It might just be that I happen to own to highly evolved cats (hello Colonel Mustard and Pony), but it really sounds like this unhappy cat is saying “I don’t want it.” As in, I don’t want to go to the vet you stupid, stupid lady why are you making me? I’m inclined to agree with him. [YouTube]
First of all, let’s get one thing straight. Designers work for months on their collections, searching for inspiration, creating looks, and pouring their hard work into the clothes shown to editors and press during Fashion Week. Said shows last a total of maybe 10 minutes. It shouldn’t be hard to keep your mouth shut and just watch during that short amount of time, right?

Meanwhile, go figure, the part of the brain she calls the ‘sex processor’ is twice as big as in men as it is in women.
So do these findings mesh with the highly scientific research you’ve done in your life? Or does this sound totally right? Keep reading »
