Researchers Claim Cats Understand Physics
I knew it!

I don’t trust them as far as I can throw them...and I can throw them pretty far. Angel

I love that photo!

I didn't read the article, but I think a lot of animals "understand" physics (as in basic mechanics) intuitively. I was just reading about peregrine falcons this morning (because I thought I might have seen one on the way to work -- it was more likely a red-tailed hawk), and it said they can dive at over 200 mph! To be able do that and avoid cratering (I dunno, maybe sometimes they don't avoid it) would involve some sort of understanding of physics.

Yeah. I think it must be true. My cat says "Jump!" and I say "How high?!"

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Researchers Claim Cats Understand Physics
I think proposing that cats "understand" physics is like saying homing pigeons understand radar, or fish understand fluid dynamics.

BTW, cats don't have owners; they have servants. Tongue

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
