Feel free to share your strange thoughts on this thread.

My Strange Thought: How big would cats (house cats) need to be before they tried to eat us?

I mean, you could trust a dog as they demonstrate love and loyalty but cats seem only to tolerate us as bringers of food. I'm not talking about tigers or lions, though for the sake of this ST they could get to that size but I don't correlate tigers/lions to large house cats.

Their natural instinct to pounce and swat would become an issue as they grow larger - though I suspect they would play with us a bit (for entertainment purposes) before eating half of us and leave our remnants on the floor...

Strange Thought #2: If a world wide virus disabled our taste buds would we eat healthier?

If you can't taste the salty goodness of potato chips, the rich creamy taste of chocolate, or the endless variety of tasty beverages; would you be content with drinking water and eating healthy foods?

Or would food texture replace taste?

We all know that the healthier foods don’t taste as good. So yes if we had no taste I could eat broccoli.Smile

I would say probably when they got just a bit larger than a pitbull.

Strange Thought #3: If sex stopped being pleasurable, would the human race die out?

It's a funny thing about pleasure.

It can be quite...

PLEASURABLE!

True, but if you take out the pleasure principle isn't it just as much fun as doing push ups?

#1 There is a stray feral (true feral) cat with kittens that appeared one day. She hissed and spit (never saw a cat spit before) each time I passed. I thought how big would she need to be to bring me down and feed her kittens.

Even a domesticated cat seems to only tolerate their owners (as long as they feed them). I think old cat ladies will end up being eaten by their cats.

No. Many many children are conceived in test tubes.

Domestic cats can be very affectionate.
Dogs will eat their owners as well on occasion.

Cats are fine, but if they were people I wouldn't trust them to hold my wallet.

Is sex suppose to be pleasurable? I knew I was doing something wrong.
No matter how many times you say the wrong thing, it will NEVER be right.

Strange Thought #3: If you had super powers (IE: Superman) where you were extremely strong, 99% invulnerable, fast, and could fly would you be a hero or a villain? Meaning, would you serve the common good or serve your own self interest. I believe the more you think about it the greyer that line becomes. Do you serve humanity and follow their rules... or... do you change the world because now you have the potential to change it? Could you handle that much power?

Yeah... I'd be villain...

Strange Thought #3 while hypothetical asks the real question about mans true nature. Are we deep down inside good or bad. If I were to be totally honest I would have to say bad. It just seems so natural and easy to be bad. Goodness takes work. I have also seen how people behave when consequences are removed from life's morays. The tendency is to become animalistic, satisfying selfish wants at the expense of others. Most often it takes those who would keep order to coral the evil into behaving. So perhaps I'd like to think myself a due gooder but would not "absolute power corrupt absolutely? My moral compass is strong but I'm not sure I could holdout in a society gone bad?

Personally, I think it's probably better to be bad when surrounded by eels. Especially big, hungry ones.

You just swung for the softball. I was waiting for something on the coral or the due.

Strange Thought #4

If you are what you eat, what would you look like?

"Hey Jill, you're looking great!"
"Thanks! I just got back from my stylist, do you like it"
Spaghetti is a great look for you, how ever did they get that much lift?"
Oh I went with Angel hair and requested al dente, thanks for noticing!'

I've seen this comedy routine and it is hack. Cats don't eat babies or sleeping tots. House Cats, like horses, are domesticated and don't generally harm humans regardless of size.
If we were the size of mice we would have been unable to domestic them in the first place.
