Monday: Hili dialogue

by Matthew Cobb

PCC(E) is away having fun in Gay Paree, so I have the keys to the car. Just hope I don’t leave any scratches on it. There will be a much reduced service over the next week, I’m afraid.

In Dobrzyn, Hili is confirming that she is, indeed a cat.

Hili: There are a few options
A: What options?
Hili: Kitchen, bed, hunting.
A: What do you chose?
Hili: Uncertainty.
Hili: Jest kilka opcji.
Ja: Jakie?
Hili: Kuchnia, łóżko, polowanie.
Ja: A co wybierasz?
Hili: Niepewność.

    If we get a few morning rush hour and choice illusions it’ll be good

    Thank you matthew. Btw, jerry’s plane landed a bit ahead of schedule, four hours ago (0214 chicago time) according to flightaware. So he should be out and about planning his first paris midday meal by now.

      Is there a Walkwhere? I’d like to track his every move. 😎

        You wanna put a radio collar on him and track his movements from an old Land Rover? Guess you’d have had to dart him in the butt then strap it on him but that probably would have hindered his passage through the TSA check.

          No. If he carries a cell phone, that should do it. At least that’s what I’m told. 😎

    In the case that Jerry gets tired of museums and restaurants, here is the calendar of the political demonstrations in Paris for the next days:

    I think public transportations are now running.

    Here’s a random piece on a cat who needed prosthetics. Subtitles are in Russian, I think, but just see how he’s doing with the new titanium feet.

      So heartwarming. Tanks

      My only concern is how comfortable are those spikes up its leg. Cats are notorious for living with pain.
      AND how is it that they have 2 cats showing without their own feet.
      I know I sound suspicious but some places do more experimental procedures with cats.

        Yes, cats can hide pain. I met a prosthetics researcher at the Colorado SU Veterinary School and he explained that these legs work pretty well, but in dogs – where his research is focused – they tend to break down because the animals are so active. Also, a big problem is infection at the tissue/titanium interface. For cats, I suspect breakage would be less of a problem, but infection would still be an issue.

          The hope is that such research can one day transfer to humans…

            It would be nice to be able to implant titanium legs. I have an implanted tooth – which is a start.

    More other news. Even if you think the earth is flat, there is still gravity.
