think of the effect if you then tied a piece of buttered toast to the back of the cat and tossed it.
The worlds first perpetual motion motion. a super conducting frozen, cat trying to land on it's feet while toast tries to land butter side down.
...and as a bonus you get an anti-gravity system.
True. Now we have the question about "friends."
I submit a request to be your Facebook friend as "CuteBlonde362436" and you accept, thinking that I might be a cute blonde with measurements 36-24-36. At this point, I have access to your information including the fact that you like to molest small woodland creatures. Of course, I'm neither cute, blonde, nor do I have those measurements. However, I am part of an FBI task force charged with protecting small woodland creatures from molestation and the reason I approached you on Facebook is due to an anonymous tip that said you were into that sort of thing.
I now have all the evidence I need to have you locked up for a very long time.
Why would he want a cute blond when he is into small woodland creatures
That's a typo - it was supposed to be "CuteBlondeSquirrel362436"
A cited fact on Wikipedia would disagree with you. The good old days were never that good.
And while we're on the subject nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
