Frequent readers of Need Something to Do Today, might have caught on the fact that the author is somewhat obsessed with the possibility of a robot apocalypse. It might stem from an overactive imagination and frequent viewings of Battlestar Galactica, but it's also remotely possible that the obsession is based on the loosest interpretation of the term "facts," and what is popularly known as "wild conjecture."
However for those doubters out there, I offer this report from a shadowy rebel alliance called the BBC.
After being faced with evidence that Europe is cybernetically enhancing their house cats, what other reasonable conclusions can be drawn besides the dawn of a pending cat-pocalypse? (Aside from it being a radical advance in medical science that could help relieve the pain and suffering of disabled sentient creatures and allow them to be more self-sufficient, I mean.) There has never been a more obvious subterfuge ... Clearly, these six-million dollar cats will be on the front lines when the revolution comes. And to be blunt, we are not prepared.
Luckily, today there is a chance to prepare for the tekno-kitty wars by supporting dogs.
Mondays through August at Donnie Mac's you can attend Paws on the Patio, in which pooches may dine on the patio with their handlers while chowing down on some fancy Zamzows snack treats. The proceeds benefit Spay Neuter Idaho Pets, which also happens to be an excellent way to curtail the growing cat population.
And for our more committed readers, there's Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs, at The Museum of Idaho in Idaho Falls. Yes, it's a drive, but the exhibit explores the history, biology and evolution of dogs and their role in human society. Which, in addition to being the info you'll need to survive the dark days ahead, is also pretty rad.
