    I guess. That's what the colored hash is for to the right of the password though.

    Not that I cared, I ticked the 'remember password' option anyway. <_<

    Yup, me too. Just kind of weird that it's white on white.

    The trick with cat ballistics is to get a good spin going, like a football. Try it with your cat today!*

    *Do not actually try this with your cat.

    Now you got me wondering about the aerodynamic properties of an airborne dog. I don't have a cat.

    I think a dog would be more aerodynamic than a cat, wouldn't it? Cats spread themselves out to soften the blow of falls, so presumably they would try to do that after launch, which would affect their travel speed. Plus, there's no way you could get a cat to sit exactly where you wanted it to.

    Cats land on their feet so at least the last bit they pull their feet forward thus reduce drag. I don't know about in-flight though, that is a good point. Wouldn't dogs have the same reflex? It'd be pretty hard to teach a dog how to position itself during flight...

    Although we *could* tie the animal's feet together, that should really help with reducing drag.

    Which brings me to my question... what is the dogapult for? If it's for getting attack cats & dogs across a wall, then tying their feet is no good. But if it's for the sound it makes while they are in-flight (barking or hissing, combined with ballistic movement), tying their feet should be fine.

    Our (previously: wife's) 360 is now set up with the Kinect, an XBL account, and a one month ($1 intro price) gold membership.

    So, I watched YouTube and Netflix.

    Is it weird calling her your wife?

    It's getting a little less weird, but yeah. Just like the girlfriend, fiancée transition, but initially much weirder. It's like that for both of us, because I'll occasionally joke by saying something like "Hey, wife..." or to her. (and she does the reverse)

    Seriously, though -- this console is just a glorified roku/appletv at the moment. (tho probably crappier at that job than either of those would be) If one year of XBL Gold costs $60, only $40 more gets you an AppleTV. But then that's another remote to keep around. Plus, in the event that I ever do get games worth playing with others online, I need that stupid gold account to do it.

    No need to develop it, because dogs aren't tree climbers.



    See the way it just spreads out like a parachute? A dog would have just gone splat (of course, it could never gotten up there in the first place, as dogs aren't climbers- not on it's own, anyway).
