Gato a mano, with added WEIT

I gotta teach, so this will have to hold you over, and anyway I’m dispirited at the number of apologists for bad Islamic behavior infesting my home.

Apparently this video was made by reader Kevin: it’s a cat video with a special book surprise at 1:41. It’s heartening to see that my authorial efforts can help cats defend themselves.

    That’s also one of Baihu’s favorite games. And, yes: cats are incredibly fast!

    Good performance by Right Hande especially! 😀 Yay for Dexter!

    Yes, I was the “rigger” for Right Hande. He’s always pretty scratched up, as budget limitations mean we couldn’t afford a stunt double.

    Thanks for the cat video, but I am sorry to hear that you are disheartened due to the many Islam apologists. Well, I for one agree with you wholeheartedly: Islam is certainly one of the more pernicious ideologies out there.

      Forgive them, Ceiling Cat, for the apologists know not what they say.

    Totally Off Topic (for this post but not the website) is this recent article which the NZ Herald reblogged from somewhere else:
    “Seeing Jesus on a slice of toast is normal”

    It’s about pareidolia (obviously), and it seems some researchers have concluded that the brain is wired to recognise faces (well, duh).

    Almost more interesting is the link it gives to a Twitter page Faces in Things which has a huge collection of the most unlikely objects which look irresistibly like faces. My favourite is the three flying birds (tries a link:)
