    That monkey house article annoyed me. Why was it written with such a sad, wistful tone? Don’t answer that, I know: because appealing to sentimentality is easy. Writing an interesting article with a positive tone about improving animal welfare in our entertainment . . . I guess that’s hard.

      It really weirded me out. I’m against animals in entertainment anyways, but at least you can make coherent arguments for zoos in the “it’s good education for children” etc route. This was just… “boo hoo hoo, things change! I don’t want changes!”

    Yeah, but does that USB-ma-jigger do midichlorian counts? <>

    The cat article annoyed me…no mention of lolcats and 4chan!?! The writer doesn’t seem to know much about cats or the internet. It’s obvious that the reason that cats rule the internet is that they’re much better pets if you spend a lot of time online or on a computer (they don’t need to be walked so don’t require going offline, they’ll keep your lap warm, they do entertaining things and they can haz cheezburger!)

    Also, no mention of the totally awesome Kittywood Studios…

    This leads me to believe this article was simply written by a bemused dog lover that was late to the web…
