Power of brains.

If you do not spend, somebody else will - somebody else must.

What then do you think the old practice that they should take who have the power and they should keep who can is less iniquitous when the power has become power of brains instead of fist? Though we may not take advantage of a child's or a woman's weakness, we may of man's foolishness?

Change must come, but it is ours to determine whether change of growth or change of death. Better or worse shall come and it is for you to choose which.

The Independent cat

The taming of the cat happened about 10.000 years after that of the dog and 1.500 years after the horse's.

One principle of domestication is the desire of the individual to integrate a social ierarchy, which didn't quite fit the cat's individuality profile. For millenia, the cat has enjoyed the commensality of the human contact while keeping its distance.

In 2017 there were 100 million cats in the US homes, about one to every three people, whereas in Romania you can estimate one to every five people, but the numbers are not official, as many cats don't open their tiny doors to census teams.
