THE SPHINX—COFFEE AND OTHER THINGS

The Editor:  Is coffee a big deal, LL ?

Caffeine Cat:  It is, but I don’t need the stuff.   Here are some coffee shacks in the news.   Personally, any place that serves food/drink should have bathrooms open to everyone,  and songs without foul language and the n-word being played.

THE SPHINX—-CREEPY PEOPLE

______________________________________________________________________

This could not happen to a lower piece of trash.  After reading “Fast and Furious ”  by Katie Pavlich—– Obama, Holder, and Janet Napolitano, should be banished from America, along with their kids.  These creeps sank even lower than Bill Clinton selling a grave at Arlington National Cemetery, to a campaign contributor.

 The Editor:  Is this about politicians, LL ?

Voodoo Cat:   Just one,  new one.   Here are some strange people.  One has horns like Chuck Schumer.

From recent reports I thought Amazon was a financial giant.  They can’t come close to screwing their customers like Apple.

They just cheat.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Rotation of the Large Magellanic Cloud
Image Credit & Licence: ESA, Gaia, DPAC

Explanation: This image is not blurry. It shows in clear detail that the largest satellite galaxy to our Milky Way, the Large Cloud of Magellan (LMC), rotates. First determined with Hubble, the rotation of the LMC is presented here with fine data from the Sun-orbiting Gaia satellite. Gaia measures the positions of stars so accurately that subsequent measurements can reveal slight proper motions of stars not previously detectable. The featured image shows, effectively, exaggerated star trails for millions of faint LMC stars. Inspection of the image also shows the center of the clockwise rotation: near the top of the LMC’s central bar. The LMC, prominent in southern skies, is a small spiral galaxy that has been distorted by encounters with the greater Milky Way Galaxy and the lesser Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC).

THE SPHINX—-HOW CATS BECAME ASSOCIATED WITH HUMANS

The  Editor:  A bunch of our new readers want to know how cats became associated with humans, LL.

Early Cat:   Way back,  the big cats ate early humans, if you could call them that.  Here is an early video.

The smarter cats decided it was best to stay small and take advantage of the developing humans.  They were the first to realize that any creature who would kill a fellow ape/monkey over a drink of water from a hog wallow/ big mud puddle was a creature with an enormous dark side.  

The Editor:   Why did the dogs/canines develop a fondness for humans, EC ?

A Leopard Can’t Change It’s Spots Cat:  Dogs are stupid pack animals.  Early cats would bring the monkeys/apes dead lizards to stay in good stead.  We still don’t trust humans.   They have developed a bunch since the monkey days.  The small felines are watching the devils.

The Editor:   Who are the most dangerous devils now, ALCCISC ?

The politicians are the most devious, deceitful, greedy, slimy, people and are free to steal public money.  If you review the hog wallow scene again, the apes/monkeys look strangely like Pelosi, Waters, Clinton, Schumer, Pocahontas,  and the rest of the Progressives who want your money and God given rights.

TE:   Could you tell our loyal readers what happened after the mud puddle revelation ?

I sure will, in another article.  In the meantime be careful.

Kepler’s House in Linz
Image Credit & Copyright: Erich Meyer (Astronomical Society of Linz)

Explanation: Four hundred years ago today (May 15, 1618) Johannes Kepler discovered the simple mathematical rule governing the orbits of the solar system’s planets, now recognized as Kepler’s Third Law of planetary motion. At that time he was living in this tall house on The Hofgasse, a narrow street near the castle and main square of the city of Linz, Austria, planet Earth. The conclusive identification of this residence (Hofgasse 7) as the location of the discovery of his third law is a recent discovery itself. Erich Meyer of the Astronomical Society of Linz was able to solve the historical mystery, based in part on descriptions of Kepler’s own observations of lunar eclipses. A key figure in the 17th century scientific revolution, Kepler supported Galileo’s discoveries and the Copernican system of planets orbiting the Sun instead of the Earth. He showed that planets move in ellipses around the Sun (Kepler’s First Law), that planets move proportionally faster in their orbits when they are nearer the Sun (Kepler’s Second Law), and that more distant planets take proportionally longer to orbit the Sun (Kepler’s Third Law).
