Quarantine Cafe: More Robot Animals and Cats with Digital Buttholes Edition

Hugging a huge bear.

Dog throws a tantrum when his master tells him it's time to leave the dog park.


Horse plays with a big ball like he's a puppy. I didn't know horses did this.

Baby elephant plays the chasing game with a dog, but then gets frustrated because he can't catch the dog. I've been there.

Injured sea lion jumps on to boat, looking for help.

A few more robotic spy animals:

Robot orangutan.

Robot gorilla.

Robot ostrich chick infiltrates an ostrich brood. In this one, a leopard shows up, and the mother ostrich feigns an injury and flees, limping, trying to draw the leopard away from the chicks.

By the way, how fast are ostriches? This fast.

Scrappy chihuahua protects kittens from bigger dog. The bigger dog just seems to want to play, but the chihauhau doesn't want him roughhousing with the kittens.

Below: Cats: The Butthole Cut.


Thanks to bonhomme.

Why do cats like to stand directly in-line between you and the TV, thus giving you a perfect view of their cat-buttholes?

36 "This show was made during a different okay, when comedy laughing was more socially acceptable. "

I watched a Gilligan's Island over the weekend and it was the one where the Skipper got bonked on the head and he thought the other Islanders were Japanese soldiers. They had them made up with yellow makeup or some effect to make them look yellow. I couldn't believe they still show that.

I couldn't believe there is an Amos and Andy channel on Roku either, but there is.

That makes sense. Sailor is the first cat that I've had for a long period of time and I had no idea felines were so scent conscious. He smells everything. When Teddy's been out Sailor smells him to see where he's been. When he's outside he's always got his nose into the wind.

Who in the hell came up with those ghastly character designs, given the billions of cute cat people images available online to work from? They made the worst possible looking cat and person then blended them together into something that goes beyond Uncanny Valley to Uncanny Marianas Trench

103 Dakoda the husky's owners are the problem. Zero control over their dog.
A brother has a lab who loves the park, and loves to swim in lakes, rivers, and Puget Sound. The dog will fetch the ball or a stick for hours if it can.
But when my brother yells "BOX!", dog immediately runs to the car, waiting for the back to open and jump in the portable kennel.
He seldom has to say it twice, and the dog is a family dog first all the way. It's not the dog, it's the owner's failures.

The producer had enough and said something like "Come on guys, we're almost out of time." So they went with Out of Time.

One of the names they tossed out was "Cat Butt".

Steve Bannon points out that there are about 400,000 precinct committee member positions in the Repub party nationally.
About 200,000 of those positions are EMPTY right now.
If MAGA supporters (like us) would just show up and take them, MAGA would control the Repub party. Literally call your county Repub party, attend a meeting and introduce yourself, and seek an empty available position.
If they are all taken in your country, offer to "shadow" the existing person, learning what they do, and run for their spot in the next round.
Oh, and Bannon points out, BE RESPECTFUL! They are RINOs, not Commies.

They are also releasing Diablo II as a remaster. Blizzard is also releasing The Burning Crusade Classic this year for WoW players. I've been playing WoW Classic and avoiding retail WoW, but logged in to the current version last night, but my 'puter is too old to run it. Even at the lowest graphics settings, I was only pulling about 35 fps. Any higher settings and it was like watching a WoW PowerPoint presentation.

223 Just finished watching The Little Things, with the great Denzel Washington, the strangely faced but solid Rami Malek, and the worst actor in human history, Jared Leto.

Not a bad flick for the first hour and a half. Tense, mysterious, sad (it's about the hunt for a serial killer of women), with a lot of very good acting. Went off the rails in the last half an hour, though I can't say I'm disappointed with the resolution (everyone got what was coming to them).

Two out of four stars, I guess. Denzel's excellence was a bit wasted on this film. Every time I saw Leto I wanted to kill him with my bare hands. I kept thinking "Is his character really that evil, or is it just that Leto is such a shitty actor that makes me hate the character so much?" I ultimately concluded that the answers to these two questions were Yes and Yes.

I really need to find a new series to watch.

The majority vote at the precinct level controls the vote at the state level, which controls the vote for national candidates.
If the locals are only supporting MAGA candidates, and not RINO candidates, the RINOs will die on the vine with no support.
And if the rich money candidate won't do what the majority vote of that chain of representatives will do, they get shut down and replaced with someone who will.

It starts at the grass roots level, Democrats have known this for years. You can't find an open Democrat precinct spot. But half of Repub ones are a ghost town.

329 Diablo III wasn't a failure it broke preorder sales records, and first day sales records and has sold over 30 million copies. That puts it in between DII and Overwatch for Blizzard. And DII is way down there. There were problems yes. But they must have not been enough to keep people from buying it.

Yes, there are better topdown ARPGs now and more popular, china's Path of Exile is very popular, grim dawn is popular. Inquisitor is decent if you want something scify WH4Kish. Steam beta Last Epoch is looking good. Torchlight III, now that's a complete failure which is sad because T1&2 were nice and Runic was made up of old blizzard people.

On a more fun note, I think I have successfully fixed buddy's FIE .22 automatic. At least it popped the primer on a .22 LR shell from which I removed the powder and slug. Wouldn't fire at all before.

I think he was just playing around. In the end the movie shows that Bruce Lee was an important part of Sharon Tate's life, training her for the movie showcased in the film.

Who cares if it shows Lee being a braggart? I actually love that Tarantino doesn't do sacred cows.

It displays his independent streak, despite the fact that he can be a raving lefty idiot. He's not all lefty - I'd say other than his dummy forays into racial identity oppression garbage, his movies mostly have a "conservative" core. And let's not forget that it's statists and lefty douches who did almost all of the historical racial oppressing in question. It's too bad that always gets lost in the shuffle.

Yeah that's another weakness. But art is art and I love what he creates. I don't think you can change one thing about a super creative dude like that and not take some other valuable stuff with it.

The clue about how good Tarantino is (to me) is most of the critics still keep waiting for him to "mature". Which I think in part means turn his movies into artsy leftardganda and take away the fun parts. He won't kowtow, and his last movie demonstrated that.

The final issue with him is he's definitely missing his original editor, the late Sally Menke.

I thought it was okay but the problem is that Tarantino desperately needs and editor but is too "big" to listen to one. So his stuff goes on for ages, often with no real purpose. They lose suspense they lose punch, and you lose track of what is going on in the movie because each scene just goes on for freaking ever.

Also, he does a poor job of establishing scenes at times. That big scene in Pulp Fiction where the guys go pick up the suitcase with the golden glow in it? I didn't even see there was a guy on the couch the first viewing. I thought Sam Jackson had just shot the couch, not someone lying on it.

You as the viewer had no real sense of the layout of the room or what was in it or where. It was so focused on the main characters that when the bathroom door opens you're like "wait, there's a door over there?"

429 I'd also add Milo Murphy's Law. It's about a kid who's had to adapt to the fact that his life is the embodiment of Murphy's Law. It's a lot of fun, and includes a Phineas and Ferb crossover. As a bonus, Milo is voiced by Weird Al.

434 The 2020 election might be the biggest short sell in history. The cost for revealing the American vote doesn't count will have ramifications beyond what the oligarchs might have thought it was worth, but as in their nature, they literally can't help themselves.
Slowly people are waking up to the fact those that reside in the District of Columbia do not represent the will of the American people.
It is not your government, it is a foreign government. Your franchise has been removed, as has your recourse to the law.

Cats, you see, are mystical creatures. Capable of existing in multiple dimensions simultaneously, they chase things that don't show up in your dimension. So when your cat is staring at the corner of your room, your room in another dimension has some weird bird sitting there.

Jim, real talcum powder is made of talc, a silicate mineral chemically similar to asbestos, that crystallizes in thin sheets instead of fibers. Absolutely non-combustible, in any form.

But a lot of "baby powder" these days is made of corn starch, which will of course burn, just like wheat flour does.

Some lawyer discovered that talcum powder may contain minute traces of asbestos. So California is convinced it causes cancer.

453 I'm thinking this new hyped up focus on diversity and inclusion in the military will have the same roaring success it has had in our schools.


In all seriousness this is truly fucked up. Always regretted I never served but not anymore and would never advise my kids to as long as this goes on. Who would want to risk their life for this left wing insanity and talking points? This is going to result in some serious military disasters
