For any fellow cat owners who are interested, I discovered a fun game/prank. I just happened to be surfing Mat K's eyeEnvision, listening to this Flash animation of a cat rock band, when the shrieking lead singer got my own cats worked up in confusion. I shut down the animation and searched for cat sounds online. For the next twenty minutes, my cats went nuts, searching around the house and crying out, looking for the mewling kittens and howling cats that were invisible somewhere near my desk. It was a little mean of me, sure, but at least it gave them something to do other than stare at the wall for twenty minutes like normal. Try it out.

On the first link that comes up, cat11 makes my cat very interested. She jumped on the desk and investigated the speaker. Most of the others noises she ignored, and the angry cat ones made her leave.

Down with Escalators

I came across an article in Slate about surprising escalator research. The clickbaity headline and intro imply that it's faster to stand on the escalator than to walk, which isn't exactly true, but close: A study found that reserving space for walkers on the left side of the escalator reduced efficiency for standers on the right side so much that there was a net loss of travel time across all parties.

Sharia Lawlessness

I'm the last person you're likely to hear complain about so-called "activist judges." When a judge in West Virginia declared Obamacare unconstitutional last summer, and some of my conservative friends cheered his moral courage, I wanted to ask them how it was different from the half-dozen times they jeered judges who defied Congress's legal authority.
