    Today while driving, a car passed me that advertised "Pet Accupuncture and Chiropractic". Yeah, I can see someone trying to stick needles into my cat.

    A fool and their money are soon parted.

    Is there no limit to what people will waste their money on?

    There's a veternary clinic not far from where I live that offers those as well.

    Ah, the sin of peace. Not quite as gruesome as the sin of war, of course, but still sickening in the right light.

    Well, all I know is that the $250 per week I spend for past life regression therapy for my cat has really helped both of us come to terms with his illegal possum smuggling.

    There was probably no other way.

    It was just such a shock to turn the channel late at night and find this infomercial. :cry:

    Wow. You must have been devestated. I've never had a pet turn to crime, but, of course you hear stories everywhere and always have to wonder when they're late for dinner.

    My cat. He "pumps" with his paws, some call it "kneading", it's what kittens do when they're milking their moms. He's obsessive about it.

    You haven't read the Dr Foofer threads. It's an old joke.

    The best thing about cats is that they're biodegradable.

    Hmmm...Do tribbles also annoy you? You may be a Klingon.

    Oh, they don't care for cats either. I remember when Data asked Whorf to take care of Cat. Data: tell him he's a nice cat, tell him he's a pretty cat. Whorf: I will feed him.

    Yeah, you'd be happier with some viscious creature that can't be trained not to bite, I think. Something more challenging.

    Point of contention: cats can't be trained not to bite (or scratch).

    I think I remember that episode. Did the cat end up having kittens?
     
  22. Mar 8, 2006 #21
    Oh, this is your objection: you fear them.

    Yes, it regressed to a lizard right after it had the kittens. Everyone on board regressed. Data and Captain Picard where away, and when they returned, they found the entire crew regressed to primitive states.

    The kittens didn't regress due to the placenta, (I don't write the stuff) and that's how they figured out how to cure everyone.

    Not that I'm a huge Enterprise TNG fan and have memorized every episode. :redface: :uhh:

    Aha. Of course placentas stop time warps. That makes perfect sense.

    And no, zooby, I don't fear cats. I just don't like them.

    That ones is pretty fuzzy in my mind. I don't remember the regression part.

    The episode I have memorized is the one about the deja vus. I thought they did a great job of capturing the weird mood you have when you're having alot of them, and are certain you must have lived through the events at least several times before.

    It was some virus that couldn't pass through the placenta.

    :surprised
