On a less serious note (depending
on your perspective), I saw a cat capture
and eat a large lizard tonight.
It was nothing short of amazing to watch.
The lizard was really a cute little guy
with large eyes and skin like a leopard
under a black light.
I became aware of the cat having his feast
when I heard it crunching down on the lizards
head. I then quickly ran over to observe
By the time I sat down the cat had already
dislocated the lizards head which sat peering
at me a few inches away from its body
flinching and flopping around in the cats
I had never witnessed anything like this
before so I was really surprised to see
that the body was still moving quite strongly.
The cat continued to grind off a foot,
and then an arm and then the lungs and onto
the next arm. And all the while, the body
kept resisting. The lizards back legs held
feet with toes similar to a frogs in that
they seemed to have suction cups on each
end. The lizards feet kept clamping
down on the ground whilst the legs pushed
against the cats mouth in a effort
to free itself from the cats grip.
But the head was as dead as a fish at market
and its eyes just stared off into
the distance, robotic and without life,
like Dick Cheney on a good day.
This was a great symbol of the energy of
life to keep living. After a couple minutes,
the cat had devoured the entire torso down
to the lizards hind legs which were
pushing its feet into the cats
teeth at an attempt to gain leverage and
free itself. What the hell would the
bottom half of the body do with itself if
it did manage to get free??, I thought.
God only knows that, and we havent
been on talking terms for some time now,
so I doubted he would be forthcoming.
The truly amazing part came when the legs
were already seated in new form within the
cats stomach and the cat began to
eat the tail. The tail (ONLY THE TAIL!)
was whipping back and forth like a dangling
snake! It was unbelievable! This lizard
has now become my new hero. I then smacked
the cat over the head with my shoe, stole
the lizards tail from him and hung
it on the wall of my room. Would you believe
me if I told you that it is still moving
back and forth even now?! I hope not, because
although Im slightly abnormal, I would
never do something quite that insane.
After the cat was done eating the tail
it when back and finished off the head.
The lizards dead, Dick Cheney like
eyes, slowly disappeared into the cats
mouth and I started to breath normally again.
what an amazing sight that
was! I really wonder what it is inside the
lizards body that made it continue
to fight so hard for its life when
clearly it could never survive without its
head, let alone its body. I dont
know much about anatomy or the true makeup
of the human body, but something like this
really makes you wonder how much the brain
really controls and our own bodies, and
how much of pain and general response to
certain stimuli is just instinctive.
I remember a really good experiment wherein
scientists put a bunch of chickens in a
gated yard that had a chicken hut at one
corner. They then attached a piece of wire
from one end of the yard to the other and
slowly pulled a fake hawk across this wire.
When they did this, all the chickens ran
and hid in the chicken hut. But when the
scientists turned the hawk around and drew
in backwards across the same wire, the chickens
blew him off and werent concerned
in the least. So again, how much of our
response in life is just instinct? Theres
no doubt that most of it programming and
conditioning (like people that continue
to smoke, even knowing that they are slowly
killing themselves) , but there is still
A LOT that is instinctive. Advertisers know
this very well and love to place beautiful
women next to their products to mixup the
mans instinctive attraction to the
female form and the product that they are
trying to sell. So the common man sees
all the ads of the pretty woman holding
the sunflower seeds and soon he gets a hard-on
every time he sees sunflower seeds. lol
People are stupid, advertisers are geniuses.
Unfortunately, advertisers are people as

but it shows a lizard very similar to the
one in my short story above. This picture
