Episode 216 - Podcat
00:00:00 - How did humans domesticate cats? Per usual, the answer may come from chemistry. Also, why did cats never put in the effort to become man's best friend? Aloof jerks. Do you want to know more about cats? Check out actual book Wild Cats of the World. Ryan has a copy, maybe you should too.
00:26:21 - Cats drink using their tongue and physics. We just drink using our mouths, and this week Patrick kicks things off with a The Corruption IPA from DC Brau. Abe is a bit under the weather so relies upon the healing powers of the a Maker's Mark Hot Toddy. And Ryan mixed up Schrodinger and Heisenberg and their respective relevance to cats but manages to power through his Hoppenburg Uncertainty Principle from River North Brewing.
00:33:33 - Now for the really important question: What does your cat think you are? Some say your cat thinks you're a cat. Others say that your cat thinks you're an unpredictable ape. Which is it SCIENCE?
00:56:13 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like cats, they difficult to tame and can give you parasites if you're not careful. Abe presents a new recurring donation from Andrew H. Thanks, Andrew! Patrick is surprised to learn that a bigfoot has been sighted on the island state of Hawaii by Tara F. Ryan has something special from the physical mailbox from Veronica W. This week we're giving away the game Offspring Fling! for Steam. If you'd like it, just be the first to write in and it could be yours!
