one might hope.

I lasted for the better part of an hour, so they were able to dig me out, however, the freezing part was not my idea of a great way to go. The running out of air part was a little less painful, but not a lot. I think I would have rather not been conscious. So, my sympathies are going to be with the frog in the freezer in this case.

no no, you're thinking of miyatake's children. (and probably all children, in fact). they are heathens. cats are actually very refined, sometimes. just a slight confusion.

ricky, to be faire, first of all cane toads are cold-blooded, so cold temperatures like that will actually send them into a coma (like hibernation in the winter). it's not comparable to your experience at all. second, the problem is rather more complex than it may seem at first glance, since the extremely venomous cane toads are actually a dangerous pest whose exponential population growth is causing havoc in australia's ecosystem (where they are not indigenous ; they were introduced there from south america by some misguided idiots playing god, as is often the case). see here and here for example.

i do not at all intend to prolong this discussion by this post, quite the contrary, i'm hoping to quell some apparent misunderstandings and put the subject to rest permanently. if anyone does want to talk more about cane toads, etc., PLEASE OPEN ANOTHER THREAD so that i can avoid it. thanks.

now let's go back to talking about adorable kittehs, which is a much more pleasant subject.
