We have a black cat and a white cat. I sent my sister a picture and asked which one is cuter. She replies, oh no, I'm not falling for this race baiting bullshit. They're both cute and all 18 lives matter.
Such potential!

Cats don't have nine lives. I've tested this using the scientific method (I.e. a 4 iron) and keep getting results that do not support this assumption.

One might have had two, but further research suggested I didn't apply the method of experiment correctly.
Yep, you totally outsmarted me ~ Wildcat.

Fucking hell. Can barely type this out. Don't know if anyone on here knew him, but my dad passed away this morning. He was found by a water bailiff sitting peacefully in his fishing chair with a rod cast and the Test match on the radio. Heartbroken but all I could wish for him.

Sometimes you wish you had a throwaway account, for real life.
I wish I had a primary account. My life is already a throwaway account.

Kids, come down! It's time for dinner!........

Kids!!!

KIDS!!!!!!

You should try telling louder. I find that as your volume increases, the rate at which you get what you want also increases. Also, the overall quality of life for each family member also improves.


.....What did you say, old man? Are you being sarcastic?


Absolutely not. I love you more with every decibel.



KIDS!!!!!!




........



We're not kids anymore. We're young adults.

We can only hope that you get the same treatment when your time comes...

The experiment overlooked an important point


The cats were on their 9th life when you did your experiments
