Meanwhile, a century ago, horses fashion included gas masks.

"Passengers on the left side of the aircraft will be able to make out the Gateway Arch which is the tallest man made monument in the Western Hemisphere as well as Missouri's tallest accessible building."

After they tortured you to get your banking passwords, and to learn how to operate can openers.

I already have a problem with the use of Dogs in war (as old a practice as that may be) but to send them into harm's way as disposable cannon fodder? they deserve better.  Use farking robots for that shiat

I'm safe.  I know how to change kitty litter.  Pop said "It's a job skill you'll appreciate when the cats take over.  Not if, but when." Dad then turned to the Persian and said "And you'll do a much better job than we ever did."

Wow, some countries were really late in updating their military doctrine, weren't they. Worrying about gas masks for horses in the age of gas attacks, trench warfare, machine guns, tanks, and planes.

Hopefully the goggles can detect and forewarn of any hungry Space Force chimps.

Horses were needed to move equipment and supplies for many militaries up through WW2....in WW1 there was little alternative as motorized vehicles were expensive, unreliable, and uncommon...as well as being poorly suited to muddy or rough terrain and trains only go where tracks are laid. all the artillery used in WW1 was moved by literal horse power.

Knowing is half the battle dude.

I feel like this is someone who was really into GI Joe in the 80's wanting to see Mutt and Junkyard get some cool upgrades.

I'm not gonna lie and say it never happened... but... part of moving in with people is supposed to be getting rid of some stuff... and that never really happened... two swiffers, two kitchenaid mixers, two coffee makers... there's backups of lots of stuff here.

If cats develop opposable thumbs we will no longer be the dominant species on the planet.  That might be a good thing if it was a species other than cats.

It's geek cred, not nerd cred. And you were second. I was lazy and didn't do the picture.
