On YouTube: Fox teaching some jungle rules to home cat

Published on Feb 2, 2016 by Mshari KSA

RT has the story:

This regular cat was no match for a clever fox, who taught the feline a thing or two about the pecking order.

Believed to have been filmed in snowy Russia, the wily fox was watched by an amused passersby as he flung the cat to the wayside so he could tuck into the kitty’s meal.

The cat did at least attempt to ward off the fox, before resigning himself to the fact that it wouldn’t be sharing a meal with the wild animal anytime soon.

Pre Caturday: Woman who claims to be a Cat

Move over Shaun King and Rachel Dolezal, you have a new competition in the role playing department. A 20 year old Norwegian woman named  Nano claims that she is a cat. Yes you read this correctly, she swears that her human body is a genetic defect. Nano claims she hisses at Dogs and wants to eat mice.

Woman says she is a cat trapped in the wrong body – she hisses at dogs, hates water and claims she can even see better at night

A psychologist has said she can grow out of it, but Nano wants to be a cat for life

We probably all feel a bit like a sleepy housecat when we have to get up for work in the morning.

This Norwegian woman has taken that feeling to the next level. Nano claims she realised she was a cat when she was 16 years old, and has adopted feline mannerisms since.

The 20-year-old has opened up about her life as a puss, describing how she has a superior sense of hearing and sight which allows her to hunt mice in the dark.

She made the revelation in a YouTube video, which has been viewed over 100,000 times.

Nano claims to possess many feline characteristics including a hatred of water and the ability to communicate simply by meowing.

“I realised I was a cat when I was 16 when doctors and psychologists found out what was “the thing” with me. Under my birth there was a genetic defect,” she explains in the video.

As they walked through Oslo’s central station, the presenter asked Nano what she could hear and see that a normal person might not.

“Suitcases rolling on the ground,” she says, “Keys clinking in pockets. People with ice under their shoes.”

[….]

“He is human but has someone in his head that is a cat, and I am born as a cat,” Nano confirms.

The young woman said her life as a cat was “exhausting” but she doesn’t want to live as a human.

Nano is a product of the Hipster menace that is destroying Europe, America, Canada, Latin America and Australia from within. The idea that reality does not matter and that you can be whatever you want. Fantasy has become reality and people like Nano no longer are in touch with reality.

This mindset is why Hipsters like Obama and Justin Trudeau got elected as leaders of their respective nations. This mindset is why Angela Merkel and the EU believed Islamic peoples are compatible with Western Society. Although this story maybe funny, it’s very scary and a sign of the mental breakdown the Western world is now having.

Error2K posted the video on Reddit with this title: “My cat had surgery and hates the cone, but she found one good use for it.” Watch as she carefully lines up the cone with the faucet to accumulate a small pool of water, then neatly laps it up.

Saturday Lecture Series: Why Putin Is So Popular in Russia

Good Morning All! Welcome to the Flyover Center for Politics and Nationalism Studies here at Land Grant U and pizza joint. Today’s Lecture is brought to you by the Bubba and Billy Bob Tobacco Spitin’ Endowment for the Education of all Y’all.

 

This article provides an interesting insight into why Putin is so popular in Russia. Please read the article in its entirety. Thanks You.

 

This has now changed. ‘Putin is falsely presented as a nationalist’, said Remizov. ‘In a Russian context, he’s a sovereigntist. But in general, the agenda of the Kremlin today is formed by the opposition of the 2000s: the conservative, patriotic majority.’

Yet Western governments often treat Russia’s minority liberal opposition as the avant-garde of a hidden liberal majority. To Dmitri Trenin, director of the Carnegie Moscow Centre, however, this is betting on the wrong horse. ‘This isn’t just about Putin’, he told a group I was with in Moscow. ‘It’s about the nature of society as a whole. Putin has been able to rule this country in an authoritarian way with the consent of the governed.’ The imagined liberal majority looking to the West for emancipation doesn’t exist. Russian liberals, he said, ‘have the same problem the revolutionaries have always had in Russia: they look down on the rest of the country as dupes.’…
