They are independent, emotionally detached loners; they look at you with this glassy, vacant expression; they are finicky, picky eaters; and to comfort themselves they will repetitively and mindlessly knead the bed with their paws.
Kiss my furry butt!
Aspergers is a communications disorder in which certain humans have trouble learning essential social skills and interpreting what other people say and do. Cats on the other hand are very good at communicating with other cats, which is why unlike dogs they avoid fights and when they do fight rarely seriously injure or kill each other. They also are able to endear themselves to certain humans so well that the humans will bend over backwards to please them. Pretty much the opposite of Aspergers.
My first cat was a shelter cat. Her name was Bootsie Gumdrop.
Not necessarily, OP.
But they're definitely Dataloungers.
Has anyone noticed if male cats have feminine features? What are they?
My 12 year old spade female cat has a gay tom cat boyfriend. He sits with her everyday until she smacks him.
She's lazy, loves cat and dog food. Very friendly if you initiate, not at all finicky. They're not as needy as dogs and I like that, you dimwit OP.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
