Deathfrogg: CapnBlues: what is it with the mentally ill and cats?


Good question. I lived for a time as a teenager in a neighborhood with several of the kids around me being obviously very psychotic people. They hated cats. Hated them to the point where two of them, twin brothers, would hunt cats with small nets just to torture them to death. It took over a year for people to figure out why all the neighborhood cats were vanishing and what those guys were doing going around the neighborhood with bundles of fishing net. Both those dudes are serving Federal life sentences. Another one, cops daughter, who happened to be a serious hottie, would drive up on peoples lawns to run over a cat. She's coming up on the end of a 150 month stint in Purdy.

Mountlake Terrace Washington, the crazy/christian white trash armpit of the Seattle urban area. Why my folks chose that town I will never understand.


Some of the kids I knew from elementary through high school hate this inexplicable raging hatred for cats that I never understood. It wasn't enough to say, "I'd rather have a dog." No, they laughed when they heard about the cat that was hit at my bus stop just as my bus was pulling up or when they heard about people torching black cats on Halloween.

That the kids in your story are or have served prison time is no surprise.

Project Pooch works with teens in the 'youth center'. Having the responsibility of caring for and training a dog can make an amazing difference in someone's life. The dogs are adopted out once the training is done. The guy who had Boss Bailey taught him things most greyhounds never learn. It took a great deal of persistence on the guy's part. He's a vet assistant now.

Anorexic people give me the heebie jeebies. Yeah i don't necessarily like to see a 500 lb. landwhale chowing down on 5 Big Mac meals either, but they don't creep me out like the skeleton people do.

I had a friend who was anorexic. No one could figure out why she wore baggy, long shirts and pants even in winter. Then she was in a wedding and forced into a dress so everyone saw. It was sad. Her parents forced her into rehab and luckily it worked. Now she owns a cupcake shop and I swear is the healthiest looking baker out there. She still exercises 2 hours a day, so my guess is she samples all day long.

I think all of these he-man cat-haters are are just tiny-pecker drips trying to prove that they are ruff-tuff Sergeant Rock Howling Commandos. This is a normal front put up by self-loathing sissies ashamed that they secretly like to dress up in pink lace and prance around the truck stop. So, they hate cats, because, you know, cats did something to them or are somehow to blame for something or other. Being neurotic is a curse, I guess.

Back when I had cats, we never allowed them outside. Had one turn up with a BB gun wound to the mouth one day so we closed the door to the outside world forever. Cats were healthier, happier, and of course SAFER.

I have no doubt there are psychotic freaks like your Twins all over the country harvesting torture victims for their sick fantasies. I can't see letting an innocent & trusting animal that I love out to roam the evil world...

Farabor: I'm just shaking my head at a British newspaper insisting on using the old form mixed weight scale of stones/pounds. I mean, really.... I thought the Brits were on SI now, and Americans don't use stones as a metric...so who the fark uses stones/lbs anymore?


It's perfectly simple:

Height and weight are measured in metres and kilograms, unless it's a person's height or weight, then we use stones and feet. Liquid is measured in litres, unless it's beer or milk, then we use pints. Distance is in miles. Speed is in mph. Clothes sizes are in inches. For a large area (similar to the American Rhode Island) we used to use the Wales; this has largely been replaced by the Belgium.

Strangely, there are a few small areas that the UK hasn't gone metric on yet, en masse. The kids have, and anyone under 25 has, mostly, but a few small holdouts still exist...

Stones is one of them. I don't really "get" what a pound is (I think it's about half a kilo..), and I have no idea how many pounds in a stone there are, I'm guessing 12 or some shiat like that. But I truly don't care. I know that 9 stone = bad, and 15stone = bad, and somewhere in the middle is good...

On the other hand, I measure my own weight in kilos, primarily. And I drink litres of cola/water etc. But oddly, a 500ml can of cider is just right, but I do like a pint (slightly less I believe). I have no clue what units you'd use in old-timey to subdivide a pint, and I've heard of gallons (but I have no clue how many pints go into them. 12 again?).
Also, we sell petrol & diesel by the litre, but travel by the mile/mph.
We farked up metrication a bit. Still, not as bad as the US. How's that going for yer?

Use Google to convert for you.
For example enter "miles per hour in light years per nanosecond" sans the quotes and you get :
1 miles per hour = 4.72531745 × 10-26 light years per nanosecond

Try telling that to the cat!

Mine at least have figured out "I can jump up on the sink, but I can't go wandering down towards the stove." So they stay right on that edge in front of the kitchen sink. Unless I'm using the stand mixer, then they sit on the island railing to see what I'm doing. Apparently one day I'm going to make tuna fish cupcakes.

Do you have a pet in the house? Any kind of pet? Whether it gets on the counter or not? If so, you'd fail the health inspection routinely done at restaurants. A little dirt or cat poop or dog poop from time-to-time is probably good for your immune system - keeps it on its toes. Relax.

It's just a simple discipline issue. The first few times they tried it, I shooed them off. Now they know they're not allowed up there, so they don't even try anymore.

Good question. I lived for a time as a teenager in a neighborhood with several of the kids around me being obviously very psychotic people. They hated cats. Hated them to the point where two of them, twin brothers, would hunt cats with small nets just to torture them to death. It took over a year for people to figure out why all the neighborhood cats were vanishing and what those guys were doing going around the neighborhood with bundles of fishing net. Both those dudes are serving Federal life sentences. Another one, cops daughter, who happened to be a serious hottie, would drive up on peoples lawns to run over a cat. She's coming up on the end of a 150 month stint in Purdy.

Well, poorly. We sell milk and gasoline in gallons (and half gallons... and quarts and pints for cream), Soda in both ounces and liters, depending on the size. So cans are in oz, smaller bottles are in oz (16 or 20)-- but bigger bottles are 2 liters. Why? Who the hell knows.

But we're solid(ly not metric) on distance (all feet, yards and miles) and weight (pounds, oz, tons). But it really doesn't matter what system you use, as long as there's some consistency. Is 5280 really that hard of a number to remember? 32 and 212? Not really. I happen to know I'm 1.854 meters tall, but only because chinese grad students ask me that all the time.

Also.... what the hell good is a "Stone" as a unit of measure? I often need to describe something that weighs between 6 and 7 kilos (or 14lbs). So we need a special name for it. And we need a special name for something that weighs between 19 and 20 kilos. We'll call it a Rhode Island.
