What Me Worry Cat:  There is very little to be anxious about, if you maintain a worthy house ( country ).   Americans take pills because the doctors are not trained in preventive medicine.  They give pills out like prizes in Cracker Jack boxes.  If someone is joked about it is like finding a frog in their Cheerios.

Here is one reason to be anxious.  By the time the TSA employees get through fondling you I want a cigarette and a shower.  If you don’t get fecal matter on your food tray, you get some disease from Ethiopia or Guatemala.

Maybe the new airline employees can figure out a workable plan.

Maybe even have a cigarette.

Rattle Cat:  It is about both.  Here are some real snakes.

THE SPHINX—–ELECTRICITY UPDATE AND COMPUTERS

Sphinx Main
The Editor:  Should we print our usual warning about electricity, LL ?

Benjamin Franklin Cat:  We should, we always lose a few readers who can’t follow instructions.   DO NOT MESS WITH ELECTRICITY UNLESS YOU HAVE SOME TYPE OF CERTIFICATION.   HERE IS YOUR DESTINY IF YOU ARE STUPID.

http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/80654598/

The Editor:  Why should our loyal readers be knowledgeable about electricity, BFC ?

http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2016/02/22/supercomputer-reston-noaa-cray-ibm/80290546/

9 Volt Cat:  It runs everything, maybe by land lines, maybe batteries, or even satellites.  Just remember electricity can be your best friend like Hillary, or your worst enemy like Rajib on top of the train car.  It isn’t particular about its victims, here are two who survived their carelessness.

The Editor:  That is sad, Volt Cat.  Is there a point to your electricity article ?

AC/DC Cat:  The point is that there are a lot of wires and electromagnetic  waves out there.  There hasn’t been any scientific test on their effect on sperm/eggs.  Sperms might be on the highway to hell.

THE SPHINX—-JOBS, JOBS, JOBS

Sphinx Main
The Editor:   Do cats have jobs, LL ?

Wake Me After Breakfast Cat:  No, the closest thing to a job for house cats is trying to sleep.  My previous number one job has been replaced by a newcomer.  His 6 years of absenteeism was noticed when his 20 years of service was about to be rewarded.   GO FIGURE

I swear, the Senate, House, President, and other high government employees are treated better than The Queen of England and her family.  Here is Prince Harry working part time as a Nazi.
