File This Under: Sexism Kills.
People don't take girl hurricanes as seriously as guy hurricanes. The males must be more powerful, right?
absoluuuutely disgusting. You know, honestly? Even getting near one
cat's litterbox is disgusting. Even if you change the litter
frequently. Eesh, we clean our toilets every week and it's still not
pleasant all the time in the bathroom. (Was that TMI? Too bad.)
"Millions of Cats" book is super cute, but you'd never want to try this
in real life. Imagine having hundreds of cats. The smell. So many
cats you can't name them all, and can't fix them all. A hundred cats
all pooping, shedding, breeding in your house. Eeew.
enough when you want the cats. But living next door in a duplex? OH
the poor neighbours. They complained and guess what happened? Guess.
Animal control came in, took the animals, and condemned the building. The news story gushes about the poor animals
and a fund set up to care for the cats that were removed, but what
about the neighbours? Where are they living? Not one word about
I care plenty for animals, but how about people first?
Can You Own a Number?
Maybe. Some guy actually was able to trademark pi! From his lawyer's letter to Zazzle:
"Pi is a registered trademark (U.S. Reg. No. 4473631) of our client's business, Paul Ingrisano/PI Productions Corp., and is used in conjunction with goods under International Class 25... this trademark provides him with certain proprietary rights... it is important that Ingrisano exercise his right to protect his trademark. It serves as an important and distinctive representation of the origin of his products as well as the goodwill of his company."
This affects perhaps thousands of products in Zazzle's stores alone. Apparently Zazzle is gonna defy this one. Many people are pretty miffed that commonly used symbols and even COLOURS are being trademarked.
"I didn't know you could do this!" remarked a friend recently. "I am going to go trademark the integration symbol and then sue all physicists. I would trademark all Greek letters and then sue Greece, but they don't have any money."
