    My friend has a cat. Every time I meet her I sneeze incessantly.

    I must be a dork to the third power because I watched it without the sound and I still got hysterical. But I did notice a significant error. The first engineer who fed the cats put a scoop of kibble in their dish. He used his hand to measure out the amount of kibble. Engineers have far too much regard for precision and accuracy to do something that cavalier. It's unthinkable.

    As an engineer myself, I can appreciate the bold, un-precise behaviour and even "freedom" of supplying random and even large amounts of food to the cat, knowing full well that the cat will only eat an almost exact, even consistent amount of food in one sitting. Engineers have to "push the limits" sometimes too, but only with strict boundaries and safety measures in place.

    My dogs, on the other hand, get very measured amounts of food, as they would consume the entire bag if it was left up to them.

    Ooh, a real engineer! I'm quite jealous. My college biology advisor once smirked at me, "You think like an engineer." In my ignorance I thanked him. He replied, "I didn't mean it as a compliment."

    Considering the rest of us rely on you guys to keep our bridges up and our seawalls down you'd think we'd give you a little more respect.

    Rhea -

    You have to watch it with the sound. There is one part that talks about cat yodeling that made me crack up. Basically it is when he holds them and they meow and he shakes them a little bit. It is hilarious.

    Again, I'm a dork, but it was funny.

    As the father of an engineer, I cracked up particularly on the part where cats are like engineers in being willing to eat the same food over and over. The peanut butter and jelly toast reminded me of what our son told us his staple foods were during his lonely exile in engineering school -- peanut butter and jelly on toast, with occasional pop tarts as a special treat. And lots of milk.

    Oh, yeah, he does enjoy cats, too.

    As an engineer, I can verify that is absolutely true. Hubby doesn't quite understand it and it drives him nuts. LOL.

    I love cats, but I'm allergic. At least my allergy shots allow me to visit with my sister's cats on occasion.

    Thanks for that! Very well done.

    Imagine what the outside world must think of me: 3 cats, and a WIFE.

    The horror.
