Title: Airdrop

"I'm calling in your debt," he said.

When the IOU's started fluttering down, I realized I might have a gambling problem.

Why would you lie face down in motor oil with tire marks on your back, a gun in your hand, and spent shells on the ground? Oh.

ON THE DEFENESTRATION OF CATS

Post by Una arborensis » Mon Sep 27, 2010 12:44 am

They conducted the study to determine why so many cats were being defenestrated. Seems Mighty Mouse was a philanderer.



The inspiration for this was from a recent WNYC’s Radiolab podcast, in which they discussed (among other falling themed stories) the phenomenon of Feline high-rise syndrome.
In short, cats in NY city were falling frequently (132 in a 5 month summer period), and cats that fell between 5 and 9 floors sustained greater and more multiple injuries than those that fell from either 4 or less stories, or GREATER THAN 9 stories. This is of course because the Terminal Velocity for a cat is approximately 60mph, which is attained at about 9 stories high, at which point the cat relaxes like a flying squirrel and belly-flops onto the ground.
The greatest recorded height (according to WNYC’s Radiolab podcast) was from 42 floors high, and the cat walked away.

Jenny tucked the Bible beneath her holy headband. She was ready to exercise these demons. Exercise the hell out of them.

In my mind, Jenny's in some 1980's, violent pink Fame! gear.

The dummy on his arm opened its mouth
and through clenched lips the ventriloquist said just what the dummy wanted him to.

How about a midget ventriloquist who sits on the knee of a life-size dummy?
