Been doing an experiment lately.... back in Nov., a female kitten walked into my house and would not go away. I would say we adopted her but it was the other way around. Anyway, she is about a year old now, full grown and generating a surprisingly amount of....., er, 'product' in the litter box.

Now where I live, we have two 'garbage' containers, one for <real> garbage, and one for recycle. Normally, we have been putting Phoebe's..... output into the trash container. But a while ago, i started to put it into the recycle container out of curiosity as to whether or not they could recycle that stuff. I expect it to be turned back into cat food.

Has anyone noticed any recycled cat food for sale anywhere? Just wondering if it was working or not, assuming of course that those no good garbage men (or whatever the P.C. term is for those folks) are not stealing it for their own gain.

so that's why my bottled water tastes like crap lately...argggg...

Kenny started the trend, wayyyy back, it was called 'cheesing'...
I think the garbage men 'refuse collectors' have been distilling the soaked cat litter... and selling raw product on the streets... for people to get high on...

And this is why we need a face-palm emoticon.....

Watson, the point of the story is humor. It does not matter where I put anything (Easy Boys!), it is the concept that is funny. I believe mammals eating and, er, evacuating, is what is called an irreversible process. So the idea of throwing 'droppings' into any part of a recycle loop becomes humorous because 'it just don't work thata- way'. Sort of like you cannot stuff kittens back where they came from and get sperm and eggs as a result. Again, it just don't a-work that way. But amusing when it passes through one's mind.....

And no, I did not put cat litter in the recycle bin, at least not much, just the removed cat leavins'.  ;) ;D

And there are far worse things I can think of to put in a recycle bin than a sealed bag of cat 'leavings'.   :rotflmao:

And speaking of the things that generate cat leavings, I have more of them now. Went out to see the four feral kittens living in my garage and Mama cat moved them yet again but when I found them, I only found Mama and three kittens, not four. But the kittens were scattered so I think I might have interrupted Mama moving them. ?? Anyway, the kittens are just 4 weeks old, we planned on grabbing them tomorrow and bringing them into the house but tonight I found out they can run. So I made the decision and caught them, or two of them anyway, and they are now in my laundry room. The third ran behind some stored wood where I could not get to it and I have not seen the fourth. I will go out there several times tomorrow and see if I can round up the other one, or hopefully, two kittens. The two I have are not interested in kitten kibble (soaked in water to make it 'mush') so we might have to go out and get a bottle and formula or one of us will have to get a set of breasts working (again in my wife's case, mine have never been used). Probably the bottle I suppose....

I am fairly large (6'2", 240+) and it was all I could do to hang onto that second kitten; it spit the whole time I was trying to pick it up, scratched and bit me continuously and jumped out of my hands several time (I caught it mid- air repeatedly) until I finally got the little fella under control. Must be a Tasmanian Devil breed of domestic cat.



The fierce one is the smaller one toward the right.  :rotflmao:

MOB's story above reminds me...

5 years or so ago my wife and I went to visit my oldest son in Tennessee. My son has a very large fenced in backyard and he was keeping chickens back there. I think that he had around 12 chickens. We had our 3 small dogs with us and they had never seen chickens before. My son wanted to see how our dogs would react to the chickens and he wanted me to turn them loose in the backyard and see what happened.

I suggested that we turn the dogs loose one at a time instead. My son has two large dogs and they never bothered the chickens and the chickens were used to the dogs.

Bosco, our mini Dachshund, was first. I thought for sure that she would go after the chickens but all she did was walk over to them and gave 'em a sniff, that was it.

Agnes, half Dachshund half Yorky, was next. She charged the chickens at top speed but when the chickens didn't run or show any fear she lost interest.

Sookie, Agnes' sister, was last. Sookie took one look at the chickens and made a bee line for the largest chicken. She grabbed that chicken by the neck and shook it for all she was worth. The chicken was screaming and feathers were flying everywhere. Sookie was having a BIG time! My son yelled out, "oh no, my chickens!" and ran to his chicken's rescue. I was laughing but ran along and pulled Sookie off of his chicken. The chicken was ok but we had to keep Sookie away from them after that.    :)

Hedy Lamarr, not to be confused with Hedley Lamarr, had an invention that revolutionized communications and here I thought that she was just good to look at.


Her invention (WWII) helped enable Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth.   It all started in WWII and torpedoes not hitting their targets.   She wanted to help and thought that radio guided torpedoes would help the US have a better hit rate than the normal ones which were shoot and forget.  She thought that if you could steer them to their targets using radio frequencies that changed in sync with a receiver in the torpedo could eliminate the enemy being able to jam.  It was kinda like a player piano tape in that the notes changed via the holes.


Eventually her invention got to be used by the military in the 50's and from there, that idea has been applied to current communications today.


She also thought that airplanes were too slow and came up with some designs to fix that.  Howard Hughes thought that she was a genius.


Unfortunately for Hedy, she neither received any money nor recognition for what she came up with until very late in life. The recognition, that is.   She never received any money for those inventions.


Thank you, Hedy.

Unfortunately, that seems to happen a lot with innovators and inventors.  Tesla and Touring both immediately come to mind.

Yes, a beautiful woman. And her claim is that that got in the way of her life for most of her life. She would have preferred to be more intellectual but her physical beauty prevented anyone from taking her seriously.

Then again, her heyday was a very different time and generation. One of the most intelligent, if not THE most intelligent peers I have had the pleasure to work with was a young woman. We used to work quite closely together; I could provide some design, conceptual help to her and she would handle all of those nasty, obnoxious math problems involving identities in trigonometry; I can remember about four of them while I think she knew ALL of them (not possible but I never saw a problem that stumped her either). But I have no doubt that she too would have been minimized if she happened to be born in the 1910's as well as Hedy Lamar.

Dancing FBI agent who accidentally shot someone is arrested

https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/12/us/dancing-fbi-agent-arrest/index.html

(CNN)The FBI agent who unintentionally shot someone while dancing in a Denver bar turned himself in to police on Tuesday and is awaiting charges.

The agent, identified as 29-year-old Chase Bishop, is being held at a Denver detention center for investigation of second degree assault, pending formal charges from the District Attorney's Office, according to Denver Police Department spokesman Jay Casillas.

Bishop was showing off his moves in the center of a dance circle at Mile High Spirits bar on June 2 when he launched into a back handspring. During the move, a firearm fell out of his waistband holster and onto the floor, Denver police said.

He moved to pick the weapon up and unintentionally fired one shot, police said. Bishop then put the gun back in his pants and walked away with his hands up.

One person was struck in the lower leg and was expected to survive, police said.

The arrest comes a week after video of the incident went viral and raised questions as to why Bishop was not initially taken into custody.

An attorney for the victim told CNN affiliate KMGH that the bullet hit the victim's main artery and that he could have bled to death, if not for a person who applied a tourniquet to the victim's leg.

The District Attorney's Office as well as Denver FBI did not comment on the incident, citing a pending investigation.

Authorities did not initially identify the FBI agent because he was not arrested at the time, Denver police community resource officer Marika Putnam said. Denver police said last week that the agent could face possible charges pending the results of lab testing to determine if alcohol was a factor.

Last week, the Mile High Spirits team released a statement on Facebook saying they looked forward to speaking with the FBI to learn more about why the agent was armed in the bar.

"It is shocking that the only shooting to ever occur at our establishment came about as a result of an FBI agent entering our distillery tasting room carrying a loaded firearm without our knowledge, in violation of our rules," the bar said.

The bar also said the patron who was shot is welcome to complimentary drinks forever at the bar.

Retired FBI supervisory special agent James A. Gagliano wrote for CNN that he understood the need for a young agent to blow off steam. Still, he wrote that he was shocked at the agent's poor judgment.

"This agent should have taken better care to conceal and secure his weapon," Gagliano wrote. "Even before he lost control of it, you can clearly see the weapon's outline against his shirt in the video. That's an egregiously unacceptable concealment effort.

"And knowing he was armed, he may have elected to avoid the dance-off."



Looks like Chase will be pursuing another carrier path.

I saw that. What a dumb series of mistakes.

1) does not use a proper holster to secure a loaded weapon with no safety or safety off
   not sure what it was but if something like a Glock, carry with a holster that covers the trigger guard
   and does not accidentally release the weapon

2) decides on the back flip dancing move while carrying

3) when he picks it up, puts his finger on the trigger.

I expect more from and FBI agent that is supposed to be a pro.
